    My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus which I'll be upgrading. So what phone are you replacing with the Samsung Galaxy S4? :big smile:

    If it doesn't have the same battery life as my Razor Maxx HD , I won't be upgrading at all.

    I'm currently using an HTC Droid Incredible 2. Yep... I'm in big time need of an upgrade- both hardware and software!
    If the GS4 doesn't up the ante on the GS3, I'm more inclined to upgrade to the GS3 or Razr Maxx Hd.

    Regardless, Jelly Bean and new hardware is mighty intriguing right now!

    Why, because it would be so hard to open the back and swap in a fresh new battery, LOL. It takes me a whole 30 seconds to do that on my S3, and let me tell you, carrying that extra battery in my pocket really weighs me down, LOL.

    Nobody should ever have to remove the back cover and swap a dead battery in the middle of the day. Word to the people at the drawing boards, these phones really aren't that big or heavy. If the phones were say 1 Millimeter thicker, how much more battery capacity could be built into the device?? And how much longer would the battery last on a single charge??
    Motorola already has this figured out and proved it with the Razor Maxx HD. The other phone makers need to take a lesson from Motorola.

    Launch day Bionic owner here. Upgrade coming in May so should be able to grab this phone after it's rooted and kinks worked out (if there are any.) Wife recently got the S3 and it really impressed me. S4 takes that to the next level so I can't turn it down. I like Motorola hardware but they don't seem to have anything mind blowing coming out. Any price guesses through Verizon? Hopefully not over $200.

    another Bionic owner. After the wife was ready to smash her Thunderturd, she snagged the S3 and I have to say, I was pretty impressed with it. The S4 just makes it even better. Isn't this new screen supposed to be a bit more energy efficient than the S3? that should help battery life

    Yet another launch day Bionic owner. Also, with extended battery. The battery in the S4 is just about the same size and should easily get me through the day the way my current extended battery driven Bionic does.

    Bring it on........

    Bionic for me. I've never owned a cell phone other than Motorola. StarTac -> Razer -> Rocker -> Original Droid -> Bionic. If this one is as sweet as I'm reading; I may jump. My best friend and I went on the Rock Legends Cruise II and he had a Galaxy S3 and I wasn't really knocked out. The plastic and Android wrapper were the culprits for me; I can probably live with these for the speed and cool features of the S4. I'm REALLY digging the 1080p 5 inch screen and camera reviews. Motorola never was known for taking good pics (understatement, LOL)

    Any KNOWN release date? I can't find one in my searches.

    THANKS

    Droid 4.

    I'm not sure if I will pay full price or wait until my upgrade (October, I think). I like my unlimited data but it would take me over 2 years to make up the difference in cost (if the S4 is $600 and the upgrade price is $200 - $400 cost difference/$15 per month savings on my plan) I would be paying between my current plan and the Share Everything plan . Meantime, kiddo is almost 13 and has a basic phone now, but not sure what the future holds for her data wise between now and then. If I get her a different phone before I make up the difference, I'll have to switch to Share Everything anyway. What do you guys and gals recommend? Am I missing anything?
