5 out of 5 eggsUpdated to KitKat last week

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (Unlocked) 16GB Black Mist 3G 5" Super AMOLED I9500

Pros: Hopefully KitKat will bring with it a bit more security. The 5 inch screen is a joy.

Cons: nonsense handwaving and other ridiculous features.

Other Thoughts: My company will not allow Android phones to access our intranet via VPN. Would much prefer to use the S4 than the unrestricted Iphone 5s i carry alongside the S4. I find it interesting that in spite of company access limitations, that a bunch of really bright PhD chemists and engineers are moving toward Android and Samsung at the largest chemical company in the USA.. It seems that Apple has adopted a bit of a Nokia mentality. The S4 is more like a computer and the Apple is more like a telephone.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent phone

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (Unlocked) 16GB Black Mist 3G 5" Super AMOLED I9500

Pros: Sound quality equivalent to IPhone 5. Larger display 1920x1080 display is superb. Use is reasonably intuitive and feels better for a long term Window. Fixed button placement - 1 hard and 2 soft - is better than soft buttons which wander all over the screen like the competitor. With ZeroLemon 3x battery phone runs for 4 days and is still shirt pocketable. 3G on this phone is reall H+ speed, maybe not LTE but still very very fast for streaming and downloads. Camera is good but too much nonsense and button interference for easy use.

Cons: Too many gimmicks and features which are essentially useless. Wish the S4 had same basic features as my old Galaxy Ace.

Other Thoughts: Bought this international phone early 2013 in Malaysia. After move to the states in 2014 it provides 3G and H+ speeds on both TMobile and ATT in Houston. TMobile 3G coverage is not so good outside of a large city. Now using it as personal device alongside a company provided Iphone 5S. The Iphone is elegant, especially the fingerprint button, but the S4 provides a more powerful and flexible smartphone platform

2 out of 5 eggsproblems with straight talk

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (Unlocked) 16GB Black Mist 3G 5" Super AMOLED I9500

Pros: Great phone, used with Movistar microsim in Spain, straight talk in USA.

Cons: Can't get MMS and data to work with straight talk. Their tech support gave two sets of APN data, neither worked, they say must be a phone problem.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (Unlocked) 16GB Black Mist 3G 5" Super AMOLED I9500

Pros: Works as expected. Actually way cheaper than from local electronic stores. I bought this at roughly $575 after a $25 promotion discount code. It's super fast compared to my GS3.

Cons: None so far. Planning on using this phone in China...we'll see.

Other Thoughts: Can't wait until GS5 comes out?
