    It takes awhile to get through all the features of the phone. My fav. is the device while driving feature where the phone actually reads out the messages to you. You then have the option to call/send messages virtually hands free through dictation! The phone can pick up my southern accent and I don't have to repeat words. With this phone I rarely use my laptop. It comes with it's own version of a word document processor. It has the latest Android OS. I love the headphones that come with it. Very nice product. Samsung has done it again. I would never imagine going for an Iphone!

    Great phone in general

    The phone in General is great. You can do all your basic adjustments with the screen backgrounds, font sizes, app uses and so on. The only thing that kinda brings this phone down is the coverage in my area. Also I'm not sure if this just happens with my device only, but I tends to have few occasional times where I can't go back to 4G LTE after I leave a wifi area. Which kinda makes me mad because it has absolute zero connection due to it thinks it's still connected to wifi. Regarding the coverage though, messages can't be sent or received due to loss of it from time to time, which frustrates me. Other than that, maybe the price is a little too high...but overall it's a great phone and it works like it should, when the coverage is good of course.

    This Samsung galaxy s4 model made for use with metro pcs works great. I bought mine on sale at bestbuy which was $200.00 or more less than everyone else. It has most of the features that the latest models like the s5 has with a much lower price. All the good reviews I read in my research were completely correct. I was looking for a 5" screen with a good processor and good amount of device storage. Keep in mind this phone is only compatible with the highest plan with metro psc that is currently $60.00 so plan to upgrade if you don't. Also, if you activate online or by phone there is no charge for activation. There are tons of compatible accessories for the s4. I debated buying this phone but I am glad I did.

    Worst customer service

    WorstBuy

    Bought phone online and was unable to activate with MetroPCS. Called both MetroPCS and Bestbuy customer service support. Took 45 mins to get support from Bestbuy, before they told me they can't help at all because phone is not registered their phone activation system. Some how they shipped out the phone without releasing to consumer and nothing that MetroPCS can do. Wasted 2 days calling and traveling to MetroPCS store, Finally head to bestbuy store and only after talking second mobile sales person, they were able to help activate the phone. Definitely worst customer support from best buy online and bad sales person in store. Good price, but worst experience ever! Would never want to deal with them again!

    Bright. clear screen for texting and viewing web pages and photos. Enjoying some of the new apps found on the phone... however, I'm having a bit of a tough time with the Swype app that seems to be much more critical of my swype path and presents the wrong word way too often compared to the S3 I was using. I hope the S4 "learns" my swype preferences and begins to recognize the words I'm routinely using in text and email. I'm getting tired of correcting typos.

    Still not satisfied, but this phone is a good step up from my LG that was only 6 months old, I like the bigger screen and better picture, but that makes the phone really big in my small hand. Sound isn't very good, but I use a Bluetooth speaker often to make the sound better. LOVE the SHealth app that came with the phone. I use it religiously to track my daily walking, my food intake, daily weight. It's Wonderful!

    I am an Apple person. I have an Ipod, an Ipad, and i love it. This is where Apple doesn't win. Maybe it's just my opinion, but I find this phone so much better than the Iphone. Maybe if you don't have an Ipod or an Ipad, you need an Iphone for the apps and itunes, but then the screen is too small. The galaxy S4 is an amazing phone, I'm loving it

    Quick, 1080p hd display, beautiful large screen, thin, lightweight, and the best smartphone you can buy! The Samsung galaxy s4 has it all and it is fully loaded with some awesome features! This is a must buy so what are you waiting for? Order online or go out there and buy it ASAP!

    This phone is great because of the screen size. This makes it easy to use Maps and Navigation. It also takes good pictures. One issue I have is that I have slept through the alarm a few times because there are not enough noisy default alarm tones and the volume only goes so high.

    I thought of purchasing a more expensive phone like an s5 or a note but after some research I decided to try the s4 and I absolutely love my new phone no problems what so ever. I use my phone for the usual talk, text, bill pay, games, and stream movies and videos. I love the split screen.

    I made this purchase for my husband. He was a previous HTC owner and experienced issue watching movies. We decided to drop the contract phone plan and go with the Unlocked Samsung S4 for MetroPCS. He now has a more reliable and stable phone. Also, the monthly payment is much cheaper.

    i like the Galaxy, but sometimes the signals are very poor, and for the size of the phone I expect the ringing sound to be much louder, the smaller phones have a louder ring sound, however I will like to see all the bars up solid every time, so the proper signal can be obtained at all time everywhere.

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a great cell. Easy to use, great reception and picture taking, so much to learn. Friends who had iPhones switched to this cell and encouraged me as I shopped for a new cell. So happy I bought the Samsung Galaxy S4.

    I know this was a flagshipped phone but i got a couple of these for my parents and they love it, although I would have gotten them the Galaxy S5 but that is too much money at the time. The Galaxy S4 gets the job done with no hick-ups and they love the battery life on it!

    I like the appearance and design of the phone. the camera is great. There are plenty of slim cases to fit it which are nice. The only issue I have is metro PCs 4g service. It is unavailable a lot and when it is I cannot use my data services.
