Ah. Yeah, Samsung packs so many features that while fun, they take up so much space.

When I had the S4, I remember on the 16GB version, there were actually only 9GB that you could use on the internal sdcard.

I haven't had time to really look at the update yet, but oh my God, the menu bar is ugly as sin.

Yeah that's why I switched to the Nexus 5. I just got sick of the Touchwiz look.

I do like the missed call and new text feature on the menu screen, that's pretty sharp. The faces on the text messaging is a nice feature as well. So, not all bad, but wow, that status bar (I called it the menu bar earlier).

Are these what the menu bars looked like before and after?
T-Mobile's Galaxy Note II Finally Gets Its Android 4.3 And Galaxy Gear OTA Update

I've got an S4 on AT&T, and I barely made it a month before rooting. I'm running LiquidSmooth 4.3 on it now, and it's fast as hell. I'm holding off from any KitKat ROMs until the kinks are worked out and the features are added back in.

It's so hard to hold off on custom roms. I'm on stock 4.4.2 right now with ART and my phone is so fast, but there are so many incredible looking roms out there.

No, Globo, those are both the same old status bars.

Here's what mine looks like now:

I'm so over rooting things, btw, it just isn't worth it to me like it once was. I'm basically happy with my phone. If I ever do get a Nexus, I'd be even less inclined to do it.

Yuck, that isn't pretty. That's what it looked like before I flashed a custom ROM on my S4. I always hated how cluttered Samsung made the notifications area. I love the toggle tiles interface of stock Android, and with my phones specifications and less Samsung bloat, my phone is blazing fast. It's a win-win for me.

Hopefully one day phones will be great enough where there won't be the urge to root anymore. It's a struggle when KitKat ROMs are already out there and you know that it'll be many months before your phone gets the update...

It you sell your S4 now, it would about cover the cost of a Nexus 5. That's what I did.

I'd do that, but I really have no problems with my S4 at all, especially with the custom ROMs.

i'm absolutely livid. for months i've been waiting until the end of march for my contract with t-mobile to expire since, gosh, i got my phone on 3/30/12. but now t-mobile is telling me my contract isn't up until june...wtf. why have two more months been tacked on to my contract, and why? i looked on best buy's site (such a uselessly awesome feature to have) to verify and yep, they're telling me my contract's not over until 6/12/14.

i'm pretty close to just saying fuck it because i'm so close to that 180 day period, shelling out $100, and cancelling the contract. i'd love to know what the fuck happened in june 2012 to extend my contract.

Um...yeah that's messed up for sure. Are you looking to switch carriers at that time or get an upgrade?
