Btw, fair warning to everyone.... this topic may end up moving to the Android Lounge
or even Politics & Current Affairs
, depending on how it develops. No need to get any panties bunched up if it does - we simply prefer to keep device-specific forums clear of more general subject matter, and this definitely has implications beyond just the S4.
p.s. If it degenerates into a slag-fest it will be locked down. While I understand the pro-Android bias, try to remember that there's very likely a similar topic running on various iOS forums saying exactly the same about Samsung. The only winners here in the long term are the lawyers - all end-users, regardless of preference, will likely suffer to some extent.
