Overall the Samsung is a great phone, but there are a few things that I am trying to solve. I hope you guys may have some ideas and steer me in the right direction:

1.) Auto scroll up. If you are on a lengthy web-site, and you want to scroll up quickly, how do you do it with the S4? With the Iphone, you simply tap the top of the screen.
Doess the touch function disappear when you use smart scroll? If not, what stops you from scrolling quickly with a finger?

2.) I love the swipe feature to delete old texts and emails on the Iphone. Is it possible to get this with the S4? At a minimum, how do I delete multiple emails/texts at the same time?
Fully possible in GMail. Multiple selection is possible both in GMail and Messaging.

3.) MMS, why is it so terrible with the S4? It takes far too long to attached images and you are limited to how many images you can attach. Even when I resize the images, I can't seem to attach more than 3 pics at a time!
Because Apple uses a custom solution that is not compatible with anything else.

4.) When texting, sometimes I want to get rid of the keyboard so I can see more of the text that's already been sent. With the Iphone you simply tap the upper half of the screen and the keyboard disappears. Why can't I get rid of the keyboard with the S4? The only way I have found to do it is to hit the "back" key and then go back to the text icon. That's lame.
just tap anywhere outside the text box and it disappears - too difficult?

Any solutions for these annoyances?

Thanks guys!
The only solution is learning to use the phone. Sorry to be blunt, but these are not annoyances. You are trying to use this as if it was your iPhone and it is not, never will be. If things like this are something you cannot overcome,, you might need to exchange S4 for an iPhone 5.

Mate, read the manual, you might lear something about the device you bought!
