Default Thinking of getting this phone

Since I got a new job I should be able to get this or the S4.
The one I currently have is the Premia.

Not sure if any of you know about the Premia, but it's rather unimpressive. The Premia has 1.2 ghz and 1 gb of ram with an antutu score of 11917.

What are the specs of this one?
Antutu benchmark score?
How easy/hard is it to root this phone? What is the development presence?


I am on metropcs by the way.

I think most S4s score around 25-26 with AnTuTu Benchmark.

I don't think so. I live in TX, Google's servers seem to be up here.

The S4 has a fragile screen that will break on you at least once (not the glass, but the display underneath), costing you $200 to repair each time.

That is certainly not an absolute. I postulate that very few have that issue. But if it happens to you, it's 100%.

I'd go ever further and call the first post complete BS. Can that happen--yes, as is the case with any phone. Is it happening in unusual numbers--not from any reports I've seen.
