    If in the US that price is high, it would be $600-700 tops, probably $650.

    If not US then probably 700-800 I would think.

    I use the main space for all my game emulators and a lot of games are now well over 1GB. Factor in other data apps pull in and use as well. I use the sd card for music and video.

    Nope, 32gb (26GB of actual space) is not enough- especially if you are a gamer and do not want to juggle apps. I also have a 128GB iPad 4. Do not care for depending on cloud storage- especially with travel.

    If the S3 & Note 2 launch trends are repeated, AT&T, Sprint & T-Mobile will probably all launch around the same week. Verizon and prepaid carriers like Metro & US Cellular will probably be delayed a couple weeks from the main group.


    I think I saw an article that said the the T-Mobile GS4 will be LTE enabled and be available May 1st. Let me see if I can find it.

    Edit: Here it is: http://www.engadget.com/2013/03/26/galaxy-s4-expected-to-launch-on-t-mobile-on-may-1st/

    With the fact that T-Mobile's CEO opened his mouth (when he shouldn't have) about when they will have the S4, you can be sure that the other carriers won't be very far behind. There's no way that the other carriers would give any one of their competitors a chance to have the upper hand. No way.

    I figure that the first week of May will be the release date for many of the carriers in the US including T-Mobile and AT&T.

    I do have a feeling that when John Legere said that, the other carriers had a collective "oh crap" moment.

    Verizon could care less on who is first (as they have shown in the past). They think their trump card that overrides such concerns is their coverage map. I am serious, since have had several reps tell me this (they do not agree with this, but that is apparently the corporate leadership view).

    The further up the leadership chain, the more insulated you are in the bubble. Naysayers at that level are few and far, since they do not want to be kicked out of the bubble.

    My guess is early June for VZW. Late May..... maybe.

    My opinion of Verizon Wireless isn't very good right about now. Their claim is that they have the best coverage. HA! If they're the best network in America then I'd hate to see the worst.

    my experience is vzw does have the best coverage of all the major carriers. the gap is closing though. and with the expansion of free wireless networks their edge continue to melt away.

    i wouldn't switch carriers to get a phone, but that's cause vzw gets pretty much everything at some point. however, it is annoying that vzw seems to take longer than everyone else on new releases.

    Tell that to people in my city who have constant dropped calls on Verizon and you'd be laughed out of the room.

    Don't I know it, it really is a shame about how much extra time they take to release a great device.

    Remember, they have to take the time to lock the bootloader. :p

    How is AT&T Wireless when it comes to bloatware?

    I'm not sure if they're any better. All the us carriers seem to bloat up, with the sim unlocked international version being bloat free for the most part.
