    True. After the bloatware, mine is down to 8.x Gb remaining.

    Wow that box is HUGE, what comes in the box that's different to everyone else? Or is there another reason for it? (if anyone knows this answer of course).

    This isn't my picture as my S4 is black but mines came in a box this size.......

    Went into AT&T yesterday to get the white S4, and they were all sold out of white.
    Five minutes later, a couple comes in, and both of them want white S4's, so the store manager calls around to find some local white S4's, and locates another AT&T with 4 of them. He made a trip to pick up three of those 4 and before he arrives at the other AT&T, the store sells the remaining white S4.
    I am really enjoying this phone, and how smoothly it runs!
    The only hiccup I have found is that twice while installing my apps from PlayStore, my phone decided not to download any more apps, and displayed an error message after each download failure. After a battery pull, both times, further installs went without a hitch, and it has not happened again, however, I will keep a watch on that.

    just picked up the 32gb version in black...i wasn't planning on it, but for the extra $50, figured it would be worth it over the 16gb version.

    It's so light!! I do not like the stock theme, especially the phone dialer & text screens, so trying to search out some good themes. Pretty quick so far, although i am having a tough time with some of the gestures working it seems. I'll watch the video link above later.

    Never rooted before on last android...thinking of it now.

    Well, regardless of everybody thinking Samsung are tricking the consumer with the 16gb s4.......I just ordered one for delivery tomorrow. So maybe I'm a sucker? But then.......I don't care. ;)

    Honestly, the 16GB model will probably work fine for 99% of GS4 users. It will probably work fine for me. But if I have the opportunity, I'll swap it for a 32GB model, just to have the additional headroom. And if I can't, I won't sweat it.

    Got mine wednesday, I originally went in the store with the intention of buying the note 2. However when my fiance saw the s4 she instanly fell in love. One credit check letter we walked out the tmobile store s4 in tow.

    First impressions are generally good. Huuuuuge fan of the screen, being a long time samoled hater because of the yellow/blueish hue. Im proud to say this screen has none. Its bright, its beautiful, and 1080p movies look gorgeous. Color accuracy is greatly improved over the gs3 also.

    Battery life seems pretty good so far, further analysis is needed. I've been on it pretty much constantly, which is the reason I've had to charge it quite often. That said it's been off the charger for about 7 1/2 hours and it's at 43% , thats with heavy use.

    I wonder if its because you're outside of the United States. Isn't yours the Octi-core and not Quad-core as in the U.S.? Just a thought. Haven't read through all the threads yet so I don't know if anyone answered that yet.

    Got my verizon white s4 this morning when the verizon store opened. Thought I was going to have to use one of our business line early termination waivers but ended up being eligible for an upgrade anyway (I just got my galaxy nexus in december of 2011)..so Im pretty happy! Didnt auto load my apps when I signed onto gmail...guessing its a samsung thing or a setting that needs to be changed..but happy none the less.
