To the OP As a iPhone user since day one, along with halving usually a few of every of iPhone ever released I I'll say this. Google SMOKES apple as far as syncing your music, photos and everything else. The trick is you need it all link to your google account. I have been dying to switch away from the iPhone for a couple years now and nothing has still done that, the Note 2 has been the closest. But when all this started and I tried my first serious android phone (galaxy nexus for Verizon) I was surprised as hell that everything I had synced to my phone immediately after I signed into the phone the first time after booting it up. If you do what I am about to say you will have seems less integration on your s4 and any android phone you buy in the future. - start a gmail account - sync all your photos to google picas - sync all your music to google music If you do this your stuff will sync 1000x better than iCloud does. Trust me I know. I still am using the iPhone 5 but iCloud is just horrible compared how easy google sync yours stuff. Sign in once to your phone and you are done.
