    Your post isn't making sense to me:

    Turn off what?
    Software lag is turned on by default!?

    HUH?!

    The main problem for me is the 16gb. I appreciate you can put all photos, music etc on the external card but say for example you wish to cache lots of music you have on google music - this can only go on the internal storage which is very very limited.

    I really like the Galaxy S4 but I wish it had a forward facing speaker or a kickstand like my HTC Thunderbolt did. When sound comes out of the back and phone is laying down it is hard to hear hence the kickstand or forward speakers would have been great.

    You should get a flip case so you can somehow make the phone 'stand' when you listen to music or watching some videos.

    So either you hold up your phone or just get a flip case.

    Btw, maybe you can try to find a case with a kickstand. I heard of certain cases having that feature. Not sure whether they still exist or not :)

    I hold my S4 when watching YouTube or HD movies from my SD card. The sound is still tiny and muzzled out. Max volume doesn't help.

    So I got my S4 yesterday. :)

    What a nice phone. Now I need to figure out how to use all the goodies it has. :)

    Sure, it's a great phone, I just have to decide which features actually work great and make the overall experience faster and easier. My previous phone was a DX and I wasn't all that impressed with the support from Motorola. I'm hoping my Samsung experience will be better.

    I had the S2 (loved it), S3 (hated it) and now have an S4, which I'm kind of ambivalent about. That's unfair - I like it....but I'm also the user/chooser for a small business, so recently replaced work handset (old Blackberry) and had BB Z10 (hated, sent straight back), BB Q10 (hated, sent straight back) then HTC One (love it).

    So now I've both the HTC One (work) & the S4 (personal). Both set up with identical apps/emails etc, just different phone numbers. I've found that at the weekend I sometimes swap the sims so that I can use the HTC One rather the S4. Guess that's a tacit vote to the HTC One.

    I've only had my S4 for less than a day and I'm beyond happy with it. It seems light years ahead of my Galaxy Note and I haven't experienced the lag issue that others have reported.

    Okay, we've been here before but I see some of you need reminding....

    Either play nice, play by our Site Rules, or don't play at all.

    That means:

    No inappropriate terms of language, whether disguised or not.
    No personal attacks.
    No trolling or otherwise inciting other members.
    Attack issues, not people. This includes groups as well as individuals.

    If any clarification of the above is required, please review the Site Rules (see link in my sig) and if still unsure PM myself or another moderator.

    If the above unacceptable behaviour continues, expect a time-out.

    Maybe try making a funnel or cover around the speaker to enhance the volume? I always do that with the speaker.
