It would have been a lot better if it was also for Verizon and not ATT they don't operate the same. And I have Verison.

A much, much better guide is "Samsung Galaxy S4 for Dummies." Don't waste your time and money on this option.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of Samsung Galaxy S4 September 24, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good manual. I was disappointed for two reasons. One is that I expected something like "Galaxy for dummies", because I'm still not able to access all the camera modes, for instance. The second reason is that I purchased my Galaxy from Verizon, and all Verizon aspects are rigorously excluded. AT&T and other suppliers are fully treated. I think that this strange one-sidedness should have been made clear. It has discouraged me from trying harder to make the manual work for me.

The manual was well organized and had easy to follow steps for each operation. The only minor flaw was in the formatting of step numbers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Guide July 26, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This S4 "Guide" has NO index, just a table of contents. As others have noted, it's in black and white, with huge pages with little information. Not useful for trouble-shooting problems or really making use of the power of this smartphone. Bought 2 copies, one for my wife. Two useless books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic guide July 1, 2013
By Denise
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This manual is fairly basic and does help but does not have as much information as I would have liked. There are no tips to do things quickly and easily and there is no information on extras that the phone has.

More About the Author

Hey, thanks for visiting my page.

I'm Steve Weber, publisher of, where I post a daily list of five-star Kindle books offered free that day. I also have a book called "Kindle Buffet" (Guess what? It's free!). It's one of my several nonfiction tomes about bookselling and collecting, publishing, authorship, book marketing, and social media. You can check out all of my books right here on this page.

I'm from Charleston, West Virginia, and currently live in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.

In college I studied Journalism -- BS, 1987, West Virginia University (Let's Goooo, Mountaineers!) I was pretty green back then, and I figured a career in newspapers was just the ticket for a guy such as myself who enjoyed writing but had no ideas of his own.

After working several years as a reporter and editor, I started a home-based business selling used and collectible books online (mainly on Amazon). Five years later, I wrote my first book based on that experience: "The Home-Based Bookstore." It's a short book but it took me a long time to write it. I'd never written anything longer than 25 paragraphs or so, and had never used an outline since grade school. I still don't know how to use one. Maybe that's why it takes me so long to write, and all my books read like an upside-down pyramid ;-)

Recently I've been fascinated with publishing my books on the Kindle, and all the other great books available. I'm especially keen on checking out each day's free Kindle books, of course. They're irresistable, like candy or free beer. Or, as one Kindle Buffet reader put it, "They're like potato chips. Nobody can download just one."

I started Kindle Buffet in the summer of 2012, and it draws on my experiences in book-picking, interviewing, writing and publishing. I feel like I have a knack for recognizing what other people might want to read, and talking them into doing it. I figured it would take just 20 minutes a day to update the site and, for a while, it did. Just as with everything else I do, it ended up taking about 25 times longer than I'd figured. So these days I've got about 20 minutes left in my day after I've finished with Kindle Buffet.

A lot of people ask me how I manage to do it all. "Steve," they say, "how can you possibly read 60, 70, 80 books a day, seven days a week?"

My reply is always the same: "Doesn't everybody? I mean, c'mon, they're FREE! There's no excuse not to!"
