I recently decided to ditch Verizon and my contract with them and go with a no-contract carrier. At the same time I decided to upgrade my phone (Motorola Droid X2) and after comparing many different options settled on the Samsung Galaxy S4. Before switching to Android in 2010 I was an iPhone owner so I will also try to give my perspective on that end here.

--------------------
Initial Impressions:
The S4 is a really nice piece of hardware. Aesthetically it is light-years ahead of my old Droid. My wife settled on a white S4 which is very clearly inspired by Apple's consumer electronics design philosophy. I settled on the 'black mist' phone and it's equally impressive though a bit more rugged looking. The screen is huge and incredibly clear. In comparing the S4 to the S2-Note the phones aren't that different in terms of dimensions. Though the phone is large it is very slim and fits easily and comfortably in my pants pocket.

--------------------
Specifications:
As I mentioned the S4 is a large phone due in no small part to the 5" screen. The exact measurements are: 136.6(l) x 69.8(w) x 7.9(h) mm. For being packed with technology the phone is a svelte 4.6 ounces or 130 grams.

The screen features 441ppi, 1080p resolution (1920x1080) and is a wonder to behold. App tiles, widgets, images and video are crisp, clear and instantly made my previous phone seem incredibly antiquated.

The processor comes in two different flavors. My phone comes with the 1.6GHz, Octa-core processor though a 1.9GHz Quad-core processor is also available. The S4 features 2Gb of RAM. Memory comes in at either 16/32/64Gb built-in and expandable via MicroSD. The S4 accepts up to a 64Gb MicroSD card.

I did not realize there are TWO versions of the Galaxy S4: the I9500 and the I9505. The I9500 features the Exynos Octa core (8 processors) which has better benchmarks and the I9505 features the quad core (4 processors) Snapdragon 600. Problem is that the I9500 version is NOT LTE enabled.

Regardless of whether or not you buy it as the "international" version or not, if you get the I9500 version, it maxes out at HSPA+ speeds (which is marketed as "4G" on some carriers like T-Mobile but is NOT to be confused with 4G LTE which is faster.) You can see specifics in Wikipedia: [...]

I love everything about the phone. The blue color is beautiful. I had no problems getting a MetroPCS (owned by T-Mobile) SIM and running it on their 3G/HSPA+ networks. It's a GSM device so I could also bring it to AT&T if I wanted. The 5" screen is gorgeous and it's truly an awesome device. It was unlocked, unbranded and official as listed.

But all that said, I'm really frustrated because I did not know this or find this out until after my 30 day return period had passed. And when you spend $550 for a phone, you want to get the most out of it which includes the fastest speed possible for the longest amount of time.

So head's up to those wanting an unlocked/unbranded S4. Make sure the device is the one you want: I9500 for the better processor but no LTE or I9505 for slower processor but faster LTE service.

I recently bought the Galaxy S4 from FGS Trading thru Amazon. Unfortunately the phone broke down only after a few weeks of using it. I called Samsung USA to schedule a repair and was SHOCKED to hear that it can’t be repaired here in the USA because the phone that was sold to me is an AFRICA phone !!! Any repairs will have to be made in AFRICA!! UNBELIEVABLE!! I live in the USA and bought this phone from a third party merchant thru Amazon which both are also from the USA. I do not think that it is unreasonable for me to expect that the phone can at least be repaired here in the USA. I am even willing to pay out of pocket to get it fixed here in USA. It is unthinkable that I have to ship this phone halfway around the world to Africa just to get it fixed!!!

I bought the phone for $616 and AT&T sells it retail for $640 (without any contract). So its not like a “you get what you pay for” kind of deal. The price that I paid is very close to the AT&T retail price, its not like half price or anything like that. If it has been properly disclosed in the listing or product description that the phone can only be repaired in AFRICA, I would have NOT bought it at all. Not at $616!! Would you???

International version phone simply means that it is a GSM (multiple frequency bands) phone which can be used while travelling abroad. Thus avoiding those pesky and pricey roaming charges that the phone companies charge. International version does not in any way means no US warranty. If it is, why not just simply state "No USA Warranty"? Warranty is probably one of the last things that will be on a user’s mind. But don’t take it for granted.

Always assume that the phone is from AFRICA and there is NO WARRANTY in USA. Do not get SCAMMED like me!!!

Here is what Amazon.com customer service told me"I am the Team Lead for the A-to-z Guarantee Claims Department. I am responding to your email regarding order xxxxxxxxxx. While I understand your concerns, the A-to-z Guarantee only covers situations where the item is different than was advertised. I understand that you feel the item was different because it does not carry a valid U.S. warranty, however this is an international version cell phone. International version cell phones have international warranty through the country of origin. In this case, it appears the country of origin in South Africa.

In response to your question, yes, you will need to contact Samsung South Africa and work with them under the product warranty. The item does not carry U.S. warranty, nor was it advertised to carry U.S. warranty. In short, neither Amazon nor the seller ever represented the phone as having a U.S. based warranty as the phone is advertised as an international model.

We understand that you may not agree with the decision in this case, but we will not be able to assist you further. There will be no further response to your e-mail messages regarding this transaction.

We are hopeful you are capable of resolving your concerns with Samsung International.

Thank you for your interest in Amazon."
