Samsung Galaxy S4 SPH-L720 - 16GB - Purple Mirage (Sprint) Smartphone
Make every moment of your life meaningful with the Samsung Galaxy S4 from Sprint. The Galaxy S4 does what you want and what you didn't know was even possible. Erase a photo's background distractions with just a touch, catch every part of your child's somersault, or capture your view of the city skyline. Preview photos and files or read a news article without ever touching the screen. Use one screen to check Facebook as you catch up on email.
Offering a highly crafted design with a larger screen and improved battery life, the sleek and innovative Galaxy S4 is slimmer yet stronger, with less to hold yet more to see.
The Galaxy S4 features a 5-inch Full HD 1080p Super AMOLED touch-enabled display, a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera with Full HD 1080p video recording capabilities, 2-megapixel front camera, 16 GB of storage plus microSD memory expansion up to 64 GB (via optional card), 2 GB of RAM for excellent multitasking, a full complement of wireless connectivity (including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC), and enterprise-ready security features.
Catch Any Moment, Keep Every Memory
Equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, the Galaxy S4 also boasts a Dual Camera function that allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. When capturing moments, you can choose from a variety of frame effects that blend the two pictures naturally and also adjust the size of the small picture inside the big one. You can also select from eight different ways to combine the two photos taken by the front camera and the rear camera.
The camera includes 12 shooting modes, including the Drama shot mode that enables you to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse and Sound & Shot for storing sound and voice together as the picture is taken. Additionally, the Dual Video Call function enables you to make and receive a video call with friends and family while showing what you are looking at during the call.
Your special moments can be automatically stored in a photo album with the Story Album function. Photos are automatically gathered and sorted out according to your timeline, geo-tagging information, or a specific event to create a photo album.
And your photos and videos are showcased on the world's first Full HD Super AMOLED display. Its 5-inch screen has a 441 ppi (pixels per inch) pixel density for stunning viewing quality and Corning's Gorilla Glass 3, making it stronger and more resistant to scratches and cracks than ever before.
Bring People Together
More than just a personal device, the Galaxy S4 makes the most of your relationships and enables you to easily share and experience many of life's pleasures together with family and friends, wherever you are. With the Group Play function, you can enjoy music, photos, documents, and games with those around you without even requiring a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. You'll be able to connect directly to other Galaxy S4 users instantly. For example, the Share Music option enables you to have the same song playing on multiple phones in sync to create the best party atmosphere.

Take it at Your Own Pace
Offering a number of features for first-time smartphone owners as well as those switching from another operating system, the Galaxy S4 has a streamlined start-up wizard so you can begin using the device faster and learn about its unique features from the start.
Originally introduced with the Galaxy S3, Easy Mode has been enhanced by simplifying the home screen layout, camera, calendar, messaging and the internet browser to make the settings menu easy to navigate. Once you're more comfortable with the Galaxy S4, you can switch back to the standard home screen interface.
The Smart Switch PC application enables you to transfer contacts, messages, photos, music, calendar notifications and more from another phone to the Galaxy S 4. Smart Switch can identify favorite applications and recommend the same or similar applications within Google Play.
A Smartphone That Makes TV Better
With its infrared sensor (the same technology as your remote control), the Galaxy S4's WatchON feature can change the TV channel from your phone. And you get a custom TV guide that shows you what you like to watch. With Samsung Hub, you can watch more music, movies, and games with one app and one sign-in.
Protect Your Information
Not only ideal for personal use, the Galaxy S4 is also a SAFE-designated device, which means it has additional security features to safe-guard sensitive data and communications. The Galaxy S4 is the first Samsung device to include Samsung's KNOX solution, which provides comprehensive mobile security at the hardware level and enhanced personal privacy for individuals at the software level. It delivers industry-leading mobile security for companies with stringent security requirements, and allows IT managers to access and manage the passcode-protected work information without disturbing the content within an individual's personal space (including photos, emails, music files and social network data).

But that is NOT exactly what I got. Yes it's a Galaxy S4, so the Amazon listing isn't a lie exactly, but it's not the original version - it's the later Triband version. You can tell by the model number buried inside under the battery - the original version is SPH-L720 and the new version, which is what Amazon sent me, is SPH-L720T.
Why does this matter? Very simple: with the old version, you could use data while you were also talking on the phone. Like, if you're driving, following Google Maps directions, and talking on the phone with the people you're late to meet with.
With the new Triband version, when you are on the phone, you have no data. It all just stops until you hang up. Apparently almost all recent Sprint phones have this issue because they've failed to set their network up correctly - though that doesn't make much sense to me since the old phone did this just fine right up until last week when it broke.
Anyway, Sprint's problems are not Amazon's fault. What IS their fault is not properly advertising, in detail, exactly what they are selling.
Is this the old SPH-L720? Is it the new SPH-L720T? The listing doesn't say. Do they even know? I don't even know how to order exactly what I need or to ask for an exchange!
I would never have bought this one if I'd known which one it was. At this point it would be a huge trouble to switch yet again, so I haven't decided what I'm going to do. I'm angry at Sprint, and I'm angry at Amazon both. They should know better.
The only potential drawback with the Galaxy line is the rapid release of newer models or certain provider specific colors (i.e. purple was exclusive to Sprint). It is hard to keep up with Samsung's technology and as soon as you learn the features of your phone, a new generation is released.
Overall, I am happy with the phone and would certainly recommend it to others. The capabilities far outweigh those on the iphone, in my opinion (granted, this debatable and subject to personal preferences), but I have not regretted my purchase yet.
