"Made one of the best phones out there even better!!!"5.0 starson by want2cbetter
Pros: Best screen by far
Fast, fast, fast
Camera features are unbelievable
New software features integrate well
Better look and feel than the s3
Cons: Large screen leads to danger of cracking. This was the biggest problem I had with my s3. I loved the flip cover but cracked two screens in less than a year (yes,I am clumsy and prone to dropping phones). Do NOT get the flip cover for this reason.
Summary: I used to be a HTC fanatic.I only switched to the s3 last year as it had much better specs than the htc one s. I will not go back to htc - why?
I had the HD2, the HTC G2,and the sensation. All of them had issues: The sense overlay caused multiple reboots and crashes on the G2 & sensation,windows 6.5 caused it on the HD2. Also, the z hinge in the G2 would go bad after 3 months of heavy use. Still, they were all beautiful phones.
But, when I got the s3 I experienced a nice phone that did not crash. The S4 is even better looking and is easier to hold. The S3 was constantly slipping out of my hands. Not a fun thing for such an expensive phone.
The S4 is so much faster and, quite honestly, is that much more fun than the S3. Could I have waited another year and continued to use my S3? Yes, but I now have a faster phone with a bigger, better screen, more processing power and better software.
To sum it up, the S4 is not a necessary upgrade from the S3 but you won't be disappointed if you do.
