Yeah I'd imagine it is now, like Zoddex says though if I buy a new phone that has no new features then all I'm really gaining is a bigger screen, and processing power obviously. Whether the features that I would lose are actually features and not just gimmicks I'm yet to decide..

Why isn't there a nexus style ROM with all this built in lol

Thanks for taking the time to post everyone, I'll let you know what I end up doing, I'll likely be coming back home with one this afternoon I reckon, and then use it with TW for a week if I can before I start flashing ROMs...

To use TW u need to buy the non G model.
Might be able to put a TW firmware on a G model.. but i don't really see the point

And i guess they come with knox bootloader pre-installed huh? Unless u find a retailer with a non updated 4.2.2 version instead of 4.3
While the G model is knox free so far.

It's probably running 4.2 but can be updated to 4.4. When I received my S4 ge in early October it had 4.2 on it but updated to 4.3 as soon as I wen through initial setup.
