[Q] buying a used galaxy s4. worth it
note mods and admin i am sorry if i am in the wrong area or there is a thread just like this.
to who ever cares. why i created this thread-i got my galaxy s4 last summer, on mf3 build, i wasnt in to flashing roms until i started having issues with it after the 30 day was up i think. well flashed a rom and all is well. well i wanna get back into flashing aosp and other roms. like i had on my gs3 (if yall care about the issues i had it kept on freezing on me and had to do a batt pull (i had a black screen and pwr button didnt do anything.) and att didnt wanna help samsung said 2 weeks for them to see it.)
guys i saw a used galaxy s4 at a game store for $400 and that got me thinking if its on mdl not sure if it was the guys there were to lazy to let me see it (i think mdl is the preferred one since i can run loki) i was going to get it today, (only if my s4 brought in a good amount like 200) but i knew better then to show them to see what i could get due to custom rom on my phone. would it be worth getting one like that (i prefer getting one in person, or taking a gamble and buy used one online, i know people can post what ever online. or they could update it to the latest version before they ship it.
or would it be worth waiting to see what happens with the bootloader. (just asking)
another option and off topic. i kicked around is a droid maxx (the one that they showed on tv) that batt life is what pulling me in, but the specs told me, my phone is better in every field.
guys i thank you for the help,
and there will be a poll if yall choose other please give a reason why. thank you
edit i am open to ideas but preferred is the gs4 on mdl
