True. So would you go with the SM-G900H then? Honestly don't even think we have Lte here anyhow.

I don't know. Which frequencies does it support? My point was, there isn't anything wrong with just having H+. It's very usable and quite good now. It was a few years ago that it was over congested.

If that's not a factor, you may consider the Exynos version or the European model. The European model will have the most support for roms.

EDIT: You can buy the G900M which looks like it fully supports AT&T 3G/4G/LTE

Makes sense, plus with my IT job and home I am really rarely on anything other than wifi, lol

Also sort of waiting to see if they release a 32gb version like the s4 I have.

Yeah. I had the AT&T version and I can you it that root and roms are necessary for a smooth experience. The device is still laggy, though not bad. Of course we both know the bootloader will never be unlocked because developers are just going to skip it entirely. That's to be expected.

If Google gets their own edition, that may be worth waiting for too.
