Default Know issues and general feedback

I might be picking up an S4 very soon, I am looking for some overall feed back and known issues that people have encountered
If any one cares to share some experiences and links. I am not asking what other phones are good so let's keep this on topic

Thanks!

You can't go wrong getting an S4! Very snappy phone out of the box, I myself just like to root and get rid of the bloat and it runs great! As for ROMS, I will not go there, everyone has there own opinion. Be for warned, you will most likely get the SPH-720T, TriBand phone, not much support yet, maybe someday.

When you say no triband support are there no ROMs for the triband version ? Or the ROMs that exist are not working with triband

Roms work on a triband phone but you lose triband connectivity. So you will have LTE still but no Spark LTE.

I've had my S4 since release (preordered) and I have no complaints about the phone. Coming from a S2, it was a huge upgrade in every way. Even when compared to my Nexus 5 and Note 3, I like my S4 more, seriously.

I use Hololauncher as my launcher of choice and my phone is currently Rooted & running Xposed + several modules.

To increase enjoyability, I replaced the OEM battery with a ZeroLemon 3000mah one. Lasts longer, of course, and the battery has been quality.

+1 for Holo Launcher, I have bought nova and apex but I always come back to holo. Snappy, light and has just the necessary features for me. Huge improvement over stock launcher.
