Yes, the first version of the s4 because it doesn't use triband. Also, other service providers phones have the ability because they utilize different network radios in their phones.

My S3 could multitask while on a call and navigate the internet or any other application, but I was rooted, wonder if that made a difference.

I think this phone is awesome. The camera for me focuses extremely fast and takes some amazing pics. The screen is very nice I love amoled. Battery life is great the phone boots up really fast. The bezel is great it doesnt feel like its just gonna slip out of your fingers like the s3 did. I do wish qualcomm woulda included svdo though I think that just makes sense. The usb 3.0 port is awesome. I cant say anything negative about this device.

I'm also loving this phone. I just exchange HTC One M8 and got this one instead.

I finally sold my m8 after 2 months of disappointment. Found a sealed s5 on swappa for $485 and should have it in a few days. Went back to the trusty s3 for now.

It;s the first time I have been fully satisfied with a phone, the UI and the speed of it. I have no complaints about the actual phone. No desire to root and install custom roms. I've had Galaxy S1, S2 and S3, modded all of them etc....and custom roms always ended up glitchy and unstable compared to stock roms. They might have been a bit quicker, but not stable, ever. This S5 is just perfect. Love it and everyone that I let use it loves it.

I'm so torn. I usually immediately put Nova Launcher on the phone to replace my previous S2,3,4 device TouchWiz Launchers. But this generation of TouchWiz just works so well and looks really good. The widgets are excellent and made compatible with other launchers (for the first time ever), the touch animations are nice and smooth, the transistions take the amount of time I expect, and the applications open quickly. I even love that they put the TouchWiz hotword in there so if you are on the main home screen with the Google Search widget it will launch Google Now for you. It is outstanding. The only improvement, and perhaps this is user error, but I don't know how to get the phone to wake to my voice anywhere but in Driving Mode.
