I know that S4 has a lot of capabilities over my old phone so it's not really a question of whether it's worth it or not.

I have another question regarding its reliability (well, sort of). I'm kind of a ROM freak and I will probably install a lot of ROMs until I decide to hold on to one.
The S2 had (at some point) some issues and it could have been hard bricked through firmware updates. Does the i9505 suffer from the same problems? Can I hard brick it (irremediably) through firmware or kernel update (I'm asking in general)?

Thanks.

I see. Well, I suppose the most common variant is the i9505 (I can see it has the most topics in the specific development forums), so that's the one I'm inquiring for.

You can wait a couple of days and read what problems people have with wifi and sound.
Also read about knox and what it can do to future warranty claim.
