Preordered the gs5 and was just wondering how many other will be leaving the active for the s5?

I stay with active till something's betters with removable battery sd card and lcd screen comes out. I don't have money to switch phones every year, switching them 2 years if lucky.

But if I would win in lottery than I would wait for s4 active 2 or 3 version. Regular s4 has much better software support but I can't stand AMOLED screens and fast permanent screen pixel burn in. That's why I didn't bought s4.

New touchwiz is looking nice and I love to have live hdr in photos and videos

Ah I forget Im still Knox-free so I can root without losing permanent warranty but still on 4.2.2 I need 4.4.2 for Talk back but without Knox and with touchwiz stuff. At best with new touchwiz but this won't happen

Considering most of us have had our S4As less than a year and are on contract, I'd say it will be awhile before we can even think about switching.
Google Nexus 7 32gb Wifi
Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (rooted)
Samsung Galaxy SII (sold)
Samsung Captivate (traded in)
HTC Tilt 2 (on bedroom duty)
LG Incite (long gone)
RAZR V3 (my 1st net-enabled phone)

Oh yeah. I would have been fine with the S4A if Samsung had not ruined my phone with the ML2 update. Battery life is much worse (yes, I have replaced the battery with an official Samsung one), wifi and GPS are broken.

Stock everything . . . for now.

Has anybody noticed this? If you open the little USB cap and hold it really close to your ear, you can hear a tiny voice scream, "Unlock me!"
