Upgraded from the S1 Mini to an S4.

What have you been missing on? It's all the same shit.

That's awesome, dude, you're going to notice SUCH a difference.
Moving from my Galaxy Ace to S3 was like moving from dial-up to broadband. So many possibilities became available!

Incidentally, just the other day someone recommended a lightweight Android music player called Shuttle to me. It's fantastic and I'd highly recommend it. The free version is mostly unrestricted, and the full version is less than a pound.

Never mind all the crazy cool stuff it comes packed with, I just stare at the screen absent minded. The colors and the contrasts are out of this world.

I installed Shuttle and it's indeed awesome through its simplicity. Probably gonna keep it.

Can you recommend me a memory card(16GB or 32GB) that strikes a balance between quality/price/battery consumption? I know that the higher performance ones can drain the battery faster.
I need a memory card because the device has 16GB, but I can only use about 8GB because of its custom Samsung apps. I'm also afraid to install a clean Android or Cyanogen mod, I could void the warranty or something.

...IT HAS 8GB OF APPS?! D:

not really. apps+OS. This is something you can change though.
[EDIT] I think it has a different "System Storage" that is 9 GB out of which 1.84GB is used by the OS and currently installed apps. The other 8-9GB are the "general purpose" ones I guess.

Thats why i bought a Nexus 5 straight from google. No custom apps, no non- uninstallable bloatware... Its a wonderful phone. I had an S4 but it had sim card detection problems. Couldn't get through a day without it restarting because it couldn't detect it. Ugh.
Android is the way to go though. I had an S3 (which was stolen) but I loved the camera filters. Blue point for the win!

I've seen Nexus 5 at a colleague of mine. I don't like how it looks, plus you'd think because of its thickness it would have more performance and battery life but that's not the case.
Installing a fresh android(or cyanogen) on this one is just a matter of breaking the warranty, which I'm not sure of how it works yet.
What is Blue Point?

Blue Point was a filter that made everything grayscale except shades of blue.
The S4 doesn't have them unfortunately.

I have zero troubles with my Nexus 5 Battery, and the performance leaves nothing to be desired (for me, anyway).
