Wait for lollipop in touchwiz. Then it'll be definitely better than stock android.

But for now, stock is better than older touchwiz used in s4.

But still I'm a fan of Samsung bcoz of its features & prompt & unmatched repair services in India.

100$ LG Mobile has the same UI of 800$ Lg mobile.

wat an innovation LG.

LG G2 one of the worst ergonomics i ever seen. Infact our Grand 3 S5 ergonics is far betta dan G2.

Stay with S4 black leather edition

only mobile tech would notice it. just some .% difference.

Also have a look at LG G2 32 GB and galaxy s5.

I have used this phone for 1.5 years and it has only freezed once or 2. All android phones freeze when a sh*tty program runs in infinite loop or throws an exception. It's bad coding, not the fault of phone.

Use good apps. Any phone will lag if you do too much with it. There is no phone which doesn't. Even the core i7 toting desktops freeze when these situations are true.

And AFAIK, you own a 2nd hand defective s4.

I have had nothing but good experiences until last week when I dropped it and totaled the screen and now paying off contract and getting new phone, but I recommend this for anyone who doesn't want to pay 100$ and a contract.
