Samsung Galaxy S4 – I’m quite impressed

Oh darn! I ruined the entire review. Here I was, going to tell you what I thought of the Samsung Galaxy S4, after my first week of use… and I gave away the ending in the title. Well, you know what? Screw it. I’m going to tell you what I think anyway because “I’m quite impressed” means very little to you, the discerning internet denizen. You want details, damn it,...
