1. Calendar is disaster. I can not see my whole day in one screen. Apple can revisit its Calendar in iOS6 to see what I mean. I may have to get out of apple iphone because samsung galaxy offers much better preview of calendar. 2. The icons looks cheap as if painted by a 5 year old using water color. It is a demotion fromicons on iOS6. Seems like Apple is not whatt it was a few years ago. You do not have to demote the areas that is best already (like Calendar).

I own a Galaxy S4 and I've just sold a Galaxy S3,which I've used less than 2 HRS,horrible. I have been using Iphones for ever Man! I still have the Galaxy S4,to me it is harder to use it. To search for something on the dashboard is not easy. Tweaking around a Galaxy is nice,I even put unlimited skips for pandora didnt have to root it. In my opinion the Iphone 5 is way superior. I have both Phones as we speak,I hardly used the galaxyS4.Still in the box I am about to put it on ebay for $650 unlocked
