    So...rocking an S4, rooted and with touchwiz...I actually like it better than vanilla at the moment

    I'm in love. They gave me $100 for the S3 and that left $50. Gave a $50 gift acrd with purchase. Actually made $5 with employee discount.

    Hate browser. Neither chrome or stock reflow text correctly.

    Going to try this.
    I am very happy with the design, plastic and all. While some feel it has a cheap feeling, I don't. Perhaps not as solid as a metal device, I'll have to wait until Cas gets her One to decide, it feels solid and good in hand.

    I like the overall casing better than the s3. I can't put my finger on it but I just like the look better.

    Touchwiz is better. Maybe its the quick toggles or maybe its that I have grown a little tired of Vanilla Android. I haven't used the cameras special features yet, but I did notice the bump in the camera.

    The device is quick and responsive, as it should be when jumping to a quad from dual. Ive grown fond of the screen improvements as well.

    I dont care for the stock browser or Chrome. Neither reflows text well at all. Im using dolfin for now, and not thrilled with it.

    Battery life is better, but I havent used it properly. I keep flashing mods and rebooting.

    Im on stock tw, deodexed, with a 4 way reboot mod (recovery, reboot, hot boot, off), and hotspot mod. Ive installed Xposed with Wanam module and changed the colors I wanted as well as music skip/volume control and a few others.

    Im really looking forward to using this more. I totally happy with the device so far.

    Heh, a quick Google search lead me to an apk that downloads and installs the AOSP browser.

    Score! It works.

    Glad you are rockin the S 4 Jay, sounds good and I guess I'll have to check out the AOSP Browser as well. I'm using Dolphin right now.

    Everytime I went to xda dolphin would continually reload the page.

    So I've got what I need. AOSP browser, AOSP MMS app, and I've tweaked the hell out of the rest. Between Wanam, Xblast I've the look I want. With the mods I've added the features I am used too.

    that is why I prefer Android. With a little effort I have the device that is near perfect. All I need to do is find the perfect keyboard and I'm set. Love this one but doesn't have a custom dictionary. If it doea then I accidentally deleted it....

    Glad you are getting things the way you like them, making me very anxious to get my S 4 now. Hoping I will be able to tweak mine in as well.

    Ugh....battery life with custom kernel blows.
    Stock kernel solid. Who would have guessed I'd be stock???

    Roger, got any cases or screen protectors to review.
