Comment:
I had the Samsung SII and loved it, and was very dissapointed with the S4. After a few months, it became impossible for me to have a phone conversation; it started dropping calls all the time and with different callers.I checked several websites and I wasn't the only one having this problem; a lot of S4 users were experiencing frequent dropped calls. I took it to T-Mobile but they could only offer me a refurbished phone as a replacement. I have been on the look out for a patch to repair the voice call defect but there has been nothing. Since I was still paying for the phone and had no way to get out of it, I had no choice but to go back to my SII. I am finally done paying for it, and will most likely get a non-Samsung phone next time.
