Fresh off of a vacation and on day 18 of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 challenge, I keep bumping into a storage space limitation - which was particularly frustrating while I was traveling.  With no desire to find a microSD card (and on the small island I was on in Hawaii, the search probably would have been futile), I resorted to deleting pictures each time I got close to the storage limit - which was quite often.  At one point, I couldn't install app updates because there wasn't enough storage space on the phone.  I'm going to snag a microSD after work one evening this week, so I'll keep you updated on how it performs.

(As I mentioned in the video, AT&T now offers the 32 GB Samsung Galaxy S 4 - though it's $50 more expensive than HTC's One, which offers 32 GB of internal storage with no microSD card slot)

Otherwise, battery life continues to be a nice balance between the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II.  It's nice to have a battery that can make it through the day, in a phone that's not too big in the pocket.  I'm a big fan of the 5-inch smartphone size, and much like the HTC DROID DNA, the size of the Galaxy S 4 seems to be just right for my use.  Camera quality was impressive throughout the trip.  It was my primary shooter on my adventures, and I was very pleased.
