Check out how the leaked Android 4.3 ROM for Galaxy S4 behaves before you jump the gun (video)
The newest Google Edition Android 4.3 ROM already leaked out in a suitable for download and installation form, so a bunch of you are already thinking about taking it for a spin.

Before you jump head first, have a look at the hands-on video below of the ROM running on an European S4 version to determine whether it is worth it for you or not.

Granted, you get a general idea about the main changes compared to what you have installed now, but considering most of them are under the hood, the shift is not that visible.

Just checked it this morning and its very similar to what we have on 4.2.2 P.S. - I just installed the new camera apk and boot animation from Google edition s4 on my nexus and it looks great.

I think it's still the same 9gb.. To get the full 12gb available like the s4 google edition the memory on the original s4 will need to be re partitioned which is risky..
