We've been waiting patiently for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Developer Edition to be released, and it looks like it is finally available for Verizon.

Can you provide S4 performance comparison between touchwized and stock android?

Should be faster because Vanilla-flavoured Android isn't as resource-hungry as Touchwiz.

I would of done the same thing if I still had tmobile but over here in LA its coverage is soo spotty half of it is edge so an unlimited plan wasnt worth it, good thing i still have my grandfathered unlimited plan on verizon and at&t I used 20 gigs before on both and so far no problem and I have better lte coverage and overall nationwide coverage I rarely see EDGE on att or 3g on verizon were as with tmobile I would see edge in lots of places like on the 105 or on the way to vegas all edge or san fran was all edge were att n verizon have lte.

What a waste of a unit. All Samsung has to do is include a bootloader for all of their S4's. No one is going to pay $650 for this phone.

Wait. I can have an unlocked bootloader? Like the one I've had for over 6 months?

Beanstown just released Casual, based on Adam Outler's work, which is a one click root and bootloader unlock for Verizon S3s.
