    Well, I spent a few hours helping to set up my gf's S4 mini today. We have it pretty much set up but my god is there a lot of apps running in the background at all times! I thought that pressing and holding the home button then swiping across is all that you need to do. But digging deeper I found that there is like 15 samsung/google apps running at all times. And of course you can't just disable them on the spot.... No no! you need to download and app to disable the apps that are running.

    What a mess of an OS. Kit kat

    That might explain some of the battery life issues that are often spoke of with Android devices.

    Yep. I'm at 66% to her 28%. And had hers plugged in a couple times too. Hers discharging at about 6 percent an hour and mine is about 3 percent an hour

    A couple of her friends have S4 mini's and they love them. So she played around with it and seemed to like it. But now she isn't so sure lol. Still have 12 days to return/exchange it if she wants. Also didn't like the look of the HTC.

    Well, I spent a few hours helping to set up my gf's blackberry link today. We have it pretty much set up but my god it sucks at all times! I thought that plugging my bb in is all that you need to do. But digging deeper I found that blackberry link is running but doesn't recognize my BlackBerry at all times. And of course you can't just disable BlackBerry link on the spot.... No no!
