Firefox is slow as shit on Android in general. Try using Dolphin Browser HD or Chrome. Also, do you know what particular OTA you got?

No idea really, opera was always fine and that's slow as shit now. I was on a custom rom then put it back to stock (gingerbread) and got a jellybean update. Bit of a pain but I think I'll just wait it out for now until my upgrade
Hope I can get the version with stock android, I'm really not a fan of touchwiz
Edit: its 4.1.2

So I have an upgrade available and I'm really used to iOS and iPhone's in general. I've been debating about switching over to Android or just waiting out until the fall to see what Apple has to offer, but I think I'm really interested in the Galaxy S4. I really like the fact that everything is customizable and that it has a better camera (I take a lot of pictures). Does anyone have an opinion of whether I should switch over?

I was gonna go for the S4 but I'm thinking about going for the HTC One now, it looks really smart.

I switched to the S4 for a month, and while it's a great phone hardware wise, I switched right back to the iPhone. It really comes down to whether or not you will find the extra features useful and if you can adapt to the OS. I would say not do it but every user is different.

Had mine for about 3 weeks now and I love it. I think it's certainly worth the money. Phone runs smooth as silk and has about every option/feature you can think of. Switched from using the iPhone for a long time and ain't going back.

The only bad thing I'll say about Samsung phones is that TouchWiz is fucking awful, stock android is much better

TouchWiz is horrendous, but Sense 5 doesn't seem much better if you're actually going HTC One. I have a One X and it's a great bit of hardware but I got rid of sense asap.

Yeah my buddy has a One X, I've had a bit of a play on it and it seems alright but I've not used it too much. I'm going to go into the shop and see what the score is, one of my friends girlfriends just got the new Sony Xperia and he is raving about it.

The thing I'm not keen about on the One is having all your social network stuff as your homescreen, not my bag. Is Sense something you can just uninstall or do you need to put a custom ROM on it?

This is my home screen and my lock screen at the moment and I'm still stock. All you have to do is install a custom launcher like Nova/Apex etc.
