Friday Poll: Do You Use Facebook?

facebook4

Next Thursday, we’ll assume that Facebook is going to announce something significant in terms of their social network and how it interacts with Android. They have invited a ton of press to an event that will show off their “new home on Android.” Rumors suggest that it will be a partnership with HTC on a software front, that will put Facebook at the front of a mobile experience. It may not be the forking that Amazon has done with Android for the Kindle, but your phone will constantly remind you that you should be using Facebook for all services. It’s an interesting move, but one they probably needed to do as their mobile experience has yet to thrill Android users or investors.

So as Facebook has dominated the airwaves over the last day because of this news, we’ve seen enough snarky remarks throughout the comments and elsewhere on the internet to base today’s poll on. Are the youth still using it or have they moved on? Is it a service that only stay-at-home moms continue to use? We want to know if you use Facebook. Facebook clearly wants you to use it more while mobile if they are looking for smartphone partners.

We’ve sectioned the poll off by age, so be sure to vote in the correct area.

Do You Use Facebook?

  • Jon

    Nope, I don’t use Google+ either. Same thing.

  • Mathieu

    I can’t answer Yes or No to this question.

    I still have an account on Facebook but I never post stuff over there anymore and I’m following only my family and closest friends through notifications emails (in Gmail).

    I do share Netflix, Spotify… stuff but it’s automatic.
    I do use “The Graph” to find my “friends” on other services (just like I use other social networks graphs to find my other “friends” or people I follow).

    • matt

      Sounds like a yes to me.

  • Dre Garner

    Yes I do but I use Google+ just as often and prefer using it over Facebook.

  • kane

    So I guess I’m not the only person that doesn’t use Facebook. I decided before It got super popular. Now it just seems really obnoxious so I won’t be joining

  • Granted

    This is a marketing survey, plain and simple. You always attempt to package these like you are not getting paid to pimp your reader’s, but it is always so incredibly transparent. You should try being honest when you sell out your reader’s for a quick and filthy buck.

  • I got Facebook in mid 2005 when it was awesome and exclusive to college students. It slowly turned into a giant POS and in early 2010 I deleted my account (completely deleted, not just disabled). Facebook is a disease. A time wasting disease. A cultural disease. I kid you not, I recently saw a short clip on the news about people getting engaged (note: I walked into the room and it was on the tv…) and they were showing two people that just got engaged at a computer and the female said “Now it’s official.” They updated their status on Facebook and that made their engagement official. I wanted to punch her in the face.

  • chris420o

    If your a young adult n dont use fb or have fb your a loser n prob dont get laid much simple as that…now there are reasons not to some people dont want eveyone up in their business n such or like ive gotten rid of fb in the past bc i had a crazy gf at the time but those the only reasons…im not surprised over 2000 people on a tech site called droid-life said no sadly…. Smh

  • For me, I have a Facebook account, but rarely use it for more than a birthday reminder app and an easy way to wish people happy birthday.

    If I wasn’t lazy, I would get phone numbers for everyone in my Facebook account, put their birthdays into my phone contacts and ditch Facebook.

    I’ll say that Facebook is really only good for keeping in touch with friends and family who are overseas.

    I would NEVER, EVER consider a dedicated Facebook phone.

  • flosserelli

    You do not like facebook spam?

    I do not like it, Sam-I-am.

    I could not, would not, on a boat.
    I will not, will not, with a goat.
    I will not use it in the rain.
    I will not use it on a train.
    Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
    Not in a car! You let me be!
    I do not like it in a box.
    I do not like it with a fox.
    I will not use it in a house.
    I do not like it with a mouse.
    I do not like it here or there.
    I do not like it ANYWHERE!

    I do not like facebook spam.

    I do not like it, Sam-I-am.

  • socalrailroader

    Yes (I’m between 41 and 50 years old). (5%, 319 Votes)

    I don’t believe that, I’m 41 and there are a LOT of people on Facebook as old and older than me, more and more seniors too are geting on it, my dad for example, he’s 78.

  • This is just a poll of the age of Droid-Life readers. You should have age groups for the “no” responses as well.

    • carl

      Probably disguised marketing research for Facebook or Google.

  • Kizaru Hiruko

    Yay! An easier way for people to tell too d**n much about their lives! It’s just what I wanted! /s

    This is why I don’t use social networking. E-mail and SMS are my preferred methods of contact.

  • Seth Schorr

    Hell no! Facebook is made for children and the child-like. There is no serious information that is ever disseminated on this wall of trash.

    • Jason

      I agree. Same for Google+.

  • Anthony Saylor

    I cannot stand the fact that the main way i can communicate with the majority of my friends at one time is through facebook. Google+ has surpassed facebook in every area that i can think of, and i am trying to make the switch to it. The only thing holding me back is that none of my friends (mainly those with iPhones) will use it.
    They have no good reason why they will not make the switch, and some even acknowledge that Google+ is superior

    • ERIC REED

      I’m an iPhone user and use G+ as a RSS feed, but show them the instant upload feature. It’s a good way to get them interested, saves space on their phones, and gets them using the App.

  • dcdc

    Facebook is for kids and seniors.

  • RaptorOO7

    I log in to wish happy birthday to friends but that’s about it, FB is not my life and don’t get how so many make it such a major priority.

  • Reisen Udongein

    I left Facebook ages ago since its just such a crap site and I’ve had it for a few years, but I much prefer Google+ now. I don’t my future phones to be full of that crap, we have enough problems with manufacturers bloatware as it is.

  • Rennie Allen

    No fb app on my phone, and fb account deactivated for 1 month.

  • Yes, I’ve also replaced SMS with FB Messenger for the most part.

  • Grimlyte

    Kindof wish there was a yes, but i hate it, and i only use it because i feel i have to.

  • Jamesu513

    I have it but don’t use it.

  • Evan Whitaker

    Android is about choice. If HTC made big ties to FB I personally would absolutely NOT choose to buy an HTC device.

  • Seriously? That many? Man, I thought everybody had Facebook.

    • the_real_patrick_bateman

      That’s the best reason I can think of not to use it. I hate people.

  • Robin Giltner

    Does only using Facebook as an oauth provider count ?

  • FacebookSucksDick

    people who use fb are retards. seriously. a company that tracks you everywhere, knows more about your search habits then you, and with a boss who hates the people who use the service. ill pass on that.

    • the_real_patrick_bateman

      I can’t tell if serious, or if back-handed comment about Google. Not that it matters, it’s true of both companies. Except for the boss thing, I don’t know what that’s about.

  • lye

    This poll would have been really interesting if the “no” answers had age ranges too.

  • Me personally, I don’t use any of the social crap on the internet. I do use twitter slightly, but the reason I use that is to keep up with Android news and maybe pass on a few things to a few people I follow. Also for my youtube just to make it somewhat convenient I suppose. Otherwise, I avoid any and all social networking. If people want to stay in touch, here’s my number, and here’s my email. Email being the most reliable since I can answer those fairly quick.

    Shame, I actually did lose a lot of friends over my high school years, so I don’t know what happened to them.. Had some good friends too.

  • hldc1

    Would like to have seen an option for, “Yes, but reluctantly.”

  • Medications

    The only people i know who don’t have Facebook make sure that they let everyone know that they don’t have one, which is probably their main reason for not having one.

    Google+ serves a different function than facebook, G+ is good at being G+ but it sucks as a facebook replacement so it will never be one. So all these “nope i use G+ instead its way better because its not facebook lolol #toocool” posts are irrelevant non-points

    • the_real_patrick_bateman

      I don’t have a Facebook account. It’s nothing I’m proud of, it just looks like a waste of time. And I don’t have anything against wasting time farting around on the internet, but there is very little content on facebook worth reading. Maybe my friends are less interesting than yours, but I doubt it.

  • elemeno

    Do you have a baseline reference for what age groups your readers fall into regardless of facebook use?

  • gtg465x

    Are we talking about the service or the app here? Yes, and no. The Android app is awful. I can’t imagine buying a phone full of their terrible software.

  • Michael Quinlan

    Despite the double negative giving the poll option the opposite meaning of what I believe you intended, I voted “No, I do not use Facebook”, as it seems to be the only choice that could be interpreted as a negative response.

    Why are there no age groups associated with the “no” response? Without it you can’t determine what percentage of respondents in an age group use Facebook.

  • wetnap

    All the zombies love the Facebook

  • Droid4LifeDawg

    I do, but only because so many family and friends have not caught on to Google+ and besides, when you have Teenagers that believe it to be their personal private journal, every now and then I have to be the FB Police. I Post (via Scope, Friendaster or Buffer) but rarely visit. Don’t need anything else facebook on my AnDroid at all…

  • I normally go on there once a week. Have family in Jamaica and England, and that’s a good way to keep in touch with them.

  • Liderc

    I use it daily, but I never really post anything myself I just read other people’s stuff and I also use it for work to communicate in groups.

  • uhm, I do use it, but I’d love to not use it in the future…

  • I’m an outlier on the age graph, so….umm, my answer is yes, but not really. I don’t post or comment much and check it maybe once every week or so. I have spent a lot more time on G+ than FB.

  • I use it very little. Google+ more my style.

  • Michael Hunt

    Yep, it’s hard to stalk friends without it.

  • Trevor

    I use Facebook fairly sparingly. Wish I could say I was using Google+ for all my social networking desires, but not enough of my acquaintances use it.

  • Brandon Golway

    I’ve had a Facebook account since 2005, but my usage of it has definitely declined over the past years. Where I used to spend hours a day throughout the day, I now spend maybe a half hour total throughout the week. Facebook has just gotten way too annoying (My ex-girlfriend, who is a HUGE facebook addict [she would check it like every 10-15 minutes] recently deactivated her account because it was getting too annoying, that says something). I’m on Google+ most of the time now because it’s where I post all my things from my RSS feeds.

  • Justin Winker

    Yes, but only once every 1-2 months..

  • DanWazz

    Gave it up about a year ago. Instagram and Twitter fill the void nicely.

  • shooter50

    I’m guessing most of the no votes are not being completely honest

    • zwade

      Why would people lie about not using it? Just because you think it’s the greatest thing ever doesn’t mean everybody uses it.

      • shooter50

        Because its difficult to believe that 30% of any demographic, even the cynical droid-lifers are not using Facebook to some extent.

        • zwade

          I was surprised at the amount of “no” votes as well, but why lie?

  • Kind of ironic that I got to this poll from Facebook.

  • Although I use Facebook to just check up to see what friends might be up to, I don’t whore over Facebook 24/7. I’ll check it once or twice a day but I certainly don’t want a Facebook phone/home screen. The Facebook app is terrible enough as it is.

  • Jason

    More than show me who uses Facebook, this poll showed the demographic of the people who visit droid life. I was surprised to see a majority of people are over 21 and then some. I’m 19 and have been a usual visitor for the past 3 years. Figured the others were around there.

    • S2556

      Same, I’m 20. The no category kind of messes things up though

  • H

    Why no age-breakdown on the “No I don’t..”? That’s the good intel.

  • David Caccavo

    ive been on for 8 or 9 years and i regret signing up. Slowly weening myself off of it. I have no interest in a FB phone though. App is fine.

  • Dain Laguna

    Personally, i feel like instead of whatever they are going to show us (widget, blinkfeed-esque type thing/htc handset), they should be doing a ground up holo themed app with TABLET support.

    • Rodeojones000

      Yes, tablet support would be fantastic.

  • br_hermon

    Funny you should ask, I was just gutting my facebook today and filling out my G+ profile. I think I’m going to start posting all of my G+ updates to Facebook. No photos, no likes, no follows, etc on FB just posts telling people if they want to find out whats going on with me, check G+ 🙂

  • Jag28

    Wow we got old people reading this site 50+

    • EvanTheGamer

      I’m one of those people. How dare you call me old! It’s 50 years YOUNG not OLD!

      Damn whippersnappers!

  • Dain Laguna

    There should be a ‘yes, i use facebook, sparingly ( i’m between 21-30 years old)’ option 😉

    • Tom Ball

      I 100% agree. I have an account but have used it less and less over the last several years.

  • Nope. I quit when I felt like it was occupying way too much of my time. It’s required for work too but somehow I have gotten away with not having one. I’m 30.

  • Ben Schulz

    you should also add a question so that we can see what the age distribution is among normal droid life users 😉

  • Ivan92116

    yes I do, but I rarely post anything…I use it (and twitter) mainly as a news feed and to enter contests.

  • PopeFrancis

    I use Google+ mostly for following news, sports, and such.. No Facebook.

  • Rodeojones000

    I use it (31-40 age bracket) but sometimes I wish I didn’t. Problem is, it’s a good way to keep in touch with friends and family. I live 1,200 miles away from where I grew up, I work 750 miles from home 7-8 months out of the year and my immediate family is spread across the country (as well as eastern Europe and Russia). Until someone comes up with a better alternative that’s free I’ll continue to use Facebook. With that said, I don’t care to have it plastered all over my mobile devices any more than it already is. Their mobile app, while not the prettiest (and lacking a true tablet UI) is perfectly functional for what I do.

    • Brandon Golway

      Exactly. I continue to use facebook because it’s the only way I have to keep in contact with some poeple, not necessarily because I use it constantly.

    • ^ This.

  • brkshr

    Screw FB! They started humble, but they are turning into an evil corporation. Can’t wait for FB to go the way of myspace.

    • shooter50

      You probably don’t like Samsung or Apple either. Success is such a terrible thing worthy of contempt.

      • S2556

        he is hipster about tech companies.

      • the_real_patrick_bateman

        Your reading comprehension is terrible.

    • They never started humble. Depending on who you believe, Zuckerberg either stole Facebook from his collaborators, or the collaborators came in for a share when it took off. Either way, Facebook’s birth was controversial and there was some evil involved.

      From Wikipedia for Facebook History: “The site was quickly forwarded to several campus group list-servers, but was shut down a few days later by the Harvard administration. Zuckerberg faced expulsion and was charged by the administration with breach of security, violating copyrights, and violating individual privacy.”

      • brkshr

        Great point!

  • Nope, and never have. 28 years old.

  • JetBlue

    Now we need a poll on which Social Networking is used the most

    • Brandon Golway

      I definitely think that would be a very interesting poll. Great idea!

  • r0lct

    So far 33% don’t? Finding it hard to believe it’s truly that high with this demographic.

  • i have the app installed, i almost NEVER post any more, i browse my feed once or twice a day simply to keep current with family/friends. even though i could count my “friends” on google plus on one hand, i use that app about 10X as much as i use facebook. F-book has become a bunch of bitching and moaning about topics i dont need others to know where i stand on (gun control, LGBT ect.) and memes, grumpy cats ect. so annoying. if everyone would just move to G+, i could view that stuff if i really wanted to, but hide it all the other time.

  • Its there so my family can stalk me, but since I don’t really use it, not much stalking can be done. Twitter is where it’s at!

  • Slightly off topic, but last night one of my friends was trying to FB video chat with me and it was having all kinds of problems on his computer. So I said “Try starting a Google+ Hangout and see if that works”.

    It worked. Immediately.

    And he said “oh man, I’m already liking this WAY better than facebook” 🙂 Then he kept commenting on how great G+ looked and how many features it had and how much better it “just worked” than FB. Now all we need is more people using it 🙂

    • And here lies the problem. People don’t like change… even if it is for the better.

  • oaxican509

    I use twitter now, and I find it hilarious how many people use hash tags on Facebook more than in twitter.

    • Medications

      A lot of people have their twitter synced to their FB news feed, so each tweet also posts a status. That explains any hash tags. Hash tagging has also kind of come to have its own meaning and become it’s own expression outside of twitter anyway. So even when soneone hash tags a word or phrase outside of twitter, you know what they mean by it.

      • S2556

        pintrest and instagram get linked a lot as well. #annoying #fuckhashtagsoutsideofcontext

    • bigillz

      Hate to rain on the hate of hashtags (I never use them) but they are valuable on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, etc, because of up and coming companies like Tagboard.com that aggregate all these sources, using hashtags as the search string. You’re essentially key-wording your own content, which -can be- a valuable thing.

    • philnolan3d

      Do hashtags even work on fb? I know they do on G+.

  • I’m 30 (which is the new 20, btw) I got rid of the Facebook a couple years ago. It felt liberating! I definitely don’t miss it, & I love being the only one in the room without it.

  • Yes, and seriously, before this comment section becomes a cesspool of Gawker-style and Buzzfeed-style commentators, the people that are like “I would never subject to the evil that is Facebook die big companies, etc,” please shut up. Like you are worse than the people that brag about not having a TV in their house. You just sound pretentious.

    To the writer, by this poll, you are asking for those assholes to rear out their ugly heads and act like they are better than everyone.

    • Friendo

      Your comment is a little pre-emptively rage-y. It’s Friday, grab a soda pop, or adult soda pop & unwind! 🙂

    • PopeFrancis

      Wow… Take a day off.. Live life 🙂

    • I know I am not better than most people, but one thing I can say at this moment I know I am at least better than you

  • EvanTheGamer

    Where’s the “Yes (I’m just old).” option?

    • Granted

      It is right there by the “I think I just got my first Pube” option that you selected.

  • The results of this poll will be interesting…because it’s basically asking: How old are you?

    I think it will be interesting to see the average age of Droid-Lifer’s (although the NO category screws that up a little)

    BUT, what would be even more interesting, is to see a graph of this graph over time…to see what age groups are quickest to respond to the poll 🙂 Data is just plain fascinating to me 🙂

    • Bryce Mrozinski

      Yeah Maybe should have included ages for the No also.. but the 21-30 yo are winning right now /shocker.. I would like to see who is saying no though also. 24 yo here.

      • ERIC REED

        I’m not buying that there is that many people not using Facebook in this poll. I believe they would not like to admit to not being on Facebook, and decided the cool to say was no.

        • Dino Rodriguez

          I voted no and I’m definitely not using FB and am very proud to have deleted my account. G+ all day! (age 43, male)

          • ERIC REED

            Why are you proud to have deleted your account? There are a lot of things in this world to proud of, being or not being part of a social network seems like it shouldn’t be one of them.

          • philnolan3d

            There are many things to be proud of, big or small. I think it’s good to believe in something no matter what it is. For example, I strongly disagree with apple’s business practices, thus I’m proud to say I don’t use any of their products.

          • ERIC REED

            I’m proud my daughter is on the dean’s list at school.

            I have an iPad and a Mac, doesn’t stir any emotion in me!!

          • philnolan3d

            Well good for you and your daughter. Nobodies forcing you to take pride in all of your opinions .

          • michael arazan

            EFF FaceBook

        • philnolan3d

          What’s so hard to accept? Google+ is the second most popular social network in the world, beating out YouTube and even Twitter.

          • ERIC REED

            That’s strange, I know one person that actually uses G+. I couldn’t even count the number of people I know that use YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Activating an Android phone doesn’t actually mean you use G+, it just means you have a Google sign in and they put it on your phone.

          • Phil Nolan

            Having a Google account , or even a Google+ account doesn’t make you an active user. Being active means posting at least once a month. And G+ doesn’t even have all of the automated posting tools that Facebook has.

          • ERIC REED

            So I’m to believe there are more people using G+ then YouTube and Twitter?

          • philnolan3d

            If you are to believe facts then yes . Not together of course but G+ has more active users than YouTube or Twitter.

          • ERIC REED

            I will choose to believe reality…

          • Phil Nolan

            Good, me too.

        • Jarred Sutherland

          I do not use FB, but I do have an account due to Spotify creating one for me on its own. I hate FB, I find zero use for it.

    • onDroid

      Then you would love my job. I am a Data Analyst so all I do all day is look at customer data and analyse trends. This poll is mostly useless because of the way that the no category is worded. It needs to be broken out by age as well. It could be that every person on this site that answered no is over 41 and the entire no category is taken up by the two upper age groups. You just can’t infer anything from this poll except for the percentage of readers who responded to the poll that use facebook rendering the age breakout completely moot.

  • EvanTheGamer

    The real question should be… “Who doesn’t use Facebook?

    I hate Facebook but I still use it for some reason. It’s almost like crack.

    • mustbepbs

      Shut up, troll.

      😉

      • EvanTheGamer

        Shut up, tool.

        • mustbepbs

          I don’t think so, Tim.

          • EvanTheGamer

            lol I miss that show.

          • mustbepbs

            I know :/ They don’t make shows like that anymore.

    • JasonIvers

      I use it to share pictures with my family (who don’t use anything else), and to see funny pictures shared by my family. That’s it… oh, one friend, too, but she’s been my friend so long she might as well be family.

    • Good question. The use is so pervasive. But, to answer you’re question: I don’t. See my comment just below.

  • cole hartman

    I still have my account but I never really use it.

  • philnolan3d

    Google+ is where it’s at.

  • jnt

    Got off it for awhile, so did my wife – best thing we ever did. Yet we’re back on now. We’re just extremely exclusive now with regard to who we’re friends with – if we wouldn’t invite them over for dinner, they can’t be our FB friends! 🙂

  • I use FB, but like Daniel, not enough that I’d want a UI based around, let alone a whole ROM…though if they were cheap enough and hardware intensive enough, I’d get one, unlock it and stick AOSP or CM or AOKP on it…

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    No, deactivated my account months ago. I don’t use G+ everyday but when I do socially network I go with the +

  • coolsilver

    Sadly yes. But the more my family uses it the less I even want to know it exists.

  • Bionicman

    there should be a “Yes, very sporadically option”…because that would be me

  • xRand0mx

    Facebook for me has turned into an extension of my contacts. I use it primarily to keep in contact with people, usually through the messenger. Other than that, I’ve deleted most of my information and haven’t posted anything in years.

  • I have to still use facebook. Its where the rest of my family is. I post pictures of my daughter for them to see.

    • philnolan3d

      You have to wonder how many people use it only because they have to.

      • I use it because I like to interact with people I KNOW. I don’t know anybody on Google+ so I don’t use it. I already have enough interactions with strangers on blogs and forums, so I just don’t have the time for another social media app in my life.

        • Brandon Golway

          It is kind of creepy at first to see all these random people adding you but you get used to it eventually and most of them don’t talk to you. A few will actually have mutual shared interests. I talk to a few people on G+ that I don’t know in real life.

          • philnolan3d

            It’s no more creepy than Twitter followers. You post things to Public that you’d like the public to read. If it’s not public information then you only share it to your Friends circle, or Family, or whatever. Just like you do in real life.

          • Brandon Golway

            It’s just and odd feeling since I was never a twitter user, just facebook.

          • Phil Nolan

            What I could never get used to is people writing on my page on fb. Why would I want people to write on my page? That’s for my stuff!

          • Brandon Golway

            How else are they going to initiate communication with you or share something with you?

        • Sean Lally

          You’re doing it wrong.

      I told my family if they want to see pics of my kids, I will be on g+, and it worked, they (almost)all got a g+ account and now we use it a lot for family stuff.

        Same here

      • JasonIvers

        I should try that.

        What’s the difference? Facebook and Google+. Essentially the same thing. If you’re using one why bother with the other.

        • Brandon Golway

          They’re more different than you think, I’m going to assume that you don’t use G+ that often, do you?

  • Daniel

    Yes, but not nearly enough that I’d want any more FB-crap on my phone, let-alone an entire ROM of fb-crap 😉

    • The beauty of Android is choice. You might now like it, but someone else might.

      • As much as I hate the idea of Facebook more integrated into my phone, you sir, are correct.

        Choice?
        Where are the new high end 4.3″-4.5″ screened non-phablets?
        Where is the USB Charge Only mode?
        Where is the USB Mass Storage mode?
        Where are the high end sliders (hey there’re still people who want them)?

          It’s about choice for Google and OEMs not for users.

        • You had the choice to be that one guy who manages to complain about something.

            I see more than one on here.

          I enough people wanted these kind of phones, Samsung (at least) will made them.

          I can guarantee you that 99% of people will take a bigger screen for the same price (4.5″-5″ is not a phablet and who cares anyway?) so that’s why there are no small screens high-end devices.

          Also, most people who tries big screen phones actually like them, even if they don’t fit as well in their pockets #firstworldproblem

            I always find these “first world problems” annoying in these consumer technology blogs.

            Plus smaller screens get better battery efficiency. Look at the HTC One getting one hour more battery life than the S4 in a browser test where the CPU, GPU and data mostly sit idle.

          • Jeff T

            That’s with a smaller battery in the HTC too. If only it had a SD slot.

          • hfh

            Yup, these “first world problems” comments are annoying.

          • Mathieu

            Devices with bigger screens usually have bigger battery.

            The Galaxy S4 has a Snapdragon S600 @ 1.9 GHz with a 2600 mAh [replaceable] battery and an AMOLED display.
            The HTC One has a Snapdragon S600 @ 1.7 GHz with a 2300 mAh [not replaceable] battery with an LCD display.
            It’s hard to guess what would be responsible for a supposed better battery life of the HTC One, especially since the Galaxy S4 hasn’t been released and thus is not running final software.

            But seriously, everyone likes big screen phones once they give them a chance and I would bet everything that Apple is releasing one in 2013-2014.

            First world problems? You do know what kind of site this, right?

      • Granted

        Choice would mean you would be ab l e to uninstall bloat garbage like this, without resorting to have to root your device. Choice indeed…

        • Or you don’t buy it…
