I “bought”, or received a free Samsung Galaxy S4 with contract, from Best Buy on Black Friday. I fell in love with the phone instantly. It was quite the upgrade from my original DROID RAZR.
Anyway, i wanted to share some must have tweaks are below:

One complaint I have with the phone is when you have headphones plugged in, the software assumes you are using a headset and doesn’t transmit audio through a bluetooth, ie a car. SoundAbout, even the free version fixes this issue and makes it a must have app for anyone who uses a audio cable and bluetooth in their car.
– Reordering the App List – http://www.fixedbyvonnie.com/2013/08/how-to-organize-the-apps-on-your-galaxy-s4/
By default Samsung sorts the App Drawer by install date, making Apps really hard to find. Simply hit Options… View Type… Alpha.
– Disable S Voice and use Google Search instead on double home key tap.
Turn off S Voice or go to S Voice settings and disable home key shortcut then install Home2 Shortcut.
