One of the things I love about writing for ACMB is the opportunity I get to try new things. This past week I got to test the Samsung Galaxy S4 from Aio Wireless. This was perfect timing for me because I’ve been wondering if it’s time to upgrade my Samsung S2, and I wanted to compare the network I currently use.
My husband and I currently use a no contract unlimited text and data plan, so using the Aio network made for an easy apples to apples comparison. Aio has three service plans that range from $40/month to $70/month, with all fees and taxes included. All plans also include unlimited talk and messaging and unlimited data.
As far as the phone goes, the S4 is slimmer and has a larger screen than the S2. I hate the learning curve that goes along with a new phone, but I don’t think it would take too long to get it all figured out. The network was a different story however. I always complain that my house is in a cell coverage dead zone. I’ve wanted to know if I’d be better off with a bigger network, but I haven’t been ready to make the investment without knowing for sure if it would work. The phone worked great at my house, but what was amazing was the comparison in download speeds. We checked the speeds at three different locations with three different phones. In every instance, the Aio network blew my current network out of the water. I didn’t know that phones were supposed to go that fast! It’s going to be hard for me to go back to my regular speed phone! It may be time for me to make the switch. The only downside for me is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a little out of my price range, but the good news is that Aio offers value pricing for great devices (smartphones, feature phones and tablets).
