    Keep looking - you'll probably find something better

    This isn't a bad book but there is a lot of time spent reviewing basic smartphone features which makes you feel like a lot of this was cut and pasted from some other For Dummies book. There is some useful information in here pertaining specifically to the Galaxy S4 but there is some that is missing and I just got the phone and haven't had very much time to play with it.

    Specifically I noticed that when it talks about getting your music onto the phone it never mentions using the usb that comes with the phone to do so. It recommends that if you're doing a lot of music the best way to do it is to use a micro card reader which is so much more cumbersome than the usb method.

    I wonder what else is missing...
