Hi All,

I just got a Galaxy S4, and while I know how to use it generally, could someone give me some tips and cool things I can do with it like the gesture stuff? Thanks!

Install some sort of virus/malware protection. I use Lookout.
Use Adblock Plus which is available for Android.

Absolutely do not install virus/malware junk. All it does it make your phone work harder then it should to do something it doesn't need to do.
To protect your phone from Malware, you use common sense.
  • Don't download a brand new app on the Market
  • Don't download apps from anywhere but Google Play or Amazon until you are more familiar with what you are doing

An Android phone getting infected with Malware, believe it or not, is still a pretty rare thing...

You can go to your local book store and purchase a book or magazine with helpful hints and tips for a reasonable price.

With all the pre-installed bloatware, does it actually give you 16GB of usable storage?

The amount of storage for user files is actually around 8-9GB. The OS takes up a lot of room.
