I've used the s4 side by side with my 6030 and actually prefer the Samsung. Especially being relatively new to soaring I find that my odds are drastically improved when coring thermals. The secret sauce is the bread crumb trail turning red in lift and blue in sink. Essentially it allow me to move my circle until I have lift all the way around

I have to admit that my phone is not as sensitive as a purpose built vario. However I'm not convinced that this is such a bad thing. Regardless of which device I use, I rely more on the initial acceleration to determine if I should turn.
