Here at ChiIL Live Shows/ChiIL Mama we're a Galaxy Family. We bought the first Galaxy S right when it came out and currently have the S4 & S3. They impressed me last weekend at BlogHer at McCormick Place with free engraved cases, new batteries, and sweet tech swag like speakers, chargers and even big giveaways. This weekend they're rockin' Lollapalooza!
