You can install Android 4.3 on your Galaxy S4 right now - read the full textSamsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition was unleashed just two days ago, but some lucky guy have somehow managed to get his hands on an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean-running test unit of the device. The Android build however doesn't have all of the features that will premiere within the official Android 4.3...

Probably just a bug, doesn't seem to have a huge effect on the phone but it does use a lot of power for normal tasks.

I've installed the rom and it's perfect. Every function and feature from the nexus is present and working and the performance is great. That said, there are some battery issues (standby is great, playing music is not som great). Besides the obvious wakelock apps, the phone seems to be stressing the CPU when in use, especially when playing music over longer periods of time. Gets real hot as well. I still prefer this rom over touchwiz any day though

The only reason they say it's better is because it's a little brighter and people like the design better in most cases.
That's about the only advantage One has.
Nice try. Please tell me what's better about the One?
And read up about everything and real reviews first before coming back with some random fanboy or this reviewer whol loves htc hates samsung said this

S4? The Best Phone? ... I think you mean the HTC One... Every single Review from "Everywhere"... I mean "Every Single Place in the World" the HTC One is the number 1 Smartphone Currently in 2013... Sorry Samsung and Apple Fans... the Reviewers, Masses and the People have spoken...

BB10 and it still lags. Windows 8 and it still lags....Mac whatever version and it still lags..
Oh yeah because all technology is very flawed...
Just some brainless trolls are truly naive enough to foolishly believe WP/IOS or whatever is immune to reality.

In Vietnam, we have no problem when going for warranty with a rooted Samsung device, free of charge.
Good services.

This is not the final release of the software and might not even be legit [4.3].
If you brick your device then you will blame Samsung or yourself [and you should blame yourself!]. HTC is playing it safe now, and i like this, no damage for our devices, only stable releases !
