I really don't believe you saying that amoled had such a rare case of oled burn, Dafuq bro, are you blind? i had even experience to myself having a oled burn issue, that was crap thing! making my display yellowish! my sister even experience a black color spill on the screen, it can be seen when your in a dark places, it's ugly! Ahhmmm there are even lots of problems and issues reported to S4 regarding on hardware lots lots lots of it! but on g2 only few but majority are haters who are trying to talk sh*t like (not expandable memory it suck, plastic body, over saturated display) a bunch of like that Dafuq! and even s4's gimmicky features such as scrolling thing that doesn't even work properly e__e. people always say that yeah my s4 is just super cool coz it has this feature not like yours. yeah lots of features and lots of build flaws! Love your S4 and stop commenting crap shit to G2 coz it really gets into my nerves when someone is always commenting saying crap things to G2 when im using it! i read almost your comment and your always against G2, stop that crap mind your own phone. and stop replying to people telling g2 sucks!

Well the S4 is a good phone, camera wise better than G2, having owned one. My niggle there great hand warmers as they overheat big time. well mine did. and my friends 4 different S4's did. My G2 is awesome, and after 30 mins on Real Racing 3, is cool as a cucumber. Well Done LG.

All phone models have battery issues. ALL
At least Samsung's is removable so it's an easy swap; and you do not have to void your warranty, pry open, or send it away.
Burn-in is one of the most over exaggerated bs lies of Amoled. It's a rare case. Not much more often than dead pixels or dead LCD.
Galaxy users get addition magical air storage too...But you still have exchangeable physical memory that you know is there for sure and can be swapped around. Weather no service, no signal, anything.
Faster chip alone does not make an entire complete thing. The S600 is still very strong and S4 offers more in exchange and has S800 versions now too. Which in theory could give better battery life.
LOL! Belive your fanboysim. I never said it was extremely saturated, but it's not as close to perfect as they want you to believe. Mostly in the greens. Also the color profiles are actually slightly better calibrated on the S4. So all it offers is fairly accurate colors.
S4 you know off hand and up front it's not perfectly natural. But you get color profiles. In movie Mode the colors are very close to accurate while still retaining true blacks and massive contrast. So it is overall way more natural than just slightly better colors alone can ever fully be. With fake blacks and shiny contrast and still slightly saturated colors LCD by standard is also very far from this claimed "natural". In movie mode AMoled also scores one of the best white balances well surpassing almost every LCD. When in autobrightness the screen gets up to 34% brighter than normal and outshines the G2's sunlight legibility.

And what sensor does work well in low light? Little to none. Cameras also lose performance that way even with flash? Did you actually think that made sense????
And yes the scrolling, "air guesters" like answering calls, texts, viewing content like pictures, folders, text, and many things and screen shots all without touching the device. Group play, and many things. Out of blind fanboy jealousy you can call them all useless and gimmicks, but at least Samsung offers them when others do not. People in real life use them. To act like you it could be said all phone features are useless. At least Saung gives it's users choice. Which most things are optional and aim to cater to as many different people as possible. Also advanced multi tasking making Galaxy serious complete dominator of mobile multi task.
As well as slimmer more ergonomic design. And LG's obvious inspiration of Samsung design and touchwiz. Especially in G models.
And Note 3 does all these way better than S4.

I was not bad talking the G2 in any way. Just pointing out the obvious fact that as a whole package the S4 still has some strong advantages. Somewhat weaker chip or not.

It hwoever noway can more than double the battery life of the S4. You have no proven your fanboyism and complete and utter lack of any true knowledge here.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-10-20 10:04 from 4QSR - click to readDue to amoled display, users are now heading to experience amoled burn. and a removable battery issue that suddenly makes the device to turn off and bloat battery. Thanks to LG G2s Box Cloud users now have 50GB additional storage for their phones. useful function on s4? such as smart scroll? that doesn't function well specially on low lighted areas?. S4 not blown away? try to look whats under the hood on LG G2s hardware. LG G2s over saturated display? dude you got it all wrong, maybe you mean my S4's over saturated display, coz G2s display is one of the most nearest to real life colors in terms of display result.

I Have used LGs, Samsungs, Apples and HTCs.

I got the SG4 a couple of months ago and just got the G2 and i love it. The G2 beats the Sg4 hands down.

And still user replaceable battery helps a lot in that area.

Due to Amoled display, thinner, removable battery, SD Slot, real buttons with useful function, and better software with more features the G2 could not really over take the S4.

Having S800 and .2inch bigger screen"taken up by buttons have the time negating the difference most of the time" did not blow S4 away.
Not to say the G2 is not a great device.
Also not to mention G2 screen is over saturated too.

Burn in is not a common wide spread issue. And LG's perfect color saturation is a lie because they saturate their screens.

And cheating? That's where you show you true jealousy. Next?

> In reply to kachil @ 2013-10-13 21:05 from t1$I - click to readeveryone knows AMOLED have burnout issues ..
and have less subpixels .. The colour what you are telling is just for 6 months .. you can now check with old note2/s3/s2/s4 . Samsung will just fake ppl
display/benchmarks/ anything ..
LG will never mass produce OLED displays unless the burnout issues and other issues are solved.. and FYI I OLED, LG have RGBW pixel arrangement for superior whites compared to samsung RGB ..

Another cheating by samsung Note-3 here in INDIA ..
In showrooms, samsung giving demo piece with
Snapdragon-800 but selling Exynos-5 Octacore which is have heating issues. So cheating customers im many ways .. still fans are blind .. but ppl who want to be careful , check the model name before you give your hard earned money..

Even micromax using ips .colour saturation of iphone 5 and 4s is different ,why? Because people like good colour reproduction. S4 super amoled producing a good colour reproduction with high contrast. Same time it has different colour setting .
