SAMSUNG makers of famous s4 -close one main uk london outlet shop due to "poor sales" - sad ! seems like POOR corporate bosses -stuck in air con high offices -out of touch with market place ..really sad if market place is mainly dominated by apple as in 2010 ..samsung then with S2 IN 2011 became GAMES CHANGER . NOV 2011 we managed to take some memorable photoes with our S2 - NEWYORK MARATHON .
ANDROID FRONT RUNNERS SAMSUNG must keep running the market place marathons ..please -for consumers ..

But first I have to wait for a good phone. I'll wait for s6 or htc m9. Whichever is better.

Sound quality is ok.
Camera is nice,but there is no option to shoot video in night mode,so videos become grainy in low light.
Battery Life and performance is ok,i didn't face any overheating during charging or normal using this phone as many people say,i didn't test heavy use though.

S4 costs 400$ here. I doubt that redmi note costs 100$. It costs close to 180$.

And with a 720p LCD screen and cr*ppy processor. Not to mention the camera and features like micro SD SLOT, 1080p video recording, slow motion recording etc and doesn't even have the sensor's like gyroscope, thermometer, hygrometer, BAROMETER, IR blaster etc.

Please don't compare a low end Chinese phone with s4. S4 is better compared to xiaomi mi3 or mi4.

Also there is brand recognition and costumer service. What if you get a defective piece. Xiaomi doesn't replace units as they even lack stock for sales. Then you'll regret.

SAmsung galaxy s4 is an excellent smartphone. i got mine last 2 weeks. every thing about this phone is good especially the screen display and the processor speed.. what i also like is the fast battery charger. it charges the phone from 0% to 100% within 1 and half hour. the battery life is also good.

1. A 1080p screen

2. A 13 MP exmor RS camera.

3. AMOLED.

4. A cortex a15 based chip, not the snapdragon 400 non$ense.

5. A compact body to use one handed.

6. MicroSD card slot.

Redmi doesn't even come close.

Sound: The phone has wolfson DAC. Purchase a high end headphone like ATH M50X and you'll hear soul shaking clarity of sound. However, with a cheap earphone set, you can't hear much of quality as the audio drivers and the frequency response of the earphone will be crappy.

Camera: It's best camera in class for price. Use the Rich Tone( HDR ) and night mode while necessary. Also turn the anti shake on. After that, you'll get great photos.

Battery life: It's okayish. I get 5 hour of on-screen time. The battery is good but not great.

Performance: It's really good. Processor is pretty powerful and s4 is getting android 5.0 update soon. That'll result in very smooth performance.

Have a nice day.

It's a great device. The camera and display is brilliant. Everything is OK but when u do heavy gaming then the phone will heat up. But in normal case it's performance is good
