Guys please don't buy it because it has heating problem ina all sets. After 3 days of purchasing i went to service center to solve this problem but 8 am surprised that they told me the samsung s4 has 50 degree heating is default while using wifi calls camera usage etc. Even when i told them to have physical check they misbehave with me.. i was very angry with their bad service. I will suggest you please don't buy this. Thanks 09781927030

I suggest everyone should read this about the galaxy S4 before even wanting to buy it:

I have been 1 and a half years with this phone, and in August it repeatedly showed a message "No SIM card installed, the phone will restart", and then the phone went off and rebooted, about 3-5 times a day, and until now I haven't found the solution. I went to an authorized samsung repairing center and they "repaired" it, but in only 3 weeks it started rebooting again. It's been about 3 month that my phone doesn't receive nor make phone calls and i have no 4G/LTE/3G, it's pretty much an iPod, so I seriously advice you to consider other phones rather than this one. And I have to say that I have treated it with a lot of care and have never dropped it on water, so please consider this before buying this phone, and suggest you look at this issue on the internet because many galaxy S4 have this major issue.

Hi Shubham I wonder whether you can throw any light on a sudden problem I appear to have with my Sg19505. It is now 12 months old and has been faultless till now. however jsut recently it seems to start feeling warm/hot in my pocket and the battery life has decreased rather dramatically. I always have wifi and bluetooth enabled and used to be able to get up to 2 days of battery life. Now under the exact same operating conditions I find that I am getting less than 1 full day. Does the battery have a certain use by date or could there be something else going on? Also I have just returned from 2 weeks holiday in a very hot climate and oerhaps the heat may have affected the phone?
I would value your input. By the way I did let the phone discharge fully and then re-charge it, I also removed the battery and re installed it but no improvement.

Guys just have a look at specs of I9506, Just a piece of awesomeness with Snapdragon 800 processor :D

Guess I9506 Black leather edition must be the one of the best phone right now

Yes, the phonebook takes a while to launch if you've cleared it out of RAM.

Wait for the lollipop upgrade. It'll be much faster.

That's a problem with touchwiz, not your phone.

Wait for lollipop in touchwiz. Then it'll be definitely better than stock android.

But for now, stock is better than older touchwiz used in s4.

But still I'm a fan of Samsung bcoz of its features & prompt & unmatched repair services in India.
