If you go through the comparison between s4 & g2 by gs marena you'll see that both phones are pretty much similar & it's a tie between the 2 in terms of camera but s4 has an edge over g2 in terms of expandable storage, removable battery & price while g2 has bigger screen, better gpu & bigger battery, so more or less both have their advantages &disadvantages.
I'm yet to decide which one to pick.

Regarding snapdragon 800, if the s4 octa is available in your country, then it has a better or almost same cpu in raw performance. My father's g2 gets 2200 in geekbench 3 and my s4 crosses 2450. So basically i9500 is more powerful in CPU. The only difference is in gaming but s4 is no slouch. It can play every game i tested smoothly. Even gta san andreas and asphalt 8 run smoothly. But yes, the g2 has future proofing as it has 30-40 % better GPU.

The biggest difference is the screen. The difference is huge. In dark if you watch movies, the s4 has perfect blacks as it's an amoled. Whereas g2 has an LCD that has greyish blacks.

Have a nice time choosing

> In reply to ddas @ 2014-04-23 11:20 from fCxi - click to readThe s5 octa available in india uses a sony exmor RS sensor which has a 4:3 13 megapixel sensor. The sensor size is 1/3.06 inches and aperture is f/2.2 . It has a 5 element lens.


The elements in a les means how many glass lenses are used one behind the other.

there are only 2 smartphones with a six element lens, the galaxy s5 and i think others are lumias.

The more element lens increases sharpness, decreases aberrations and distortions. Most phones have a 5 element lens.

Plus, the majority depends on the processing algorithm of company and nokia and samsung are kings. I have an s4. The average image comes at 4-5 MB eben reaching upto 10 MB in good light. The sony's algorithm is the worst and over compresses the images. Even the 20.7 Mp xperia z1 takes 1-2 MB photos with very less detail.

Have a nice day

Instead, they are underclocked at 1 or 1.2 GHz for saving battery. You can enable power saving mode without underclocking Cpu also but that won't save that much battery.

I ran geekbench 3 with power saving on. It gives a score of 1800- 1900 whereas without power saving it even reaches 2400-2500. So that's it about rhe power saving mode. If the cortex a15 didn't come, the score would be below 1000 as 1.2 Gh cortex a7 are very weak.

Have a nice day. Ask anything intellectual. I'll be more than happy to answer.

Would like to ask one question though : If I use power saving mode always, do the a15 cores never come into play? What does power saving mode basically do?
