Metal body will make scratches easily. I had a Nokia C7 past 2 years which has metal aluminium back cover. I didn't used any protection cover. Many many scratches which looks very ugly. So if you are planning to keep your expensive smartphone on a protection jacket then don't buy metal or aluminium body phone. As every poeple are saying that...plastic don't feel as premium bla bla bla. So if you use cover you still will not feel your premium feelings...

Galaxy S4 is a very nice phone except that once it foll down from your hand it blacks out and the mirror gets broken in general it is very sensitive. Secondly it is a victim to virus.

Good day All

I am upgrading in 2 weeks time an have no idea which phone to get, so I thought why not ask the people on GSMArena. I am stuck between choosing the Samsung S4 and the Samsung S4mini. I like them both but am not sure which one to take.

Thank you

In best selling smartphone, galaxy s4 (19500) is number 1.Iphone 5 is second. S4 deserve it.

> In reply to [deleted post]Ok. Note 3 has openGL 3.0 and openGL es 3.0 so it would run games better than s4. S4 has openGL 2.0 and openGL es 2.0 (which will be updated to openGL es 3.0 in 4.3 update) so that should sort out the problem. Well as for me I never had a single problem running asphalt 7 or dead trigger or fifa 14, even though it heated up I didn't find any lag or frame drops. If you can give me a link to your game, I'll try it and let you know. One thing good about s4 is, it cools down pretty soon.

For me it was the other way round.. From an s4 I went to a note2 in one week.. Actually I went from s4 to xperia z to htc desire 600 to note2.. In one week.. Yes it was really a bad week.. S4 used to hang all the time and would heat up like a toaster and battery would drain in like 4hrs of use.. I was coming from a htc one x n believe me in the one yr I used my one x I never faced any such probs.. It was getting on my nerves..

I would never recommend s4 to anybody.. I couldn't afford the HTC one that's why I went for s4 but in the end, I ended up spending the same amount.. Had I bought the HTC one initially itself I would have been a lot happier..


Though currently my experience with note 2 is not bad.. Doesn't even come close to how bad it was with s4..
