> In reply to cherl @ 2013-09-30 21:09 from bCcB - click to readI have just recently bought it a few days ago and it's packed with features, the screen size is awesome, however if you have been an iphone user for a while then you might have some troubles getting your head around it, the I phone will win with it's simplicity, the Galaxy will win with its features and screen size and Camera. I don't know ,much about the HTC though rather than it still runs android of course so it would be lots of features also but I think u can't expand the memory in that one. good luck.

DO NOT BUY the S4 , phone is great , awesome quality m perfect system but it has battery problem , i have change 4 different batteries already since i bought it and there is no way will stay long for more than 6 hour and i even don't use my phone and play with it , i dont listen to music , no games and all options are off , so whats the point of having S4 or 1990's Nokia
i read all reviews before i go buy it and %70 had the same problem but i still made that mystake ,
DO NOT GO FOR IT or u will be regret unless if Samsung come up with some solution

You might know a lot technically, but you are young and inexperienced in life.

Your friend 'Newbie' with the encoded location 'QMnA' is far from being a new user, and he is making fun of you. He has also posted as 'yeah baby!' on 27/09, as -_- on 23/09, ^_^ on 17/09 & 18/09, and 'will' on 17/09.

I'm a lot older than you and saw through his subterfuge straight away. You mean well, but keep your wits about you.

also some ideal practices while updating.

try to install through kies. It downloads the whole new firmware I.e 1.6gb but it's like a complete new thing.

backup your data in kies or anywhere you like and factory reset before and after firmware update.

follow these steps and voila. Your phone will work like charm.

Have a nice day

And you should update your phone to the latest firmware. btw can you tell me which version are you using i9500 or i9505. As update fixes a he'll lot of problems.

have a nice day. Please be patient and explore the phone. You will enjoy it. You can ask me questions anytime. I won't be annoyed. I will reply in at most 12 hrs.

> In reply to sam58 @ 2013-09-30 15:13 from vQ%M - click to readI don't use quadrant. It is really a low standard app and never gets updated to get in flow with new high res screens and beefy processors. I think that should be the problem with quadrant itself but I don't know exactly. I used quadrant once and it worked fine though. But don't worry.

nowadays antutu is also going the wrong way. The new 4.0 update made it very bad to use.plus to your amazement, it shows galaxy s4 to have lower score than htc one which is absolutely not acceptible. in antutu's last version, s4 was way ahead of one in scores but they screwed up big this time.

The most standard app is geekbench 2 and 3. Also 3dmark is decent one. Basically a good benchmarking app is the one that tests a component fully for a longer duration.

You are really like me. testing out the phone fully. That's a good thing.

Have a good day.
