I do apologize for the incorrect information on the 640p which is even more pathetic.

Oh well :D my point is android>ios, that's all and Samsung triumphs over Apple as well.

> In reply to BMSUXZZZZ @ 2013-10-29 18:41 from MVg6 - click to readThe iphone processor is not a joke, it's a new architecture which gives it a head start of the others. it can match quad core high clocked snapdragon 800 with ease and even get edge on s4.

to compare cpu power, my s4 gets 2471 on geekbench 3 while iphone 5s gets around 2600. and the gpu on ipohne is around 25% faster so iphone is much better in processing power. But for a phone released 6 months later this was expected.

lets see how it fares against s5 which releases 6 months after this.

Also the screen is not 720p, its 640p on iphone.

Have a good day. Please check data be4 commenting

What's worse is the great IOS :D Half the applications there are charged including whatsapp, what a joke.
Not to mention the great 720 screen, cant even watch full HD on it :D What a joke of a phone

Aesthetically speaking the samsung s4 lacks any beauty.In addition to this the operating system used isnt as efficent as the iphone.The main attractions of this phone are useless features which are not used in everyday life.Overcomplicating the phone reduces all its novelty

It would not lose any information, only the Google play would be reset.

Been using this phone for 4 months now, here's a quick review.

I find the battery life to be excellent when using applications(heavy apps as well)/gaming(fifa14, tapped out etc)/camera+video/music/talk time/standby, its only drawback is when you start heavy browsing it drains really quickly, no idea why but its something I can live with. A fully charged phone lasts me an entire day (9-9) which I find quite good for a heavy user like me.

I don't understand why people complain so much about the design, I feel its sleek, and for that beautiful 5inch screen size the design fits wonderfully. I used both the white and black colour, I like the white one slightly better cause its more striking and the glossy plastic looks good IMO. Also Spigen has come up with some fantastic cases (the best one being the one with the S view and the Spigen hard case) which basically render any people who complain about its design, useless.

Performance wise, its a joy to play with and use. All applications run smooth, and the multi task option is awesome, u can listen to youtube videos and browse at the same time, which makes me very happy.

My laptop usage has dropped considerably, and the credit for that goes to this monster of a phone that basically does almost everything my laptop does at an incredible pace and it fits in my pocket.

If you are looking to buy a new phone honestly look no further than this beautiful beast. You can watch movies in HD and its colors are delightful. Its also got an awesome camera with some nifty features to boast, and the video recording is awesome. Shame that it lacks IOS which would've made it just perfect. Hopefully s5 will get that.

CONS
-battery life while browsing
-lack of IOS
-Slightly worried about the region lock (although I've been told it shouldn't be a problem)

Still waiting on the upgrade, planning to get the S gear to complement it.

Now the device is really working absolutely fine. All Apps need to be installed in device not in SD card if the SD card is not upto the mark i.e.class 10. Contacts lag gone. System is blazing fast. Only mobile network comes little late. But fantastic user experience.
