It just shares some load of CPU with the GPU and keeps the load off CPU. It saves battery as GPU are quite power efficient and also more powerful in rendering graphics and animations.
Just try it. It won't harm your phone. try it for 1-2 days and switch back to normal. You'll feel that animations won't be that smooth now. It's your choice.
Just try it on s3. If it works, do tell me.
USING THESE SETTINGS WON'T HARM YOUR DEVICE. SO DO TRY THEM AND USE IF YOU FEEL BETTER WITH THEM.
Have a nice day

But is necessary to Check d "Force GPU rendering" ..r u sure? Bcoz in d video its not asked to do (video was uploaded by some Android authority grp)
Also this trick will work on my S3 too?
Has anyone noticed that after the Kit Kat update that the video stabilization works much better and the difference is much noticeable and better than before (Jelly Bean)?
Although camera start-up time has decreased on my S4, taking somewhat over 5 seconds to switch on at times...
I haven't faced any such over heating issues in my S4 yet,i use a silicon case so i don't feel the heat,watched sports for about 2 hours yesterday & it was pretty fine.
Was the best phone of 2013. Still one of the best phones out there. My phone never heats up so who ever got a faulty phone just get it repaired.

I was worried about it but now it i... moreI already mentioned in my comment about the heating. It will get better over time. And the best remedy of all the problems is an s-view cover. Just try it, S-view cover is great.
if you use the s-view cover, you'll feel a lot lower heat as it is thicker. Additionally, it protects the camera which is protruding now. The heating will be gone when the summer goes. Don't worry about it.
Regarding charging, i'm not an ideal person to enlighten you but i usually charge when battery is below 5% and take it to 100%. That may not be iseal but it hasn't given me any problems.
Oh and please purchase a class 10 UHS-I sd card. They are also called as PRO or ULTRA sd-cards. They have premium card speeds and ideal for capturing high quality photos and full HD videos.
Have a nice day

I was worried about it but now it is much better than before.
So your suggestions about the battery life really made me feel better. At least now I can say thanks :)
One more question buddy,
I can see a little heating right down the camera or I can say just at the flash and the compartment of micro sd and sim card ,I hope its normal and will be fixed in weeks.
It's much in the sd card and it is a SanDisk 16 go micro sd card.
And one more thing that what is better?
1 . charge after total battery drained
2. Charging after the
