> In reply to ivans424 @ 2013-10-30 14:36 from vb$X - click to readNo mate it's not about SD card. You will only notice slowness if the SD card is Class 4 or less, and even that when you are watching a video from it, possibly 720p etc, otherwise you won't notice it. You can just remove the SD card just to see for yourself. Anyway, with 4.3 the gallery is at least 50% faster, as well as the camera opening. Great, just wish the H/W acceleration wasn't broken on other apps, I am confident it will be fixed, otherwise 4.3 is a great update.
NO, you will NOT void warranty by using Odin. Samsung Service Center uses Odin, it's their own flashing application.

Odin is Samsung's own software!

So this is NOT a true Octa core device, I am sure you know that already.

Open the messaging app, press the left soft button, and select Settings. Scroll down to 'Notification settings' and tick 'Vibrate' ON.

All the people wanting to download the 4.3 software,be very careful,it took me over 5 hours to get it download onto my S4,an then when getting it finally installed onto my phone,it just stopped,so had to do a emergency firewall upgrade,an that to another 3 hours to finally get 4.3 fully installed on to my phone,so be very patient installing 4.3 or you might end up with your phone damaged

there is something I don't understand about Samsung , you are making the best smartphone in the world according to the specs but you can not wrap it up in a stronger body , why don't you make its body aluminium like the HTC one , or the strong type of plastic that Nokia provides , or something like the Kevlar back of the Motorola RAZR.
But Noooo , Samsung choose the worst type of plastic and put it on a 500$ worth type of phone
I mean how much would it cost you to make a stronger more premium phone , a dollar more for each one , the new Samsung-made phones are not made to live , they are made so that you become as an iPhone user , once you bought their flagship , you have to buy the new one every year , and although most of the people I know like Samsung and would prefer its products over many other companies , I don't and never will .
Yes , I am that type of person qho won't buy a phone , no matter how good its specs are , because of its weak body design and as far as Samsung won't consider their materials , I and many others won't switch to Samsung and would prefer Nokia with its Windows Phone or another Android as HTC
