Great phone, very user friendly. Prefer it to the apple, as it is thinner and has a larger screen.

Also will the update affect the camera performance,battery & speed?
Thanks in advance.
Avez kasmani, 17 May 2014i m super confure between xperia z and galaxy s4... xperia z is of 27k and s4 is of 29k...You want the comparison in detail. The xperia z doesn't stand a chance against s4. Xperia z was a failure by Sony. They really messed up.
Looks and Ergonomics: xperia z looks beautiful and better than s4 to be frank. It is even wafted and dust resistant. But s4 is much smaller and easier to handle. It also has capacitive buttons below the screen, which make full screen to be used. On screen buttons on xperia z make only about 4.7 inch of screen usable. This round I'll call a tie. Both have their advantages.
Screen: xperia z had the worst screen I've seen in my life. It's lifeless with pathetic viewing angles. Really the screen is a bummer on xperia z. The s4 has a class leading screen and xperia z's screen really pales in comparison.
Battery life: s4 clearly wins with almost double on screen time.
Chipset or performance: s4 has cortex a15 cpu which is almost 1.5 times more powerful.
Camera: both have identical sensors. But s4 has a better camera app and Also much more better image processing. So s4 has clearly better photos. Xperia z compresses photos too much.
UI: this is a personal preference. Both ui are very good. Touchwiz is more functional whereas Sony's ui looks better.
Sound: s4 has 78dB sound against 62dB sound of xperia z. That's much louder. Plus s4 has a better sound from earphones.
So now you see, xperia z really pales in front of s4.
There is nothing to be confused. Xperia z is a very bad phone in front of s4. Choose s4.
Have a nice day

ddas, 17 May 2014Hi Shubham, then d trick of animation+force gpu will result 2 same o/p which power savin mode ... moreNo they will make the phone fast. They'll not save any battery. The battery saving features were the points 1-3. They save battery more than the power saving mode. And point 4 and 5 make phone blazing fast.
Just tell your observation after applying these modes. You can keep the power saving mode on but only click the disable haptic feedback in it as the other 2 features of power saving mode have a negative impact on performance.
Tell your observations.

Today is the 2nd day on single charge still the battery is 40% used it to download some games & applications,calls,Facebook,what's app,haven't seen such a strong battery life in any of my previous phones now I don't carry my charger when I go out. All in all it's a great buy.

It shows H or H+ which means 3g but sometimes it's actually 2g. To switch between 2g and 3g you go to settings > More networks> mobile networks>Network mode and select the mode.
GSM is 2g and WCDMA is 3g.

The force gpu rendering takes the combination of cpu amd gpu to render the animations and hence makes them smoother.
None of the effects will make your experience bad and they're not risky. Turn them off if you don't like them.
Purchase an s-view cover to eliminate the left heating.
Have a nice day.

Whenever you want to download something, turn them on and off again when you're done.

thanks for your advise
ForEver-SamsunG, 16 May 2014Which one is good deep black with faux leather or black mist ???The faux leather is much better than Black mist.
I have not enjoyed the galaxy s4. The phone heats up and the assistive light comes on even when screen is locked, draining battery power.. Have had to change battery once already.
