mano, 22 Apr 2014In galaxy s4 which android version is best 4.2.2 r 4.3?my galaxy s4 gt i9500 / maj android 4.3 / 2 months ago
[deleted post]I don't think so. Those who i find are trolls i don't reply to. The latest one had read my comparison and was shocked as he expected i9505 to have better performance. And you can see, most of times i just copy my old comment and paste. It takes about 5 seconds. So i don't really bother. All except the recent answer are just plainly copied and pasted. so no worries.
Thanks for caring though.
Have a nice day
arji, 22 Apr 2014But isnt GT-i9505 better than GT-i9500 with higher processor? Im going for the best perfomance... moreBoth phones have radically different processors. The exynos 5 octa is used in i9500. It's also called exynos 5410 or simply 5410. It has 4 1.2 GHz cortex a7 cores and 4 1.6 GHz cortex a15 cores making a total of 8 cores hence making it's name octa. The i9505 has 4 1.9 GHz krait 300 cores and hence it's the quad core version.
Now to these type of cores, cortex a15 are monsters in raw performance. But they are also most inefficient. Krait come in the middle with power and efficiency. The cortex a7 are incredibly weak but incredibly power efficient.
In exynos 5410, the 4 cortex a7 are used for normal tasks like music playback or calling to save battery and when you fire a game or do browsing, the cortex a15 come up. The 4 cortex a15 are around 5 times more powerful for comparison. Hence the exynos chip has great power with good enough efficiency or battery life.
The i9505 has qualcomm's asynchronous technology which helps it lower the clock speed to save battery when power is not needed.
Coming to comparison, I prefer geekbench 3 and quadrant as they only compare CPU power decently. The geekbench scores are i9500: 2470 and i9505: 1900.
quadrant: i9500: 17200 , i9505: 12300
So even the quad core 1.6 Ghz destroys 1.9 GHz krait.
The battery life depends on how you use it. If you use games a lot then cortex a15 will be active and i9500 will have less battery life. If you do casual activities, the cortex a7 will give i9500 a much battery life.
All other points i've mentioned in my previous comments. i9505 has slightly better battery life in general. it also has LTE (4G) and better developer support. i9500 has better audio, better camera, slow-mo HD recording and obviously better processor.
Choice is yours
Have a nice day

This phone has a great calendar and is great for keeping track of strap
sam, 22 Apr 2014Hi Shubham, just wanna ask you that is lg g2 better than s4,as i'm highly confused between the... moreIt depends how you use your phone. My father has a g2 and he wants to exchange with me. G2 has a better battery life and gpu( graphics processing unit). It's also a unibody if you want that type of thing.
S4 has its own advantages. It had a better screen. Really, amoled beats the lcd by a large margin. Also it comes with sd card slot. A 16 gb lg g2 us useless as it gives only 10 gb of space and it can't suffice. I have a 64 gb sd card on my s4 and all my data is easily transferable and I have a lot of space. Also, touchwiz looks and works much better than optimus ui.
Both devices are quite similar in all other features. Both have great cameras and software packages.
I would suggest you go through the comparison by gsmarena between g2 and s4.
One suggestion. If you buy g2, get 32 gb one. 16 gb only gives 10 gb and that's really very less. The 32 gb will give about 25 gb space and that may work. A 4-5 gb free memory is always needed to make phone fast. If you get storage below 1 gb, phone will lag like hell.
Have a nice day. Ask any more questions if you have.

One of the best mobile phone from Samsung. It's awesome and more user friendly experience then before. I like the features and design. Simply this series is no doubt the perfect.
Please tell me anybody?
Can it have
1. hindi language and dual sim.
2. Pc connectivity.
I want to purchase it
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2014i mean more than one year...what is your issue....??It's not issue. It's just the device stands no chance against s4. xperia z has the worst screen of all 1080p androids due to washed out TFT and poor viewing angles. Also the processor is snapdragon s4 pro which stands no chance against even snapdragon 600 and the exynos 5 octa just blows it by 50-60 % more power. Plus the battery life is bad as people just get 2-3 hrs of on-screen time whereas i get 5-6 hrs on my s4. Lastly the camera software is not on par with s4 one and the image compression makes the images much worse than s4. An average image on s4 is about 4-5 MB in size. Just check on your xperia z. You'll get the idea how less detailed the pics are.
Lastly the support. My s4 was upgraded to kitkat more than a month ago and will be updated further if 4.5 comes up. Xperia z has no hopes of getting 4.4 even in a month. Forget about further updates.
Have a nice day
