My Samsung S4 has stopped holding charge, I've changed the battery drained to 0% and still won't hold any charge. Anyone has this problem? Phone & battery only approx. 13 months.
akashag, 31 Mar 2014I m planning to buy S4 this week .. i have heard about a problem in S4 about Pixel burn/screen... moredon't worry about pixel burn-in. you won't get it unless you use the phone for 5 years or more.
Besides, 16 GB G2 is useless. you'll get 10.5 GB free and there is no SD card slot. So the memory is very less.
32 GB G2 is worth considering over S4 as it's better. But it's costlier. So i would suggest S4 if you look for value for money.
If 32 GB G2 is in your budget, buy it. Otherwise go for 16 GB s4 and get an SD card acc. to your need.
Have a nice day

Thanks in Advance.
sdj, 31 Mar 2014as my experience the kitkat sucks my s4... *No access to playlist in lock screen *Album art... moreI do like the idea of having extra battery life but I have hundreds of games and I wanted to know if it would be a great idea to update and if it would affect game play and the overall performance of the phone
Erhlich, 31 Mar 2014Hey guys I'd like to know if I should update my s4 to kitkat or just leave it at jelly bean ? as my experience the kitkat sucks my s4...
*No access to playlist in lock screen
*Album art sets to the lock screen while playing the music(if there is a bikini girl in album art ur lock screen will filled with bikini an d it ruins your phone theme)
*some times graphics stuck.
*you cant bluetooth media files in player.
*I experienced lagging the screen transitions first time in my s4 after the kitkat upgrade.(but only once yet)
*music player doesnt remember your personnel settings. that means every time u need to set ur personel settings.
* but i feel it saved my battery.
So for me the best is 4.2.2
Erhlich, 31 Mar 2014Hey guys I'd like to know if I should update my s4 to kitkat or just leave it at jelly bean ? Stay with 4.3 itself. Because 4.4 and above has microSD card access problem. Search in google and see.

i m confused between note 2 and s4. i want to play high end games and need a good battery backup. please help me fast.
shaurya., 31 Mar 2014no yar...I am not a fan of nexus 5...but what I want to.say is tht..I don't want a huge phone.... moreHave you ever seen lg g2. It's almost the same size of s4. Yes it's 5.2 inch but i think its just a millimeter wider and taller than s4. You really can't find a difference. And g2 beats nexus in every way possible as both are made by lg. So it's obvious they'll make their flagship better.
So i think it's between g2 and s4 now. Don't you think?
have a nice day
shubham yadav, 31 Mar 2014I have said my final reply. I just don't understand. Why on earth would a guy with 40k budget ... moreno yar...I am not a fan of nexus 5...but what I want to.say is tht..I don't want a huge phone.....I want a phone which is Pocket friendly..maximum of 5 inches .not more thn tht....if u don't mind plz read the previous comments..I have said about s4 also.not only nexus ..:-)

Yes you are right. The guy wants to hear that nexus 5is better. Let me guess. This guy would have posted this on nexus 5 forum too and there someone told him that nexus 5 is much smoother and better. I never say like that. I go unbiased and state the facts. No device is better than other in every category provided they fall into same price bracket. There will be some advantages of this device and some of other.
For an example, everyone knows that lg g2 is better than s4 in general. But for some people like me, s4 is still better as i can't stand lg UI as well as LCD. After amoled, no other display comes close. Plus i want pedometer for my fitness.
Regarding wasting time, today i am highly sick and am n my bed . So i have no other option other than watching tv or surfing online doing time-pass.
Have a nice day. Thanks for your concern and valuable feedback.

And if you want close to perfect, extend your budget and look f... moreShubham it seems to me that he doesn't want to know which phone is best. He keeps coming back to the Nexus and I believe he is looking for someone to justify his preferance. You are spending far too much time on him for no purpose.

[deleted post]then you'll be okay with any one. The s5 has everything from 2 to 6 on your list and nexus has the 1st one.
See, for the octa, the nexus 5 is only 2-3 % faster in cpu. Like, my s4 gets 2470 in geekbench 3. And nexus 5 gets 2600 at max. the difference is in gaming. the nexus has 40% advantage there.
But i tell you, nexus is absolutely bad at camera. So you got a win here. And amoled is a beauty no matter you look at it. You just cant go back to lcd after it. LCD just feels like old stuff.
Go for S4. It's my advice. But nexus 5 isn't that bad for you.
Have a nice day
Please be very careful when you buy products from Samsung Service Centres. I bought a Made-in-Korea S4 battery at a Samsung Service Centre in Singapore last June/July. This spare battery and my S4 phone battery (Made-in-China) have rapid battery discharge and charging problems. The Service Centre exchanged the Made-in-China battery but claimed that the Made-in-Korea battery is a fake one and would exchange only if I have the receipt.
