Is the back glossy or textured? Two more things how's the sound quality, i mean is the phone loud enough to be heard at crowded places & how's the call quality? Actually i'm planning to buy this in a couple of days, i preferred this over xperia z & nexus 5.
Just a superb phone with a wow camera !!! The cons is a bit overheat when playing games or browsing and battery drain a bit fast but who cares, all smartphone also got that problem. Buy a powerbank and everything settled. Love my s4 for its great performance. Love it !!!!!
a very very gud xperince in procesoor speed gud image quality nd best screen
[deleted post]I am sorry to disappoint you but that news is for the google play edition of s4, htc one or moto G that sport pure stock android and not touchwiz one. The updates to these will be provided by samsung in may.
Have a nice day
i recently acquired the s4,i have not downloaded any apps except for the yahoo messenger,everytime i try to download an app from google store it fails because my system is running short on memory,what could be the problem here yet this thing is supposed to 32gb of storage space and 2gb of ram? firstname.lastname@example.org
Laurence , 17 Apr 2014Hi Sathish, if you have the budget.... The bigger screen the better... Comparing between S4 an... moreThat bigger screen is just HD. and hd at 5.5 inches is pathetic. S4 has a full hd screen which is much much better in sharpness.
For your information. A full hd screen had twice the number of pixels of an hd screen. And also s4 gas a smaller screen. So its even more sharp.
Bigger us not always better my friend.
Have a nice day

joy, 16 Apr 2014confused . please advice regarding s4 , will it be wise decision to buy it my budget is 30... moreHi Joy, go for S4. The best photo shoot images output so far (poor image from Sony, HTC). Great viewing angle for S4 (Xperia is the worst). HTC One have the best speaker output but photos shooting not as good as S4. LG not tested... I guess is way below S4 performance. Cheers
joy, 16 Apr 2014confused . please advice regarding s4 , will it be wise decision to buy it my budget is 30... moreI'm also researching on top class phones these days as i wanna buy a real smartphone, confused between xperia z,nexus5,lg g2 & s4,xperia z has poor camera, low sound, screen cracking issues & poor battery, nexus5 has poor audio quality with average camera, g2..well it's good but i'm not really convinced as lg are lazy in updating their phones. The only phone which is appealing to me is s4 as samsung is the most trusted brand & keeps updating their phones on regular basis, so i think i'll go with s4.

Which one is betrer
samsung S4 i9500 or samsung note 3 neo ?
can any one clear it pls.....
I am confused between choosing GS4 or Z1 Compact.
I really prefer Z1 Compact due to its size, but Ill definitely use a FLIP COVER.
GS4 has S-view cover which doesnt make its size much bigger, but Z1 doesnt have such an option, so when i use a Flip cover to Z1, will its size become equal to GS4?
Please help me friends.... (Email - Faizal.hhh@Gmail.com)

Saurav Ghosh, 15 Apr 2014Both model has almost same performance. I9505 is Snapdragon, I9500 is Exynos. I will pick the ... moreWhat an irony. I would pick the opposite. The i9505 and i9500 have a lot of differences if you don't know:
CPU: I9500 HAS 25% advantage in cpu. You should check geekbench 3 scores. Mine one scores 2450. Which is dangerously close to snapdragon 800 and much higher than 1900 of i9505.
Camera: i9500 uses exmor RS sensor vs exmor R sensor in i9505. The difference is pretty much in night shots. That's the reason exynos s4 can capture night shots pretty well in night mouse but i9505 is useless at night by all reviews. Also detail levels and colours of i9500 are better.
Audio: exynos always come with wolfson DAC which is better than qualcomm DAC with better volume levels and sound quality.
Battery: qualcomm have it better.
LTE and developer support: as you said. Qualcomm devices will always have it.
So what you say. You still prefer snapdragon.
Dhanish, 12 Apr 2014Hi buddies, I'm planning to buy this phone but i want to know difference between Samsung I9500... moreBoth model has almost same performance. I9505 is Snapdragon, I9500 is Exynos. I will pick the I9505 if it were available in my country, each time over the Exynos version. Just because it has WAY more support from XDA.
I have been using Galaxy S4 I9500 from almost 20 days.
used Android 4.3 for 6 days and then got the 4.4.2 update.
What I found is RAM usage dropped by 200MB, smoother animations
Less heating and better battery backup in power saving mode
(means its worth upgrading).
Few people have questions like "Is the phone/sceen gets heated"or Are there any lags?
Answer is Yes
I feel heating is natural and manageable as its not too much
Lags...hmmm i really hate but again its just under a second.
I cant compare with other same range phones as I never used any phone for a longer time to give a verdict.
Screen is awesome and I guarantee nobody in that price range can come even close to it.
Day time photos are superb. Night shots are bit grainy. (drama shot is a feature worth mentioning)
Front cam is very good and serves the purpose just right.
Smart stay is the only feature i felt very useful in this big feature list ( doesnt means others are useless as i didnt really got time to test them).
I own a black mist model so in the front it looks Very Premium and I use a Spigen case for my phone so i didnt really bother phone is made of plastic or metal.
Its very light comfortable to use.
User available space is around 8.9 GB out of 16GB
(games like Asphalt 8 and GT racing are not moving to external SD card so i have 4.6GB of free space in internal memory)
Regarding battery life, I am a heavy texter on whatsapp with Calling (3 hours), little browsing (10 min) and play games for some time (45 Min), I keep clicking photos as its my hobby. :)
I get a full day backup thats it. standy is awesome it hardly drops 2 percent in 7 hours when I am sleeping.
Phone will fully charge in 2 hours if used with S4 charger.
Hope some of you will find this review useful.
