I am planning to buy a phone tomorrow and i am confused between S4 and nexus 5. Personally i felt s4 screen is bit smaller but it says its 5". So i am confused , kindly provide your suggestions.
All suggestions are highly appreciated.

The Mali t-628 outperforms the adreno 320 and is about 10% slower than the adreno 330. 10 percent slower than 330 adreno, OpenGL ES 3.0 support,better thermal handling ensuring no performance twitches with stable frequency cycles. Calling it crap is toooooo harsh!
mu96XT, 29 Mar 2014How did you base Samsung GPUs crappy? Elaborate with references.
Core migration NOT POSSIBL... moreMali-T628 is not crappy. It's just too weak as compared to adreno 330. powervr-sgx544mp3 is slightly powerful than adreno 320 but that is the reason i bought an i9500. After S4, note 3 and s5 exynos versions are weaker than snapdragon in gpu. Let's take gfxbench 3.0. Mali-t628 scores 6 fps where adreno 330 gets 9-10 fps. So there's a lot of difference.
And the S5 gpu will score even more 12 fps as it's even more overclocked adreno 330. And tegra K1 is 2-3 times more powerful gpu than adreno 330. So yes, gpu in exynos are crap.
For the cluster migration. There is a long thread on /xda by adreilux(a renowned dev) on this. There is a chip level defect in s4 and note3 chips that make it impossible to do core migration. However, S5 can do core as well as HMP(heterogenous Mlulti Processing) that can even involve all 8 cores if needed.
Have a nice day

Core migration NOT POSSIBLE at all? Please verify this with references too.
PowerVR SGX544MP3 (A crap? LOL)... and Mali-T628 MP6 is stated to perform twice faster, stop spreading baseless POV!

But only 1.6 quad core exynos can smoke 2470 in geekbench 3. This is very close to snapdragon 800 score. Imagine what 2.1 Ghz HMP variant of s5 will do. It'll probably cross 4k which'll make it unbeatable.
However, the exynos versions come with crappy GPUs. The exynos note 3 was not even close in gaming with snapdragon one. So unless samsung equips them with proper GPU, i won't buy an exynos.
Exynos new gen (Gen 5) Chiipsets are more capable in thermal handling. They work full frequency unaffected by high temperature (wiki Dynamic frequency scaling (also known as CPU throttling)). Quoted(http://forum.beyond3d.com/show...mp;page=30):
"getting to my point I have saw the highest thermal handling on the latest Exynos 5 chipset vs any previous qualcomm offering. My qualcomm GS3 and a friends GS4 qualcomm destabilize on high mhz or even stock 1890 if over 90+c which unless I go beyond the power supply of the battery has not been true on this 5410.
Thus capable of playing extended sessions of high end gaming lagless and no hiccups!Consider the extreme temperatures we bear in Summers and Winters in South Asia! Exynos is for us!
I updated my software my phone 4.3 to 4.4 kit kat now my phone hanging what I do?
Quoted from a educated poster at XDA-Developer:
All of Qualcomm's chips through S-800 are based on five year old ARM designs. A lot has changed in five years. So while it's less "safe," I'd pick big.LITTLE over an existing Qualcomm chip solely because it represents the future. And in being the first to release it, Samsung's going to devote a lot of attention to perfecting it. As will the other 17 licensees. S-600 is what it is and its day in the sun will be brief.
There are three ways of transferring load from LITTLE (low frequency CPUs) to BIG,
1. Cluster-migration: 4 A7 or 4 A15 and not any other combinations.
2. Core-migration: Up to 4 cores working together with every combination possible.
3. Multi-Processing: All 8 cores can work together.
Samsung has categorically stated that the new implementation in S5 has the Core-migration variant working perfectly well!Multi-core processing is not feasible in mobile devices owing to excessive battery drain. Hopefully the improved implementation may be brought to S4 I9500.

i am confused about to buy galaxy s4 and note 2 .
please tell me which ph... moreS4 is better because camera 13 mp in note two 8 mp.processer also more powerful than note 2 good and more camera functions looking more beautiful than. Note 2. S4 have a full hd display.Only 1 disadvantage that is battery
S4: 2600 mah
Note 2 : 3100 mah
Hi I just bought a s4 i9506 s4 with lte+ when in to facebook through web but picture is blur and small why izit so? Use to have an s3 but I got no such problem
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2014my s4 i still running on 4.2.2......y so??? i am from indiadude u have to check updates..in software update section..i also hv s4 nd from india too.nd i updated it 2 months ago to kitkat
