Just go for s4. You won't regret it.

> In reply to shefo90 @ 2014-04-22 01:25 from Nr9Q - click to readThe 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 but the difference is very less.

LTE and developer support: Qualcomm devices will always have it.


So your choice now.

Infact when I purchased it, My frenz who owns iphone feels jealous on the looking at the feature of S4.

In fact just with the sinlge sight of S4 with screen on wouls make any one to fall in love with S4.

Hi friends, it is finally here. After weeks and months of waiting i just updated my s4 to 442 today 21/04/14(i am in Ghana, W/Africa). The immediate change i see is the notification bar is now white and also my phone memory which was 8 point something gb is now 16gb but it says my phone needs 7 point something gb to be running(which I don't know what it means). Now i will wait and see if there will be other changes as well,

Yup there is some bug in S4 update to Kitkat. which consumes 30-35% more battery power.

Samsung stated that the bugs are there and working on for patch fixing. but asusual u have to wait until the release of 4.4.3 and version

So pls stay away from kitkate update.

I bought Samsung S4 3 months back now suddenly while phone was in my front pocket its display stop working.When I contacted customer care they were saying you have to pay to repair your phone which is costing 7k. Please suggest me the way as my phone is under warranty but Samsung Provider was saying we can not provide physical damaged warranty & there I tell you my phone was not drop by me it was inside pocket only.

Please suggest me the way where should I go to lower the repairing cost

Regards,
Vaibhav

S4 sucks, its another major failure of Samsung after S3 the battery dies in no time and phone gets heated up if you use internet for just 10-15 min, I m sure S5 will also end up in a disasters.

I think there is an app on play store which displays the charging rate of samsung phones. I think it's name is galaxy charging current or such. Check it out and tell me the results. when screen is on it should be 1200 mA and when off it should be 1900 mA

Have a nice day
