If you wanna compare android and ios then you should use nexus devices against iPhone. S4 is not pure android. You won't find any lag in nexus devices. I had got my hands on a iPhone 5 and 5s in airport. I found the animation to be slow. Maybe that's why it doesn't seem to lag. While android animation are quicker. I realized that I made the right choice by opting for s4 over iPhone 5. Although heating is still a bit of concern to be.
adviser, 05 Nov 2013Xperia ultra z and Xperia z both are good All production of Sony are better than any brandsThnx bro...
That is why I am going to buy a note 3 ,not a s4. The Note class is over the s class . 3 gb of ram and most impotrantly usb 3.0.
Now i am not using s-view cover but still may be the software corrupts & during using of the device s-views date & time flickers. this is a unthinkable problem.
Actually I really dont know that what happened with samsung. After upgrading to android 4.3, my device is slight laggy in operation, touchwiz & application opening. As i test the Antutu benchmark, this also only 23750 less then from previous android 4.2.2 version where that was more than 25000.
Aj, 05 Nov 2013beciz of d excessive heating samsung is not launching 4.3 fr s4the update to 4.3 is already out...
For all those who think s4 is not far different S3
Stop consoling yourselves
S4 is miles ahead with its Full HD display, Airview and gestures & 2 GB RAM
S3 was a pathetic phone sold based on creative marketing ===== Designed for (Dumb) Humans
I really hate Samsung Knox
Feel it is not very practical app and consumes lot of device memory
Has anyone got something different to say about KNOX!!!
Its a pretty cool phone,not much different than S3 but looks pretty good in your pocket.
Ali9653, 05 Nov 2013Which one to go for.. S4 or nexus 5 or xperia z1nexus 5 is a good choice.

i am very like samsung galaxy s4 .because it now 3rd generation beautiful smart phone.
From all comments by users of this phone, it's obvious the phone is problematic. Battery issues, lagging issues, heating up and other uncountable faults. My question is did Samsung take enough time to look into this device before unleashing it to the unsuspecting populace? Well, I think my LG optimus g pro is way better than this. Yeah, you may talk about LG not getting updates but I also think Samsung is a culprit too in that regard. My friend has Note2 for over a year now and it's still 4.1 jellybean.
Hey I am also feeling very bad with its camera lags and picture quality.I observed that if we lowered its resolution 1 step down to 4128*2322(16:9) 9.6 mega pixel from 4:3 13 mega pixel,i noticed better pictures with no lags in opening and all that.Does anybody also noticed the same?
koi, 04 Nov 2013who buys a s4 to make phone calls O.oDear koi, the primary use of a phone is to make calls through it however costly it may be. Dear you tell me would you a phone which has no calling facility, I think you wouldn't, you will think twice. You can read even on gsmarena about those things. The tabs which have no calling facility have fewer hits.all other functions are secondary. I believe
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2013@Manoj - Are you sure you have a S4 ? I seriously doubt it. Dear, I do own an s4 if you need proof, please give me your email I will send its purchase bill no. And its photo. Dear why would anyone lie without any ground and why would I speak ill of Samsung I have no personal grudges against them.so don't doubt any more
