Chill out guys..its a forum not a wrestling arena. Change is constant, nothing is permanent. So go for any mobile u want. You will use it for 2 to 3 years at maximum if u are a gadget freak. Keep it simple silly ;-) the companies don't pay you for publicity. So just chill coz ur lifetime is enough to use all the cells.

What about the KNOWN ISSUES for S4 as below, any solutions for them as well.

1. When the user is in weak 3G coverage areas, the phone might show a 3G signal but fail to receive calls

2. Users might observe slower download speeds even in good coverage areas

3. You will not be able to do USB tethering on a computer with Mac OS

4. You will not be able to find Flash player application on Google Playstore

5. The phone will convert an SMS to MMS if the user enters more than 1600 characters (10 SMS's)

6. LTE capability of the device is disabled on the phone and the phone will not detect or camp on any 4G network

7. HD Voice is disabled in the software and hence users will not get HD voice

8. Networks issues when users perform a manual network search and select a network other than 3

9. Increased time spent on 2G networks while roaming

10. Flash is not supported by this device, certain websites will not function correctly without Flash.

11. The device will not camp on a 4G network if downloading or streaming started whilst on a H/H+ signal

12. You may observe download failures when the phone is camped on a 4G network and a voice call is made or received from the phone

13. When the customer is roaming outside of the UK and tries to enable tethering on a roaming network, the customer may not be able to browse on their phone and can only browse on the PC or device connected to their phone

Don't worry, you can fix them pretty easily. If you're eyeing the handset, go for it. You'll not regret it.

Have a nice day

> In reply to [deleted post]See, this is i9500 forum which doesn't support 4g or LTE. I think you should go to i9505 s4 forum. So I have no clue about that. And that mac os thing. I don't own a mac but you should be fine with wifi hotspot in phone. If that is an issue, that's apple's fault of not integrating mac with Android.

Regarding the network issue, the phone has an excellent reception and astounding sound clarity once you enable adapt sound and I didn't notice any of the issue you mentioned during my 1 year. The phone has strong reception and manual search works fine. About the HD voice I have no idea but that's a feature of network and that is network dependent. So how can it be disabled in software and why?

Have a nice day. I am shubham and now darkgamer. So please call me by this name.
