Dear fellow phone enthusiast,

It is my experience still that the 3310 is still rocking! It just blows any phone mentioned here out of the water! S4, Xperia, Z, whatever. For me the selling point is the simplicity of the screen in the sense that you only have to cope with 2 colours. No overwhelming 16 million or however much colours. And the size is just nice, fits nicely into your hand. ;)

> In reply to Ravi @ 2014-05-23 05:27 from uvet - click to readWell said!! Xperia Z is one of the crappiest flagship phones ever, before buying S4 I tried it out & it was really disappointing with one of the poorest 13MP camera & terribly low sound still wonder why Sony made such a disgusting phone. You're absolutely right it can't be compared with S4.

You need to use S4 first then you'll come to know about it's capabilities,I preferred this over xperia z,nexus 5 & g2 & I'm totally satisfied n' happy with my decision,it's got everything I want,the phones I mentioned here were cheaper than S4 but still I didn't compromised on the price,S4 simply rocks!!!!

> In reply to dd @ 2014-05-23 15:31 from fCxh - click to readJust leave that thumbnail folder. I misread misc as music. Sorry.

Just stop caring about these small stuff. Android OS keeps gathering crap and this cache builds up over time. But this is never much. Only the browser gets too much crap. That needs to be cleaned once in a month.

Enjoy your phone and stop worrying too much. Did my suggestions helped in overheating and speed improvement??? And did you buy s-view cover??

I never needed clean master so I can't say for sure. In my suggestion just stop worrying.

Have a nice day

GO FOR S4. THIS WASN'T EVEN A COMPARISON.

Have a nice day

Regarding camera it's almost equal to xperia T2 ultra and better than grand 2.

I would suggest desire 816.

Have a nice day

> In reply to dd @ 2014-05-23 07:20 from fCx7 - click to readmusic should be kept in sd card. The internal storage is meant for only apps. Every app will have some cache and app data. Cache just makes the app run faster and remember your settings. app data remembers your skores, settings and all the data related to the app. So they'll pile up and you don't need to care for them.

You may clear the cache if it's too big let's say 50 MB but don't clear the app data as all your settings and data related to the app will be gone.

In all the versions of s4, only 8.9 GB is usable due to the huge number of apps preinstalled.

You should install clean master to clear junk and cache.

Don't care about the ram and do not try to kill apps. Android is made to consume RAM. free ram is wasted ram. The ram will never deplete or give you problems. If the app is consuming ram, it'll work much faster.

Only 1.82 is available as 0.18 gb is used as VRAM or graphic RAM. No Android phone has full 2 GB of RAM available.

Have a nice day

> In reply to darkgamer @ 2014-05-22 18:54 from X0Kj - click to readThen wat abt those cache n misc files..they wil keep pile up n taking a huge space? Bcoz in black edition out of on board 16GB 7.5GB z wid system n 8.5GB is only available for users. Even out of 2GB, only 1.82 available of which most of d time 800MB z alwys occupied..won't these slow down my device? Also factory reset z not alwys feasible 2 clear cache n misc files. Apps 2 clear cache don't helpful much..even after runnin many app fr clearing cache. .wen I go 2 application manager individual apps still have cache..so no meaning installing such apps which will run behind but actually not so useful
