Anyway, it's not that useful and i don't recommend rooting. I rooted after my 1 year warranty got over.

Have a nice day

advantages of s4 over g2:

better screen
better camera
removable battery
sd card slot
cheaper

advantages of g2:
bigger screen
faster GPU ( better gaming in very high-end games)
better battery life

Choose what suits you. Just don't go for z1. z1 is really bad in screen, heats up a lot and camera is not upto the mark. You'll regret z1.

After 1 week, come here again if you have problems. Then you can do optimizations that will work.

Have a nice day

For originality, install CPU-Z and check if it's exynos processor.

> In reply to Jai @ 2014-06-24 19:20 from tUa5 - click to readSimply G2 = s4 > nexus 5 > desire 816.

The only comparison here is between g2 and s4. The rest 2 are shit. I own both g2 and s4. Please note that 16 GB g2 is useless as g2 doesn't have a sd card slot. So I'll compare 16 GB s4 v/s 32 gb g2.

Reasons to buy s4:

1. 16 GB s4 is cheaper than 32 GB g2.
2. SD card slot
3. Removable battery
4. Better screen( 441 PPI, infinite contrast, better blacks and more color gamut)
5. Slightly better camera( better modes and pnorama. Also slight more details and dynamic range)
6. Compact


Reasons to buy G2:
1. Better GPU( smoother gaming)
2. Better battery life
3. Slightly bigger screen.


Have your choice. Ask anything that you want.

With sprint, but have friends that have S4's on verizon. all can barely get a signal. Mine has 0-to-1 bar 99% of the time and has not had data since I received it. It picks up Sprint's spark lte, but still does not have data, even when the spark icon is lit. Antenna capabilities register 1000x weaker than the previous S3 model on bench equipment tests. Works well as anything but an actual phone. I live in a great signal area and my Note3 has no issues.
