Jones123, 08 May 2013Update to the latest firmware ota. it solves battery issues and heating problems.Is flip cover... moreYes Jones. Yes.
Every time you get a smartphone, put a screen protector.
ALL Smartphones scratch. All of them. Regardless of what they tell you.
Get a screen protector. It's invisible anyway. You'll be sorry you didn't.
You'll treat it like gold. It will live in fluffy feather pillows and one day you'll be looking at it and, sure enough , a scratch. You won't know how or when it happened, but there it is. And once you see a scratch; you will always see the scratch. Your eyes will go to it all the time.
I went to see this phone yesterday.
This is NOT the phone I was waiting for. Maybe next year. It's totally un- impressive. The soup of features don't impress me. I don't mind pushing once on a button instead of waiving my hands around.
It's a step up from the GS3, but nothing that wants to make me drop my iphone.
Update to the latest firmware ota. it solves battery issues and heating problems.Is flip cover really needed for gs4. Is screen guard really needed? I hav not installed as it has gorilla glass. But I have heard it gets scratched by sand.so do we really need screen protector or not.please help.
i knew that, 07 May 2013 i asked you how much memory can you use on 16GB iphone 4 , can you read ? , i didn't ask ... moreOut of 16GB the iPhone 4S will show 13.6GB
Out of 16GB the GS4 will how 8.6GB.
The GS4 has a lot of features and its the first phone I've ever seen with half the storage gone out of the box.
Here in thailand people are complaining about that.
Sad thing is, people won't use most of those features that are taking up space.
Honestly the phone is a little too light in design, there is no feel of being felt real or durable I would say.
Didn't like how it weighs, it felt so light, like it's a toy for kids. Too light like it feel somewhat hollow inside. Not a compact solid feel you get on all other previous Galaxy phones. Grabbing it from a day to day basis makes you feel clumsy,like it has so soul to it. That feeling.
Otherwise in Spec, Screen, and performance fantastic!
In terms of weight I prefer the S3 or S2 they feel solidly refine that feels right!: Yes your brain tells you that's a Phone not a toy(like this one- S4)
i knew that, 07 May 2013one more thing in e-mail go to setting then font size change it to Normal , yours would be se... moreemail is quite reponsive to ai view...but d least senstive is s-planner....just doesnt respond to airview at all...

ad, 07 May 2013Plastic phones looks really very cheapyea even i had my iphone 4 got chipped off from all sides when fallen from a 5' height n from that day i swear it never to get an iphone again... plastic is comfort... for some its cheap... for me its great...
I have BlackBerry Z10, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4. And now I need to get Windows Phone 8 between Samsung Ativ S or Nokia 920. But I think among all Samsung Galaxy S4 is the best!
dr wave, 07 May 2013no no sir...i mean i think d ai view isnt dat sensitive......or is it at my set only?? i ne... moredo you have Webpage magnifier turn on under Air view , if yes then go to back to your e-mail and try pointing your finger just a lil past the e-mail you want to read , God be my judge am doing it now with no problem , i practice everyday and night i want to master these features in front of my friends , hope that helps

Update to the latest firmware by kies or Odin. After this update the heating issue is not there and also some issue. I9500xxuamdk which is being released recently.
Have been a htc user for about 5 years but opt for the s4 and loving it with only 2 complaints which are important to me 1# why doesnt samsung have auto text adjustment on web pages??? Zooming in and out to get it perfect is so annoying on s4 compared to the htc sense 2# when viewing photos you have to hit a button to change from portrait to landscape instead of just rolling phone, so so annoying :( other then that good phone samsung
