I got my S4 yesterday its a beautiful peace of Art but i dont know for what is the R&D doing in Samsung are they like high on something a perfect phone but heating issue seriously sucks
Like are u guys crazy over at samsung releasing a phone that heats up !!! first HTC screwed up and now samsung !!! i never expected from u sami !!! fix this issue or alot of ur fans are dumping u and going to the american brand apple
I have i9500 for about 3 days now, what i can say about the battery is that just the same with previous samsung phones, i9100, i9300, n7000, n7100, it drains fast for the first 2 cycles then drains normally afterwards. i get around 13 hours on my 3rd day same usage with i9300 which is not bad, i can only get 12 hours with mobile data, heavy use, max brightness with my i9300. like wise i can only get around 7 hours with iphone 5.
this phone really is a very big step up compared to i9300, build is more solid.(compared to its predecessor) and a lot faster. you need to use this phone to really appreciate. no use of just looking at the net and reading reviews.
also it gets hot, but not overheating i think. just the same with i9100, a bit hotter than iphone but not as hot as ipad3 or 4. lumia 800 hottest phone i ever use.
ugly as touchwiz could be all i can say is it is by far the easiest to use and more productive. plastic with this model also is easier to scratch, i had one alredy. i havent got the htc one but xperia z is no match barring the looks. that phone really is a piece of art.
buy one first before making your comments.
Samsung is boasting heavily on this S4. But what to check in this boasting is:
No sturdy material used as chassis. Its just a cover of weak plastic.
Even some people don't know why so many sensors sit in this machine. 5" is OK, Removable battery A+, but putting Rs. 41,500 on this piece is a tiresome and foolish decision. Instrad go for Galaxy Grand. Atleast half of your hard earned will be saved. Same 5" Jellybean, with a fewer sensors. What does one need more? Moreover Full fledged LTE in India will be somewhere around Q4, 2020 Up. Never Waste Money: Invest some for future, Because Future is Uncertain.
It gets overheated in a matter of few minutes.
I strongly Advice to stay away..
Octa core ir even quad core is not needed in a phone it's pure overkill. Dual core is enough
amazing while comparing with other phone diśplay s awesome and the nly drawback is over heating
i think this octa core thing is still need more improvement and stability they make same mistake as lg do, they want to have the first android phone that have 8 cores but still this needs more polish now the early users of this superphone has experienced many problems like over heating
sorry for my english

rmt, 04 May 2013can i download fm radio function in s4Fm antena is not present so if u install fm radio app it will nt be useful
I really wanted to buy this phone however losing almost half the internal storage due to bloat-ware is a complete JOKE!! Plus when some games are now more than 1GB and cant be moved to SD 8GB is very low. I mean I am willing to pay more and buy 32GB or 64GB version, ONLY if Samsung ever sell a higher capacity version in the UK. They just want higher profit margins.
