why a Samsung flagship always has enough room for a microSD card, even with 16GB of space on board? Well, a look at the internal storage of the Galaxy S4 should make things clear. Samsung's base Galaxy S4 model is advertised to come with 16GB of storage, but a look at the Storage section of the Settings on a brand new Galaxy S4 reveals only 8.82GB is available to the user. That’s the total space available to users for installing apps and games, while the rest of the space is taken up by the OS and pre-loaded apps. In this case, that means Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI and apps like Samsung Hub and ChatOn, which are pre-installed on the phone. Having nearly half the memory taken up by the manufacturer’s software means that users are getting short-changed when they think they have bought a phone with 16GB of storage space.
The HTC One, which is currently the S4’s main rival, lists 7.14GB as taken up by the Taiwanese company’s software. But because only a 32GB version of the One is currently available, the situation is still a lot better than the S4. At this rate, customers will be almost compelled to opt for a microSD card when buying the Samsung Galaxy S4 because of the lack of internal memory.
As last we have no option but to root Samsung S4, so that we can sweep sd memory card for space.
Plz go n hav a luk at the phn 4 urself.. i bet u wld b surprised wid the luks of it.. its not an average looker at all.. i can say coz i i own it now n frankly went wid a mindset to turn it dwn coz of the so much talked bout deal breaker average luks.. but to my surprize i actually bought it coz i was pleasantly surprized wid the luks..atleast the black one.. yet to see the white one..
ayush yadav, 01 May 2013If we talk about the sound quality then it lags behind other newcomers like htc one ,xperia zNothing even comes close to the S4 sound quality when using headphones! S4 have almost perfect sound quality when using headphones, far better than even iPhone 4S and definetly better than the HTC One! Z have one of the worst sound quality!

Samsung galaxy s4 specifications and price in india
Samsung could make a very small phone that still have a very large screen when needed, thanks to flexible display: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...gdata_player
A day will come Samsung will have 100 core 100 Ghz processor and screen enough to be used at TV lol, seriously octa processor? why is it needed? there arent such load of softwares in markets which cant run on dual core!
I had the Iphone 4, and my S4 arrived today. I really had a hard time deciding between the S4 and the HTC One. I never had such a hard decision choosing a phone.. Anyways I played around with it and I'm blown away! I hated Samsung before for their lags and sluggish touchscreen but its perfect now! Dayummm I think I'll be using this phone for a while. So happy :D I would like to try the HTC One as well lol. Goodbye Apple!
Best phone ive owned. Best phone in the world. Who ever does not think so are just a pure haters. If ppl have a problem with the gimmicks, heres some advice, just dont use them. Well done Samsung, no wonder you are the world leaders in smartphones.
its a great mobile.... all the features are awsome... it is as good as iphone 5
Samsung Galaxy S4(Colour: Black)landed in my desk almost 40 hours ago, 1st impressions ...
Build> Far better than earlier 1s including SIII in terms of Look & Feel both though the plastiky feel remains, 7 out of 10
Display> Best as on date keeping Google Nexus, HTC Butterfly & Sony Xperia Z in mind, Unfortunately I have never experienced LG OPTIMUS G, 9 out of 10
Speed > Available benchmarks are good enough, no further comments
UI> Better than ever with true Buttery feel, 9 on 10
CAMERA> Excellent Back & Front Camera Performance, 8 out 10
Audio> Music & Voice both are of high caliber when my Beats Tour Headphone connected, decent when Phone Speaker in use, 7 out 10
Battery> Not more than 24 hrs with 3G ON even in moderate usage, but too early to conclude
No major grievance except few minor 1s...
>a better pair of Headphones was expected in the box itself
>Phone gets hotter with continuous usage like gaming or watching videos
If we talk about the sound quality then it lags behind other newcomers like htc one ,xperia z
Man phone os awsome interns of multitasking in terms camerA but there is heating issue I have check my cousin handset as well it's the same issue man if u want. Phone plus iron box better buy it or else best u can take s3
There was so much hype about the S IV I kind of expected something... new.
I know it's all badass on the inside but honestly it sort of strikes me as the lovechild of an S III and a Note II.
Still... Well done Samsung on the world's most powerful phone. :)
Heartstoler, 30 Apr 2013htc one is 10 times better than galaxy s4... wat a fat body.. I hate it..! look at htc one..... moreuhmm... first of all, S4 is thinner both in paper, in looks and in actual use. Second of all, it's gesture. Third of all, nobody cares if HTC One is impressive outside (everyone knows that!) S4 is being used as an amazing phone while your HTC One is used for design purposes
arriving next week at cmk philippines 29,990 pesos :) with official samsugn warranty
