Even if you open up 50 apps at once, it handles them.

THIS PHONE WILL NEVER HANG. And if you experience slowdowns, just restart it.

The phone doesn't become slow on use. That thing is true for low end androids and mid-range ones.

Have a nice day

> In reply to The-MJ @ 2014-06-07 00:25 from KAeD - click to readthe way to select is you press on a part of text you want to select. After one second or so, a start and end point will be available to you for selecting the part you wanna copy. just select it and you'll be given 2 options: copy and cut. Choose whichever you want to choose.

Now to paste, press on an empty text box. You'll get 2 options, paste and clipboard. Now paste simply pastes the last copied or cut text but clipboard is something special. It contains the last few things you copied. Let's say you copied a text a few days ago and now want to paste it. But you've copied another thing now and want to access the previous thing.

It's a fairly easy process. If you didn't understand me, i'm sorry. Just see the video on youtube for better understanding.

Have a nice day

Besides, it's a fairly powerful smartphone and shouldn't experience slowdowns. Just remember to do a restart every few days.

Have a nice day

All phone cameras are bad in low light as the sensors are too small.

To get a steady shot. Hold the phone from both ends with your elbows on your chest/stomach. Now breathe out and take a shot before taking breath in. You'll get a steady and unshken shot. Remember, use the night mode for low light, auto mode is useless in low light. Or enable the auto night detection from the top left corner menu.

Have a nice day

Hi darkgamer, I try out a lot of apps almost everyday, like the free app of the day on Amazon Appstore. Most often I uninstall the apps after a few hours /days. I make sure to empty the cache and data of the app before uninstalling.
Now my question is, will my S4 slow down because of this? I know that Android doesn't have a registry like Windows but I don't know enough to be able to rule out some data buildup somewhere deep inside the system. Of course I manually delete any files/folders from the sd card that is left from the uninstalled app.
Basically what I wish to know is, does Android leave traces of apps after they are uninstalled? Beside some logs somewhere, maybe?

> In reply to The-MJ @ 2014-06-06 16:12 from U@Hy - click to readThe powervr SGX544mP3 in s4 i9500 is a simply better GPU. It's so much smoother and renders games better. It has got a massive fill rate advantage over the adreno 320 as powervr GPU has around double fill rate. Now the fill rate decides how smoothly the frames are rendered.

Let's say both adreno 320 and powervr sgx544mp3 render a game at 30 FPS ( frames per second), then even though the game is at same framerate, the adreno will wobble here and there and show signs of dropping frames whereas the sgx544mp3 will be consistent and will appear much smoother.

the sgx544mp3 also has better framerates.

For example, Epic citadel ultra settings:

adreno 320 in i9505/Snapdragon/4G version: 38FPS.
powervr sgx544mp3 in i9500/octa: 47FPS.

The antutu 3D and other benchmarks have similar results.

So the powervr is better either way. If you don't agree to my point, see the video of comparison between i9500 and i9505 by erica griffin on youtube. She also reached on similar conclusion that powervr GPU is much better.

Have a nice day. Feel free to ask it again or anything. I'm free as i'm on a vacation so i'll be happy to reply.
