I'm a developer and I have been using s4 since 1 and half years I'll clear all your doubts regarding this phone ihv used black mist and white and last week ihv bought one deep black for my brother using this phone for a week till my brother comes from out of town..
1-people say that mrp is less 23500 and Amazon cheating Mrp is lowered here coz they want to save import duty just imagine already samsung is selling the phone at cut throat price and they want some profit also.. So less mrp low import duty and profit business model..
2-PHONE HAS NO WARRANTY
seriously this was the most stupid question I heard in the reviews when clearly written 1 year manufacturer warranty and above all amazon and flipkart don't sell products without genuine manufacturer warranty.. That's why I prefer only amazon or flipkart.(courier service and customer support of flipkart is better)
3-PHONE IS MADE IN VIETNAM
samsung's largest factory is in VIETNAM and again 3 billion dollars samsung has invested in November 2014 in VIETNAM for new factory also VIETNAM govt has given samsung no corporate tax for 4 years and for next 9 years half of corporate tax.. So obviously they'll make there phones.. According to samsung making phones in VIETNAM is 4 times cheaper than making in China and 6 times making in india..so less labor less tax.. That's why made in VIETNAM and phone is cheaper for us
4-WHY FLIPKART AND OTHER SITES SELLING IT COSTLY? WHY I SHOULD BUY FROM AMAZON CHEAPER MEANS CHEAPER QUALITY OR DUPLICATE?
FLIPKART AND OTHER sites have the old stock which was made in India and with mrp of 33500/ obviously they can't lower than 22k to earn profit.. Also there's a contract between samsung and Amazon and flipkart for products like galaxy s 3 neo for 12.5 k only on flipkart and 17999 s4 only on amazon you check price of s3 neo on amazon it's 24k so that doesn't means it's fake and all.. It's market strategy to live and let live others.. Every one gets there share
5- why samsung has lowered the price it's worst brand?
First of all the product is too old it's 2 years old and in technology world 2 year means millions of years.. Those who have bought phone for 42k already have switched to s5 or some other high ends.. The price lower is a good sign for middle class public in india so that they also can taste what a flagship is.. Let us not whine let other people also should enjoy the privilege of buying high end phones from reputable brand rather than buying from some cheap companies don't be like whiners initially we shout samsung phones very costly what the hell when samsung lowers the price we again shout samsung bad company they lowered the price.. Samsung doesn't give lollipop rom fast when samsung gives than we shout why you have given kitkat was better .. Be grateful guys
6- SAMSUNG MAKES PLASTIC PHONES?
What material will decide the technology.. Seriously.. OK plastic have better network reception more durability lighter in weight.. Remember our beloved Nokia 3300 & 1100 all plastic throw them and they are again intact because of plastic only and mechanism of disamble.. As soon as it falls phone back cover battery opens thus distributing shock so the screen doesn't break.. So I'll say it's blessing in disguise.. I have 2 nexus and one iphone trust me a memory card is really a big deal your data is so secured whatever happens format.. Service Centre whatever s your SD card is there with all your data and as soon as you get phone you're ready and yes the white frost and black mist are too shiny and slippery.. So personally I'm also in love with deep black with leather back.
7- THERE'S NO LOLLIPOP UPDATE FOR DEEP BLACK?
YES at present there's no lollipop update for deep black edition only black mist and white frost model.. But it will come surely after a while.. I have updated my other phones with Lollipop trust me there's lot of bug that will irritate you to the core so kindly wait for the proper build and bugs to be fixed even google lollipop has bugs today or tomorrow android 5.1 with bug fix coming to nexus and android one in india.. So kindly wait samsung will take time to clear all bugs may be months.. I would advice don't flash with Lollipop now by going to service Centre they are flashing white frost and black mist firmware.. There's only differnce of wallpaper and ringtone between other s4 and deep black..
8- xiaomi Mi4, lg g2, over plus one or Samsung s4?
Very tricky question i have used mi3 trust me it's pathetic cheap shiny material built looks like some kids have made the phone the fitting is not proper sim card doesn't eject properly so I don't expect much from xiaomi there are just better lava phones with good publicity department there rom miui is almost copy of ios and above all it has lot of bugs and service Centre support is like nothing.. You can buy xiaomi phone but I would say only redmi kind phones for, 5k 6k as a secondary smartphone.
Lg g2.. Probably one of the best choice but price of g2 is still not stable it is better in every sense from camera to processor from battery to ui.. If you get for 20-21k go for it without any doubts
One plus one.. Yeah it's again a chinese phone but this one is seriously different from xiaomi and all awesome built brilliant screen better camera..64 gb store Good buy if you are in Metro where you have customer service support also it's 5.5 inch Phone.. I like bit compact phone.. Personal choice if you like big screen and you in Metro go for it.. It has cyanogen mod support that's really a big deal.. Actually cyanogen is better than Google Android though it is based on Google Android.. Sundar pichai went to buy cyanogen but cyanogen still remains Un owned..
Samsung galaxy s 4 - it has all features like full HD awesome camera and ok battery with plethora of service support so good buy for 18k..lollipop will be last official update for galaxy-s4
9-Galaxy s4 heats lot?
Exactly it heats a lot coz the processor was half cooked samsung made a octa core which is actually 2 quad core it's not octa core phone the two cores never work together if more fuel required task than 1.9ghz core works when less task than 1.2ghz core and in battery saving mode.. But there's no synchronization so many times it heats up a lot which is quite normal with all smart phone but s4 it's more than other phones.. Not a big deal just close your Un wanted apps. This phone has fast charging yes exactly the quick charge was experimented fast on this processor only with 2 amp charger.. It's like turbo charger It has so many sensor never have been on any phone till date even it has humidity an temperature gauge.. These all features combined with thin body and 2 quad core processor makes this phone heats lot.
10-COURIER SERVICE AND PACKAGING WAS NOT GOOD?
yes the courier and packaging is not as good as flipkart but amazon allows you to open the outer box to verify your inner phone box is good.. My package was damaged and Amazon called me and asked me not to recieve this model and ordered for me one more with one day delivery and the 100 Rs extra which I had to pay was credited to my wallet I would say always buy from flipkart and Amazon.. They are most trusty and customer oriented e sellers in india
11-Will all normal s4 accessories fit in deep black?
Yes almost all but few tight covers you have to apply more force than normal s4.
12- SHOULD I BUY S4?
I HAVE written everything related to this phone.. Decision should be yours tomorrow you'll come should I marry this girl or not.. Take your decision that will only give you complete satisfaction.. And above all its just a phone if by chance you made wrong decision not a big deal sell it buy other
Samsung is facing a very big competition and it's in a situation where it will be slaughtered by competition if it doesn't take immediate steps.. Already it has been dethroned from all countries where it was number 1 and also in 5 years it's profit is gone down and yesterday's report say it's not number one smartphone seller in world it has been dethroned by Apple iPhone 6 success which is first time in like 7 years.. So samsung is changing all its policy like s 3 neo 12k for fighting micromax nitro and moto g and s4 for 18 k for fighting mi4 and one plus one.
Does samsung galaxy s4 lags?
Yeah it lags sometime specially in gallery other lag you can remove by one simple trick dibble click home button in that s voice will open just disable s voice through home button
Black mist white and deep black all were available for 18k but no one was interested in cheap shiny black mist and white model so Samsung stopped the inventory coz every one wanted the beautiful deep black leather phone... Rip to those poor guys who bought the phone for 25k and 30k... Enjoying the lollipop though using normal lollipop version coz deep black lollipop was not released till that time and Samsung updated with black mist version of lollipop.. Thank you Samsung

Anonymous, 15 Apr 2015my benchmark test for ppi black edition is just 319ppi but for black mist it is 441 ppi screen... moreI have s4 deep black edition bought in India 6 months back. Its screen density is 441 ppi. S4 deep black edition is NOT the downgraded version of S4. I advice people to contact Samsung customer care to clarify about s4 deep black edition instead of depending on some people's misguiding opinions posted in forums like this.
I bought an unlocked S4 and am trying to get my number transferred over to it. Straight Talk is my carrier with an AT&T sim card installed. They are saying it is activated but my phone is saying No Service. I have tried different APN configurations but no luck. I have called customer service and no luck. Does anyone have suggestions????
There's no difference in white black or deep black in terms of hardware and software only difference is deep black looks more premium and beautiful.. Few people bought s4 for higher price that's y they spreading rumors.. May God give them peace
