Every damn phone comes with a plastic film over it... It is because, in case any accident happens the phone does not any scratches... Also there are plastic films covering the edges of the phone.... This does not make any difference...

The brightness comparison in the tests done by GSM says that the brightness of S4 is higher than S4 mini. But when I keep the phones side by side, I see that mini is brighter than S4. My first S4 from Amazon had the screen freezing and and at times screen used to get shorter with rest of the area in black. I sold it off and then bought another S4, two weeks back as I really like it's design and high screen area. But a week now and issues with the screen has started. By the way, both of them were updated to lolipop.

If this is original GG3, it should not be needing any such protection, and, I have never seen any phone (except for the cheap basic ones) being shipped with a screen-guard.
IMO these may be re-furbished versions with compromised internals, and may be sold at cheaper prices.
I have samsung galaxy s4. It is overheating. The problem is only at battery, if it connect with internet the battery only can be used for 4-6 hours. But if i dont use it so much it can be used for 9-10 hours. But for the features of this phone is awesome.i never regret for using this phone except the battery. This phone is awesome..
s4owner, 26 Jun 2015Russia has the OD4 update broOD4 is 17 april build like OD3. Almsot no difference.
Whether one has OD4 or OD3, it won't matter. Bugs faced are going to be the same.
Why are not we being given the OE1 builds though ? They are the latest 5 May builds
Hey I got this phone..but the battery life on my s4 i just can use it 4-5 hours only should i buy new battery or it is normal?...wifi,bluetooth and gps is off..and mobile data is always on..and when the phone is full charge..i use less than 30 minutes the battery goes to 75%..any solution??
A lot of countries has even received HOE1 lollipop update for S4 (5 May bulid)
But in India, Russia and many Asian countries no new update is being pushed out. We have been left on HOD3
Samsung needs to listen. They cannot leave users like that

Which is once again due to the materials used. The software is exactly the same. Chipset and related internals are the same. The display panel may not be manufactured from the same source as the old S4s, but is super amoled nonetheless, and should be of equal quality, contrary to many comments on this forum.

But the low price is just because of the fact that the company has stopped the production of the phone and only the last stocks are left, which are not getting sold... So its rate is getting low day by day.... The Samsung manufactured pieces have no changes...

johnj113, 24 Jun 2015And did samsung deep black has diffrent body like its more square or round than s4 white ?It only has a black body and a plastic leather back panel.... Nothing is changed except for that

There is absolutely no difference between black mist and deep black if they are both vietnam manufactured, or if they are both china manufactured. However, the new low price S4 (be it black edition or black mist) has slightly inferior quality materials in its build. Stop this rubbish about black mist being different from deep black. Any of the new S4's you'll get now are the same.
