And as I said, Snpadragon 800, 600, doesn't matter to me, not any more.
Those videos are old. But back at that time the M7 was also not on KitKat!

But you've asked it here. So yes, they'll receive those features which will be compatible. Like ultra power saving mode requires amoled screen, so it will be there. But don't expect the new camera ui or hybrid AF as they are hardware dependent. The new touchwiz will obviously come as soon as we get the update and it will be great as it will clear 3 gb bloat as well as the new touchwiz is much much smoother and fast.
Don't expect all features but all which are compatible will come and the ui will obviously change. That's the only reason why I'm keeping my phone for 1 year more.
The sane thing happened when s4 released and some features were given to s3 along with the ui but not all. That's Samsung's policy.
Have a nice day

Brand is doesn't matter, whether it is an Apple, Samsung, HTC, Sony or even OnePlus. I used this phone around 9 months. It's really a great phone.
Hi shubham yadav bro!! I need ur help. . I knw its a htc forum bt I wnt to ask u a question regarding galaxy s4 & galaxy note 3. Well I own a s4 & my friend own a note 3, my question is WILL THE GALAXY S4 & NOTE 3 get a new UI OR TOUCHWIZ features like(extreme power mode) etc being introduced in this year flagship GALAXY S5??? Is is possible shubham bro!! Waiting for your positive response. THANKS!!!

I am going for this after an super extensive search for ... moreRegarding videos, s4 has become quite smooth due to the firmware updates and the videos are quite old. Plus those videos have the i9505 which is quite slower than i9500. So they don't do justice. Plus I've used m7 myself and it's not much faster. It's faster no doubt, but not by much after kitkat.
according to your needs, performance and vanilla android, did you look at nexus 5. It's much faster than m7 and the camera is also ok. Plus it'll heat up less than m7 as m7 heats up due to less efficient s600 SoC. The nexus 5 has snapdragon 800 and is a real speed beast. If any phone can match the speed and smoothness of m8 and s5, is nexus 5. You should consider it at least.
AnonD-89109, 12 May 2014Lol, no pal, didn't hit any stone.
I am going for this after an super extensive search for ... moreOhh. Yes that's true to some extent. But with the kitkat update and doing some tweaks
in developer options, my s4 has become quite smooth. Actually I exchanged my s4 with a friend's m7 for a week and the experience was kinda bad. The screen is small and not upto the mark and the camera has a purple hue in low light and is practically unusable in most scenarios. Battery life is also slight less and ui Has just too less options. I missed the notification bar too much. Audio quality was not on par with s4 as the adapt sound is much better than that beats audio.
The one had quite good advantages though. It doesn't lag in system apps and it's fast. The speakers are great for calls and casual use and the design, absolutely great. I fell in love with it.
I use all of the features like multi window, group play and s health and simply can't leave them. Additionally, the bloat in touchwiz is quite less in the new touchwiz(s5) and I'll get an update soon. The s5 is as smooth as an m8 just the animations are slower which can be fastened in dev options.
Ohh, and that great cpu opens apps faster, does video decoding much better and captures 120 fps 720p video and can play that at any speed. The octa core heats up but provides an awful amount of RAW power that opens and plays non system apps faster. Touchwiz can only make system apps slower but the downloaded apps will be faster on s4 due to cortex a15.
You are completely right,
To each is own. HTC is not for me. I use my smartphone much for multimedia and you for your business. So we both have completely different needs and hence need different phones. I need a seriously powerful ui and touchwiz is the only one that offers such power like the floating video player, brightness slider in notifications and these small features make my life really easy.
Moto x is just fast and these features take a great hit on battery life. Plus a 720p screen and selling it at a high price are not very great decisions by Moto.
You have made a right decision. Have a good time. Don't mind sharing your experience once you get it.
Have a nice day
[deleted post]Lol, no pal, didn't hit any stone.
I am going for this after an super extensive search for four days, and I was literally shocked to see how could a device like Moto X, which is just 370 USD could outperform a top line flagship like S4, M7, G2 etc. That was just the most surprising thing I have ever seen. So that was the turning point for me. I kept defending Samsung and their TouchWiz for too long, but they do know how to frak up a device with their insanely heavy and bloated TouchWiz. I hated Android because of lags, but I simply had no idea that it lags because of TouchWiz. Sense isn't perfect either, it definitely is worse than Vanilla Android pure experience, but in comparison with TW, well YouTube has plenty videos comparing S4 and M7, kindly see those.
I was going for Moto X to be honest. That is one beautiful piece of idea. Active notification, WOW. A compact and beautiful design, so easy to hold and all, but it let me down with it's really bad camera, 720p display and no root for KitKat yet. So I went for M7. Cause M8 is way too big for me. I need a phone which I will be able to use with one hand comfortably. Also I wanted a sturdy built phone, which M7 is, I don't think there is any other phone other than M8 which could come even close to these. Build quality is a huge thing for me, I don't baby my phones. I needed a strong vibrating device. It seems by reviews M7 is just that. I don't care what specs it have, what's the point of having an octa, or double octa core CPU if it can't perform fluidly? At least it doesn't make any sense to me, nor it will in future. To me the only 'downgrade' happened in the camera section from S4 to M7, that won't have any impact on me as I take around ten photos in a month, sometimes not even that.
To each his own. To me, I am done with features. Performance is the main thing, always was for me, I just didn't know what I was missing! Thanks to the S4 for giving me horrible experience so that I did some research further. Jeez Samsung, focus on Tizen will ya? Android isn't your cup of tea, at all.
I will use the M7 for around six to seven months, then I will check the newer version of Moto X whatever it will be called, whatever it is, it will be a pure Android phone for me.
Other than the size of M8, the ongoing topics about the build quality concern and cheap lens drove me off from it, also on reddit people said M8 has lower vibration intensity than M7! Also I valued the money, paying 80% extra than what I got for S4 to upgrade to M8 was just ridiculous for me.
The above are all my view. I did take a hit on my head, but not with any stone, with some practicality ;) Thanks to all the great reviewers of YouTube.
Anyone can buy anything. If you like S5 go buy it, if someone else like M8 go buy it, heck buy even iPhone if you want, I certainly don't care any more.
[deleted post]Dont like the M8 design, the One have a way better design, for my opinion.
