geordie81, 28 Apr 2013it depends on what you want from your phone? anyone with a s3 or any of last years phones will... morethank you for help i already wanted to buy this cool featured mobile...have a nice day with ur s4:D
i dont understand, why would you need so much power?htc one is way better
If u damage a S4 it gonna cost u less to get it repaired....
but if damage an iPhone u gotta commit suicide!
Fact: the polycarbonate samsung uses in its phone can survive high temp.+its tough to brick unlike glass and alluminium+it costs less if damaged.
Nephylim, 28 Apr 2013power saving??? maybeMay be, but samsung has used a quad core processor for power saving which isn't capable of processing HD games... A quad core core without much processing power, Means u have a industry leading octa core processor but u can't play games as long as battery gets drained completely.......does it really makes any sense?????
Jbird ., 28 Apr 2013I think u r laughing at lagging s4...lolYea, there is lag.
Now, show me a video with lag in retail octa core version.
Show me it NOW or stop trolling
Nephylim, 28 Apr 2013LMAO !!! stop trolling !!! the video was posted march 23. I think u r laughing at lagging s4...lol
got it yesterday, overall good performance, but one thing i would like to mention... when battery gets discharged say below 15-20 %, cant use those Cortex A15 cores, and the remaining four cores are not that powerful to play games like NFS MW.. it crashed several times when i tried to play it with low battery.... was not expecting that though.....
con, 28 Apr 2013Pff.. eight cores and it still manages to lose in some of the benchmarks. Octa core my ass.4 powerful (normal) cores, 4 power-saving cores. Only 4 are active at any 1 times, so the gain is not performance, but power saving.
Pff.. eight cores and it still manages to lose in some of the benchmarks. Octa core my ass.
Hi samsung and all android may lagg at one point and time guest what all smartphones do so to the apple nuts get a life samsung rules the smartphone world with the best overall smartphones htc sony lg and apple got 1 or 2 phones with the phrase superphone thats laughterable when samsung got a army of highend smartphones so until other companies start making a army of smartphones there buyers need to keep the BS talk to themselves specially iphone users since iphones aren't in the running for thing but a high price peace of and illusion
JBird .., 28 Apr 2013I know u r hurt, but what to do, truth is S4 lags. no hurts mate, i have an s4 and have not seen any issues apart from storage and ram issue, but if you cant be unbiased and offer clear accurate comments then you just need to keep quiet as you are just being petty rather then actually helpful to anyone
JBird .., 28 Apr 2013Just check here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KRyQNxGAVo S4 Lags at 2:44, even a kid can... morestop posting 5 week old videos of beta test firmware models, yes they clearly show lag but this is not the final build, put up videos,posted within the past 48 hours which will more accurately show usage... bias is not a reasonable comment, but realistic accurate videos will help people make a more informed decision.
asad adeel, 28 Apr 2013hey guys is it nice mobile?should i buy it or not? i love this mob but some people are compla... moreNot sure how to give recommendations based on few days of use. There is not fault in this piece so if you are worrying about RAM you need not worry because there are tons of ways you can handle this and most of these are software issues hence can be fixed. Display,size, battery, connectivity(WiFi ac standards), NFC, good camera, 4.2.2, plenty of customization.....no reason to hold your thoughts.....

S4Maniac, 28 Apr 2013Thanks buddy but it didn't really help moreover I don't want to clear anything other than S He... morefair enough,on my galaxy i have disabled a ton of bloatware, i do not use, depends on how you use your device i guess, but i removed things like learning, help ,user manual, books, magazines, movies, play, chat on, samsung apps, and much more, in total i removed so far 23 apps, and now i am ony using 539Mb ram, along with turning of sensors not used and various other tweaks most of the default apps are not needed, or are duplicates of 3rd party apps, but the whole ram and storage is a pain, on such a powerful device
