Just checked I9500 Galaxy S4 in a shop, lags a lot because normally the 1.2 - A7 cores are on most of the time to save battery and they are really slow. And god save someone from a burnt S4 as overheats a lot. The only good things are screen and features.
AnonD-142775, 06 May 2013Ya mine s also heating vry much..any solutions fr it??Indain samsung Enxyos chip which even Samsung knows its Overheating issues thats why it has been released in less countries( in perticular only in asia where samsung dominating the market ) in Europe and USA they released S4 with snapdragon 600 which very good in performance.
You has to suffer with hi temp ..rooting the phone and removing touch wiz might reduce temp bit extent but overheating is unavoidable.. one more thing ask for replacement so much returns can make them stop Enxyos version.. and release Snapdragon versions
The indian version of phone is becoming very hot..cant speak for maoee than half an hour.. its becoming damn hot even while using internet also..any solutions??
Stranger, 03 May 2013Guys if u don't mind, can anyone suggest me which phone to buy, either Iphone 5 or Samsung Gal... moreDefinitely the Galaxy s4, it beats the iPhone 5 at almost evrything. If you are patient, wait to see what the 5s/6 is like. It might be better than the Galaxy s4.
roadster92, 03 May 2013I owned the GS4. Here are my comments after 3 days of playing with it: Pros: 1. Qcomm S6... moreMy S4 battery improves dramatically after few days of use. Something happened with iPhone 5 where battery drain was heavy during initial days but later it has stabilized.
No questions S4 has superior functionalities while iPhone has superior build quality.
I can expand S4 memory without having to shell out Apple premium while Apple gives continuous minor software updates whereas Samsung has OS ahead of iOS 6 on many fronts and its hardware is also future ready.
Knox, NFC, S Band shall give more armor to your S4.
S4 will be my recommendation. FYI I have both.
audio quality test !! why is the same on both 9500 and 9505 ???? they don't have the same dac !! you just copy and paste the same results ??
great review especially the measurements on audio specs.
there seems to be an increase of folks hearing "crackling" noises through their head sets globally.
have you picked this up and any idea if this is a software or hardware issue?
Guys if u don't mind, can anyone suggest me which phone to buy, either Iphone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S4 ???
I will be thankful for your comments ...
I owned the GS4. Here are my comments after 3 days of playing with it:
1. Qcomm S600 make this phone fast.
2. Eye scrolling features, Gesture hovering features
3. Camera is fine with me. If you want better pictures, learn how to utilize different mode and settings for appropriate conditions. Auto mode for any picture taking is not going to make a perfect picture on any cameras included DSLR camera. I don't use auto mode.
1. Phone is too light too hold that make it easier to slip (this is why I don't like Iphone 5). Now it cost me another $30 to buy a case to make it heavier and thicker.
2. Battery is OK, they should have included a bigger capacity battery (like Droid raz MAXX), this will make it a little thicker but It will help increase the mass of the phone to make it less flimpsy.
I play with HTC One before and I decide to fo with the GS4. Design wise HTC One look very slick (like Iphone5). However, when comparing the features I chose GS4. HTC One camera has advantage over GS4 in low light, but if you choose ISO mode properly, you should get decent pictures. Outdoor pictures should be GS4 should be the same or better. It depends on how you utilize your camera setting.
the problem with Samsung galaxy 4 in india is that its heating a lot although we have the gt9500 model with octa core... so a little heat is understandable but not so much .. it could almost light a gas stove that's how hot it gets!!!
Got the first update in india for some bug fixes etc of 53 MB hopefully fixes some laggs and software glinches

Srini, 01 May 2013I have purchased galaxy s4 on the release date. Retail package says it's 16GB but actually dev... moreIt's said that the built-in apps take up approx 8GB, so you get only another 8GB
