Now, I advised you against C3 but you didn't listen. Glad you came back to senses.
The issue will be more in note 3 neo than other phones due to it using the older note 2's 5.5" 720p panel.
I think the guy named sunny has given you the solution. I don't use that but s4 has this issue lesser than note 3 neo. Also I keep the brightness a little high.
Anyway, this will go after lollipop update as the interface there is white.
I can tell you the cause of this issue if you want. It's hardware related. Reply to this and ask if you want more on this.
Have a nice day.
shetty, 01 Jan 2015Hello darkgamer, please can you shade more light on 'touchwiz'? I dont understand its function.Well touchwiz is a custom skin on top of android.
Understand it like this. Imagine android as an OS. The raw form of this OS is basically AOSP( Android Open Source Project). It looks a lot like the android in the nexus phones. However, they're not entirely same as AOSP doesn't have google services installed.
Now, android is a very customizable OS. Manufacturers can make their UI and load it on top of AOSP. They can change the interface looks and features and use their own kernel.
Like that, TouchWiz is a UI by samsung. It's pretty infamous on the internet because of trolls but not nearly as bad as they make it sound. Also it's the most functional and feature laden UI.
Hope that helped. Ask me again for any help.
Best phone for Rs. 21000.
Cant be better than this.
Every phone has some bugs, so is samsung.
So, go for galaxy S4 blindly,
Lolipo coming Soon.......!!!!!

Even Galaxy S5, Note 3, Note 4 has the same problem of "purple Smearing in dark room at low brightness".
Its basically a technological problem of Diamond Pentile matrix used in these phones Models.
Lets hope it would be rectified in the lolipop update.
But, for the time being You can use the application "SCREEN ADJUSTER" avilable for free in Play store.
Set the color options as-
System brightness: Auto.
Options: Check the boxes for autostart on reboot & Hide notification.
Thats it, & go to system settings, application manager, screen adjuster, uncheck the show notification.

If you have battery issues when updated to 4.4.2, do the following: Go to developer options and then check: "Don't keep activities" that will improve battery life a LOT

Also lollipop will fix these issues as the interface is white and smearing happens when there is some color on black.
jerryjose93, 01 Jan 2015Guys i have beem using s4 since it released its great phone when i used it ..brought for 40000... moreG3 is a terrible phone. It overheats, the battery is pathetic and the screen has poor contrast ratio. Even G2 is better than G3.
Go with S4. It's old but reliable. Did you notice why G3's prices slashed down so much. That's because it's not a very great phone.
jerryjose93, 01 Jan 2015Im having the normal s4..is there in diff in black edition and this ?The black edition has a different back cover. That's about it. Change the back cover and your normal S4 is the black edition and black edition becomes normal one.
farrukh , 01 Jan 2015is the samsung S4 I9500 model a 4G phone also as in the speed category LTE category is mentioned? i9500 is 3G only. i9505 is LTE.
danny, 01 Jan 2015hey darkgamer should i buy s4 now or i should wait for s6 to make slash the s4 price more downSee, this phone is good. But it's outdated now. I do not recommend this anymore.
Look at your budget and extend it slightly to get s5 or HTC E8. If you can't afford them, then go for S4 now as I don't think prices are going to be cut down further. But stocks can run out.
is the samsung S4 I9500 model a 4G phone also as in the speed category LTE category is mentioned?
