If you want to see screws, open the battery door and see.
Have a nice day
This goes out to anyone looking forward to buying this phone, whether new or used. I have the GT-I9500 version. I forbid you, do not buy! Its battery life is pure crap!!!! It has all the bells and whistles but you can't use because it woun't last you an hour. I previously had a galaxy note 2 which I regret much why I gave it away for this piece of shit. The difference between this in terms of practical performance in day to day use is negligible, actually note 2 is much better because it has a big real screen estate and its battery will last you a life time! If wish to buy a samsung flagship but you don't have the cash to go for a note 3, just get a note 2 and thank me later, do note dare venture into galaxy s lineup coz you will cry!

Well, I got my Samsung S4 last year in July and I was pretty happy with it because it was my first touch screen phone. Now...I just think it was a total and complete waste of money and happiness. It lags quite a lot when you open certain applications, especially for me it's the camera and the gallery. My phone is currently running of the kit kat 4.4.2 software and it has improved but it still needs a lot of work. The browser doesn't always work, it freezes a lot, if it is connected to a weak wi-Fi signal, it just disconnects itself every time you open an application that does require wi-Fi. The phone is quite slow for a smart phone and it had some problems with the predictive text but now its better...I think. It does not allow you to assign a picture to any of your contacts but yourself which is really stupid...The chrome bezel starts chipping after a while, the screen, which is highly saturated and gives off unrealistic colors takes 80% of the battery when battery has been used for 12 hours. It requires too many updates. In general, it just sucks. I hope you don't make the same mistake I made
AnonD-297922, 24 Aug 2014I have s4 with octacore chipset.why it can't play 4k videos? I thought cortex A15 can handle it.It's not upto CPU.
There is a hardware block in the SoC named as Codec which means code and decode.
This is the part which dies all of the encoding and decoding functions.
The codec in exynos 5410 only supports upto 1080p@30fps or 720p@120 fps.
The snapdragon 600 has upto 1080p@30fps or 720p@60fps.
Snapdragon 800/801 upto 4k@30 fps, 1080p@60fps and 720p@120fps.
Exynos 5422 has the same codec as snapdragon 800.
These all are H.264 codecs. The new SoCs like exynos 5430 ( used in galaxy alpha) or snapdragon 805 use h.265 for 1080p and h.264 for 4k. The upcoming SoCs like exynos 5433 and snapdragon 810 will have H.265 for both 1080p and 4k.
H.265 has more than 2 times efficiency of decoding/encoding than h.264 and also records in much less size with same quality.
It's not related to the processor but the codec
Hope you found this useful.
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2014Evek 4k video woint work with snapdragon 600 too i guess ?S600 also can't handle 4k.
