Specs are nothing my friend.
If you want a good device under 15k, mi3 is good. But it can't compete with s4.
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2014444 is minor bugs fix on 443 -as seen on nexus 7 2013 tablets..no magic .but s4 very unlikely ... moreS4 will get android 5.0. It's not key lime pie as the name will start from l. K is already over with kitkat.
S2 got till 4.2
S3 till 4.3
Note 2 till 4.4
S4 will be supported till the hardware permits and as we know, this is a beast.
Samsung tested the 4.4 kitkat on s3 after 2 years are over. The is no such policy. They support flagship till hardware permits. S4 us almost 3X powerful than note 2. It's sure to get 5.0 but I can't say about further.
sideey, 19 Jul 2014nd what about 4.4.4 update...??
will there be any changes??I don't think s4 will recieve android 4.4.4 as there is nothing new.
I don't know why people so much worry about updates. I haven't installed updates since months because this firmware is working great. A higher android version is not always better. 4.4.4 is just bug fixes and u don't have any bugs so even if it comes, I won't update.
Regarding the update schedule, I don't know as I don't work in Samsung.
If you want fast updates, go for nexus. If you want a better experience, go for s4.
444 is minor bugs fix on 443 -as seen on nexus 7 2013 tablets..no magic .but s4 very unlikely to get 5.0 lime pie due in early 2015 - 2013 s4 shall be out of date -2 yrs rule for updates by samsung .. other makes donot update after 1 yr after launch . apps shall need to be optimised which ANY CUSTOM ROMS CANNOT DO.. ALL MANUFACTURERS asvise strongly against custom roms-only for techies because simple mistake while installing custom rom can BRICK the phone DEAD USELESS FOR EVER .WARNING CLEARLY highlighted by all custom roms .
Jet Lee, 18 Jul 2014S4 is a Nice phone!! So happy to have it!!!Ya, you are right!! I love S4 too!!!
sideey, 19 Jul 2014around when......nd is it still worth buying...or should i go for nexus???
Around when??? Are you kidding me? It's not even released yet.
It's definitely better than nexus 5. But yeah, s4 is not the best phone. You can get better phones like htc m8, z2 or galaxy s5 if your budget permits.
darkgamer, 19 Jul 2014Surely around when......nd is it still worth buying...or should i go for nexus???

Upgrade to S5 just for the latest updates doesn't make any sense to me.By the way,enjoy your S5.

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2014S5 is a uglyi version of S4 with finger print and heart rate sensor, which is not so accurate ... moreanon- s5 is best ! ok ! read reviews ..inform yourself .why r u arguing unnecessarily for arguments sake ?
