parv, 27 May 2014S4 or note 3 neo ? confused.....Being the latest release one can opt for note3 rather than going for s4 or may go for s5.
tammy, 26 May 2014Hi ru sure u can move apps and games to sd card. I wana buy this for hd games which normally g... moreOnly app data can be moved to sd card, not game data. So your hd games will be in internal storage only. Let's say you have 1.5 GB game out of which 200 MB is app and 1.3 GB is game data. Then that 200 MB can be moved to SD card but not the game data.
The feature that you are asking for can only be done after you root an android phone.
So if you wish to only play HD games on this phone, either buy the 32 GB version of this phone or root the 16 GB version.
You have the 9 GB just for apps. So i think that's enough. All your music, videos, movies and files will reside in sd card. Moreover, there's the new kitkat update coming which will bring the new touchwiz of s5 which has 11.5 GB free, so i think then we'll have sufficient space..
Have a nice day. BTW if you care so much about games then better buy a 32 GB nexus 5.
Nick , 26 May 2014From what you say, it's better to update a phone that is otherwise working perfectly through F... moreThat isn't possible. As that file is the same as it was in previous firmware.
To make you better understand let's say that our firmware 1 ( previous one) had 100 files.
In the firmware 2( newer one), there are 102 files in which 80 are same, 20 are changed and 1 is a new file.
So in OTA, we'll just get the 21 files which are changed or new. In kies however, you'll get all 101 files.
So, if a file was good initially and isn't available in OTA, it's unchanged as it is in those 80 files. So a good working file which isn't available in OTA won't be corrupted.
Let's say you got a virus in one of those 80 files, then you can't remove through OTA, you have to use kies and a clean wipe.
So in any way, kies is better than OTA or FOTA, whichever you prefer.
Have a nice day

Hope it will be resolved in upcoming update.

guys my s4 heats up too much and the battery aint lasting that long even after switching on powers saver and disabling/killing unnecesary apps....any technical advice will be highly appreciated

The thing is, kies down... moreFrom what you say, it's better to update a phone that is otherwise working perfectly through FOTA only. For in the process of replacing every firmware file, as it happens using Kies, it is quite possible that a previously good file gets replaced with a buggy one that may download with new firmware.
tammy , 26 May 2014Thanks darkgamer.. Can u tell me if the apps will be stored on phone memory or sd card or does... moreYes, it has an option for apps to move to sd card.
Regarding the camera clarity, it's mind blowing in daylight and the level of details rendered are amazing.
In the Night Time, the picture isn't so rosy. The pics come out very bad with lack of detail and dark in auto mode. To remedy this, you have 2 options: either enable auto night mode detection from the upper left corner or you go to night mode. In the Night mode, the images are good and much better than auto mode. You just have to keep your hand steady. Regarding Flash, this phone has one of the best flash and the images come very good in flash
have a nice day

Comparing s4 to grand 2 is an insult to s4. It doesn't have these issues. It only heats up mildly which all phones do. And battery backup is great.
If you have voice between these 3 phones, choose s4 without even thinking.
Have a nice day

In such situations where you can't turn off the phone you have 2 choices: either remove the battery and then reinsert and turn on the phone or you press power button along with volume down key. This combination of power button and volume down key force shuts down the system.
Have a nice day

connect the phone to PC.
open the phone folder
Go to SD card
Copy the folder
Paste in computer
When done, remove the s4 from pc and now insert 64 gb card in s4.
Connect to pc again
Copy the images from pc
Paste in the sd card folder
And VOILA, you're done.
P.S.: you can also do this via a card reader if you have one. Just connect the sd card directly and do the same procedure.
Have a nice day
