raj, 18 May 2014No don't buy samsung products go for lg g2 it is far much better than this dustbin s4. I hv us... moreI own both the s4 and g2 and both are EQUALLY GOOD DEVICES. Both have equal cameras which are equally good in daylight, g2 is slightly better in low light while s4 us slightly better at HDR and panoramas.
Regarding screen s4 is better. Have you ever tried movie mode in s4. It's as natural as an LCD. And the IPS panel of lg g2 is a saturated panel. So please don't use artificial argument here. For a detailed comparison, read this link:

Samsung isn't an idiot and s4 isn't crap in camera and screen. In camera, both of the devices are exactly equal and capture amazing amount of detail. The g2 us slightly better in night and s4 pulls in HDR and panoramas.
Regarding screens, you can't know more than me. I am an expert in this subject. The LG G2 has a great and natural screen but is not accurate. It boosts the saturation to look punchy and uses a logarithmic scale of saturation instead of linear. It looks good nevertheless. The s4 can have more accurate and natural screen in movie mode. Just go to settings > display > screen mode and choose movie mode and you gave natural colours.

have a nice day
arpit, 18 May 2014Before commenting any thing about xperia device go and see the user reviews of s4 all r saying... moreDude,what are you doing in this forum??Go & post all the goodies about Xperia Z in the Sony forum,no offense though.
My galaxy s4 is hanging too much. I submitted s4 on 13 may in service centre and they returned me on 17 may but till now the problem is not rectified. Pls help
AnonD-265087, 19 May 2014Guys do you approve that moto e is better that Samsung Galasy S4 bec. moto e is claiming that ... moreMy phone doesn't even take those times in doing these things. So this is simply impossible. My camera takes less than 1 sec to open. So moto e should open the camera in -0.7 sec. That's amazing.
And PLEASE stop these fanboy fights here. I own a G2 and s4 and they are both great and EQUALLY good devices. And to those xperia fan arpit. Why don't you see some facts about your beloved xperia z in this link:
Guys do you approve that moto e is better that Samsung Galasy S4 bec. moto e is claiming that their moto e is better than S4; Lols
Performance – Faster In Day to Day Tasks Than A Galaxy S4
Delve more deeply into what powers the Moto E and you will find a dual core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with Adreno 302 graphics. This won’t play the latest cutting edge 3D shooters, but is again a major step up from the competition. Most crucial is performance when navigating the operating system and surfing with the web browser is fast and smooth. In fact Motorola has a few stats worth bragging about when it comes to everyday tasks.
Compared to a Samsung Galaxy S4, Motorola claims the Moto E is:
1.1 seconds faster opening the phone to answer or make calls
0.9 seconds faster opening the browser
0.4 seconds faster returning to the home screen
1.7 seconds faster opening the camera.
Admittedly Samsung gets a lot of abuse for the lag on even its high end phones due to its extensive remodelling of Android with its TouchWiz user interface and custom apps, but Motorola sticks the knife in as the Moto E benefits from simply using stock Android 4.4 KitKat. Motorola also guarantees Moto E owners an upgrade to the next version of Android (5.0). Given it updated the Moto X and G to KitKat just 19 days after it came out, the company has a great track record here.
Note: the Moto E doesn’t have the Google Now Launcher homescreen (that is currently only available to Nexus and Google Play edition devices) but it can be easily enabled with this simple hack.

Just want to check is this batte... moreAs far as you are concerned with heaying my friend powerful processors are always hot thats why we have fans in pcs right...and if your hands are too much sensitive to handle this heat then my suggestion would be that you dont go gor any high end device please..its a normal logic and not a problem...upto 100°c heat is normal working limit of poweefull cell processors...in summer its a bit problem but in winters you will hardly notice it.

Samsung offers the best after sale service in india especially for its high end cell phones. Keep your tracks right please...
Chill out guys..its a forum not a wrestling arena. Change is constant, nothing is permanent. So go for any mobile u want. You will use it for 2 to 3 years at maximum if u are a gadget freak. Keep it simple silly ;-) the companies don't pay you for publicity. So just chill coz ur lifetime is enough to use all the cells.

And battery drain occurs due to heating. So either you'll have both problems or none of them.
Don't worry, you can fix them pretty easily. If you're eyeing the handset, go for it. You'll not regret it.
Have a nice day
[deleted post]See, this is i9500 forum which doesn't support 4g or LTE. I think you should go to i9505 s4 forum. So I have no clue about that. And that mac os thing. I don't own a mac but you should be fine with wifi hotspot in phone. If that is an issue, that's apple's fault of not integrating mac with Android.
Regarding the network issue, the phone has an excellent reception and astounding sound clarity once you enable adapt sound and I didn't notice any of the issue you mentioned during my 1 year. The phone has strong reception and manual search works fine. About the HD voice I have no idea but that's a feature of network and that is network dependent. So how can it be disabled in software and why?
Have a nice day. I am shubham and now darkgamer. So please call me by this name.
