whatever the power usage is, something must using the battery
from all av seen, i do realize that s4 is the best phone one can have,i would like to buy it but i don't know where to find it

who ever in pakisan is thinking to buy s4 i must say that he or she should atleast think once i was also vey very excited before buyng ths s4 but if u want extra smart features like air view gestures infrared bkaster for controlling tv etc thn go for it but battrey life is very bad but if u dont want these extra sensors nd want a good phone with best camera nd battery backup nd gaming then go for voice v70 nd yes i am recommending voice v 70 not any other version although there is v75 nd some othe up models but i dont think they are good like v70 i use it with full brightness nd use it for all purpose surfing gaming messaging nd it lasts easily a day same is not case with my s4 which lasts for few hours evenn on low brightness.i am also thinking to sell my s4 nd use my voice if i dont get solution for battery life cux if i have to switch off all its smart features nd turn its brightness to lowest thn why the hell i dont buy nokia 1616... -_- s4 screen or graphics is definitely much much bwetter nd brighter than v 70 but battery timing.......
shubham yadav, 04 Apr 2014According to your budget, s4 is far better than any other phone available. Don't hesitate. As ... moreto be very very honest i think that samsung is now not fair with their customer cux here in pakistan we have a brand voice which is new mobile brand i have a v70 too its battery backup is far far better than s4 of mine nd with 1gb ram it runs all games very smoothly no single lag or frame drop i ever noticed on it.it also have a 13mp camera like s4 have.....very sadly saying it is almost equal in pik quality of s4...i bought s4 cux i knew it would be the best but now i am thnking i have done a mistake s4 with 2600 mah battery nd that voice v70 with 2300 mah still it has much much beter battery timing than s4.....nd it cost 20000 in pakistan pinpack nd s4 is still in 50s range with warranty nd without warranty its in 42 or 43

kartik00003, 03 Apr 2014latest kitkat update for S4 is 86mb but why does it take much larger data via kies to update??Hi Kartik,
After lot of googling, I found that if you are downloading update via wi-fi or 3G connection, it downloads only shown package size which is generally in MBs whereas if you updating through Kies, it downloads entire package file which if u notice is more than 1GB. Try to do OTA (over the air) update.
Hanuri, 04 Apr 2014Hi Shubham i've given the details thank u very much for your help.

And i don't have them. I earlier did but found a way to get rid of heating and heating causes battery drain. So either you have both heating and battery drain or none of them.
Go for s4, it's far better than moto x or note 2.
Have a nice day

Which country you live in?
Chennai , India
What budget you have?
Upto 30000 i can afford
What version is available in your country?
What other options are you considering?
Moto X , Note 2 and S4
I am Specially more concerned about S4's Heating issue and call dropping issues. Even i'd felt that heating issue in demo mobile in smart cafe
Suraj10685, 03 Apr 2014hows the battery backup of S4??? I'm using Note2 now. Will it be good decision to upgrade to S4??Stay with the note 2. Not worth it
kartik00003, 03 Apr 2014latest kitkat update for S4 is 86mb but why does it take much larger data via kies to update??As with kies, you download the full firmware instead of just the updated libraries. So it's always around 1.5 GB. but its better as it replaces any malware or bad code that might be in your firmware.
Have a nice day

Thinking to stick with S4 after going through your review. G2 is also a good mobile but all look down up on LG in our area!
To talk of my Nokia 808...... Since 2004, I had purchased 10 Nokia phones. Most of them are N series. But hadn't sold them away! All are still in great working condition! They just lie down in my show case! I have the last Symbian AlphaNumaric keypad phone! and bought this N808, 41mp Pureview, the last touch Symbian phone! It's a few months old. Looks brand new! Sorry Mr. Subham Yadhav. If at all I decide to sell, you will be definitely get it!
