Rs, 26 Mar 2014So w.p is also isolated like ios.what's the reason then you are moving to w.p. why not ios??m... moreWP is NOT isolated. It is just not customisable as Android, and some apps are still missing. But they have improved so much, that it intrigues me. I just want a stable ecosystem, that's all. Like it won't go kaput on me by saying some apps have Force Closed, a sudden reboot or a sudden pop up like your external SD has corrupted, please format it. I never needed to use more than 50 apps anyway, and I more or less see all the apps I need are available on Windows Phone.
That goes the software part. Now for hardware, Nokia Lumia series is basically no match for Samsung S series. I mean the latter is unbelievably fragile imo, I just don't like to put a case on on my phones, and that I had to do with my S2, Note 2 and now S4. Build quality is a huge factor for me.
There it goes.
Now about iOS, well as I said I don't wanna be anyone prisoner or slave. I will NOT install another software because I purchased a phone of some fruit company, yes I am talking about iTunes! I need a 1000$ phone to play Matroska out of the box, I need to to have a map which will not direct me to Indian ocean and find out the wreckage of that missing plane, I need a good music player, I need OLED display, and above all I need peace of mind. With iOS, I only got one thing, that half eaten logo at the back. Using the iPhone 5S for one week is like suffering in minus Fahrenheit naked. No thanks. And it would be like blowing my own trumpet, but money is the last thing I have to worry about.
PS : Dear Lord, this comment is needed to be approved. Really guys, get a life.

Just got time to check thru my phone today. During this process I noticed some things on my phone. Firstly, my phone RAM is just 1gig instead of the usual 2gig also the output of the camera isn't that impressive. Does that mean Samsung makes substandard products. Cos I don't know why I wouldn't get the value of my money.
Anyone else have this same experience?..... Plz share it.

AnonD-246266, 26 Mar 2014i didnt get new update on s4 in india..Try to look it up on Samsung Kies.. as OTA might not show up at times.
shubham yadav, 25 Mar 2014can you tell me, what exactly is the reason you bought s4. And what exactly is the problem you... moreActually my wife wanted to gift me a phone. she was like get the best phone you want. She was always in favour of buying S4. It was decided we will go together to buy myself a phone as my birthday present. Instead we go together she bought S4 for me a week before my BD to give me on BD. in the mean while I was doing my research LG G2 vs SGS4. I didn't know the phone was already bought :D ..
Well I m not facing as such any problem.. I have been busying now days at work so I m not using my phone to the fullest. heat up issue is there but its not an issue for me so far. I was expecting it will be chilled always but it do while using camera or any game or voice apps. my phone is 4.3. I heard kitkat drains battery faster so I m not updating my firmware.

Faster and Snappier? iOS again.
Can't believe I am saying this as a huge Apple hater! But that's unfortunately the truth.
However if you go the iPhone way prepare yourself to be a prisoner of Apple, forever.
I am moving to W.P next month anyway.
AnonD-89109, 26 Mar 2014Some apps of S5 have already been released.

What's your say? Anyways, when will we get the new S5 touchwiz, camera features and new apps. I don't want some new wallpapers and boot sound
have a nice day
I am fan of galaxy "S" series i had S-advance, S2, S3, and currently using S4. believe me the best phone was S2. No smart phone can match its durability i can bet upon that....S2 is quiet old tech now a days...i wish samsung should try to make powerful specs phone like s4 packed in rigid design of S2....i broke screen of my s4 twice in 6 months and end up paying Rs. 7000/- per replacement...so i suggest to go for s2 if you dont need to much powerful specs
There is a new firmware update released for Indian S4 i9500. It's on sammobile.
Other than bunch of new wallpapers, and a new boot up sound I don't see anything changed. So you might wanna save some band-with by not upgrading.
The newer version is XXUFNC1
