3- if you have a girlfriend - dont you wonna keep your GF private messages to you PRIVATE ?
sorry shubham yadav- your story of exchanging s4 /g2 with your father "quite opften " doesnot cut the butter - EVEN THOUGH your comments in general s4 g2 are factual .. PLEASE DONT BRING YOUR "FATHER" G2 in forums chitchats ..with respect..

First , let's decide b/w i9505 and i9500. I9500 is better every way you look at it. it has a much better cpu (40-50% faster), better camera( especially at night) as i9500 has a better camera sensor exmor RS over exmor R in i9505. i9500 also has better audio due to wolfson audio chip inside it.
Now we come to i9500 v/s g2. It's a very difficult choice to make. one is better in some way and other one is better in other way. You just answer the following questions.
1. What is the price of g2 and i9500 s4 in your country?
2. For how long do you plan to use your phone? 1 year, 2 years or any other
3. Do you game a lot??
4. What are your storage needs?? This means if you like to store movies or have a lot of music collection?
5. What are most important things you want from your phone?? Along battery life, great camera, great screen or any other.
6. Any other point you would like to say about which type of phone you want?
See, THERE IS NO OVERHEATING ISSUE IN S4, NEITHER IN 2013 MODELS NOR IN 2014 ONES. I have used a lot os s4 s and most of people who are reporting those issues either don't know to operate a phone or are trolls. First , you decide which phone you'll purchase. I'll tell you a way to eliminate heating then. You just forget about it for now.
Have a nice day
shubham yadav, 18 Mar 2014Press the menu button when you are in music app. Go to settings-> Music menu and then just ... moreAfter reading first 11 pages of this forum, I beleive that S4 I9500 has 2 major issues; 1 is heat up issue and another is battery drain issue. battery drain issue can be manageable but heating up thing can not be stopped. I also read i9505 forum on gsmarena, there i also found bunch of complains. while i read nexus 5 and lg g2 forums; instead of complains, i found many ppl admiring LG phones and recommending it to get it. and in Samsungs forum every guy is with issues.
I m now confuse; which phone shall i go for; i had narrow down my choices to S4 i9500, S4 i9505 or LG G2. LG was not my favourite but seeing good reviews of it is changing my preception about LG. Please advise. which phone shall i go for for an easy worriless life.
P.S i went to a market for survey, the shop keeper said S4 of 2014 doesnt have heatup issue. but in the same forum i read a guy bought his phone last week and he also had heatup issues :/
Does galaxy s4 heats up so badly ? does it have heating issue even for those product that are manufactured in 2014 ?

i wanna purchase a phone which can be useable atleast for 3 years

I not really recommended you guyz to update your s4 from jellybean 4.3 to the latest android kitkat 4.4.2 (which i downloaded OTA recently) because there were a mere minor improvement that not attractive at all. Your phone is a bit slower,battery and time indicator turned to grey and of course the colour is lame. To get fully recharged its a bit time consuming and the rule of time is that plz turned off your mobile data and wifi connection before recharging to get your phone fully recharged as normal BUT thanks for the android kitkat 4.4.2. I got a new smooth web surfing just with EDGE connectivity experienced which its a not working at all with jellybean 4.2.2 and 4.3... i can even playing youtube with EDGE ( and of course far lesser than 1.0 Mbps)....Android kitkat is better for smooth and web browsing if your telco provides unstable broadband in your area and the major setback is tht is that with s4 and android kitkat, your battery will drained quickly yes of course. Turned off wifi and mobile data may prevent the drainage issues
