shubham yadav, 15 Feb 2014you are totally wrong here. those cores in i9500 are cortex a15 which have a much more perform... moreright?, so explain why customers are experiencing a quicker battery drain and also battery issues. its all nice having big scores on paper but when it comes to actual usage its common sense (if you know anything about technology) that more cores will drain a battery quicker when they're all running at the same time. It was also a blog on this website a while back that samsung are looking to improve the functionality of the octo-core processor so that it only uses the relevant amount of cores needed for each application to prevent quicker battery drain like in the i9500. you just got educated... your welcome.

[deleted post]i9500 is the octa. it has 4 cores(cortex a7) at 1.2 GHz and 4 cores(cortex a15) at 1.6 GHz
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2014actually i9505 has a faster chip set, the i9500 is onlyclocked at 1.6ghz were i9505 is clocked... moreyou are totally wrong here. those cores in i9500 are cortex a15 which have a much more performance per clock.
for comparing actual speeds, lets look in geekbench 3 results, an i9505 scores around 1900 - 2000 whereas my i9500 scored 2471. and for battery drain, i9500 has 4 low power cortex a7 cores at 1.2 ghz. they work when load is less
It has preinstalled "bloatware" apps on it thats why the 16 gb appears to be 8 gb because of the "bloatware" takes up most of the space on it
Guys in my Samsung s4 i9500 it's total memory space shows just 8.94gb. But it's specifications shows 16gb. . Eventhough if system occupies as back up or cache it cant be occupying 7gb. Is it any fault in my mobile or every mob has the same. . Pl posts reply. .
I've query about its processor. Which version has octa core processor and how much it is clocked 1.6 Ghz or 1.9Ghz?
Shan, 14 Feb 2014yes i9500 is better than i9505. Because i9500 has Exynos 5 Octa 5410 processor. actually i9505 has a faster chip set, the i9500 is onlyclocked at 1.6ghz were i9505 is clocked at 1.9ghz, i9500 has more processors but with a lower speed and all your getting with that is a quicker battery drain and also an overheated battery due to all processors running at the same time. so i9505 is the beter handset
elmquist79, 13 Feb 2014So can u telling me, how to prevent sudden heating of this phone? battery heats up when CHINESE made battery strains .. sony had to withdraw 1 MILLION laptop batteries .. NON CHINESE QUALITY BATTERIES DONOT OVERHEAT ! can get warm. s4 has chinese battery .
