this is very good mobile for all things
but charging is problem whenever using internet
remaing options is good
plz any one tell me what is the different and Problems on Galaxy S4 2nd quality Version ?
Overall a smoother and fluid experience than 4.3, gallery opens much faster, as well as camera. UI responsiveness is better than before. But as I said hardware acceleration seems to be broken on some apps, especially those which need access to internet, thus you'll notice stuttering and jitter on some apps, which is really frustrating to be honest.
sugiomike, 02 Nov 2013I just brought s4 but when i insert my SIM card it a error showing no sim card.Dear sugiomike, your SIM may not have cut properly that's why it is not detecting tg sim, have it cut again the same problem persisted with me.

ithehappy, 02 Nov 2013Lol, you are as experienced as me, if not more. And you can just read about Odin. It's Samsung... moreYou didn't read my comment properly. I just said you were more experienced about Odin as you have used it. So i wasn't the proper person for answering this. And I know some stuff about ODIN. You are right but it has to be handled with care.
have a good day

ivans424, 30 Oct 2013Saurabh it could because of SD card too. Since android galaxy phones support an external SD ca... moreNo mate it's not about SD card. You will only notice slowness if the SD card is Class 4 or less, and even that when you are watching a video from it, possibly 720p etc, otherwise you won't notice it. You can just remove the SD card just to see for yourself. Anyway, with 4.3 the gallery is at least 50% faster, as well as the camera opening. Great, just wish the H/W acceleration wasn't broken on other apps, I am confident it will be fixed, otherwise 4.3 is a great update.
NO, you will NOT void warranty by using Odin. Samsung Service Center uses Odin, it's their own flashing application.
saumik, 30 Oct 2013I have updated to 4.3 Jelly Bean. And it is missing the most awaited feature of Restricted Pr... moreI am sorry but what's restricted feature? With 4.3 Samsung did introduce KNOX, I am sure you know that?
shubham yadav, 30 Oct 2013I didn't use odin in my life, but I think it doesn't void it as you are using the official rom... moreLol, you are as experienced as me, if not more. And you can just read about Odin. It's Samsung's software, they use in the SC, but never will tell us. Thanks to Google, nothing is hidden nowadays.
I am Saurav Ghosh btw, inputting from desktop.
Bob, 31 Oct 2013How do i down odin and install on my s4 19502 so i could get update 4.3?Don't know if GSMArena will keep this link or not, (kindly see what I am attaching here if you wanna remove it!)
Odin is Samsung's own software!
Ghost, 31 Oct 2013HI
I have been using this phone for 2 months now..
issues that cant be resolved:
1) whe... moreYeah, I faced that issue too, while I was talking with my friend my ear turned....what was it....oh yeah Green....
Get outta here.
schroede, 01 Nov 2013why dont these fones have radio in them? Why does most of the phone have radio in them?
dani, 31 Oct 2013Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15 & quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7?
it means this phone has two q... moreYeah, Big cores and little cores, quad Big core, which are active most of the time, quad little cores, which are NOT active unless there's a need.
So this is NOT a true Octa core device, I am sure you know that already.
Brad, 01 Nov 2013I want the phone to vibrate when I get a text. all I can get it to do is that annoying ring.@ Brad
Open the messaging app, press the left soft button, and select Settings. Scroll down to 'Notification settings' and tick 'Vibrate' ON.
All the people wanting to download the 4.3 software,be very careful,it took me over 5 hours to get it download onto my S4,an then when getting it finally installed onto my phone,it just stopped,so had to do a emergency firewall upgrade,an that to another 3 hours to finally get 4.3 fully installed on to my phone,so be very patient installing 4.3 or you might end up with your phone damaged
