AnonD-78030, 22 Oct 2013Yes heating is reduced. wow that's great!! Finally updated to 4.3 .😅What are your impressions on new update.
Please share them as soon as possible.
Have a nice day.
Sach, 22 Oct 2013Friends you all have been discussing about update to 4.3 version, im a naive person dont know ... moreIf you can get s4 for around 30k, just go for it. But that's highly unlikely. If s4 is out of your budget, please have a look at xperia zr. It's a great phone in small dimensions with a great chipset, 13mp camera and is waterproof.
look, if you wait for 3 months or so, you will definitely get a better phone but if you go on this way, you will keep waiting forever as a new and better phone will be declared each 3-4 months.
Also you can see note 2 but I would prefer xperia zr.
Have a nice day.
Friends you all have been discussing about update to 4.3 version, im a naive person dont know much about technicalities, but can anyone suggest which is the best phone feature and speed wise around 30k to be bought. Or should i wait for sometime if anything new is to comeup.

its 2471. in comparison, lg g2(s800) gets around 2160.
antutu 4: 28872.
over all of these, the phone is blazing fast. The heating is completely gone. After doing benchmarks for 45 min, the back was only slight warm(not at all hot or uncomfortable).
have a nice day
Test It Before, 22 Oct 2013Every product must speak for itself although we have ignoramus folks. To those who are naive t... moreThese are exactly my thoughts dude. However i prefer galaxy s4 over both of these. These choices ultimately depend on the end user. A developer or advanced user or a geek will never buy an iphone but those who are new-bees to smartphne will prefer iphone 5s over any other phone due to simple and user-friendly minimalist interface and the raging speed with which the 5s opens apps.
Those who like capturing some photos and want infinite customization will prefer s4.
Those who want a great design and sound will prefer one.
have a nice day.
Every product must speak for itself although we have ignoramus folks. To those who are naive to make research: My wife is using iphone 5s and I'm using HTC One. if only you can go to store and play around this two phones. After that, what you'll choose will make you frolic and blissful.
IS THE 4.3 update being released in a phase manner within INDIA also?? i am in PUNJAB and yet both via OTA and KIES it shows latest updates installed,no sign of 4.3 :((
after a use of sometime its battery will swollen and will be of no use... after spending such a amount its a disaster!!!!!!!

I also think the ram has done something butthere should be some other changes too.

Samsung were already ahead in this but software wasn't optimized to utilize it. It is now i guess. clock speed doesn't really matter much.
AnonD-78030, 21 Oct 2013Yeah...!! Thanks man.. The benchmarks have hugely improved. in quadrant i got 17030. That's one hell of a score and almost on par with snapdragon 800.
I just wanted to say this.
more benches coming soon in 30minutes.

In which country you live??
do you own an s4(if yes i9500 or i9505)
Have you really improved?? i just can't believe it!!
and about 4.3.1 i can't say much for now but see my reply to will. That will give you a glimpse.
Also get a name via logging in to a gsmarena account. That will really help a lot to recognize you. Please do it if you are really improved.

AnonD-78030, 21 Oct 2013Download quadrant standard and go in system info. The middle tab. Sorry for late reply. late reply?? Dude you were superfast. There is a bad news. that is opengl es 2.0 only in quadrant.
I am really upset on it. But I have heard that powervr sgx544mp3 supports open cl. If imagination gives us this in the future, that will crush opengl es 3.0 by a mile.
have a nice day
will, 21 Oct 2013but how was it?? is it a good update?
It's looking great upto now, The phone is blazing fast. It opens everything in sub-seconds. The colour reproduction is really improved and everything looks better and sharper. Reading mode is enabled. The camera app loads around 4 to 5 times faster(around 0.1 sec) and takes really better photos. The contact app bug is finally gone.
Sorry i can't say everything now as i haven't seen it enough. Will give you a complete review tomorrow covering all the aspects.
Have a nice day.
