Hi i have just bought a Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4, i am concern about the fact that it might be a fake; since i was told that the are demos. The reason for my concern it that it was very cheap and it doesn't have the apps that i see on other S4's. My question is, how can you tell if its a fake or not and what are the default apps that comes with the S4.

But do it with a reputed Samsung Service Stn
sudesh, 12 Oct 2013battery drains out very fast even when wi fi is disabled and no music is playing. phone heats ... moreNo it does not get hot,plus if its not to your satisfaction why don't you return it or if you think its faulty do something about it.
I think a lot of trolls on here if I have a faulty phone my brain automatically tells me to get its sorted out..Anyhow 100 degrees is cool for electronics .How come out of millions of users just afew get trouble with their phone and they are the ones saying"wasted my money" or "I have spent loads on this phone and its not working"..For goodness sake use your brains and get it sorted no one else is have all these troubles..
Another big bugbear is they should not be selling these smartphones to general public,,sometimes folm do not back up data then format memory card to see if that's trouble..Most just take it out another smartphone and stick it in new phone..
Then their is rogue apps but no one thinks to try things out they just rubbish the phone..Thats why if you do not know what you are doing you should not be buying a smartfone.

Anonymous, 10 Oct 2013rooting shall cancel warranty ..rooting must be done with care by tech knowhow ..hope u agree .. Rooting is a ten seconds process, even an idiot can do that. Yes, it'll void warranty because Triangle Away doesn't work with S4, but who cares? In three four years is using Android I've to opt for warranty for only once, not rooting the device for warranty is beyond me and ridiculous.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2013how many mAH does the batterry have? this is very important...2600 mAh. It's written right there at the spec page, bother to give it a read?
ivans424, 11 Oct 2013have u rooted your s4?Within 6 hours from getting the device.
battery drains out very fast even when wi fi is disabled and no music is playing. phone heats up very very fast and generally remains near 36 degree centigrade and gors upto40 41.
it becomes difficult to hold it in your hands.
feel cheated of 40thousand rupees.

I bought a Galaxy S4 about two months ago. It was working fine until last week, when it started restarting automatically.It happened for the first time when my little son was playing candy crush with it. It just restarted and kept restarting over and over again. Finally, I could use my phone. It happened once more when I set a live wallpaper. So I thought maybe the problem is with graphics, animation or something. But then again, it happened when I was just scrolling the pages. My phone just kept restarting, the Samsung logo showed up and then it restarted again. Another odd thing is that when it turns on after restarting, the batter percentage is reduced to 0%, although it was 80% before getting shut down.So I decided to reset my phone to factory settings. But it didn't help as well! but the problem is not solved.Do you know why this is happening? Have you experienced the same problem?
Ive had the S4 for a month now, it is fantastic, it out performs all of my friends phones, its so quick and truly easy to use. I had the original Galaxy S and loved it and decided to go for one of Samsungs competitors because i thought they were offering a better phone, i was wrong and have since had the S3, whilst the S4 is not hugely different they have refined it down to every detail and by doing so have blown everything out of the water. the accessory options are brilliant, better than any other manufacture, and this really counts because my previous brand of phone had almost no extras that could be bought.
pogz112, 10 Oct 2013+ and don't forget she's a super plastiki built design ... ahihihi!!!Samsung is doing right thing to make mobile in plastic body. Aluminum body always have more danger to dent and scratches.

Anonymous, 10 Oct 2013U HAVE CHANGED UR IP ADDRESS -- internet cafe kid ? whats next for u ? new name different ip A... moreNow enough of your disrespect to Shubham yadav, he may be a kid or young but he certainly talks with maturity at least more than you. All you know is attack and castigate the guy, he is doing a great job here helping out some confused s4 users. Another thing, the guy is not competing with you so you have nothing good to say, why not just pass and not say anything at all? You are really an annoying old man who only wants to piss off ppl. You don't even have a name.
