Do you advice me to buy this phone? What are the major problems of this phone? Please help me
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2013Hello, I bought Samsung Galaxy S4 cell phone in 13.08.2013. It is guaranteed with Genpa ... moresorry to hear about it mate...i agree with u, this happened to me as well my s4 fell from my back pocket to floor about 2 to 3 feet high and all the steel looking plastic frame around the phone got dents... i was afraid as the glass was visible from those dents and could be cracked next time so i sold it in the market...its really a fragile phone.. i saw many growing forums at this topic.... samsung has earned much respect from its low priced and high features phones..but now they are cashing it by cheating their customers....see whats the use of plastic if ur phone screen is still weak...and other day samsung CEO put a statement that they use plastic in their all phones cause it is easy and less time consuming to make the phones and to increase the supply in the market....i dont think he has any idea about customer satisfaction..... check this thread.....http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2287882
The Xperia Z1 is Sony's second device we meet running on the Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 800 chipset.
It is powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Krait 400 processor, with Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM.
The Krait 400 processor clocked at 2.2GHz (2.15GHz according to GeekBench) is among the fastest processors on the market, second to only the LG G2 (2.26GHz) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (2.3GHz).
[deleted post]I dont know when they give the 15% back. But yes the price comes out to be 35×××. And its available only for this month. No free stuffs from Samsung stores. But it's worth it. This is if your in india. I don't know about other countries
yeah baby!, 27 Sep 2013@shubbam hi! thanks by the way for the info, im asking bcoz the there are version of s4 that h... morebasically there are two major versions of s4, the i9500 and i9505. i9500 is the exynos octa version and i9505 is the snapdragon one. now you are going to know much more about them.
the i9505 uses a 1.9 ghz quad core snapdragon 600 processor and they are called krait 300. actually never go by the clock speed and no. of cores as they don't matter. Only the architecture matters. krait 300 is a very power efficient and powerful architecture and hence the i9505 is one I'd the fastest and long battery phone in Market.
The i9500 is much more complex. It applies arm's big.little technology and hence has a total of 8 cores in 4+4 clusters. actually first 4 are cortex a7 at 1.2 ghz(little) and last 4 are cortex a15 at 1.6 ghz(big) . the implementation is that depending on need, only one cluster, a7 or a15 is active at a time. hence only 4 cores at a time making the octa essentially a quad core @max. 1.6ghz. now, the cortex a7 architecture of arm is the most energy efficient architecture ever made and hence when they run, your phone uses very little power and hence is saving a lot of battery . but cortex a7 at 1.2 ghz quad core is very weak and it cant handle smoothly in games and performance demanding tasks. For that reason have cortex a15, the most powerful but the most inefficient architecture ever made. the a15 kicks when the demand is high as in demanding tasks like slow mo videos, games etc. the cortex a15 at 1.6 ghz is also 4 or 5 times more powerful than cortex a7 at 1.2 ghz, both being quad core.
comparing these 2 variants in cpu power of in geekbench 3, the scores are:
hence the cortex a15 at 1.6 ghz is much more powerful than krait300 at 1.9 ghz.
Therefore, performance: a15> krait300> a7
power efficient: cortex a7 > krait300> a15
hence by managing perfect balance between power and battery, the i9500 has a great processor.
They also have a few other differences. They are:
camera: the i9500 has a better sensor and hence has significantly better photos: it has exmor rs sensor vs exmor r in i9505. i9500 also shoots 8x slow mo videos at 720p while i9505 can't do it due to worser processor
audio: i9500 has wolfson dac which is just great and much better than i9505.
the i9500 is also much smoother and never lags.
battery life is almost the same on both the phones.
i9505 had 4g lte which can be useful for some people. The i9500 is 3g only.
Have a nice day. If you want more info, just ask me. I will always reply.

Why are you still answering that clown? It was only a few days ago that you... moreok. This is the same troll that commented bad on my age and literally irritated me.
Actually his name is anonymous and a lot of anonymous have genuine doubts and problems. Sorry I responded to that. This troll should get out of here.
Have a nice day.
Open your camera and push capture button for some time your camera will capture 20 photo in one time and best will be selected. By try it

Why are you still answering that clown? It was only a few days ago that you stated you wouldn't reply to that Trolls comments again.
He's been trying to rile me on the i9505 forum but I just ignore him.
Every person on this planet HATES being ignored, and that is why he has started a personal crusade against me. He can rant all he likes, I won't reply and that infuriates him. I suggest you do the same.

look, I am not the type of guy who loves samsung or any particular brand. I openly criticize what's wrong. I believe in having an open mind and not going by brand. I have owned 3 smartphones and all are from different brands Samsung, htc and sony and also some nokia featurephones. and I believe in changing brands often as I see the phone and not the brand. my next phone will be most probably iphone as I think it's time to change os.
don't see me as a fanboy. This is a bad move by Samsung and it will surely have to remove this restriction. Otherwise the worst hit people will have to root their s4.
SAMSUNG sim lock by region- MOBILE COUNTRY CODE -we asked our network c/s for info .. we have s4 upgraded on 28 august .. c/s had network UNLOCKED our postpay handset for international travels .. CS say that samsung MCC LOCK shall be applied VIA all future updates ..means NO non-regional sims shall work in the handset . but this is samsung NEW policy -not of the network(s)..
shubham yadav -ur SILENCE on samsung SIM LOCKING BY REGIONS IS WORRYING ! whats up with u ? r u well ! our best wishes ..
androidnn, 27 Sep 2013I would like to know where I can find it at 450euros.just wait 2-3 weeks - then amazon ..
shubham yadav, 27 Sep 2013actually when its written 16 gb, that is for the whole phone. This means the free memory plus ... moreThanks shubham...
My s4 is working fine except restart problem when click gallery icon on camera. According to you s4 having this problem when this phone is launched. Need to update as per your suggesion. I will try to update my as soon as possible.... thanks anyway.
one more thing. Regarding android 4.3
I saw that android 4.3 UI looks what sony, micromax and karbonn etc mobile's have when I searched in google....but really I dont want such kind of UI...I like samsung UI..hence I moved from sony to samsung...
please tell me that whether samsung UI remains same or not?
honest answers from samsung now !!! would future updates to -as this week false security policy update lock s4 to mcc - mobile country code ? meaning you cannot use anather local sim from anather region during travels !! where is shubham yadav nd where is socalled freefallen ?
@shubbam hi! thanks by the way for the info, im asking bcoz the there are version of s4 that have 1.9 ghz for the quad core. . im just concerned, is there a big difference from 1.9 ghz in quadcore to 1.6 ghz in octacore? i dont really have any idea, im just looking at the numbers so, if you can explain it to me. i would really appreciate it, before i buy this phone. =)
