Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013Which is better Z1 or S4?z1 is not released yet so can't say anything about it. But most probably it'll be better than s4 as it's released later, has a better chipset, camera and is waterproof too. But wait for the gsmarena review before making any conclusion.
sagardeswal, 11 Sep 2013Only one thing is good about this phone...its battery life. otherwise it is THE WORST smartpho... moreDon't lie to people. Samsung s4 is greatest phone ever. Heats up ? Do you think only samsung suffer with heats? All of smart phone is the same. Android phone all laggy bro.
Nexus 64 bit, 11 Sep 2013So sad that Samsung not going to upgrade S4 Exyonse 5410 to work with full 8 cores only Exyons... moreAs of now Samsung has introduced Exynos 5 5420 which 8 cores completely work simultaneously. And now samsung is working on Exynos 5 5410 to achieve the same. So most probebly we will get result with Android 4.3 update for S4.

Best phone I've had. super fast, battery life about 36-48hrs of heavy usage - super fir a modern smartphone.
Would like to have a better cam but don't care actually, I'm not a photographer)
p.s. I use cyanogenmod. The stock firmware is really laggy
AnonD-138490, 11 Sep 2013Nothing happens like that with me. I traded my note 2 for it and ni regrets. I am on latest fi... morei really liked ur view, i was never thinking of leaving my note 2 untill some problems occurred and i left it. i went for s4, it is so beautiful and amazing as 130 gms with full hd 5 inch screen is awesome, colours are better. battery is amazing, i agree it give 36 hrs batter for normal daily all time 3g scenario.
sagardeswal, 11 Sep 2013Only one thing is good about this phone...its battery life. otherwise it is THE WORST smartpho... moresagardeshwal- your below expectations experiences with your s4 make negative reading .. may we humbly suggest- 1- uninstall any apps you feel are not necessary for you .. 2- see if that helps any lagging .. 3- factory reset if necessary after backing up essential data .. 4- connect to kies via usb cable .. please do tell if that helps .
heating etc is not specific to s4.. sony htc suffer same .
make friends with a good samsung service center tech guy to make avail of under warranty issues .. dont give up ..keep trying since you have now got s4 -if you cannot get your money back ..
btw- one self appointed s4 guru -SHUBHAM YADAV n anather FREEFALLER samsung fanboy - very quiet ..we are concerned about their welfares .. they would surely give you STRONG ADVICE .. cheers..
Samsung Galaxy S4 Buyers Ultimate Guide. You can download this book for free now. I bought it and it helped me a lot.
Only one thing is good about this phone...its battery life. otherwise it is THE WORST smartphone i've ever used...heats up toooooo much, very laggy and slow, even the clicked pics take 4-5 seconds to get clearer, very laggy flash when used as a torch, most of the apps have crashed atleast twice within 1 month, just sold it away and bought htc one...and the worst thing is its plastic body which does not feel good...ill check out htc one now, atleast should be better than s4...pls dont buy...
I bought s4 last month itself. I think it is the best android phone selling in the market, good sensors, good camera, good amoled screen, good battery life. Till now it didnt face any problems, i have many games in it. It heated very little while downloading apps, not like everybody is saying that it hand burns while downloading . So, if you have money so buy s4, or go with s3, because s3 is also very good phone
hey plz help me that is this mobile have a processor of core i8 plz rply fast on my gmail id plz help: email@example.com
So sad that Samsung not going to upgrade S4 Exyonse 5410 to work with full 8 cores only Exyonse 5420.
FANBOYS n TROLLERS .. READ gsmarena posting rules >>>> and bottomline in bold--POST YOUR OPINION ABOUT SAMSUNG I9500 GALAXY S4..
-heating upto handhot -yes- in common with sony etc n other brands 2013 models -- cannot be denied -- solutions ? -
-battery use- drainages fast - but S4 has HIGH battery endurance rating compared to sony z or htc 1..read gsmarena reviews ..
-N first line of gsmarena posting rules-- be polite and use commonsense..
-new models every year.. take your pick .
no heating issue is there as thats normal with octacore processors. it doesnt heat up so high that u need to bother. 13MP super shooter best quality, 1080P screen, brilliant sensors, compact design, what else u need, infact who else give u these features altogether. any one thinking to buy a phone go for S4. it justifies ur money. again i say
a stupid camera and pathetic screen of xperia Z with low profile chipset is not a good choice.
4MP low quality camera, a very OK screen and no distinctive feature of HTC one is also not worth spending that much of money.
Battery life is very good as compare to any other phone in the market except note 2. if u keep ur mobile data off then u can use it for two days with normal use, 24 hours for moderate use and for higher usage u stay powered nearly whole day.
Nothing happens like that with me. I traded my note 2 for it and ni regrets. I am on latest firmware BMG5 and no issue at all. As mentioned before that it takes no more than one hour and 45 min to fully charge and lasts in 35+ hours with moderate and little heavy usage playing games etc. Note 2 takes nearly double time to charge approximately 3 hours to charge battery.
I never felt comfortable with note 2 even I am 6+ feet tall and having big hands. That's why I did this. I know people is saying that you can't go back to a smaller screen after using 5.5" screen of GN2. But as I understand it is just a hype. We can say sheep racing.
I think 5" screen is enough for phone and now It easily fit in small pockets and more powerful than GN2. It is equal to GN3. ONLY small things are here and there. Also I know those GN1, GN2 AND GN3 ARE phablets not just phones. If I choose phablet than there is always a feeling that It is too big and I need a phone. Because sometimes it just can't fit in pocket and a big hesitation to pull it out from the pocket.
However GN2 is really very slim like S4 But as we need cases for them. The s4 is still comfortable in case but GN2 was even huge in case.
Also my brother replaced his note 2 with Galaxy s3 for the same reason.
