Every human have different attitude. One man see black spot in moon and another moonlight. Be happy and enjoy s4
Can anyone explain me with strong reasons that what should i buy s4(i9500),s4(i9505),iphone(4s) or samsung galaxy tab 2 10.2 pls explain me???
I think I can get the Samsung Galaxy S4 but I wish I could afford that but someday
Well firstly am a girl. I lost patience with the phone. The picture quality of the 12mp camera was not as good as I expected it to be. It doesn't have predictive text in the keyboard that I really cant do without and I don't like downloading 3rd party apps for something as basic as keyboard. And I literally had almost all the apps n gimmicks turned off, it was annoying me.
Xperia doesn't have great battery life but its better. I am on the phone all day checking mssg n mails, browsing, watching movies at night.. I get a good standby as well.. Like all night just about 7-8% battery drain.
I was thinking of going to the samsung service centre but then I thought samsung service centres in India! Better change the phone.. N another thing about samsung is that everything is hidden under layers, if you want to change certain settings you need to search so much to get to it. Not happening, smart phones are supposed to make life easier..
How many of you guys know that S4 GT-I9500 supports 5G wifi standards and UHS-1 High speed microSD cards? Many other smartphones out there don't have this feature.

You must have dis a software update and let the phone heat, lag and drain battery like crazy for 1 week or so and after it becomes a very stable and great phone( it happened to most of the people) also i was worried but after that now it doesn't heat up and Any phone will finish battery after 7 or 8 hrs of heavy use. No phone gives 10 hr on screen time. Infact battery life of xperia z is much worse than s4.
standby time is excellent 1 precent battery in 3 hrs on idle. I don't know how you messed up with your phone and why you didn't take expert advice.

Did you even read my whole comment and saw my comment about processoron page 8 or 9 or 10( the long one). You will get the idea about how much I know about mobile technology.
ok you own an s4. I can say by your comment that you know nothing about mobiles. super almond( lollll).its super amoled. its not octa core( read my comment on page 8 or 9) and I didn't specifically pointed on you but it was the other guy.
don't get me wrong but your comment doesn't make any sense at all. It's display is the best and miles ahead of s advance.
app loading times are excellent and the ui us much faster than s advance.
Ok I tell you octa core advantage. decode a 1080p 60fps video on s advance. It won't be able to play it. Or even run temple run 2 on high graphics( I had xperia u before which had same st erricsson novathor u8500 processor with mali 400mp gpu. It can't handle heavy games or tasks).
The camera is seriously the best(slmost) and bounds and leaps better than s3. You might be doing something wrong. Please check it.
Sorry if my comment hurted you.
sam58, 29 Aug 2013Hi shubham yadav.. Am planning to buy s4 but I want to knw few things frm u. How is the call q... moreI rarely get less than full signal in my area because of excellent network of airtel. so my experience shouldn't count. but I read on a site that i9500 has signal exceeding even iphone 5 which itself has a very good signal reception. About the call wuality you shouldn't care much more the sound is loud and clear. You can also configure that!!!!!!!!! by using adapt sound during a call.
personally I didn't find any problems one this issue. But I can only tell about i9500. I have no idea on i9505.
By the way thanks for asking.
I bought a samsung s4 first. Though technically its battery should last longer and it has a better processor n stuff so it should be smoother. But my experience with samsung has been so bad that I had to exchange my phone for an xperia because my budget wouldn't let me get the HTC one, which I should've bought initially itself coz in the end I ended up spending the same amount on 2 phones.
The battery life of s4 was really bad. Like in 7-8 hrs of heavy use it would reduce by 80%.. On standby it would drop by 20% every 2hrs.. I couldn't even get through a day.. Whats the point of all those features if you have to switch each one of them off to get through one day of use.. N s4 heats up like so bad.. It becomes really hot, I was worried that my phone would blow up.. N it lags and hangs alot.. specially in the browser.. Was not at all satisfied with the product..
Though xperia z is not the best, mine got scratched by one fall, that too a very lil fall, and the display is not the best but it definitely doesn't have issues like the s4.. Thank God for that..
I would still prefer the HTC one.. Coming from HTC one x..
How much time does it take to get fully charged? I mean from 0% to 100%, i am planning to switch to S4 from lumia 920.
kandasamy, 29 Aug 2013This phone annoyed me a lot. Its waste waste waste utter waste. So pls don't buy this phone a... moreOh Boy!!
U saved my life giving all these comments and letting me know on S4 rightly.
Now go have some sleep troller...
Hi shubham yadav.. Am planning to buy s4 but I want to knw few things frm u. How is the call quality and signal reception in s4. Bcoz Samsung hasn't been gud in terms of signal reception quality as far as I know. Pls do honest reply. . Thanks. .
There are some news about its very poor battery life, and heating problem. Mobile is heated up and even battery is heated up with some use. It is SO? can any user explain....?
kandasamy, 29 Aug 2013This phone annoyed me a lot. Its waste waste waste utter waste. So pls don't buy this phone a... mores4's camera is not 8mpx. it's 13 mp. lol you were caught red handed. You didnt even saw an s4 even on Internet or otherwise you would know at least some specs. looooooooooooool trooooooooolllllll.

shubham yadav, 28 Aug 2013totally agree with you dude. almost All the people who are complaining here are trolls and don... moreI am using s4 and I paid 34k for it. I am not enjoying to criticise it. Its camera quality is worse than s3. And when I open the contact it take a lot of time. So dont say anybody blind if you have no sense about mobile technology.
This phone annoyed me a lot. Its waste waste waste utter waste. So pls don't buy this phone and waste your money guys. The battery is really a bullshit. Then the performance waste. Don't waste your money in such a crap guys. I bought this phone last month and was disgusted a lot, recently i have sold it and purchased Nokia Lumia 920.its awesome while compared to this shit. Nokia Lumia 920 camera is really a monster. It has pure view technology in which low light images are sharper. But in this s4 images r not at all clear. It wonders me whether its really 8mp. Because the camera in S4 is like VGA. So pls Don't go 4 it guys trust me. Pls don't waste ur money lyk me.purchase Nokia Lumia or Sony r even motorola
scorpio, 29 Aug 2013What is your opinion of the HTC One compared to the S4. In my area (Australia) we have S4 1950... moreIt all depends. as a phone , i9505 is better than htc one in many aspects such as screen( better contrast, better blacks, better whites, more colour gamut, bigger screen, less power consumption) .
also i9505 has better processor and gpu( higher clock)
the camera quality is also better( just zoom in the photo of htc one and see how pixelated it becomes).
ergonomics( smaller phone than htc one while packing larger screen)
3 button layout(this becomes significant in the long run, just 2 buttons is like a pain in the ass). also the power button on htc one is awkwardly placed.
More features and sensors( can be put in a better use later via software updates.) is always good to have extra hardware.
On the flip side, htc one has a brilliant aluminium body, great speskers and a very simplistic ui.
There's no winner here. It's like what you want. If you are an advanced user and want a phone to perform you're tasks, s4 is for you. If you look for a great design, speakers and you are a basic user who likes minimalism and simplicity.
For a common man who isn't an advanced user, htc one is better but for an advanced user who wants more from a phone, s4 is better.
If it was i9500, I would clearly recommend it but for i9505, it's a tough call
by the way . Thanks for the compliment.
