ezzsteon, 23 Aug 2013which is better to buy the i9500 or the i9505There is not much difference. buy the one that is available in your region.
i9500 has better processor, gpu, camera(exmor rs sensor vs exmor r in i9505.), audio( wolfson dac)
i9505 has better battery life and dev support.

Engineer555, 23 Aug 2013 Add the screen and the FM Radio of HTC One to S4 and S4 would be the ideal phone to buy. add fm radio, ois and those boomsound speakers. not the small lcd unit. The super amoled is the best.
pk, 23 Aug 2013can any expert advice me? I've read that exynos 5410 chipset in this model lacks coherncy betw... moreIt would get a bit technical but I can explain it. overall Samsung and arm decided to follow big.little architecture designed by arm.this contains 4 little cortex a7 cores handling basic tasks and a15 for the heavy ones. as a7 cores are highly energy efficient and a15 are extremely powerful but very less energy efficient. hence a7 will provide excellent battery life and a15 will provide extreme power. The cores will switch within 10 microseconds and there will be no visible time lag. It was really excellent idea. Now three configurations were possible:
1. cluster migration: system can choose between 4cortex a7 and 4 a15. Under light load a7 and when you fire a game or intensive task, a15 will fire in. worst config.
2. core migration: system can choose any combination depending on need. 4 a7, 3a7 and one a15, 2a7 and 2a15 , 1 a7 and 1 a15 ,and 4 a15. better configuration and more battery saving due to more options for a7.
3. heterogenous multi processing: very complex and analyses the need and can vary any number of cores of any configuration from 1 a7 yo all 8 cores making s4 proper octa core. No present kernel can do it.
It was later found that exynos 5410 had some problems and hence can only do cluster migration and hence decreasing battery life. If it had been core migration, battery life had rocked.
This isn't a serious problem and its still better than a single quad core. battery life and standby are still great and max. power is the same 4 a15 in both cluster and core as HMP isn't possible due to complexity.
note 3's 5420 will fix this and will run on core migration.
thts all I know. thanx 4 asking.
