Samsung Galaxy S4 Pros and Cons: The Buyers Ultimate Guide (Kindle Edition)
manojji, 16 Aug 2013DOES THE PHONE REALLY GET HOT?
Dear S4 users, can any of you please tell me whether S4 get ... moreHi....
I am using s4 i9500 from 15 days . When I bought it I used to heat up after using for 20 min. But after series of updates its very minimal now. Even I noticed that much of heating or you can say bit more in htc one and xperia z which my friends are using. Having 1080p full hd display and a powerful processor along with it definately any mobile will get warm or may be a bit hot. It might not be so sexy like htc one or xperia z but On the other hand see the pros of this handset.
1. Superb display
2. Removeable battery and sd card support.
3. Bettery battery compared to both htc one and xperia z.
4. One of the Best camera around.
5. Lot of software stuff whether you use it or not.
6. Easy to handle 5 inch display phone.
etc..... etc..... etc......
guys don't think twice, you can get this mobile. As people say its not so cheep looking or feeling mobile, but htc one and xperia z are built with better materials.
If at all you guys are having any heating issue it will be resolved from future updates.
If you are so much worried about looks and built quality go for htc one.
I bought this GREAT S4 yesterday.
I thought of selecting either S4 or Xperia Z.
My GREAT friend in the store said worst about Z.
Hence I bought this S4.
I used many phones and experienced technologies.
In my opinion I thought of S4 will be very superior.
But I can say....
Sub standard material body.Not worth for INR 40000.
Just for processor and hard disc capacity 40000 is utter waste.The display is not good and not REAL like Sony phones.I used SP.The clarity i experienced in SP was really GOOD than this S4.
Also start from INR 5000 to 40000 same DESIGN phones from Samsung.(Edges folded design on all 4 sides).
Why Samsung doing this?
There should be worth for the investment.
I used Lenovo P770 and K900 too.The Battery pack up was awesome in Lenovo even with wifi on throughout the day.
My intension is not to commend BAD about Samsung S4.
But I feel the money investment is waste.
Samsung should think of using HIGH QUALITY attractive materials for higher end phines.
Compare Automobile technolgy.Audi,BMW's are more rigid than any brands.Why?They get more and give more to customers.
I feel if you keep any brand samsung it looks like S4,Young,Duos etc etc,Means 7000 rs and 40000 rs phones seems to be of same resumblance.
According to Apple, any display with high resolution means any display with more than 300 ppi is called Retina display. Based on this, Retina is just a trademark taken by Apple. So Retina means nothing new it has, it is just a display having more than 300 ppi resolution fore mobile phone and more than 220 ppi for tablet.
I have S4 now for 2 weeks and i must say its a crap phone. It lag all the time , when i start camera it reboots. My S3 was 10 times faster
After the latest update to my indian version of Galaxy S4 I9500, I am able to move apps to sd card, but if its device SD or microSD is still not clear as there is no Android/data or Android/obb in the microSD. The additonal data for games like asphalt 7 and real racing 3 are taking up device storage instead of microSD which is resulting in insufficient storege error on new app installations. I'm sure that this is a firmware or app or microSD exFAT format issue. This cannot be a h/w issue. Can anyone give a safe (non rooting) and effective solution to this?

DOES THE PHONE REALLY GET HOT?
Dear S4 users, can any of you please tell me whether S4 get hot after use? I have checked even Samsung India website,www.samsung.com/in, many users are complaining that it gets very hot, sometimes it reaches even 50 degree? a genuine reply is solicited from an experienced user. Today I was going to buy it but I postponed.
Thanks very much.
i am not happy with this phone, the camera has a 1 sec lag delay,. rediculous!!! has anyone encountered this? my s3 snaps photos immedietly
fake, 15 Aug 2013Samfan don't want to admit that Super Amoled one of the worst screen tech LOl. PS. I used t... moreSo just to be clear, you mock Samsung's s.amoled screens and tell us that after the first one you bought you didn't go urgh, I'll never buy another one of these rubbish screens, you went on to have all of them, well the only remaining question here to ask is which rival phone company phonepays your wage. Had every Samsung phone from the jet till now the screens are fantastic. If it wasn't for big firms messing with the public's mind, employing firms who just happen to compare their phones screen to Samsung amoled and hey guess what their phone comes out on top, weeeeeeell I never, look simple truth is, if these threads wer'nt patrolled by professional thread jockeys steering public opinion, we'd never have even heard what a pixel was, and for all these people who went into a shop played with a gs4 and liked it so much with the software already in it that they choose it above all other phones that they are never gonna buy another Samsung phone because they are slow at getting some software upgrade they never even saw when they bought their phone let alone as though it stood as a condition of the phone being their choice. it should be made transparent as a sticky thread at the top of every thread for the benefit of novice readers, that there are people who come on the threads paid or no with the sole purpose of turning potential buyers away from the phone being discussed, well what is some one who is supposedly so happy with their iPhone/l.g/htc/nokia/sony doing in Samsung threads I'm not going to theirs, is it because they're secretly unhappy with what they've got and won't admit it to themselves, our they're jealous or just being paid to come here to desperately keep bringing up the name of their bad choice of phone in a desperate hope, that people who have come here to a thread about their good choice of phone may notice other brands as they try to rubbish the galaxy s line of phones. My galaxy s2 and 2x note 1's are like brand new phones with ginger bread 4.1.1 and the s3 and s4 of my family members are all they should be after their latest updates. Go to the stores an try em, if you like good, if you don't good, but some of the stuff written in internet threads in desperate attempts to put you off buying, hardly seen such desperate lies. Just one instance, smiled not as bright as certain phone, well big nothing deal,NO ONE USES THEIR PHONE ON FULL BRIGHTNESS.So unless your wearing sunglasses for some strange reason your going to turn the brightness down, or your battery will last about 3 minutes.O the sunlight, dear me, what is wrong with you, are you trying to say, no matter how good any phone screen is, that you stubbornly refuse to turn your phone, yes simply turn your phone, really every top high end phone can be read outside unless you want to deliberately stubbornly stupidly bake it to prove some irrelevant point, but amoleds contrast, that's what it's all about, lovely. Good fortune to every body and their own choice of phone, go back to your own particular phones thread and enjoy it, what were you doing here anyway no more pretend problems to sicken real Samsung owners leave this thread for Samsung interestees,potential buyers and those with genuine problems.
Why is that Air Gesture works only on phone web browser. Why it's not working on other web browsers?
