If you want a slim and powerful android phone , then go for s4.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2013nik-all your reasons guessworks are NON-SCIENTIFIC -REF s4 heating issues .. all smartphones ... moreokay. let me make them scientific:
PS:IMP INFORMATION FOR ALL FACING HEATING PROBLEMS.
1. if an antivirus is set to auto check viruses. it will continuously run in the background and eat battery, cpu power and RAM. which will obviously generate heat as the energy must be dissipated and semiconductors generate heat.
2. this is the most common reason of heating. silly people find the cheapest microSD card and start complaining on the phone. if a memory card has low bandwidth, cpu will spend more time in copying the files and hence it'll generate more heat. DON'T STORE APPS IN CLASS 4 OR 6 microSD CARD. THIS WILL RUIN YOUR EXPERIENCE AND WILL MAKE THE PHONE LAG AND HEAT.
3. as you might know that the thin the material, the less resistance to heat it provides. see heat rate flow is proportional to the temperature difference and area and inversely proportional to the thickness of your material perpendicular to the junction.
hence all the three points that mr. Nik Vel told were scientifically correct.
also the most common reason for complaint is that people should wait for the phone to be normal after a firmware update. after the firmware update, the cpu is set to a lot of tasks and optimizing many apps. hence it heats for a couple of days after the firmware update. hence after 3-4 days, the phone becomes perfectly normal. so people please be patient.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2013nik-all your reasons guessworks are NON-SCIENTIFIC -REF s4 heating issues .. all smartphones ... moreI do agree. am not a one who just started using a smart phone the last day. So I know how much a smart phone will heat up. few s4 has hell lot heat issue. Mine is bearable but my bro has one and it heats up like a toaster at times.
The below stuffs are nt scientific but I tried and it reduced bit of heating issues.
LET THAT BE Scientific or NON.
Am happy with that!
Dont buy this phone... It gets heat up. You rather buy HTC One if you are an android fan, otherwise I suggest iPhone 4s or 5.
Android phones are really good with their specifications... If you consider phones through specifications then you would end up on phones like these... But in reality iPhone don't do gimmicks, they just simply tell the truth. I had a bad experience of using Android But now I don't wanna shift from iOS... iPhone 5 is best phone!

Hearing all these comments about this overheating issues puts me off getting this phone and I want to get it next month but it seems like it has a serious problem.
samsung I9500 Galaxy S4 is best in the WORLD!!the best their is the their ever will..
My s4 works perfectly. No heating problems. Very quality camera. best in the world.
Reg: Heating Issues.
Reasons can be few,
1.If you have an anti virus in place its causing more heat as I guess its also checking malwares when we browse net.
Suggestion: Am not using any now. Removed quick heal and Avg after trying both.
2.Memory Card..Its a big draw back if u have a cheap memory card in s4,it will just heat like anything when u use phone.
Suggestion: Use a class 10 SD Card.
3. Regarding the back cover.. The default back case is soooo thin that its causes more heat when we use.. An S view case is reducing this a lot as the back cover alone wit it is bit thick.
Super AMOLED is always better than LCD. Even IPS LCD 2.
S4 deserves it. Even got dual processors. So many times better than I-phone!!
ps4, 09 Aug 2013really? :dps4- CAN you NOT comprehend simple basics on RAM and internal storage ? why have u made ur silly response ?
Ice Jeans, 09 Aug 2013I want to know, what's the difference between RAM and intern storage,
Now my 2nd question is ... morehello! RAM is the Random Access Memory,it is tat memory which the phn requires for opening or running any programe,more RAM u have more easily ur phn works with any app.!
On the other hand internal memory is that memory which the company provide with the phone for data storage
