Quick tricky questions:
Does having the basic set of "quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7" for mainly UI operations (TouchWiz) affect the performance of the system???? Being TouchWiz not precisely light, and that it involves several of the cool and main features of the S4, I wonder.
I don't know how "heavy" have to be a task for the system to switch to the A15 cores. For example if I open Maps or YouTube, which set of cores is likely to be in use?
How good can we say (based on facts) are the set of quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7? And Does 1.2GHz sounds and can be a bit slow? what do you think?
Would it be possible to deactivate the basic set of cores manually? Would this destroy battery optimizations?
Has someone of you read an article about all of this? Please share!
Thanks. I hope you can help me.

all phones heat up a bit during a call but not to a very bad extent as you are describing.
and it only happens sometimes.

Although they know android sucks, they still want to buy them.Same with game of thrones everybody says I like that but when you ask them what they like about it they don't know...They just copy everyone else saying they like it when its pile of dog chod..I get slated for wanting back the old style smartphones with real buttons on but that's my opinion and what I want..
This phone is no better than S3 so may as well buy that its got less problems and cheaper..
Ovidiu , 17 Jul 2013Hello guys, I am considering purchasing this piece some this year; i own right now a Samsung G... moreEach and every app purchased from the Play Store can be downloaded as many times you need, this, obviously, without paying again.
You can download them to any Android smartphone simply by signing in with your google account (gmail). You can even have more than one account in one smartphone, that way you can share apps easily, or get apps from friends, etc.
That's very good of the Play Store, and that's why buying apps and games is the most recommended.

That's not true. A phone can have metal body and still have a strong signal... morewho said metal phones dont have good reception.....
my nokia n8 had the best reception.
even in the elevators i got full signal. (it depends on the network provider as well :/)
AnonD-116241, 16 Mar 2013I prefer plastic or polycarbonate. To those who want a metal finish, kindly read more informa... moreTo FREEMAN 101:
That's not true. A phone can have metal body and still have a strong signal reception. Look at Nokia...MOST of the Nokia E-Series focus on metal casing and the entire world knows that Nokia phones have the best reception. Even Nokia's cheapest phone the Nokia 1100 (flashlight phone) beat many high-end phones in terms of antenna signal reception.
