sad fan, 04 Jul 2013thanks for your advice, phone is not my life, but I refuse to be fool by Samsung to sell me GS... moreso u r shouting coz S4 is just an S3 wid a new dress?? well both have different version of arm processors, S4 has latest, while screen is full hd on S4, camera is 13mp against 8 on S3... OS is latest 4.2.2 out of box... screen size is 0.2" more... its a big upgrade over S3... how u can say its same as S3... may be dimension wise its same but looks wise also its a bit different n better than S3... so if u dont wanna buy it then shut ur mouth coz consumers have choice n freedom of whatever they wanna buy....
KK, 03 Jul 2013How do i find out if my Samsung Galaxy S4 is genuine? Please help.install antutu benchmark and test your phone's score. if its between 25-30k than its original.
tip: restart phone before test
gadgetz, 03 Jul 2013Hello Shubham,
Thanks for the advise buddy but even with kies it says the current firmware ... morenow I think you have three options left:
1. try kies lite.
2. try for some days. I think the rollout or server will be overcrowded
3. go to samsung official store. they will update your firmware.
i hate galaxy s4 just bcoz it dont have a simple essential feature FM !!

for your information GS2 was amazing and still is today, what an amazing piece of engineering which even today stand out from the crowd UNLIKE this piece of plastic brick
GS4 was the biggest mistake Samsung has ever made

DONT CRY TOO MUCH T... morethanks for your advice, phone is not my life, but I refuse to be fool by Samsung to sell me GS3 dressed as GS4 and think I am stupid not to see it! bit of more processing power and the rest of the gimmick there has absolutely no USE to average user like myself.
I am not crying my mate, I am shouting loud and clear for everyone to see this failure and not get close to this piece of plastic rubbish which I could only bear it in my hands for TWO single days and returned it with the pleasure/
there is no i6, but it will be iphone 5S, every year people make the same mistake , iphone never go pass S series that is another marketing which would be hard for you to understand
so no go and get a life, and get yourself a real phone like Sony, or HTC ONE, a phone which you be proud to show to everyone and be proud to hold in your hands.
hope Samsung change this in the next version.
Bought a new s4 only to find out the phone has a factory defective camera. I am very disappointed coz the camera is one of the selling points for the phone. The sad thing is that 3 down the line samsung customer care does not care about the issue and keeps on tossing me from one end to the other on replacing the faulty phone. I just how many other people could be suffering? I wonder do you realy counter check your products before releasing them to the markt? I am very disappointed, no phone no money.
After S4 still S3 demand in Pakistan better than HTC One and Sony Xperia Z

Thanks for the advise buddy but even with kies it says the current firmware is the latest firmware. I tried on two different laptops but same result. I also tried to factory reset the phone, but of no avail.
This is really odd. I am an experienced user and i have owned Galaxy S1, S2, Note1. Currently i own Note2 and S4, but i have never seen such a behaviour before. An option would be to manually install via Odin. But i dont want to do that in my brand new S4.
What to do?? Any help anyone..

please don't listen to trolls bashing GS4. it's absolutely stunning.
and to all the trolls here i want to say that find a new job. people are not fools.
i admit that GS4 is splendid, but you still keep your note 2 as this will be really a minor upgrade. you should keep your note 2 unless you are very rich man with loads of money.
to all the trolls who are saying that GS4 is a marginal upgrade from s3 please tell me that apart from design which has changed little, what other feature has not changed: the screen, the camera, the UI, processor, new sensors. whatelse you want. and samsung didn't create it to crush GS3, but this is a great upgrade for people owning mid rangers or 2-3 year old flagships.
PERSONALLY I DON'T BELIEVE IN CHANGING PHONES EVERY HALF OR ONE YEAR. UPGRADING MUCH HIGHER REALLY GIVES SATISFACTION AND THAT'S NECESSARY.
above all it's your choice but many people buy phones every now and then and than regret their choice and later troll here and there saying that it's not a marginal upgrade.
nothing groundbreaking happens in 1 year. so please don't expect marginal difference in every now and then.
