I am using 9500 for almost a month now , everything is perfect except one thing : battery life.
I wonder why should anyone use a such expensive phone and live with phobia about his battery..? I closed all battery draining new techs. Cleaned ram, cash and even myself frequently, put brightness at 10-20 % and still not happy.
Samsung ! Battery life is everything isn't it..?!
Put it at your top priority please, do something,release some new batteries with 3000 4000 5000, what prevents you for gods sake..?
I am not enjoying this phone because of the battery life it drains 1-2% in seconds.
whoeva that have used this phone, is it rich in bass ?? i men deep bass
I'm luuvin' it...so fast and cool!
Best galaxy s unit...till note 3 comes out!
I don’t care bad comments on GS4. I like so much after updated, now very smooth, excellent permanence. I have disabled some bloatware softwares which ware I am not using so far. Advance Mobile Care app all-in-one doing a good job. Most of the time listening music and FM through TuneIn Radio, I don’t feel it has no Radio. I have enjoyed with camera for video shooting and photo specially drama and animation shots in the weekend gathering with friends and family. I like also View Flip Cover feels slim as well. Listening to my daily schedule notes and headline news from S Voice. I have customized beautiful home screens looks mind fresh. Keep it up. Thanks SAM.

Anonymous, 04 Jul 2013SAD FAN.. 20 millions s4 owners DONOT share ur SAD BAD views .. iphone 6 is due out in FEW mo... morethanks for your post, I don't advice anyone, it is an opinion based on FACTS, FIGURES and most importantly expert analysis, such as JPMORGAN the top financial body who declared the GS4 sale is dropping like a stone, beside, where are those fans who are truly enjoying this phone? why they are not here with force when GS2, even GS3 came out and everyone supporting how great phone they were against the competitions, and they were at the time!
but sadly for GS4 it is not longer the case, competition has catched up and passed galaxy series, because Samsung decided to make a mass market phone with NO INNOVATION, NO NEW IDEA, NO FEEL GOOD FACTOR, AND NO FM RADIO, battery drains like a sink, same plastic rubbish body as GS3, those who design this piece of rubbish should be ban from any smart phone company to ever practice! why?
because they have not come up with anything innovative or different! who cares about processing power beyond GS3 processor , average user what to see something which STANDS OUT, do you understand what that means surely NOT,
GS4 will keep hunting Samsung for years to come, they absolutely put NO EFFORT to make this phone, and all you need to do is to look how FORWARD looking the competition is standing against this plastic brick!
sad day for Samsung , sad day for me as a owner of GS3. I returned my GS4 only after 2 days of used, as it offered me nothing NEW
