Sowmi, 18 Jun 2013@Tcool Forgot to mention about the ram S4 has DDR 3 were as HTC one has DDR 2 and S3 has 1g... moreEven though S4 have DDR3 ram and higher CPU still it slower than HTC One and lagging.

The S4 is really great, at least we are afford to buy the samart phone rather than god damn expensive from Apple Pie
JACK SPARRROW, 17 Jun 2013No need for a screen protectorso what about the cover is the back side of the phone scratch resistant? and the power button is too small I don't feel pressing it :/

check the las5 word in second line.
btw thanks for asking a real query.
Guys For your information
S4 comes with complete high end hardware.
Like octa 8 core processor(certain country)
Now soon S4 going to comes with world first super fast LTE technology and going to step up in korea.
Every body knows EVERY ACTION HAS OPPOSITE REACTION.
same way thats what we get heating issue and not fully optimized apps.samsung is working on that soon these bugs will be solved by updates.
Where as HTC one Xperia Z all comes with quadcore and DDR2 ram so they get optimized apps which was solved by Samsung on its S2,S3 and Note 1and2.
Atlast Samsung be the first for all invasion.

shubham yadav, 18 Jun 2013unfortunately this is what i think about you. i am using s4(i9500) since the start of june and... moreI am not an advanced user like you. I just wanted to upgrade from my previous device to a new one and I ended up getting the s4 based on reviews and recommendations. I checked the kernel version and its #1. I dont know how to check if the device i am using is fake or not but it sure doesnt run like how a flagship should. The screen freezes while I am texting, there is a very noticable lag at times and my contact list takes for ever to open these days. I havent had any over heating issues yet though. If you have any suggestions for the prob I an facing do help me out. I am using i9500.

Most of the S4 comes with #1 made in vietnam. But certain S4 made in china comes with #2 and #3
Am from chennai india my S4 is made in vietnam its Kernel is #1 please check the manufacture county in box first.
Tcool, 18 Jun 2013S3-1GB RAM
S3-Exynos 4412 Quad chipset
S4-Exynos 5 Octa 5410 chipset
Forgot to mention about the ram
S4 has DDR 3 were as HTC one has DDR 2 and S3 has 1gb ram of DDR2
DDR3 ram buss speed is 2133Mbps(consume 20%less battery than DDR2)
DDR2 ram buss speed is 1083Mbps
because of this reason GSM arena compared S4 with laptop.
