When news broke that the 16 GB Galaxy S4 only let you have access to 9 GB of the internal memory, users were rightfully a bit angry. It is understood that system partitions eat into some of our space, but gobbling up half of the storage promised is cause for concern. After Samsung suggested that people used SDcards to expand that space, it seems that they may be looking for another solution to the problem.
In speaking with CNET, a Samsung spokesperson said they are “committed to listening to our customers” and that they are “reviewing the possibility to secure more memory space through further software optimization.” There was no timetable given for this reviewing process and that doesn’t mean it will even come to fruition. If Samsung can find a way to cut down on the size of their partition, S4 users could see some storage coming back their way.
Gsmarena needs to address these heating posting , Gsmarena needs to test their S4 units and see if it turns hot like iron or if they have to take out the battery because the phone is too hot , it's one thing to dislike something , but these lies need to stop . how come my S4 has not ran hot or heat up from day one, go ahead and talk about plastic all you want words don't hurt me ,
simar1239, 16 May 2013I m using s4 n it is heating very much what should I do?go run around your house 3 times , or call your seller tell them about your unit why come here to Gsmarena
@ FS! My dear friend You mentioned all the features that different phones have. But You didnt just realise all the phones have one feature in specific. IF Samsung getting all the features together makes you or anyone else feel they are copying then dosent really matter. Cause they have managed to get all features under one roof (S4) which nobody hasnt. So be it.
I have my s4 since it was launch in India. Nothing problem in lag, heating.all who those like htc why are you commented on s4 if you are not using s4.
Had my hands on S4 today, i m A SONY fan but Yes Galaxy s4 is a show stopper for sure. It Fits better in hands as compared to XZ. Colors of XZ looks real in my opinion, S4 has warm tint. S4 screen fills the body and that looks good but delicate.Galaxy s4 has brought the prices of S3 to as low as 24000 rs in india. It was above 30000 just few days back.
Both S4 & XZ will have lot of custom ROM in future and it cant be same for HTC OR LG.
Flagships now costs 40k previously 30k was limit.
[deleted post]I simply stated a fact... Samsung just copies other and names it something different.. Read that paragraph on page two. You'd know how much of a copy cat Samsung is.
I think S4 might be a little behind in battery comparison with Xperia Z. Its way more lighter and faster thanx to Octa-Core.At least i know that i will get system upgrades 100 times faster than an Xperia. Dont have to worry about Sudden Death. 100 times better resell Value and much more satisfaction on S4. Other guys Bitching about samsung and specially S4!!!!!!!!!! Common Guys Grow up or take a walk.

hd-market, 16 May 2013GS2 was truly AMAZING phone, GS3 was step forward and great,! but GS4 is truly revalting, not... moretry to use the s4 and you'll see the difference between the s3 & s4, I have been using the s series since galaxy s to s4 and still have them all. My s4 is far better than my s3.
[deleted post]The sign for people who unable to grasp the goodness of s4...its the risk when you are market leader manufacture...too many 'less'educated trolls around you creating mess
SamRocks, 16 May 2013What an awesome smartphone Samsung created! Killer phone.. Seriously.. I'd rather buy a Dell l... moreregarding ur manufacturing cost querry...
do u even know about TAX?? EXCISE DUTY?? MARKETING?? 13k is only the cost of production... after that company pays excise duty, spend a lot in marketing n incur taxes(VAT), etc according to ur cities n then transport cost, shipping cost, all are involved with it... so dont say they are fooling u by taking four times the manufacturing cost... do u even know the medicines which u take when u are ill just costs 100 times less than what u pay for it... but a lot of things are involved with it too n u cant complain for that. .
