siddhant, 11 May 2013This mobile is a beast.
The battery life is awesome, the processor is fast, the screen is mag... morethat is a lie, HTC one now proved to be better in some categories to this peice of crap plastic, and everyone knows that already.
to say this doesn't feel too bad in hands, is the biggest lie, because it is by no means feels premium in hads at all! I honestly don't care how fast the processor is as long as that plastic body hold this
samsung wake up, your fans (me included) leaving you!
if within the next 6-12 months samsung doesn't come with better quality phone, they would lose this market of Galaxy brands forever! time is running out!
Please, does anyone knows how much cost samsung S4 in Italy in official samsung store.
Thanks in advance.
Anonymous, 13 May 2013My s4 i9500 is getting really hot in excess of 60 degrees Celsius.... What should I do? imaginary S4 dont heat up that high.
someone is lying , but if you are honest why come to Gsmarena and to us on Gsmarena, Are we going to buy you a better phone NO , can we help your heating problem when we ( including me ) already said our Galaxy s4 from day one never had a heat or heating issue , you should be talking to your Seller or Samsung . Gsmarena has two units of the Galaxy s4 in their office why didn't their video showing us the Galaxy s4 ran Hot like iron , Heat up and had Heating Problem or taking out the battery after 3-5 mins of Game play because their unit ran hot ?
Actually life should be good since the S4 has a Cortex A-7 to switch to for low utilization operations and standby.
wave678, 13 May 2013come on guys...battery life will definitely be short specially when all smart features, wifi, ... moreBut every company should think about battery as they are improving the feature. Customer should can go through the feature at list one day.
all the features like d smart stay,pause,scroll are just to b experienced,after that u can turn it off and also turn off all other connecting services like d news update and all that,adjust d brightness to low and put in automatic,turn off all amazing features,they should b used if u want to impress a friend,advisably they should b turn off.this w make u have a longer battery life and also reduce d heating.i need testimonies.

AnonD-115286, 11 May 2013Some ppl are bashing this phone like hell while some ppl are praising this phone like God. But... moreYou can't recommend a phone based on playing with it at the store.
Listen to people who are living with the phone.
Best time to buy a phone is at the end of the year. This GS4 will be old news by Christmas time.
Can anyone tell me the heating issue in S4 while playing game within 3 to 4 mins you cannot touch the backside of the phone even the front touch screen also get heated.... anyone from samsung can help me to resolve this issue...
O.k the S4 is a faster phone than the S3,but with functions that Samsung have already put on the S4,is very bad for the Batterylife on the Phone,you have to keep a close eye on things running,so Advance Task Manager makes it easier to shut things down,you can install applications from your memory card,as I put my 64gb card I had in my S3 an put in the S4 an it was so simple to instore things from the card,just wish Samsung would have placed the back speaker on the S4 in the same place as the S3 one,because when I place my S4 on a stand its not clear,so now got to drill or saw a slot on my stands to get Full volume from my S4
