Damn phones have worked for years without giving them a rest its not a human body.
I waited for the release of S4 like others but it failed to excite me ,,after the silly presentation and he got the S4 out and it was just the same damn thing it reminded me of waiting for apple and they got out same design again..Remember Nokias quirky designs and colours something new coming out all the time...What do we get now just a boring screen..GSMARENA announces new phones every day and they are just the same old design,,look new lg due,,sont releases x range and whatever all just boring slabs..Iam smartfone obsessive but unimpressed with todays smartphones and their faults.
Lets see who can make slimmest phone when every buggars crying out for bigger batterys and with extra thickness comes better optics and more comfortable in hand..Arghh flipping bored of smartphones bring something new to table to blow us away..
You just watch tommorrows news of another round of same phones being released looking just the same.
sammy, 09 May 2013As a long standing samsung fan, I was honestly so dissapointed to hold this phone (GS4) in my ... moreI played with it and not really impressed,why will it not let you turn up brightness it says cant to stop overheating..This is in Tescos.I tried today again and their are stutters and jolts in the device..There can be a delay in taking pictures which is not on this is more 2010 phone..Anyway after about 20 minutes and bored with all the complex settings and junk instaleed I left it yet again and not buying it.
Its still a boring miserable slab to look at and NOT worth 569GBP at all.This needs a big firmware update cause something is causing lag,stutters and camera blur..If its all the software they have put on then that's no excuse the phone should work as intended out of box..This S4 had no card inside either it would be worse with my 64GB card in and all my 1.1GB of apps onboard.
advice, 09 May 2013today i played with the octa version of the s4,there is zero lag,i can't comment a lot about h... morenote2 has much better battery life ,my friend's own it ,
in between ,I m samsung wave2 user , and I m using jelly bean , and play a lot "modern combat 4:zero hour " game on it , there is no lag or heating issues in this metal body phone ,
soon will go for iphone 5
advice, 09 May 2013nice one, i really like your jokes, Batman!!! ....LOLwhat's the joke in this ? it exactly looks like note2, nothing difference other than little smaller screen
Anonymous, 09 May 2013i have s4 the octa version i think samsung release this time a complete faliure really compare... moretoday i played with the octa version of the s4,there is zero lag,i can't comment a lot about heating but during the the hour i spent with the phone i didn't experienced any heat ,the battery drained very slowly.
i think your phone might need a software update.
i have s4 the octa version i think samsung release this time a complete faliure really compared to note 2 this phone is a complete faliure. 1- it overheats when surfing the net temp. reaches 48 degree celsius iam not playing games only surfing the web. the overheating reaches to a point u cannot use the phone.
2- the phone is not speedy it lags when u scroll between home page.
3- battery drained toooo fast i charged in the night in the morning 7am its 100% i used the phone and at 3pm its 5% only i make 6 calls maybe 2 minutes to 3 minutes , i surf the web for 30 minutes thats all till the temp. reaches 48 .
4- iam closing the phone at night and open it next morning and it happens three time when i open it it goes into safe mode i do not know what is that i closed the phone and open it again it disappear .5- the call quality its loud but not clear.
i compared s4 to note 2 which is a marvelous device i mean the note2 doesnot heat at all with surfing the web or playing modern combact or any intensive graphic games iam listening to music downloading video watching it never heat, no lag one time only battery backup very good. good that i didnot sold it.
thats my bad experience with s4
AnonD-12498, 09 May 2013s4 has better new design? lol , its exactly same as note 2nice one, i really like your jokes, Batman!!! ....LOL
man this phone is like as hot plate....disappointed as per Samsung this is normal
i am using this phone from last couple of weeks i am happy with this phone futures very nice phone don't compare with iphone 5 both has different os as per my opinion s4 is 30percentage better than iphone
Sammy salute your Fate, ur sets sell lke hot cakes, but that is no longer persist ever. I have on last minute cancelled on centre shop, when prices of S3 fell 65%when wanted to Sell, and pay 800$ fr only fanfare except no big drastic change, just cam ad titbits here ad there, same jb 4 1.2 on same cells exact copy of each other. Open ur eyes and dont rush fr S4 wait this quarter, when Note 3 is out with 3 gb ram, basic to all troubles.
sammy, 09 May 2013you don't get it do you?
yes S3 is/was plasticy, and I put up with it because it was a massiv... moresorry but i have to disagree with u ,today i had the chance to play with the s4 ,u will notice the difference from the first time,the s4 has better design and built quality(yes i know both are built of plastic)
the s4 has better screen with more realistic colors ,the new software features are just amazing,the camera is excellent ,the s4 has abetter processor and gpu,the gpu is even better than the one which in the iphone 5.
so for people who have the money, they can safely upgrade from the s3 to the s4,because it is really a much better phone.
the radio is missing that is not good. radios are always v important on phone.all the same a v good smart phone
AnonD-252, 09 May 2013S4 is actually smaller than S3, but have a bigger screen!Not only bigger, it is also a better screen.
some may dont knw how to use their android phnes.thats y it ovrheatx and lag and drain, dnt abuse it,gve it tym to rest,wen it getx warm..poor network cverage cn make it unstble too,dlete incmptble apps, s4 is a beauty.love it for its strengths,there is no perfct phne yet
Really need to work on battery backup.
Also nothing new, except camera quality. You won't feel anything new. Almost same like S3.
Zohan, 09 May 2013I love Samsung s4 but they reason is heating and battery pack so I'm little bit nervous to use... moreS4 heating issue persists and now a BIG BUG onthe flagship phone and therefore the battery drains!!!!!1
[deleted post]you don't get it do you?
yes S3 is/was plasticy, and I put up with it because it was a massive improvement from GS2 and ALSO WITH THE HOPE that the GS4 would be a less plastic and more of the class and metal to hold in hands! but it turned out to be opposite.
GS4 feels the same as GS3, and if you already got a S3 it would be madness to change to GS4! as it offers no massive advantages compare to S3! after all it is a phone not a laptop.
give me features like a waterproof, better sounds, far better advance camera, new USEFUL innovative idea, better casing and look, then I am all for it.
GS4 has failed and as a fan I have a right to express it! anyone who have the S3 and is a average user would say the same thing, so there is NO POINT to upgrade to another piece of plastic if you already got one! so I wait for GS5! and lets hope they learn their lesson
