rmt, 04 May 2013can i download fm radio function in s4Fm antena is not present so if u install fm radio app it will nt be useful
I really wanted to buy this phone however losing almost half the internal storage due to bloat-ware is a complete JOKE!! Plus when some games are now more than 1GB and cant be moved to SD 8GB is very low. I mean I am willing to pay more and buy 32GB or 64GB version, ONLY if Samsung ever sell a higher capacity version in the UK. They just want higher profit margins.
32gb version will take time. May be in October or November 2013. That time note 3 will also release but will be 16gb.for these high end smartphones we need at least 32gb.i don't no why Samsung still struck with 16gb.16gb version should be discontinued.
Jhayce, 04 May 2013I got this phone yesterday. then i checked the score on antutu benchmark I saw that the CPU on... morei think because the main core of s4 is the 4 of 1,6ghz.and the other 4 of 1,2ghz is just act as a 'helper'.The benchmark will detect it as 8 if they equally share the same amount of ghz,e.g.8core of 1,6ghz.I think its just some technical language made by samsung engineers.but you can see the way of the different wit the 4core snapdragon of s4.the octacore leads appx6000points.sorry for not good.sorry for my notgood english.
Super Phone ,It will outshine the whole world .Super amoled is so cool technology that glowing Samsung.I request Samsung to use it in middle range of phones as well cheaper than galaxy S3 mini.Do not throw radio away from it.
I went into Tesco today and they have 4 units to plsys with..I altered screen to dynamic and full screen brightness,,my good ness this phone takes some working out even though they have tried to make settings easier..I went to videos and opened it up to receal about 8 preset videoes and the stutter was terrible..I tried a few times but each time I opened up vids and tried to scroll stutter was terrible..It was sort of opening up the videos but come all this power and still cant cope..No other app was open in task manager.
The first video had kids in it and must admit colours and screen are top notch bar its not very bright..
I did not buy but feel if I did buy you have a hell of a lot of settings customisations to keep you occupied,i get bored of smartphones easily..Tesco not doing a bad deal at 30GBP over 24 months with free phone but not really free you still pay for it,,data is only 500MB so that would be drawback for us geeks..
Arghhh its 5.30pm in Uk and resisting buying one because I will regret signing up for 2 years but once its on pay as you go at 399GBP I will buy,,,I THINK !!
ominder thusoo, 04 May 2013without radio S4 is as good as ZEROU will buy 42k phone for radio? Better buy 7k or 10k smart phones phones as per ur requirement. 42k too much for this phone. Or better buy laptop @30k :)
Even the big boys have supply issues:

I guess maybe the phone first start-up have alot of software or others to run, therefore overheating problem occurred.
What's wrong with GSM Arena main front page today it won't load properly
AnonD-141775, 02 May 2013I bought one yesterday and this one too gets too hot very soon with 5 to 10 mins of usage, it ... moreOk..and now today the service center says, they have received lots of complaints on the over heating and they can't replace the phone..instead they would run a patch that would fix the problem, they even showed me a mail indicating that. I am disappointed though - still hopeful of getting the issue fixed.
Very very disappointed with Samsung..should have stayed with Apple :-(
