Samsung Galaxy S4(Colour: Black)landed in my desk almost 40 hours ago, 1st impressions ...
Build> Far better than earlier 1s including SIII in terms of Look & Feel both though the plastiky feel remains, 7 out of 10
Display> Best as on date keeping Google Nexus, HTC Butterfly & Sony Xperia Z in mind, Unfortunately I have never experienced LG OPTIMUS G, 9 out of 10
Speed > Available benchmarks are good enough, no further comments
UI> Better than ever with true Buttery feel, 9 on 10
CAMERA> Excellent Back & Front Camera Performance, 8 out 10
Audio> Music & Voice both are of high caliber when my Beats Tour Headphone connected, decent when Phone Speaker in use, 7 out 10
Battery> Not more than 24 hrs with 3G ON even in moderate usage, but too early to conclude
No major grievance except few minor 1s...
>a better pair of Headphones was expected in the box itself
>Phone gets hotter with continuous usage like gaming or watching videos
If we talk about the sound quality then it lags behind other newcomers like htc one ,xperia z
Man phone os awsome interns of multitasking in terms camerA but there is heating issue I have check my cousin handset as well it's the same issue man if u want. Phone plus iron box better buy it or else best u can take s3
There was so much hype about the S IV I kind of expected something... new.
I know it's all badass on the inside but honestly it sort of strikes me as the lovechild of an S III and a Note II.
Still... Well done Samsung on the world's most powerful phone. :)
AnonD-21567, 30 Apr 2013htc one is 10 times better than galaxy s4... wat a fat body.. I hate it..! look at htc one..... moreuhmm... first of all, S4 is thinner both in paper, in looks and in actual use. Second of all, it's gesture. Third of all, nobody cares if HTC One is impressive outside (everyone knows that!) S4 is being used as an amazing phone while your HTC One is used for design purposes
arriving next week at cmk philippines 29,990 pesos :) with official samsugn warranty
AnonD-141157, 30 Apr 2013Oh my god why people buying expensive phones after few month they are going to release new mod... more@vhen...u actually have a point here even though i am equally guilty of dis fone craze.....lol..but seriously,d rate @which dis guys produce mind blowing phones is crazy u know.i'll take ur advice though.
first it is the plastic , then sopa dish , then no radio and now the Galaxy s 4 lags , Wow this phone has seen alot of hate and it's just a phone . what does all of these things have to do with you calling 911 or you calling home ( Telecommunications works just fine on my Galaxy s 4 ) , we have this smartphone we spend OUR money on this phone , we Good we Happy so deal with it
con, 30 Apr 2013I didn't say it hangs, i said that the UI stutters and that's a fact. That's what i saw with m... morei have a black galaxy s4 i9500 i don't know what you talking about lags you just a hater , besides what does lags have to do with you calling 911 or you calling home ( it's a phone )
AnonD-104401, 30 Apr 2013another a big lier ... octa core processors never hangsI didn't say it hangs, i said that the UI stutters and that's a fact. That's what i saw with my own eyes in a retail store. It's clearly not the CPU problem nor the other hardware, i guess it's the TouchWiz that makes it laggy at times. When the software is not polished, you can put as much cores as you want - it will still lag.

These games can be played on smartphones 1 year old too, and the experience will be buttery smooth. But I ask again, why phone manufacturers, especially Samsung, launch so many new phones on the market, even if their predecesors can do the same things that are thrown at them? I really understand those manufacturers that didn't had that much of a success, like HTC, Motorola or Sony. The HTC ONE and the Sony Xperia Z were as necessary as breathing air for HTC and Sony, because what they launched until now wasn't really on par with their fame, people buying only the brand, like they already do in the case of Samsung and Apple, with the main difference that these two are superior to the likes of Sony, HTC or Motorola. LG is coming strong from behind, it has just become the world's third smartphone manufacturer company and this can only be good...I mean for us, not for their competitors. LG has to be the top manufacturer again, because all competitors built their empires on LG's back, LG making touchscreen phones when Samsung was making Nokia 1100-like phones.
And to those who wonder why are we, who don't like Samsung on Samsung's page, is that we don't like the unfairness which exists right now in the smartphone market, with Samsung and Apple dominating the world and building their empires by stealing LG's technology when it was most important, when smartphones were at their beginnings. LG in that time was the most important manufacturer, making groundbreaking phones, when Samsung, Apple and the others were only dreaming of having this...yeah, that's life, unfair, and you have to fight in order to live.
Most amazing Smartphone ever. Using it since the very second it was launched in India. Display is uncomparable. Playing Ironman 3, NFS Most wanted and Asphalt Heat. Works amazing. Sensors give a unmatched user experience. I wish if the battery backup would have been taken care of. Hardly matters, its the Bugatti Veyron of the mobiles. Guys close your eyes and go for it.
AnonD-139675, 30 Apr 2013I don't need to coz I'm not rooting for those phones. I'm rooting for s4.i have the Galaxy s 4 the black i9500 unlocked and i don't have that problem , but the problems i have or will have because it's a new smartphone i will deal with that between the seller and Samsung not on Gsmarena , but it's your phone do what ever you like , but people who don't like the galaxy s 4 will not see anything positive about your comment
