ordered mine today , 5 day delivery can't wait. tried it out in the store yesterday and really liking it. Lets hope it doesn't disappoint :)
got s4 yestdy in india showing 8.82 storage the set is of 16 gb ?????? does anyone knows y??
I bought mine (GT-I9500)on 27th April 13 and I am happy with it. But noticed its getting hot while charging, making calls and browsing. Is anyone else facing this issue? or is it normal? When I called Samsung customer care, they said to consult in customer care.
Otherwise the phone is good. Good to handle and can perform almost all applications one handed. And yes a missing part is FM radio, which can be compromised with BH-221 Nokia BT headset with inbuilt FM radio.
Please share your experience with the heat issue I mentioned above.
Teju, 29 Apr 2013Just bought S4 its awesome.... better than Iphone 5Better than iphone 5 in what ways? What did u liked in gs4?
Jst got myself 1 galaxy s4.its gettung heated up very fast.just recieve a call,r snd a text,r even if its idol.may i knw why?????
devrafaelnadal777, 29 Apr 2013I'm a hardcore Samsung fan too bro!!! owned s2 and note but everytime with the deame design I ... moreif u didn't like the design of the s4 u should have bought the htc one because it is much better than the xperia z.(unless u r spending most of your day under water)
the xperia z has low contrast and poor viewing angles ,things that of course u noticed them from day one,also it has less accurate colors than galaxy s4 movie mode,iphone 5,and htc one.
don't forget the scratchable scatter proof screen protector which u can't remove(xperia z).
the xperia z loud speaker performance is very poor,u can't hear the phone ringing in crowded place.
the camera performance still below the performance of the one year old galaxy s3,it can't stand against the s4 camera or the htc one camera(after the new update)
battery performance of the xperia z is moderate.
so congratulations for the xperia z and its design.
for me and other millions we see no value of premium and performance in one flagship in the xperia z.
as u mentioned u r not just trolling.
saw this beast today at the phone store, and it looks great... the design is simple but it feels comfortable, light weight and its good that most of the things you see is the screen of the phone, i'm beggining to like the design of S4 compared to HTC or XZ...
Haters need to check out this phone in real life, and stop hating just because its samsung.
Also the phones camera is one of the best i've ever seen in a phone.
Very superior in all aspects !!
1: design is no as captivating as s3
2: no FM Radio
i have this phone for the second day and it still doesn't amaze me as the first experience like with the S3.
cant see the octa core working,well maybe its a bit faster on some apps but regardless that haven't enjoyed pretty much anything.
my device came and right out the box started using it,loaded gmail account and everything started downloading without customization from my side.
screen is beautiful,videos are sharper,pictures are rich in color.camara voice commands didn't work that well just like with the S3 had to practice speaking while holding the camara in shoot position while the momment goes away.
another thing that cought my attention was that the native browser doesn't run flash player content.
and since the get go is laggy,something I didn't spected from such a suposedely powerfull device.
simple commands like pressing the home button after launching an app takes pretty much valious miliseconds.
what can I say,i was pretty much undecided about getting this terminal or the HTC one.but now only rests to try the htc one when I get rid of this S4.
p.s.>my intention is not diminish the S4,its just I just spected really much more from it.
if you hold galaxy grand and s4 in hand, it would not make any difference.
Why have they given 'Infrared'!?
Some top models of leading brands are now again giving Infrared! Who uses that now with other advanced File Transfer Technologies Available!
Or is this some new and different version of Infrared im unaware of?
Yea samsung has got a huge deal of specs.
but i think samsung should do something great for user experience like hTC did.
frankly htc sense is way better than touchWiz.
Many comments on the radio non-existance. Some of them was about expensiveness of 3g data to listen radio on the web, some was about many radio stations which don't have streaming media options. They're right I think. But those radios and int.service providers will have to adapt themselves to the trend. As I know I-Phones don't have radio either. Total market share of i-phones plus galaxy s4 or s5's in the near future may be somewhere near 50 percent. If those radios want to be listened (commercial stimulus) they have to find solutions together with internet service providers like less data usage when listening radio on the net, avalibility of much more web radio streams etc. You cannot resist to the trend.
mokha65, 28 Apr 2013Hi team
i would like to ask if galaxy s4 i9500 has LTE (4G) , because some info said yes and ... moremost people have doubt about it... well i will clear it to every point...
there are 2 octa core verions out of which one support 4G while other supports hspa+
1. the latter one is the international version viz, i9500 which supports only hspa+... its usually for those countries which doesnt have LTE connectivity, but some countries have got both i9500 n i9505
2. the former one is korean version which has same octa chip but clocked at higher(1.8ghz) speed in its A15 core n also supports LTE(4G)... n its only for korean market...
3. third one is i9505 or LTE version which upports LTE n has quad core snapdragon 600 chip
4. there are various other models for US like at&t, verizon, sprint, tmobile, US cellular, cricket, etc all of them support LTE n are based on same i9505 versions...
hope i've cleared all ur doubts...
