Had this phone since it's launch...2022 and not one day of problems.
The Galaxy S4 is a little underpowered now, but it's a pretty good phone, even for a secondary phone.
.....just spent the day browsing Youtube review.....think the Google S4a is the one I'd go for BUT my S4 is still working OK after 7 years....Does all I need...The only thing is the slow focussing on the camera but still takes very good pics.
Some apps don't run because of old O.S... but as long as I get Google, Ebay, Amazon, Youtube and Gumtree I'm happy.....
Think I'll hold on a bit longer - sorry the Google phone can wait a bit longer 'til I possibly buy.....
Had this phone many years ago and I must say, It's my favourite phone ever! It was so ahead of the time and had many new options, I enjoyed it!!
Anonymous, 16 Dec 2020Can you still get most apps with this phone? I'm not too sure with the current android version that's installed but I know that if you tried installing a custom ROM where the android version is more recent then, it will definitely support more apps than now it currently does

Amazing that this was released 7 years ago, and looks and specs-wise, it still manages to hold its own in 2020. They made (and sold) TONS of these, and "new" old stock is still readily available at fairly cheap prices. Bought one four months ago, rooted it, installed a 128GB card, and couldn't be happier. Even an iPhone11-owning friend of mine was (mildly) impressed when I showed it to him. Another huge plus for me is the removable battery (because, yes, li-ion batts DO go bad fairly quickly).
holiday mode, 10 Jul 2020bought this phone a year ago. Every thing fine till went on holiday Tenerife. Could not get W... moreFix may be as simple as cleaning the wifi antenna contacts. Of course, that means taking the phone apart (at least partly).
9.6 Megapixel stills during video recording. EPIC!
Not even the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro can do that. Still images during video recording on the Note 8 Pro have the same resolution as the video frame, making the feature redundant.
bought this phone a year ago. Every thing fine till went on holiday Tenerife. Could not get WIFI unless in internet cafe. Bought cheap Alcatel works every where. Samsung sat in box.
Can anyone tell me roughly how many years' life one can expect from the battery? Mine is about 6-7 yrs old.
only problem is battery, it's doesn't compatible with other battery even it's fit on body
tried using s3, s4 mini, duos battery but always rejected as yellow exclamation ( can run but can't charge)
Still a great little phone in 2019. Perfect for custom ROMs. Works a treat with bare bones Resurrection Remix ROM or GPE ROM. Takes great photos and spectacular videos (with 3rd party camera app or Open Camera).
This continues to be my go to phone for playing around with or traveling.
