Got the GS4 10 days ago wanting to upgrade from HTC one X. Apart from wireless charging(s charger with back cover)i don't feel it was a major upgrade.Less heating problems and longer battery life for sure but general feel and speed nothing better. Many times even worse.I face a serious problem now that i think samsung must address very soon.Compatibility with factory fitted bluetooth systems.I have a Nissan JUKE and a MICRA both with gps rear camera and bt and the phone refuses to pair.After a lot of investigation i found out that phones that haven't been updated with the latest software do not have this problem.Any comments or same problems please share.
Thank you and god bless everybody

GLONASS gives me location in seconds without internet connection. The gestures are nice, meh u need a day to configure all the gestures, etc to fit your needs. Worth the price!

They really have different specifications. Or if you're sure that you're comparing the same model of S4, you might want to try to go to display settings and make sure that everything is the same with both phones. And obviously have both be at maximum brightness.
I bought my S4-9505 on april. i just bought another s4-9505 to my friend last week. I compared screen sharpness and colors differences, obviously new made s4 screen much much more clear then old s4. both of them have latest update but display is completely different. get 2 phones and check out..!! My old s4 cant get the same sharpness and contrast same as new s4. Samsung started to cheat people..
Samsung crap thing, I put my Galaxy S2 to record video for some hours and now all photos that I take have a blur in the midle, crap thing.

Yingyang, 22 Jul 2013Why cant samsung build only 1 s4? Cant they put all the features in a big phone? yes they cant. because they have many many more innovations compared to your icrap. go lick your extended row for icons. cant even transfer files using bluetooth because your feature phone doesnt have a bluetooth or infrared.
Hassan, 05 Aug 2013i have GT-I9505 i did the update but still android 4.2.2 not android 4.3 beside the processor ... morewe are using the international version. i9505 quad.
the other one is i9500, the octa version
