Bought this beast yesterday, i saw the price drop at shop, i was skeptical about this phone, meh what so special compared to my s2? well Once i got it in my hands, my mouth was like, oooooooooo, its really amazing, battery is very strong, the full HD display give amazing colorfull images! 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!

AnonD-113400, 06 Aug 2013I bought my S4-9505 on april. i just bought another s4-9505 to my friend last week. I compared... moreYou might be comparing the S4 I9505 with S4 I9500. 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.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2013I buy him efore 10 days, amazing smartphone, batery not good, maximum 1 day if you doig someth... moredeactivate other features that u dont want to use like hand gesture smart stay etc. and put it in power saving mode. and if you are not browsing the net or using internet, u can turn off your wifi.
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
AnonD-110047, 25 Jul 2013I noticed that whenever I used Chrome on my galaxy S4, it became so hot but with S4's default ... morei have an s4 with default internet browser and preinstalled chrome. but im not sure about IE. my windows desktop got an IE though..
AnonD-170921, 31 Jul 2013I also have the exact same heat problem with both out of the 2 handsets ive had.. does this ha... moredude it is normal. powerful cpu heats alot. imagine 4 cores running inside s4. our phones does not have a cpu fan. so it is normal to feel the temperature on the back.
Yingyang, 31 Jul 2013Want to hear another sad story? Have you heard that samsung is cheating on their bench marks? ... moreyour apple is crapple.
overpriced feature phone
yeah right, retina display..
btw how big is your icraps screen?
yeah aluminum, but it does not give you
a good performance.
simplicity? thats a BS excuse for not having a quad cpu and a big RAM. icrap cant even connect to a flatscreen tv wirelessly.
go lick your additional row of icons lol!
id rather buy asha 302 than icraphones.
i have GT-I9505 i did the update but still android 4.2.2 not android 4.3 beside the processor is 1.9 Quad core not octa core. Why is that.
but it is a great device.
AnonD-47520, 04 Aug 2013HELP..... probably a really daft, thick and stupid question but on here and other websites its... more4.3 for google version only yet. .worldwide .. so keep checking for update ota or via kies ..
HELP..... probably a really daft, thick and stupid question but on here and other websites its going crazy that the Samsung s4 is getting the 4.3 update.... but states the 'Google Play Edition' I live in the UK so am I wrong to think that could be my phone that going to get it? or is it a different version from another country?
does anyone notice when u remove the back cover the back of left corner is thinner than the right , even when u have the back cover on the left corner bend a little ,what kind of build quality is this
I recently bought Samsung Galaxy S4 - I9505 from Phones4U in UK. So far so good. Phone seems to be very high in design, quality and performance. However in my 16GB phone , the free memory was around 9GB. After my research I got to know, its built-in applications use more than 40% of internal memory. So it's good to purchase a memory stick when you buy this phone. Battery seems to be really good if you are an average internet/facebook/youtube browser. If you browse internet for continuously battery won't stay for at least 3-4 hours.. One other thing, actually this is a tip, wifi eats less battery power compared to mobile data. So it is always good to switch on to your wifi instead of mobile data whenever you need to browse the internet.
Good luck people!

yingyang, 03 Aug 2013Your response is far from my point. yingyang- ur point if any is off focus ..pity ..u cannot see the harsh realities of all HANDSETS MAKERS and POOR CUSTOMER SERVICES ..but u have only one mad bad obesssive point ? bash samsung wily nily .
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2013Which has better battery life? S4 or i5? The S4.
Yingyang, 31 Jul 2013Want to hear another sad story? Have you heard that samsung is cheating on their bench marks? ... moreWhat does Apple offer in terms of quality? Nothing. Their phones are over-overpriced and have weak batteries, average cameras, and the OS is actually worse than a featurephone OS. Simplicity is no substitute for functionality.
