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.
its all over very good mobile phone today,but we can't ignore other's mobile latest features like in micromax ,they have today latest feature of playback 3d video without using 3d glass, oh god this very very latest feature that increase our entertain level, so wake up samsung your upcoming mobile like not 3 ,s 5 , should have this feature otherwise noboday want to buy your mobile.

You might not have a good 3G coverage in your area that's why when you switch to GSM only, it does the trick because I think mostly in your area is obviously covered by GSM/2G.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2013Which has better battery life? S4 or i5? I'm using both, Found S4's Battery is far better than iPhone.
Yingyang, 01 Aug 2013It is still cheating. Why make different frequency on the bench mark? To impress people? But w... moreyingyang- how many other handsets makers and networks- overclaim -mislead-make false promises and give very poor and arrogant customer services and grossly overchgarge and hide behind legalised frauds and corporate lawyers liars under the noses of lawmakers-politicians and consumer rights organisationns -- usa canada uk france germany japan china india korea saudie arabia dubai etc etc ? so whats the remedy ? ever heard of CORRUPT CROOKS -WORLD BANKERS -CORPORATE TERRORS ? ALL TERRORISING HELPLESS CONSUMERS ..
I used galaxy tab 10.1 earlier, it also used to heat up so easily. Seems it is problem with samsung.
I'm getting random "Not registered to network" / "No service" message. Have to restart the phone to make/receive calls after that. FYI ... Theres no LTE in my country.
Here's what I tried so far.
* New updates
* Factory reset
* New SIM (same network)
Choosing "GSM only" mode from mobile networks resolves the issue.
I9505 Nice Guy, 01 Aug 2013I've got no protector w/ my galaxy s4 i9505 and is always in my pocket but hasn't got any scra... morei also place it in my pocket but it has cover.i know its hard to believe.. i used samsung galaxy note n7000 and i put it also in my pocket and never been scratch.i must say i was shock because its gorilla glass 3 and it was scratch so easy..i am in a line and i did not purchase it from a cellphone store
Tcool, 01 Aug 2013Not so fast Yingyang, however, for Samsung did not see it prudent to clam up and claimed innoc... moreIt is still cheating. Why make different frequency on the bench mark? To impress people? But when you are playing games. It's different? Not giving you what they've said on the benchmarks? See all I've said are true. The s4 is fast on those kinds of test. But in the real world. See what happens. You have just copied the response of samsung on that issue. Of course they are trying to defend their product. That's why they are making up those kind of response.to re direct peoples Reactions.That's their marketing tactics. Huh!
