Have had the SGS4 for 2 days now.
My first impression of the display compared to previous SGS3 is... it lacks the contrast and looks very "greyish". Looks excellent in settings for instanse but more smeared otherwise.
Also having problems getting the smart stuff working properly.
Now smart stop wont work at all. Even smart stay is unstable. Never any issues in S3..!
Trying to update software to se if helps but only get the message that: Service not available. The maximum number of downloads is reached. Try Kies. Wont work there eather. Downloads update but wont install.
Guess my unit is a tad faulty.
Software or hardware??
Any thoughts anyone...
With all the good specs, are you able to use it all in your everyday life???
iphone 4s is better among smart phones, simplicity is the best policy..
I think to much moni for plastic phone, Iphone is better qaulity build feel nicer. Way overpriced for a phoney
Does anyone know why there is little to no stock on S4's in UK and Ireland? I called a phone supplier and asked about it and I was told that many S4's got recalled.
Does anyone know anything about it?
Also, the stock issue, is it a marketing ploy or a genuine issue?

geordie81, 10 May 2013that was an ammusing post, i work in a phone store and sell both of these devices and own an s... morefirst of all you have to knw dat in iphone's thre r many bullsh*t restriction and ios is small base platform in cpmparision to androind. its can be runs on 512/1 GB RAM both but in android they requires more and more RAM and after all its a big platform
this is the best phone on the market so far in my opinion, the only problem with it so far i have seen is the damn storage, in the uk there is not a 32gb version available so 16gb only leaves about 8.5gb ish, not very good for installing much in the way of apps and games, considering the size, however one feature i never knew about its the harware camera button, sly little setting tucked away in the phone,for me this is a brilliant setting, means i can use it in more situations now, would really like to see a software update to allow for apps to be installed to sd card or at least the data to be placed on the sd card as the apps most of the time are small,
[deleted post]that was an ammusing post, i work in a phone store and sell both of these devices and own an s4 and my girlfriend owns an iphone 5 and you statement is complete bulls**t, however the person you replied to also chats sh*t, both are highly responsive and do not lag. however since using this galaxy s4 since 26th, i have noticed that if all sensors are running and background apps are not cleared it does cause a slight lag, but this is not samsungs fault, rather it is googles for not allowing for proper app management, so a simple few tweaks speed it back, i also do not use voice control and have disabled it and it speeds up the home button to instant response, out of the box, the iphone 5 is better in terms of speed, but upon messing with the settings and adjusting features the s4 becomes faster then the iphone, this is a fact!
just had a good play on it, not overly impressed. still not good enough to replace iphone. wait for the 5s.
fredjes, 08 May 2013which one should I choose? Iphone 5 or SGS 4? I hear the SGS 4 has lags and system shutdowns?you heard that from an Apple biaattcch ...GS4 all the way

Can you help me decide guys im planning to buy GS4 next week is GS4 worth it? Or should i buy iphone5 instead? Thank you guys for responding.
Traded my iphone 5 for Samsung Galaxy S4. So satisfied and NO REGRETS at all. I can't help but think that it was one of the best decisions I made in my life. ;p
I have both an iPhone 5 and a Galaxy S4. They both have good and bad attributes. Just don't stop being poor and get both.
