The same thing happend with GS3 also .. i assume if we wanna get our hands on Exonys 5 octa phone officially we will have to wait for Note 3 or Order the I9500 online
Sameer Khojla, 12 Apr 2013So what should i buy GT i9500 or i9505 ? plz guide me thanksIf you like to play with 3rd-party roms and mods without issues get the I9505, if you only need stock software then grab I9500.
Sameer Khojla, 12 Apr 2013So what should i buy GT i9500 or i9505 ? plz guide me thanksWell the I9500 will 99% be guaranteed to be better, but will not be available everywhere. Also 70% of the first batch available at the end of April will be the I9505. If the I9500 is not available in your region then you will have to full price order it online. The I9505 is still very good though and will satisfy most

It may be 2GHz, but also only dual core...Although in retro spective it's got Hyper Threading which does simulate extra cores. So they are on par. Though if the A-15's were clocked at 2GHz they would achieve higher.

jon jo, 10 Apr 2013get a life you sad git the s5 is not even in production and wont be for a few years Of course S5 is in production,,it takes 12-18months to bring a smartfone to market..The S4 was on the drawing board and been readied when S3 was released there is no other way to do it..You cant just bring out a phone in few months..
FM is argued about on 19500 forum and some folk work in areas where their is no mobile reception but via fm radio they can get traffic updates and news...These are not always third world countrys hell I live in UK and my hour commute has 60-70% no network coverage but radio often works..Some folk are out in other conditions where their is no mobile reception and fm radio gives them entertainment and vital news updates.

The Exynos Octa is the best processor used on a phone right now, and due to the 2 processors it leads in performance and battery life. We'll see how it performs against the snapdragon 800, but so far it is the best!

im in sri lanka if i bought Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4 LTE phone to Sri lanka can i use it without any problem please help
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2013the I9505 has better connection however its only quad core not octa this is probably the US... moreTechnically the Octa core is just gimmick. Samsung haven't made a real Octa core where all cores work together unlike the single quad core Snapdragon has made with its 600 and S4 Pro. There may even be a chance that the Exynos version might perform a little slower than the one with a Snapdragon chipset since the Snapdragon variant is clocked at 1.9GHz and compatible with all 4G LTE bands while the Exynos 5 Octa core the first quad core with A15 chipsets are clocked at 1.6GHz and the A7 quad core chips are at 1.2GHz and the latter is gonna be used in some tasks like web browsing, downloading and other light tasks a phone will do while the ones clocked at 1.6GHz will take charge of gaming and all other heavy tasks. Being able to get an LTE connection whenever available is definitely a plus rather than seeing a device that has 8 cores but would not render everything that you need coz again, there's a chance that the i9500 variant might not support an LTE band in your area.
