rsnsvs, 18 Feb 2014Only you are having problem with games and stuff. None of the other users are having it. So ma... moreIt's not only me. I checked gameplay youtube vids with fps meter, and even the authors of those videos were dissapointed. You can't tell me that they optimize their apps for i9505 when half the games on google play are "incompatible with your device i9505". I mean sure you can download apk and data but it lags because its not optimized. Even those that are compatible, get like 30 fps and stutter to 20. Dont come here telling me that I'm lying without any arguments. Are you saying you get more than 30 fps? Are you saying it doesnt drop to 20 or so? I care about facts, not opinions. Just because you dont see lag ddoesn't mean there is no lag, you could have low standards or something, I don't know.
I didn't check YT vids and stuff before buying cause I didnt think a flagship can be so bad. Unbelievable.

None of the other users are having it. So may be you should get your phone checked and stop telling fake talks about 19505 because this is international model and most of the developers are optimising their apps according to it and whereas 19500 is concerned its only us version.
So either you are having a fake s4 or samsung hater because you are writing against galaxy s4 from a month.
I am having a galaxy s4 from may 2013 and having no problem with it. All the games work fine. Not even heavy games like the dark knight rises or modern combat 4 are lagging. These games are nearly 2gb or more. So get a check on your phone.

This model (GT-I9505) is not supported by samsung in my country(Iran).How can I use this warranty? Can anybody help me?
Please see link below:
Contacted some of the game developers, for Vice City, RiptideGP2 etc. and I9505 isn't compatible with those games nor it will be. As far as they are concerned, games are compatible with the S4 (I9500) and that's it. For games that are "compatible" with the i9505, they lag so I sent them email too. Pretty much the same, it's optimized for the S4 I9500 and we don't give a s*** about i9505.
Definitely don't get this phone if you're even a little bit into gaming. I have yet to find 1 game which has over 40 fps and doesn't stutter to 20 or even below. -_-

just got this phone 2 days ago and noticed it kinda lags when scrolling in facebook, and a little in the chrome, Im not amazed with its speed and its dissapointing I feel like my nexus4 was faster. also got 12000 good score in quadrant.
Robert, 11 Feb 2014Any idea guys if its plan to upgrade into v4.4.2 (KitKat)?Korean LTE A version with Snapdragon 800 chips already been updated, should be too long for lnternational LTE version.
recently i purchased SG S4-I9505, i found that the actual memory space available in phone is only 9GB out of 16GB...what the FxxK...!! there are unwanted samsung apps which are preinstalled & which we can not remove or uninstall unless phone is rooted which will result in warranty loss.

Buy a Iphone 5S if you have other Apple products and want to pay a lot for icloud, synchronization options and finger scanner.
If you want a beautiful screen and want bang for buck, you get the S4.
You should buy the S5 only for the screen. You wont see speed differences. Unless you are one of those whiners that find bad things on every phone.
Bought this last november and loving it.fast, 1080p resolution excellent camera and Light... now eversince I upgraded to 4.3 the batt keeps heating up...now my phone discharge 2x faster than usual. And the phone charged intermittently.i need to restart the phone so it can be charged... i dont know maybe its the charging port needs to be repaired... but im fedup of this phone now! Just because its not realiable
I accidentally post this on s4 mini..sorry guys
