rcl4444, 20 Apr 2014I'm suspecting battery life is not as good. Only had mine for 4 days so far battery life isn't... moreyou will get good battery backup at JB 4.3 or KK 4.4.2 version. in standby mode it consume only 2-3%. in KK you may experience network signal problem. JB 4.3 is the best for battery & network signal. upgrade your device....
yes there are certain locations in manila where you can access lte networks for smart subscribers for both e330s and i9506 s4 versions :)

Guys... I will change a new phone...
Should I buy Z1 or S4 LTE I9506???

I've received an extra battery for galaxy s4. Is it a extra benefit for me or is my phone not an original one?

I just received one 2 weeks ago. I live in Venezuela, so I've asked for an international unlocked version. In fact it came with English and some Chinese default languages. I'm using the USA English for now because the primary language UI has not the option to download more versions.
Looks great, very slim and fast 2,3 Ghz processor, nice bright colors and the best is the Internet range connectivity. Much better than the S3 I've owned. My home wifi is live even from the parking, some 80-100m distance. Battery life is good, no problem within the 24 hours. Charger is a little bit oversized and sometimes it must stay quite still, if I move a little the phone the USB cable disconnect. However it charges very fast, 100% battery in less than 1 hour and half.
Phone came with Android 4.3 version and interface is great.
So far, I'm very pleased with it.
Some idea how could I obtain the Spanish main language? I downloaded it for the text messages, SMS etc but cannot configure it as main language.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2014how is the batteri life of this phone compared to the regular s4I'm suspecting battery life is not as good. Only had mine for 4 days so far battery life isn't good. I lose 7%-8% per hour on standby - even with a task killer. Screen on I lose about 1% every 2 to 5 mins depending on the app used, even with brightness on auto at -5.
So on minimal use I'm just getting through a day.
My friend has a i9505 and she seems to go all day easily with minimal to medium use. So either I have a dud phone or battery or standard S4 does better on battery.
Have tried a few battery saver apps which made little difference. Started using Juice Defender Plus and getting much better stand by results : 2% to 4% drain per hour. Not much improvement with screen on drain though; now trying out a screen filter and dimming the screen lower than the auto defaults or full min. Jury's still out on this.
Also I get slightly poorer signal strength than I did on my S3... both phone and data. So I'm going to get it checked out for possible faults.
Lastly, it is noticeably faster then the standard S4, however not as snappy as the Note 3.
Luv the phone otherwise, absolutely! It runs rings around my S3 on almost every level!!!
