rcl4444, 20 Apr 2014I'm suspecting battery life is not as good. Only had mine for 4 days so far battery life isn't... moreTheri.e.lovere is an option in drop down window i.e.Power Saving. Its saves lots of battery
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!!!

Rob, 09 Apr 2014Can internal memory be increased from 16gb?nope, but there is a microSD slot, so you can install a 64GB MicroSDHC card
Some batches of S4 come with bad batteries. My S4 Advance had one of those bad ones. It started lumping up, and would disconnect the phone.
Samsung just saw the serial number and replaced it. No problem. This is a great phone, and I think battery life is good. Have screen in 5 middle setting automatic setting and it lasts.
Khairil Fiqri, 05 Apr 2014Just got it a few weeks ago. its written on the original battery 'made in japan' but surprisin... moreHi Mate,
I have ordered one for my self (GT-I9506) and can't wait to have it in my hand's. I got Note 3 on new plan, as it was too big so I sold it.
Just wondering, Android 4.4.2 is available for this (GT-I9506)device to download or not yet?
Just got it a few weeks ago. its written on the original battery 'made in japan' but surprisingly the battery life is great! surpassing the previous s4 models
Using i9506 1 month. It's good phone. Camera also good in day light, low light with flash color gets yellowish. Video camera not auto focusing, need manual focus. Battery backup below average, lasts only 10/12 hours with wifi connected, phone call, sms, browsing and chatting. Super Amoled screen sucks all of battery juice. Overall I am average happy :)
