  •  A phone worth to buy 02 May 2014

    5/5 stars

    By SaNdeep SinGh

    Samsung galaxy s4 a phone that has all features that make it the best Android phone ever !! I owned it and was smooth to use !! pros: 1-) The 13mpegapixel camera works awesome . 2-) A superb screen with a brilliant size. 3-) The speaker are audible and does not produce loudness and the expendable memory is a good option. 4-) The octa core processor is the biggest pros. 5-) The 2600mAh battery provides a good backup of 7 to 8 hours on heavy use like games ,video streaming and net surfing on a continuous use cons: 1-) The eye gesture feature does not work properly 2-) A little bit high price (if u can afford its best to buy)

    4/5 stars

    By Vivek Reddy

    incremental update from samsung ..its nothing but galaxy s3 with a lot more bells and whistles .. coming to the build quality its still that cheap looking and feel plastic but it feels light in hand ..but when i used it for a week every one asked me " is it s3".. i was very sad that after spending a whooping 41k all i got is a s3 looking a like ,,man i hated it,,so i shifted g2 (absolute beast and great smart phone) quality over all should have been better ..coming to software section i never liked the touch wiz interface ..its slow,buggy and very sloppy ,,and bloatware with it is simply a waste... it takes up a lot more of space in phone memory ,,but other feautres are okay ,,the s4 came with many other features like when we look away the video stops playing etc,, those are just added bonus that we dont use ..but overall for touch wiz fans its okay.. but for others i am not so sure ...the camera is department also is not so great in low light conditions its simply very crappy there is more noise added to the pics but in good light conditions its okay .. so the camera department is both negative and as well as positive for the phone ..the amoled screen is simply amazing ..colors are bright but the whites are bit saturated ..but the screen is amazing..the processor department it is simply superb ..with 2gb bundled with that quad core snapdragon processor multitasking is simply great .anything we throw at it ,, it takes with ease but still i said it is slow downed with touch wiz interface ,,battery life is also good its decent battery back up.. call quality signal reception and connecting options are great ..even in low signal areas reception is good so summing the every thing we get the below points Good Brilliant HD screen Great performance Decent battery backup Good camera (except low-light shots) Bad Same old design that doesn't feel premium Camera is not good at taking low-light shots No FM radio Major portion of internal storage taken up by Samsung apps i would recommend this phone for users who are looking for oohs and ahhs when they take their samrt phone in public and also samsung fans but for others we have other optioons like HTC one and LGg2 (try this phone simply amazing)

    Phone was updated during night which totally messed up my apps and TouchWiz. Couldn't do anything and now I am forced to get another phone. Thank God have insurance but feel was not a fault of mine. Will try to call company but not sure if can get it fixed. Went to my carrier who said contact Samsung.

    By tushar patel

    I've been using samsung s4 for last 1 year.I would like to tell you the accidents it suffers.5 or 6 times it slips out of my hand but still dispite of some scratches it does't get much damage.I am a hard core gamer.I installed all the high graphics games like aspahlt,modern combat,fifa14 etc. but all runs smoothly. I also connected Zenga controller with my phone and games are running smooth.Camera quality is just awesome.You are gonna love the clearity and the sharpness of the quality.It's simply amazing. I had seen every phone in the market lagging but this phone never lags.Despite of heavy use it never turns you down. If you want to put your money on some big budget flagship i advice you to go for S4... ;-)
