not a great option for 41k
By Vivek Reddy | 13 May 2014 | 13 May 2014
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)..build 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)

Samsung is a best phone brand
By Phallus Dot In | 18 Sep 2014 | 18 Sep 2014
Samsung galaxy S4 is good looking smart phone &specially in white color. I purchased it from a local vendor named www.broadbandchandigarh.info with one year free insurance. I would like to say that nothing is comparable with samsung. No doubt Samsung is a top brad which is improving its electronics products day by day & keeps all its products up to date w.r.t latest technologies. Thanks to team samsung

Awesome phone @ good price
By Hardik Vyas | 6 May 2014 | 6 May 2014
This rating gives original review of gadgets so I will glad to write in this reveiw. Galaxy S4 is very good & power packed phone. S4 runs at awesome speed with it's OCTA core processor & 2 GB RAM. It's camera picture quality & different camera modes are innovative. After updating to Kitkat android version, it's speed & smoothness increased. It is tough & durable. It's HD AMOLED screen is awesome. The screen is much better than other rival phones' IPS panel screens. But, as in all android phones, you have to charge it daily. Otherwise, dying battery can really put you on "DANGER". S4 doesn't have FM radio. But, now who wants FM when one can stream through net. This is very good phone for those who wants their OFFICE as well as FUN in their mobile. It is nice phone at good price. This phone is better than other rival phones at same price level.

king of rough use
By tushar patel | 3 May 2014 | 3 May 2014
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... ;-)
