So, do I need to say f**k Sony too? My Xperia Z is laggy as well, it lags when playing Asphalt 7 and Dead Trigger.

But never mind, the lag is not a big deal, I can live with that.

Maybe........wait, what is X lag?

So, if a LG Optimus G lags, we can call it an O lag feature? If a HTC One lags, we can call it an O lag feature as well?

That makes sense! xD

XZ lags when playing games??
Gs4 lags because of too much animations and unfinished software optimizations but it doesnt lag in games..And d s.update kicked out almost all d lag issues as what my friend said..
Htc got some tricks from apple in 2012 and thats why sense5 came to be as smooth as ios.
Hoping that sony and samsung wud got those tricks also :)

Well, that would be weird lol, Apple helping improving Android. But well it could happen, because there are some companies like Mercedes Benz that released some engines and optimizations to third party companies like SsangYong Motors.

black is nice. but more colors to choose from is always better! except is they make brown... that was horrible. i wish there was a way to pick the exact color of your phone though for the freakin price tag!

You are right, it's better to have variety. This year seems like we are going to have amazing accessories for the S4, just by looking case makers, we can see how important is samsung now a days, and that's good because i feel that i have more ways to customize it, lol.

Hey idiot! The GS4 does not lag or have baterry issues. I own it and so does my brother. We have not once had such a issue with this. If people do have an issue with this it is either blind hate or a very small minority of people.My phone last a continues 11-13 hours with heavy use. 4G is always on plus I havnt had a chance to use my spare battery yet

relax... don't be angry right now your S4 still the fastest android phone,

woow your phone can last a ''continues'' 11-13 hours with ''heavy use'' and 4G always on damn your phone must be a ''special edition''

because last time i check on gsmarena battery test the snapdragon version with the latest update only last about 7:24 minutes of ''continues'' web browsing

And if your phone is Exynos version the Cortex A15 must be super duper power efficient, because it can last 11-13 hours on ''continues heavy use''

Yah but htc one and gs4 are equal maybe..
Sense 5 is d fastest android skin when it comes to fluidity of d interface, gs4 is d fastest when it comes to heavy stuffs including web browsing(phonebuff's comparison)

Frostdanny ddnt say that he is browsing d web continuously, maybe there is a strong 4g signal in their place..
And knowing that 4g goes to sleep when ur not using it, there will be significant time that battery juice doesnt deplete at all.

hahaha...... what are you trying to say
just stop your BS okay..!!!!

the ''fastest'' mean the fastest CPU and GPU in real life other phone can be better than S4

he said ''CONTINUES HEAVY USE''

i've read his comment #19 it just average use not ''heavy use''

27. kclgphilsbsa (Posts: 765; Member since: 21 Jan 2013)


huhh? did i say something wrong about that fastest chuchu??,, i just explained the meaning of fastest in real life scenarios as what the reviews are saying

yhup Continues Heavy Use, and why bother use the 7:24 result of Continues Web Browsing.. Continues Heavy Use=Web Browsing?
the new battery test of gs4 also includes 18:03 for talk time and 12:30 for video playback
and 69hrs standby(sorry off-topic)

28. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)


why bother???
because he said ''CONTINUES HEAVY USE WITH 4G ALWAYS ON''

turn on all the S4 feature and do some heavy use with 4G always on. you will have these feature :

S Lag, Plastic Microwave, and i'm sure you will need more than one battery for one day

its okay i know samsung fanboys always (off topic) when they argue with me

29. SonyFindOneDroidple (Posts: 479; Member since: 11 May 2013)


Continues heavy use w/ 4g always on
The dude also mentioned some possible reasons for longer battery life, the place might have a very good 4g signal and 4g will go to sleep when not in use(even the 4g is on)

Then you turned out to be a stupid hater again. You are making this Phonearena a place of evil haters.

I think you are more off topic than them. I observed a lot of articles, and straight and one on one arguments which you are involved into, you're pathetic hater with nonsense comments and Sony-based feedbacks

yes how many time i have to said i'm GS2 user who hate samsung fans and my next phone will be Nokia or Sony.

i'm hater but not stupid and closed minded like you why because you can accept the truth,

i never off topic cuz i replay what stupid samsung fanboy says

so when i said about the truth you say thats nonsense oh pleaseee....

you and other samsung fanboys bash HTC One, LG, iphone5 and Xperia Z

like talking about GG3 but even without GG3 a fragile iphone5 can be more durable than S4

how about that S4 will not overheat because it uses plastic (PC)

Samsung amoled is the best diplay??
display mate said its on par with last year IPS LCD
and the list continues....

I'm samsung user who bash samsung just because samsung stupid fans keep talking BS (like S4 will survive 11-13 hours with heavy use and 4G always on)

Me? Oh? Im always reading PA but i am just a newbie in posting comments, so your excuses are flop :) and why should i bash those phones if i like all of them.
If you find those fanboys annoying because they are bashing phones, then it is not smarter to do the same.

I see, the overheating issue you have.. i read the thermal test of galaxy s4 and the result is very good but haters came to bash the result and provide the opposite.maybe the fanboys just defended the article.

S2 and other amoleds except note2 and s4 have f**king displays, yet Amoled is still the best display for them and for me too because we want how vibrant it is, different screen modes and not because of natural colors

Samsung Taiwan and Samsung Singapore.
an international company is always an international company.. A fraud can always escape. An error can always occur. An accident can always happen. Same with Samsung, Samsung Taiwan and Singapore management might not be so well-rounded, but it doesnt mean Samsung International knows everything and tolerates every bad thing.. Greed is a common thing. Pressure is a common thing. Profit is a common thing in all businesses..

The company is not ruining your life. The company did not do anything to your and my beloved Sony. If you are affected with the fanboys actions, dont act like you are one or worse than them..

No!! Error, Fraud and accident..
Those are just some examples that i have given that some things might not be detected by the top management looking at the business segments..
Those paying trolls and stealing pictures arent errors, fraud or accident. These are immoral acts of the business segments-Taiwan and Singapore.. don't make your own story about what im saying

Just because you cannot see within me the likes of you makes me a fake Sony lover?

Your phone lasts a continue 11-13 hours with heavy use, you said "heavy use", everyone knows how to say that, including Samsung fanboys, and you said "4G is always on plus", come on dude, with 4G, it drains your S4's battery very quickly.

You should do some research before calling someone an idiot.

Many S4 owners are frustrating about those battery and overheat issues, and you called them blind hate? Wow, you must be mad!

How are you going to tell him how his phone works? Are you there with him ever second of the day observing him use his device? I didn't think so. Jus chill out and deal with it. If his phone last a continuous 11-13 hours, be happy for him. No need to flame him.

I always use Instagram app and Flipboard app Netflix and I text all day during work thats what my "heavy usage" is and I have personal experience because unlike you I actually own the phone. Many S4 users complain? Thats crap. I run a cell phone skin business in a big mall not once has a S4 user complained ownly praised it. I actually like htc better then samsung im not a fan boy. I just think you are a huge idiot saying that without any actual real hands on experience and its just htc nerds blind hating on the GS4. I would have chosen the One over the GS4(Removable battery is a plus) but battery life killed it for me with all my past HTC phones( Incredible Rezound DNA)

I've had my S4 for a few days and it's both faster and laggier than my S3. But I'm sure the lagginess is software related, most likely, Samsung's Touchwiz for S4 is the culprit. I'm sure this will be fixed by future firmware updates.

It's faster in terms of app load time, but is choppier in certain animations or transitions. I feel that my S3 is smoother when switching between apps, scrolling, etc.

Overall, it's not that bad, at least for me. And again, it'll be and have to be fixed in the near future by Samsung.

And, Instagram needs to fix the S4 version as well. It sucks not being able to use the HDR feature because of the green pixels bug.

For me the major problem was the CPU governor (On Demand), that's the one responsible for the major lags, if your phone is rooted, you can download a CPU Tool, like CPU Adjuster and create a default profile using the Interactive governor and the scheduler as Noop, after i changed that, my phone definitely feels awesome, i'm sure they will release a software update for fix, they need to refine the kernel and some modules, sorry if maybe you can understand this, i'm just trying to help you. The good news is that we have in our hands a great piece of hardware. The funny thing is that many people love to change the launcher, etc. but i like touchwiz, with my old Note 2, i used to have CleanROM a custom rom based on a stock one, but improved and refined.

Anyway kudos to htc for bringing sense5-the smoothest android skin.
