Samsung Galaxy S4 and Jay-Z to come together during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday
Next to the Samsung Galaxy S4 on the invitation, is a pair of chains that you might normally see around Jay-Z's neck. While the musician has long been associated with the Brooklyn Nets, he recently sold his .15% interest in the team in order to become an agent and represent NBA players in contract negotiations with teams.
Now, you have a reason to tune into the game even if you are not a fan of the San Antonio Spurs or the Miami Heat. If you are a fan of Jay-Z or a fan of Samsung, something is going to happen on Sunday night that you might want to see. Based on the invitation, it would appear that the event will take place at around halftime. The game starts at 8pm EDT on ABC-TV.

i'm starting to realize that the S4 is a half-baked product that wasn't well tested at all prior to release....I have tried various suggestions to keep it from overheating, but to no avail....will sell it as soon as the Note 3 arrives :-(

Its unlikely that Samsung would put their most successful lineup half-baked. Its likely that your device is defective (which is often the case with first batch of manufacturing, if bought earlier). More details would be nice i.e. did you got it exchanged ? Or did you went to store to get repaired ? Or which model it is gt-i9500 or gt-i9505 ? or are you running the latest firmware ?
BTW, I own a GS4 Octa and have no issues with mine !

Mine has the Exynos...my office-mate has the Exynos as well, on comparable activities (like 3 looping-test sessions of Antutu) our unit gets very very hot...with an identical temp. reading of 58 degrees Celcius under Batter Widget Reborn...so NO...my unit is not defective
Try to monitor yours, you'll be surprised...as simple as browsing the web, it gets very hot...regardless of the SoC ...My Note 2 wan't like this

hmmm.... thats interesting I did the same test (3 times Antutu - with no power saving and full brightness & fully charged this morning, all S-features off though) on mine I got about 47-50ish degrees.
Also, I have been doing some reading on XDA and the users are reporting some good temp after the update on 11th june.
BTW, check out this Spanish video (you don't need to know spanish for this) the guy runs the camera for a while and gets about 41 degrees which is almost the same as HTC One.
Lastly, can you tell me what sort of battery life are you getting ? or a continuous screen on time from fully charged ? Mine is about 4.5 hours. Cheers !

I have GT-I9505 running official XXUBMEA. Mine doesn't 'over'heat even before I got the update. It gets warm but not that it gets uncomfortable to hold. I understand that heavy tasks really generate heat and it's present among high-end phones I guess. Samsung Galaxy S4 has a very good heat distribution design.

BTW there's 3 Type of Galaxy's phone since S2
- Made in Korea by Samsung and this the best
- Made in China very good.
- Made in Vietnam the worst.

Oh c'mon samsung keep it professional ...it is a bad idea to get involved with this kind of people..

What is 'this kind of people', if you don't mind me asking? Because we're talking about a business man worth half a billion dollars. You're not very smart, are you?

I don't jump to conclusions about anything. I'm just trying to see where his head is, exactly.

I guess, Live Nation, General Motors, Audemars, Budweiser, The Nets, and many, many other very Large Companies should avoid him too? GTFOH! This guy is a self made Multi Millionaire, Music Mogul/Business Man with millions of fans around the world. This is why Samsung is partnering with him.
