Almost the same

Scorpion has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

My S4 went toast, so for money saving bought this one. For the price range, it's one of the best, Huawei P7 was out of stock so... Same one as the regular S4 but better back cover and styling, comes with LTE support and works on HSPA+ as well.

Build quality 8/10 Plastic build still, but better grip due to leather like back. No IP rating.
Reception 10/10 The one real change from the I9500 is LTE support. Same as I9505.
Call quality 8/10 No problems, the same as on a regular S4
Internet 10/10 Chrome works great here, Built in browser allows page save same as Pocket
Multimedia 9/10 Plays almoust everything, though LG UI (on my Gpad) is better with album art recognition.
Camera 8/10 Same as S4, great but no 1080p at 60FPS, and full resolution at 4;3 only
UI speed 8/10 Same old S4, mostly good and fluid. Kitkat (4.4.2) built in.
Everyday usage 9/10 If you loved the S3 your'e home. Coming from other companies think Xperia Z with an Xperia Z2 screen.
Text input 9/10 Had to put SwiftKey,as launguage change is giving problems.Typing itself OK on default, if you use one language, it's not a problem for you.
Display 10/10 1080p S Amoled, 5 inches above 500 PPI.
Battery 8/10 With heavy usage, lasts 2/3 of a day
