...what? The S4 is already out. Why are you asking for a picture of it?

I must say I am extremely impressed with the S4s battery life. I fully charged it, took it off charge at 08h30, used it regularly throughout the day while being connected to 3G and Wi-Fi at times and having only power saver enabled. I eventually put it back on back at 02h00 and the battery was on 54% remaining.

Roughly 17hours 30min and not even halfway. Very impressed.

A couple things I've noted after having my S4 for 24 hours:

There is an odd...slowness (or perhaps chopiness) to the device at times, which I find surprising. For example, I'll be scrolling along any given article on CNN.com, and the screen scroll is not smooth - it's kinda choppy, at least compared to my iphone. Is this related to the dreaded "touchwiz UI" I hear so many bad things about? Or just something i have to live with? You'd think the simple things would be done well.

Second is Apps tend to stick a little bit sometimes and can be slow to load. Anything I can do to change that? What's this rooting I hear about? Does that speed things up? I just want the basic apps I use to run quickly. There are like, a million symbols at the top of the device that must be other apps running. Maybe shutting that off would speed things up?

There's quite a few threads on this on xda, others are calling it a stutter. Most get rid of it by turning off a lot of the motion options. I heard the new update fixed most people's but not everyone's.

From what I've read it's only on the snapdragon version, the octa core gs4 is smooth as butter. Apparently Samsung isn't optimizing the snapdragon to their software very well, which is causing some stutter and lag here and there. Once you can root and flash roms that are tweaked on there, it'll be a whole different animal. Unless another update comes out. You shouldn't have to root to get a smooth experience, but it's faster than waiting on the manufacturer to update it.

Reading throught all this post my desire to replace my N4 (battery main reason) for past few months with S4 just disappeared... Would not want to cash out €700 for buggy and laggy phone and especially not rooting it... see no point to be honest as i need "good to go" device out of the box

Wish my N4 had a Note 2 battery...

Go with a note 2 then, you wouldn't be disappointed.

Could also get an extended batt for it. I got my previous s3 with a morphine juice pack extended batt (used in mint condition) and loved it. It took me a while to get over it even when id already had this note 2 and 2 iphone 5's. The s3 and iphones are now sold and ill be getting an s4 to try it out...

Not the case for me.

If it's Internet (stock) or Chrome then I get zero lag.

If it's a random app and I get lag, it's probably the app's fault.

Alright might be obvious but is there an app that let's you turn on and off the tv?
