Samsung Galaxy S IV - Page 55

post #541 of 549
Seeing as how the new iPhone 5S is basically the iPhone 5 with a fingerprint detector, I guess I have no regrets buying the Galaxy S4 earlier this year.

Thank goodness I didn't wait for the iPhone 5S.

Ewww.. The iPhone is the last device I'd want. Don't care about it. O_o

Same here. My GPE GS4 has some annoying and weird quirks, but the screen alone is so much nicer than the iphone's.

I was waiting for the iPhone 5S to see what it might bring to the table, and after seeing it's just a faster iPhone 5 with the FP reader and camera adjustments, I decided to drop the hammer on a Galaxy S4 today at BB Mobile.

BB gave me $170 cash for my S3 towards the S4, and considering that my internal flash memory had been a little "flakey" with photos getting corrupted, I'd rather pass it to BB than sell it privately. Smooth deal, I was in and out in 20 minutes.

Me too. smile.gif
I first bought a fake version of the case for 6 bucks shipped from Aliexpress but the only color they had that was not glossy was a dark purple one. (the glossy ones look terrible) It works and looks well for a 6 dollar deal but I needed a premium feel and look so I decided to spend 50 bucks on the original one and, while I think they are pricing it too high, the case is the best I ever had regarding looks, protection and functionality and I would recommend it to everyone who wants more protection. The S-View funcionality is just great, if you havent seen in please watch some reviews of the case. I just whished Spigen made a little hole for the Notification Led , it´s a great feature to loose. Some users first said the notification led dosent work in S-View mode but that´s not true. I am thinking about making a hole myself, probably try it in the fake on first, of course.

I broke my S3 glass twice in some small stupid falls so I wont risk it again. I also first bougth some crappy plastic screen protectors and decided I needed a glass screen protector, which protects from falls also, but was not willing to pay 25 or 35 bucks for one (thats what spigen and other brands are asking) and a user on XDA recommended me a chinese one from aliexpress for only 6,69$, who bought it say its pretty good, should be getting it in a week or so.

Hi!

I'm currently using my S4's internet tethering to use its internet connection on my PC. So I have to keep the phone connected to my PC for a long period of time even after the battery has finished charging. Is this harmful for the battery? If so, what is the solution?

Thank you! smile.gif

Hello everyone!

I've just rooted my phone for the first time and am going to install a new ROM on it.

Can you please recommend which ROM I should use to get the battery to last the longest?

Thank you very much.
