Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Pushmail (Active Sync) present in this device. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 with good recording features is really good for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500, however good the other features might be. The expandable memory of the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Although the display looks great, the tiny screen size is too awkward to please the gamer or the ardent bookworm in me. Be it reading or gaming, my display is continuously powered on. The AMOLED display, however offers an awesome viewing experience and even saves up on battery. Reading or gaming on a display so sharp and crisp, is really a pleasure. Gaming on the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 with 1.6 GHz is decently fluid, not that exciting though; for the long haul however, I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming. Heavy multi-tasking and graphic-intensive games seem like a cakewalk with the 2 GB RAM of the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500. The Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 with the 16 GB internal storage really talks to me; it understands my storage needs when it comes to my ebook and gaming collection. Even if your smartphone offers good amount of internal storage, extendable memory never hurts and is good to know that there's room left if you need.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 2 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 very cramped. Yes, 13 MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even use this port to transfer music and images. With the 16 GB internal storage I have to choose between which music, movies, videos and images to keep or delete from my phone. I hate to do that and hence don't like phones with average internal memory; a bigger storage is more of my style.
