I bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) paying a whooping amount of INR 41,500/- on 08th July 2013. Within a week I suffered Mobile Network Signal Drop (NO SERVICE - ERROR SEARCHING NETWORKS) & Call Drops!!. I tried replacing my SIM card and trying other network provider's SIM too. But the problem persisted. I also researched the internet and came to know that many of the users have the same problem! It's definitely a handset fault. I contacted Samsung Customer Care on 16th July 2013 and they said that as a policy they could not replace my Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500 as it has crossed 7 days period after purchase (NOT TO MENTION...RIDICULOUSLY SAMSUNG INCLUDES SUNDAYS TOO, EVEN WHEN THE CUSTOMER CARE CENTERS ARE CLOSED!!) Failing to solve the issue even after updating my software, now they have provided me with the option of replacing the motherboard of Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500). My charm of buying such an high-end phone has been completely lost and left me shattered fearing any more loss after motherboard replacement! I feel cheated buying a Toy of INR 41,500/-, when Samsung cannot even provide a stable BASIC necessity. It's even more sad for me since I have still not started paying my monthly installments! ( At great loss here buying this phone. I DO NOT recommend Samsung Galaxy S4 to anyone, unless you want to waste your hard earned money. Can anyone provide me with a solution to this?

all these damn samsung phone''s have same old look, got bored of this look...samsung seriously needs to rethink its design, from 11000 mobile to 40000 mobile all have same old look.. irritating its no use of seeing photos of new phone's of samsung , just reading the specs will be enough , all have that cheap plasticky body even after  paying 40000 for a phone, we get only plastic whereas htc gives premium look and unibody alluminium , that looks like a costly phone not this one,.what is the design department doing sitting idle, samsung must fire them...

Isn't it too early to launch the S4 mini? They are simply killing the market share for Galaxy S4 in their hurry to keep launching newer products. This is one idea Samsung could have done without.

BharatSrinivasaraghavan no its not early. as its no competition to s4 as s4 has 2 quad core processor and 2gb ram, this 0ne just has dual core and 1.5gb ram.....

this is soo cool for buyers looking for a smaller screen as compared to phablet sizes.yes dual core is a disappointment in new era of phone culture.still this will make a mark like the s2.

s3 still wins over it.fortunately/

MaazSurti  because people have deep trust in samsung rather than asus or lg powered nexus.it is the same trust we had in nokia in 2000s decade. make a visit to my art gallery, www.inspiredbyalmighty.in

S4 mini is equipped with snapdragon 400 and with krait 300 and not 200! but hey yeah SP will kill s4 mini in graphics performance. Processing wise its the same. resolution and screen size is also great in SP 4.6in 720p vs. 4.3in 540p. so yeah it will be stupidity for them tho price it 25k when a much better SP is already in the market at the same price.

RishabhTank samsung has better camera algorithms and good developer community to bank upon. but true this pricey,the price is close to xperia sp and dangerously close to last years flagships galaxy S3 and one X.

xperia sp is better at this price as it comes with dual core krait 300 and adreno 320,while s4 mini comes with krait 200 with adreno 305.also sp has Bravia hd display.Samsung should have placed it at rs 18000,competing with Xperia L rather than Xperia SP.
Also Xperia SP has beaten likes of Galaxy S3,HTC One X,etc in performance.
only place where s4 mini is better is amoled screen,camera and some touchwiz tricks.
