All of the above are running well on my i9500. Add to that GTA: San Andrea's too.

I haven't tried Fifa14, but the other games run beautifully on my I9500.

I9500:
-Has the best S4 camera with its Exmor RS camera senor (I9505 has inferior Exmor R only)
-Wolfson DAC
-More Powerful GPU
-HD720@120FPS slo-mo video capture.


I9505:
-Plenty custom ROMs
-4G LTE.

Why you don't consider buying the I9506 instead?!
It's better than both I9500 or I9505...

I got I9506 and I'm very satisfied with it... every game runs smooth....

I don't think it's device dependant. It's probably because you need to use this patch if you want games to run smooth.

Samsung should add something like gaming mode(for devices that use this extreme dvfs)for users that dont care about battery when playing games so we dont need to root our devices,this way they are forcing users to root/modify/flash their devices :/

I've GT-i9505 and I'm playing on it all games you said, Fifa 14,Asphalt 8, Iron man, Modern Compat 5,Modern Compat 4. Assassin Creed pirates. Asphalt 7 and finally The Room 1,2

My rating: Perfect in everything and there's no lag. and i think it's better than Gt-i9500 cause Gt-i9505 has 1.9 Ghz processor but Gt-i9500 has only 1.6 Ghz

gpu is open gl es 2.0 only :/ means the upcoming generation of games won't be running flawlessly on this gpu
