Hi guys please can you post antutu stability screens
Basically had two S4's from phones4u, my first was the black mist, which had intermittent faults and in my opinion overheated. This was sent
to Samsung who said that in a nut shell it was fine and the S4's ran warm get over it or words to that affect. As I was unhappy and out of the 28 day return I decided to sell. I was still in love with the S4 so bought another again from phones4u from an ad as an upgrade but I was given the receipt.
This one is the arctic blue version which is really sexy
hehe and I love the look, problem is this one seems to also run hot in fact even hotter than the black mist, I was hoping as the blue model was newer Samsung would have identified the heating issues and built the next batches with possibly better thermal compounds or some other way of reducing overheating. This version also occasionally lags and jutters from time to time, I find when on power saving mode they both ran smoother.
My problem is I only have a few days left on the 28 day return so I want to make sure that I havent been that unfortunate to have 2 brand new s4's that are faulty, I know that the s4's run hot and I know that a lot of people are complaining about smoothness, but how hot is the norm and how smooth should they be?? is the question.
I've had loads and loads of phones including, htc one, iphone 5, S3, various windows phones, so I know how smooth smooth should be.
I would like to root and put a custom rom on but I'm holding out to know if this phone is faulty or slightly faulty so to speak, or if everyones S4 is as hot and every so often jerky, I find internet very jerky especially when using chrome browser simple things like scrolling, its not my wifi as my wifes s3 and ipad mini run smooth or smoother.
On Antutu my benchmarks vary from as low as 21000 to as high as 26000?, I know that Samsung is involved in this benchmark rigging thing but surely thats not right?, sometimes I have wifi on dont know if that makes a difference both to benchmarks and heat?.
When I do a stability test, the top half of the screen gets very hot and normally temps start at 30 and rise to around 40 with a gradual increase, as for the stability it goes from 140 to sometimes 70 (3 or 4 times) it also takes around 15% out of my battery for around a 10 min test.
I have attached screens as luck happens the last stability test the phone went to under 40 as you can see, I charged the battery left it a while then ran the test fresh, please can you run the stability test on your s4's guys and put my mind at rest or help me prove to phones4u my phones running hot.
My firmware is UBMGA - i9505
