    I have the s4 I9506 version of the above. bought it second hand from a Korean friend. the s4 is a beast compared to other android phones. I still don’t know the difference from an iphone. well if apple will release a 6 inches, expandable memory and with no compatibility issue phone, il try an iphone.

    South Korea is the fastest internet. philippines is a shameful. even 3.5G in our country is too slow. LTE is not yet totally felt.

    pipoy, ive watched yuga tech’s coverage on the senate inquiry on why we have slow internet. very informative. south korea’s govt and other govt with fast internet speeds, they funded its infrastructure. so its a stalemate between the phil govt and businessmen (globe and smart)the govt panel said they will pass new laws. the Telco reps are good think tanks throwing right back the problem in a good way. that’s what money can buy. good think tanks. there are a lot of variables why we have slow internet. lte is like waiting for the star trek technology of warp drive.
