ok as promised here are some pictures that were taken last night.

purchased @ satu gadget dot com @ menara pgrm around 10.45pm last night. SUPER THE FKING JAM. JALAN CHERAS or whatever shit road that's called is just a shit road with massive construction going on.
A little i have to say about satu gadget dot com. Service is friendly and reasonably speedy. Seller i met was a nice young chinese chap who handled my sales and was up for every word he mentioned to me in his sales thread here in the forums. So, yeah, that kind of makes him a reliable seller. Kept every promise he made.
Am satisfied and happy with their service. thumbs up and would recommend.
And now the pics....
if you comment about my lousy pic taking and lousy looking pics, remember its almost 11pm. i just wanted to get things done and go home to my bed.
accesories

and finally the benchmark scores

so no more pics. phone was handed to my daughter. i doubt i will ever get to see it again.
First impressions - smoother than note 2. slightly more vibrant colors. reason could also be due to it being late at night and my eyes were playing tricks on me. Quite uncertain but it did felt like it was way smoother than the n7100 with omega+perseus combo.

Lightweight. yeah i could definitely feel that. Bloody lightweight. Its been quite some time since i held a 5" and below. The body is really slim. i could feel it as opposed to what i normally carry out. tested and ran a few 1080p clips. no stutters.

i wish i could tell more about the battery life and the usability and what's different inside. unfortunately for those, you will have to find someone else who actually buys it and use it. my job was just to buy it for someone to use it.

thanks.

Thank you sir! Very useful information to decide whether to get i9500 or i9505..

GPU-wise, it appears i9505 with Adreno 320 is faster :
https://gfxbench.com/compare.jsp?D1=Samsung...alaxy+S4&cols=2

However CPU-wise, from your score vs gsmarena's AnTuTu benchmark of i9505, it appears i9500 is much faster..

i9500 27844
i9505 24716

Source : http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s4-review-914p6.php

Both got pro and con there.. so the deciding factor for me will be how long we have to wait to get LTE S4 in Malaysia.. LTE is important because all major providers in Malaysia are starting to offer it or moving to LTE :
Digi - speed not specified - http://www.digi.com.my/tomorrownetwork/
Celcom - 50mbps - http://www.celcom.com.my/first/data/celcom-4g-lte.php
Maxis - avg 10-30mbps, max 75mbps http://www.maxis.com.my/4GLTE/main.asp

If S4 LTE will come soon, can wait for it for future compatibility.. but if in June.. too long to wait

you are lucky you can even consider LTE or non LTE. for me my home is in gambang. u'd be lucky if you can even see 3g. office kl ampang 16th floor. way past the 3g/2g/lte height mark. so elek also.
