Complain all you want about the Galaxy S4?s cheap-feeling plastic casing, but the device does have plenty of redeeming features that have nothing to do with its build. Popular United Kingdom-based consumer product testing website Which? over the past week has given the Galaxy S4 awards for being both the fastest smartphone and having the best battery life.
 
In terms of speed, Which? says it put all major smartphone vendors

I'd like to see that as well. Would be interesting to see how much of a tax all of those monitoring systems on the S4 have on the battery. None of this is all too surprising news though. The S4 is clocked faster and has a bigger battery than the One, though it's been proven in the past that this doesn't necessarily matter. Honestly at this point all of the high end current gen phones fly through anything you have to do with little to no lag at all. We've hit the point where we have more than enough power for the OS, and any more power mostly helps in gaming. I'm sure the OS will continue to get new features and grow and will need more power in the future, but I don't think we'll see as many slow phones anymore now that we've hit that sweet spot and even gone past it.

wow, that's nice, 17.5 hours of talk time!

 

6.75 hours of internet use, i wonder what they did to test it, download a huge file, or keep re-loading a web page over and over?

In real world performance I'm sure the difference is hardly noticeable. It is a great phone though. I went with the HTC One this time around. We'll see what's out there next time I upgrade. Battery life is decidedly average, maybe slightly above on this phone but worlds better than on my s2.

Is it? I was under the impression that their OTA fixed the lag issues they had. I know the HTC One doesn't have lag issues and like I said, it's clocked slower than the SGS4.
