5 & 6. The device is faster with same fabrication (same resistance) and twice the pixels. How can it not get hotter and have similar battery life? It got a little hotter for me than the S3, but only going by buds and staff at my local Verizon that got an S4 rotation.
Besides, I am sticking with my rationalization
I am an objective natured person, so will side with you since you actually use the device and I only tested. You have more cred by default
I hope a 32 is released by VZW, so I can follow up with your same level of use!
You just haven't tested enough games, even with a higher resolution the Galaxy S4 is still faster.
Compare 3dmark scores, it isn't even close.
Galaxy S3 - 2731
Galaxy S4 - 11744
The only way a game would perform the same is if was unoptimized and/or badly coded.
As for heat, ask Samsung and Qualcomm, I really don't care. I game allot on all my devices and they all get warm, the Galaxy S4 is no different and no worse.
