Low light camera & BluetoothSupport

    All I've read about the S4 and HTC One is the low light camera issues for the S4...has anyone had any issues with it? Is it a deterrent in anyone's mind? Its really hard to cipher through the stuff you read on the net, some people complain just to complain. I know that "user preference" is probably the easiest answer, but has anyone been really disappointed with any of the camera functions?

    Also, has anyone had any bluetooth issues? I'm basically ready to trade out my Bionic because the bluetooth is sketchy, and its a necessary evil for my employment. I'm sitting on Verizon, so its either the S4 or wait for the HTC One which may or may not come.

    Anyone with thoughts or opinions would be appreciated...I searched the forums for low light camera issues and really didn't find anyone specifically addressing it, perhaps that's a good sign.

    Galaxy S4 would have been the best phone if it didn't had any glitches
    Phone restarts more than 80% of times you start camera app and someother problems.

    But infact of all this i love the device, watch the video i'am sharing

    I've only had my phone for a few weeks (like everyone else I suppose) but this has never happened to me and I use my camera every day.

    You are quite right, but I hadn't noticed until after I'd read this.

    I count myself lucky that I haven't had any problems with my phone at all so far apart from the auto-brightness being a bit crap. I can live with that since the phone is pretty much excellent in every other way (or at least those that I care about).

    Having had both the HTC one and the s4, I can honestly say the camera on the s4 smokes the HTC. Low light performance is excellent (for a phone) , provided you use the correct setting. The testers all review the phone on "auto" to make things "fair". In only auto mode, yes, the HTC one had the advantage, but in low light modes, both images looked about the same. In any type of reasonable light, the s4 can just pick up so much more detail. You can also leave the s4 in a auto low light mode and it will detect if the image is low light or not by itself. That is how my camera is set up.

    Here are a couple of shots I took.

    S4 in regular auto mode.

    Image quality has been reduced on both images but gives you an idea of how the phone handles light. Absolutely nothing changed from one shot to the other except for switching modes. Most reviews will only show the first pic since it was with no features enabled, and it would appear that the s4 sucks in low light which is just not the case.
