    I have a lot of lags and slowdowns in many emulators especially gbc and n64 emulators. I have very powerful phone (i9506- 43000 score on antutu benchmark) but the emulators on this phone works worse than on my psp or 3ds. Is this supposed to be like this? (the battery save mode it turned off) btw my android version is 4.3

    n64 emulation is terrible on android, the fastest phones in the world will not fix that.

    As for GBC, make sure you are using GBC.EMU as its the best one. Also, make sure the S4 is a 60hz device (I cannot find out if it is or not). If it isn't, then you need to use retroarch and match emulation to refresh rate to take out the stutters.

    How the hell you manage that, according to Antutu the fastest phone can only hit around 43287 (HTC One M8t) I only manage 29685 and ive got the exact same phone as you

    Well I don't think we have the same exact phone. Because my phone is model i9506 with has improved cpu and improved gpu. You have I guess i9500 or i9505. I put here the photo of my last antutu test result. and thanks krist...77, I will try to do what you said.
