They only are about us buying their products but not with sending us update on time as with other regions unlike Samsung. Please, do for us on time as you are doing for other. I can't wait to have KitKat on my Optimus G Pro (E988).

It's okay, I guess, but I'm having trouble with the email. I signed in my email on my phone, and I haven't been getting any emails that people have sent me, but when I signed into my email on my tablet, I received all my emails. I don't know what it is, at first I thought it was the email, but it's something wrong with the phone...please fix

Hey, Guys.
Iam from India and planning to go for this phone, but my problem is that Iam a big fan of Amoled screens with great colour reproduction but find no other Samsung phone in by budget except Note 2, which is too old and outdated.
I find colours of other screens washed out compared to Amoleds. I want to buy this phone but want to know if it's colour reproduction can be compared to Amoleds or is it like washed out? Also how are the Blacks?
Is the speaker loud and clear?

So this is for people who are experiencing issues while accessing media files after the kitkat update.

Reason: Google acted all cheeky and took off the auto scan feature (used to automatically scan the SD card every time you booted the phone. This was apparently done for a good reason to make it more secure.

I had issues with the phone not identifying the music files on the SD Card. The following players seem to work.

Rocket Player- Has a setting to rescan the device - something I guess you will have to do once you add new music files.
n7player - Has a better interface
Trax Music player - You can access the SD card and play songs in specific folders ( file size is small)

I am sure there are more.

Battery Drain- yes, I faced the issue too. I was crestfallen to see that my phone battery went down from 80% to 2% without any activity (I was sleeping)in 8 hrs. I then drained the battery completely, charged to 100%. For some reason it charges really fast through computer connected USB compared to a proper power connection.

I switched off the auto brightness and installed advanced task killer (scheduled it to kill apps every half an hr)
it has worked and I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will continue. I DON'T want to root my phone as it has been good.

Hope this helps!

Just thank if it solves your problem.
