Jeswin, 13 Feb 2014Seriously 1.2 GB update. Did you get an OTA update or you got it via kies. I have not heard of... moreReally. I have no intention of SPAMMING here. I think the update is varying from device to device within the same model. Mine was manufactured in July 2013 and bought in 24th August 2013.
The information that I share here is for my N7100 device.
Wow Samsung kies !! What seemed to be a big big update on kies in excess of 1 gb was just a 21 mb update in OTA and that too without issuing any change log.
To Jeswin and sunils :
My device was bought in India and it is made in Vietnam. My device is getting such updates.
The second and third useless update (1.2 GB each) can only be done via KIES.
I am saying for my device. From your statement, it looks like update size is varying for different handsets in the same model N7100.
Check out Nokia X A110 phone in gsmarena search now.

If y... moreI agree that there is a phone like Samsung I8190 and I9100 matching the specifications that I have told. Those phones have only android 4.1 and are not available now in India as new piece with warranty. There is just a rumour that 4.4.x will be targeted on low end phones also. But nothing is done in reality for such phones.
You must accept the fact that the companies are forcing high end models on to the customers in the name of developing technology.
As I said earlier, I liked the specifications of Samsung I9100 (before buying N7100). But I didn't get that mobile in the store.
Anyway lets wait for Nokia's normandy phone in MWC 2014 and see its performance and battery backup time.
sunils, 13 Feb 2014@ SUNDAY ARE did u update how's the performance battery backup ,is there any lags or what actu... moreAfter android 4.3 upgrading, my device got the below 3 updates :
> 1st update - 14 MB (increased idle standby time by a small amount and no visible changes)
> 2nd update - 1.2 GB (useless no changes in battery standby time and no visible changes)
> 3rd update - 1.2 GB (almost useless, meagre increase in idle standby time only and apps appear to open and close a bit fast - according to me)
No lags. If you keep only WiFi on in flight mode with all unnecessary apps disabled (in settings -> application manager -> all) without using in screen off mode, the battery charge decreases by 1% every 30 to 45 minutes. Before it used to decrease by 3% to 5% for the same time. From this, the idle standby time has increased. In my words, the meaning idle standby and normal standby are different.
The standby time (when using it normally) has not gone even worse. It remains the same that is upto 24 to 30 hours according my usage (in pure flight mode***, auto brightness and all unnecessary apps* disabled, WiFi usage** upto 4 non continuous hours, screen off time at 30 seconds).
* means - all google apps except hangouts and maps, all samsung apps like flipboard etc. Hangouts and maps are closed just by pressing return button.
** means - 4 hours includes browsing for some time and WiFi texting for some time. Using both (browsing and online texting at the same time is rare).
*** means - all radio options (except WiFi) are switched off. I will switch off WiFi too when not using it.
I should put my device to WiFi standby continuously from 100% battery charge (based on the condition marked with * symbol) and see how much hours the battery charge lasts.
Updates - means the releases within the same version
Upgrade - changes to higher version.
I am using note 2 (4.1.2) i can't update it into 4.3

If you like old models it's your liking but the companies think the other way, they go on developing their technology, it's technology every model will be obsolete after some time, accept it.

[deleted post]If you can't understand simple English, I can't do anything. Battery backup means battery backup time. Understood?. I didn't mention external battery backup.

But it was not availablen the stores. The companies are pushing quad core and octa core phones to the customers there by stopping mid range phones. What do you call this then?. Can you get Samsung I9100 or Nokia N8 or Samsung I8910 now?.

What do you actually mean when you say battery back up? If you are talking of how long your battery lasts after charging, it is called battery life. Battery back up means you have extra battery that you replace the other one with when it gets low. That's battery back up. So most times i find your comments confusing. Whether you are saying that your battery life is good but when you put the extra (back up) it gets bad or something. So pls try clarify this next time you wanna post.

Are those features not the reason for buying such expensive smartphones in the first place? Then you have to switch all of them off. Shame!!!
Parbinder, 13 Feb 2014Symbian is history, accept it forget it.....There is nothing wrong in saying the truth about the current android phones.
Note that if android phones continue to give less battery backup, even android may become a history !!!.
I think a phone with 720p video recording and 5 MP auto focus rear camera (with image and video stabilization) and 2 MP front camera (with 720p video resolution) with dual core processor is more than enough for a common man. Poor Samsung I9500. It is getting critics from users that it is overheating and giving worst battery backup than N7100. S4 RIP !!!.
