HELLO guys, as i have stated in my previous posts.....i wasnt able to update to 4.3 owing to a firmware problem...when i connected my phone to KIES it was showing NEPAL as firmware belonging to...4.2.2

OK,so today i went to SAMSUNG SMART CAFE they have the ability to update the phone but even there it showed the device is incompatible....well

THEN I WENT to SAMSUNG SERVICE CENTRE and got my phone flashed...they said there was no official confirmation to them on 4.3 AND STILL I GOT 4.2.2 VERSION FLASHED THERE

BUT WHEN I CAME BACK N TRIED TO CONNECT IT IS YET THE SAME NEPAL VERSION N EVEN THE VERSION NOW IS DDUAMDK
WHICH IS A VERY OLD VERSION

how is that possible that service centres too have such firmwares....totally dejected :((

My phone is in service centre guys
After updating to 4.3 the usb port for charging is spoiled. Its not even a month old. I'm disappointed. If this or anyother problem persist. I will sell it and wait for nexus 5 . S4 is delicate.

Antutu score seems to be less in Multitasking , Dalvik and 3D graphics when compared to the standard scores.
when I tested again it showed 17K and 18K in the mrng and Now when I just checked twice its in 23K and 22K.
Not sure what this benchmark app actually does and I lost faith I this now :)

Hello Shubham,
My camera and internet browser wouldn't open as they always freeze whenever i try to open them. I was thinking of backing up so i could do a factory reset, but Kies is unable to back up my messages though it backs up all other contents. Can anyone please help me? I have not gotten update for 4.3 yet

I was very hopeful that contacts lag will be removed fully and there will be no call lag. Worst part is in first two seconds only phone number is appearing and then the name. To me all calls are unidentified for the first 2-3 seconds.
