S4, 16 Jul 2014Dear Darkgamers,
Juz wanna to ask, i already change my firmware by using a firmware under v... moreYes, you may face problems with updating.
Now you can't directly install updates via kies if it's not available in Germany and in Malaysia.
However you'll have no issues in functioning.
I advice you to flash the firmware of your own region to get regular updates for your region.
Not necessarily though, as you'll continue to get the update when it lands in Germany.
IF you get any problem with updating firmware, either flash it or go to service center. They'll do it for free.
Have a nice day. Sorry I don't know the exact info about this.
Juz wanna to ask, i already change my firmware by using a firmware under vedafone from Germany, but i bought this phone n im staying in malaysia.
Thats any problem i will facing any problem in future if i use this firmware?
darkgamer, 15 Jul 2014Actually the question is, why would you want 4.4.4???
The difference between 4.4.2 and 4.4.... moreYeah that's so true,Samsung rocks in software and stability issues unlike Sony. S4 is really a great buy,yesterday evening i used it like hell,facebook,whats app,viber then watched some videos still it had 46% of juice left in the morning,highly satisfied with it's battery life it reminded me of my Lumia 720 which had equally good battery life.
Thanks for the information bro.
after updating 128 mb latest softwer some problem on screen
screen was flashing and dont work proper
please give solution...

The difference between 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 is only a couple of bug fixes in stock android. Samsung already has fixed those bugs and now we don't have any of those bugs on 4.4.2. So it's practically 4.4.4
The reason sony had to do it is that sony uses a lot of stock android in their UI.
The difference is just copying and pasting a few lines of code. That's why sony is fast.
Sony will be super slow in the next android release.
s4 and HTC m7 got kitkat in february
Z1 and Z ultra which were newer flagships( released in Q3 or Q$ 2013) got kitkat in late april
Xperia Z which was released at the same time as s4 got in in early june.
Don't compare these small tweaks. It takes less than a day to implement them.
And the next OS update s4 will get, it'll get the new touchwiz used in s5 and that takes time to prepare.
I bet we'll get android L faster than even Z2. Samsung rocks in software and stability updates.

M.M.5, 15 Jul 2014Please tell me if I can do the update manually You can flash it manually but that will require downloading the firmware and flashing it via odin. It's a complex process.
If you go to a samsung store, they use the same odin and will update it for free.
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2014I have seen videos of drop tests for both lg g2 and s4? if you own both can you kindly tell me... moreI have dropped s4 numerous times (around 30 times) and there are just small scratches here and there and the screen is intact.
I have not dropped my g2 and I'm not going to as it looks fragile and I don't want to lose it.
G2 has really thin bezels and that means very low impact resistance.
