I have been using the phone with the new 336 MB update, it is notjust a Knox update but also fixes few bugs. The build number changes from OC1 to OD3. Here are my observations after using the new build for few days: 1. The battery life is better 2. Over heating problem has reduced. It's still there but now much less than the previous build 3. The wallpaper doesn't change automatically to the blue one as it used to happen earlier. 4. The RAM management has improved... though there are still occasional desktop redraws and back ground app crashes. But it is significantly improved. So overall everyone should update to this build (OD3) of lollipop as it is much more stable. Heard that Russia got another update (OD4) which had further improved the RAM management issues. Hope India also gets the update.

Have you cleaned your running apps? Also do you ever re-start the phone. You should re-start the phone once per week and clear your apps running in the background. Other than that you may have a problem and you go to a service center.

i have been using this phone since July 2013 , so far I'm still satisfied with it . I recently had to update the phone to the lollipop and so far it's getting better . This phone is capable of handling most applications without any problems (games & apps).

Moto G 2nd gen has only one advantage over S4-faster and long term android updates.

samsung galaxy is an excellent phone. i have bein using this phone for the past 7 months...everything works smoothly..i hav never experience even a single crash while using this phone..battery life is awesome..it last for 1 day with heavy usage and takes about 2hours to charge fully with original charger..with original battery,charger,and other accessories, i dont think even the so called galaxy s6 will be miles away from s4.

i am confused between samsung galaxy s4 and moto g 2nd gen. the main features should be: 1. good battery backup (can compromise a little) 2. fast phone (fast processor) 3. good camera (please dont just say by seeing megapixels) 4. should be able to play high graphic games smoothly without much lag 5. it should never (almost) lag or hang during basic functions like calling or texting...etc 6. good display resolution and clarity
