The shameless google has imposed restrictions on SD card usage in android 4.4 onwards. Did anyone know about this?. Search google with the keywords 'microsd card access problem in android 4.4'. Then you will come to know.
The restrictions (when the memory card is used in android 4.4 (or later) based mobiles* are :
> Cannot copy or move files and folders from internal memory to SD card.
> Cannot receive files to memory card (via WiFi or bluetooth)
> Can only download files (not via torrent softwares) to memory card.
> Cannot create a folder or sub folder in the SD card.
> Cannot copy or move files within the SD card.
> We can only read and format the SD card and set the storage for camera pictures and videos to SD card (not to specific folders, just in common).
> Usage of all file managers is restricted.
* means - not via card reader.

S . SUDHAKAR, 26 Feb 2014Please read the user opinion in Samsung I9300 gsmarena area. Have you tried searching it in go... moreI researched on your point further, and I found that the native apps, like the File manager, Camera, etc are able to write in the SD Card, HOWEVER, I just noticed that the default path of Automatic Call Recorder which was earlier in external SD has changed to emulated storage, BUT we can still move that file in the SD Card using the in built file manager, and the native voice recorder still uses the SD Card to record the audio...
So, not a conclusion, but its rather a suspicion for me that post the Kit Kat, the third party apps might not write into SD Card, however, they still can be moved to the external storage as a whole.
It means 4G runs in some parts of India.Basically this phn is for Indian version doesn't hs 4G..
Gash2401, 26 Feb 2014No problems at all, working as it was before the update.Please read the user opinion in Samsung I9300 gsmarena area. Have you tried searching it in google?. Are you able to copy files from phone memory to memory card* and via bluetooth / WiFi to memory card*?.
* means - without the help of a PC or laptop.
My frustration is on the battery. It let me down when I needed it most, unable to charge no alert what so ever. Sad for days, mind you the phone is expensive.
one of the worst quality phone used in my life. dont buy this one. two times i changed its battery but still its unable to use. Xperia SL is far better than S4.
