No one of these app will give you problem.

Have a nice day

have a nice day

If you want monstrous battery life, go for lg g2 32 gb. It has great battery life and even better than galaxy s4.

S4 doesn't have these issues. I confirm it.

Let me post some facts about battery endurance ratings.

Xperia z 44 hours

Htc one 52 hours

Samsung galaxy s4 69 hours

Lg g2 81 hours.

Go for s4 or g2 to get good battery life.

Have a nice day

> In reply to Sam @ 2014-05-20 12:51 from GTh6 - click to readIf you want to update, do it via kies. It actually downloads whole firmware and repairs any broken or lost files. Then secure your data and do a factory reset. And restore your data.

All the things you are hearing is false. I've not encountered these issues. Just the standby has gone low and phone eats more battery when idle and Barrett life is decreased. But believe me, 4.3 is better. Don't upgrade. We'll get a stable firmware in some time and you may upgrade to that.

Still if you want kitkat badly. It's not that bad. Update via kies.

Have a nice day

Hey Xperia Z fanboys,type xperia z in google & you'll see "xperia z full phone specifications gs marena" that's where you gotta go,this is the wrong forum where you're posting praises about your phone,this is galaxy s4 forum.
PS for z fanboys:If you hate s4 soooo much what are you doing here???

This looks more like sony xperia z forum rather than s4,looks like all the xperia z fanboys taking their frustration out on s4. Dear xperia z fanboys we don't stoop to such level just go through your forum,there's no one who degrades your xperia z or promotes s4.
