Is there a way to disable all new software and camera functionality it's very intrusive
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2013SAD FAN.. 20 millions s4 owners DONOT share ur SAD BAD views .. iphone 6 is due out in FEW mo... morethanks for your post, I don't advice anyone, it is an opinion based on FACTS, FIGURES and most importantly expert analysis, such as JPMORGAN the top financial body who declared the GS4 sale is dropping like a stone, beside, where are those fans who are truly enjoying this phone? why they are not here with force when GS2, even GS3 came out and everyone supporting how great phone they were against the competitions, and they were at the time!
but sadly for GS4 it is not longer the case, competition has catched up and passed galaxy series, because Samsung decided to make a mass market phone with NO INNOVATION, NO NEW IDEA, NO FEEL GOOD FACTOR, AND NO FM RADIO, battery drains like a sink, same plastic rubbish body as GS3, those who design this piece of rubbish should be ban from any smart phone company to ever practice! why?
because they have not come up with anything innovative or different! who cares about processing power beyond GS3 processor , average user what to see something which STANDS OUT, do you understand what that means surely NOT,
GS4 will keep hunting Samsung for years to come, they absolutely put NO EFFORT to make this phone, and all you need to do is to look how FORWARD looking the competition is standing against this plastic brick!
sad day for Samsung , sad day for me as a owner of GS3. I returned my GS4 only after 2 days of used, as it offered me nothing NEW

the firmwares in order from oldest to greatest order are.
MDD(IDK the exact name. this was the earliest firmware)
MEA(this almost fixed all prob. and brought apps2sd and HDR video)
MF5(i have this install. excellently stable and cool device)
i am going out of town for a week and won't be available.
Just bought one, great phone, the screen is very impressive, looks like my sight were improved. Besides its bigger than my old phone, it fits better on my pockets. My complain till now is the camera software, it lacks some sort of settings.

KK, 03 Jul 2013How do i find out if my Samsung Galaxy S4 is genuine? Please help.Is right that the screen glass is easily broken ?
S4 is an excellent cell, covering all the expects, and we take it best cell ever up till now, really its a companion.

I wish Samsung could improve their customer care service. I tried to chat online with a customer agent but always it gave an error that " no agents available". Also there is an option to send ur query directly to technical support people. In that we have to select model number from a drop down menu & guess what s4 isn't even listed in it. God knows when they last updated that list...
sad fan, 04 Jul 2013thanks for your advice, phone is not my life, but I refuse to be fool by Samsung to sell me GS... moreso u r shouting coz S4 is just an S3 wid a new dress?? well both have different version of arm processors, S4 has latest, while screen is full hd on S4, camera is 13mp against 8 on S3... OS is latest 4.2.2 out of box... screen size is 0.2" more... its a big upgrade over S3... how u can say its same as S3... may be dimension wise its same but looks wise also its a bit different n better than S3... so if u dont wanna buy it then shut ur mouth coz consumers have choice n freedom of whatever they wanna buy....
KK, 03 Jul 2013How do i find out if my Samsung Galaxy S4 is genuine? Please help.install antutu benchmark and test your phone's score. if its between 25-30k than its original.
tip: restart phone before test
gadgetz, 03 Jul 2013Hello Shubham,
Thanks for the advise buddy but even with kies it says the current firmware ... morenow I think you have three options left:
1. try kies lite.
2. try for some days. I think the rollout or server will be overcrowded
3. go to samsung official store. they will update your firmware.
