Hello Everybody,
I bought an I9500 deep black edition a week ago.
I'm having problem with my air gestures.
When I turn on 'Air call accept' feature, 'Air Browse' doesn't work. However 'Air call accept' keeps working.
And when I turn off 'Air call accept', 'Air browse' starts working.
Are you facing the same issue?

TO manage your battery life...reduce the brightness and make sure you always exit a running app not in use

Anyway, it's not that useful and i don't recommend rooting. I rooted after my 1 year warranty got over.

Have a nice day

> In reply to Sherrymanj155 @ 2014-06-25 20:31 from KIgf - click to reads4 = g2 > z1.

advantages of s4 over g2:

better screen
better camera
removable battery
sd card slot
cheaper

advantages of g2:
bigger screen
faster GPU ( better gaming in very high-end games)
better battery life

Choose what suits you. Just don't go for z1. z1 is really bad in screen, heats up a lot and camera is not upto the mark. You'll regret z1.

After 1 week, come here again if you have problems. Then you can do optimizations that will work.

Have a nice day
