Shut down wifi when you're sleeping.

Wait for an update as 4.4.2 screws up battery life.

Try to buy a new battery and keep this one as backup. I tried that and the new one gives twice the backup.

Have a nice day.

> In reply to [deleted post]No. Radio isn't supported. But portable radio is quite cheap. You can buy it.

Also you can use wireless bluetooth headphones. They have radio.

Worst phone ever.Startd giving problems within first 3 days.Overheating, switches off on its own, poor battery.Also the samsung service station people are a pain.Facing problems in replacing the phone even when it is within 7 days of warranty. Dont buy this phone.Pathetic. Waste of Money!

I am an s4 user with 4.4.2 kitkat update for some time now.

I was a galaxy s3 user before I apgraded to s4 which I prefer far to the s3 for soo many reasons.

my personal experience with s4 are:

1.with heavy usage my phone gets warm. This is normal with all smartphones. NOTE: too warm to hot calls for concern.

2. With heavy usage I get between 10 to 12 hrs of battery life ordinarily I get around 1d, 8 hrs on battery.

3. has never experienced lags or hitches with my s4 unlike s3.

4. I like to have a phone that can function just like my laptop so that I wldnt have to travel with it. That's why I love Samsung's flexibility especially usb-o.t.g. so that I can keep my docs. n copy at will n also connect to pc without issues, n it's perfect.

I think this is my experience so far. I hope this is helpful u can share your experience as well.

NOTE:I use the international model. made in Vietnam for Samsung.
