There is a triangle binary counter and after you root it, it becomes 1 rather than zero. And you can't make it zero as the app 'triangle away' doesn't work with exynos phones.

I know rooting void warranty.
But, does unrooting validates warranty?

Hi, I have a problem with this phone,it works few seconds or minutes and then turns off.I've changed the battery but it's still the same.When I turn it on that Samsung sign rotates and suddenly turns off.Sometimes it starts to vibrate and you have to take out the battery to stop it.Does anyone knows what may be the problem? Thanks

The battery may degrade in 1 year if you use it a LOT.

A factory reset after a android upgrade is recommended.

Any phone can only focus on subjects greater than 10 cm from them.

I will try it & see if it helps but at the time of purchasing i already have done the factory reset so I don't think it will help...
Lately the charging time is decreasing but...
Does the battery gets damaged in 1 year?
And when I done the factory reset the OS version remain as it is i.e. 4.4.2

> In reply to Oindrilla Sen @ 2014-09-23 16:38 from KAex - click to readOindrilla sen- s4 battery needs No calibration - science .. in fact lithium ion batteries ==no calibration ever by customer .. lets say s4 battery is showing 25% charge remaining - then within a 5 minutes low battery alert sounds at 15% because battery strains and drains when phone is under duress of background running apps .. goto apps and click on running apps- n see several system apps running which also shows which running apps using how much of battery ..
samsung -tech experts are NOT basaed in each city as you think .. samsung tech support is nationalcentres in each country - you can telephone or send email for tech info regarding your s4 .. you can actually email SAMSUNG HQ in korea ..
ps- battery drainages is fact of life in all smartphones 2014 ..power hungry apps ...you are polite and proper .. cheers .
