Hi folks, I tried to root my Samsung Galaxy s4 GT I9500 lollipop 5.0.1 using cf-auto root. After the procedure, everything Google stopped working... Constant mgs of apps that stopped working were flashing on my screen, I had to quickly flash the stock OS back.
Then a couple of days latr, I tried philz recovery root... This time I thought my phone had bricked! During the process of trying the philz recovery method, a msg was displayed on Odin that the process failed, I cudn't turn my phone on, so I had to once again flash the stock OS back.
I followed all procedures diligently... Any other suggestions?

You are supposed to remove it after you unbox your phone. The plastic covered the front, back, rear camera lens and side of the phone. Cheaper not always mean it is refurbished. Refurbished phone will be labeled refurbished on their box. Refurbished phone do not always have compromised internal. When distributor discover the original product they sell are either damage or have software problem this faulty product is return to the factory to be refurbished. For example, external scratches, damaged camera lens or faulty software during first reboot will be returned to manufacturer immediately. The factory will repackaged the refurbished product to look like new and sell them with lower price. The price are also different for each of the 16/32/64 gb version. This is only the 3G version. The more expensive one are LTE enabled variant which only comes in 16 and 32 gb storage.

Every damn phone comes with a plastic film over it... It is because, in case any accident happens the phone does not any scratches... Also there are plastic films covering the edges of the phone.... This does not make any difference...

The brightness comparison in the tests done by GSM says that the brightness of S4 is higher than S4 mini. But when I keep the phones side by side, I see that mini is brighter than S4. My first S4 from Amazon had the screen freezing and and at times screen used to get shorter with rest of the area in black. I sold it off and then bought another S4, two weeks back as I really like it's design and high screen area. But a week now and issues with the screen has started. By the way, both of them were updated to lolipop.

If this is original GG3, it should not be needing any such protection, and, I have never seen any phone (except for the cheap basic ones) being shipped with a screen-guard.
IMO these may be re-furbished versions with compromised internals, and may be sold at cheaper prices.
I have samsung galaxy s4. It is overheating. The problem is only at battery, if it connect with internet the battery only can be used for 4-6 hours. But if i dont use it so much it can be used for 9-10 hours. But for the features of this phone is awesome.i never regret for using this phone except the battery. This phone is awesome..
s4owner, 26 Jun 2015Russia has the OD4 update broOD4 is 17 april build like OD3. Almsot no difference.
Whether one has OD4 or OD3, it won't matter. Bugs faced are going to be the same.
Why are not we being given the OE1 builds though ? They are the latest 5 May builds
Hey I got this phone..but the battery life on my s4 i just can use it 4-5 hours only should i buy new battery or it is normal?...wifi,bluetooth and gps is off..and mobile data is always on..and when the phone is full charge..i use less than 30 minutes the battery goes to 75%..any solution??
A lot of countries has even received HOE1 lollipop update for S4 (5 May bulid)
But in India, Russia and many Asian countries no new update is being pushed out. We have been left on HOD3
Samsung needs to listen. They cannot leave users like that
