After the 4.4.2 update[385Mb+85Mb after the first reboot] the s4 i9500 is running like wind ..no lags nothing[India].
They have improved the touch and the heating issues are also removed to an extent. in this update u can also disable the pre-installed apps ..u can disable ; not uninstall.
They have added some more new features in the settings; check that out.
The battery life have also been improved and the camera quality and the status bar also.

only one thing while locking the screen it does not lock in blink of eye like before..it takes 1sec more.

i love my s4 and its working more smother and faster.
keep updating your phone for better performance. and the newer update which the s4 will get will improve the battery life very well as it is being implemented in S5.

so waiting for new update.
hope this information helped U.
thankx. My Experience.

Kitkat 4.4.2 just ruined the battery life of my gs4. I have to charge it 2 times a day with less usage and if i use wifi and play any game then three times a day. Overnight drain is about 25 to 30%. I just wasted my money on samsung. Neither i can keep this phone nor i can sale because it will be a huge loss. But next time i will never buy a samsung. There are only two companies worth buying, apple and Htc. Samsung is just........! I am not satisfied.

PS : Sorry, just saw about the small hand thing, don't go for Z1 then, it's big.

I'm starting to hate samsung, I bought this mobile since June 2013, and till now I didn't get official update Jelly Bean 4.3 because my mobile's region code is IRAN (THR).

And I think there's no hope to get KitKat update too, and I don't want to flash my phone using Odin, because I had a bad experiences

I want to ask you all that S4 for about 27K INR is worth at this point of time.
I want to buy a new smartphone.
Previously i was planning to buy Grand 2 but after reading its review i decided that it is not worth that price and then i got in my mind to invest 6K more and buy flagship device.
I want to ask whether i should go S4, NOTE 2 or grand 2.
I want to add one more thing that i have small hands so which will be comfortable in my hands
Thnxxx in advance
