Still when 2g or 3g mobile internet is on these issues persist.. only 15 days old phone with new lolipop update. Factory reset still not proper. Selling it off :-( anybody interested? Lol.

.
It is similar to S3 where total space is shown 16GB but user available is only 11.XXGB so here in S4 total user available memory is only 9.XXGB shown as total memory.
.
Also you think if total space is 9.XXGB than on which space Android is running ??? :) Obviously the remaining 6GB out of 16GB

Thank you

That's why I recommend flushing out the cache partition before you flash your phone.
I've been running the UK Lollipop ROM since it was available for flashing, (nearly three weeks ago), and apart from one tiny hiccup, (which was a rouge app and not Lollipop, has been running fault free ever since.
Try explaining your problems(s) here.

I honestly don't recommand to you to flash with Odin from Samsung official site the nu update lollipop. I just do it and it is just extremly unstable. I search to downgrade to kitkat and wait for the lollipop to appear at my phone normally ( I mean about device》software update) Don't het that rush for new. It foesn't worth ... honestly DON'T DO THIS.

Just bought it a day ago ( from amazon ), got lolipop udadate too ! ... but.. when i use 3g/2g i am unable to play games as the screen autorotates into half and then back to normal. ( auto rotation set to NO ) and while browsing in uc browser or using the phone to make calls, screen flickers for a second ( black ) and back to normal. Didnt expect this from samsung. i have stopped using my phone except for important calls only :-(

I would draw your attention to section 12 of the instructions!

I have flashed different firmwares and this always happens, that's why i always make a backup on my computer. Odin (I believe)gives the option to not reset the those partitions but it isnot recommended because your phone will experience a lot of bugs (that's called 'Dirty flash').
If you don't want that to happen, you better do a Clean flash.

'The S4 savy' (who isn't very "savvy" at all) is wrong. What he is describing is a Factory Reset, which returns your phone to the condition it was when it came out of the box; which is entirely different to flashing Firmware using Odin.
I have flashed a lot of Galaxy phones. beginning with my Galaxy S (2x), my S3 (4x), and now my S4 with Lollipop; and also other peoples Galaxy series; and I have NEVER lost any data. Flashing your phone only changes the Android version; all your contacts, apps, photos etc. remain untouched.

No, Firmware is different to Software, flashing the ROM with Odin won't affect any of your files.

It's okay, I found the problem. It was a rogue app that didn't like Lollipop.
