Updated my Galaxy S4 I9505 to Android Kitkat 4.2.2 about a month ago and I have faced no issues so far. Everything works perfectly. Its smooth and responsive. Battery is also pretty inexpressive. I was able to get a day and a half worth of use out of a single charge with somewhere around 5 hours of screen on time.

I got this phone a month ago and
- Here are 3 big problems that i discovered (if anyone can help) :
1. The microphones are reversed ,so when i record a video the sounds that come from right side are playing in left the channel, and the sounds from left on the right channel.
2. The audio output is just terrifying (for headphones or aux) {I just didn't expect that}
3. "Play Store" - The best apps are not available in my country (So a smartphone without good apps is just a wasting)
4. Battery is just not enough you must charge it every day and sometimes even twice a day.
5. Too much apps that I don't need that are installed ,and you cannot uninstall them just disable.
- I still like it , and without these problems it just be perfect.
- If anyone would help i would appreciate that.

I had the same issue with my S4 i9505. It kept on freezes every day, sometimes twice or thrice a day. What I did was erased some of my phone internal memory, uninstalled few unnecessary apps and turned off Google location reporting. It had solved my problem. It has been few days now and phone is working flawlessly. Especially that Google Location Reporting feature was draining my battery alot. Now battery time has improved and I can use my phone for 30 hours with ease.

Well, I'm into now past my second week of using this beautiful phone. The battery life has improved a little now allowing me to juice it for a whole day. So far I've seen no negative issue yet, it's been truly a pleasant phone to use. I guess one has to see the priorities when purchasing a smartphone. I am happy with the richness of the 5 inch screen, my priorities are a good cam, a good listening experience, both of which the S4 provides generously and a removable battery. The LTE too is another big bonus in our ever demanding world of communications. Though the S4 feels solid and well built, it being such a good phone to own and use, a good fold up cover, plus a good quality screen protection will assure that this phone will provide you for a long time dependable and trustworthy service. In all honesty I can only recommend it as an excellent phone, still top notch in ever sector.

After my bad experience in Samsung Galaxy S4, the unit get extremely hot and the battery become swollen, I changed the battery twice from Samsung dealer in period of 4 months, and even charging time on USB is very very slow.Also MMC issues every time I connect my mobile to laptop the laptop hang than I discover that the problem is from the MMC.
Therefore I don’t recommend any body to buy Samsung mobile phone and waist their money, there is a lot of other brands 100 times better than Samsung mobile like HTC one LG G2 Xperia Z2, this is my advice after experience.

Get S4 and flash with Cyanogenmod. You will never use back Samsung UI. Try it.

I purchased this phone a few days ago. In my family we've already got a few Samsung phones in use, but as far as I am concerned this is my first one. I've been using Nokia, HTC, BB, Motorolla and Sony for quite a while, all of them great phones, but now I can say that I am truly pleased with my S4. It's very fast, butter smooth, seamless and a pleasant phone to have around. Maybe the battery is not the most durable I've seen but overall I simply cannot fault it in any way. I will definitely recommend it as a good buy.
