Im using leaked lollipop 5.0.1 right now. Leaked firmware from germany with baseband I9505XXUHOA7, credit to XDA. No issue found til right now, I think small issue only. The USB icon when connected to a computer or in USB OTG is not shown in notification bar but visible in notification panel & the earphone/headphone icon is invisible when the recommended apps options is turn off. But over all, I love this update. :)

Lollipop update!!!
(GSMarena, pliz publish it!)

Official Lollipop Update (Firmware) for i9505.
You will need to flash it via Odin.

Link: http://forum.xda-developers.co...100-t3043983

For others S4 LTE carrier variants, you can try this custom ROM (I'm currently using it):
http://forum.xda-developers.co...1-0-t3049564
And also flash the updated kernel via recovery: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95916177934­539035

The latest comes with S5, S6 and Note 4 features such as Ultra power saving mode, Private Mode, Launcher Themes, MultiWindow with Pop-up Windows (like I the Note 4) and many more!

No bugs, this is just perfect!

Read this and then tell me you still want Lollipop. You upgrade junkies make me laugh. It doesn't matter that the upgrade is bug ridden and in some cases actually brick the phone (which is why it has been pulled); you still want it.

No it isn't! Look on the pane to the left of these comments and click on 'Specifications' and then look at 'Network'
The i9500 is listed as GSM/HSPA; the i9505 is listed as GSM/HSPA/LTE. The i9500 is NOT LTE (4G) compatable.

well im using it quite a while now and it's really great phone for me. SURE that battery drains fast if you have all those GPS, WI-FI, data network and others turned on. But hey, i've turn all those down, also WI-FI or network data, and set display light to minimum. I watch a few videos a day, do some calls and texts and maybe some web browsing do some pictures or just fooling around swithing pages where the apps are if im borred. Well my average battery last time is 2 days.

However you can purchase better battery for s4, last time i checked it was 2900mAh which is 300mAh better than original but im sure there is better one also.

the camera performance is great, awesome picture quality, but that quality is lost in low light conditions mainly indoors, outside on cloudy weather it's great.
