No android phone comes with flash anymore, it´s a system thing, you have to download a third party app if you want it, many third party navigators have flash already, there is no other way around no modern phone have Flash anymore.

I recently bought Samsung S4 I9505 initially it was good and I recently upgraded my phone to kit kat version(4.4.2) and from here on wards started the problem that from the last week, I observed that the phone immediately turns off with out the battery completely getting drained off. That was a great surprise for me that the battery was at almost 85% and even then when using any app in my phone it is often geeting turned off and I immediately connect to charging and the start using my phone, and why is it so happening that though the battery time exists? Please some one help me out in this regard.How to over come this problem.

> In reply to Naim @ 2014-07-10 17:35 from gC7@ - click to readFor the battery, well its the kitkat bug! Update to 4.4.4 with cyanogenmod or other custom roms or downgrade to 4.3 or 4.2. Alternatively you can grab an Anker 5200 or 7800mah extended battery and keep the bugged 4.4.2. These batteries are reliable and last forever. Mind you NFC is only enabled on the 5200mah, NOT THE 7800.

BTW, I don't recommend you going with zerolemon batteries, their durability is shit. As for Hyperion, their 5000ish model is fine, but the 7000ish is a scam.

As for the volume, you must be deaf or something... I put the volume at 4-5 when I drive a relatively loud car with in-ear headphones and its loud enough.

Furthermore I use a negative "V" equalizer configuration ( I start at 0db on bass and treble and dip into -db on the mids ).

That's a third, or less, of its full volume + an equalizer setting that drops the volume a tad too. And to top it all off, I suffer from acuphens.

Really, you need to get your ears checked. :/

For the games, try a resolution changer app to reduce the resolution and get a more fluid gaming experience that will be less taxing on the processor. Check in the google play store, there are a few good apps for this.

Good luck.

1. Battery drains so fast you can't imagine it.
2. It overheats on every game you play.
3. The audio output from the headphone jack is very bad , I mean the quality is good but the volume is very low comapared to other phones for ex. Iphone (and i hate that fact)
4. When you do video rec. you'll find out that the mic. are reversed. (Are they by Samsung deaf ?)

- Without these problems ,I think it would be the best phone on the market .
(If anyone can help i would appreciate it.)

Never update your s4 to kitkat.I have found solution for s4 kitkat battery drain.. I think its just my unit.. I have change mobile network to 2g only for text and calls.. I have done what they said in the internet. Hard reset then wipe partition.. then wipe data/reformat. Then reboot.. Another thing (only my opinion) 4.4.2 kitkat is for nexus devices.. as you seem fit nexus devices does not have micro sd card.. I removed my sd card and let my s4 drain till 0% battery.. maybe the battery drain is from the sd card.. bcoz nexus devices doesnt have sd card.. and kitkat is not optimized for s4.. with minimal settings.. my s4 is 83% percent just on standby for 35hrs.. I will drain it to 0 and tell you how many hours it can endure..

You can install update of new firmware KitKat 4.4.2 by insatlling Samsung Kies and plugging your samsung galaxy s4 into your computer(desktop r laptop)if your samsung galaxy s4 doesnt install firmware updates autoamatically via wifi.

My s4 drains so fast in kitkat.. Yes its smoother and faster than jellybean.. Wish samsung had optimized the kitkat os and removed too much bloatwares rather than just push kitkat aggresively to update by consumers.. This is my last samsung phone.. I will switch to g3.. Amoled drains battery fas.. I would go for an ips and good battery backup..
