I have probably done something stupid and now can't fix it. Why is my screen on the camera green? It doesn't allow me to see what I'm capturing. Its ok if i want a selfie but not for normal shots. Help please :)

I bought this phone yesterday and the battery life sucks. If wifi on, the battery drains almost 1% per 1 minute. SAMSUNG PLEASE FIX THIS!!!

> In reply to Sh.Faisal @ 2014-12-09 22:41 from 6QwD - click to readI am using KITKAT 4.4.2 .

I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 i9506 recently. I have also installed a 4G SIM card.

When I tried to activate 4G/LTE I find that the phone does not provide me 4G/LTE capability.

Here's what I have;

Model: Gt-I906
Android Version: 4.4.2 (Kitkat)
Baseband version: i9506XXUCNJ1
Kernel Version: 3.4.0-2587343 dpi@SWDD3016#1 Mon Oct 20 15"11:07KST 2014

Build Number: kot49h.i9506xxucnj2

Network Mode only shows;

WCDMA/GSM
WCDMA only
GSM only

Have I got a dud phone ? or can I do something to get 4G/LTE?

Any advice will be appreciated

Thank you

can you tell me your opinion about battery life? Snapdragon 800 is better than 600 in power efficiency ?

I went to my carrier first they inserted the 4G sim and than he manually enable the LTE on my i9506. Unfortunately I changed my sim and manual setting was lost. I will again revisit him to activate LTE.
There are other flash-rom based platform you can use. But I personally prefer manual settings until update.

all samsung phones can be updated from this site, official one.

even if your country don't have this update, you can try different country.

I'm using S4-Mini(dual sim one), earlier, my country getting didn't get (ofcourse, now got), so I updated with Russian version.. and working very good - no issues as of now
