I think 4.2.1 with "JKay Deluxe 14.95 framework" is far better than "updating" to 4.2.2!
Nice!!! Very close to stock Android. Waiting for that update for my gnote 2, and I'm most interested in data on/of power toggle, recently using one downloaded from Google play.
Anyway, "have a nice day" to all of us here in gsm arena.
And one more thing, hope Samsung will improved their "auto brightness" app, right now I'm using " velis auto brightness" , it's good! !! Visit Google play store, you can get it free.
[deleted post]yep replaced by this 4.2 for ga3 thats is so laggy, its like after tought just for the sake of being updated
I waited for 5-6 months to get my s4 i9500..and eventually got one on the very first day of its availability in my city for which i was quite happy.
..but now i feel like being fooled by samsung's marketing strategy!
This is my first and last Samsung Smartphone!!...i'll switch back to Nokia for my next smartphone!!
I tried it on i9305 and it doesn't work cause lacks radio frequency for LTE. In i9300 i heard reports of some bugs, but like it is on this post, it's only a test version.
It works fine but with some bugs but i advise you to try it.
Ever heard of marketing strategy? Always remember that it's always about business, and in business everything is planned.
z, 22 Jun 2013this is why i buy an iphone. i know it wont get outdated and still offer everything i needed. Hahaha what a stupid statement you just made, that phone is more outdated that you might think dual-core chips are like 2-3 years old tech, LCD screens are even more outdated, it doesn't have an HD screen so again 2-3 years old tech, 1 GB ram like Galaxy S2 had, 8 MP cam again like Galaxy S2 had, and a 4 inch display like Galaxy S1 had, so you are at the level of Galaxy S1 and S2 technology and even older if you count the LCD display and you said your device isn't outdated ? LMAO
z, 22 Jun 2013this is why i buy an iphone. i know it wont get outdated and still offer everything i needed. Or an ipod touch! Theres only one every 2 years. Its fast, you get all kind of apps that is optimized for ios- After all everything you do these days are internet base lol :)
Seanwhat, 22 Jun 2013Supreme butthurtery going on here. Something better existing doesn't devalue what you have. Ca... moreno !!! you are very wrong indeed. the 2nd hand price for the first generation of galaxy s4 will drop dramatically, because all customers of galaxy s4 are only geeks wich want faster and faster devices. more, the sales of the actual galaxy s4 will drop because these kind of news makes every geek to preserve his money until 2nd generation of s4 will come out. very wrong marketing move. meanwhile the htc one is selling like hotcakes and will be immune to the 2nd gen. of galxy s4 because htc one's customers are totally another league, they are buying htc one for the superb design,for the beats audio amplifiers for headphones and spaekers and for non-amoled display,more natural, not for raw power. very wrong marketing move samsung. never touch a running system !!!
this is why i buy an iphone. i know it wont get outdated and still offer everything i needed.
Obviously this news is only for the nerds and geeks, why cry because your phone is now the 2nd most powerful out there?
And so what if Samsung announced this 2 months too early? You buy this new one and a better phone from HTC and Sony comes out 1 month later and you will cry about that to?
The people who are complaining are just fanboys or nerds who wants the best technology every month.
Who can compete against Samsung really ? they have all the Fab's they can produce all what they want.
This news is fishy and all the trolls that have unleashed shows clearly that there's an anti S4 marketing campaign started by the competition that can't compete against Samsung.
Supreme butthurtery going on here. Something better existing doesn't devalue what you have. Calm down.
But where is the faster LTE-A Galaxy S4 ?
How can someone be upset on something that hasn't been released yet ?
When Samsung Launched the S 4, In the launching in New York, part of the speech was Mr. Saying that they were goin to release the LTE version later on in the year 2013. So it's impossible for anyone not to know that, unless no one paid close attention and purchased the phone by being sterotype.
Soulchild, 22 Jun 2013I feel like Samsung should have said to the world that they were planning to release all these... moreBut then, a big company like samsung with a lot of concurrence can not tell every step they take month before they take it.
Q: Which smartphone you think that it is the worst?
Mr Bear:Hxxx 2, becoz it doesn't shine like a diamond and it is as cheap as the panda's restaurant.
*Note* It seems Mr Bear doesn't notice that there are few words marked at the left bottom of his beloved Nxxx 8210, ....."Made by Panda".
Mrs Cat:Sxxx 4, becoz it's sales is not as good as expected and thus it is a crap.
Mr Bunny:The smartphone that doesn't suits most my needs or preferences is the worst smartphone to me.
So what's your answer? :D
