I have got this kitkat update on Samsung S4 i9505 set. Should I upgrade it ? I have heard many negative reviews regarding this recent update.
This firmware will mean you cannot downgrade to the stock 4.3 ROM, it also has an issue with external SD card mounting so beware. I have had to go to CM11 until the official ROM is released to the public.
Samsung should give same display(borderless display like s4 9505,knox upcoming mob) between 15000 range decreasing other quality in mobile,i like this upcoming samsung galaxy s4 gt i9505 it is best one.
fcjan, 11 Jan 2014what are you talking about? I am using KK on my HTC One for more then 1 month.. Try againNice try troll.
It is not released for the general version yet.
Only for Unlocked, developer. and GPE editions..
Those only make up a smaller fraction of the whole amount of ONE users and again those respective version of the S4 have the 4.4 update as well.
This is official company released rolled out updates.
Not custom roms, leaked versions you downloaded and experimented with or anything like that.
If you want to talk roms almost any hacked phone has it now. Even the original Droid G1 has Jelly bean and people considering working on KK builds.

I will give you the steps that I followed which made my nexus 7 like how it was when I got it a year and a half ago, blazing fast!
1.install App Cache Cleaner. Clear your cache as often as possible as ive noticed that doing so removes a significant amount of lag
2.make sure that you have a storage space of 3 gb and above as having a lower storage amount isnt good and slows the device down
3. Erase any applications which you do not use and any extra useless files which you've downloaded from the Internet. To check for such files I would recommend that you download File Manager Hd to easily check your storage folders and view them with ease
I hope this helps !
