I bought this variant of the phone about a couple of weeks ago, however it still has Jelly Bean 4.3. Does anyone have an idea if or when this Black Edition will get the KitKat 4.4 update? Is it just the matter of waiting?
Samsung becoming nokia , samsung just dont make same mistake with nokia.
Rising star mobile is Sony ang LG
they make sensible mobile phone and beautiful phone.
My normal s4 recently came back from samsung repair flashed with the 'black' firmware. A few wallpapers maybe two different ringtones and a different back cover don't really make a special edition good value.
I've since flashed it back to the normal firmware because it wouldn't accept the ota kitkat update :-)
Still looks cheap! Plastic and fake leather, even cheaper than all plastic. Calling it faux doesn't make it any more chic, as it means "fake".....lol
Why not just make the faux leather back an accessory so we can purchase that!! That would make more sense.
That's what happens when consumers give too much power to one brand/company.
I am getting sick of samsung making fool of people like iphones does!!!!!!! making the same old things over n over again!!!!! Lumia has making market now
well in response to the article and everyones views on the price - the phone is being offered with the free galaxy gear smartwatch (rrp £200) at phones 4u on all monthly prices, so please care to read more and research before yapping
Now Samsung is making blunder mistake as Nokia has been done early. It's very bad marketing strategy which Samsung is trying to use in mobile industry. Why Samsung think that people are illiterate and fool?
Actually I think you'll find its been available in the UK now through phones4u for over two weeks as I bought one on contract for same price as the normal S4. You can also get the S4 black edition mini from carphone warehouse who have the exclusive rights on that one!
In Russia it's from january, costs 600$ - http://www.svyaznoy.ru/catalog/phone/224/1861462
