I've been using this phone for more than a year and half and I'm a little bit disappointed.
Battery life has dropped to the point where if I use the camera a little bit (10-20 pictures, 1-3 videos) the battery dies before the evening.
This phone is really bulky and although I was prepared for that, it really is uncomfortable on the long run, also, my jeans now have a distinctive round mark where the lens was.
It really lacks some punch in the CPU: I have bought a bluetooth handset I it's almost unusable if any other app appart from the music app is opened (The sound is deteriorated because bluetooth compression can't keep up).
The OS is locked in Android 4.2.2 and as it's NOT a standard S4, you can't upgrade with CyanogenMod.
When using the camera with any other app than the pre-installed, dedicated samsung camera app, you will experience some bug because no other app can use the zoom ring.
I'm looking for an other smartphone and this one will serve more as a smart compact camera.

I thought this was a great phone until recently the camera started zooming out whilst in standby mode. Later it stopped and the zoom motoring begins a very annoying and cranking sound. In an attempt to use the camera app, it says my camera is unable to zoom and I can't use it.
It didn't fall neither did I do an update. Went to a service centre and was told the lens is faulty, would cost a lot to repair.
Please can I have a solution cos am based in Nigeria.
