I already have this handset, and yes It's great. But I was eager to try the L update and try its new feature. So I installed the KAZAKHSTAN version, PDA: BOAD through ODIN. Installation is OK, and then when I try doing some test I see some lags and problem with some application. Try to Benchmark with Antutu and I've got a low result for just 23000 rather than the stock rom which is 4500+ points. I don't know if its relevant to what country I use. And now when I try to restore my STOCK ROM I always getting an error but I find a way though. So better I'll just wait for the proper release for Indian Rom.

Samsung taking forever to roll out lollipop for this phone. I don't even think it's going to get lollipop again.
bluealpha, 05 Feb 2015So what's better overall... octa-core or quad-core? ?quad core is better.
It's not hurry for new o's update.
But samsung should consider s5 before s4.
all of us will buy flagship handset's because they will get latest os updates before older models.
This was one of the reasons.
But samsung ditched Indian S5 consumers.
I don't understand how the galaxy s4 eyxnos version is being updated to lollipop before this phone.
Why rush on the firmware upgrade? Be patient before flashing to lollipop until stable versions have been released.
I've read that snapdragon version is better, that the octacore lags. It's true it lags but from experience the octacore phone performs much better on heavy duty like gaming, video, etc.I would not go back to quad core version.
As for battery life it improved a lot since last update to kernel 3.10.9-2712167.
In conclusion this is a good phone, on the top of the list.
I have downloaded the firmware 5.0 (Lollipop)for GS5 (SM-G900H) from the Sammobile (size 2.39GB) Build Number – LRX21T.G900HXXU1BOA7 through Odin v3.10.6 in Nepal. It is not a problem with new firmware, working fine. I notice initially Finger Scanner improved and now smooth. Touchwiz looks different then KITKAT. 5.0 Lollipop second firmware G900HXXU1BOAD also need to update for battery performance. It is also possible to update through Samsung Kies.
Upgrade is not the fact..... The fact is the battery life and performance.... With out producing heat.... Does lollipop meet the criteria? Who knows..? Please confirm me....
Samsung what is the wisdom behind making a phone with 8core without LTE with same battery, now it does not last a day
