I have noticed in battery status that almost 49% of the battery is consumed by the screen even my screen is dim.
Has anyone saw the screen using alot of battery too in their s4 mini?

AnonD-289049, 07 Aug 2014Battery life is impressive. I charge my phone once in a day.......battery takes me for over ... moreYeah batter drain in sleep is decreased and far better than Jelly bean. But i think the battery drains faster on usage when compared to Jelly bean. What do you think..?
Has the kit kat upgrade came out in U.K? (specifically 02 in Northern Ireland) If not does anyone know when it is due?
Actually, I find the camera shortcut button at the lock screen to be very useful. I take a lot of pictures during vacation, parties and business. And I lock my screen using pattern lock, with this camera button at the lock screen, I don't need to pattern unlock my phone everytime I need the camera. With a single swype using the camera button, I can use my camera instantly.

2. Turn off sync
3. Turn off data/wifi/gps/bluetooth/smartstay and use only when needed.

Anonymous, 06 Aug 2014How is the audio and the speaker of this phone?
and how about the battery?(without any update... moreBattery life is impressive.
I charge my phone once in a day.......battery takes me for over 13 hours with calls, browsing and stuff.
I think you need KK upgrade. Reduces lag. Screen responds faster.
Though it comes with some minor bugs but overall. Better than JB.
Mine still reboots tho.......
Vishnu, 05 Aug 2014I am trying to download kitkat firmware for i9192 from sammobile website. But it has two optio... moreTo check which version your own is, go to
Settings>More>about device>baseband version.
You'll see the region yours ends with , either INU or INS so you'll know if yours is released.
But I think wi-fi upgrade would be better so your information stays intact after upgrade.
harikumar, 06 Aug 2014Updated my white 9192 early this week to 4.4.2 via wifi. Around 512 mb update. Free ram has in... morecan u please review it in detail? how much improvements in the battery life?
Upgraded to 4.4.2 today and used for few hours..
my review in short..
1) There are no major changes in UI or homescreen. some minor changes : Status bar become colourless. No H+ symbol.
2) Less battery drain in standby mode..
3) minor improvement in speed of navigation in various apps..
4) Battery and overheating seems to be improved but it is too early to give conclusion in few hours of use.
5)those who are using S view cover, Changes: s view screen brightness improved. it was previously 100% by default but now brightness is same as system settings... In s view screen when you dial any number ther is no option to hang up the call now..( previously it was there)
6)Messaging and hangouts merged, you can use any one as default.. i dont like hangouts much..
7)watch on widget improved.. i like it very much to use it in lock screen..
8) camera shortcut added in lockscreen.. useless..
9) Contacts syncing improved, even with facebook and whatsapp sync now better..
10)Google now improved but i dont use it much either
11) assistive light upgrade to Torch widget.
12)System lag during gaming and high end app is same as previous version
some other minor improvementss..
overall worth to upgrade.. .
all the best..
How is the audio and the speaker of this phone?
and how about the battery?(without any update of the firmware) how long can it stay standby if you use it only for 1-3 calls(small duration around 5 minutes)
Techno, u there or you changed the phone..? Its been a while since you showed up here..
