How can i fix my samsung s4 active. Wifi and bluetooth cant work. Please help me
Wooooow I love Everything about this phone.
The lollipop version works so smooth and perfect.
It's Really cool
I got this phone two and a half years ago and it's still working perfectly. It has fallen into water, been dropped, bumped and knocked many times and still looks good. On hikes, in flight mode, using my 1:50000 maps on Oruxmaps, GPS is accurate and battery life is good as it is not continually seeking a tower. I have multiple batteries and many maps on separate SD cards. Will be rooting it soon to finally get rid of Samsungs bloatware. I really like it's powerful WiFi and I often use it as a WiFi hotspot or improve my notebooks WiFi reception using the USB tethering. I wont upgrade to the newer actives as they now have non removable batteries and no sd card slot. So when this phone eventually goes I have to look for a different brand to take its place. Are Samsung paying attention?
Varyz, 24 Jan 2016How is the battery life in lollipop compared to jelly bean? (4.3)I've owned this phone since maybe a week after it came out, and I just love this phone. I'm not ready ro give up the physical navigation keys. As per the battery with the offical 5.0.1 its freaking horrible. I thought it was my battery, so I borrowed my friends "new" battery, it lasted a lil bit longer but not much more. I think I got mayybe 6 hours of normal use, and this is even after giving the update about a week to settle in. So I naturally did what every android user should do. I rooted it and installed xposed framework, tweaked it, personalized it, and even with the original battery that's 912 days old (that's old) I manage to squeeze 15 hours of little less than normal use, normal use I get 12 hours. With a new battery I get maybe 25% more time. It's fast its compact, it's resilient. Love it. I've had it rooted since day 1, and ever since then people were able to root 5.0.1 I think that will be that last official update this phone will receive. Oddly enough even though this phone was jailbriken by Gehot when it first came out, you wont be able to port "newer" ROM's because the bootloader was never cracked. (You can sideload, but having 2 ROMs is just silly IMO) I'm actually surprised that there were still enough people with this phone that someone decided to work on the root for it, therefore it's still being developed as of OCT 2015, but I think that was the end of the road for this phone, but hey 5.0.1 official update for a phone released in 2013, can't complain.

kaye santos, 10 Jul 2015Goodday! can i ask how to upgrade this phone to lollipop version? thankyou..go to play store and type lollipop :)
Owned more than 2 years. It has working fine through these year.
The sim tray is broken by me, going to replace the sim tray, repair cost will be charged.
Battery live get pretty bad after long usage, going to replace a new battery for it.
It is not waterproof, nor it is rugged. It is just a normal phone, with an alternate outlook to the original Galaxy S4.
The LCD screen itself is pretty good, you get better white, and unsaturated color.
It also show more detail than the AMOLED screen, I did compare side by side with the original S4 with a test video, the AMOLED screen look more fuzzy when showing fine detail, but the different is not obvious, only side by side comparison will notice.
Speaker phone also much louder than the original S4.
Official Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is Rolling-out to Samsung Galaxy S4 Active GT-I9295. The update package is currently available Over-The-air (OTA) in Finland and other Nordic countries.
There is is no nightmare in upgrading to lollipop, am currently running it with lollipop and rooted.... hit me up at Android - Flashfire community via google+
