Here is my review of Lollipop after two days of use -
1. Battery life is Worse than KitKat (hope it improves)
2. Overall phone has become faster but there is homescreen and app drawer redrawing when many apps are opened up. This issue was not in KitKat.
3. Internal Memory has decreased by 1 GB
4. Screen Blinking issue is still present but intensity has decreased.
5. Expected Theme option in Lollipop like in new samsung phones but it's not in s4. Disappointed !
If you ask me, then Do Not Update now.
Maybe 1-2 more stability, bug fixing updates will improve the situation.

Yesterday i received the Lollipop OTA update of about 993.1 Mb. It gave the galaxy s4 i9500 a new feature apart from regular lollipop interface.
It is nothing but an update to use the phone as PORTABLE BATTERY OPERATED INDUCTION STOVE. yes, i mean it. Try making a half-boil to begin with, followed by your favourite recipes.
HOW TO OPERATE?
This feature is completely automatised. Inspired by BMW i8 Hybrid concept car which charges its batteries from the running petrol engine, the galaxy s4 heats up instantaneously from the running apps. Thanks to the masterminds of Samsung.
- use whatsapp for 15 mins, it heats up.
- browse internet for 10 mins, it heats up.
- play a big game like asphalt 8 or NOVA for 5 mins, it heats up.
- Lastly, charge the phone and it heats up.
I've been using galaxy s4 since june 2013 (2 years approx) and never has my phone heated so instantly.
So, in the upcoming summer season you don't want to burn your pockets. Believe me!
Forgot to mention, the update completely changed the look and it is marvelous.

Irate on S4 (5.0.1), 19 Feb 2015I just updated my Android version to 5.0.1 from 4.4.2 and recently I am experiencing bugs whic... moreJust do a factory reset and wait for 2-3 days for firmware to stabilize. You'll get a b great experience after that without bugs :)
This all price drop crap is nothing more than day dream. Just go to amazon.in and they have mentioned Rs. 17999 but "not in stock". Fact is s4 is not available in India. So don't worry s4 users , you still using one of the best and compact mobile by today norms.
I just updated my Android version to 5.0.1 from 4.4.2 and recently I am experiencing bugs which is the most annoying one. Lots of times happened that the apps, mainly all, crashes or FC while using it. So annoying. I already tried restarting the phone many times but the bug persists and looks like it's getting worst. Any thoughts how to fix this? Thanks
I used xperia z1.z2.z3.z3c...htc m8.e8.one.iphone 5.5c.5s....but i hate samsung...only s4 i like... yesterday i heard s4 price drop so i confirmed ...and purchased.....this morning ...bcz samsund dont need purchase hi end...now its cheaper i purchased ..nothing wrong na ..thank you sammy
A Big Slap to Samsung for the big injustice they did for S4 price tag !
Time to Boycott Samsung. Crapsung !!
next price drop must be note 3 and s5 to the price tag of low end device. beware users samsung cheating all. all class of people going to have note3 s4 s5 in their hands...RIP SAMSUNG got your shit for rs.41500 ! RIP
Dear Samsung! Cant you able to differentiate between you high end and mid range devices ?!?! you are selling such an high end device with such a cheap price. Do you think hereafter we premium mobile user buy your products Huh?!?!? A BIG NO!!. S4 on par with Note 3 and Note 4 , S5. looks like all level people will have your high end device without any concern about premium line. Get lost yourself. no wonder HTC and Sony are way ahead than your Retarded mobile and its strategy..
