Use for one year 3 months. Phone auto turn off by itself. Did a factory reset to no avail. The problem remains. Went to Samsung service centre (Singapore). The customer service officer claims this is a common problem due to wear and tear. And for it to have this problem only after one year three months is already very good. That's the quality of Samsung S4 for you.
Repair solution is to change motherboard for S$348, which is like the price of a new phone.
Samsung S4. Build to last just beyond the one year warranty period.

Define yourself ; don't let your phone define you! Everyone deserves to be happy, even low income earners, Samsung cutting the prices of some of their flagship phones is quite a welcome idea. Those couldn't afford it back then, can now. It's quite awful the comments folks in India are dropping because of the good deed by Samsung.
You folks complain just about anything, you were dying to get the taste of lollipop, now your phones are overheating and causing the lollipop to melt in your mouths and you're discouraging others from installing it! Tired of your endless ranting... just speaking my mind! Peace out!

Is heating complaints there in LTE (abroad)version ?! I'm going to get one...
I installed Lollipop and found a great deal of cosmetic changes in th UI. But it has ruined the battery life, Eats more RAM, Lags, Appcrashes and Extreme heat compared to the earlier version. A complete unstable upgrade. Time to sell my phone.
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.
