i recently updated my s4 to 5.0.1 and i'm encountering a lots of bugs in it. like contacts keep crashing frequently, apps get closed when opened on carrier network.
Just Checked with the service center in bangalore, confirmed that andriod 5.0.1 update for S4 Black edition is available.
I would like to ask one thing to Samsung When SamsungS4 was of 40+k still it had heating issues, when the price dropped in 30+k still it had heating issue, when the price dropped in 20+k still it had heating issue, Now after the price quoted Rs. 17999/- what about the heating issues. Please reply.
Abhi D, 19 Feb 2015S4 is not available anywhere for 17,999 !
Samsung is spreading false info.
On Amazon also it... moreIt's just a marketing gimmick. I agree. It's like those cheap Xiaomi ad other brands. They claim so much and you can't get them easily and they are in limited stocks.
S4 is far too old now. It was great using it for 2 years but it's time is gone. There are better phones available. Even S5 and Moto X 2014 can be easily got under 30k.

On Amazon also it's out of stock.
And it's discontinued at Samsung stores from 2 months.
Good Luck finding it. Samsung is making Fool of People

Before taking this phone I was a big n big fan of samsung But now samsung made me dissapointed , I am not saying that their products r not gud , phones are too much better n there is no compromise with the performance also , performance is absoulutly brilliant , no other brand can compare with the quality of samsung , but the only thing made me too much dissapointed is the price , not only s4 but u can see all of their phones getting the very huge price drop within less period of time ...
Dissapointed becaz i bought s4 black edtion 3 months back for Rs 27000/- n now i saw in news that its available for Rs17999/- , very very much dissapointed , samsung should not do like that , no other company does this type of price drop ... , in 3 months samsung reduced its price by Rs 10000/- .
I have flashed my black edition using INS stock ROM downloaded from SAMMobile.
I have not faced any issues in last 5 days, no crashes, no heat up. I have not done any factory reset. Not sure why loy many complaints. Only RAM utilisation has increased by 20%. Phone is running smooth.
This is my personal experience with my S4..:)
Do Not Update to Lollipop if you want to Multitask Nicely !
Lollipop is such a RAM Hog.
Even with Facebook app and UC Browser opened side by side, Both the apps consume around 1 gb ram and get force closed.
They open from scratch again when required. Lollipop has killed multitasking !
Earlier FB app used to consume around 100 mb ram, now it consumes around 400 mb !!!
Samsung has given a Badly Coded update.
Even Note 3 owners with 3 gb ram are suffering with Lollipop.

The older one was expensive because, it was made with premium internal components which would last long, and that phone can handle more abuse, and does not present any sort of performance issues till date. Also, as you read in this forum, the older variant has been updated to Lollipop long ago, the newer ones are still just hoping.
Let me put a point very clearly to the forum that Lollipop core itself has many bugs which are yet to be squashed.
I have a Moto G2 with Lollipop 5.0.2 on it and believe me that there are lot of bugs in the same as well like, when I receive a message, whats app alert, the notification dosnt sound sometimes. Phone just vibrates. There are many more problems like this.
Google is trying to fix the same, but god alone knows, when that day will come.
Till then, just hope Samsung is little more responsive in soughing out the issues and not prove that they are SamDung.
