hello everyone, using Lollipop in my s4 from 10 days . its a very good update . now my s4 working very smooth, so don't think anything just update your s4 with L5.0 ,& there are some bugs too so those who updated please have some patience & wait for a bug free update . don't cry or feel sad lol :P

Who haven't got the updates yet on their black edition plz go service centre & they will update your baseband version then u will get the update of lolipop.
abhijeet, 21 Feb 2015hey guys .. i'm planning to buy a device but confused between htc desire 820 & galaxy s4..... moreIf you are looking for mobile with good front camara go for htc D820. Else go for S4. S4 is over D820 in cases of screen clarity, size(comfort in pocket), battery, features(AirView, Air gestures etc). Now prize is also less in amazon.

John , 21 Feb 2015Use for one year 3 months. Phone auto turn off by itself. Did a factory reset to no avail. The... moreu should install a different firmware and after that buy a new battery because the firmware of your country has damaged your battery
download one from sammobile (for example the one of germany) and install it using odin
