I've updated mine to lollipop two days before, now here is my review:-
1: the ui is somewhat different from what we are used to
2: battery drain is fast flas compared to kitkat
3: have some strange problem or say bug which was not in kitkat that the volume automatically reducing to the lowest level after sometime which is too much annoying and I've missed some calls due to it..!! Plz anybdy confirm here if they are too facing this problem... overall I'd say that plz think twice before updating ur phone or wait for a stable release
It's almost 5 days have past since Indian Samsung Galaxy S4 received the latest and sweetest android lollipop 🍭 5 update, those who received the update must be feeling happy and those who did not received update (specially black edition) must be feeling cheated and frustrated... Well their is yet no news on when or whether these remaining users will get the update. Honestly speaking I would suggest to those who are waiting can keep on waiting and may be you will receive the update or their might be possibility that Samsung has forgotten about its black edition version hence you wouldn't receive anything.
toniandme, 13 Feb 2015based on my experience, lollipop 5.0.1 is the best update samsung has ever made improving ever... morei've updated my s4, but there no ultra power saving mode, no swiping on phone & settings, no Lollipop caller ID, no user login, no silent mode is there any problem with update 5.0.1 or those problems and those upgrades will be solved with 5.1? some body please help me i cannot see my mobile like battery also drained early.

ARG 879, 14 Feb 2015Hey shubham plz can u tell me if S4 black edition Baseband version NA4 will get 5.0 LollipopEvery version should get lollipop. If you're skeptical about your version, you can flash the official Indian firmware via sammobile. Also I've given my review link below that explains flashing :)
Hey shubham plz can u tell me if S4 black edition Baseband version NA4 will get 5.0 Lollipop
For all those who have problems with lollipop, do a factory reset and wait for 2-3 days for firmware to settle. All issues will be gone :)

I have s4 black edition baseband no NA4 , plz anyone tell me will this s4 get 5.0 lollipop , someone is tellung s4 black edition will not ever be updated , some are telling it will get update in few days , plz anyone tell me perfectly ...
A4 deep black edition will never be updated to lollipop..almost all indian S4 versions are now receiving 5.0.1 update
One more reason behind my say is S4 versions prior to lollipop update was running PDA NI2, black edition is still on NG1
So guys either be happy or sad your choice
Please post whenever anybody on na4 baseband gets the update.

Whts the main cons aftr lollypop update in samsung galaxy s4 i9500 ? Pls anyone tell me,,,
based on my experience, lollipop 5.0.1 is the best update samsung has ever made improving every important aspect of s4 devices, mine has 20 to 30% more battery time, great improvement on heating issue (back to norma)l and no lag at all; all the above should have been good on kitkat too but it wasn't, now they corrected it; i have the russian version and i do configure the phone to a very good operating level, rooting and uninstalling many apps i don't use also freezing others that i might only rarely need, keeping background app limit to 4, no animations, clean with clean master etc, but still, i do that on all firmwares while this one is an obvious upgrade on every level possible; again, the good should have been there in other previous firmwares too but "better late than never"
Recently updated my s4 to lollipop...bit laggy n battery drainage is the major issue...love the fresh user interface
and which one is better for battery life russian or indian lollipop firmware ???
Shreya s4lover, 13 Feb 2015please help me:'( my phone's bit laggy after the update:'( and there's no more smart scroll ... moreSee, lagging may have many reasons out there!
As much I think it's dur to change of the runtime from dali to ART(ANDROID RUNTIME), so all the all apps made for older may lag, wait for the updated version of all apps for lollipop!
Otherwise if some pre-installed apps are also misbehaving and crashing then wait for few time like one or two days as in the start after the update, the firmware settles I'm little time then all issues like heating and lagging gets reduced!
