should i wait for lolipop update for my s4 black edition or update it from service centre ? if i updated it from service centre then future updates will be availble through OTA for me?
AnonD-162430, 14 Feb 2015i've updated my s4, but there no ultra power saving mode, no swiping on phone & settings, ... moreno ultra power saving mode but if you asked me, i would even get rid of the power saving mode altogether because it is not that good...what it does is it lowers brightness level and limits cpu, well if i want lower brightness i lower it and if i want less cpu i buy a lesser phone, believe me, i have had phones where keeping power saving mode on only drained battery, i don't know about s4, never tried and never will; there is a silent mode, i don't understand??!!

My S4 baseband version is I9500DDUFNI1 does any s4 got lolipop update of this baseband version
Those who have not got the update and their phone is in warranty they can go to service center and get their phones updated for free whether its black edition or whichever. why take tension. Also they will install the software from scratch so it will be better.

I have posted the official reply from Samsung, now anyone having questions please read my previous post and can ask questions... Black edition version hence never got any lollipop update... And if someone is saying that he has received the update means he is fooling you or his software was manually updated or his software was replaced by service centre.... Hence that person got the new update... This is final reply... Still all hopes not ended... As the reply also mentioned that Samsung is working on the query

AnonD-54439, 15 Feb 2015after installing lollipop via OTA on i9500 india ram always over 1.2 gb. is it normal or somet... moreYes it is normal!
Same with me, I think it is due to new runtime and new way of development and handling of applications!
But this the fact that it's buttery smooth!
ive also got the black edition in delhi..
the baseband is NA4..
it will update to lollipop..after all its is same as the other standard s4..
you need not worry..
