Whatever happens I am not going to install lollipop bcoz of the battery issues unless a fix is provided by samsung in near future. So dont be anxious about lollipop. Kitkat is good.

Post that Samsung has released 2 updates for S4, none was made available for black edition. There is a strong possibility of no update for black edition or it comes very late. If you cannot wait flash it with your own risk
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.
