I heard that note 2 will recieve lollipop update. So is there any possibility that samsung will update s4 to next iteration of android?
RFA, 13 Feb 2015Yes I have updated it recently. The battery drain is a major issue. I wiped the phone reset it... morebattery drainages s4 known to samsung but samsung not responding - samsung sales even for s5 dropping - factory resets NEVER help.. apparently NO CURE for s4 battery fast drainages EPIDEMIC .
AnonD-362937, 13 Feb 2015Ok simple question - anybody got update for baseband NA4?I don't think NA4 the black edition of Samsung galaxy s4 has got any update... Will have to wait for few more days... But please keep on checking for software updates... Moreover I'm not sure if new update is stable or not... Over heating issues are being reported by some users.... I would suggest users to wait for sometime and check the reviews before new update..
S4 reserves 7.2 GB memory for system leaving only 8gb memory for user. Is it so or only my phone has this problem?
those who are updating to android lollipop please be patient because after updating the frist 30mins the phone will be laggy
because all gapps and samsung apps are updating so dont panic
AnonD-362937, 13 Feb 2015You got deep black or balck mist? What is your baseband version?Hi all,
I got Lollipop update last nite on my Black Edition(I9500-deep black model) of 991MB(5.0.1). I did via OTA & not via Kies3. I'm frm Pune, India & here r my 1st hand observation after upgrade:
Release date 30th Jan 2015
1.UI Buttery smooth as was d previous version of Kitkat, no lag found.
2.Overall UI looks good for a change
3.Kids mode is now there
1.Was heating a lot(hope that wil go over slowly once a week passes & apps are get used to new OS)
2.I found White Background of setting menu & phone book irritating with unwanted too colorful icons(though app drawer has a transparent background)
3.As of now battery draining bit early than it was on 4.4.2 version
Rest I wil update later. But must say Black background of 4.4.2 looks better than this, which I still have atleast fr my N3neo :)
bob, 12 Feb 2015Hi all! Can anybody tell me if this model is 4G network capacitive or not?No. Only the S4 19505.
LOLLYPOP 501 502 more power hungry - faster battery drainages - car engines burn more fuel in fastlanes - delete/ disable all non essential apps running in the background straining the battery - buy a power pack - on the go- camera usages cause fastest battery drops - learn to live with the problems - have been dependent on cell/mobile phone x25yrs -feel lost without one - always carry smaller prepay for outgoing essential calls -wait for s6 ..young son said to his friend on landline -dad is upset bad mood HIS battery is dead...
sunny Raj, 12 Feb 2015I have already updated my s4 I9500 to lollipop all is well expect one battery is draining more... moreYes I have updated it recently. The battery drain is a major issue. I wiped the phone reset it and cleared the cache from boot 3 times, but in vane. The battery drains in a matter of hours even while phone is asleep. Please let me know if there is any fix.
PS. GSMARENA if you could please forward our issue to samsung for a fix.
From Delhi.. Just Updated S4.. Not much change.. But it does occupied 2GB space..:(:(.. No need to update.. Its worst..
Got the update and working perfectly fine. Just one issue that battery is draining faster then KitKat 4.4.2. Let's hope for a future build which fix this issue.
