s4 battery gauage reset is your own imagination -NOT SCIENCE .we conctacted samsung who say there is NO SUCH THING AS BATTERY GAUGE RESET FOR S4 ETC..

I guess as the price decrease, they also reduce the quality of hardware. After all, we have paid a lot higher premium than those who wait for a price drop.. so, we deserve to get a better quality product...

Drain the battery fully. Phone will shut down. Now start the phone without plugging the charger in. The phone will still start up. Now drain it again. Repeat the procedure till the phone doesn't start anymore. Now plug in the charger and charge up to 100%.
Your battery will be reset. Tell me the results.
satya, 20 Sep 2014It's a very good Smart Phone Not very good,only good.
@Darkgamer, Bro I might asked you so many questions before and this time also waiting for your response. Today my friend was playing a hd game in my phone. Though I get only about 3 hours of on screen time (I told you earlier), he returned the phone seeing alert of 15% battery and I kept it locked. I was watching a cricket match then and didn't touch the phone for a long time. After AT LEAST an hour, I had to make a call and when I looked into the phone, I got very much surprised seeing the battery level increased to 24%. It happens most of the time but not at a level of 15%-24%. Then again it started eating up the battery like hell. I use automatic brightness and 3g enabled but all the fancy features/sync are disabled. I DIDN'T DO A HARD RESET AFTER THE KITKAT UPDATE. what's the reason behind my 3 hours of on screen time and why my battery increases automatically? Is the battery damaged or the phone??? Please suggest me what to do with my phone...
People.. when S4 was released last year in India as well we were getting units from Vietnam,Korea etc and those units still do not have any issues i believe. I have this since 2013 June as I have not faced any issues yet and screen too is strong.And I believe as days passed in India people what getting post Oct 2013 are units from Noida/Gurgaon Samsung Plants and we started hearing so many issues and concerns on S4. Have same experience with a friend of mine as well who ordered S4 via online,that too have so many issues.
[deleted post]You compare Moto G2 with S4! Hahahaha..Somebody plz stop my laughter..
