dd, 23 May 2014Then wat abt those cache n misc files..they wil keep pile up n taking a huge space? Bcoz in bl... moremusic should be kept in sd card. The internal storage is meant for only apps. Every app will have some cache and app data. Cache just makes the app run faster and remember your settings. app data remembers your skores, settings and all the data related to the app. So they'll pile up and you don't need to care for them.
You may clear the cache if it's too big let's say 50 MB but don't clear the app data as all your settings and data related to the app will be gone.
In all the versions of s4, only 8.9 GB is usable due to the huge number of apps preinstalled.
You should install clean master to clear junk and cache.
Don't care about the ram and do not try to kill apps. Android is made to consume RAM. free ram is wasted ram. The ram will never deplete or give you problems. If the app is consuming ram, it'll work much faster.
Only 1.82 is available as 0.18 gb is used as VRAM or graphic RAM. No Android phone has full 2 GB of RAM available.
Have a nice day

Bcoz in black edition out of on board 16GB 7.5GB z wid system n 8.5GB is only available for users. Even out of 2GB, only 1.82 available of which most of d time 800MB z alwys occupied..won't these slow down my device? Also factory reset z not alwys feasible 2 clear cache n misc files. Apps 2 clear cache don't helpful much..even after runnin many app fr clearing cache. .wen I go 2 application manager individual apps still have cache..so no meaning installing such apps which will run behind but actually not so useful

darkgamer, 22 May 2014No need to clear app caches unless an app has a huge cache. Cache speeds up the app performance. Ok..n wat abt Misc files which z below Cached files..there r few files like ".thumbnails" they occupy huge space like 400MB n etc..shall I delete them?
This phone simply rocks,the screen clarity is awesome with great camera which is one of the best 13MP shooter i've ever used works really well even in low light conditions,great call quality above all the battery life is also good even kitkat update.

I bought galaxy s4 black edition 2 weeks back after long study in that segment.
good graphics and cpu
even though snapdragon 800 is an excellent cpu, there is no mobiles with amoled display for that price segment in india
1)elegant looks with faux leather apperance in the back
2) excellent display with high contrast.. u dont see the borders when u watch movies especially at night.. thats the pecularity of super amoled screen infact of tft/ ips screen in sony lg and htc..
moto x also have similar display performance
3 ) decent build quality
1)performance and battery backup less as compared to lg g2
2) user interface not as good as htc one
but overall good for a person with occassional gamer with office use.

Yes you'll have to install apps again. Your settings will be lost. Contacts gone and other things.
For that, firstly back up contacts to sd card. Then you can back up your apps. There is an app named 'androzip'. That app can back up your apps by making their .apk files. Just make their apks and move that folder to sd card.
You can back up and restore things using the kies too. That may be handy.

If you don't want to do a firmware upgrade, do a factory reset. It should solve the problem.
I know who you are. It seems I won't share my id on a public forum. Whatever you want to ask you may ask here. I will reply.
