Dear subham yaadab,
Whwn ever I am trying to update my S4 (I9500) in india for last two days after company release update... I get message:
The software update service is
not available. Maximum number
of roll-out updates has been
exceeded. Try later or update
your device using Samsung Kies
As I understood,it is not because the server is busy... as I try every other hour to update via OTA from setting, and every time getting same message.
A server can not be busy or overloaded continuously for 2 days.
I can not go for kies update because internet speed over here is only 40-50 kbps (downloading). Kies will take 2 days to download 1.5 gb data... and service centre is also far away too and they are bad too as last time they made my phone very slow in the name of update ( I told it early to you).
Formate factory was the solution...
Plze help (if possible) to download 70-80mb update via OTA, so that I can fell bug fixes and stability update given by company
Im going for Samsung instead of Sony smartphones, since Sony doesn't have any non-user replacable battery phones. I have to choose between S4 and S4 Active. But there are some comments about S4 Active gets hot. Does S4 (I9500) gets hot too?
shubham yadav, 04 Apr 2014INDIA DOESN'T HAVE 4G YET. So no need for a phone to be 4g. And s4 isn't 4g. so sorry. INDIA HAS 4G -special business /govt services -MNTL and networks -delhi mumbai etc etc .. s4-i9500 has market dependent4g - s4- gt-i9505 HAS 4G anyway -read specs ..ok !!

Then you'll get 5-6 hrs of on screen time on medium brightness if you use for 1 day and 3-4 hrs if you use it for 2 days as standby eats battery
vishnu, 04 Apr 2014I want to buy this phone but one doubt Does it support 4g in India? INDIA DOESN'T HAVE 4G YET. So no need for a phone to be 4g. And s4 isn't 4g. so sorry.

whatever the power usage is, something must using the battery
from all av seen, i do realize that s4 is the best phone one can have,i would like to buy it but i don't know where to find it
am in Kenya
who ever in pakisan is thinking to buy s4 i must say that he or she should atleast think once i was also vey very excited before buyng ths s4 but if u want extra smart features like air view gestures infrared bkaster for controlling tv etc thn go for it but battrey life is very bad but if u dont want these extra sensors nd want a good phone with best camera nd battery backup nd gaming then go for voice v70 nd yes i am recommending voice v 70 not any other version although there is v75 nd some othe up models but i dont think they are good like v70 i use it with full brightness nd use it for all purpose surfing gaming messaging nd it lasts easily a day same is not case with my s4 which lasts for few hours evenn on low brightness.i am also thinking to sell my s4 nd use my voice if i dont get solution for battery life cux if i have to switch off all its smart features nd turn its brightness to lowest thn why the hell i dont buy nokia 1616... -_- s4 screen or graphics is definitely much much bwetter nd brighter than v 70 but battery timing.......
shubham yadav, 04 Apr 2014According to your budget, s4 is far better than any other phone available. Don't hesitate. As ... moreto be very very honest i think that samsung is now not fair with their customer cux here in pakistan we have a brand voice which is new mobile brand i have a v70 too its battery backup is far far better than s4 of mine nd with 1gb ram it runs all games very smoothly no single lag or frame drop i ever noticed on it.it also have a 13mp camera like s4 have.....very sadly saying it is almost equal in pik quality of s4...i bought s4 cux i knew it would be the best but now i am thnking i have done a mistake s4 with 2600 mah battery nd that voice v70 with 2300 mah still it has much much beter battery timing than s4.....nd it cost 20000 in pakistan pinpack nd s4 is still in 50s range with warranty nd without warranty its in 42 or 43

kartik00003, 03 Apr 2014latest kitkat update for S4 is 86mb but why does it take much larger data via kies to update??Hi Kartik,
After lot of googling, I found that if you are downloading update via wi-fi or 3G connection, it downloads only shown package size which is generally in MBs whereas if you updating through Kies, it downloads entire package file which if u notice is more than 1GB. Try to do OTA (over the air) update.
Hanuri, 04 Apr 2014Hi Shubham i've given the details thank u very much for your help.

And i don't have them. I earlier did but found a way to get rid of heating and heating causes battery drain. So either you have both heating and battery drain or none of them.
Go for s4, it's far better than moto x or note 2.
Have a nice day
shubham yadav, 03 Apr 2014As with kies, you download the full firmware instead of just the updated libraries. So it's al... moreHi Shubham i've given the details thank u very much for your help.
