There is a big issue with the sensors such as proximity and quick glance with the update which rolled out recently build number named MK9. The proximity works cool at times but at times after the screen goes black it won't turn on again, I have to press the home key to get the screen turned on again. Also the quick glance won't work at times.

SO FREEFALLEN - mySN- FOCUS on mobile communications tools for the humble masses .. NEVER MIND VERY EXPENSIVE TECH TOYS- LIKE S4- but useful s4 ..ok .now gsmarena mods- u can happily delete this response !!!
Shifted from iphone to Galaxy S4. A good change and all functions are cool. Camera is good. My Galaxy S4 fell from side table and landed on floor with the screen downward (S-Cover opened up during fall). Assumed that phone gone but fortunately screen remained unhurt and all the functions and sensors working fine. Its better to have some protector cover or bumper case.
S4 plus points are good camera, battery and screen resolution. Net also works ok. Jelly Bean is user friendly and it can be customised as per user requirements.
