so did any1 update to the third iteration of 4.3 in India? baseband seems to be changed. i haven't updated yet.
Hi. My S4 fell (less than half a metre) and broke the screen. How easy? It was one week old.

because even after performing ordinary factory reset, we get to save a lot of RAM.
can you tell me the size of the update?
Well After the 4.3 second update, suddenly my phone started behaving abnormally some process kept on / off. this hung the phone very badly , but was lucky to make back up .
So i master reset the phone and erased all in it. Now two things happening, my battery life is suddenly crossing to the next day, and obviously when so much cluter of apps is gone, available internal memory is double than previously. Also i noticed persistent RAM at 1.0-1.2 GB, prev i always got notification like >80%, kill some apps regularly..
So in disguise this hanging problem was a blessing, so many problems gone now. People having 4.3 post problems shd get backup first and then master reset/format the phone after taking out sim and SD card (somewhere it was mentioned, but no reasons why, may be it was the trick, as even samsung would be doing it without sd card and sim in their factories!!)
shubham yadav, 07 Nov 2013The main problem was the depreciating value of rupee. The regularly decreasing value of rupee ... morebro i think that's not the case. Usually samsung follows a 90 days price drop scheme on it's premium phones in india.. You can check it on google that after launching S3 in June 2012, the price drop had happened in september and then again in december and that too is over 3000 both the times.. You can't understand how desperatly I want to buy S4 but can't buy it coz of maximum budget of 32K-33K.
ivans424, 08 Nov 2013I had bought my s4 for 35k in Sept, there was a 15% cash back that time. Now that offer is gone. There is some 10% cash back right now, When I went get a case for my S4 to Reliance Digital and the price was 41449

Which is the better model i9500 or i9505, and where is the difference between these models of Samsung Galaxy S4?
ashishb2412, 07 Nov 2013Does any1 from india knows when to expect price drop on S4?? I m desperate to buy this but don... moreGalaxy s4 price drop will occur around may 2014 when galaxy s5 will release.Galaxy s5 will probably come with 64 bit cpu,and 4gb of ram,may be flexible display.
After upgradding my s4 to 4.2.2 it keeps rebooting what do I do to stop it from rebooting? Some body help.

I accidentally deleted the Camera Specs in my Samsung Galaxy S4. How will I be able to install it again..

The regularly decreasing value of rupee from 50 per dollar to above 60 did that. That is also one of the reasons of getting note 3 at 50k. I expect huge price drop at s5 launch. But it should reach 33-34 k around december.
have a nice day
ashishb2412, 07 Nov 2013Does any1 from india knows when to expect price drop on S4?? I m desperate to buy this but don... moreTrue its nearly 7 months since release and in England most pay as you go prices are over 500GBP ,over 49,233.25 INR .
Gash2401, 07 Nov 2013I have had a similar experience post the upgrade to 4.3, and on doing a little bit of research... moreYes there seems to be an issue with location services. Too many wakelocks. But if you disable google now, you will find lesser wakelocks for location services. Location services are important at some point, so you can disable google now.
Does any1 from india knows when to expect price drop on S4?? I m desperate to buy this but don't wanna spend 37k coz my budget is only 32k-33k.. Samsung has not droped it's price since launch MRP 41500.. Plz if any1 know about price drop then do let me know.
Reg Battery Issues Since 4.3 update.
I was really upset and planned to reset the phone finally today. I did try using the vol power and home key. It did take me to the Android symbol page but it did not reset. I was thr in that page for a sec or 2 and then phone restarted , may be cause I did not do it well. But to my surprise battery draining issue is fixed to an extend. Am getting 14 hrs almost now which is almost double when compared to yesterday and also to my surprise the wifi which was not connecting since june to my work network , post the 348MB update on 4.2 now that started working fine.
REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHATS HAPPENING.
I just changed from iphone to sony to Samsung... and I must say im very impressed with Samsung galaxy s4 in terms of camera, speed, functions, weight. Overall im happy and after this phone ill probably keep using Samsung. Thanks Samsung :)
ivans424, 07 Nov 2013Did you try using better battery stats or wake lock detector? Could you find what's wrong and ... moreI have had a similar experience post the upgrade to 4.3, and on doing a little bit of research, found that this is an issue with many 4.3 users. The battery drain is caused by the "Android OS", and this is happening when you have your location features (especially using wireless networks) turned ON.
Disabling the Location Services helps a lot in the battery life, as it removes the wake lock created by this locator "bug".
