I have been using this phone for 2 months now..
issues that cant be resolved:
1) when speaking on the phone , it heats up so badly your ears begin to burn and go red....
2) camera takes over 10-20 sec to boot up...if it does not...it crashes...
It also keeps rebooting itself.
AnonD-89109, 30 Oct 2013Download Indian/Russian 4.3 ROM (MJ8), flash it with Odin. Simple.How do i down odin and install on my s4 19502 so i could get update 4.3?
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2013What is the difference between Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4 and Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4CPU Quad vs' Octa. You can view the specs of both i9500 and i9505 on this website and compare.
This phone has everything! Samsung keeps adding annonying sensors and takes out the radio. Same old Samsung.
Next phone from Samsung: same design, more processors, more useless sensors, more junk... They forget that a phone should be treated as such.
Anyway, does anyone hear own a Nokia Lumia, or an iPhone? Now THOSE are phones.

What is the difference between Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4 and Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4
Well it is not that i do not like iphone but obviously s4 and android is more user friendly. Now if you say some more speed specs , you shd consider the facts iphone is powering a much small screen with much less pixels and obviously an IPS screen, it will be fast, comparatively super amoled big screen with 445 ppi , cpu and gpu has to work for that.
i did not encounter any lag in android after NOTE 1. even if you see micromax hd in work , it is still very fast. It is android 4.3 which makes all smooth now.
and to consider i have iphone 4s too, which after ios 7.0 update is laggy , much more than android. if IP5 people argue ragrding that, i have IPAD 4 too, which too is laggy , especially coming from IOS 6 which was good.
Android 4.3 vs IOS 7 , it is android all hands down.

Saurav Ghosh knows better on that matter, so it would be better if he tells it.
ya you can say that for gallery but the app should open up pretty fast and images later on. I have a great sd card(class 10 ultra with 70 MB/s read) but it still takes a fraction of time for the animation to show up.
See the animation is very fast but it's delayed. Let's say the app opens in 1 second in both s4 and iphone 5s. Then the s4 takes .6 seconds doing nothing and .4 seconds for animation while the iphone starts at .1 seconds and displays animation for .9 seconds also making it go smooth. This creates the perception of lag in androids, the unsynchronization and unoptimization are the major reasons.
have a nice day
Why we cannot use FM Radio with Galaxy s4??? Can you explain for this matter????????????

Contents like images and music need to be loaded from sdcard. Since android provides more customization, it lags. Btw you didn't answer my question bro. Does flashing through Odin void warranty?
I have updated to 4.3 Jelly Bean.
And it is missing the most awaited feature of Restricted Profiles.
Samsung : Please provide the feature as a minor update.

So there is no effect of sd card there. This lag(0.5 sec) is due to non- optimization of android for a particular phone which is totally opposite to iphone. The iphone also opens the app in the same time but with a much smoother animation and hence it appears as there is no lag.
My camera app loads instantaneously and is always ready to take a shot. I am so much happy as this is the most major change brought by 4.3.

Since android galaxy phones support an external SD card that's why there could be lag. IPhone has only Internal memory which is a disadvantage. Lag is not that much. Now days even iPhones have started to glitch. Btw updating through odin won't void my warranty right? I have not rooted s4 but have experience in all these.

Those lag you're mentioning, they will never go, don't know how long it'll take it for the general people to understand, but lag is there in Android's ecosystem, you can not do anything about it. Vanilla, Linaro, all those things are nothing but hype.
can someone help me with how i can update my samsung galaxy s4 (19500) version here? Am in Ghana by the way.
Jellybean 4.2.2 doesn't support Flash, it is only available till ICS. you can instal adobe flash player from external market and can use it with built in explorer.
