Anonymous, 27 Jul 2013well what i percieve it was the quot by a person that take daily take an apple and never goes... moreReally, are you comparing apples with motorola? Do not know what you want to say.
After using S2 and S3 ,I have changed S4.Oh my god It is superb.Some of my friends facing heating problems and firmware update issues.But I didn't find any of these issues and 100% happy with my new S4.
Good Job Samsung and looking forward S5.
well what i percieve it was the quot by a person that take daily take an apple and never goes to hospital
hence you all get my opinion compare then other hand sets brant apple is more and more and more difrent and beneficient as i use i make and iphone 4 and latest version of 5 that is mind blowing as compare to HTC SAMSUNG NOKIA MOTOROLA bcz motorola features are too hard to expect what im here too say simply just you use iphone samsung htc and sony to enjoy ur life bt compare than these brand 1st rank goes to IPHONE
nirav, 27 Jul 2013hi dear, i live in ahmedabad.
i have updated my galaxy s4 to latest update via kies today. it... moreKIES>>LAPTOP/COMPUTER>> DOWNLOAD>> THEN DOWNLOAD TO HANDSET >>INSTALL on handset >> update apps /systems == update --so speed dependant on laptop processor in step 1 .. while OTA== direct download to handset >> install and update .. half the time of via kies .. make sure battery of handset is at least 80% charged .. and please remember --updates ARE DONE IN BATCHES VIA KIES OR OTA.. so if you miss your slot availability -- then hard luck ..MISSED IT .
OUR S4 25 JULY - WE CHECKED via kies and ota at about 5pm local time =NO UPDATE ..THEN AT 11 PM - ota no update ..but full update via kies .. release date june .. so we have been checking everyday- AS ADVISED .. 4weeks+ for kies to slot update for our handset.. also no update available at 5pm ..then 11pm update .. MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO IN DAILY HUSTLE BUSTLE .. ?? lesser cumbersome less time consuming process for UPDATES AVAILABILITY ..WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU MISS YOUR SLOT FOR UPDATE ? AND why should LAPTOP /PC be needed for ( WIRELESS) MOBILES UPDATES ?

i have updated my galaxy s4 to latest update via kies today. it is the same firmware u have mentioned I9500XWUBMG5. i am also getting the update via OTA. The kies takes almost 2.5 hours to download and update the firmware. kies download the whole firmware which is around 1.6 to 1.7GB. so, it takes so much time as u have mentioned. dont close it between. let it complete the download and update. it is more safe and secure than OTA. coz OTA downloads only require files not the whole firmware. so,do it via kies. it is more secure and safe than OTA.
s3 or s4 ??, 26 Jul 2013Hello,
if there is anyone who used both s3 and s4 please answer me...
I want to by a new pho... moreHi dude,
I have used S3 & Note2, but I found S4 better in all way. I'm frm India & haven't faced yet heating issues or video quality issue wen compared to S3 & Note2. Battery life is equivalent to Note2.Little heat all high end Android has & even iPhone 5(Which I used n sold in just 18 days due heating issue). But wen u will Use S4 flip viewer cover u wont have any issue. This was my opinion.
Nik Vel, 27 Jul 2013Hey all..
Can anyone suggest me an app where I can schedule my meetings and conference calls.... moreHi Nik,
Pls try inbuilt S-Planner on ur S4 device..its vry helpful to me atleast in scheduling & reminding.
Pls can anyone from Pune or India advice me. I m getting this upgrade info Kies wen m connecting my S4 to PC:
"New Firmware upgrade Available:
Current firmware versn: PDA:MG1/PHONE:MF8/CSC:MG1 (INU)
Latest firmware versn: PDA:MG5/PHONE:MF8/CSC:MG5 (INU)"
Wenevr m upgrading 1st it s downloading al files fr upgrade bt while putting those upgrade into my device Kies taking toooooo much time n in 2hrs its just able to get thro 13-20% only..due to which thrice I've cancelled the upgrade. :(
Is anyone facing this prblm? As this upgrade is not coming on OTA. Earlier I did 3-OTA upgrade(Now on OTA it says pls try via Kies as u've already done many upgrades via OTA)
