I've had the I9500 S4 for about 2 years now, its a great phone and specs are still very decent I recently upgraded to Android 5.0.1 lollipop, the interface is smoother and there are some new features. My main complaints have always been the battery life and low ringtone volume. You can boost the volume up but that will lower the sound quality. I charge my phone twice everyday and I am not even a heavy user. 2 hours of web browsing and it drops to 50% . If you look at the endurance rating of this phone its pretty low at 66hours, compared to some new phones which get 50% more time at around 95-100 hrs endurance rating. I'm going to get a new phone soon and I'll make sure it lasts longer, s6 active or A8 maybe.

Gash-2401, 14 Sep 2015Thanks for your insight! How's your experience with S4? How frequently you face hangs, lock up... moreActually dude, I no longer owe a S4... The only lag I used to face was the touchwiz lag ( opening the gallery app takes time,etc).... Currently I have the note 3 neo, moto G 3rd gen and planning to a J7 and gathering funds for the note 5....

IR, thermometer and all are not that necessary... The main thing is camera and performance, its camera is ok but performance is not that great as of now... I think that the J7 is much more better choice than the S4 today....

Also I don't think that can be the problem... Because even after uninstalling these 2 apps only max about 250mb data is cleared, my phone already has 500mb RAM always free, even after installing ample of apps... If uninstalling these 2 apps is making your phone smooth then you must check your internal memory... Its good to keep about 1-2gb always free in order to keep the phone good running...!!

Fast, elegant, with a bunch of features (IR, thermometer, air-gesture etc.) and very, very nice amoled display. Sound on this phone (calls or headphones) is also great. And today is cheap. But still very capable.
I also want to buy this phone.It has air gesture and air view which i love it.So please anyone can give me suggestion on its hanging and fast discharging and how to recover it.
