amit, 02 Jul 2013i am from india. i have s4. i got the last 28mb update a week ago. i had overheating issue sin... moreonce you update the phone, the cpu has a lot of tasks to do and optimize every app and it makes mediaserver run and make the phone heat a lot.
yes these temperatures are slightly higher but don't fear. in 3-4 days time these will drop(personal experience). also a high end device with so much processing power will heat up.
my temps: charging 34, scrolling and doing light activities 35, playing temple run or subway surf 41, heavy benchmarking 44-46. playing temple run 2 while charging 50. these temperatures are by disabling almost all the features, power saver on and data traffic disabled. also brightness is around 30%.
so please disable data traffic and the features you don't use. they unnecessarily heat the device and drain battery.
as long as you can tolerate the heat thats fine and the silicon and polycarbonate can handle temperatures upto 150 degrees celcius. so no worries. also the heat is on the part i don't use so it doesn't bother me.
have a nice day. feel free to ask me questions.
MANOJ, 02 Jul 2013Hi, dear S4 users, could any of you please tell me whether this phone lags while scrolling thr... moreno, it doesn't lag even a bit. the only time lag I've seen is while opening the contacts app for the first time after killing it in task manager. it takes 2 sec to open. it's only in contacts app and once it opens, the next time it opens instantly. and that problem also will get cured by an update.
if u use it properly than there's no lag at all. if you are into a powerful phone with tonnes of features and comes with touchwiz which lets you do more out of everything and has a fantastic camera, buy it. you will not regret.
for more info, read gsmarena's review of galaxy s4. you'll be convinced. this phone is an all rounder.
Amit Sharma, 02 Jul 2013Thank you shubham, its superb. than why my phone is taking time upto 4 hrs almost. Is any role... moretry to make a factory reset and make the charge 0. it means let the battery run dry or empty. then charge the phone. i think that should stop the problem.
the s4 is with a 2 ampere charger which should ideally charge it in around 1 hr 20 min. but due to non ideal behavior this may be so. if you are using the genuine s4 charger then it shouldn't take this much time. if the problem persists with the official charger after factory reset, you please go to service center and replace your unit.
question: does it heat after plugging it to charger? if yes than the heat is getting dissipated and not going much into charging.
yesterday I bought this ph. bT I didnT got any firmware upate....it shoes d latest updates hav olrdy been installed.....please can sm1 tell me about this...

Blake, 02 Jul 2013MMS requires mobile data to be turned on, You can have wifi on but dont disable moble data. Yo... moreI always have my data turned on 4g/lte as well as wifi whenever im in at home and such and it detects it but when i try and send an mms it has the spinning wheel forever and when i try to download a mms that someone has sent me it says cannot download message. I can see that when i try to send or receive it automatically switches off my wifi and uses my 4g/lte but it still doesn't work unless i disable the wifi.
If you would like to control any TV with your Galaxy S4, you can try "Galaxy S4 Universal Remote", a user-friendly application which does not require any external hardware or internet connection. We will be constantly updating the app to add more devices. If your device is not supported please send us your device info and we will add it for you.
For all the features available, check the application description and screenshots at Google Play (just copy and paste the application name at the search bar). Feel free to offer any suggestions :)
After two back to back firmware update in India I cannot use Stock Video app directly. It can be started only from Gallery app. Any clue or idea why Video App to see videos are not running.
