shubham yadav, 22 Jun 2013THIS IS FOR ALL WHO ARE EXPERIENCING LAGS OR OVERHEAT AND @GEORGE when i firstly installed me... moreHey. Thanks mate. Lets hope the battery decides to get back to the performance I was used to.
I have used it...It do have a lot of features, but after 1 or 2 week, you will switch off all those features except some...Many of the features are useless and also at times irritating. The design is the same as all Galaxy's..I feel it like Galaxy y in a big piece and added features. The cheap covers makes me feel iam holding something of low quality when compared to HTC One Metal body and Sony Xperia Z glass body..It has a lot of features using sensors and things, thats all i feel. I own an xperia Z now. I feel Xperia is the better option than S4..

Just feel overhyped and advertised people did some research have a friend with the s4 and another with iPhone 5 we all compared photos and video on and average day the HTC one just blew them away with the ultra pixal camera. People laugh about it being 4 megapixels but when they see actual photo comparisons they get very dissapointed. How many hrs in the day and days of the year have perfect lighting conditions for a s4 camera. I don't care what company makes the best phone just feel people get caught up to much on a brand name and image instead of doing your homework.
AnonD-107461, 21 Jun 2013Do you experience any over heating problem and slight lag????THIS IS FOR ALL WHO ARE EXPERIENCING LAGS OR OVERHEAT AND @GEORGE
when i firstly installed mea update, my phone started to heat up. it was ok before. i was afraid and wanted to switch back to mdk.
Hence i decided to do what i could. idid a factory reset and formatted memory card. after that i disabled samsung push and samsung link and many s apps that i don't use. also i disabled all of air features and eye features and also mobile data when i didn't use it.now after around 8 days even if i turn on the features it doesn't heat up. my phone is a cool 33 degree celcius in charging, reaches 45-46 degree on heavy browsing and games(3d) and 50 degree while charging and gaming. this is normal for me as it is a powerful phone and such processing power will make it heaT a li'll bit. there is a site showing that whereas the s4 heats at 49.9 degree max while htc one has 57 degree and s4 is hot at right place where i don't put my hands. i've s-view cover which allows me to get a call when its even 60 degree(although it never is).
also try a better sd card(class 10 ultra is recommended)
axtually when you install a new firmware, the cpu has many tasks as to set up a new firmware and optimise apps for new firmware. hence the cpu is used at heavy load and hence it gets heated up and battery life is less.
so please wait for 4-5 days and use every task atleast once so that cpu optimises it and don't worry if it heats or lags.
about lag i must say that now it is only while opening contacts app. that is ok now and will be fixed if u use nova launcher or wait till samsung makes touchwiz light ui(the contacts app takes whooping 80 mb ram and home takes 220 mb ram).
this lag problem u should tolerate the contacts app but otherwise the device is lag free(if u disable power saving the contacts lag is also gone!).
have a good day
I bought it a couple of days ago switching from my Xperia Arc. I have to say that this is totally the most amazing phone I've ever had. It's just perfect in everything it does, and I never had this great battery life in a smartphone too, which is important to me. I wouldn't hesitate for a second recommending this phone to anyone since frankly, it's pretty much class leading in every aspect, no matter what your needs are. It looks great in reality too, cutting edge, because the display covers almost the whole front.

I was happy before this update but now after 10 mins of internet usage the screen become more hotter than I've ever noticed before
So is there any way to roll back this update...
if any Plz reply here.. thanks in advance
A year ago, there was no question: Samsung made the best Android phones on the market.
From the screen to the camera to battery life, the Galaxy S3 bested its competitors before even getting to the litany of software features and customisations.
Samsung's impossibly powerful marketing arm then took those advantages and trumpeted them on every surface and airwave possible, and the phone took over the industry.
With the Galaxy S4, however, Samsung appears to be learning that you can't always buy a hit.
The phone came out to mild reviews, and next to the gorgeous HTC One and the omnipresent iPhone 5 it simply hasn't stood out in a crowded market.
As 1080p screens and 13-megapixel cameras have become commonplace, buyers have put a premium on design; Samsung's laundry list of features can't stand up to the fact that the phones next to it on the shelf just feel better in your hand.
end of the road for galaxy series, unless they do something amaizing with GS5 if ever happen!
Galaxy S4 momentum is slowing much faster than the previous version," JPMorgan told its clients.
Yes you heard that right, it is official!,
my thoughts that GS4 will never kicks off the same rate as S3 or even S2 successed is becoming a reality, and I was one of the first people who came here (as a Samsung fan) few months ago and repeatedly said that GS4 wouldn’t be a success as previous generation, and I was spot on. I remember at that time everyone attacked me.
Don’t get me wrong, I am the owner of S3 and love the phone for what it was 18 months ago, and before that I had S2 (amazing phone), but couldn’t believe my eyes when I see the next generation of galaxy (S4) which was again with another boarding plastic look, and not huge progress, or innovation compare to S2 or even S3.
Samsung failed to do its market research properly which cost them the huge losses in GS4 sale. Initially the sale was good, but now against the fantastic competitions like Sony, LG, NOKIA, and last but not least, amazing HTC, the new galaxy S4 looks and feels such a poor candidate.
Sony came up with amazing water proof idea, HTC amazing look and excellent processor, nice speaker, and it feels premier in hand, and even the poor old LG can show they can progress, and what Samsung does instead, come up with the same phone as S3, dressed as S4 and try to make a fool of their fans, GS4 was a insult to S3 owners!!! If I have S3 , there is no way in the world, you would change to GS4! Why would you?
No innovation, cheap look, and improved processor which absolutely makes no difference to the average user!
Sadly Samsung GS4 would kill the galaxy series in water, unless they make it water resistance next time!
this is my idea, and like to hear yours? and those agree and disagree!
