Samsung products are so overrated bigtime. A bunch of garage in the market. i tried s3, iphone4 and 5 and now s4. unfortunately my s3 is no longer working and my s4 is now with Samsung smartcare clinic. No signal. No imei. WTF!!! while my iphone 4 and 5... still alive and kicking!!! don't waste your money with samsung gadgets.
I own it! It is after iPhone! Better all the way: battery, screen,usage, default apps. No heat up, no battery drain. BUT you need to tweak a little beat. Do not use with all options on. Activate them on the time you need. It is a powerful smartphone with a battery of this time. Enjoy!
Updating my S4 software.. Wifi keeps on dropping.. Poor S4 wifi, still experiencing the same problem since I bought this phone.. Think twice before buying...
AnonD-199710, 25 Oct 2013I got 4.3 last night.. hi, how's the update, please keep us posted if how's the update going,like the fluidity of the fone and the changes and advantages and if any disadvantages after the uodate..thanx in advance to u and more power..☆★♡♥
Will the phone be back to it's default settings if I do an update? Will it delete everthing? I'm still downloading the update via kies and I just wanna know if it will delete everything when I update it. Replies will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The reason that manufacturers are not pre-installing Flash onto their phones is because it is a quick way to install viruses onto your phone. If however you want to install that archaic program then goto:
About 2/3 of the way down the page you should look for 'Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives'.
If you don't like the keyboard the phone comes with then change it! There is plenty of choice on the Google Play Store... Touchpal X, Swiftkey, Google, amongst others to choose from.
iOS and Windows both suffer with the same setback; they are both 'closed systems', which means that you can't change anything. Don't like the keyboard? Tough! You use the one we give you and like it. Don't like the messaging app? Tough! You use the one we give you and like it.
That's where Android scores. It is an open system and you can change whatever you want.
Good luck with Windows phone though. I hope you like it.
I hated iphone with a passion then swiched to the galaxy s4 that I was dreaming about for a while, and found it just as diapointing, the freaking thing cant even read flash!! Which we used to brag iphone about, tooooooo freaking un easy to use, tons of features but nothing life changing, and stuff the display I couldnt care less about it, just give me deasent technology that I colud actually use with no dumb restrictions, i cant even type or use tge keyboard with ease. I'm putting it up for sale tomorrow and perhaos try windows mobile this time arround.
[deleted post]Pls. do not insult writers of reviews. They seek advice from forums, since they are helpless and sometimes made helpless by Samsung. The I9505 really heats up on the screen near the top (speaker area), enough to burn the ear. This heat up I have noticed only when the screen is fully illuminated. The battery temperature is about 40 Centigrade. Battery heating up could be an additional issue for some I9505 phones.
stowe, 21 Oct 2013please anybody that contact Samsung tell them to do something about the overheating or anybody... moreHi Stowe, do not waste your time on complaining to Samsung, they are not helpful at all. They will never accept any liability but direct you to the vendor of the phone. You are correct, the I9505 heats up in few minutes, enough to burn your ear.
