Mine too. my S4s battery got fat. I noticed it when my phone started to act really weird. The battery percentage is still at 56%, it switch off itself and when I opened it again, it went down to 8%. I think I made the wrong choice of getting a Samsung. :(

Also think if you are travelling to non home region and hard reset your phone then you are suddenly have a dead phone and searching for if the country or city has samsung service center

I bought an s4 i9505 3 days ago and before buying i have checked all things needed to know if it's fake or not.. it has passed all the tests.. but what i am curious about is there was a "4G" logo at the back of my s4 which i couldn't see on any s4 i9505 images that i've searched on the net. Is my s4's casing fake?

I heard Samsung has SIM locked the phones region wise. So be carefully if you travel globally and use samsung phones then these phones are not for people travelling to another countries and buying local SIMS. So seems like paying unlocked prices for locked phones

The best way to lose all sympathy from other users is to post the same boring thing about 5 times.
Buy yourself a Nintendo 3DS and stop whining!
replaced my gs2, because of mother board problem and buy this phone 2 days ago. playing online games after 5 minutes makes my phone back camera and front very hot. only solution turn my phone off and keep it cool.worrying that this issue maybe affect the motherboard. very disappointed. using 4g network.
looks like it's a general problem...Phone reboots a lot!in fact samsung cud have pulled out smefin better if they had waited and not resorted to sketchy architectural designs and programming...
Good battery backup I can talk for 16.5 hours using 3g hmmn what the heck are we talking about fake s4 that someone is complaining 1.5 hours of talk time hmmn seems wierd for me just bought the phone and it last for 3 days
Hmmn.. seems alot of you is having trouble, I purchase my i9505 in the Philippines under Globe Telecom provider. I dont have any issues with it. 3 days of normal usage including music and and facebook. Well mates be sure to charge it including the trickle charge.. Install battery doctor and dont overcharge it because it will affect the main board and life span of the battery. make sure that you are charging it if it is below 20%.. No heating issues so far even if I play HD games. Noproblems at all super fast phone Highly recommended because I think samsung made some improvements on s4 lately compared to the ones who are purchased on its early release hope that helps.
officegirl, 31 Aug 2013Hi users of Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4, Have any of you experienced auto shutoff issues with y... morei have an update on the status of my phone. i brought it back to the service center last Sept 11 (wed) and reported that my phone still autoshutoff after they performed a reformatting. they asked me to leave my phone with then for several days for observation and to call back by Sept 13 (fri) for a status update. when i did callback, they told me that the phone's mainboard would be replaced. they released the phone to me by Sept 17 (tues). the phone has been working fine since then, no more autoshutoff! so i really had a defective mainboard before it was replaced. i guess the staff at that particular service ctr finally saw the problem so they replaced the mainboard as soon as the part was available. they also probably got fed up seeing me there for the nth time. i am happy to report that my problem with the unit is finally over.

the staff at the service center told me that batteries are covered under warranty for 6 months. just bring your official receipt when you get your battery checked. they would be able to replace it right away if they have available stocks. hope this helps!
got my I9505 4 months ago, and now its with Samsung service center because of shorted board and battery.
they'll be replacing the board and battery for free, but what the hell my phone is just 4 months old and I ahve to replace the main part? according to the samsung tech, it was over charged that's why the board shorted out and thats the cause why the battery got fat(shorted).
What I know is that new phone today has a built in cut off when iots fully charged even if left them over night, the charging will stop.
I think I got a lemon, and now im thiking to sell it already.
this is my first samsung smart phone and it didnt exceeded my expectation. My O+ 8.5 still works perfectly.
