BEDE, 05 Sep 2013SORRY SAMSUNG..s4 I9505 have been made stunning performance but the battery life is dissapoint... moreBack up and Perform factory reset. Turn off voice command especially when not really needed.
joy, 08 Sep 2013is it jb 4.3 upgradable ?Not yet.. 4.3 will be available next month.. And that's for sure..
I hope that 4.4 will be available too after that update..
I hate the way Samsung dumps their apps on Android without letting users to uninstall what they don't require. Samsung should let users choose and install what they really need. Tens of apps always run in the background which make you suspicious. I guess people agree with me on this.
[deleted post]Maybe you bought it from a fake shop selling china copy apple products. It's very rare for people who bought iPhones that are complaining such complaints.

Let's say for instance that Samsung finish an update on 01/11/13. They then have to send the update out to each carrier in each country for approval. The carrier installs the update and then tries it out for let's say 2 weeks. Then the carrier reports back to Samsung on 15/11/13 and wants an alteration to the Firmware. Samsung have rewrite the Firmware and then send it out again. 2 weeks later the carrier reports back to Samsung approving the Firmware (now 28/11/13) and it gets released.
You moan about the slow update on your laptop. It's your connection at fault, not Samsung's problem.
My OTA update took less than 30 minutes. The file size is 1.6Gb, what do you expect on a laptop.
I downloaded a backup the Firmware for my own use. Now, I have a 60Mb Broadband Fibre Optic connection and that download took about 20 minutes (it took that long because it was a busy time of day).
Stop blaming everyone else.
4 sept -2013- yesterday- checked for update via handset-check for update- message received == etc etc update later or via kies -- so conncected to kies -- firmware update took 2 hrs - still 4.2.2 mh8.. wed aug 21 10.57.53 kst 2013 .. had checked via handset software update and kies - on 3 sept == latest software already installed !

Hi everyone, did anybody encounter the same problem with me? my phone all of a sudden lost data connection while browsing the internet. it says insert sim card and no mobile signal at all. i left it with samsung service center and was advised it's gonna be investigated for a week or two. i tried using a new simcard still no signal. i got it from Smart Mobile from the philippines and was just using the phone since july 23. I feel so bad i had to stick up with a phone for a 2 yrs in a contract that had been repaired after a month of use.
