When you first get it out of the box, it is the phone you always wanted. Unfortunately, as with all Samsung products (and they aren't alone with this), this doesn't last long.
First they 'upgraded' it to Lollipop - this phone just doesn't have the grunt to run Lollipop and do any thing that the user wants.
The phone was replaced with a KitKat build and all was well as most updates were turned off, but there are updates and changes that it seems can't be turned off, so the gradual updating of things eventually - after just 11 months - has rendered the phone to be little faster than the ancient one it replaced.
The only way to return the phone to a good working state is to factory reset it - which then means starting again with all your settings and tweaks.

yurikovic, 06 Nov 2015hello bro can anyone tells me what is the diffrence between samsung s4 gti9500 & gti9505?its the same.
I bought it 2 years ago. the last 4 months I had some problems. first can't find (non-registered network) and as I shaw in youtube that has to do with problems in sim connector. 2 weeks ago refuse to open 2 times but after many hours opened. since last week it is dead.
