I've been using the Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4 Black Edition for almost ten months now. A couple of months ago I upgraded to Kitkat 4.4.2. Not once in 10 months have I had any problems with this truly powerful beautiful phone, no overheating, no freezing, nothing, just plain smooth sailing made even better with Kitkat. The screen size is perfect, the phone is super fast, it's a real jewel to own and use. It is still a class leader, even surpassing more recent phone. Now that prices have dropped a little, the S4 is even better value than ever. Can't wait for Lollipop to come. A truly great phone, excellent in every department.
can you please help me to remove the tickle vibrate while encoding an messege thanks
Im using this phone almost 14 months from 4.2.2 to 4.4.2 I'm not encountered a problem, overheating issue isn't true other wise user error not the phone. My techniques is every time mybphone get an update I'm always reformat to set the default settings by pressing Vol down + Home button + Power button after that I feel again my phone is always brand new because of smooth touchscreen, no lag, speed fast during apps execution and great camera.

Anonymous, 09 Nov 2014I'm sorry,but raja is rightLike I said, mine never heats up like raja said. So sorry to hear about your device having issues.
Galaxy S4 is perfect phone for me
-Long life battery
-Very fast (touchwiz)
-Nice User Interface (features)
-5.0 Lollipop (18mo last update)

Don't buy s4 this phone always get heat.Even your not using wifi,low battery.now a days samsung mobiles phone a not good.
I have At&t variant of Galaxy s4 running kitkat 4.4.2 i9505 version in Philippines.
YOur Galaxy s4 at&t version is already running i9505 version software (appear on start up logo), if yes, your mobile phone is permanent unlock and no need to unlock again.
My S4 is i337 from AT&T.It was unlocked so I can use my T-Mobile sim card. My software version is 4.4.2. My question is do I need to unlock again after I install the new software update from AT&T?
Was there any possibility that this unit will be upgraded into kitkat 4.4.4 or lollipop? any news about it guys?
This phone is one of the best, long battery life, no lag for about a month now don't think twice just buy it
Be careful, the display might break in your pocket without reason and Samsung will say its your fault. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There are many complaints from the customers, if you do a little research. You have been warned!
some times touch doen`t working... after few seconds it will works as it is...but mobile was good....
Which one would be best between Sony Xperia Z1com.LG G2, and Samsung Glaxy S4???
