Never update your s4 to kitkat.I have found solution for s4 kitkat battery drain.. I think its just my unit.. I have change mobile network to 2g only for text and calls.. I have done what they said in the internet. Hard reset then wipe partition.. then wipe data/reformat. Then reboot.. Another thing (only my opinion) 4.4.2 kitkat is for nexus devices.. as you seem fit nexus devices does not have micro sd card.. I removed my sd card and let my s4 drain till 0% battery.. maybe the battery drain is from the sd card.. bcoz nexus devices doesnt have sd card.. and kitkat is not optimized for s4.. with minimal settings.. my s4 is 83% percent just on standby for 35hrs.. I will drain it to 0 and tell you how many hours it can endure..
my galaxy s4 is a UAE version, and it is still Jelly Bean. it cant update to Kitkat.. what to do? will i root it?
After the kit kat update i believe it is time for root. I will drop anything i can from the phone...
You can install update of new firmware KitKat 4.4.2 by insatlling Samsung Kies and plugging your samsung galaxy s4 into your computer(desktop r laptop)if your samsung galaxy s4 doesnt install firmware updates autoamatically via wifi.
My s4 drains so fast in kitkat.. Yes its smoother and faster than jellybean.. Wish samsung had optimized the kitkat os and removed too much bloatwares rather than just push kitkat aggresively to update by consumers.. This is my last samsung phone.. I will switch to g3.. Amoled drains battery fas.. I would go for an ips and good battery backup..
Anyone receive any kind of software update or firmware update after upgrading to kitkat 4.4.2 ???? please let me know :)

Hi my Samsung Galaxy s4 LTE GT-I9505 is still not upgrading to 4.4.2 from 4.3 JB, I live in Kosovo, Prishtina the device is from UK -BTU (GT-I9505ZWABTU) I need help﻿
Simply amazing phone and a great upgrade from S2. Great bezel in a galaxy line phones. Also nice battery power with Android Kitkat......
I've had this since august last year and i notice that it start to get slower and I have reset it several times and it needs to be rebootet more often, especially when I and the caller can't hear eachother..
I have also replaced the battery but the power consumption is still getting worse.
Not sure if I want to upgrade to S5 after this experience with samsung..
