Hope you're ok and the family.
It means alot to me. So this phone will not have spyware when knox is disabled?
It can be disabled but cant be uninstalled as long as it does not enable itself again like android system apps right?
I assume the galaxy s4 mini, note 3 and other samsung that have knox can be disabled.
AnonD-213506, 10 Dec 2013No FM Radio???
No, thanks!There are plenty of apps out there to bring you FM radio.
Granted these use data FM radio modules just don't seem to be overly important to manufactures these days.
E1, 10 Dec 2013Please , any solution for the battery lifetime ..........I am using different app for power sa... moreThe best battery-saving app for this phone is Snapdragon's 'Battery Guru'. It is made by the same guys that make the processor for the phone so is the best suited battery saver.
However, unfortunately the battery in this phone just isn't the best out there, not by a long way.
When I had it, I bought a couple of spare batteries and always had a charged one with me. You can pick up the standalone Samsung battery charger for around £25 ($40). Definitely a worthy investment.
rrig_UK, 14 Dec 2013Hello,
Why does the Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505 heat up, because I'm seeing some reviews about ... moreThe S4 may heat up after upgrading it to Kit Kat but this will most likely be due to the fact Samsung have not released Kit Kat for this device yet and therefore any version that's in it now will mean you've rooted your device. Rooting and firing a custom ROM into it is always going to bring with it some risks.
That being said, I have heard of a lot of these devices overheating and the battery swelling. I used to have one of these and I had 3 batteries with it (2 spare). 2 of these, in time, did swell. I've also heard a few horror stories of these swollen batteries eventually exploding.
In the case of my own one, I found that it overheated and suffered swollen batteries before I rooted it and stuck a custom ROM on it. It seems to just be a bit of an issue with some of these.
rrig_UK, 15 Dec 2013What are you joking, there knox in 4.2.2?!!
Can this be removed because thats got spyware... moreI saw the knox thing and disabled it,so no need to worry about that,I disabled a couple of apps that I don't use and haven't really seen much difference coz my s4 had always been fast and the battery lasts the whole day with heavy use,I play games(fifa 14;King of fighters 2012-A;Virtual Tennis;Asphalt 8 Airbone e.t.c) for more than 2 hours,make a couple of phone calls and sms plus 2hours of surfing... but now I have DStv mobile and spend at least 5 hours watching the channels. After all this no heating.Recharging from 0 to 100% takes 100 mins..this is the best phone ever.
