Any one know why my battery is so trash? Used up 10 percent with 20 minutes of WiFi...
Hi, i recently bought the s4 i9506, it showed me lte network after i updated to 4.4.2 and 4G works just fine.
for those considering to buy it, go ahead. It's an awesome device.
One wish is that it doesn't show connected to wifi in battery usage even though it's switched off. nonetheless battery is fine. if anyone else has this please reply
Unfortunately you have bought the 3g model. Tbere are 2 models 3g and 4g they look exactly the same except for the 4g capability of the later model. If you have only just bought the phone it might be possible to exchange it for the lte 4g model. Sorry to bethe bearer of bad news
I bought it like 4 days ago the battery last a full day with moderate use to heavy. If i play games like asphalt it will give u like few hours of play.
4g works great but ofc batery drain fast when downloading.so in other words just like any other smartphone battery.
This is the best phone on market regarding price and performance 2.3 cpu adreno 330. Very pleased with it bought it for 299 euro
I have probably done something stupid and now can't fix it. Why is my screen on the camera green? It doesn't allow me to see what I'm capturing. Its ok if i want a selfie but not for normal shots. Help please :)

I bought this phone yesterday and the battery life sucks. If wifi on, the battery drains almost 1% per 1 minute. SAMSUNG PLEASE FIX THIS!!!
Sh.Faisal, 09 Dec 2014Which software you use to update your phone with different country update? I am using KITKAT 4.4.2 .
I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 i9506 recently. I have also installed a 4G SIM card.
When I tried to activate 4G/LTE I find that the phone does not provide me 4G/LTE capability.
Here's what I have;
Android Version: 4.4.2 (Kitkat)
Baseband version: i9506XXUCNJ1
Kernel Version: 3.4.0-2587343 dpi@SWDD3016#1 Mon Oct 20 15"11:07KST 2014

Network Mode only shows;
Have I got a dud phone ? or can I do something to get 4G/LTE?
Any advice will be appreciated
can you tell me your opinion about battery life? Snapdragon 800 is better than 600 in power efficiency ?

When I... moreHi,bro don't worry about it. I also have the same problem. I went to my carrier first they inserted the 4G sim and than he manually enable the LTE on my i9506. Unfortunately I changed my sim and manual setting was lost. I will again revisit him to activate LTE.
There are other flash-rom based platform you can use. But I personally prefer manual settings until update.
