    Never had an issue with any of them to begin with, to be honest.

    I will say that the camera seemed to be updated, as well. Seems a bit sharper, quicker.
    Agreed as to camera. Opens instantly.

    I am newbie, so bear with my stupid question.

    Does the updates eat away at the internal memory, or does the update erase older files and replaces them with updated ones?
    Erases/replaces, by and large.

    Good stuff, good stuff. I just know people have quipped that air view was finickey and such. I wonder if the system will run better with them on now, as a lot of folks were turning them off to improve performance. This is reinforcing my planned purchase for Friday haha

    I'm kind of kicking myself in the *** for selling my Exynos version this weekend as it apparently got the same update. It was slightly faster as it was, let alone with this update.

    I'm new to AT&T and juat checked to see if I can get the update. No luck.
    But since I just got the phone 2 days ago, I'm thinking it is already updated. Can I get a build or kernel number after yours has been updated?

    Go to "More" in options. Go to Date and Time. Set your date for May 8th. Try again.

    Disregard. I reset the phone and it processes and installed everything without anymore issues.

    Not seeing any changes as of yet though. Still as snappy as before. Is there a bullet list of what the update actually did?

    Or you could run root keeper to restore root post update.
    that doesn't work but I heard running moto chopper will root the device again

    Noticing all apps,even games opening MUCH quicker since update. IronMan3 for example would take several seconds to load whereas now it loads virtually instantly.

    The update seems to have made the phone much quicker, some of the weird animation stutters are gone. It dropped the RAM used from over 1gb to 700mb's. Haven't tested camera or gallery.

    Just got the update and right away I notice it has enabled google location services as my device prompted me to check in at home. Phone seems faster but I actually do still have a slight lag when I open my gallery. Camera opens super fast now, before it had a slight lag.

    Edit:

    Streaming Netflix and it looks a lot better than it did last time I did. I could have sworn I had a ton of blue ghosting in the first few minutes for Fringe episode 1 the other day. Today I replayed it and no ghosting was visible. However I still see a slight lag in the settings bar when I scroll fast, but it's nothing major by any means.

    I didn't have an issue with lag on this one.. but I'm not sure if it's just me, but the camera seems more sharper? lol I was going to return this phone because i thought my pictures were kind of grainy (on both the front and rear cameras and didn't have this problem with the first S4 I had).. but after the update, it either went away, or my eyes were just blurry LOL..

    but things are smooth and fast as usual but I think i might just bite the bullet and return this and wait for the 32GB.. (i can't decide yet, but have a couple days to decide)..

    My phone stuttered a lot, especailly when closing apps. When I played videos is was a little choppy. The whole experience was frustrating becuase it was doing it more than older Android phones I had in the past. Now the animations are smooth and the videos are normal. I was seriously thinking about returning it after watching reviews and reading other people say they had no lag. I've installled Nova launcher and it's even better now.

    no one has mentioned it, but is there any potential for this update to mess with djrbliss's unlock method? I could have sworn I saw somewhere that updating it could cause the method to not work. We're still a few weeks away from his release

    As a new Android user, I thought the lag time for my camera to open up was due to the "lag time" issues posted lately. The AT&T upgrade this afternoon seems to have corrected that. I"m much happier with my GS4 now. I like my GS4 but am looking for reasons to trade it for an HTC One before my trial period is over. The camera issue was big with me. Getting a quick pic comes in handy for a whole variety of reasons. I'm liking my GS4 more and more
