    I tried updating my s4 to 4.3.2. But it says the latest updated have already been installed. But some have already installed 4.4.2. I tried manually by going to setting and clicking check for updated and by using kies as well. But none work out. What will be the problem? Pls do help me out with this.

    Cheers, Dev

    I updated my phone using the Russian version. Works well. I noticed a tilt feature which was not there before (I guess). The phone automatically changes to landscape/portrait detecting your face position using the front camera. I want to install the India version now. There is some bloatware in Russian version.

    Updated to 4.4.2. Had disabled Google Play Services on the earlier ver 4.3. After the update I continued with the disabled Google play Services. But now Gmail does not work. It asks for google Play services to be enabled.
