    I never had a lag issue with the old firmware, but I did notice that the battery was draining rather fast. 5% within the first hour had become normal since I purchased last weekend. Since the update, the battery seems to be more efficient now.

    I've not had any lag, battery issues, or the update, happy as I am to be honest.

    Does it give us some more internal memory?

    no, and no update will give any significant amount of memory if any at all. to gain memory, they would have to remove several features, and they arent going to do that.

    I am in the UK. A few days ago I downloaded a large update through Kies (it wasn't available directly through the phone).

    I am now on Android 4.2.2, build number JDQ39.I9505XXUAMDM. Is this the upgrade you are talking about, or is it a new one?

    Received the update this morning. RAM usage did drop for me, which is nice but I never ran into RAM issues before. Also, returning to the home screen from an app is a lot smoother now. That is where I saw the "lag" before a lot, which I'm pretty sure was just a framerate issue. The transitions when switching between apps is snappier too.

    I installed this AM. The update went smooth. I did have to use Motochopper to re-root. That was no problem. I do see an improvement in speed and smoothness.

    Maybe it was pre installed when I bought it? I haven't really noticed a lag outside of the occasional return to home screen.

    I have the same Android version as you, am I assuming this is the update, if so it must have been pre-installed.

    Nope, It's not the same and MDM lags.

    US getting the update first feels a bit strange though, it's usually the other way around so just have to play the waiting game now.

    I updated my AT&T S4 last night, and had no issues with the auto rotate at all, but I also didn't see any real significant improvement. My S4 was amazing before, and is still amazing.

    I did the update on AT&T. It seems a bit snappier in speed, but placebo can be very powerful!

    I got my S4, very happy, fast, smooth, no probs. I'd read that a few people had reported lag, but not noticed this.

    I then received an update (70mb in size), so I downloaded and installed. Now I have lag city. My S4 is considerably slower. Tapping contacts, messaging, email, camera icon etc. are much, much slow, in fact the whole phone just seems sluggish now.
    very disappointed and wish I'd never updated. :(

    My device is stating: I9505XXUAMDM.

    Why would they send out an update that breaks the phone?
