Samsung Galaxy S4 Very Likely to Get a Lift from Apple’s Possible Release of the iPhone 5SE!

As the smartphone is already close to three years old, Samsung has confirmed in November last year, just weeks after Google officially rolled out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates, that the Galaxy S4 and that Galaxy Note 3 will not be receiving the new OS anymore.

Apparently, Samsung has a good basis for no longer allowing Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates to the Galaxy S4.

It turns out that the device has been suffering from sub-par performance when it took in the official Android 5.0 Lollipop updates early last year that taking on further upgrade would have a telling impact on the performance, functionality, and usability of the device.

As a matter of fact, one Galaxy S4 user stated in an online public forum that immediately after he took in the Android 5.0 Lollipop update last year, his smartphone started to crawl. He said that he used to open his e-mail in two seconds but with the Lollipop update, the procedure has gone on to as much as 20 seconds.

The user also complained that the map has been completely hosed. He also finds it difficult to navigate the length of his street, about one-fourth mile, without crashing the whole phone. He also added that the update has seemingly bricked his phone.

He added that he could have just bricked his phone if he knew that the update would practically slow down his handset.


  1. The only reason Samsung couldn’ t update the S4 past 5.0.1 is because of all the bloat they keep on installing on their phones.
    We don’t want any of it. We can download what we want. Windows 10 take note.

  2. I’m running Cyanogenmod Marshmallow on my S4 and it’s running fine, no problem at all. Just make sure you have a very fast memory card installed and it’s as good as new.
