    Hello there,
    I just updated my S4 GT-i9500 today and the problem is that after the update the top of the screen has changed colour.
    One can clearly notice the DEEP BLUE colour instead of pale blue that there was before. Its not a big part of the screen.just the part where the smart stay icon, battery life etc appear..
    its really annoying.i was wondering whether its due to the update of a hardware problem?
    thank you

      What version do you need? 4.2 or 4.3?

What's my model number?

There are several ways to locate your model number:

Option 1
On your device, go to Settings, then "About device" and scroll down to "Model number"
Option 2
Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery
Option 3
Using Samsung's model/serial number location tool
