Hmmm, I think it's normal, as we know there are millions s4 out of there, which means OTA is coming out part by part, like some user update in day 1, some user in day 2, some in day 3, and so on, because not matter how powerful server and bandwidth they got, I don't think it could possibly withstand the pressure of updating millions device at same time or very short period...
if my words are useful or helpful to you , i will appreciate it you click thanks button
