Do you think we'll get S5 features/apps on S4 with updates?

Tip us?

Back when I had Sony, pretty much every time the phone was updated to a new version of Android, the phone got almost all of the features from newer phones. For example, with the JellyBean update, the Xperia S got the new Xperia Z launcher, Walkman, and media apps, and of course the revamped UI aesthetics.

Does Samsung usually do this as well? Or they just update the core OS and leave everything else as it was before?

Samsung maybe will do that but after months of waiting if you can and for few models, when the kitkat update to my GS4 it didn't change the luncher, Samsung is less active than Sony & htc in updating the skin .

I think we may get that update with the 4.4.3 update at July or August and maybe September.

shame on you SamSung

If Samsung bring out a S5 prime version then I think it be a much longer wait for any S5 apps coming over to the S4
