Any tips to achieve maximum performance in my S4?


You'd have to try custom roms and kernels for your phone while rooted. There isn't much support on the SPH-L720 when it comes to this. I don't think any of the custom ROMs on this phone model are near stable yet. Also can't seem to find any custom kernels for this variant.

It's a bit hard to explain what a kernel is so I'll link you to a webpage explaining kernels: http://www.androidcentral.com/android-z-...

You can find the content of custom ROMs / recoverys and maybe kernels in here:


Personally I wouldn't put any custom ROMs on this phone as they are no good as a daily driver and the kernel support is pretty bad. Like 0%. You'd have to stick to the stock kernel.

But there is one app in the play store I can recommend and that is called 'Root Booster' which of course requires your phone to be rooted.

There is nothing much else than that.


That link about the kernel was really informative. So you saying that it's a bad idea to change kernels on this model?


Yeah, the main problem is that I can't find any custom kernels for the SPH-L720 that are on lollipop 5.0.

There is 4.4.2 custom kernel like this one:



If I upgrade my S4 with the lollipop version you provided me in earlier post, will it improve the performance?
