First Update Now Rolling Out To The Galaxy S4, Helps With Storage Issues


Remember that big ordeal about the Galaxy S4 and its storage space when it first came out? It appears that Samsung did indeed listen to their customers and a new update has been released for the Galaxy S4 to solve that problem along with a multitude of others. The update is currently rolling out in Germany with the most notable improvement being the storage issue. Users now have 9.23GB of available storage which is up from 9.15GB. More importantly, the ability to move apps to the microSD card has come with this update.

The update also includes some other fixes and improvements such as updated camera firmware, the ability to record HDR video, a fix for the purple smearing issue while scrolling, and a new Quick Settings toggle for Smart Pause. The update isn’t small at 365.67MB but it’s certainly worth installing as it brings several fixes and some new features. Here’s the full list of what’s included, courtesy of SamMobile:

  • New Camera firmware
  • Smearing issue has been fixed (Purple effect while scrolling)
  • Smart Pause Toggle
  • Move Apps to SD Card
  • HDR Video (Can record HDR video)
  • Semi-transparent status bar
  • New Icons in Settings
  • Secure boot status (About Phone)
  • Increase legibility (Display) (New feature)

While the update is going out in Germany, we don’t know when it will roll out to other countries yet. But when it does, we’ll be sure to let you know because this update sounds like it should be a good one. Anybody excited for this update?
