Samsung's recently released Galaxy S4 smartphone is no doubt a popular device, but the smartphone had arrived with some performance-related issues that the company has tried to fix with a new software update.
Samsung Galaxy S4's 16GB version came under fire from reviewers when they discovered that almost half of the memory given was used by the 'system apps' and the users were given less than 9GB for actual use.
Earlier, the Korean company defended its stand saying that the memory was needed to give users benefit of the powerful display and other apps. However, with the release of new software update, Samsung has worked around the problem and delivered an indirect solution.
After flashing the new update on the Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505), users will be able to save apps in their microSD card. The users of Samsung Galaxy S4's 16GB version were, earlier, quite disappointed as they were not able to save apps in the microSD card and the internal memory was also not enough to install many applications in an expensive and high-end device like Galaxy S4.
According to SamMobile, following are the new fixes and features that come with the new firmware update:
-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)
The update, as of now, is only available for Samsung Galaxy S4's GT-I9505 version that comes with Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 600 clocked at 1.9 GHz. However, it will soon be rolled out for the other version, GT-I9500 that comes with octa-core Exyno 5 Octa processor.
The update is available in Germany right now, but it will soon be released for the other parts of the world.
