Users of the Samsung Galaxy S4 have a pleasant surprise waiting for them. Their days of bugging issues appear to be ending soon, what with Samsung announcing an update for the device. The most common bug that had been tormenting the otherwise popular gadget had been its storage management. The latest upgrade to come is sure going to make this something of a bad past memory only.
The other important feature that the update would give the users of the Galaxy S4 is the ability to move applications to the micro SD card. The Galaxy S4 comes with 16 GB of internal; storage. But most of this space is taken up by the OS as well as the TouchWiz UI that runs over the OS. The user finally has just 9.15 GB of storage space left to play around with. After the update is applied, users would get 9.25 GB on the internal memory.
Other interesting features that the update comes with include better photographic abilities so that HDR recording will now be possible. The status bar would turn semi transparent and the notifications area can be toggled with the Smart Pause Toggle feature. Users of the gadget had complaints about a purple effect visible when scrolling on the gadget. This effect would not be there anymore post the update. For setting the secure boot status user can do that from Settings-> About Phone. There are also some more icons which users would have at their disposal.
SamMobile reports the upgrade is currently available for the Samsung Galaxy 4S models which run on the Sanpdragon processor that is the GT-I9505 models. Users in Germany only, with this variant would be able to download the update and install the same on their gadget. In the near future, those who own the GT-I9500 model also would be able to download the update which in turn will be made available to other parts of the world as well soon.
