Galaxy S4 update hitting the phone for Telus & Koodo customers

The Galaxy S4 for Telus/Koodo (possibly Bell, Virgin, Rogers & Fido as well) is now receiving a nice update that brings many tweaks to the amazing device, including the ability to move apps to the SD Card.

This is good news for users who own the 16Gb version of the Galaxy S4, which ships with only 9.15GB of user accessible storage space. This update alleviates this storage crunch by letting users move apps to the SD card. It also slightly increases available storage to 9.23GB.

Besides the app to SD card feature, this new firmware also includes the following:

-Stability & performance upgrades
-slight increase of internal storage
-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)

Galaxy S4 owners can update their handset using Samsung Kies software or wait for the update to arrive over the air.

*Update – After moving what I can I gained a full 1gb of space on my internal storage which is awesome IMO.
Update took about 45 minutes to complete so make sure you have the time. It’s also just over 300mb in size so have the space available to download before install.

I’m sure Bell & Rogers & their sister companies are also receiving this great update as well, but if someone could confirm this we’d really appreciate it. Thanks.

Have you received the update, how do you like it & do you notice a performance boost?

  1. You forgot to mention that the Media button is gone for good.
    Now, unless you have the Data usage clicked off, once you go off WIFI, you go Media. Not sure I like that. I kind of like the button option before, easy access to turn on or off.
