Galaxy S5 update brings faster camera and improved fingerprint scanning

Firmware
By 

Last updated: May 12th, 2014 at 11:24 UTC+02:00

Samsung is currently rolling out the first software update for the month to the international variant of the Galaxy S5, starting in the UK. We took our Galaxy S5 for a spin after installing the update and found two very useful improvements. First, the camera is now noticeably faster to open, and so is the gallery app, which we found to be quite laggy in our review. Second, the update seems to have improved the accuracy of the fingerprint scanner – we already found it to be quite accurate even with one-hand usage, but this will hopefully improve the experience for those that the fingerprint sensor wasn't working well for.

There also seem to be general performance improvements and better RAM management post update, though these are usually noticeable immediately after an update before going back to how they were. The update is currently available over Kies and is also rolling out over the air, though as usual, it could take a while before it shows up on your device. If you're unwilling to wait, you can always download the firmware from our firmware section and update manually.
