    Samsung Galaxy S5 receiving update for improved performance in Europe

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: July 23rd, 2014 at 15:43 UTC+02:00

    Samsung is pushing out a new update for the European variant of the Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F). It's not an update to Android 4.4.3 or 4.4.4, but it does include performance improvements that might be substantial given the update comes in at 194 MB, and should be useful considering the Galaxy S5 has quite a few performance issues for many users. The update is rolling out over the air with build number XXU1ANG2, and it will be a few days before it arrives on every handset in the wild. As always, should you not want to wait, you can try your luck in the Settings » About phone » Software updates menu.
