Galaxy Note 4 gets major software update

Samsung has started rolling out a major software update for the Galaxy Note 4 in Europe. Before you get your hopes up, it’s not Android 7.0 Nougat, the handset remains on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. However, the 403MB update does bring several improvements for the device as well as the latest security patch.

Firmware version N910FXXS1DQC3 is now being rolled out for the Galaxy Note 4 in Europe. The firmware update description reveals that it brings better stability and performance as well as optimizations for improving battery efficiency. There’s not going to be much in the way of new features in this update but that’s to be expected.

This Galaxy Note 4 update also comes with the March security patch that has 73 fixes for Android OS vulnerabilities and fixes for a dozen vulnerabilities that Samsung found in its own software.

The firmware is now being gradually rolled out across Europe so users will soon see an over-the-air update notification on their Galaxy Note 4. The update files are also available for download from our firmware section.

I just “upgraded” to the new update this morning and I’m wishing I had seen the reviews in here first. I am already experiencing the freezing up, the phone rebooting on its own and the screen being non-responsive. I wish I had never put this new update in. I thought I was going to make things better, not create more aggravation!

Ok… I got a notification of another system update. … It seems to be working better than it has in a long time!! You go Samsung!

I doubt that it brings any stability to Note 4 , because since MM was released, it caused many crashes/auto-reboots / freezings to many people. Just google for auto-reboot / freezing keywords on Note 4, check the results!

Hi, I also have a Note 4 (SM-N910F). Following the latest update my phone started freezing and switching off. So, I tried Kies to reload the update but it would not recognise my phone and suggested I try Smart Switch. I downloaded Smart Switch for PC and it recognised my phone and got to the point where it gave me an error number. But, then my phone shows this message “Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery in Kies & try again” I have taken about 5 days off and on to get to this point. Basically my phone… Read more »

I’ve had the same problem as you. Smart slSwitch downloaded the firmware and started installing it but at 70% it failed and said something about firmware recovery. After I installed the recovery firmware through Kies, my warranty was void…

They won’t update the note 4 to nougat.. device has 2 years+ . And it looks like this it’s a rule for Samsung, for their devices. It’s sad.. we love the Note 4.

I installed the security fix from February and now this security fix, but my Note 4 got nearly unusable. After February update my Note 4 crashed all ten to twenty minutes (complete reboot), then I changed my SD card from 200 GB to 128 GB and it got more stable, rebooting every hour…. so I made a complete hard reboot (deleted cache, everything) Installed my mayor apps again. Now my Note 4 reboot two up to four five times a day. And all mobile 4G access to data blocks my device until the data transfer is finished. Have any of… Read more »

I see no battery improvements. I think “the battery improvements” is the advertisement by Samsung so that people download these regular updates which are more of bug fixes as and when they find out to avoid another ‘Note 7 fiasco”.

There’s nothing “major” about this update. Don’t fool the readership. Just an ordinary security update as we are getting every month. And nothing ever changes.

Actually this is not really a “significant update” and / or “major update”; all security patches in the last months (at least since November) were in the range of 300-400MB (except one I think).

This is great news and it goes against a certain Sammobile writer’s continued statement that people don’t care about IR blasters and removable batteries, and that they have to upgrade to get a good phone, and that Samsung isn’t obligated to support older devices.

If so many people were upgrading or feeling pressured to upgrade from the Note 4, and Samsung was so interested in only pushing the latest devices, Samsung wouldn’t be pushing out such significant updates.

This is good for Samsung, it shows they care a little about their users of such an “old” device.

Samsung just called you out!

But where nougat. Sure the note got it’s 2 updates but after the note 7 there are a lot of 4 users left. Also the phone can definitely run it becuase the Nexus 6 has the same chip and does fine. Come on Samsung show us some love

If you want to upgrade yout Note 4 N910C, same like mine, you can upgrade it manually, all firmware that starts from this “N910COLB” firmware. I downloaded the latest firmware from Thailand and flash it manually via odin and after boot, I change CSC to GLB, coz I am using globe SIM, it depends if what SIM you are using. The countries that included in that firmware is CAM, GLB (globe), SMA (smart), THL , XME, XTC (open line), XTE (sun), XXV. Hope that this can help. I already upgraded my Note 4 N910C GLOBE.
