Galaxy Note 4 receives August 2017 security patch

The Galaxy Note 4 may not be eligible for any major Android platform updates but it’s still receiving the latest security updates. Samsung has rolled out the August 2017 security patch for the Galaxy Note 4.

This handset is almost three years old now and well beyond the two-year support window for major platform updates. However, Samsung is ensuring that some of its previous flagships receive the latest security updates. It rolled out the August security patch for the Galaxy S5 not too long ago as well.

It’s rolling out firmware version N910FXXS1DQH8 for the unbranded Galaxy Note 4 in the Netherlands. The update weighs in around 200MB and brings the August security patch. It also includes optimizations for the battery as well as tweaks for overall device stability and memory management.

The Android Security Maintenance Release for the month of August 2017 brings fixes for 28 vulnerabilities in the operating system. It also includes fixes for 12 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) which were found in the manufacturer’s own software.

Samsung has rolled out this firmware update for the Galaxy Note 4 in several markets across Europe, including Italy and Austria. Head over to our firmware section to check if it has been rolled out in your market.

Battery is draining like CRAZY after this update. Don’t fall for this cheap trick by Samdung. They want you to fork out money for the ridiculously tall/long Note 8.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ACHTUNG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HEY SAMSUNG DEV TEAM TECHIES! WE NOTE 4 USERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD BOUGHT YOUR NOTE 4. WE PAID TOO MUCH MONEY FOR THAT. WE HAVE STARTED WITH KITKAT, CONTINUED WITH LOLLIPOP. TILL LOLLIPOP EVERYTHING WAS OK. BUT, IN ORDER TO SELL YOUR NOTE 5 DEVICES, UNFORTUNATELY YOU DAMAGED THE NOTE 4 “WITH PURPOSE” WITH THE CRAPY ANDROID MARSHMALLOW. YOU DESTROYED THE USEABILITY OF SD CARD (NOT BY MISTAKE, ON PURPOSE) AND YOU WANT TO SELL SD CARDLESS NOTE 5’S.

Updated my Note 4… 2 days ago.
Battery optimization has became DRAIN battery optimization. Battery percentage drop instantly from 100 to 85%…. 35% to 6%.
No background running apps. Battery are healthy. Anyone ??

Facing the exact same problem. I am getting a screen on time of just about 2 hours on average. (My battery is just 3 months old and genuine Samsung)

I think this is a cheap trick to get Note 4 users like us upgrade to the ridiculously long/tall Note 8.

But get what Samdung… I have bought some other brand this time after being a loyal Note user since Note 2. And I DON’T miss you.
