    There's good news for you if you have been waiting for the Galaxy Note FE Android Pie update. Samsung has started rolling out Android 9.0 for this handset. The company released this device quite a while after the Galaxy Note 7 debacle which seriously dented the reputation of this stellar series.

    The Galaxy Note FE or Fan Edition was meant for Samsung fans who really loved the Galaxy Note 7 but couldn't hold on to it due to the mandatory recall. It was genuinely a good phone, the Galaxy Note 7, and would have done well had it not been for the battery problems.

    Galaxy Note FE Android Pie update

    Samsung first released the Galaxy Note FE in South Korea on July 7, 2017. The company utilized leftover parts from the Galaxy Note 7 and unopened units of the original device to put together the Galaxy Note FE. The original battery was swapped out for a smaller and safe 3,200mAh battery.

    To ensure customers that it won't have the same issues as the original device, Samsung put the Galaxy Note FE's battery through its new 8-point battery safety test. It later released the device in select markets across the globe.

    The Galaxy Note FE Android Pie update is now rolling out, it's firmware version N935FXXU4CSC4. We have received reports of the roll out from Saudi Arabia. It's only a matter of time before the update goes live elsewhere as well. This release brings all of the Android Pie features for the handset in addition to Samsung's One UI. The latest March 2019 security patch is included as well.

    Excited to finally get Android Pie on your Galaxy Note FE? You can manually check for the update from the Software update section of the Settings app, by tapping on Download updates manually.

    Got a new Galaxy S24 case and screen protector? Don’t forget these One UI settings

    Imagine this: You just bought a new Galaxy S24, and to keep it safe from damage and screen scratches, you wrapped it up in a case and put a screen protector on it. Fantastic! Save for the fact that, now, haptic feedback barely feels like it's there, and the touchscreen isn't very responsive. If this […]

    Galaxy S24 display too bright at night? Try these tricks

    Samsung's new Dynamic AMOLED 2X screens for the Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra are fantastic in our experience, providing superior image quality, colors, contrast, and brightness levels in all lighting conditions. On the other hand, some users might feel like the Galaxy S24's screens are a little bit too bright, particularly in dark environments. […]

    Samsung’s Modes and Routines is sorely lacking device ecosystem features

    I've been a fan of Samsung's Modes and Routines tool for years, but the feeling that it could use a few more options never went away. In fact, as my Samsung device ecosystem expanded, that feeling became more prominent. Granted, you can create plenty of fun and useful automations when you pair a Samsung smart […]

    Samsung better not remove Notification Categories in One UI!

    The Notification Categories feature is among the most useful and well-integrated One UI elements. I'd go as far as to say it's probably underrated, but that doesn't really bother me as long as the feature exists and remains a part of One UI. To be frank, the thought that Samsung might be preparing to remove […]
