Samsung Galaxy S4 Update Brings Move To SD, HDR Video Capture

Samsung got some heat for how much free storage is available on the Galaxy S4 out of the box and the company promised to see for ways to increase it. A recent update that hit S4s in Germany is a step in the correct direction.

The update (XXUBMEA) weighs in at 366Mega Bytes (MB) and after installing it you acquire 9.23GB of free storage, up from 9.15GB (on a 16GB model). It's not much, but the update does bring a proper way to free up some space – you can now go apps to the microSD card.

The capturing camera app has been updated with a recent HDR video feature, which was missing from the Galaxy S4 but not its competitors.

There are two classy screen related changes - a smearing issue during scrolling has been resolved and there's a recent Increase legibility feature.

The notification area also got a Smart Pautilize toggle. Other changes include some recent icons, the calendar was tweaked slightly and you can check the Secure boot status from the About page in the settings.

You can check for updates for your Samsung Galaxy S4 from Kies on your computer or from the phone itself (Settings > About). This update is currently rolling out in Germany and is only for the Snapdragon-based Galaxy S4 (I9505). A release for the I9500 Exynos version should follow shortly.
