If you’re the owner of a generic Samsung Galaxy S4 bought in Australia (ie. not from Telstra, Optus or Vodafone) you should find yourself receiving an OTA — over the air — update sometime today. The major changes in this update include freeing up some internal storage space — about 90MB — and adding the ability to move apps to your SD card. Both of these were added after backlash from customers finding their 16GB devices only had 9GB of usable storage.

Other fixes included in the ‘stability’ update, which is 369.55MB in size, are:
- Smart Pause Toggle
- HDR Video Recording
- Semi-transparent notification bar
- New icons in settings menu
- Increase in display legibility
- New camera firmware
- Purple ‘effect’ when scrolling should be gone
Implemented direct line of communication to PRISM😉
Be sure to connect to Wi-Fi and have a fair amount of charge in your battery before downloading and installing the update. Once it’s done, let us know what you think!
