Samsung Galaxy S4 update rolling out, addresses SD card complaints

Samsung has begun rolling out an update for the Galaxy S4  which has finally resolved an issue which prevented S4 users from installing apps on an SD Card, as well as adding the ability to do HDR Video.

The 16GB version of the Galaxy S4 has landed Samsung in hot water after users discovered only 9.15GB was available, which was made worse when they realised they couldn’t install apps onto an SD Card.

This latest update should help calm some S4  users, and they’ve even added in the extra bonus of 80MB more of free space, which means 9.23GB of available space — hurrah!

On top of that, Samsung has also thrown in a semi-transparent status bar and a way of increasing the legibility of the screen.

If you’re in the UK, US or several other countries, then sadly you will likely have a long wait for this update — as it will most likely need to be pre-approved by the networks.
