The Galaxy S4 is Samsung's number 1 flagship and currently heads towards the record of 80 million sales by the end of 2013. However the fact that the customers have to pay such a high amount of money for a product is making them really sensible to any issues the device might have, and the S4 was no exception. In order to please their customers and fix most of the bugs reported by the users, Samsung has started pushing an update to the GT-I9505 version of the device. The firmware is available for German users only for now, but it will soon come for other countries and also for the GT-I9500 version also. Among the new features introduced by the update, we can say that fixing the smearing issue is one of the most important. The update also introduces a new camera, HDR video recording, Smart Pause Toggle, possibility to move apps to the sd card, new Settings icons and others. Samsung also addressed the issue with the storage space increasing the user memory to 9.23 GB. If you live in Germany you should be able to download the 365.67 MP update through Kies or OTA.
