Software update speeds up Samsung Galaxy S5 camera

6

Samsung has released a software update for the international version of its Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone. The new software is promising speedier camera and gallery app startup, plus more responsive fingerprint recognition. 

Sammobile has already installed the update on one of their devices and found both camera and gallery apps are now opening faster. The latter had been reported to be a little slow prior to installation of the update. They also found the accuracy of the fingerprint scanner to be improved. 

Apart from the faster camera startup, the update is said to bring improved general performance and better RAM management. It's currently available in the UK, and as usual, will be gradually rolled out to other regions. It's available through Samsung's Kies software but advanced users can also download it and install manually.

Samsung need to optimize all the code (for phone and tablet) so it can be faster and smoother.
Many people complain the UI make slow.
Also Samsung need to update the OS to kit kat for galaxy tab 3 family, S4 and other

My Samsung S4 on ATT was updated to kitkat a long time ago. I preferred the previous release.

Well I liked the new KitKat on my S4. It was faster and could handle more open apps with the KitKat update. My new Sony Xperia runs smoother but the samsung s4 was more completed software wise.
