Samsung Galaxy S5 software update brings camera improvements

Samsung Galaxy S5 software update brings camera improvementsSammo’s latest flagship has been on shelves for just over a month, but already we’re seeing the first Samsung Galaxy S5 software update.

Affectionately known as G900FXXU1ANE2, you can grab the Samsung Galaxy S5 software update right now via the magic of Kies (Jan’s favourite) and supposedly over the air (OTA) also.

Admittedly we don’t have a Samsung Galaxy S5 lying around to try it out on, but we’re assured by SamMobile that the update is rolling out internationally – “starting in the UK”. Wait a minute; that’s us!

I’m not seeing any G900FOXA1ANE2 release notes, but SamMobile reckons that both the camera and photo gallery open significantly quicker than before – something the Samsung Galaxy S5 took flack for in reviews.

They also reckon the fingerprint scanner is more accurate – even with one hand, while there seems to be better RAM management and an overall performance improvement.

Of course, technically we’re still talking about KitKat Android 4.4.2; the Samsung Galaxy S5 was already rocking the latest version of the world’s most popular smartphone operating system.

Anyone out there using a Samsung Galaxy S5? Let us know how you get on with the software update.
