First software update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 improves its battery life even further
Back in April, Samsung pushed out a last-minute hotfix firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy S5, which killed a few bugs ahead of the latter's global launch. Well, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 won't hit the shelves with a similar global launch, as this time Samsung is aiming towards a staged release. The device is already being sold in certain regions, but one thing's similar, though - both the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 have received a firmware update right before they arrived on the more major markets across the globe.

That's right, Samsung is already rolling out a firmware update for its latest powerhouse of a phablet. Rolling under the XXU1ANJ4 firmware name, the update is flaunting a bevy of performance and stability improvements to the Galaxy Note 4. However, the most important refinement is the further-enhanced battery life of the phablet. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 already found its rather high-ranking spot in our battery life hall of fame, topping each and every device with Quad HD display on board in terms of battery endurance.

Then again, nobody usually complains when a smartphone receives the ability to operate longer after a full charge. It's not known by what extent Samsung has improved the overall battery life of the Note 4, but even a slight spike in this department will be surely regarded highly.

The update will be available right out of the box for those who are looking forward to the launch of the Note 4 in the following days and weeks. After you lay your hands on your new phablet, you should head to Settings > About phone > Software update and check for the battery-improving firmware goodness, it should be right there, patiently waiting for you.
