Samsung Galaxy S4 software update enables moving apps to SD card, HDR video
Awesome is about to get awesomer! There's a new software update about to land on the Samsung Galaxy S4 bringing both minor and major improvements. Among them is the much-requested option to move apps to a microSD card so that users can have more storage space available on the smartphone's internal memory. The purplish smearing issues, which we reported about not long ago, have been addressed as well in the new software, and the overall legibility of the screen has been increased.

It is being reported that this latest Samsung Galaxy S4 software update is available in Germany only, where the Snapdragon 600 variant of the smartphone is on sale, but additional countries are expected to follow suit in the near future. The Exynos model of the Galaxy S4 is to be updated as well. Here's the change log detailing what's new: 

  • New Camera firmware with HDR video
  • Smearing issue has been fixed (Purple effect while scrolling)
  • Smart Pause Toggle
  • Move Apps to SD Card
  • Semi-transparent status bar
  • New Icons in Settings
  • Secure boot status in “About Phone”
  • Increased display legibility
