Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S5 is now receiving a software update

Sprint today started rolling out a software update for its Samsung Galaxy S5 - which it released earlier this month, on April 11 (just like the other major US mobile carriers).

While the software update isn’t a major one and doesn’t change the Android version that the handset is running (4.4.2), we’re assuming that users will be happy after installing it. Here’s the full changelog, as provided by Sprint:

  • Fixed alarm failure when deleting alarm
  • Fixed email duplication (when moving an email from original folder to another folder the email should only be viewable in the moved to folder)
  • Fixed Daydream when using S View Cover (when view cover is closed Daydream should not start)
  • Fixed device responsiveness when using S View Cover
  • When a user does a search using S Finder, Google search results are removed from the list 
  • Enable camera capture during voice call
It seems that some Sprint customers are already enjoying the update on their Galaxy S5 (model number SM-G900P). However, other users might have to wait a few days until they receive it.

Is PhoneArena Samsung's update changelog? Why even bother writing on such a small update?
