Firmware update


Userlevel 5
My S4 just notified me of an update. I have heard mixed reviews of it crashing (bricking) phones, or killing battery life etc. \Anyone have any experience with this update?

It should be okay if you do it properly... I haven't heard of anything very bad about updating

Update the phone on a full battery while it's plugged in and go through the entire process don't touch anything until the install is complete.

Paul is right. My phone's battery level was at least 50% before I could install the 4.4 update.
