Samsung rolling out Android 4.4.2 for the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy S4 in the UK

Galaxy S4 KitKat

Users of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3 in the UK will start receiving the Android 4.4.2 update today. The update will be available as an OTA, so you might not have to wait long to get the notification. However, if you haven’t received the update yet, make sure you check the Settings to pull the update manually.

As with the rest of Samsung’s Android 4.4.2 updates, this one too will bring the usual suite of changes, mostly pertaining to some UI elements. Samsung is keeping its user interface relatively unchanged though, so most of what you will see will be stock Android related improvements, such as the change in the color of the status bar icons, camera shortcut from the lockscreen etc. Users can also expect a bump in performance after the update with their Galaxy S4 or Galaxy Note 3.

Samsung has been one of the first manufacturers to finish the rollout of Android 4.4 to its devices, along with HTC. The likes of Sony and LG are still quite behind as far as updates are concerned, so maybe they could take  a leaf out of Samsung’s book.

  1. My spouse’s Samsung doesn’t seem to like updating. The phone missed two updates and had to be done manually. I can’t seem to get it to do this automatically.

  2. Samsung always delays updates. And there have been issues even with the international version of the Note 3 after the 4.4.2 update. I hope they would have corrected it by now.

  3. Great news! Hopefully we don’t see the same issues with these devices that people are experiencing here in the U.S.
