Verizon Galaxy S5 receiving the Android 4.4.4 update

Samsung Galaxy S5

Verizon has started sending out the Android 4.4.4 update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone, bringing forth a couple of changes and fixes. Most importantly, the update finally fixes the persistent Bluetooth audio loss bug which had issues while streaming music. The camera has also received a bit of tweaking with this update, with improved flash coloring and consistent exposure. You can find the complete changelog below:

  • This release includes accuracy improvements to the power profile, several stability, framework and security fixes including update to OpenSSL.
  • Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions.
  • Fix for Bluetooth loss of audio.

Android 4.4.4 is the last version of KitKat before the commercial release of Android L, so it’s understandable as to why the manufacturers are rallying to get the update on their respective handsets. However, stock Android 4.4.4 only contains an OpenSSL related fix and nothing beyond that, so customers will not see any drastic changes here.

Although Verizon has already begun the rollout of the update, it could take a while to hit all units of the Galaxy S5 at once, so maintain patience if you don’t see it on your device yet.
