Samsung Droid Charge Media Hub Update, Disables Downloads Over 3G
The Samsung Droid Charge is barely out of the box and already it is getting a software update. However, for all those new owners please note that it is simply a tweak to the Media Hub application to disable downloads over 3G.
Therefore, what this means is that in order to download multimedia for those owners of the Samsung Droid Charge not within a 4G area, they will need find a WiFi hotspot to undertake their downloads. The reason the 3G downloads were stopped was to “ensure quality and speed,” claim Verizon — see PDF below.
As indicated in the article by Android Central, coming to us via Engadget, it can never be a good thing when a software update actually removes a function, as in this case. For those that wish to continue using the Media Hub over 3G, you may want to give this software update a miss.
Prior to the release of the Samsung Droid Charge on the May 14, there were indication that the handset was ‘Buggy and Slow’ and had a few issues — slow display wake, buggy and sluggish UI overlay, 3G connection issues… and more.
Please give us your comments on this software update – will you be downloading it? Also please give us your overall views on the handset — do you find it buggy and slow?
