Samsung Galaxy S4 Sprint update has short changelog


Many people are currently waiting for Android 4.3 and Android 4.4 update to arrive for their devices but we mustn’t forget the more minor updates that often crop up. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Sprint model is currently receiving an update although it has a short changelog.

The MK2 update is definitely a minor update for the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 as it just appears to contain a fix for sleep mode issues. On the face of it this isn’t anything to get excited about, although it could be more relevant than initially expected.

The Android 4.3 update recently arrived for the Galaxy S4 on Sprint and some owners have faced problems and have reported poor battery life since. We’ve been detailing Galaxy S3 and S4 Android 4.3 problems for some time and although battery life is just one complaint it’s one of the aspects most often mentioned.

The MK2 update was made available in the last few days so you might have already received notification. If you haven’t yet received the update you can manually check for it by heading to Settings followed by About Phone followed by Software Updates.

If you have the Samsung Galaxy S4 we’d like to know if you faced any problems after the Android 4.3 update that arrived several weeks ago? Have you received the new MK2 update yet, and if so have you noticed any changes or improvements? Let us know with your comments.

    On 12/02/13 I received the 4.3 update notification for sprint galaxy S4. I started the update but in the end it gave me an error message. I went back to settings to manually update my phone but it told me I was up to date on my software. My phone still shows I have 4.2.2. I bought samsung Gear smart watch but still can’t use it.

    I received the update a couple of weeks ago and there aren’t enough words to express my utter disappointment with the continuing problems I’m experiencing with what had been a great phone (S4) and superb member experience. Now the phone will not remain on WiFi. It constantly tells me I have no connection. While standing in the same spot, the phone will use WiFi, then 3G, then 4G. Or no connection at all. When I try to reconnect, I have to enter my password for WiFi – and it lasts for only a couple of minutes. Even when connected in either of these three ways, it’s difficult for internet content to load.
    I get a black screen periodically. The screen is not stable and the content on the screen will “shake. I get kicked out of games while playing. I’m dropping calls like never before. The battery drains faster. There are other problems as well. Honestly, I’m not sure I’d buy another Samsung phone if this is the best they have to offer. And then there’s silence about possible fixes. The consumer experience for many of us is dismal at best.
