Sprint released the Samsung Galaxy S5 on April 11, just like all other major U.S. carriers. Today it has released the first even software update for its variant of Samsung’s 2014 flagship. Its certainly not a major update in any aspect, it doesn’t bring new features or updates core Android OS beyond version 4.4.2 KitKat. However a plethora of bugs have been fixed, so users should definitely get their hands on this update which it goes live in their region.

Some of the issues that Sprint says it has fixed include alarm failure when deleting alarm, device responsiveness when S View Cover is being used, email duplication which created two copies of a single email when it was moved across folders and it has also fixed Daydream when using S View Cover, it shouldn’t start when the cover is closed.

The update will allow users to enable camera capture when they’re on a voice call, and now when they search using S Finder, Google search results will be removed from the list.

Some Sprint Galaxy S5 owners already report that they have received the update. Others might have to wait a while. Even though it is an incremental update, its possibly going to take some time before it goes live across all regions. Once it does go live, it will automatically pop up on all Sprint Galaxy S5 units.
