This month's security update for this Android phablet also comes with performance improvements and better battery life.

Samsung has been paying a lot of attention to the Galaxy Note 4 phablet by delivering the security updates as fast as possible, sometimes being the first device in its portfolio to get the new firmware. Now, the time has come for the latest security patches, but the Galaxy Note 4 also gets a few noticeable improvements as well.

The new firmware currently rolls out to the European Galaxy Note 4, model number SM-N910F. The build number of the update is N910FXXS1DPE6 and has a size of almost 370 MB. The update notes reveal the following changes:

  • security enhancements
  • battery usage optimization
  • improved memory management

Obviously, next to the changes above, Galaxy Note 4 users will also get a lot of minor tweaks, fixes, and improvements on top of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which has been available for their device for a while now. 

The update rolls out via OTA, so those who did not get the notification yet can perform a manual check as usual - Settings > About device > Software update.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
