    Hi Guys

    There has been an update and I wondered if anyone had noticed any significant performance improvements? that was all the specification cited as the point of the upgrade

    Seems it's supposed to improve camera opening times, Fingerprint scanner accuracy and speed, and gallery opening times. What do you think?

    I received the update ota the other day (uk) and I can confirm the fingerprint scanner is improved as is the camera and gallery. Overall I found the phone to be slightly faster now.

    AFIK, and it was so about 3 days ago, the UK is the only place where the update is available. As that is true, maybe Canada can also get it?

    Therefore, the audience is slim on the users who have the update.

    I did the 30.8mb OTA update on my s5 G900F
    u can't do an OTA updata on the s5 itself using 3g data
    cos Samsung have set a stupid low OTA 3g MB limit around 20mb

    so I used a wifi hotspot from my s3 which enabled me to do an OTA update on the s5 itself

    can't remember what phone was running like before update so not sure about improvements

    so I tested it against my s3
    camera opens slightly quicker than s3 so does pic gallery its faster at browsing web pages
    and it hammers s3 in bench tests

    fingerprint scanner works fine
    was able to input multiple prints in device
    every print unlocked phone
    then I deleted all prints from device ok but its not something I'd use
