Galaxy S5

Almost exactly a month after its launch, the European Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) has received its first post-release firmware update. The update to firmware version NE2 (from the older NCE build) landed on our unlocked UK GS5 this morning, and seems to be pushing out over the air and through Samsung's Kies desktop app.

If you get an error message telling you to the software update "is provided to users in the order in which they request it," you'll need to grab it via Kies, or wait until capacity for OTA (over-the-air) updates frees up.

Prime Day may have ended, but these 25 deals are still available now!

It's unclear what's new in this firmware update, and we haven't noticed any obvious differences after updating our device, so it's likely a maintenance release consisting of the usual bug fixes and performance tweaks. The new firmware was built just a few days ago on May 8, and also comes with an update baseband, as non-minor updates tend to.

If you're updating your Galaxy S5 to the new firmware today, hit the comments and let us know if you notice anything new.
