Samsung rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to international Galaxy S4 Active

A month after rolling out the update for AT&T's version of the Galaxy S4 Active, Samsung has announced that users of the international variant of the device (GT-I9295) will be able to make the switch to Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

The OTA update is now live in Netherlands and should be rolling out to other countries gradually. You can either wait for the OTA or manually check for the update by going to Settings >> General >> About phone » Software updates, or connect your device to Kies and check for an update. The KitKat update (I9295XXUCNE5) brings better performance, improved battery life, changes to the user interface, easier access to music and camera controls and a lot more.

As for AT&T's Galaxy S4 Active, after initially rolling out the update, Samsung put the OTA on hold, stating that it was looking into "potential improvements." There hasn't been any statement from either AT&T or Samsung regarding the status of the update since. Did you make the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat on AT&T's version of the Galaxy S4 Active? If so, did you notice any issues with the device? Let us know in the comments below.
