Android 4.3 Update Now Available for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

Galaxy S4 Active owners can now celebrate, as their devices have received the head nod from AT&T to begin updating to Android 4.3. It’s taken a while, but updates are always better late than never. Am I right, HTC One X and One X+ owners? Then again, don’t feel too bad, since the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 are still waiting to hear about Android 4.4. Ah, fragmentation, it’s a beautiful thing. Anyways, back to the topic at hand. 

With the new update, S4 Active owners can now hook up their Galaxy Gear devices right to the phone, as well as have access to the new AT&T Digital Experience – also known as extreme amounts of bloatware including the Kindle app, Lookout, City ID, Password Keeper, Games, and AT&T Mobile Protection. Pretty nice of AT&T to throw all of that value into the update. (/sarcasm)

To check to see if your device is ready to update, head to Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates

    looks like Samsung is staying “Active” with this Galaxy..
    here is how to update Galaxy S4 Active to Android 4.3 any news on the international unlocked version?

    • Max Struever

      my int’l unlocked version just showed an update was ready. it didn’t specifically say android 4.3 but simply “compatibility with galaxy gear, and improved user interface” so maybe they think we users can’t handle the truth

    What a shame that this is probably the last or second to the last update this device will see. I feel sorry for the 3 people that bought it.

      hey it’s a pretty awesome phone. almost all of the awesomeness of the S4, just a bit more accident-proof
