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)
