Samsung Galaxy Note 4 battery life given pre-release boost

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 battery life is being boosted ahead of the phone’s official UK release later this week.

With the 5.7-inch stylus-loving device set to hit British shores this Friday, October 17, Samsung has confirmed a firmware update for the device is already available to further enhance the phone’s staying power.

Although the full scale of these battery-boosting benefits is currently unclear, any enhancement to the QHD phone’s longevity on a single charge is a welcome one.

The Note 4 is powered by a 3220mAh Lithium-Ion battery. From our early use, we have been impressed with the Note 4’s battery life, easily passing the troubling one day hump.

With the handset currently on sale in the company’s native Korea, the Note 4 firmware update also brings a range of bug fixes and stability improvements to the iPhone 6 Plus rival.

The firmware patch is circling under the moniker XXU1ANJ4 – catchy, we know. For those looking to snap up the Note 4 when it hits the UK, the update will be available as a free download.

A direct replacement to the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung’s latest phablet offering pairs its trademark S-Pen stylus with a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD display and a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor.

A 16-megapixel, optical image stabilised camera lines up on the phones rear while a Galaxy Alpha echoing metal frame has been bestowed on the device.

Got mine on Friday and had nothing but problems.. I can use it with the
charger connected and the battery says 100% but as soon as I remove the
power the thing just goes blank.. I've been waiting since Friday for EE
to resolve it but they just keep blowing me off... "We'll call you back"
and they never do, "We'll replace the phone, but we're out of stock,
we'll call you back.." The best one was yesterday, "We'll credit you the
value of a replacement battery and you can buy one from Amazon!"
Unbelievable.. And guess what, I'm waiting for them to call me back..
Anyone else had problems with the battery or is it just me??
