samsung-galaxy-s4-android-4.4It seems only fitting to approach Valentine’s Day by caring for your sweet tooth, but it’s even better to be able to feast on a chocolaty treat without worrying you’ll put on weight. And that’s where Sprint comes in, rolling out the highly anticipated Android 4.4 update for Samsung’s Galaxy S4 at the most ideal time.

Just don’t be mad if 4.4 KitKat won’t be your Valentine yet. True, the OTA upgrading process has begun, but it can take weeks for it to reach all users. Days, at best. So patience, and try to remember the vast majority of Android users can’t even dream of such a timely software bump.

Now, now, don’t you go rub it in anyone’s face either. Need something to do to keep your mind off things? Maybe a system reboot will help, or a manual check by tapping Menu – Settings – More – System Update – Update Samsung Software – Check Now.

Before proceeding to the actual upgrade, don’t forget to back up your data (just in case), and more importantly, hitch on to a Wi-Fi connection. Expect a slightly revamped user interface once it’s done, less bugs (as if there were ever any on Sprint’s Galaxy S4), overall improved performance, battery life, as well as added Zact Mobile compatibility.

Alright, so this makes two GS4 versions boarded on the Android 4.4 KitKat bandwagon. AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, your move.
