Verizon rolled out an update for its version of the Galaxy Note 3 today, patching a number of bugs while also adding a handful of new preloaded bloatware apps. The software upgrade is currently being pushed out, with some users already receiving it.
So what does Verizon have in store for your Galaxy Note 3? First the good stuff. Issues with handwriting data entry for emails and text messages should be fixed, along with email sync and connected issues. Verizon also says Samsung’s keyboard app should stop crashing, hotspot reliability should improve, and the notification panel should be more responsive. Overall connectivity and sound quality also get a tune-up.
Verizon also took the opportunity to bombard your phone with some new bloatware. Once you’ve gone through the update, your phablet will be pre-loaded with a new MyInfoZone widget, VMware, a new version of the carriers Support and Protection software, and the company’s own cloud service.
