So, I've recently joined the Android world, having bought my wife and I for Christmas the mid-level Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 model phone (first smartphone for her, and mine was so I could learn and explain it all to her! :-) ).
I've installed the Kies software, and when connecting the phone it's telling me that a new firmware is available, and that 'upgrading may improve the performance'. It then displays the following info:
Current firmware version : PDA:LE3 / PHONE:LE3 / CSC:LE3 (TNZ)
Latest firmware version : PDA:LK1 / PHONE:LK1 / CSC:LK1 (TNZ)
Can anyone tell me where I can find out what the changes might be in the new firmware (yes, I've done a Google!), as I'd be keen to understand more about what's new before installing it.
I've got a work-provided iPhone 4, which I've had for the last couple of years, and whenever there's an iOS update, major or minor, there's always details of what the changes are, so thought Android might do something similar.
Or is that not how it works on the Android OS, and do people just update firmware's without any hesitation? In fact, I've just thought, since this refers to a firmware update, will that even change anything on the OS, or is it applied at a hardware level before the OS even kicks in (e.g. thinking similar to a PC BIOS firmware update vs Windows OS update)?
I'd be interested to hear what others do when they get notifications of firmware updates.
