Sprint Galaxy Note 3 Gets Small Update, Removes “Boost Mode” for Benchmarks

It also fixes an issue with voicemail audio when connected to Galaxy Gear

Since it’s been discovered that Samsung has been tinkering with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset inside the Galaxy Note 3 in order to get higher benchmark results, the South Korean company offered thin explanations denying the shady procedure.

However, it looks like Samsung has really made it so that Galaxy Note 3 could trick any benchmark that users might throw at it. The first software update for Sprint’s version of the phablet confirms it as well.

According to AndroidPolice, Sprint and Samsung are pushing a new software update for Galaxy Note 3, which contains the following changes:


- Voicemail audio restored when connected to Galaxy Gear;

- Restriction to benchmark sites removed.

The update is delivered OTA (over the air) in stages, so not all Samsung Galaxy Note 3 devices might receive it at once. No other details on the current update have been offered by Samsung.
