There was a time when we had to rely on a few websites to download the latest Samsung firmware. There’s nothing bad in that until those websites started demanding the users to buy a membership plan to get a faster download speed. Since Samsung firmware are very heavy in size (ranging from 4-5GB) depending on the device models, it sometimes took dozens of failed attempts before one could download the firmware for Samsung Galaxy devices.

Frija vs SamFirm
Frija is far better than SamFirm firmware download tool in many ways. The striking drawback of SamFirm is that it has been depreciated or discontinued. As a result, it won’t be updated any more. On the other hand, Frija is a new tool that keeps receiving updates to make the tool better and more user-friendly which it already is.
Moreover, Frija doesn’t require Microsoft .NET Framework to run as SamFirm does. It has a better user interface or GUI than SamFirm. In SamFirm, we had to make another attempt if the firmware download got interrupted due to network issues. Frija lets you resume interrupted download process and even pause it. The tool does not have any sneaky background processes that steal your personal data.
Are you a night or dark mode lover? Frija got you covered too. It lets you switch between the light and night modes with a single click. Sounds awesome, isn’t it? Frija has more things to brag about itself! It allows you to update itself using the built-in updater. Also, if you get some problem with the tool, you can ask for support from the developer directly right from its interface. Frija is a portable firmware download tool. That means you don’t need to install it on your PC. It’s compatible with both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) architecture of Windows.
