Samsung Tab 3 Horizontal HLAP

Samsung is the current leading Android Smartphone manufacturer in the world with around and more than 100 models launched in different countries and also specific devices under niche markets. However, more number of devices degrades the software support from the manufacturer. So at the bottom line you would be stuck on an older Android version for a long time.

This is the reason why the Google Play Edition devices become more popular than the other variants of the model. The Nexus and GPE devices are the first devices to get the software updates from Google and the process usually takes few weeks. But the non-GPE devices might take much longer than that.

It’s the same with the Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 which was released last year but had to wait more than 6 months to get the KitKat update NE7. Samsung had also added few improvements to the device along with the KitKat flavor. The recent T217SVPUBNH4 firmware added a Google Security patch and fixed issues with the Netflix app.

So let’s Update Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 LTE to Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the T217SVPUBNH4 firmware which is the latest update from Samsung for the Galaxy Tab 3.
