    Firmware Update for AT&T Gear S

    I got an update last night to my S that was touted as "stability improvements", daylight saving time bug fix, adding new clocks and themes but I've also found that notifications were improved when you've got more than 1, ability to fully reply, no more canned messages only, to third party communication apps via voice or keyboard and a tremendous improvement to Flow on the keyboard.
    As I find more changes I'll add them in.

    Battery life seems to be about 10% better so far.
    Using an aftermarket text app is really nice because the pop up and other notifications on the Samsung stock one sucks on the phone, especially since I've got my notification bar turned off with Nova.

    After a couple of more days, that 10% improvement has stayed about the same. S Voice has improved quite a bit for both accuracy and speed

    I found out today that Fleksy is now back on the Samsung Gear Store because the firmware update fixed stability issues with it and they allowed it to be there again and it works with all apps just like the Samsung keyboard.
    Fleksy is free for Gear S
