Default What are the benefits of upgrading firmware / radio

Hi. I have a M7 DE since release and have converted to Google Edition with stock ROM.

I've never updated the firmware or radio. So I assume it's still the original unless updating the ROM changed it. Should I update the firmware? Would there be a substantial benefit? Sorry for noob question but couldn't figure out an answer.

Thanks.

That is up to you. If it is working for you then cool. Just remember that they updated those things for a reason. Some may see an improvment and some will not.

Hmm... okay. Any help even figuring out which firmware I am running?

When I run a fastboot getvar... it's blank.

(bootloader) version-main:

The build number under System Info is: KTU84L
