Using more precise majorizing sequences than before [1], [8], and under the same computational cost, we provide a finer semilocal convergence analysis of Newton's method in Riemannian manifolds with the following advantages: larger convergence domain, finer error bounds on the distances involved, and a more precise information on the location of the singularity of the vector field.
