Samsung S5 lollipop upgrade.

Hi there!

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and I'm still stuck on Android 4.4.2. Any idea on when VM will release the update for us? Every other network seem to have released it already...

Hi Gaminator88,

 

Thanks for your post Smiley Happy

 

Good question!

 

Some of our community members received the Lollipop update on the S5 at the end of last week. How's this looking for you now?

 

Let me know when you can.


Thanks,

Mat

Re: Samsung S5 lollipop upgrade.

Despite being on automatic update, I found when I checked last night that the update is available if I manually checked (which I did)..... I left the download running overnight as it's close to 1GB in size!   Then I updated the phone this morning when I woke.  All appears to have gone OK, although some of the colours on apps/functions are different (eg orange on texts) and the lock screen changed to an odd Samsung pattern.  Anyone know what the actual differences are?

This gives a list of the main UI changes in addition to the version of Android going from 4.4 to 5.0.

Re: Samsung S5 lollipop upgrade.

Upgraded my Galaxy S5 to Lollipop last night, with no problems whatsoever. Disappointingly it's version 5.0. Was hoping for up-to-date version.

Unfortunately, that's down to Samsung. All official S5 Lollipop firmwares are 5.0.
