AT&T Galaxy S5 gets Android Lollipop update
AT&T released Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 4 phablets on the network back on March 26, and now the Samsung Galaxy S5 finally gets the new firmware as well. Android 5.0 Lollipop updates for the Galaxy S5 began to roll out back in December and companies like Verizon or US Cellular already delivered them, so AT&T users have been waiting for quite a while now.
Back on April 7, ATTCares confirmed on Twitter that the carrier "is actively working on the Android 5.0 Lollipop software update for the Samsung Galaxy S5" without revealing any release date. Soon after that message, Twitter user Dave came up with the following message: "You release 5.01 for the Galaxy S4?! Are you friggin kidding me? Still no S5. Your company is pathetic. Yes I'm upset. :-P" that quickly got an answer saying "The update for the Samsung S5 will be released on 4/8/2015."
The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for AT&T's Galaxy S5 smartphones should be delivered automatically, but those in a hurry can check manually by going to Settings>About device>Software update. The main highlight of the update is Google's new Material Design interface, Smart Lock, Priority Mode notifications, as well as multiple tweaks and fixes.
