Sprint Galaxy Note Edge gets Android 5.1 update

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Android phablet on Sprint gets 5.1 Lollipop update
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
The new firmare brings the software version up to N915PVPU4COFE and comes with multiple fixes, tweaks, as well as a few minor interface changes.

While some Samsung Galaxy Note Edge variants barely got their first Android 5.0 Lollipop update, these phablets on Sprint's network take a big step ahead and get their firmware updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Unfortunately, the support page on Sprint.com does not reveal much about the changes that Android 5.1 Lollipop brings to the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge phablets on the network. The update they released yesterday is the third one (not including the initial release), with the first two being based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The new firmware version is N915PVPU4COFE and it comes with "various bug fixes and enhancements" - most likely about the same as offered by the "pure" Android 5.1 Lollipop releases - Quick Settings and System Volume tweaks, Screen Pinning improvements, a few changes to the Contacts app, new animations, as well as multiple bug fixes and minor tweaks.

Since the update comes in stages, it needs several days to reach all Galaxy Note Edge handsets on Sprint. As usual, those anxious to get the new firmware faster can check manually for updates.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
