Codrut Nistor,

Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphones in the US started to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update back in February, but even now in early April there are still carriers that did not make the new firmware available yet. One of these carriers was US Cellular, but they finally unveiled Android 5.0.1 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S5 handsets on their network earlier today.

US Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S5 received the update to firmware version G900R4VXU1BOC1. This upgrade can be done directly by following the traditional Settings>About Device>Software Update path, or with the help of Samsung Kies software and a USB cable.

Once their handsets have been updated to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, US Cellular's Galaxy S5 owners can enjoy multi-user and multi-device support, enhanced performance, custom notifications, as well as all the other benefits offered by the new Material Design interfaces.

The list of US Cellular devices still stuck with Android 4.4 KitKat that should get Lollipop soon includes Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4, and even the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet.

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.
