Samsung's 2014 flagship handsets connected to US Cellular finally gets the Lollipop update, more than a month after other US carriers.

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.
