Less than a month after their AT&T counterparts, Samsung Galaxy S4 handsets on Verizon Wireless receive their first firmware update based on Android Lollipop. As it usually happens with such Android 5.0 Lollipop updates, this new firmware promises to bring Android "beyond smartphones and tablets" by offering access to Android apps and services on TVs, wearables, and cars.

This update announced by Verizon Wireless brings the software installed on the carriers' Galaxy S4 handsets to version LRX22C.I545VRUGOC1. The new features include the all-new Material Design UI changes, such as 3D views, complex animations, as well as vivid colored-themes. Samsung's TouchWiz UI was also updated to match the interface changes made by Google. In addition to these visual changes, Android 5.0 Lollipop also comes with various performance enhancements, multiple fixes and slightly improved autonomy.

The first Samsung Galaxy S4 owners to get the Lollipop update were in Russia, India, as well as a few European countries. In the US, AT&T and T-Mobile were the first carriers to offer it. As usual, if this patch does not show up as a notification, it can be retrieved via Settings>About phone>Software updates.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
