Samsung’s 2014 flagship, the Galaxy S5 is finally receiving the Lollipop update across the entire carrier branded range, with Optus, Vodafone and Telstra customers all reporting OTA updates being pushed to the handsets.
The Android 5.0.2 update which is being received was confirmed by Telstra late last month, but we’ve been receiving reports from Optus and Vodafone users today which confirms it’s all carrier branded handsets. If you have a Galaxy S5 and want to check for a software update, simply go to Settings > About Phone > System updates > Check for Updates.
The Galaxy S5 Lollipop update brings Material Design goodness, with improved notifications, as well as better security which includes Smart Lock and device encryption.
Samsung hasn’t advised if the unbranded Galaxy S5 is also receiving the update, but we’ve asked for an update on this.
