Samsung are working very hard to get updates out quickly to their devices, with particular attention paid to their flagships. First up for the Android 5.1.1 update are the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge which will see the update very soon. Samsung focused website SamMobile are well connected in terms of getting information about upcoming devices, builds and other juicy Samsung gossip and they’ve got (an early test build) a 5.1.1 build for the Samsung Galaxy S6.

In the video Chris goes through a few of the new or enhanced features in the new build including:

  • The ability to change the exposure and focal point for your photos which will allow users to be more artistic with their photography
  • Slightly changed ways to organise Apps in your menus
  • The ability to remove quick connect and S Finder from the notification drop down

It looks good, clearly Samsung have been working hard to improve the speed that updates reach their devices which is great news for their users.

If you’re on the edge (see what I did there?) of buying a new phone, will the 5.1.1 Lollipop update entice you to the S6 or S6 Edge?

Disabling S Finder & Quick Connect will be first things I do.

..also S-Voice you don’t need it if you use Google Voice Search – “Ok Google”.

Yeah, S Voice is a “me too” thing I reckon.
