Android 5.0 Lollipop for AT&T Galaxy S5 now ready

Just the other day, AT&T released Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Soon after, it's the Galaxy S5's turn to receive the same update. This is specifically for the Galaxy S5 (SM-G900A) which is now available for download via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) over WiFi. This one is anticipated since other S5's from different carriers in different countries have already experienced the Android Lollipop goodness.

Rogers stops Android Lollipop rollout for Samsung Galaxy S5

The sweet Android 5.0 Lollipop was released for the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Canada through different carriers but sadly, they had to cancel the rollout due to some bugs and issues that need to be fixed first. That's a bit frustrating but that's better than no update to Android 5.0 at all. At least these Canadians know Android Lollipop will be available in the country soon. Minor issues include force closures, screen freezes, and excessive battery drain.

Samsung Galaxy S6 has the best OLED display on a smartphone

When it comes to OLED displays, no one will probably come close to the efforts of Samsung to develop its Super AMOLED technology. The Korean gadget giants produce two generations of their top OLED displays per year, and they are highlighted in the company’s flagship devices. This was the case with the Galaxy Note 4 – touted as the device with the most realistic display when it came out – and is the same with the new Galaxy S6, having the latest generation of Samsung OLED technology.

Android 5.0 Lollipop ready for T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 getting the sweet Android Lollipop update is old news. Even if Google has released the software and phone manufacturers have tested the version, it's really up to the network carrier when such will roll out to subscribers and owners. Last year's Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphone has started to receive Lollipop as early as October. It was known as the Android L then. The Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition was also rumored to arrived with Android 5.0.

Activate native call recording function in Samsung devices

It might be unethical (specifically when the person you're talking to doesn't know you're doing it) and maybe borderline illegal, but there are times when you just want to record the conversation you're having over the phone. While the old school feature phones do have this supposedly basic feature, OEMs have hidden the native call recording feature (probably to avoid problems with government) on the more widely distributed smartphones. But there is still a way to enable that feature because there's an app for that of course.

Android 4.4.4 update for Galaxy S5 released by AT&T

Yesterday, we said Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S5 is finally getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop. Today, we've got information that the AT&T variant of the same smartphone is getting an update. That's good news but unfortunately, it's only Android 4.4.4. No Android Lollipop yet but at least the Android 4.4.4 KitKat for the Galaxy S5 brings VoLTE (Voice over LTE) to the device. It's about time AT&T Galaxy S5 owners get the kind of service too.

Verizon brings Android 5.0 Lollipop to Samsung Galaxy S5

The different variants of Samsung Galaxy S5 has been receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop updates albeit slowly. Those in the UK recently got their software update last month. We saw a video before 2014 ended that showed off the Lollipop sweetness in action on the Galaxy Note 4, Note Edge, and the Galaxy S5. In the US, Verizon Wireless subscribers are lucky to receive an update to the Android 5.0 Lollipop this week.

Lollipop continues: Galaxy Note 4 preview, Galaxy S5 firmware

Samsung fans are surely excited and well teased beyond their limits thanks to SamMobile's unending exclusives on how Android 5.0 will look and behave on the Korean OEM's 2013 and 2014 flagships. After the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 3, and the Galaxy S 4 (also in its GPE incarnation), we now turn our eyes to the latest and, some say, the greatest, the Galaxy Note 4. Fans of Google's new Material Design language will probably feel right at home, though much work is to be done, if it's to be done at all.
