It is Samsung tradition as they rollig out this update extremely slow. Right now it has spread to just in selected regions including UK.

In USA we have a wide list of Samsung Galaxy S5 users on Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T and so on, waiting for Lollipop update in silence. This silence from Samsung is killing some Galaxy S5 users here in USA, especially those users who are dealing with Android 4.4 KitKat problems.

These are the prediction to set some basic expectations for Galaxy S5 users in United States.


It`s been observed that all these type of big roll outs come without warning. So you should not expect anyone to announce a date. You can expect a majority of updates to be announced on same day when they will start rolling out in USA.

his is the usual behavior of U.S. carriers, as they rarely give any Galaxy Android update details. Samsung galaxy is still working on to take lead from HTC. So, stay patient and believe that updates are on their way.

U.S. Galaxy S5 Lollipop Update Soon

We believe that Samsung is still testing it`s update before rolling out in USA and as extra testing takes time, so you have to wait for it. Well that`s our theory.

If you are thinking that probably this update won`t come in USA then you should think again. It`s samsung tradition that there is months of gap between their update rolling out in each country.

Android 5.0.1 or Android 5.0.2

You should expect both updates, Android 5.0.1 or Android 5.0.2. Samsung can release that after fixing their bugs. The only one way where we don`t see any fixes from Samsung is, if they provide Android 5.0 Lollipop update with all fixes.

Staggered Release Dates

It’s hard to predict the exact release days It is well known that updates usually start on weekdays. So the day and time is random and unpredictable. It can be morning or evening. Believe me this is not Apple, this is Samsung. U.S. carriers usually don’t release software updates on the same day. It is very rare that multiple roll outs start on same day.

Sprint Near the Front

Sprint has a track record so it’s is expected that It gets the very first Galaxy S5 Lollipop update in USA. Sprint’s Galaxy S5 Lollipop is the only update to have been confirmed. But still hard to say that who will be on last place of this list.

Overall U.S. Galaxy S5 Lollipop roll out, to be staggered. We can expect that carriers don`t run the updates all together on the same day.

New Features + Enhancements

Android 5.0 Lollipop update is one of the biggest update that you can expect with ton of new features including parts of Google’s new Material Design. This is a large update so we would expect full of carrier-specific changes.
