I actually emailed at&T help because my home button is so bad with pulling up Google now and they are trying to tell me it could be my home button. I have pretty good technical knowledge and I'm done arguing with them. They just don't listen. I should just get a new phone. I told them tons of other users are having this issue. I'm fine with waiting for lollipop but my phone is acting so crazy ever since 4.4.4 that's why im tired of waiting

Hi Charise.

Thanks for reaching out to me. However the link you sent me goes to an update we received back in August, 2014 for 4.4.2. The most recent update was Feb 9 (I believe) with version 4.4.4. So I'll take the update site with a grain of salt.

Yours truly,
B Warloe.

Yeah that was the same link someone sent a couple replies back. Too bad At&t doesn't seem to be taking the same diligence with this upgrade like they did with the regular gs5. If you want an up to date update page for this phone you can go here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/faq/FAQ00061471/90115/

That's from the samsung site.

Finally! My ATT S5 Active is now updated to Android 5.0!

 

P.S.  Had to manually reboot it one more time for some Google Play Service update that wouldn't update. Google Play Service works now.

Running lollipop at last! Feels smoother than 4.4.4 and until now, no issues that I can see. Let's see how long till the next outdated update.

So far, running nice! It'll take a little getting used to with the new visuals, but nice. Feels like a new phone. I agree, very smooth, very little hesitation, if any. 

 

I think I'm good with 5.0. I won't complain about future updates - all just a bonus now.

I agree it seems to run quite well. The increase in benchmark scores is definitively a nice surprise as well.

Hello fellow s5 active friends.... got the lollipop pushed to my phone last night, i HATE the notifications on the lock screen! Horrible. I checked both the lock screen options and the notification options and there's no way to shut it off. It also now blocks my "owner information" message I had on the lockscreen (said in emergency call ______). Hate it. If anyone finds ways to work around lollipop I'll be thrilled. Crappy update.

Go to Settings, Sounds and notifications, scroll down near the bottom for Never on lock screen, or words to that effect. Took me forever to find that!

This is crazy....I am still at 4.4.2 and there are no updates available.     And I cannot get again for another 23 hours.

My update was pushed overnight and I detest the change in menu colors and whatnot (I am a big fan of black backgrounds/white text and not a big fan of bright colors). I've spent most of the day seaching for a way to change back to this (without rooting or reverting to KitKat) with no luck- I've tried installing a few Launchers and they didn't do what I wanted so I uninstalled them. Ugh. =(
