The entire world is getting updated for the Samsungs S5 to the 5.0 (lollipop) version. There is an official Samsung version of this OS, which you (At&t) should have by now. When can we expect that you roll out this update to our phones?
AT&T doesn't pre-announce these things, so we all get to find out togeather when it actually happens. It often takes a few months (or more if there's a problem) for AT&T to get an OS update tested and rolled out.
the other thing to remember is samsung has to build a different version for US phones. US phones have snapdragon soc's and the rest of the world for the most part has samsung exynos soc's
AT&T needs extra time to load in all their bloatware...
Guess AT&T be last as usual.
yelp and the buhg reports are rolling in. Its android 5.0 so it has bugs
While that's true, I've been using my Nexus 5 on AT&T and havn't really had any issues other than a few FC's here and there. The lollipop update definitely brings more "fixes" such as battery life and performance. Nevermind the beautiful new material design 😛
Nexus 5 vs touchwiz skined phone nexus will win with updates.
The problem with samsung there are always bugs when they update a phone.
Haha, isn't that the truth? I still would prefer to have some sort of news on it, since it's been quite a while. It can't take THAT long to put in your carrier bloat and test it on the proper radios, can it? lol
How can we improve?
