Android 5.0 Lollipop now rolling out to the Verizon Galaxy Note 4
As is the case with most other Samsung devices, Android 5.0 Lollipop will bring a slew of awesome aesthetic enhancements and some under-the-hood changes. For starters, the UI will be updated to fit in with Google’s Material Design guidelines including some brighter colors and more fluid animations. Unfortunately the majority of the visual changes you’ll see won’t be as prominent as on a device running a vanilla build of Android, but they will definitely add a few nice touches to the UI. The Note 4 will also receive the Smart Lock security feature, priority notifications, notification interaction on the lock screen and much more.
Verizon is also bringing Advanced Calling 1.0 to the Note 4, which is essentially VoLTE, or Voice Over LTE. Advanced Calling 1.0 allows for the ability to make HD voice calls, 2-way video calls and 6-way conference calls. You can now toy with all of these changes by heading to the Advanced Calling menu in your phone’s Settings.
There are a few other nice additions that Lollipop will bring, so if you own a Note 4, take a look at the PDF that’s linked below. If you’d like to check for the update manually, head to Settings>About phone>Software updates>Check for updates. Since the update is just beginning to roll out today, it might take a few days for your device to get the OTA.
