samsung galaxy note edge review aa (23 of 26)

It seems like every other day we are bringing you news of a Samsung device getting an update to Lollipop. Today Sprint is bringing us two more, as the Galaxy Note 3 and Note Edge are both now receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The official changelog for Sprint’s Note 3 update only mentions one thing, “Android 5.0”. In addition to Lollipop, the Note Edge is also getting factory reset protection and Wi-Fi calling. In other words, we can pretty much expect these updates to be about the same as we’ve seen from other Samsung devices. That means Material Design elements will be less noticeable here than they would be on a stock Android device due to TouchWiz, but you can expect brighter colors, an updated multitasking interface, a new lock screen, and the priority system from Lollipop.

The update is hitting devices starting today, and comes in at just under 1GB, meaning you’ll probably want to download using Wi-Fi unless you have an unlimited data plan through the Now Network. It’s also worth noting that this will be a staged rollout, as you’d expect, and so don’t be surprised if it takes hours, days, or even longer before it reaches your device.
