Although there have been two new iterations in the Galaxy S lineup since its launch, the Galaxy S4 is still a great device. For those who are on AT&T’s network and still own this device, you should be getting a nice update sometime in the near future. AT&T has just begun pushing out Android 5.0.1 Lollipop to the Samsung Galaxy S4. The update, which is 947MB in size, carries build number LRX22C.1337UCUGOC3.
Multiple other Samsung devices have already gotten the Lollipop update including the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3 and 4, and some variants of the Galaxy Note Edge. The most notable changes you’ll see with Lollipop are some improvements in the UI with Google’s new Material Design guidelines, Priority Mode notifications, Smart Lock security features and much more.
According to the AT&T update page, this is what you’ll get with the new update:
- Songs, photos, apps, and even recent searches from one Android device can be immediately enjoyed across all of your Android devices.
- New User Interface look and feel, more fluid motions
- Priority mode to only allow certain notifications to get through
- Battery saving features and remaining time left to charge or deplete indicators
- Smart Lock to secure phone or tablet by pairing it with a trusted device like a wearable or car
- Most frequently used settings available with just two swipes down from the top screen
- Removal of Code Scanner, Browser Bar and Softcard apps
Since the update is so large in size, AT&T requires that you download it over Wi-Fi. If you have yet to receive the OTA, you may have to wait a day or two before it comes to your device.
S4 owners, how are you liking the new update?
