A number of US carriers have been pushing out Android Lollipop updates to their branded Samsung Galaxy S5s over the past couple of weeks and T-Mobile has now also begun doing the same.

From today, T-Mobile Galaxy S5 owners can grab the 900MB Android 5.0 Lollipop update OTA or via the Samsung Kies software package. The update contains the tweaked Material Design-esque Touchwiz UI, new notification and lockscreen features, and performance and the battery life improvements that we have seen with previous Galaxy S5 Lollipop updates.

As usual, you can manually check for the update through Settings > About phone > Software updates or by connecting your phone to your PC and using Samsung Kies. Alternatively, you can manually flash the firmware with Odin, if you so desire.

It’s great to see that carrier branded handsets are also receiving Lollipop in good time.
