AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 5.0 Lollipop update finally rolling out
Good news for Samsung Galaxy S4 owners on AT&T, as the long-awaited Android 5.0 Lollipop update is finally rolling out now.
The new-generation Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been drawing most of the attention recently, but the older Galaxy S4 is not forgotten either. Various versions of the handset have already received the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop a while ago, but AT&T dragged its feet and delayed the rollout until now.
Nevertheless, the carrier has officially announced that it has started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to its Samsung Galaxy S4, and the update should arrive momentarily if it has not become available already.
"AT&T released a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 (SGH-i337) on April 7, 2015. The update is available to customers to download via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA). Wi-Fi is required for the update. The file size is 947MB," the carrier announced.
Considering the fact that the update weighs nearly 1GB, it's highly recommended to make sure you have enough storage before proceeding with the installation. As AT&T itself notes, download the update over a reliable Wi-Fi network. As always, make sure that your phone has enough battery life for the whole process to go smoothly, without interruptions.
Android 5.0 Lollipop will bring a slew of neat changes and improvements to the table, so here are the highlights:
- Enjoy songs, photos, apps, or recent searches from one Android device across all of your Android devices
- A new look and feel for the User Interface (UI), as well as more fluid motions
- Priority mode, enabling users to limit which notifications they receive
- Battery optimization features, indicators for remaining time left to charge or deplete
- Smart Lock to secure the device by pairing it with a trusted device such as a wearable gadget or a car
- Most frequently used settings now available with just two swipes from the top screen
- Code Scanner, Browser Bar and Softcard apps removed
The update will bring the Samsung Galaxy S4 from Android 4.4.4 KitKat to Android 5.0 Lollipop. If you have already received the update on AT&T, drop by our comment section below and tell us how it fares. If not, rest assured that it should become available shortly.
