AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 Active getting Android 5.0 Lollipop now
AT&T is officially upgrading its Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (SGH-I537), as Android 5.0 Lollipop is rolling out now for the device.
The last major version of Android still has quite a long way to go to reach more devices, but its journey nonetheless continues. Android 5.0 Lollipop is gradually reaching an increasing number of handsets, and carriers are continuing their rollout.
AT&T, for its part, has already rolled out Android 5.0 Lollipop to a number of devices in its lineup, and the older Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is now getting the treat as well. The carrier announced that the rollout has kicked off on Tuesday, April 21, and will gradually make its way to all units soon.
The update is rolling out over the air (OTA) and is quite hefty, and it may take a few days for all devices to receive it.
"Effective April 21, 2015, AT&T will release the Android 5.0 (Lollipop) software update for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active (SGH-I537). The update is available to customers to download via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA). Wi-Fi is required for the update and depending on the customer's current Android version, the file size is 974MB - 1.0GB," AT&T announced on its support pages.
The new update will bring several neat features and improvements to the table, aiming to enhance the overall experience. Users will now be able to enjoy songs, photos, apps, and even recent searches from one Android device across all Android devices. The new User Interface now looks and feels better, with more fluid motions and more pleasant visuals. Priority Mode will allow users to see only certain notifications, while Smart Lock will allow them to secure their mobile device by pairing it with a trusted device such as a wearable gadget or a car. Battery life optimization should improve the overall battery performance of the device, while indicators for remaining time left to charge or deplete now make it clearer and more convenient. Lastly, the most frequently used settings will now be available with just two swipes down from the screen.
