Samsung has released a stability update for the Galaxy S 5 in Poland, which is the second Android 5.0 that particular variant has seen. Since it’s already been updated to Lollipop, this update doesn’t include much except for some performance enhancements, but it does mean that a bigger rollout is likely going to happen in the near future.
This update’s not going out over-the-air just yet, so if you want this update you’ll have to snag it from Samsung Kies 3 on your computer. Hopefully we’ll hear more about this update making its way to other countries soon.
If you’ve been waiting around for the latest Android build to hit the Nexus 5, you’re in luck. Android 5.0.1 has finally been released for the Nexus 5, joining most other Nexus devices.
You can grab the download below, and if you need help getting it installed, check our guide to manually install the update.
Sprint Nexus 5 users, start spamming your check update buttons now. Of course I kid, that does little to speed up the process, but it appears that Sprint has green-lighted the Android 5.0.1 update for the Nexus 5 and is in the process of pushing the update to last year’s Nexus flagship. An expected bug fix, Android 5.0.1 fixes issues with factory resetting the device along with video playback issues the Nexus 7 (2013) was having.
Vodafone is the first operator in the UK to begin the much-anticipated Android 5.0 Lollipop update roll out to all its carrier-branded variants of the LG G3 currently located in the region.
All the changes you’d expect to find in Lollipop are bundled into this upgrade, including the recently-announced Material Design guidelines, improved notifications, a smoother multitasking experience and support for multiple user accounts. LG has also revamped a handful of its own, stock applications too.
Hit the break below for the full changelog.
Samsung has officially begun the roll out of Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Google Play Edition Galaxy S4. Since it’s a GPe device, it is first in line among OEM handsets to receive the latest updates. Strangely, the Galaxy S4 is one of the last GPe handsets to get the update with the likes of the HTC One M8, One M7, Sony Z Ultra, the LG G Pad 8.3, the Moto G etc getting the update already.
With the LTE Nexus 9 going official yesterday, Google has now posted factory images of Android 5.0.1 for the device. This should mean that an OTA update is on the horizon if you bought the device yesterday from T-Mobile. You can also get the tablet through the Google Play Store, although the device was only available from T-Mobile for a while.
Those of you with a Google Play Edition Moto G will be happy to know that Android 5.0.1 is rolling now. You know the drill by now. It will probably take a few weeks until all the devices are updated. We know you can’t wait any longer, and trust me checking for updates won’t make it go any faster.
You can wait around or you can take matters into your own hands and download the OTA Zip file now and install it yourself. It’s really not that hard. You can simply follow our guide for ADB sideloading, and you will be enjoying Lollipop in no time. Download the file below first before checking out our guide.

Just as Google announced the Lollipop update for Android Wear devices, the companion app for smartphones is also receiving an update today. This update is quite substantial in the overall scheme of things as it introduces the Material Design UI, which has been missing from the app so far.
A trio of devices from Samsung operating on T-Mobile’s network are receiving software updates. The Galaxy S 4, Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 LTE, and Galaxy Avant are the devices getting attention today.
The updates for the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Avant are identical. Both devices added Chinese as a supported language. The build for the Galaxy S 4′s update is M919UVUFNK2 while the Galaxy Avant’s is G386TUVU1ANK3.
The Galaxy Tab 4, though, is getting a heavier update that stabilizes the user experience. The build is T337TUVU1BNK4.
