Android 5.0 update delayed for Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S5 users in Norway

Android 5.0 update delayed for Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S5 users in Norway
Samsung Norway has delayed the dissemination of the Android 5.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S5. Those owning the handsets in other regions have complained about problems and bugs that have affected their phones following the installation of Android 5.0. Because of these issues, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S5 users calling Samsung Norway to complain about the tardiness of the update, are being told that for the current time it is "on-hold."

The Samsung unit told callers that they are working feverishly on a new version of the update that will include fixes for all of the bugs that affected other users of the two former flagship models. These problems include random freezing of the phone, force closing of the contacts application, problems with the alarm on both handsets, crashes and performance issues.

Samsung Norway says that besides fixing all of the issues, its version of the Android 5.0 update will include a new solution for silent mode. Android 5.0 removes this setting from handsets powered by Google's open source OS.


Thanks for the tip!

well why are they delaying the updates, i think it was released at mid 2014 but still now we are not getting it, Google is a really crap company, publicly blowing off billions of dollar for patents, still after buying Motorola at 12 billion we thought that we could see the interplay of software and hardware but they sold it to the Lenovo at 2.5 billion dollar what a mess, ....and also after failure of their google glass they should have kept focus on android OS and should have made an effort to provide updates to the customers......but they can't do it because they are not focused like apple, they just want to win the game which they can't..
