Android 5.0.2 rolls out OTA for the Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5

Besides France, there are some owners of the tablet in other areas like the U.S. India, Romania, Poland and Canada who claim that they have been able to update the tablet in the country. While Android 5.1 will take care of issues that pop up with Android 5.0.2, the dreaded memory leak, which has created havoc with a number of Android users, probably won't be repaired until Android 5.1.1 makes its appearance.
Are you the impatient type? Well, instead of sitting back and waiting for your slate to receive the notification that the update has arrived, you can go to Menu >> Settings >> About device >> Software update >> Update on the device and try to coax out the notification. Or, you can sync your tablet to your PC and suck the update out of Samsung Kies.
And there is one piece of good news. You can now mute your tablet by moving the "Sound" slider all the way down on Quick Settings.

Sad to see how badly the latest and polished update for the most powerful tablet of Samsung lags. :(

Pretty snappy to me! I watch the video twice just to be sure. Must be your own phone that lag during playback.

I have no idea what you're talking about. Ive updated my tab S a few days ago (the manual update files can be found on xda-developers.com) and it is snappier than ever. Also the antutu score has gone up to 40k from 32k before, soo this update has brought a lot of good stuff.

Maybe it's your brain that is lagging? My Tab S has been running on Lollipop, and i am yet to face any single lag! Sure it did lag after the 1st boot after the update, but since then, it is as smooth as my Note 4. And i do appreciate the fact that now i can turn off the news feed off my homescreen.
