Bug fixes coming as Android 5.0.2 is tested for Samsung Galaxy S5

Bug fixes coming as Android 5.0.2 is tested for Samsung Galaxy S5
Earlier this month, we told you that Samsung was prepping micro-updates to send out to various models in order to fix bugs related to the earlier Android 5.0 update. Today, there is word that Android 5.0.2 is being tested for the Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900). According to the report, the test is being conducted in partnership with Australian carrier Optus.

According to information from Optus' website, Android 5.0.2  should be ready to roll out for the Galaxy S5 in early June. The new month actually starts tomorrow. The update includes bug fixes and performance improvements. If all goes well, carrier testing in other countries will presumably follow.

While the Samsung Galaxy S5 already was updated to Android 5.0, other models that were updated later in the cycle, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A (SM-G901F) received Android 5.0.2 right off the bat.


Thanks for the tip!

Why didn't they skip to 5.1? Is it mandatory to go through all the versions? 5.1 isn't exactly new.

They should went directly to 5.1.1, for now only S6 and S6 Edge are getting 5.1.1 and Note 4 in June. Hopefully with M things will be faster tho. I am using 5.0.2 custom on S4 and its working great.

Using 5.0.2 on my Note4 Exynos. Overclocked cpu and Gpu, cpu mode in performance mode, rather than on-deman. Gpu raised to 800mhz, cpu to 2.5th, also voltage raised, and Cpu thresholds. It's 35% faster than standard. Exynos or Snapdragon.

I'm on a debloated stock ROM with minimal modifications, this thing rocks. Still lags a little though. Note 4 Snapdragon version here.

How are the android users liking lollipop? My only experience with it was using the s6 edge at AT&T a few times, is it pretty good?

Using my Edge on VZW. Good so far. I moved about 50GB of music and I saw some hiccups in the ui but it went away after a couple days. I moved my data back to an sdcad and using Leef adapter. I am loving the device. It is fast very fast. The camera is amazing even when using tge voice to snap it is instant. The themes add a nice touch too.

It's got its good and bad, like everything else. It's mostly very peppy. In general, I don't like the visual design much (I prefer dark backgrounds, this is white everywhere). The battery is slightly worse than KK, but not by much. Of course, this is TouchWiz Lollipop on my Note 4,which bears very little resemblance to Lollipop on other devices.

More evolutionary than revolutionary?

Pretty happy with it. I'm on a custom ROM though, but only a debloat and prerooted one, very minimal changes from stock. Battery is same with Kitkat, material design is great IMO, lags are present in only some situations (recent apps menu)

I an sorry my friend, This update is from 5.0 to 5.0.2 only for the S5. My S4 has 5.0.2 for more than 3 months now. Its awesome and the responsiveness is vastly improved.

No the Galaxy Core Prime gets the new touchwiz and its 5.0.2 only. So the S5 will get it too.
