Check out the Galaxy Note 4 running Android 5.0 Lollipop on video
After we saw two other hot Samsung devices – the Galaxy S4 and S5 – run an early build of Android 5.0 Lollipop on video, it is now the Note 4's turn.

Courtesy of SamMobile, the 3 minute-long preview gives us a peek into a world where the Note 4 is making use of the Material Design-ed OS update. That said, if you're familiar with how the aforementioned, TouchWiz-based devices looked like when running Lollipop, then you're unlikely to find any surprises here. Indeed, we again have a Material Design-inspired UI (incomplete, seeing as this is a non-final version of the software), complete with rich, Lollipop-style animated feedback and a revamped notifications area. Like before, it's now clear that Samsung will be adhering to the new design guidelines, so expect bright, solid colors throughout.

As pointed out already, not all Samsung apps have been restyled just yet, though the Dialer, Contacts, and Messaging, among others apps, have gone through a layer of fresh paint. You can see those in action in the video below.

The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Note 4 remains shrouded in some mystery, and we're still short an ETA. That said, the consensus right now seems to be that the Samsung phablet will get the new firmware either at very end of this year, or in the first few weeks of the next one. We hope that we have more than speculation to go on soon and will update you folks once we do.

Get in Gold if you're really looking into buying one. I got my black one 3 weeks ago and my sister got her's in Gold yesterday, and it is gorgeous. I still like mine, but not as much as the gold version.

the White one is gorgious, I will suggest white. I put black back cover on white, even black n white combination is gorgious. Now I am looking for blue back cover. the problem with black version is, it is actually not black, instead it is very dark gray. Which doesnt look as good as if it was black black.

I think it looks much better than the plain black fromt of the S5. My only grip on the Note 4, is it's gorilla glass, it is such a fingerprint and smudges magnet, never ran into this issue since the Galaxy S2, and i might consider covering it with a screen protector although i usually prefer my phones to be fully naked.

I put an Invisishield Glass on my Note 4 and it seems to resist fingerprints, still works great with the S-Pen, and gives extra protection if I ever did drop it on its face.

I stick nillkin tempered glass on the screen and it feels much better than original screen. Now the screen doesnt catch finger prints easily and feels slightly more smoother than the original

I did that with my Note 3 for better grip without a case. Waiting for Best Buy to get some Note 4 backs.

who cares what color? If you dont put a case on it, your a fool. Get whatever color case you want. :) Loving my Note 4. Cant wait till the official rom drops so XDA can debloat it and throw on a turbo charger. :)

I'm looking forward to this. Not only did lollipop revitalize my Nexus 4 and 2014 Moto X, but Liquid just released a beta lollipop build for my Galaxy S3, and its like a whole new phone.

Can't wait to get this, i usually turn off the animations on my phones, but i might turn them on this time. I am also curious about the slow motion video at higher frame rates, that's one of the things i liked in the new iPhone 6.

that has nothing to do with lolipop. It can already do that, and with a minor XDA tweak its even better... while still on 4.4.

The colors are hideous. If there turns out to be no efficiency and performance improvements over the kitkat, I might skip the Lollipop upgrade actually

Note 4 runs extremely well as it is... if it runs the same, I'd be very happy! If it was even a tiny bit better, I'd ecstatic.
