Galaxy Note 3 user in Vietnam gets Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA, more to follow?

In all fairness, Samsung could very well start with Vietnam and still not have a significant portion of the globe covered until "early 2015". We scanned several of the bigger Vietnamese tech blogs, and it would appear that none of them have caught wind of this just yet, so we might have a misstep by Samsung or, of course, a fabrication.
Interestingly enough, Samsung-Updates, a site specializing in diligently archiving all Samsung updates as soon as they pop up, apparently had the 5.0 update for the SM-N900U Note 3 model, but took it down for an unknown reason, so even if you do have that same model, you can't pick the update from there just yet. Regardless, we'll keep our ear to the ground – we know many of you are anxious about getting Lollipop.
- Display 5.7" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, Quad-core, 2300 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 3200 mAh(21h 3G talk time)

Probably because Samsung was sent the Lollipop code shortly after the Summer. This means they were able to test the code on the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 3. Since they were still working on the Galaxy Note 4, they probably weren't able to test the code on it

Touchwiz don't suck but the load of bloatware that come with it do. You have to disable most of them if you don't use them to prevent it from consuming your phone resources. Anyway this is basic house keeping all android user should learn.
