Samsung Galaxy Note Edge gets over-the-air Android Lollipop update

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge gets over-the-air Android Lollipop update
Before the Galaxy S6 edge brought its curvaceous edginess to the fore, Samsung dabbled in rounded-off displays with the Galaxy Note Edge. It's a device that owners are crazy about, and in our own review, we enjoyed almost every aspect aside from the high price. With a number of smartphones currently getting their Android Lollipop updates, the Note Edge is also joining in the fun, with Verizon now rolling out the OTA of version 5.0.

Coinciding with the release of Android 5.1 for the Motorola DROID Turbo on Verizon, Android 5.0 for the Note Edge adds improved notifications, general performance tweaks, and of course, the Material Design makeover. With US Cellular and T-Mobile having already rolled Lollipop out for the Galaxy Note Edge quite a while ago now, it's good to see that Verizon has finally got to it. 

The new update is version N915VVRU2BOF2, and should be making its way over the air as we speak. If you haven't already gotten the notification, it could take a couple of days, so you may have to sit on your hands for just a little longer.

With a boatload of great features including a quad-HD display, slick design, impressive processor and an equally strong camera, the Galaxy Note Edge is unquestionably a great device. Like the S6 edge, however, it doesn't come cheap, and with stiff competition from Apple's iPhone 6 Plus upon its release last year, probably doesn't get the recognition that it deserves. 

If you do happen to own the Verizon Galaxy Note Edge and have received the update, let us know what you think via the comments.
