Samsung begins Lollipop rollout for Canadian Samsung Galaxy S5 users, with bug fixes included
Samsung Galaxy S5 users in Canada will be happy to hear that a new version of the Android 5.0 update is being sent out to their phones. The original OTA update caused a number of issues in certain regions that forced Samsung to put a halt on sending it out. These problems included screen freezes, force closures and rapid battery draining. The new version of the update includes bug fixes for these problems so they should not affect Canadian Galaxy S5 users who install it on their phones.

The latest update has a build date of March 10th, so it is hot out of the oven. Canadian carriers like Kodoo and Bell have already posted information about the new build of Android 5.0 for the Galaxy S5. The update includes the new Material Design, the 64-bit ART compiler for faster opening of apps, Project Volta for longer battery life, the new "Recent Apps" screen, Quick Settings pull down menu from any page, Lock Screen notifications and more.

This is a rather hefty update, so your best bet is to have a Wi-Fi connection when downloading and installing it. And you might want to make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50%.


Thanks for the tip!
