Sprint Galaxy Note 4 units start receiving sweet Lollipop

Sprint Galaxy Note 4 units start receiving sweet Lollipop
The Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop update is going ahead with full force it seems. One of our readers has reported that Android 5.0.1-based TouchWiz has greeted them this morning from their Sprint Note 4. So, if you own a phablet bought from said carrier, you should be getting the update any moment now.

Don't have sweet Lollipop on your Note 4 yet? Go ahead and page through the full UI comparison we've cooked in the article here. As you can see – the interface is not radically different. Its colors are brighter, its borders have been flattened and simplified, and some minor functions have been added here and there. Now, the update we received lacked a "mute sound" feature, as did stock Lollipop 5.0, but the one that was rolled out to our Note Edge did have it – a bit weird, we are guessing it was an afterthought that managed to stick to the Edge's update, as it was issued a couple of weeks after the Note 4's.


Thanks for the tip, Anh!

Sprint first? Who would've guessed it. Little jealousy on my end with T-mobile

Surprisingly, Sprint has been one of the fastest carriers to update their phones in the US. Plus Sprint, as an added bonus, do not lock the bootloaders of their phones :)

Just checked for the update and it's downloading as I type this. Total size: 1016.85MB in case you're wondering the file size. I will update once it's installed and using it for the day to see how it has improved.

Also XDA has verified root and custom recovery (TWRP) is working after today's update. Go SPRINT!

Oh boy. I believe with the other manufacturers updating, Motorola will come out and say oops sorry Moto X 2013 can't be updated. My bad. :(

Funny. I have had Galaxy S2 and S4, as well as Note4. Every major update has come on Sprint first. I think Sprint has a IN with Sammy.

"Now, the update we received lacked a "mute sound" feature, as did stock Lollipop 5.0, but the one that was rolled out to our Note Edge did have it – a bit weird," Wait.. Is this meant to say that you guys also had lollipop roll to the Note Edge on sprint as well? Because that's how the above reads.. If this is the case you guys are the only one who are saying it...
