T-Mobile is now updating the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop

T-Mobile is now updating the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
Last week, T-Mobile started updating the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, and today the Magenta carrier announced that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is now being updated to Lollipop as well. 

The update clocks in at a sizeable 1.1GB, and T-Mobile won't let you use the mobile data connection to download it, so you'll have to stick close to a Wi-Fi network.

The new update will bring your Galaxy Note Edge to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, baseband version N915TUVU1COD7. The OTA has already started spreading across the T-Mobile network, but as always, this is a gradual rollout, so don't panic if your smartphone isn't ready to make the jump just yet. To check if the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OTA update is available for your device, you can head on to Settings -> About Device -> Software Update. 

If you can't wait for the OTA update to reach your handset, you can download the update from T-Mobile's website, and use the provided instructions to install the 5.0.2 version of Lollipop on your own device. Both the download link and the instructions are available through the source link below.

Compared to KitKat, Android 5.0 Lollipop brings a number of new features, such as a new TouchWiz version that follows Google's Material Design user interface principles, improved lockscreen notifications, and the new Smart Lock feature that allows you to unlock your Note 4 Edge with an Android Wear smartwatch. Under the hood, Lollipop also comes with the new 64-bit ART compiler, one that should help with overall app performance.

Not that it matters much, but it's actually 5.0.1.

Have you downloaded it? The reason I ask is because the source (T-Mobile's Software Update Page) says that the version is 5.0.2. I'm curious if it was just a mix-up on t-mobile's part or if they are the first to send out a 5.0.2 update to a Samsung Note device.

It's a mistake on T-Mobile's part. My buddy downloaded it last night.

Downloaded it last night. Can definetly tell the difference in speed while working in the GUI. Transistions between apps is faster. Opening apps seems to be faster as well. Phone just overall seems more responsive, which is always a good thing. Love the little refinements that were done to the GUI as well. Just wish it didnt take so long for TMo to get out there.

I updated my Galaxy Note Edge last night at it was great. But this morning after heading to school, I noticed my battery was draining literally before my eyes. From 7am-9am, it dropped completely and by 9:30am it was completely dead. Is anyone noticing problems like this? It says that the phone is always "Awake" under the battery history but the screen time is not there, so the phone thinks its on. Any solutions or tips would be much appreciated.

My battery time is pretty much exactly what it was before the update.
