U.S. Cellular's Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge start receiving Android 5.0.1
Those sporting the U.S. Cellular branded Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Samsung Galaxy Note Edge are starting to receive the Android 5.0.1 update, sent out starting today by the carrier. Users can also sync with their PC, head over to Samsung Kies, and pull out the update this way. If you are planning on waiting for the OTA update, U.S. Cellular is requesting that you use a Wi-Fi connection while downloading and installing it. This is due to the massive size of the file.

The update includes the Material Design, giving off a fresh and colorful vibe. Also included is Lock Screen notifications and Smart Lock, which allows you to unlock your phone by pairing it with a "Trusted Device" like an Android Wear powered smartwatch. The 64-bit ART compiler lets apps open faster, and Project Volta adds to your battery life. A new "Recent Apps" page is also part of the update.

Because the update is sent out in waves, you might not receive it today or tomorrow. If you just have to have the update now, plugging into your computer and coaxing the update out of Samsung Kies would be the way to go. Otherwise, just sit back and relax. The update will come.

Its really simple not to click on the link troll. PA reports news when there is news. Sony is the only real suitor to create news
