Videos show Android 5.0.1 running on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will both eventually get updated to Android 5.0.1. If you're curious to see what both phones will look like with Material Design and new features, you can check out a couple of videos produced by SamMobile. The videos show some of the new capabilities coming to the two models following the update.

For example, with Android 5.0.1, the Display and Wallpaper settings on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge will allow you to select Ambient Display. Pressing the circle icon on the top corner of the phone will display a box showing how much storage is being consumed by content such as images, music, voice, documents and others. And Share with Contacts is a new messaging option that lets you send a long text message, share an original photo with friends, and check the delivery status of a message. The update also adds fast/slow motion video recording and exterminates some bugs.

The features for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge are the same, outside of the special capabilities for the wrap-around screen. If you can't wait for Android 5.0.1 to hit your Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge, click on the videos below. By the way, speculation calls for the updates to arrive next month.

eehhm.... well it looks like a minor change to TouchWiz. it is like implementing Lollipops exclusive known options and settings that are present in stock Android {Nexus devices} in the same launcher, with 90% similar looking style and the same happened with the HTC phones {if the rumors to be true} where only minimal changes where applied looks like OEMs are saving their exclusive unique features for the flagships in Q1 2015 ? we will see a newer UI in almost all OEM phones, and i have high doubts about that, specially the upcoming HTC Sense 7 let's wait and see...

looks smooth and stable. good. The one thing I want them to change on stock TW with the update is the delay between hitting the "recent apps" button and when it starts rendering. It really needs to be instant. That one second delay is goofy and pointless.
