Galaxy S5 Plus and Galaxy S5 have access to the new Android Lollipop after Sammy installed the new OS update in the handset this week.The update includes an upgrade from the Kitkat to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Android 5.0 Lollipop is available for both unlocked Galaxy S5 LTE-A and carrier based devices in South Korea. Some countries in Europe can download the Android update from the Samsung KIES website.In America, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile have already rolled out the Android update. However, the Galaxy S4 owners and the AT&T customers across the world may have to wait longer for the update to be enabled in their handsets. According to AT&T, which has a reputation of being last in releasing Android updates, they are installing the new update through constant testing to avoid any bugs.In the meantime, the AT&T customers are still using the Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. AT&T may be right when delaying since some bugs have already been discovered in the new update running on the Galaxy series, mostly on the Galaxy S4 and S5 handsets. The update has issues concerning constant phone and contact applications crashing and freezing.Some bugs cause alarm application to fail. Some of the users have complained missing important meetings or waking up late.
