When can we expect the micro update? It seems really weird that all of the sudden phone get stopped working which forces us to remove battery to resume again and lots of other bugs too like system UI crash, App force close etc..
Best Samsung firmware is always the one that come with the phone during launch. Subsequent updates has always screwed the device or it's battery life. Only thing that is better seem to be overall performance.
I have the S5. Before update i could put a call on speaker and toggle to other windows. Now I can still put the call on speaker but cannot go to other windows.
Hi! it's my first post here on Gsmarena. I am from Pakistan and I have S5 G900FD. This is a qualcomm variant which has dual sim option. After updating my phone from Kitkat to Lollipop, i have not seen any bugs(yet) however, the battery life has noticeably taken a hit. Battery drain is one of the huge problems for me. On kitkat, battery used to be longer but this update has messed up with the battery somehow. I do hope that Samsung takes some action to rectify this issue.

So, So true. One of the best posts I've seen on the subject. The sad part is that on the S5 Forum there are users STILL asking when they will get Lollipop.
Bad Lollipop on S5 G900F update, especially slow multitasking, hangs, consume much battery (compared to kitkat). Something that really annoyed me is "Unfortunately, Contact has stopped" always appear even i update it to the newest lollipop firmware.

That's lame! Or did Sams... moreNo not all users, but many who look at forums/comments got warned about buggy lollipop since Samsung is rolling per country. And yet, if you look at S5 comments section, they were craving to update to lollipop then same ones were complaining a few pages after that.
There's a difference between normal users updating without knowing and those updating who got warned by others and then bitching here.
I couldn't wait for these micro updates. As far as I was concerned the S5 was useless to me... Android lollipop works so much better on the S6, worth the money!
Had a galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S4 and now S5. On kit kat it was the best phone I ever had, went to Lollipop, just awful. Hangs, crashes, battery life has bombed... just a load of rubbish. Seriously considering other brands now instead of S6. Come on Samsung sort it, please.
Samsung need to fix this update my phone hangs,having problem with the phone mounting and unmounting the SD card, my contact crashes on every fresh boot. I should never update to lolipop.:(
I'm using samsung galaxy s5 from its launch when it's launch it was issue with battery and stability performance after a update there where no issues was running awesome after lollypop update there are lot of bugs mainly battery drains like hell I and heates up when continues usage up to just 45min or 1hr and hanging problem so samsung please fix this issue as soon as possible hope u guys ll bring update as after launching
samsung know nothing about software optimization. what they knew is octa core chips, Qhd display, ddr4 ram etc.

That's lame! Or did Samsung say: hey the update is buggy, update at your own risk!
Lollypop has memory leak problems, and suddenly screen disappear, crash, etc. NOT on kitkat. Seems google has to fix this
No problems what so ever. Doing fine. I'm from Suriname, South America.
Downside of android phones.
Issues with running the latest version of android, next year the s6''s will have issues running the latest versions of android.
Mine S5 is from UAE after lollipop update i have problem in finger print unlock, battery heating up while browseing and gaming system is slow
Anonymous, 02 May 2015mine works just fine i have absolutely no problem with s5 on lollipop...btw i am from romaniaMine too since 3 weeks : it's when i received a bugfix update.
Still it's not on par with kitkat's speed but it's much better without any of bugs said here.
But hey, many users got warned about buggy lollipop on S5 and still they went to update their phone knowing that.
