Samsung taking forever to roll out lollipop for this phone. I don't even think it's going to get lollipop again.

It's not hurry for new o's update.

But samsung should consider s5 before s4.
all of us will buy flagship handset's because they will get latest os updates before older models.

This was one of the reasons.

But samsung ditched Indian S5 consumers.

Why rush on the firmware upgrade? Be patient before flashing to lollipop until stable versions have been released.
I've read that snapdragon version is better, that the octacore lags. It's true it lags but from experience the octacore phone performs much better on heavy duty like gaming, video, etc.I would not go back to quad core version.
As for battery life it improved a lot since last update to kernel 3.10.9-2712167.
In conclusion this is a good phone, on the top of the list.

I have downloaded the firmware 5.0 (Lollipop)for GS5 (SM-G900H) from the Sammobile (size 2.39GB) Build Number LRX21T.G900HXXU1BOA7 through Odin v3.10.6 in Nepal. It is not a problem with new firmware, working fine. I notice initially Finger Scanner improved and now smooth. Touchwiz looks different then KITKAT. 5.0 Lollipop second firmware G900HXXU1BOAD also need to update for battery performance. It is also possible to update through Samsung Kies.

Upgrade is not the fact..... The fact is the battery life and performance.... With out producing heat.... Does lollipop meet the criteria? Who knows..? Please confirm me....

Bought the device -unlocked g900h- from Kazakhstan but living in another country and there isn't any update popped up yet, neither thru ota nor Kies. Will i get the update based on the country i live or what?
