AnonD-149126, 04 Dec 2014I like Galaxy S4 & planning to buy but ONLY one problem with S4 is old Android version. I... more"one problem with S4 is old Android version."
Why is that a "problem"? Android 4.x with touchwiz looks almost the same as Android 5.x with Touchwiz, so what's the big deal?
At least the S4 has FULL call recording (including recording over Bluetooth headset) without root.
As for all the complainers about Touchwiz. What's the big deal, just install Apex/Nova or any other launcher. Sure a launcher only changes the frontscreen but some features of Touchwiz are nice to have. I like the TW camera app, the touchwiz notification toggles and the Samsung optimized browser is really fast.
So not all Touchwiz features are crap.
Android Man, 04 Dec 2014I just hope it brings speed to the S5, as S5 is laggy. will check out the update. If not happy... more"I just hope it brings speed to the S5, as S5 is laggy"
You must have a different S5 than me then. I find the S5 the most responsive S-phone to date.
I just hope to have full call-recording including call-recording from BT-headsets. Otherwise I'll go back to my Nokia 808Pureview.
At least all important telephony features works as expected on these old smartphones unlike all those "modern" devices. Meh!
Well,as a Polish citizen, I'm surprised too :) Poland is uniqe and S5 does not lag at all!:)
Does it also mean that we will now have 40% better battery life? Thats what 5.0 was suppose to bring on the table when it was initially announced to developers
my S5 never lags , i don´t know why people keep say´n that, maybe they buy cheap chinese copies and complain jaja
i have an s5 and it's not even close to being laggy. I can sure say that the s5 is the best S phone to date, and the software is sharper than ever.
of smartphones updates capital? first g3 and now s5 starts lollipop in Poland, whats the case?
Why Nexus Device are better :
My Friend :- Yuppie!Android Lollipop 5.0 is rolling out.May reach my device any time now!!
Me :- Bitch please!5.0 is old news.Now 5.0.1 is seeding the Nexus devices.Moreover I don't think there will be much difference between touchwiz kitkat and lollipop.
My Friend :- Poker face :/
when the update in india which is free from carrier contracts
I just hope it brings speed to the S5, as S5 is laggy. will check out the update. If not happy im off to an Iphone 6
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2014Much wow. So Samesung. Someone tell Sammy we're on 5.0.1 now, not the buggy initial release. People always have to find something to bash, might as well bash everyone cos in some ways others have fark up stuff as well.
Android, 04 Dec 2014why always poland????????????? Because of Samsung's big R&D in Poland, it makes software.
AnonD-338016, 04 Dec 2014you will kill yourself when you get the update.Before that u will kill urself waiting for the update. ..
Much wow. So Samesung.
Someone tell Sammy we're on 5.0.1 now, not the buggy initial release.
It's not available just yet. Not for the unlocked version, anyway. I doubt carrier-sold versions get it faster.
