wl , 29 May 2015Is it possible to downgrade from lollipop to kitkat with the s5 duos ? Yes! but manually thru Odin, just download the Firmware you want for s5 duos and Odin from "Sammobile.com" (follow the instruction from there) It is official Firmwares so don't worry. The Lollipop update for Russia runs smooth unlike UAE update - laggy, I tried both and currently using the UAE lollipop since my s5 is UAE version with kit-kat and I'm planning to revert to Russian Lollipop.
10 days ago I received a micro update, 340 Mb size. After installation phone became very fast and responsive. Two days later became, and still is laggy and slow responsive. For example, before in maxx 3 second my camera was ready, now it takes like 5 second....kind of dissapointed....does anyone knows how to downgrade to 4.4.2?

its a pretty good phone guys
Tcool, 26 May 2015Really?!!!i tried BNL9 for 2weeks & BOC1 for 1week they are smooth no lags but battery drained fast max.15-18 hours even after cleaning cache & reset to factory default. BOE2 now in 2.5 days with remaining 17% battery however i have noticed lag in screen transition and playing games but not too often.i feel that samsung reduced the performance of GS5 duos with BOE2 to compensate the power of the battery.

Head to the desired connection in Settings and select the Forget Network option. Once that's done, users will then need to reconnect to the Wi-Fi network with the password so make sure that it's readily available.
finally a stable battery power comes up with UAE BOE2 for my GS5 duos. though lag at some points compared to russian BNL9 & BOC1 which is smooth & fast for me this BOE2 is acceptable. thank you samsung for the new firmware
[deleted post]It is to give way to new models.
Otherwise who will buy it if it has the same price as S6 or S6 Edge.

Wait until it is stable.
Majed, 24 May 2015Lollipop update received... Riyadh KSAIf I were you, I won't install the Lollipop update.
There are still lots of problem with it.
Since Kitkat is still working totally fine with this unit, what is the reason to update to Lollipop?
Just wait until Lollipop on S5 Duos became stable.

But I am afraid I might experience severe battery drain, lags, Wi-Fi connectivity issues, overheating and more since it is not possible to revert to Kitkat.
