Samsung Galaxy Note Edge begins receiving Android 5.0.1 Lollipop



Another day, another device receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is next up in line. Samsung had already delivered the upgrade to Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users, so it’s not surprising the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge wasn’t far behind.

The upgrade is headed to folks in Australia first, though if Samsung’s other rollouts are any indication then it won’t take long to make its way to users in other countries. You’ll be expecting a file size of about 1.02GB large. That’s hefty so you’ll want to make sure you’re on WiFi with a comfortably charged battery before attempting to pull it down.

Samsung notes that the update requires about 3GB of space to be free, so try to delete some unwanted files and uninstall unwanted apps if you don’t have enough. They also note that the update will eat up an extra 950 megabytes of overall storage. That’s especially sucky for those who are already struggling to find space.

But by the end of it all you’ll have Android 5.0 Lollipop with TouchWiz on top, and we’d say that’s worth the cost of admission.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Lollipop with TouchWiz is like a real lollipop with a turd on it.

    1. You win the internet today… amazing

  2. I manually flashed the Lollipop update for the 910F that was released in Germany and I like it very much (I’m from Belgium). Touchwiz has never looked so good, and it flies. No lag or hiccups at all other than the short delay when opening the recent apps.

    1. Do you know if some if not all of the recent apps refresh after switching through the apps? For example, does a webpahe refresh itself after switching to it in the recent apps menu whether it was a short or long term frame before switching thing to the web browser again?

      1. That’s a good question. I’ll check it.

      2. I tested it. And no, we pages don’t refresh when switching to the browser again. You’ll see the page as it was at the moment you switch apps and the browser is “sent” to the recent apps overview.

        1. Thanks for testing. Do you know if they refresh, after not going back to the browser for a while?

    2. maybe they fixed the lag in 5.0.1? my s5 got 5.0 (not .1) and it likes to lag a good bit

  3. Does it break it like the s5 version?

  4. Not Sense 6 with some Lollipop is a match made in heaven
