AT&T has been on a roll lately and now, Lollipop has officially arrived for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Starting today, AT&T will begin pushing out an update to Android 5.0.1 (software version LRX22C.1337UCUGOC3) for the Galaxy S4 (SGH-i337).

The update weighs in at a whopping 947MB and brings with it a ton of new goodies. Here are the highlights as detailed by AT&T on their software updates page:

Android 5.0 Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy S4

  • Songs, photos, apps, and even recent searches from one Android device can be immediately enjoyed across all of your Android devices.
  • New User Interface look and feel, more fluid motions
  • Priority mode to only allow certain notifications to get through
  • Battery saving features and remaining time left to charge or deplete indicators
  • Smart Lock to secure phone or tablet by pairing it with a trusted device like a wearable or car
  • Most frequently used settings available with just two swipes down from the top screen
  • Details at: http://www.android.com/versions/lollipop-5-0/

Where typically these kind of updates add-in a few extra apps and bloatware, you may be surprised to find that some has actually been removed. Say goodbye to Code Scanner, Browser Bar and Softcard.

While you should be able to update fine, if you encounter any bugs or general weirdness, we’d recommend backing up all your data/photos/media and performing a factory reset and starting fresh. Especially when it’s a major firmware update like this.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. I’m a very jealous Verizon customer right now.

    1. I’m a very jealous AT&T customer with an S5 right now. That’s right, AT&T released Lollipop for the S4 before the S5.

      1. Thats so unfair. I would be just as pissed as you.

      2. a day later, there it is.

  2. C’mon Verizon! My S4 needs sum love and the s6 is priced so high I will be waiting for holiday pricing.

  3. Yet my tmobile note 4 hasn’t gotten the official one yet.

  4. Yet the S5 on the same carrier is still not updated… smh

  5. ETA for S4 on Verizon: a million months.

  6. What about the Note Edge ? :(

  7. am I wrong that the AT&T S5 still hasnt received lollipop? what in all the fucks is that about?

    1. Mine has not.

    2. I can relate. The T-Mobile Note 4 hasn’t received Lollipop, but the Note 3 on TMO has.

  8. Good for them. Meanwhile, I’m not sure if and when I’ll get lollipop for my Tmobile Sony z3 and for how long we’ll get updates now that tmobile does not sell it anymore. All of the sudden, going back to galaxy is looking good.

  9. I hope they do the same for the Galaxy S4 Active. I really want Lollipop.

    1. Yep, me too. We are still on 4.4.2 waiting…

      1. Exactly. The international models already have Lollipop. I don’t understand why we don’t already have it too.

  10. Does that mean the VZW S4 is right around the corner?

  11. This is why I stick with the Nexus brand.

  12. They took out some features of lollipop. No knock to wake, no flashlight in the notification shade, no battery percent on the battery icon (the apps that enable it only work for a little while), no low power mode, no lockscreen widgets (not sammy’s fault). There is a volume popup like before and a power popup that has restart. Waiting for the G4!

  13. Well I can certainly appreciate all the acrimony about why certain devices are getting the update, and others not. I was supposed to be able to upgrade my device two days ago, but the install keeps failing. Talk about aggravation. They only let you try once a day too. So if the install fails, try again tomorrow! Grrrr.
