    It looks as though AT&T customers on a range of phones, including the Galaxy S5, will be waiting a lot longer for Lollipop to be released according to a recent article.

    Whilst Samsung began to roll out Lollipop nearly 4 months ago and have issued around 200 firmwares to the worldwide S5 models, some of whom are on their third Lollipop update, AT&T have so far only released an Android KitKat, 4.4.4, bugfix update this year. Meanwhile, other U.S. carriers such as, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and Bluegrass have all been Lollipop'd.

    However, both AT&T and Verizon do not use Samsung for their heavily carrier modified updates, see #1.6 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide, and after Verizon's disastrous launch of their version of Lollipop in February which has earned them a worldwide reputation, yet again, for issuing a less than satisfactory, mandatory, firmware update, AT&T may have decided to hold off and base their release on one of the latest stock Samsung Lollipop firmwares, to avoid the embarrassment suffered by Verizon and the frustration of their customers.

    Alternatively, it could be that with the flood of Lollipop firmwares for a whole range of devices, that they will need to heavily modify and add their bloatware to, they simply cannot keep up.

    Good for AT&T. 5.0-5.0.2 are known to have a memory leak, so who wants them? Maybe 5.1 fixed it, maybe not, but unless the battery drain is WAY less than on 4.4, why update to a white screen on a phone with an Amoled display - that's a battery killer.

    On 4.4.4 I can't get more than 10-14 hours on battery before I got 1 day before charging. ...or maybe battery is going bad
