    Any hint on Verizon's intent to update?

    That's the $64,000 question, as far as I'm concerned (since I have an SM-G900V, too).

    Easy one to answer...





    Seriously, the Verizon update is all down to them... as per #1.6 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide. Samsung have nothing to do with their clone firmware.

    Yeah I'm on Verizon also. I feel like we have been left in the dust and they don't care. They are so far behind in updating to a more stable and better build. As ironass has stated...... Verizon is on a very old outdated firmware/changelist.

    I love this OE5 update. I feel like my device is again faster... Apps launch a bit faster and overall experience become smooth.. its really noticeable.. for me at least.

    Every release lately, I think Samsung can't possibly improve on the firmware any more and then they do! I know what you mean about the speed of apps launching... very fast.

    Try the camera. I can open it, focus and shoot a picture all in 3-4 seconds.

    When I reboot the phone, Wi-Fi is already connected by the time the screen comes on.

    Scrolling is super smooth and lag free too.

    Too early to say about the battery as I give it around 5 cycles but it is certainly no worse than OD3, which added about 20% life.

    Just reporting the TMobile version is so far bug free... my build numbers match.
    I just can't get used to the "white" settings background now instead of the black from 4.4.2
    My upgrade was over 900mb

    AT&T takes way longer for updates. We got the Lollipop update way late and have not seen any bug fixes at all .

    It takes AT&T and Verizon around 2 months to issue one of their clone firmwares, see #1.6 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide, by which time there can be 3 more updates from Samsung on the worlwide models, see post #1. I have had 5 updates from Samsung for Lollipop in less than 5 months!

    Not a mind blowing change from OD3 to OE5... but worth it IMHO.

    Strange, OED has just been released for the Netherlands on a lower changelist, #4854135, than OE5 on #4920185

    See how lucky our cousins across the pond are! They don't have to worry about all these updates to their phones or, even which update to go for. They just get what they are given... or not!

    How can you tell... you've only just flashed it!

    As per mypost #32...

    "Too early to say about the battery as I give it around 5 cycles but it is certainly no worse than OD3, which added about 20% life."


    EDIT Just took this screenshot of my stock battery on OE5...

    Compared to the first time I flashed the OD3 there's a slight difference.
    Anyway, I hope that I'm wrong.

    You cannot make a battery judgement after a couple of hours as the update will have affected the battery chip... hence my 3-5 charge cycles or a battery recalibration as per #1.6 of S5 Lollipop Update Problems - Dummies Guide. A cache partition wipe never hurts, either.
