    Samsung Android 5.1 Release: 10 Things You Can Count On

    Kind of a mixed bag in terms of changes, fixes and bugs. Release still expected in June.

    If you hear more news, post it here. Thanks.

    Galaxy Note 4 Android 5.1 Lollipop update incoming in the next two weeks - GeekSnack

    GN4 to get Lollipop 5.1.1 before the GS6? Doesn't seem likely. A flagship smartphone should get it first.

    Are you talking Google nexus 4 or galaxy note 4?

    The nexus 4 is googles own. They almost always get updates first. Even if they are older. The note 4 is a flagship device, just in the phablet catagory.

    The Note 4 is a flagship phone and will remain so until the Note 5. The Galaxy Note and Galaxy S lines are Samsung's flagships so if the Note 4 got 5.1.1 a bit before or the same time as the S6 I would not be surprised. Also that article is all sorts of wrong. It says the S6 got 5.1 as an OTA already.

    That said 5.1.1 is mostly going to be under the hood improvements that hopefully take care of Lollipop biggest bugs but with Android M close to being announced I am curious how many of the nasty Lollipop bug fixes got pushed to M.

    The GS6 is a more current device and should get it first.

    But what of the people who bought their note 4's on launch day in September? They've been waiting a lot longer than us s6 owners to get the update. They've waited 9 months. We've only got to wait another month or so.

    When you put it that way, fair point. I was looking at it from the appearance of current Google devices getting and then non-Google devices. Just to clarify just in case it wasn't clear to those wondering ..non-Google Android devices. It was just my thought based upon what I have been reading and watching past OS updates on my prior Android devices.

    Yeah, some have updated from newer to older devices instead of older to newer like Samsung in this case. But it doesn't bother me as we haven't waited that long.

    Google's own products will always get it first but there has been no rhyme or reason the way they update. Luck of the draw I guess as to which one gets updated first.

    At least those if us with hair..meant as a humorous remark and not as offensive or sarcastic or judgmental in any way for those wondering. Apologies in advance for those who are sensitive about being follicularly challenged.

    I'm playing with a device that's on 5.0.0 and I'm not caring. It's still lollipop and it still works.

    As for the S6 we will get it when we get it. At least right now my S6 is doing well, takes great pics, and has strong battery life. I'll take a minor update or two, but I'm in no rush for 5.1.1.
    It will happen when it happens.

    I would like to see more consistent updates form the OEM's but as always the carriers get in the way. Hoping to see 5.1.1 soon.

    Same here. My S6 running 5.0.2 is awesome enough and I'm in no rush for the update. I admit new features and performance enhancements are nice...but I'm happy with the phone the way it is.

    If the new update doesn't help with battery life at all I'm switching my sim card back to my iPhone six plus
