Hey guys I am in South Africa and have just had the update pop up. After the last few months of reading mixed reviews on the update. I would like to know directly from you guys if it is worth it and what precautions should be made before installing... Thanks in advance.

Unlike, say, AT&T or Verizon users who account for the vast majority of complaints on forums, you will be getting genuine Samsung stock Lollipop firmware. To-date, Samsung have released over 500 Lollipop firmwares worldwide for the Galaxy S5 and it is generally regarded as a big improvement on KitKat. From my own point of view I find it offers better battery and performance and would never return to KitKat.

Two threads that will give you a better idea of your model of S5 and how to prepare for Lollipop, are...
