Would it be more beneficial to upgrade to lollipop or to keep KitKat?

Posted via the Android Central App

There are 40 different models of Galaxy S5. See, 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

Since the launch of Lollipop on the S5 there have been over 500 different Lollipop official firmwares from Samsung as well as the clone firmwares from Verizon and AT&T. See, S5 Lollipop (Android 5) latest releases

The vast majority of Lollipop firmwares are much better than KitKat whilst the Verizon versions have been an unmitigated disaster, by-and-large.

Depends on which model of Galaxy S5 you have. No problems with rooting all the models and firmwares except the latest Verizon OE1 release. See, Verizon OE1 update prevents rooting/downgrading
