AT&T HTC One M7 Should Get Lollipop Today (Updated)

According to HTC’s Mo Versi, the One M7 on AT&T should see its Lollipop as early as today. In a Tweet sent yesterday afternoon, Versi noted that they had received “technical approval” on the update and that it would start March 31.

We are still waiting for AT&T to post details of the update, but once that happens, we will update this post.

Let us know if you see it!  (more…)

Verizon is Pushing a New Lollipop Update to the Galaxy S5 That Hopefully Isn’t Terrible

Back in early February, Verizon pushed out an Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its version of the Galaxy S5. Most people couldn’t believe it, as this was the first S5 variant in the US to see the jump to 5.0, which almost never happens with major updates for Verizon’s line of Android phones. As it turns out, being first wasn’t such a bonus for owners of the phone.  (more…)

LG G2 on Verizon Gets Lollipop Today, Your G3 Still Can’t Have It

The LG G2 on Verizon is receiving an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop beginning today. I said “G2″ not “G3.” That was on purpose, because this really is the G2 we are talking about and not the much-newer, less glossy, G3. The update is a big one that is talked about at length in a 6-page document posted by Verizon. We included all six pages below to quench your curiosity.  (more…)

AT&T Galaxy Note 3 Also Appears to be Getting Lollipop Today (Updated)

AT&T’s Galaxy Note 4 may not be the only Note receiving its update to Android 5.0 Lollipop today. According to a couple of our readers, a 1GB update is also rolling out to the Galaxy Note 3 on AT&T that is more than likely a bump to 5.0.1. The update is crawling at the moment, just like the Note 4’s update, so it could be a minute before we know for sure. What else could it be, though?  (more…)

AT&T Galaxy Note 4 (Appears to be) Receiving Update to Lollipop! (Updated: It Is)

AT&T Galaxy Note 4 owners are being treated to the slowest download in history, this morning, one that may very well be Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s like the ultimate tease. At least one reader told me that he is over two hours into his download of this 1.1GB file. As you can see, I was momentarily at 0% and am now hovering around 7%. This is going to be a long one.

I can’t get any clear confirmations on if this is actually Android 5.0, since everyone still seems to be downloading. AT&T also hasn’t updated their support page with official word on the update. So, if you have received this and actually updated, let us know!  (more…)

Sony Starts Rollout of Lollipop to Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact

Sony announced this morning that the official rollout of Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to its Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact has started. The update will begin in the “Nordics and Baltics” before continuing on to the rest of the world in a couple of weeks.

The update is “blending” Lollipop with Sony’s own skin, which means “goodies” are involved. I just hope that really means Sony is ditching their incredibly dated and painful-to-use Android skin. If the first bullet point below that talks of “fresh, streamlined looks” is any indicator of things to come, I may just get my wish. (more…)

T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 3 is Getting Lollipop Today (Updated: This Week)

According to Samsung, the Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile is receiving its update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, today. The update will rollout as build N900TUVUFOB5.

In the update, users will find all sorts of TouchWiz still. In our time with Lollipop on the Galaxy S5, we didn’t find much different from Kit Kat to Android 5.0, other than the notifications on the lock screen, subtle Material Design changes to stock apps, and Smart Lock buried where no normal person would find it.
