Android 5.0 Lollipop now rolling out to Sprint Galaxy S4

Samsung has certainly done a fairly good job of turning their update image around over the last few months. I remember a time when updates to anything over a year old was a pipe dream and if it did land, it would be for the international variant. Now we are seeing a near weekly push from one carrier or another to one device or another that is putting Android 5.0 Lollipop in the hands of consumers. Today we see word on the Sprint support page for the Samsung Galaxy S4 in regards to updating to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Sprint is a little caddy about what all is included though. We have seen Verizon start pushing Lyft into updates while AT&T is pushing Uber in. Sprints last update to the Galaxy S4 was back in July of 2014 and brought along the HD Voice icon and some Google security patches. With the Lollipop update that is all they list in the description section. Not that it is a bad thing if they just handed over Android 5.0, but I am sure there are apps removed, things fixed and possibly new things included.

If you are still sporting a stock Samsung Galaxy S4 on the Now Network, then be on the lookout for a software update. It will be rolling out in stages as usual, but you can always head into Settings > More > System Update > Update Samsung Software > Check Now. Undoubtedly you will need well over 50% battery life, a solid Wi-Fi connection and plenty of time to kill for the file to download and install. Previous updates on other carriers seemed to land around 1GB. In the end, you should end up Android 5.0 Lollipop with version number L720VPUGOD2.
