T-Mobile rolls out Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Samsung Galaxy S5 in US

Following Verizon Wireless and Sprint, another USA carrier is reportedly rolling out the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS update. As of the moment, T-Mobile is delivering the customized version of the update to Samsung Galaxy S5 handsets. The update is available over-the-air, and as the download necessary to perform it is over 939MB, so it might take a while to finish. As always in these cases, your phone will notify you once the new software is ready to be downloaded and installed. After applying the update, you should be on Android 5.0, build number G900TUVU1DOB1.

After you get the update installed you'll notice some small visual changes, including a new look for notifications and shortcuts on the lockscreen, a fresh multitasking menu, as well as a redesigned notification shade with some brighter colors. The settings menu has switched from dark blue to white — in line with the Note 4's KitKat build, actually — and there are some subtle stylistic changes around the entire phone. As soon as you're booted up you'll want to head into the Play Store as well, as you'll likely have a couple dozen app updates waiting to bring you to the latest version compatible with Lollipop.

If that hasn't happened yet, you can always force it to manually check using the Settings menu, though whether this will actually successfully bring you the update isn't clear. Alternatively, you can use Samsung's Kies desktop software to get your Galaxy S5 its first taste of Lollipop.
