Exclusive second preview: Android 5.0 on Galaxy S4 brings updated widgets and more

It goes without saying that many Android users who own Samsung devices are anxiously waiting for the company to start releasing the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Unfortunately, Samsung has not confirmed the roadmap up till now so there are no concrete release dates available for Lollipop. What can be said for sure though is that many of the company’s recent devices will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop at some point in the future.

In case you have been wondering what Android 5.0 on the Galaxy S4 looks like, we already provided you with the first ever exclusive preview of Lollipop on this device. Even though the internal build was riddled with bugs we tested it out and gave you an exclusive look at the new optimized TouchWiz UI.

The user interface looks more or less the same as Android 5.0 Lollipop on the Galaxy S5, which we have also exclusively previewed. Samsung brought over the latest flagship’s launcher with My Magazines and Popping Colors lockscreen effect to the Galaxy S4, while the improved TouchWiz also brings an overhaul for the look and feel of proprietary system applications.

This is the second internal build that we have received and it shows some of the improvements that Samsung has made over time. There are updated home screen widgets as well as settings toggles, making it easier for users to access essential options in just a few taps.

We cannot leak the build right now due to safety reasons but that doesn’t stop us from showing off the new build to you on video. Samsung has evidently made improvements to Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Galaxy S4 and it’s bound to get even better as the release draws near.

Why there are two country codes for United Arab Emirates? (XSG and LYS)?
I’ve installed LYS on the phone, battery drains fast and also it heats.

Is this what you call your biggest update to phone? You’re not making it lollipop, you’re making it a clone of galaxy s5 with limited options. This update is ugly and awful from what i see now, youll better do 4.4.4 and optimize/fix things, what you do with this “update” is making fools out of yourselves because this is really pathetic.

AS WE ALL KNOW that all Super AMOLED screen can be burn-in easily as the OLD CRT panels was
so Samsung plz make the status bar hidden on all screen but the home screen for just say 5 second the hide it
i’m always forced to root my cell which is NOTE 3 for install xposed framework and app setting to allow me to force all heavily used application into full screen mode such as twitter, Facebook,tapatalk and even chrome browser there’s no option to enter full screen mode

another thing smart stay get confused when i let my phone on a table screen won’t go off the smart stay think the round chandelier is my eye stair into it so won’t goes off

another thing KNOX basically aim to secure enterprise sensitve data so if you trip Knox you’ll be forbidden from using KNOX and private mode for warranty of course you can provide the authentic user with his Samsung account away to reset those and lose warranty and wipe the previous container data it’s ok for ordinary user who’s wiiling to secure there private memories from the kid or even their wives ;)

plz Samsung consider it
thank you all
