Exclusive Final Preview: Android 5.0 Lollipop on Samsung Galaxy S5

Yesterday, we brought you an exclusive preview of the latest test build of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Galaxy S4, and now we’re back with yet another preview, this time for the Galaxy S5, also running on a newer build of Lollipop. Compared to the Galaxy S4, the Galaxy S5′s new Lollipop build hasn’t brought too many changes, except for new icons in Toolbox, which allows quick access to a few functions from anywhere on the phone. However, what’s noticeable on the new build is the performance – the phone feels speedier and smoother now, and even the gallery app, which is generally slow on all Samsung devices, seems to be more optimized.

Again, we aren’t releasing the Lollipop firmware given its not the final version and has bugs. However, you can check out the latest build in action in the video below, and also check out some screenshots right after the video.

Will the status bar icons stay the same or will it have the stock status bar look? It doesn’t really look like android lollipop, looks like a theme has been applied. Samsung has overdone the big header, do you agree? Anyway my question is will they give the status bar a more material look?

I wonder the same, they always mention the SM-G900F, not a single word on the SM-G900H.
Samsung should be banned from selling in the countries they don’t plan to support.

care to expand on the bugs still present.

otherwise it kinda implies your just being knobs and not releasing it.

just my thoughts.

When SM-G900S is goto 5.0??

I guess sammobile has been handcuffed. Ive seen and flashed plenty of unstable releases through the time. But inguess samsung dont find it funny since sammobile has grown so huge.

Its really a shame. If its not meant for everyday use. Atleast just write it. And let it be up to people themselves to dare try it, if they dont know what they are doing. They better learn it.

Beforehand i visited this place so i could get hands on these testbuilds just for the fun of it. But seems irrelevant now. All i can get from this page, is what samsung allows me to get through kies3.

Thats really a shame. Make a disclaimer anout it. And release the software to let the semi geeks try it out, like in the good old days.

Only 5.0 News for S4 S5 and Note 3 but not Alpha and Note 4. I hope this Phones become not latest

The Alpha and Note 4 will probably get it, rest assured. They were just released and are flagships (well the Note 4 is anyway, the Alpha is kind of a flagship). Seems like Sammobile haven’t got any builds for either yet.

Wt? Again RAM is reduced to 1.67 GB…?
When I got SG5 ARM is 1.85, After 200 MB update from SAMSUNG it reduced to 1.75, and now it is 1.67.
I believe for the next update it will reduced to 1 GB..
Common Samsung..

1.67 is available since 4.4.2 update so you don’t know what you’re talking about.
