Samsung reportedly halts Lollipop update for Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 in Norway

Samsung is turning out to be the only smartphone brand other than Motorola to update a number of existing devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop. It has already rolled out the sweetest version of Android to the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy S4, and the Galaxy S5. However, it has reportedly halted the Lollipop update for the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S5 in Norway due to a number of bugs.

One of our regular readers from Norway has pointed out that Samsung pulled the initial Lollipop update (which was rolled out in January) for the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S5 due to a number of bugs, including the one where Contacts app doesn’t work and com.android.phone freezes from time to time. Apparently, Samsung Norway has admitted this on its official Facebook Page, and a lot of users are complaining there about these lingering problems after the update.

Thanks for the tip, Magnus!

It seems like as of an hour ago new 5.0 builds are rolling out to most/all CSCs in Singapore (a few carriers included), which had an older 5.0 build. This could be a sign that the rollout has continued, and hopefully these bugs are fixed with these new releases

I’m using the G900FXXU1BOB7 release and i have seen occasional crash messages pop up with regard to contacts and the screen wake-up issue that has bugged the phone since its first release is back.

The laugh is that i am not trying to access contacts when i receive the error message. it seems to happen when i shut down facefook and bbc news apps neither of which have been allowed access to my contacts.
The wake up issue seems to go if you clear the cache memory but creeps back within a day or two.
it seems to me that the phone does wake up it’s just the screen that says off.
hitting the power button and then waking the phone up also seems to clear it every time but it’s annoying.

Ha, sadly this was also the case with Sammy in Denmark who pulled the plug on the update for SGS 5- contact crashes, phone freezes, battery drain, screen not waking up from standby….

Eagerly awaiting an update…

Lollipop has a lot of bugs because android here’s start from zero, google has changed lollipop way , and samsung need to work hardly to optimize lollipop for s4 not like 4.3 and 4.4.

Theh why Samsung released it like 2 month ago for Russia and India? If those 2 countries not testing the firmware or something, and in the end we all will receive the same lollipop only with delay in several monthses

I can affirm the info about bugs in Norwegian Lollipop for S5, it’s a real pain.. I think thats why they postpones the Note 4 update to Lollipop here too… Somehow it has relevance I think..

The Contacts app keeps giving errors, over and over again. The phone overheats at its max, and the apps, in general, begin to collapse and experiment lag. Worst update ever. Feels like an Alpha or Beta release.

Love these articles where they say all the latest Samsung flagships received the latest update when in reality maybe 1% of them did :). My Note 4 is still on 4.4.4 though I am okay with it. Hope to see polished 5 rather than to be the first and have bugs.
