Samsung rolls out Lollipop for the Galaxy Alpha in France

Just yesterday we reported that Samsung had started rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy Alpha in South Korea. Most major carriers in the country rolled out said update to Galaxy Alpha owners on their networks yesterday. We also said that this means Samsung would soon be rolling out Lollipop for this device in other markets across the globe, and it hasn’t taken too long for the company to get the ball rolling on this.

Today Samsung has released Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Galaxy Alpha in France. The roll out started this morning, as confirmed by Samsung France’s official Twitter account. It shouldn’t take too long for this update to go live for all Galaxy Alpha owners in the country. The update brings loads of new features for the device aside from an overhauled user interface, performance improvements and overall system enhancements. It comes in at just under 1GB and Galaxy Alpha owners will be wise to connect to a Wi-Fi network before they start downloading it.

Lollipop for Galaxy A7 India.. How can samsung be so careless on its customers.. Come on push that update button.. Come on..

Samsung leaked the info about this A7 update during FEB-15, even in May-15 the lollipop update is yet to be pushed.. Come on you fellas.. Don’t be so such a losers ..

Look at Apple .. Even from the smallest to any major update is rolled over all thru the globe in matter of minutes.. Such an marvelous job by APPLE

Last night I installed on my Galaxy Alpha Android Lollipop before installing the battery had 80%. Today I have 33%. Since the installation of lapsing 12H. Phone sail fast, but when you use the WI FI battery fairly quickly running out. I changed the advanced settings WI FI and settled down or the battery does not run quite as fast as before.

@QASJAMIL If you want to revert to 4.4.4 Kitkat, you need to download the firmware from the site’s G850F archive. Or you could just reinstall the firmware. That is an unusual problem you have.

After updating my alpha smg850f via odin to 5.0.2 (XEF) my left soft key has stopped working. Is it only with me or somebody else is also facing this same problem? And how can I downgrade my firmware to 4.4.4 so that I can use my left soft key again or any possible solution for my problem. Please help

Samsung when u update lollipop firmware for galaxy note 4 sm-n910c saudi arabia csc? Its too late very disapointed buying samsung note 4 f***

backup data (Kies 3), wipe data & factory reset, apply Kit Kat 4.4.4 for XEF (last issued in jan 2015) with Odin, then again wipe data & factory reset, open phone, go to settings > about phone > check updates – voila, instantly starts downloading OTA of about 849 Mb (be sure you have about 60% battery minimum), after instal and initial settings do restore initial data (from Kies) – everything smooth, perfect! nothing goes wrong, on the contrary so give it a try!

…and yes, you don’t need to be rooted and procedure does not trip the Knox counter since everything is stock!
