No Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 in the UK

Galaxy Note 2 owners across the globe have been anxiously waiting to receive the Lollipop update on their handset and conflicting information about the status of this update has created a lot of confusion, Samsung has not come out with a strong statement that applies to all markets and settles once and for all whether or not the Galaxy Note 2 will receive the Lollipop update. Though if the company’s UK arm is to be believed then users in the United Kingdom will not be getting said update.

Responding to a query on Twitter the official Samsung Mobile UK account revealed that the Galaxy Note 2 and even the Galaxy S3 won’t receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the country. No reason has been provided for this decision, but at least now users in the UK know that the only way to get Lollipop is to change their handset. Bear in mind though that in the case of the Galaxy Note 2 this doesn’t mean that the device won’t receive Lollipop elsewhere as Samsung Poland and Finland have reiterated multiple times that Galaxy Note 2 owners in their markets will certainly get Lollipop at some point in the future.

Why is this news? If T-Mobile users can’t get Kit Kat for the Note 2 (T889), what makes anyone think Lollipop will ever be available? I gave up on waiting. I now have a new phone and will never buy another Samsung phone due to lack of updates. Move on people. Samsung has, (with your money).

My S3 only ever got Android 4.3, never even had KitKat. I had the UK BTU I9300 model and updates were stopped in November 2013, despite other countries getting several after this date

This is a shame Samsung.Always we promise things but never live up to what you say. You made a post saying that Android 5.1.1 would come to the Samsung Galaxy S5 in early June. What happens? We are July 6 and still nothing: / and not even ye have bothered to explain or because of this delay. No communication with your customers because we have spent our money (and not a little) your buying a product and then you give a bad deal. Such as a Galaxy Grand Prime low end this in 5.1.1 and 5.0.1 Note 4 or even… Read more »

Android 5 was released only 15 months after the Galaxy Note II was replaced. We know it will run Lollipop as there are several custom roms available, so this is Samsung’s way of thanking its loyal customers… by withdrawing support. Goodbye Samsung.

” users in the UK know that the only way to get Lollipop is to change their handset”… Or they could just go down the custom route and install CM12. I’ve even had CM12 running on an old Note N7000. There are plenty of enthusiasts out there willing to keep these older devices alive.
