New & Improved Software
Over time, Samsung and its carrier partners have improved the Galaxy S5 with new software updates.
The Galaxy S5 is currently running Android Lollipop, an update that delivered a new look and tons of new features to the former flagship. It's an update that we love and it's an update that's set to improve on some carriers.
Samsung and select partners have started to roll out Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, a bug fix update that squashes lingering Lollipop problems on the Galaxy S5 and other high-end devices. Android 5.1.1 has helped to stabilize the Galaxy S5's software and that's a big reason why we think right now is still a solid time to buy this phone.
