Galaxy Android 5.1.1 Release: 7 Things We Learned in August



Galaxy Android 5.1.1 Updates Aren't Created Equal

Galaxy Android 5.1.1 Updates Aren't Created Equal

We also learned that not every Samsung Galaxy Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update is created equal. 

For instance, Optus claims that its Galaxy S6 Android 5.1.1 update won't feature a fix for the Stagefright vulnerability. That's a strange omission and it's not clear when its devices will be getting the patch for the problem.

We've seen most Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Android 5.1.1 updates include a fix for Stagefright but you'll want to reach out to your carrier when your update arrives just to clairify if it's on board or not. 

We've also seen Samsung roll out a new version of Android 5.1.1 with its Galaxy Note 5. The Galaxy Note 5 flagship comes with several new software features that aren't found on older versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note.

It's not clear when or if the Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note 3 will get Galaxy Note 5 software features. Samsung could simply opt to hold them back and keep them as Galaxy Note 5 exclusives to help drive sales in the months ahead.
