    Since Lollipop 5.0 update on my Samsung S5 i have only problems with it.
    Is it possible to downgrade system to KitKat 4.4.2 that was working fine. When will there be a Lollipop 5.0 upgrade for Samsung S5. Google app do not work and there is NO support for Lollipop 5.0 CRAP problems.
    There was no need to change KitKat 4.4.2 with a Lolli crap that does not work and Google employees are to lazy to solve issuses.
