Android 5.0 Lollipop update: which phones will get it and when? [updated: floodgates open]

Loie Favre

Android 5.0 Lollipop has started rolling out to the first devices beyond the Nexus and Motorola lines, with the HTC One (M8) getting the sticky goodness along with the Galaxy Note 3, meaning the floodgates are about to open for the HTC One (M7), Galaxy Note 4 and so on. If you're still yet to receive the update, you may be asking yourself "when will my Android device get the Android 5.0 update?" It's a good question, so here's what we currently know about when you can expect the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, no matter which phone you own.

    You all do realize the start of the rollout today is in regards to the Nexus 9 (today is launch day), and not the Nexus 5. I would love to be proven wrong, but not one Nexus 5 has been reported to have received the official OTA. However the first device with Lollipop is today's release of the N9

    Hmm. Not to sure about all Galaxy S5 phone's getting lollipop right now.

    I'm with sprint and yesterday I just got the 4.4.4 update which totally ruined my day.

    Because if they are bothering with sending out 4.4.4 for the S5 when lollipop is already going out to S5 phones it gives me the impression I'm not going to see lollipop on my Sprint S5 this year.

    I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 in May, used it in Europe to write using Polaris (docx) and store photos from the camera (jpg) on the external SD card. I have very few apps. I don't knowingly install apps on the external card. I don't take the card out of the device. It upgraded in October to Kit Kat. I can use File Manager or Polaris to see and open files, but cannot Save back to the card. This device is not listed in the upgrade timetable. When will the upgrade occur? Will it allow me to save plain text documents to the external card?
