    This update ruined my phone:
    This is downgrade not an update. You made my black edition s4 so kiddish, that it embarrasses me to use my phone in public. Everything is having so awkward colors.. Yellow, Orange, Green etc..
    On top of that everytime I open menu, nothing appears up and it takes 10-15 seconds to show the apps..
    I don't why when I plug earphones every now and then it keeps me showing "Earphones connected" as if I can't remember that I am using earphones.
    Sometimes its picks charging and sometimes not...
    Full of bugs..

    I agree with Paul Campbell regarding the roll out of Android Lollipop to Canada!!! Even the Russians get it before we do?? I have been loyal to Samsung for years, including large screen TV, 2 tablets, and the phones!! Time to reconsider my loyalty!! RIDICULOUS!!!

    I'm in Canada with a sgh-i337m and I haven't even seen a sign that it will be updated as SamSucks leaves Canadians to be one of the last updates. When they do update, it's like playing Russian roulette with your phone. I've been faithful to Samsung since my galaxy nexus but will never buy another because their customer service SUCKS! I have installed Pac rom running lollipop 5.0.2 which works flawlessly me. Samsuck has lost another faithful customer.

    I have the Verizon Galaxy S4 LTE, model number SCH-I545. This is the Qualcomm chip version. I have yet to receive an Android 5.0 Lollipop update, but do want one soon. My GS4 has a strange throttling problem in simple and intense games, ever since the KitKat update. The device is not even hot, and gets annoying chops in all games. So I have been waiting for Lollipop to fix this.

    Hello guys! Do you have any ideas if the S4 model I9515 will receive the android 5.0 update? Tyvm for your time.

    OTA update of Galaxy S4 to Lollipop 5.0.1 yesterday (England). Phone seems to work fine BUT - there are none of the lovely well published and advertised Lollipop Wallpapers to be found anywhere on my phone. Seems like I didn't get any!!! Additionally the one widget that I relied on most - the S Planner (Calendar) Agenda widget is no longer available. In the Widgets page there is a "Mini Today " showing my appointments for only the current day only. Also I keep getting a message saying that "an app needs updating" on the lock screen - but no clue as to which app - when I open the message it just takes me to the play store. So there are a few bugs as yet - it seems.

    Updated to lollipop overnight, haven't done a factory reset or anything! Works perfectly, contact list working, music (power amp) playlists working perfectly. I had to clear cache on play store and that's it! It is amazingly fast between screens and apps well done samsung! a great update (international red variant) for the UK

    Just had the 5.0.1 update on my S4 in the UK on o2. Love it.

    If you are going to flash this update or any other update do a full Backup, flash the lollipop OS via Odin and if you are flashing/updating over your old KitKat OS I highly recommend you doing a full factory reset after the lollipop update, wipe everything and setup as a new device to avoid any issues or problems with the new lollipop OS.
