After T-Mobile were the first to begin with the US Lollipop rollout earlier this year, AT&T soon followed, along with other major US carriers. It seems unlikely at this point that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Find out the latest Galaxy Note 3 Android update news below.

Galaxy Note 3 Android 5.1.1 update

There appear to be no plans to update the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to Android 5.1.1. We will keep you update if this changes.

  • I FINALLY recieved ANdroid Lollipop 5.0 on my Note 3, however upon attempting INstall, it threw up errors, So I will do a factory reset and attempt to install again.

  • Pity there's no uk news. Not everybody lives in the usa

  • 5.1.1 has been out for about a month for Note 3 on US Cellular.

  • nice

  • I flashed my Note 3 with Lolipop 31/12/14. It's great with much improved battery life and is a very stable system . Wish I could get Marshmallow on the Note 3. It's a great handset.

  • but this site had previously informed that note3 will get 5.0.1 update...or is this your version of the update news...

    I updated my phone also and I couldn't see any missed calls or messages that I didn't return on the locked screen. It doesn't appear at all on the locked screen. I have to go to call log to see if there are any missed calls or messages.

    • If this happens after the upgrade download an app called NOVA it changes the way your apps are organized and the way everything looks.

  • This update is very bad .. look and feel is very bad and not comfortable for the eye .. phone is sucking all the time .. notifications on the upper row are not going although they were opened .. keyboard color is very bad .. auto complete also is not like before .. This update is very bad .. I think if you don't return to previous one I'll shift to IOS iPhone. . I'll give you 0 from 100 for this update.

  • This update totally sucks! The bluetooth won't stay connected to anything. The widgets keep freezing and the only way to get them working again is to restart the phone. Worst of all the ring volume has got a mind of its own! It moves between max to silent without me touching anything! I use my phone for work and it's really bad when I can't hear clients ringing me or the bluetooth disconnects from the car mid conversation! This phone was the best I have ever had and this update has turned it next to useless overnight!
