We remind you that the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OTA update is only available for Galaxy S5 Mini owners from Russia but it is also expected to be released for other parts of the world in the coming weeks. However, if you don’t want to wait to test out the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on your Galaxy S5 Mini, you can also download the firmware file from the internet and manually install it on your device, however, if you install it manually, you will need to delete all your data and you will also need to use an application to back up your important data/files.

Not many users have upgraded their S5 Mini devices to Android Lollipop, however, we didn’t see any negative report until now, so it seems that the new update doesn’t come with major bugs or issues that will annoy you.
