It seems that Verizon has finally released the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OTA update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. This is quite late, as other mobile carriers from the U.S., as Spring has released this update for this device back in August 2015, followed by AT&T and T-Mobile a few months later.
The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update comes with support for Android For Work. In concordance with Verizon, this is a feature that will separate mobile applications from the business applications.
The new update will take out the Amazon Widgets and Amazon App Store that come pre-loaded on the Galaxy Note 4 and it will upgrade the phablet with the new Samsung Knox platform.
At the same time, the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop will also fix many issues and bugs that are found on the Galaxy Note 4, but it will also improve the performance and the security of the phablet.
The Galaxy Note 4 users that have their phablet connected to Verizon and want to install the newest firmware handset should be aware about some things while performing the update on it. First of all, we suggest you to connect to a Wi-Fi network or have a fast Verizon wireless network data connection in order to download the files that are needed for the update process. At the same time, we suggest you to have at least 80% battery left, to prevent your mobile device from shutting down in the middle of the update.
Keep in mind that the update is over-the-air and you can check if the files are ready for download by going to your phablet’s Settings->About Device and select “Software Update”.
Once the download is complete, you will see that the update will start installing on your Galaxy Note 4. Please be patient, because it will take a while until the update will finish installing and once this happens, your phablet will automatically reboot.
HINT: When the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will boot for the first time on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop it will take longer as usual, so don’t worry if you see it loading for a few minutes.
