While most of the Samsung new flagships are getting ready to be upgraded to the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, there are older or have weaker specs that are barely receiving the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update. One of them is the Galaxy E7, a 1-year old mid-range phablet, which is one of the best selling smartphones. On the other hand, Verizon is following the example of Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T, and it’s finally rolling out the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update to its Galaxy Note 4.
The Galaxy E7 owners in Europe, Asia and in the US are receiving the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update on their smartphones, and according to the change log, this version will bring improved UI animations, general system optimization, security enhancements and improvements to the camera software. The Galaxy E7 was released with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box and Samsung preferred to skip the all previous Lollipop versions (5.0, 5.0.2 and 5.1), upgrading it to version 5.1.1, which is 750 MB in size. This update was already released last summer, in August, for the users living in Russia and India. In case you haven’t received the update yet, you should check if it’s available for your device, by going to Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check for update.
Also, the Galaxy Note 4 sold by Verizon is being upgraded to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and this software version LMY47X.N910VVRU2BOK3, which arrives over the air comes with many changes. First of all, some of the pre-installed Amazon bloatware will be removed, the Knox platform is upgraded and it brings Android for Work support.
In addition, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop comes with a new Material Design (it’s cleaner and has more vivid colors), bug fixes, advanced security and better device sync. The users can transport device settings (wallpaper, format for applications, WiFi connection, location etc.) to another one using the NFC option, and they can continue where they left off on the second device.
