    Here's a bit of shocking news this fine Monday afternoon. Verizon is apparently the first US carrier to start rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to their Samsung Galaxy S5. The update is build VRU1BNLC, and will push out in waves, so if you don't get it yet, don't worry. It should be coming down the pike shortly (within the next week or so).

    Sound off and let us know if you are one of the lucky folks to have received this update for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 already!

    Check the source link in the post above yours.

    It's mostly a material design update with some other new features.

    Lucky bums.

    No profiles inside my settings app. Would it be under something else? What's new is advanced calling. Under accounts there are some new things.

    Where have you been? The Gear VR is complicating things.

    Apparently the software for the vr didn't play well with lollipop & they're working on it. We'll be last on the Samsung list, but this thread gives hope that we'll be first in the states on vzw.

    From what I understand, it's a joint effort between Samsung & Oculus.
