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.

So you have profiles available inside of your Settings app now?

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.

Hey starting a new job has been kicking my booty!....I'll catch up!
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.

I'm not liking the way they changed the battery info. Before, it showed how long you were on the battery ex. 1d 4hrs 10 min etc. Now it shows how long you have left. They should have left it alone. Just saying..

That's a stock Lollipop feature, not just Samsung. Kinda handy to know about how long you have left (my laptop does the same thing), but would be nice if it was an option to toggle between how long you'd been on battery and how long you have left.
