samsung-galaxy-s5-review-006Samsung intends to remain on top of the game by jumping aboard the Android 5.0 Lollipop update bandwagon for its slew of smartphones that are compatible with the update. Having said that, it is far from surprising to hear that there will be delays in addition to obstacles along the way, especially when you take into consideration how there are various devices all over the place in different regions. Samsung Norway, for instance, might be in a wee bit of a spot more than normal with its update packages for the Galaxy S5 and older Galaxy S4.


Apparently, while the Android 5.0 Lollipop update was being seeded to both flagships (in their prime), there were several major issues discovered that forced the local Samsung branch to pull the brakes on the Over The Air (OTA) update. This was because those who had already updated their respective smartphones to Android 5.0 Lollipop had complains concerning said update – with bugs that include random freezes of various apps, resulting in the handset becoming more like an expensive paperweight than anything else.

Sluggish behavior is also part of the equation, so those in Norway are certainly going through a rather difficult moment at the time. Hopefully Samsung Norway will be able to sort things out in due time – sooner rather than later.
