Android Lollipop

So it Looks like owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2, in the UK, will not be receiving an update to Android 5.1 Lollipop. Instead, those devices will forever remain on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

Samsung’s UK Twitter account made the announcement on Saturday, in response to a question from a concerned user. While this isn’t the most surprising of news, it could be seen as a grace, given all the issues surrounding the Lollipop update.

Not that we would assume this would happen, however it would be better to stay back on KitKat than to deal with a slew of issues if the Lollipop update were to come.

The Galaxy S3 was released back in May of 2012, and the Galaxy Note 2 was released in October of 2012. So it is probably for the best, that these devices don’t receive the update to Lollipop, since newer devices like the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6 are still being plagued with issues.
