Android 5.0.1 Lollipop is finally here officially for the T-Mobile Note 4 SM-N910T!
For those of you who want to get try it out, you can grab the stock firmware and flash with ODIN. If you don’t know how to do this, you can see our tutorial on How to Unroot Galaxy Note 4 with stock firmware! You can grab the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop firmware on our Galaxy Note 4 Stock Firmware page. (or download directly here)
The UI has not changed all that much, actually not much has changed from 4.4.4 KitKat but you will get new Lollipop features like heads-up notifications but the biggest change/improvement is in performance. You can expect near 20-25% improvement in performance with Lollipop over KitKat and this will be noticeably better when playing graphic-intensive games like Asphalt 8. Antutu benchmarks also show a great improvement as I went from my stock 44-46K range to 50-52K range on Antutu.
Android KitKat wasn’t too shabby as the Note 4 has a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor but Lollipop will definitely give you even more performance boost. Overall, Lollipop is a great upgrade for those of you who have been waiting like a dog so definitely give your Note 4 upgrade this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
Note: You will lose root and CWM or TWRP recovery but you can easily re-root using our root tutorial here.
