The wave of Android 5.0 Lollipop updates is crashing upon us. In a new video from SamMobile, the Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 is shown off against the old KitKat version that’s currently on the Galaxy S4. The Lollipop is only an early test build, but it’s surprisingly fluid and stable. Even with this early build, it’s easy to see that Lollipop provides a drastic performance boost on the Galaxy S4 as well as a huge visual overhaul.
Android 5.0 Lollipop breathes new life into the very dated look of TouchWiz on KitKat. The interface functions in a fairly similar way, albeit with some changes, but the look has been switched over to Material Design. The Lollipop update brings in a fresher, cleaner color scheme, better animations for all sorts of actions, and an altogether tidier UI that makes even TouchWiz look decent. All in all, Android 5.0 Lollipop looks like it’ll be a great update to the Galaxy S 4, and one that will bring the software up to date in terms of design.
What do you think of Lollipop on the Galaxy S 4?
