General Lollipop 5.02 for the Tab S 10.5 now available.

Just got done downloading Lollipop 5.02 on my Tab S 10.5.
It's 930+ mb file.

Downloading it now.

That's small, 4.4.2 was 1.6GB. I'm still waiting for an Australian version to show up, same as my Note 4 (N910G), seems Australia gets everything last, they must consider us second class citizens or something.

BTW: How does it seem so far ?

Seems to preform well, but I did not have any performance problems with KitKat.

I like the notifications on the lock screen.

I found the Smart Lock settings and set up work and home as trusted places, but it is still locking for me at work. Not sure what I am missing.

I don't like that the sound settings are now gone from the long press of the power button. I used that to go into vibrate mode before meetings.

The fingerprint reader seems a little better. It is not getting as many "not recognized" as before.

I use Nova, but I switched to TW to see if there were any changes. You can now turn off the "My magazine" home screen. I'm still going to use Nova because I like being able to have more icons and use the entire screen.

Yeah, I have it (Lollipop) on my other Note 4 (N910K), I disabled the lockscreen notifications due to privacy concerns, doesn't matter on a tablet near as much as it rarely goes public, so I could see them being handy for it.

The main issue I have with Touchwiz is the wasted space, it'd be nice if they got the hint and made the layout grid configurable.

I got the Smart Lock working for work. This thread had the work around. If you add a second trusted location for the same place it works. I now have two locations for work that are a few feet apart. Neither one works by itself, but it works fine with both of them in.

Yes it was 930.55MB and we'll worth it; however, I hve noticed since the successful download of lollipop 5.0.2 on my tab s the lite menu & back buttons no longer light up during usage. They were working perfectly before the download...iis anyone else experiencing this issue also??? Plz enlightened me

They are working fine for me. Go to settings/device and look at your "Touch key light duration" setting. Maybe changing that and then changing it back will help.

Thx a lot! I was able to solve the problem @ hand on my on. It was on power saving mode, which shutdown both the back & menu lights. I appreciate your attempting to solve my issue tho. Hve a gr8 day!!!

#19 Disel Vale, Apr 23, 2015
Check it. It updated 2 hours ago when I did, although it is set to check automagically.
#20 Kaat72, Apr 23, 2015
My Lolipop update has been here "waiting" for at least a month now but I've been hesitant to install it bc of so many problems I've read about with OTHER devices.
Any info/opinions out there about how it's working with the Tab-S 10.5 and if I should go ahead and finally update it? The update was "forced" on my GS-5 and it's running fine but I just wanted some info/opinions before I CHOOSE to install it on my Tab-S
Thanks in advance, JOE

Since Iv'e updated to Lollipop on my Tab S 10.5, I have not personally had any problems with my Tablet. Battery life seems the same. Also seems snappier when scrolling from screen to screen. No problems with any apps. I also wiped cache partition after the update completed.
#22 gizmo72163, May 28, 2015
My tablet has also worked fine since the update.
#23 KenjiSpencer, May 28, 2015
We're still waiting for the update in Oz, damn they're slow. Pretty sure we were the last on the Note 4 (N910G) cycle too.
#24 rastus26, May 29, 2015
The same here on all points, including wiping the cache after the update completed.
