At the beginning of this same year 2015, the Korean company Samsung presented in society a new member of the E series . It was the Samsung Galaxy E5 , a smartphone designed for a mid-range that ran as standard through Android 4.4.4 KitKat . It is, as you can see, a version of the Google icons platform that today looks outdated , but could soon be replaced by a more current one. Yes, the news just broke that Samsung has rolled out the update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy E5. What is promised is debt. Not long ago we learned that Samsung had the firm intention of updating to the latest devices that were part of the mid-range.

The latest news we have in this regard comes from Russia , a country where Samsung usually launches all its updates on a trial basis. Once tested operation, data packets set sail for other countries . This is a good formula to check if everything is in order and not to wreak havoc on devices around the world, in case the update led to a serious failure . Be that as it may, we have to indicate that the data package that has been launched for the Samsung Galaxy E5 corresponds to the Android 5.1 Lollipop version and carries the build number  E500HXXU1BOG6. You will see that it is a rather heavy data package: 744 MB , which you will have to download via FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) , that is, without having to connect the device to the computer via cables.

And what are the improvements I can expect from this data package? Well, according to the information we have on the table for now, users of the Samsung Galaxy E5 will start to enjoy many changes in the user interface, with more colors and better performance. They will also find changes in the lock screen or lockscreen , in the top notifications and in the time of battery life. On the other hand, important improvements are expected in the field of safety and in the stability of the equipment .


Before you upgrade, you should be clear that the update comes through the air . This means that you will have to be prepared. We recommend:

1) Have made a backup of all your most important contents and settings. Keep in mind that the update processes are always delicate and that any failure can ruin the operation of the device and all the information contained in it.

2) Check the amount of memory available. You will need to have some capacity at the time of installation and to accommodate all the new data. Check if you have superfluous information installed on the phone and delete it.

3) Fully charge the battery of the Samsung Galaxy E5 or make sure that at the time of installation it is at least 50% of its capacity. If not, you could risk unexpected blackouts.

4) Finally, connect to a WiFi wireless network that can provide stability during the download process.
