It is one of the most important updates that the Google operating system has received in recent times. So it is not surprising that the owners of the main devices, both mobile phones and tablets, are waiting for it like May water. We are referring, of course, to Android 5.0 Lollipop : a data package that has become a true renewal for users who already tried Android KitKat , an earlier version. Just a few weeks ago, the Korean company Samsung has already launched the update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for the 8.4 and 10.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Now you have just started rolling out the same data package for the 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 . It seems, luckily, that the update will be available for both the WiFi version of the tablet, and for the LTE edition .
We are facing a very important update. If you have a 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 you should know that after installing it you will be able to enjoy the following improvements: a completely renewed user interface thanks to Material Design , a design layer that includes lighter backgrounds, more vivid colors and in generally, it has a much more agile operation. In the section on benefits, users of this tablet will also benefit from a smarter notification system , tools for quick configuration and even more efficient energy management. This same data package will offer improvements in performance, as well as in security . It is possible, finally, thatSamsung makes major changes to TouchWiz , the design layer that is commonly incorporated into all Android devices in order to personalize them. In this case, the interface would be completely adapted to Material Design , so its operation would also be streamlined.
The update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop has started to reach this tablet via FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) , so it will not be necessary to connect the device with cables to your computer. To update the equipment, we recommend that you do the following:
1) In theory, before installing the update you should have received a notification to indicate that it is now available. If not, you can also check it yourself manually by going to Settings> General> System updates> Update now .
2) If the data package is already available, we recommend doing some prior arrangements. The first and most important, check if you have enough space to store the update . Next, make a backup of all the most important content and settings.
3) When the update is ready, you will need to connect to a wireless WiFi network . It is essential to ensure the stability of the download and to avoid excessive data consumption.
4) Finally, remember to have the equipment's battery fully charged . It would be interesting if it was at its maximum capacity or, failing that, at 50% .
Considering that the update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop has already started to arrive on the 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 , it is most likely that the data package can also be extended to the same generation of 7 and 8 equipment inches .
