    The week couldn’t have started any better for Galaxy Alpha owners, as Samsung has started rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its first metal-clad Android smartphone. The three major carriers in South Korea are pushing out the update as we write this, and users can grab it off Samsung Kies, over the air, and also through our firmware section.

    The Galaxy Alpha is getting the same version of Lollipop as other existing devices like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5, which is to say it has a somewhat revamped UI with Material Design touches and not the one found on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The Android version is 5.0.2, and you get improved performance, better control over notifications, and, if you’re lucky, increased battery life as well.

    The update is only available in South Korea right now, but it should be heading out globally in the coming weeks. Check out the screenshots below to see how Lollipop looks on the Galaxy Alpha, and let us know your experience on the new version of Android if you have already received the update.
