After Google started fixing all the bugs in Android 5.0 Lollipop with an Android 5.1 update, Samsung is facing some similar trouble with the former update on its flagship smartphones.
The Korean tech giant has been busy updating some of its Galaxy smartphones with Google's latest software in various regions but it hit a roadblock in Norway. Samsung announced that it has resumed Lollipop roll-out to Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 smartphones in the region after receiving several complaints about glitches ruining the user experience.
According to a report from YouMobile.org, users of the aforementioned smartphones are facing random freezes and several other problems, including force close of Contacts app, default Phone app and problems with the alarm. After downloading the update, users also reported an overall performance lag, which has left users in dismay.
After realising the problem, Samsung decided it will fix the issues at hand before continuing the roll-out.
"We are aware of the issues some users are experiencing after installing the update Android 5.0 Lollipop and now has stopped the current version. We work full time with a new update that contains solutions to the problems that have been reported to us, including a new solution for silent mode. We hope to send out the update shortly, and will keep you updated on Facebook," Samsung Norway commented.
Other Samsung phones have already started receiving the update in various regions. Such as in the US, users of Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile's network started getting the update. The phablet has already been updated in major European countries like Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Romania, and the UK.
