Samsung has now starting rolling out the long-awaited Android 5.1.1 update to all International variants of the Galaxy Note 4. The upgrade was initially detected in Poland and bundles all the performance and security improvements you’d expect to find in Lollipop, alongside a patch for the open-source operating system’s Stagefright vulnerability.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a complete changelog for this update just yet, but we do know that the majority of changes are aimed at performance, battery life and overall user experience. Although, some users have encountered a severe lag issue when multitasking after upgrading to the new version.
As is the norm, the update is being rolled out in stages, but if you don’t feel like waiting for a notification confirming that it’s ready for your device to hit your unit, you could always search for the upgrade manually. To do so, open the Settings app, scroll to the bottom and tap on “About Device”, hit “System Updates”, then select “Check for updates”.
Alternatively, you can download the update via Samsung Kies. If you’re not entirely sure how to do that, check out our comprehensive guide.
