Android 5.1.1 Lollipop comes with many improvements and it is the latest Lollipop OS version, most of the devices that have been updated lately to Android Lollipop are preparing to be updated to the latest Android OS version, which is 6.0 and it is named Marshmallow.

The Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge that are connected to AT&T are now receiving the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. However, if you own an LG G3, you will need to be connected to the Verizon carrier, as this is the carrier that is currently rolling out the Android  Lollipop for your device.

We remind you that the OTA update is released in phases and depending on the region where you’re from, the update will be available sooner or later.

The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop comes with many fixes for the bugs that have been discovered in Android 5.0 Lollipop. At the same time, this update is fixing one of the most dangerous issues that Zimperium (security firm) has discovered, the name of the bug is Stagefright and it was allowing hackers to gain full control of the infected mobile device that was running on Android. The hackers just had to send a MMS containing a malicious code and just waited for the recipients to open it, in order to gain full access of their Android devices.

If you didn’t receive the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge or LG G3, you can also check to see if there is an OTA update available for your device by going to Settings->About Phone->Software Updates and tap on “Check for Updates”.

If you don’t have too much mobile data to spare, we suggest you to connect to a Wi-Fi network before starting the download of the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Also, don’t start the installation if you don’t have at least 60-70% battery left on your Android device, because there is a chance that your mobile device will shutdown during the installation process.
