Lollipop updates


A major confusion happened yesterday when UK branch of "Three" carrier tweeted that the Galaxy S4 mini will not be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop update due to Memory limitation, after few hours "ThreeIreland" branch tweeted that the S4 mini update is approved and passed the testing process.

 

Today, we reached out to Samsung to get a clearance about this. Low-end and mid-range users are NOT forgotten by Samsung, the Korean giant is working hard to bring Lollipop love to as many devices as possible, but time is tight.
