Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is one of the most popular Samsung phone. It is also among the few phone which helped Samsung reach at the top. Unfortunately, the support for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has ended officially. Samsung Galaxy Note II won’t be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop update due to software issues.
The flagship phablet of 2012, the Samsung Galaxy Note II along with Samsung Galaxy S3 won’t be getting the Android 5.0 update. The flagship phone released later will be getting the update. The confirmed list of Samsung phones that will be getting Android 5.0 update are as follows:
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy Grand 2
- Samsung Galaxy Alpha
Will Samsung Galaxy Note 2 get Android Lollipop 5.0 Update was the biggest question for Note 2 users. Samsung supported Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for a little more than 2 years which is not bad at all. Still, since LG Nexus 4 is still getting the Android 5.0 update and it runs smoothly, we had hoped Samsung to continue support. Samsung says the processor isn’t good enough for Android 5.0 Lollipop but that isn’t just justifiable especially since Android 5.0 features even better memory and resource manager.
