Samsung Galaxy S5 receives Lollipop Update in Malaysia

Posted:  January 3, 2015   By:    18 comments   


Samsung is now rolling out its latest Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Galaxy S5 users in Malaysia. This brings the latest usability and performance updates along with its updated TouchWiz UI. The new Lollipop treat was released starting in Poland last month and finally it has arrived in our region.

At time of writing, the update isn’t available through OTA (Over The Air), so you’ll need to download it on a desktop using Samsung Kies 3, which you can download here. After Kies has been installed, just plug in your Galaxy S5 and it should prompt that a new software version is now available (PDA NL3 / CSC: NL3 / Phone: NL1). Take note that you’ll need about 3GB of free space and a full battery charge before you can proceed with the update.

According to the notes, opening apps for the first time after the upgrade may appear to be sluggish as there’s an initial optimisation process for each app. They have also mentioned that some apps installed previously would need to be updated to the latest version for full Lollipop compatibility. In addition, Samsung also highlights that the device available memory would be reduced by at least 950MB.

We would also recommend users to perform a back up of your essential files, photos and videos just in case things go wrong. Thanks @LienWee for the heads up!

Does it overcome Kitkat's shortcoming of not allowing saving apps direct to SD card?


    Under Apps Management, it does allow you to move to SD card depending on Application.


Hopefully the Application developers soon provide update to enable the transfer of whole app (including the large OBB file which currently must stay in the internal memory for some game) to SD card. Otherwise, S5 may still look unattractive as compared to Note 3 on the point of internal memory limitation even with the Android L update. Wonder S5 can (and for how long) still perform at its top form given almost half of its internal memory has been consumed upfront by the Samsung bloatware & the Android L update.


Tried the L on my S5, laggy as shit. Don't update to L until the new updates fix the bugs. For the time being, i recommend you guys stays with KitKat.


had to agree with xabitory. laggy, slow multitasker..and what annoying me the most, I can't use the clipboard!!!


Kies 3 from my computer windows xp… do not show any update to lollipop..
can anyone help???


The Lollipop in S5 does not have Screen Pinning, Guest Mode, Multi User Mode among other native Android 5 implementations… Why is this so?


    Hear, hear. I was totally looking forward to having multiple user accounts like OPPO 7. Guess I gotta wait until the next update (which may or may not include the full Lollipop user interphase), or just buy myself an OPPO and spare myself the wait.


i cant install the update!!
i´ve the Galaxy S5 SM-G900F, kies3 shows the update from PDA:NI4 / CSC:NI1 / PHONE:NG8 (XME) To: PDA:NL3 / CSC:NL3 / PHONE:NL1 (XME)
But after setting up the update occurs an error: "the server is not availabe"


mine said it doesn't support for SM-G900F


New version of Lollipop update has arrived via Kies. Check it out.


Hi. Any idea when is 5.01 going to be released? Thanks.


What I hate the most is the fact that they took off the mute functionality. It has been replaced with the interruption function which I personally find annoying. I have read that they have put it back in 5.01 which is to be released soon. (Hopefully )
