Specifically, Sprint on Thursday released Android 5.0 builds for the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M7, while the HTC One M8, including the Harman Kardon version, and the LG G3 are supposed to get their Lollipop updates on February 13th and February 16th, respectively.

Galaxy S5 and HTC One M7 owners can already grab their respective Lollipop updates, which should be available as over-the-air (OTA) downloads. Lollipop brings over several interesting features, including Google’s new Material Design interface and interactive notifications. Android fans who are looking to see what Android 5.0 has to offer on the Galaxy S5 can check out this video.
