A video tour of Android Lollipop on Samsung’s Galaxy S5

Published Feb 3rd, 2015 9:05AM EST

As we reported on Monday, Android Lollipop has finally begun rolling out to Galaxy S5 handsets in the United States. Verizon Wireless subscribers with Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone are the first S5 owners in the U.S. to gain access to the new Android update, which features a number of great changes including speed improvements, better battery life and a new TouchWiz interface based on Google’s Material Design guidelines.

For Galaxy S5 users on other U.S. wireless carriers, the wait continues. This is precious little consolation if you’re stuck on KitKat, but a new video tour of Lollipop on the Galaxy S5 will at least give you a good taste of what you’re in store for.

DON’T MISS: Apple isn’t even Samsung’s biggest nightmare

We have seen videos of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Galaxy S5 for months now, since long before the update was actually released to the public in any market. Now that the release version is finally beginning to trickle out, however, it’s time to revisit the new software.

Droid Life recorded a lengthy video that gives users a complete walkthrough of all the new features in Samsung’s version of Android 5.0 Lollipop. The video is more than 9 minutes long, and it does a great job of hitting all of the key points and showing users just how different Lollipop is on the Galaxy S5 compared to pure Android phones like the Nexus 6.

The full video is embedded below.
