Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Update – Review

Are you looking for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 update? If yes, then you are in the right place. Samsung supports the Galaxy Note 5 with software patches to cancel security problems. We have to accept that the Nougat update for the device was its last big OS upgrade. You can check the list of tables below. However, the carrier versions of the Note 5 are still receiving monthly security updates, which is what we hope for at this stage. We have mentioned the download link of the update wherever possible. As you can use to install or download an update manually if you can’t take OTA updates. Come let’s take a look:

Software compatible with Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is well over now. That is the reason why the mobile can’t view an update to Oreo either. No question of Samsung launching the Android 9 update for the device. However, the development wasn’t robust for the device. We can’t expect unofficial ROMs such as LineageOS 16 to be available. Or else, Android 9 Pie GSI (Treble) to work with the device.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 came preinstalled with Android Lollipop. In earlier dictates, the device has since received two major OS upgrades. Like Nougat OS or Android Marshmallow.

Also, though at some point T-Mobile ensures that Note 5 would receive Android 8.0 Oreo. LineageOS 15.1 ROM based is available on Android 8.1 Oreo. It is available for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. But it’s unusable as a daily driver.
