Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2 exempt from the Lollipop update in the UK

Galaxy Note 2

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 users in the UK will be disappointed to know that the company has decided to skip the Android 5.0 update for the two smartphones. Both smartphones were released in 2012, so it’s not really a surprise to see that the company isn’t sending out the updates to those devices.

This is particularly frustrating for the users considering the fact that devices in other regions are seeing the update, so Samsung clearly has to do some damage control to save itself from the ire of the fans.

Technically speaking, the two handsets do possess the hardware to run Android 5.0, so it’s merely a case of Samsung giving up more than anything else. However, the company will cite hardware incompatibility as one of the issues for this. But that logic goes out the window when we see other variants of the handset getting the update.

But all things considered, users should seek solace in the fact that Samsung has provided all the updates leading up to Android 5.0 for the two smartphones and the plug had to be pulled sometime. Are you one of the frustrated users?
