You can update your Galaxy S5 using two methods: Kies or Samsung’s FOTA (Firmware-Over-The-Air) service. To update your device via Kies, connect your device to your computer and use Samsung Kies 3. If you don’t like wires and stuff, you can use the FOTA method. To download and install the firmware via FOTA, go to settings > system > about device > software update > update.

What about the LG G3?

The Lollipop update for that has started to roll out at a slow pace. Try and manually search for the update on your phone.
On my lg g3 I have android 5 already.
nothing ota for o2 branded S5 firmware
nothing ota for o2 branded S5 firmware

This will be SIM free phones only for the moment, no branded phones as the networks will not have done their 'tests' to add their modifications.
Mine is sim free and no updates available OTA :\

EDIT:- HOWEVER after installing Samsung Kies 3 on my PC lollipop is now downloading :)

Is "write to sd" back with Lollipop?
My S5 is SIM free and there are no updates available OTA.
Just upgraded my O2 S5 using Kies.
fingers crossed for the note 4
I have the note 4 as well. Does anyone know the official date it will be released?
No luck ota, but updating on kies okay.
Been waiting for this. Thanks
Just updated OTA on the G3.

Write to SD is still missing.

Why is every update a backward step?
What is exactly write to SD, as i can copy to my SD card anything, or am i misunderstanding ? cheers, oh and what are your thoughts on Lollipop, as i have seen a few youtube videos, and i actually like the look of my 4.4.2 better.
