How to update your Samsung Galaxy S5 to the latest available official Android Os software version.
To get the most from your cell phone, it is advisable to make sure that the software it is running is always up to date.
This is a process that happens automatically unless you have disabled it on your phone. Mind you this is requires you device to be connected to Wi-Fi. If for some reason you can’t or won’t connect your phone wirelessly, it is nice to know that you can check for updates on your computer.
If you can connect your phone directly to a Wi-Fi connection there is a better way of updating your phone. Check out our Galaxy S5 update tutorial, for details on how to do this.
Before you start, make sure that you have a computer connected to the internet and that you have the USB cable required to connect your phone to the computer.
