Samsung Galaxy Note 3 just received the Android 5.0.1 lollipop touch. Unfortunately I am not talking about an official Android OTA roll out, but only about a new custom ROM firmware. CM12 is now out and available for your Note 3, so you can choose to install this software in order to test latest Lollipop built on your own Android based smartphone.
CM12 is currently offered only by those of xda-developers as we don’t have an official release from the CM team. Thus, this CM 12 OS is an unofficial port of Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OS that has been optimized for your Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The best is that the ROM is stable enough for a daily use; there are still minor bugs and lags issued, but users haven’t reported important software issues until now.
CM12 will bring a custom version of Android 5.0.1 Lollipop firmware on your Galaxy Note 3 as the ROM is pre installed with various features that cannot be found on the stock Android market. All these features can be then used for improving the performances of your Android device, so a custom ROM might be perfect for advanced users who are trying to unleash the full potential of their Galaxy Note 3.
