In Ireland, have a Galaxy S5, network is O2, yesterday Tue 27 Jan got software upgrade to install Lollipop Android 5.0. Install it and everything went ok. On checking online what new features Lollipop has some of them are not on my phone. In settings Battery Saver has no edit options and it should and no flashlight in settings. Any help?

Yeah, there are a couple of known issues with this on the S5 with O2.

I think we'll have to wait for a further update to either 5.01/5.02.

Many post installation issues on the S5 can be solved by clearing the cache partition

Power off your smartphone Press and hold "Volume up", "Home" and "Power" at the same time After the phone vibrates, release the "Power" button but continue to hold "Volume Up" and "home" Once the "Android System Recovery" screen appears, release all the hardware buttons Using the "Volume Down" button, navigate to and highlight "wipe cache partition" Press "Power" to select the option Once the cache partition has been wiped, "Reboot System Now" should be highlighted Press the "Power" key to reboot your device

Worth a try.

You need an app for flashlight and there are is no Battery Saving in Lollipop. Power saving there is and the options will be available.

Flashlight is in widgets; it's called Torch.
