Samsung brings back the mute button in latest Galaxy S5 software update

Samsung has released a post-Lollipop update for the Galaxy S5, re-introducing the silent mode (or rather, the mute button). It's a feature that was missed by many once updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop. As reported by SamMobile, the G900F variant of the Galaxy S5 is currently receiving the build (G900FXXU1BOB7) in the UK. The mute button has been placed among quick settings, just below the notifications tray.

We expect to see the update roll out to other snapdragon-powered Galaxy S5 owners across Europe in the near future. Be sure to check for updates in the settings area, should you reside in the UK with the affected handset. Fully updated? If so, do let us know how the Lollipop update is treating you.
