N910F (Germany) was just released. Hopefully it won't be too far away after all.

I had a glass protector from Noel Leeming (can't remember brand) and it was really nice (feel and clarity) but did not seal around the edges. There was no rough edge feeling at all, but there was an opaque few mm all the way round the screen. I dropped my Note recently (landed face down) and the glass broke but not the screen so I have since discarded it and returned to a standard protector. Would be interested in any recommendations for glass brands that do seal right to the edges (I assume the curved Note screen is a challenge).

I tried one on my note 4 and got crap accumulating in the little gap starting to lift it off. The ones I have seen that dont do that are vastly smaller than the screen and only go slightly past the actual oled display and look a bit dicky.

I run an iLoome protector on my Note 3, it's an awesome protector, it only ever seperates (and only in the corners) if I leave the phone screen up in direct sunlight.

I also run a UAG cover around the phone as well and that protects any dust / dirt getting under the protector.

Excellent instructions for installation, was quite easy.

The note 3 has flat glass. The 4 has a curve away at the edge like the aweful HTC one X did. Makes screenprotectors impossible.

Have Vodafone received the update yet? Or are Samsung ensuring I don't buy another product in the future?

I have the SM-N910U model and according to Sammobile, none of them are on Android 5 yet. Check here: http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-N910U/ or check here for your specific model http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/. It won't tell you if Vodafone has recieved, or approved the update and when it will hit Samsung servers, but at least you can decide how jealous/annoyed you can be if other territories have it and you don't. I'm pretty sure above someone said Voda hasn't even recieved the Note 4 Android 5 firmware for testing yet... but a post to their Community page might get a fresh answer on that.

I expect we'll see it soon. There are reports of people on US models starting to get updated.

Not yet. I understand we are expecting to receive a software build for testing in the next two weeks.
