Got a Galaxy Note 3 on Sprint? It’s about to feel like a much newer device thanks to Samsung’s latest Lollipop software, which is now winging its way to you over-the-air and via Samsung’s Kies applications for Mac and PC.

Weighing in at 1GB, this update is the biggest the Galaxy Note 3 has received since it made its debut in September 2013.

It includes a whole host of visual improvements to TouchWiz and Samsung’s own applications, which are loosely based on Google’s Material Design guidelines, plus Lollipop features like Smart Lock, lock screen notifications, and multi-user support.

It also makes significant improvements to performance and battery life, making your Note 3 feel (almost) like a brand new device again.

If you’re a Note 3 user on Sprint, you can check for this update manually from within the software update section inside the Settings app. Bear in mind, however, that it could take a while to reach all users.
