Updated my G3 to lollipop when Verizon offered the OTA update about a week ago. I used to have a perfectly good device with KK, now it's terrible. I sincerely hope someone at Verizon sees the following issues as not just an inconvenience, but rather sabotage. Thats what lollipop feels like.
1. Significantly shorter battery life ( 5 hrs now vs 14 hrs before update)
2. Camera is very laggy and freezes
3. Taking video is awful, screen freezes then continues then freezes, then stops recording
4. Random restarts
5. OS is very slow ( swiping stutters, apps open slow)
6. Bluetooth cuts out (listening to Pandora was fine before, now there are short skips constantly)
As customers we should not have to research the internet to see if an OTA update is going to ruin our devices. If an update is made available by Verizon, we should know that it's going to work because Verizon is doing their do diligence. This needs to be corrected.
Oh no! I was hoping the issues I have been having would be corrected with this update! I am glad I didn't update when it popped up! It is bad enough right now. I would probably throw it out the window....
I meant I was going to reset the Fitbit and I never got to it. It's working
better today. That's what I mean by variable. Works one minute and not the
next. In the morning yesterday I could not even text. I was trying to check
how someone did after surgery and it kept telling me network not available.
I am ready to get a new battery for my iPhone and be done with this phone.
Today it seems to be doing much better...

My biggest issue now is battery life.
Google Services 17%
Android OS 12%
... and other apps less than 6% each.
I installed a battery saver app (DU Battery Saver) since my last post here and it has helped but I still am getting a third of the battery life I got before the update to Lollipop.
Sheesh....about the only thing I like about this phone is the battery
life.....of course it could be really good right now because it only works
about half the time!

The saga continues...Last night for about 5 minutes I had 4G in my living
room! Then it went back to 3G and finally to 1X where it pretty much
stayed. Right now I have no service at all and only one bar for my phone. I
was going to blame it on the cloud cover but a coworker with a Galaxy Note
has 3G and my boss has Extended 3G on her iPhone 6. I am shutting it off
for the 3rd time to see if it will restore. My coworker with the Galaxy
says she has 4G in Poplar all the time but 3G here in Wolf Point. At this
point I would really just like to have consistent 3G. I am definitely going
to Glasgow on Saturday, if not before. Part of me would really like to know
if it were the same on the east coast but I don't think I have the patience
to way for some sort of a resolution. I really wish I had had the battery
changed in my iphone and not done another contract. Lesson learned!
