My phone has been extremely laggy ever since Lollipop 5.0 was pushed on it:( Also, I haven't been able to use the Gear VR since lollipop - it overheats after ~30 seconds:(

WHERE is 5.1.1 which came out MONTHS ago and supposedly fixes these issues???

Come on Verizon - get your act together!

Samsung writes the code for the OS updates. If it isn't finished or gotten certification approval it won't be released until it is ready.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Amazing that people have an excuse for Verizon. Mark, you're not the only one waiting: We're waiting on the 5.1.1 update, Verizon!

You don't understand the real process for how OS updates are handled on any carrier in the USA and not just Verizon Wireless.

WHY does verizon always have to be last though?

I know 5.0.2 took a long time at Verizon - I saw the errors that the other carriers had with 5.0.2 on note 4 - I was hoping verizon took the extra time to fix things.. But no, when it was released, it was just as buggy as the other carrier's version.

I'm so frustrated with Verizon. Very tempted to take me and our 3 phones to t-mobile:(

Verizon isn't always the last carrier to get updates for the devices that work on VZW. I seem to remember a couple of Verizon branded Motorola phones were the first to see a major OS update.

Still waiting here as well. Nothing better than an overpriced paperweight.
