I was wondering if this update was causing the same issues as have been reported on the Galaxy S5 and seems that they are. We have four Note 4 phones that are asking to be updated, but have held off as we do not want the issues that the S5 has. Does anyone know, or can Verizon pipe in and let us know if and when this will be fixed. Also, do we have to install the update to get to 5.01? Thanks!
I'm with you. I'm very disappointed with the lollipop update. It removed functionality, customization and reduced the battery life in my Note 4. Keep putting off that update as long as you can.
Thank You for posting this. I am having the exact same feelings and would like to go back to KitKat as well. You described the issues very well, clear and exact. Hopefully Verizon does something about this ASAP
I completely disagree the battery life to me is a little better in my opinion and the processing speed is also better. As for the notifications you can still have it displayed on your phone but the only difference is it will be on the screen not on the bar where it says Verizon wireless. To do this go to settings then to sounds and notifications and the while locked. There you will have three options. Do not show notifications is basically what it says you will not see notifications in lock screen but will once you unlock it. Next is hide sensitive content, this option will let you know you got a text but not say what the text says or whom it is from it will show text message and say content sensitive. The last one on the top will show you got a message and who it is from but not the message or really depending on your messaging app and the settings for it. If you use the Verizon Meassging app it can be set to show you who it is from and the message if you want that is all up to you though. But for lolipop yes it has some issues but overall I think it is an improvement with errors like any new OS has and will get better. Just be patient.
I am having issues with updates not downloading and finishing the update.
I can still run the apps but i canot get them to update... If i delete and redownload i will lose my game info...
So not happy i have tried both google play and amazon and neither will update. I tried shutting down for a bit and reloading with no improvement.
And while i can deal with the rest.. This is driving me nuts because it the phone keeps trying to update them and sucking wifi/battery to do it.
And clogging up my notification panel as well to tell me about it. Ugh...
I have found one place to get apps not available in google play in 1mobile market and can update your apps for you. You can try that but I have not tried it but do not know if it will help you.
I'm glad to hear that your battery life is better in your opinion, but I have noticed for a fact that my battery is draining much faster than it was on KitKat. I also know exactly what the current notification options are and I don't like them. I don't think anyone is asking "how do I put up with this new annoying notification feature?", what they are saying is "this new notification functionality sucks and I want it to work as it did before."
