The constant lies are getting old. We were promised monthly security updates and I got nothing in September. Other carriers are on 5.1.1 and we are stuck with a broken 5.0.
The software dept knows exactly what they are working on. Is it so much to ask that we know what the next patch will entail? Is vzw even working on restoring the s5 to its former glory or are we supposed to just shell out more money for the s6 and kiss our battery life goodbye? I have 4 more payments and loathing every one of them. I didn't buy the flagship just to watch it sink.
Unfortunately, I've experienced this same issue of VERY slow Android updates on multiple carriers and with various makes of phones. You purchase a premium Android phone time expecting to receive premium and timely support with reasonably quick bug fixes and upgrades only to be disappointed every time.
It is for this reason that for the FIRST time ever I am seriously considering an early upgrade to an IPhone even if it does come at a steep cost. Say what you will about Apple but they do a great job consistently providing a slick and refined OS and deliver quick fixes and updates AND you get your updates at virtually the same time no matter what carrier you are on.
I almost feel dirty about trading in my S5 for for a 6S but I'm sure I'll get over it very quickly.
Verizon is ALWAYS last to update if they even do. They are going to make us wait till Spring 2016 for Marshmallow and skip the whole 5.1.1 update. Verizon is out to nickel and dime you not help you. Verizon customer service has gone downhill fast in the last few years. I remember how amazing they were back in 1999/2000 since then they have only becoming sloppier as a company and stopped caring about customers. Just raping pockets for cash is the game now!
At this point I don't believe they will up date, they keep feeding us the same canned statement, this is to get
Us to update to the s6 if we want the 5.1.1 update
Actually now they will want us to wait till January and get the S7.. the S6 is now doomed like the S5.. hello tomorrow and who are you again past..
Too bad they let my expensive S5 turn into a POS with software.. so now I will get a Nexus 6P on Project Fi..
Everyone has lied they never had any intentions of updating the s5 software, we are just stuck with an outdated system unless you buy a new phone everytime. There is a software update

Ever since my Galaxy S5 was upgraded to 5.0 the battery life has been incredibly bad. I have the original battery from 1 1/2 years ago and another 1 year old and a 3rd a month old and they all drain in a half of a day without much heavy usage. I had better battery life on my galaxy nexus. I have tried some of the battery saving tricks but that is not a solution because why have this phone if you can't use all the features. The battery life before this update was pretty good. I am wondering when will this be fixed in a new update. Turning everything off is not a solution. I may as well get an iPhone if that is the only solution.
