Did you go into settings>back up and restore and disable app restore and app data back up before doing a factory reset?

Yes the factory reset I did were clean  resets  disabling the auto Backup Restore feature before resetting device when I got the promt that lollipop gives you to restore from previous device or new I selected new .... I did a restore why didn't add any apps and just let the pre installed apps update I did a reset ride only allowed to core Google App to update ...even reset it and use a completely different Gmail instead the one I always use,

Depending on how long you've had the device, you can do a manufactures warrant; it's good for 12 months from date of purchase. A factory reset, disabling app restore and back up should have cleared the issues. It's concerning when the OS is listed as the top used app in the battery.

, yes android 5.1.1 started rolling out for the Note 4 in Russia the first week of July and other just hit the Sprint Galaxy Note Edge, a Note 4 variant. It shouldn't be long. But check your Note 4 today, there is a new 5.0.1 update (vru2of1) rolling out OTA today.
