    This app has just ruined my S5?!

    No silent mode.
    Can no longer unlock phone by having Gear Fit in range of it - why?!
    Awful music integration - Spotify album art stays as lock screen after Spotify has long been fully closed
    Sluggish transitions
    No way to mark what is a sensitive app for lock-screen notifications, it's either Hide or View
    The "Priority" etc. options I've heard banded around that supposedly replace the Silent mode I can't even access
    Battery gets rinsed by it
    When pressing Shutdown the phone just restarts, only way to shutdown is take the battery out!
    Charging is a nightmare, phone constantly disconnects

    Never had any issues with this phone before and now this awful update has come along! Are there any fixes for these, or any way to roll back to Jellybean? I can't believe this was allowed onto people's phones with the amount of bugs in it.

    Welcome to the forums.

    There is a do not disturb in Settings>sound.
    The smart lock feature is in Settings>Security. You do need a lock on the screen in order to set that up, and it can connect to bluetooth devices.

    I'm wondering why so many people jump the ship and abandoning a stable and fast OS like Kitkat AS SOON as a new version is released?? Instead of waiting out the mandatory "beta months/half year" trail n error peroid for all nasty bugs and incompatible issues to get sorted. Beats me anyway!! "If it works great, don't try to fix it" . . . .

    Some people always like to have the latest software, even if they have to compromise.

    Yeah, I guess, but then they should not be complaining so much - if they are prepared to compromise. . . . .

    My bluetooth has been broken ever since I screwed up and updated. Now when I receive a call on a device with bluetooth, the phone alarm and media volumes go to zero and stay there. I have to reboot to fix it. Nexus 5.

    You just nailed it! That's the whole point. People like jumping to the newest thing and complain after they did it. There will always be bugs after a big OS update, and that's a fact. There are videos, reviews and complaints about the new Android version. You have to decide if you want to take the risk. Well ... or just wait until things run smoothly.

    I like that kind of risk and updated to lollipop as soon as I received the notification. Maybe I was lucky, but I'm very happy with that decision. A couple of tweaks and my phone is better than ever.

    I thought differently with my tablet, though. I have a quite old ipad 2. Great device by the way. I decided to stay put and it's still running 6.1. I didn't want to spoil the pleasure of using it, so I missed TWO major updates. And it's going to be that way until the reviews say that 8.x doesn't spoil that pleasure. As simple as that.

    Android is the best mobile platform, by far. But there's a risk. You have to take some decisions, and deal with them. All of us are going to share our problems with a new update and try to find a way to fix them. But talking about how lollipop sucks or it's a disgrace ... well ... I can't understand that.

    Phew! Sorry about this rant.

    Why can't google do all the testing and beta first before releasing it..

    Phone is running slowly, can't get Spotify on my lock screen and the transition between apps or simply pressing the bottom left button on my s5 takes ages. Phone is annoying not broken though.

    Well, in a perfect world that would be ideal of course. But all new OS (MS, Apple, Google etc) have major flaws after new releases. It's just a fact since there is no company that can simulate thousands, or millions, of users way to use the OS. The resources are just not there for this kind of testing. There for the real bug finding starts after release.

    Calling Lollipop a disgrace is a bit over the top. The bugs will get worked out. It seems to work okay on my Nexus VI. It's fast enough and the difference in the look is not terribl. I've had that phone since Friday and have already had one random reboot. I can deal with that as I already know Lollipop is not as stable and bug-free as Kit Kat.

    5.0.2 may be even more improved whenever AT&T sends it out.

    No, a disgrace it is not but I certainly don't see what all the excitement is about either.

    Yar there are some bugs here and there - tho neither my S5 nor Nexus6 had any major issues with Lolipop so far (with my Nexus reseting itself once in 2 weeks) and my bank's mobile app not working (but that's bank app's issue most likely).
    Also from what I read next version might be 5.1, hopefully everything will get neat and stable then

    You need a chromecast, it should let you cast your phone's screen onto the tv/monitor with chromecast plugged in.

    Lollipop is beautiful and efficient. Don't underestimate the importance of this as Android goes toe to toe with IOS. And for a "version 1" it has surprisingly few bugs.

    My first post here, and this is the appropriate place as i think lollipop is a disgrace.

    Having ditched the iphone because of ios7 in favor of galaxy s5 with kitkat os i did have the perfect phone for 5months, great battery life, brilliant browsing experience, everything about the phone / kitkat os was perfect.

    Now that i have updated to lollipop i feel like i have my awful iphone back, i now have a battery that drains so quick, apps that crash, browser that loads when it wants even on wifi, wifi that connects when it wants, and not to mention the new awful color scheme. i just hate lollipop. i know people will say that its just bugs with any new os, but i am paying good money for a phone that i now hate, a phone that was perfect just two days ago.

    I am taking it to a shop in town tomorrow to get it rolled back to kitkat, at the cost of 20quid, money well spent if you ask me...

    There will of course be bugs in all new version of software, especially for major updates. But there is a difference between bugs, and glaring deficiencies. It shouldn't be too much to ask billion-dollar companies with some of the industry's top minds, to put out a product that works appropriately. There's a fine line between bugs you can overlook and consumers should live with, and bugs that are very obvious and detrimental to the consumer. Let's not forget that we pay for these phones, and therefore their operating systems, and if they release an update then it's not up to the customer to wait because it's not good enough.

    I have been a fan of Android for a long time, previous updates have been fine by me. But I just found this latest one absolutely shocking! There's a certain amount you can forgive in terms of "this bug must have slipped through the net", Lollipop surpasses that!

    Hi Golfdriver,

    I currently have a pattern lock on my device and there is no Smart Lock option. On my Gear Fit manager I can't tick the "Auto lock" feature - when I try and tick it it asks me to enter my pattern, confirm my pattern, enter a backup passcode, and then when it's done it goes back to the menu with Auto Lock still unticked.

    Under Security I have no Smart Lock option at all?
