    If you are rooted, you won't get the update unless you unroot, or flash a custom stock ROM, given that you have a custom recovery.

    I had the opportunity to try a Nexus 6 preloaded with Lollipop 5.0.2 and it was very nice - quick and responsive. I think the issue here is that the OTA 'upgrade' of Lollipop (5, 5.0.1, 5.0.2) is nowhere near as compatible to earlier Nexus devices as it is supposed to be. Upgrading to Lollipop seems to be almost universally disappointing on 'older' devices. My N7 works with 5.0.2, but its hardly the slick product it once was, 'even' after a Factory Reset - which no user should need to do to make a OS work.

    IIABDFI (If It Ain't Broke...) seems to apply here. Stick with what you've got if it serves you well, I'd say.

    It depends on the device. Nexus devices it is possible. Samsung ones, most likely not, nor the 2013 Moto X.

    What needs to be removed from the UI to affect that?

    I plan to stay away from Lollipop as well when it's released for the Note 4 (OTA updater has been disabled) since it's rock solid on its original release of Kit Kat (4.4.4). If it ain't broke....

    From my experience, I've found the original release software a device comes with tends to be the most stable and reliable as it's had time to mature with Google releasing numerous iterations with bug fixes and the OEM has also had the most time to fully test that latest build to work well with the design of the device. What's also at play is the fact installing OS updates on top of existing software is messy by nature compared to a full stock ROM image that was loaded onto the device at the factory. In the end, I'm content to wait for a newer version of Android when I get a new device (ex. Note 5).

    Wrong, If its rooted and still using the stock UI without you never going in to command prompt to remove anything. Its going to update 100%. Now when it comes to someone updating and keeping root.50/50..

    Don't get the update. It's a piece of **** and needs a lot of fixing. You lose a lot of you customizable features on you s5 phone. And the screens look like ****, battery drains rapidly, and we'll it over all sucks.
