    Colors should not make you want to scream. Did you get shot? Stabbed? Stub your toe? If not, relax. It's a phone, updated by Google's Material Design standards.

    So far so good. Don't like the white Google search box or background in the app drawer. Also don't like they I have to use the bottom multitab button in chrome to look at my browser windows. Where did they button go from within chrome
    This is an option that can be changed. Set merged apps to "Off".

    Is anyone noticing their KitKat status bar burnt in? Not really sure how, since it was black and those pixels wouldn't have been on, but it's still mildly annoying

    That is screen burn in that can happen on amoled displays. I had a severe case of it on an old Galaxy S3 that I wasn't able to remedy. It happens when you have the screen on for long periods in the same orientation. On my S3, I have a bright strip down the right side of the display from it being in landscape mode turned 90° to the left. Best way I have seen to prevent it is to mix it up and rotate 90° the opposite way from how you normally do. There are apps that will flash different colors on the screen to try and bring it out of it, but if it's too far along, there's probably no fix.

    Here's to hoping this means Maxx/Ultra will soon follow suit? (fingers crossed)
    Not until the first gen Moto X for Verizon gets Lollipop, IMO.

    Update is live in my area, Oklahoma. Downloading now. Attachment 184451

    Location is irrelevant. During the Push phase, you could have two DROID TURBOs next to each other and one could get the update while ther other couldn't.

    Second this downloading now. In Louisiana.

    That's going into Verizon lab test period next week. Hopefully that means all is good and the X gets it for the end of July.

    By the time my Droid Maxx gets it I'll probably be upgrade-eligible (Aug 20 for me), I'm sorry to say...

    More like nausea for me. I've hated the flattened bright colors ever since Google announced the material design standards.
    It's an unpopular opinion, I know.
    I do like the animations and the smoothness, and running nova launcher with custom icons helps with some of the comic book appearance. Except for the notification tray.
    I like that textra lets me pick some of the colors. I wish those options were available for everything.

    Is it me, or is the battery life after the update incredible? Looks like the update did wonders for the battery. For the first time since I purchased the phone on launch day in late October, I think the Turbo rivals the Maxx in battery life.

    It should not be incredible right away. I think the OS needs to settle first. If anything, it should be worse for a few days, but that is just from my experience.

    Battery life could possibly be worse for the first few days since you'll probably be using it a lot more.

    Does anyone else notice horrendous lte speeds?
    I did at first. It was about 1/10th what it normally is. Then it just fixed itself. I did absolutely nothing(not even a reboot) and now its actually a little faster then it was before. I don't know what caused it or fixed it but its great now.

    my thoughts so far...I love this update. Yes kitkat was fine but I am the type that loves having the most up to date version with all the newest features and themes. The only things I am not liking:

    - I was really hoping to use manual camera which requires lollipop for its RAW capabilities, but I bought it and had to get the refund because our phone isnt supported.

    Now the more serious ones

    -its kind of annoying how they took away the power widget and made it so you cant one click enable GPS. I turn it on when I need it and off when I dont. So by clicking GPS on I have to go into the settings every time to turn on the low power GPS so it doesnt use the full GPS, kind of annoying because it takes more time than it should

    -also I wish they kept the lock screen widgets. I used them for the widgets I need to get at quick like flashlight and google play music search. Again now it takes alot longer to access functions that should be quick.

    Other than that I am loving lollipop! I just wish that you could enable the google account lock without having to refresh the whole phone. I dont want to have to wipe my phone to get that security feature as bad as I want it

    I'm sure this was tested but I have to ask, so my turbo was at 10%, I plugged in my turbo charger and it didn't say "turbo charging" just charging. It seems to have given me a good charge to 50% in 20 min but yeah, if anyone else is under 20% let me know if you get "turbo charging" or not.

    It is a bit garish, isn't it? Haven't done the update on Turbo but have had Lollipop on my Nexus 7(2013) for a couple of months. With the animations that occur with swipes was half expecting a "swhoosh" sound every time I swipe.

    Download power toggles

    tried that, I appreciate it though. Lollipop actually disabled the one click GPS switching. Any power toggle app you download will only enable full GPS and disable it. It wont provide a simple and quick way to switch to low power GPS.


    Also something interesting I noticed about the battery stats,
    each one now says the percent of what has drained that the app used.

    For example my phone is at 90% battery right now
    -google services 2%
    -screen 1%
    -android os 1%
    -cell standby 1%
    -google app 1%

    kit kat and before would show the percentage of the 10% used, not the portion of the 10%

    So is anyone else getting the Google Hangouts crashed error (or similar) when it isn't even installed? I could reinstall and reinstall I guess but it is annoying. Of course it has quit working -- it isn't supposed to work by design!

    I haven't gotten the nerve to factory reset yet knowing I'd have to redownload everything and reset my phone how I like it but I may have to as my keyboard issue still exists.

    My phone bricked with the lollipop update. I am typing this from my old Samsung Galaxy S3 in the parking lot of the Lafayette, LA Verizon store. They ordered me a warranty replacement phone that will be here Friday.
