    1GB of download size. Downloading right now.

    Android 5.0.2. That's about the only thing I noticed so far.

    Don't expect miracles. It will take a few days to judge the battery life.

    I click the software update by mistake and it started to donwload the lollipop updatw. I paused it at 14% bc i dnt wanna update it. Do you think right now if I factory reset my fone it will stop the updating proces?

    It took quite a while to download the whole thing (1GB in size). Once it downloaded, it will ask you whether to apply the update or postpone it. I don't know how many times it will prompt you for applying the update before it just go ahead applying it.

    Anyone else experience the same issue?

    Make sure you at least do a cache wipe in Recovery if not a FDR.

    Unfortunately, I've already done both. No success.

    This device now has limited functionality; I'm pretty much at the mercy of AT&T to release an update or swap the phone.

    This is precisely the reason I do not use carrier devices as my primary units. What a headache.

    Unfortunately, neither of those things worked. Did them three times each. The phone now has limited functionality; I'm probably at the mercy of AT&T releasing another update.

    If anyone has any other ideas, I'm all ears.

    Get a warranty replacement from AT&T device center. This is no fault of yours. This is the only good thing buying a carrier branded phone: you get 1-year warranty service directly from AT&T, either via mail exchange or local device center.

    Yeah, I may have to go that route. I really wanted to try to fix it, but, this looks like a fool's errand.

    It is a Samsung. No surprise there. Half of my Samsung purchases don't even work out of box.

    Back on topic. I noticed that now I can use finger print as my screen unlock. Previously, due to my work place exchange policy, it locks down available options for screen unlock. I can only use PIN or password IIRC. Now I can use finger print but it requires me to do so every time I unlock the screen which is annoying. On top of that, half of the lock screen is the stupid keyboard for typing unlock password in case finger print doesn't work. That removes almost all the info that used to occupy the lock screen.

    With PIN unlock, it only requires PIN when idle after a certain time period.

    I downloaded the Lollipop update this morning and took about 1.5 hours! I restarted my phone after the download was complete. Seems to be running pretty smooth. The only issue I'm having is bluetooth compatibility in the car (keeps connecting-disconnecting-connecting). I reinstalled my phone again and will see what happens on the ride later.

    Anyone experiencing the heart rate monitor light coming on whenever you put the phone in your pocket or cover the sensor without the apps running?

    So far the color scheme, and the email notifications on my lock screen are the most irritating. I know I can't change the colors, but what about the email notification? Like it gives part of the email on the lock screen.

    Gear S now only connects remotely even though both devices say they're paired via Bluetooth. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Simple disconnect and reconnect solved it.

    It is configurable in Settings->Sounds and Notifications->Notifications on lock screen. Actually, when 1st boot up the phone after upgrade, it asks you whether to show all contents, hide contents or non on lock screen.

    Hey all,

    I have a friend who isn't so up to date with rooting/ROMs, etc, just wants to use his phone and get the best useable one for his needs. Hence, he went with the Alpha. He got an OTA update for Lollipop and now has a barely functioning phone.

    What's the consensus at this point? I know it's pretty knew with ATT, but does anyone know what the options are? Should he go to or call ATT? (while a possibility, the people in mobile stores rarely know what the hell they are talking about...) Should he try a factory reset? Will that bring the previous version back? From Kit Kat, maybe getting rooted and using a clean version of Lollipop will help? Any help is appreciated.

    sps

    I received that update yesterday, and wish I never had. Texting no longer functions properly. The phone now often freezes up. The battery drains in almost no time and all. And in general everything is extremely slow. In addition to that, I have several apps that no longer work properly. Does anyone know of a way to revert back to kit kat?
