    With the Nexus 6 being released with lollipop and rivaling the N4 spec wise, samsung will probably move as fast as possible to get it to the N4.

    I will not make mistake again, last time I rushed to update my note 3 from JB to KK, the results was simply bad. I will not trust anything put out by google until its fully reviewed by many many many users.

    Fixed.
    The KK update went without a hitch on my Nexus devices, so the issues you experienced were likely resulting from flaws in Samsung's editing of the update to make it work with the modified version of Android they issued on the N3.

    I remember wifi issues when KK finally came out on the Note 2 in May, and that was after it had already been pushed out to the Note 3 and the S4 weeks earlier. Different devices, but still. What's maddening is that the carriers supposedly take another couple of months after Samsung releases the update, so you'd think during all that time they'd pick up on anything Samsung had missed. Not.

    does it matter for Note users? I don't think so.

    plus, to claim that KK update came with no problem on Nexus devices, is...... not true. You may want to hesitate a bit before blaming sammi, LOL

    Well, to be fair, I was trying to correct your error of omission, wherein you voiced distrust for what you implied to be solely Google's update. You did not receive an update by Google, but rather Samsung's modification to that update. It is certainly possible that any error Samsung devices running Touchwiz might suffer from OS updates can be attributed to Google, but by no means are they the only chef in the kitchen - Samsung should be indicated as another possible contributor.

    As to my claim that there were 0 issues with updating to KK, my stated claim was 100% accurate as it specifically referred to my experience on my devices - I did not generalize that claim to all devices. Where it mattered for Note users is that it demonstrated that the problem may lie with Samsung's development rather than with Google's.

    **** an upgrade that was supposed to better your device instead forced you to upgrade? Wow, I may not upgrade to Lollipop at all.

    Kind of irrelevant given this is a Samsung forum. Wherever it comes from, any update should be viewed with caution after what KK did to the GN3.

    mmm...

    Atrocious change to battery life after Note 3 KK update
    Atrocious change to battery life after Nexus KK update.

    I will just leave it at that for others to figure out where the problem lies.

    PS, sure, not everybody will have the problem, but they are surely significant enough to be seen everywhere online.

    As I indicated in an earlier followup to that post, it was only provided in evidence to the fact that an earlier poster may have been 'jumping the gun' in blaming Google for a faulty update. I certainly don't want to give the impression that I'm bashing Samsung or their products - I actually like a number of the things they've done for the industry.

    And to point, it's generally prudent to view any update from anyone with caution. For my part, I'd rather delay that instant gratification of an updated OS a few days to make sure that it's not causing massive headaches to others, first.

    You order a salad at a restaurant. The chef prepares it, the waiter brings it out. Ravenous, you dive in. A few bites later you notice a hair lying across a leaf of lettuce in the corner.

    Do you immediately presume the chef must be to blame, or consider the possibility that anyone who has taken possession and control of that plate since it left the chef's hands might alternatively be responsible.

    That's my whole point - I'm not trying to absolve Google or to accuse Samsung, but to point out that the reverse, which was the implied thrust of your initial post, is equally ill-advised.

    Same here. If Note 4 still has that problem it's going back as time for different phone

    I like some of the material design, but I think they are getting carried away with the colors. The 5.0 messaging app theme looks like it should be called "gay pride."

    Have you used the stock 5.0 messaging app? It has almost every color of the rainbow in it.

    Also, I didn't correlate it to color in general. I was specifically referring to the theme of this particular app.
