    One day after the update, battery life is better than normal.
    10 hours
    50%
    On 4G most of the day which usually drains battery quicker (for me).

    So far battery life is improved.

    Bucked up and went ahead with the update. Everything seems to be here. Phone icon is here. Correct temp and location both stock and my weather radar app. Time is correct.

    Really did it because on wi-fi a good deal and seek it out where possible. Can't tell as yet about improved wi-fi. I had not been dropping connection before the update. So not sure what to look for....nothing visibly different with regard ti connection strength.

    N4 did not noticeably heat up. It got a little warmer during the upgrade. But that was it. Anything else I should look for to see if there is a glitch?

    That appears to be an Android feature! Get the app "Disable Increasing Ring". It will remove it.
    Good Luck!

    Was hoping to get rid of it without having to install a app...Oh well, it ain't a deal breaker for me!

    Did anyone else see the weather icon and temperature show up on their lock screen after this update?

    Mine did and it's not even accurate. It's been showing 51° consistently for the last day after installing this update and it's only 32° where I live. We have not seen 51° in weeks.

    I checked the settings and I have this disabled but it's still being displayed.
    goin_nil - I found the reason your temperature isn't updating! Go to "Settings" - Check my screenshots for the rest:


    Select "Lock Screen" >


    Select "Show Information" >


    Under "Additional Information" press Weather = On >


    Make sure the upper right button is "ON" > "Use Current Location" is "ON" > Change "Auto refresh" to "Every 1 Hour"

    ...then the weather will be for where you are (via location services) and it will update every hour! Found it after much "Button Pushing"!!!

    Geez I don't know. Just decided to take a quick peek at Microsoft Office Mobile as I think a good many are interested in it. Reviews just posted in the last day or so are just hideous. You get the feeling that if they could have awarded 0.00000025 stars, they would have.

    Could be other Android users and not N4 guys. But it did not look pretty!

    Verizon Galaxy Note 4 1440p After Latest Update!


    I can tell you after the update I now can playback 1440p on YouTube! I had orginally had Version 6.0.11 installed and even after the update I could not go higher, but I tried a method and it worked. Hopefully it works for others. Here is what I did:

    1. After Update, Forced stopped YouTube 6.0.11.
    2. Cleared cache and data.
    3. Turned off YouTube and it Uninstalled it back to 5.9.0.13.
    4. Now when I went back to this version, I went into youtube and played some videos and the 1080p option was back as I only had 720p before, but I could not select 1080p as it would only do 480p. Not even 720p would stay selected.
    5. So I updated to 6.0.11 through play store and bingo!!! 1440p was and option and working!!! Youtube never looked so good!! Make sure your version of Youtube after it reverts back is 5.9.0.13 and try to play a 1080p video and see if the option is available. If so, update to the 6.0.11 version and you should have 1440p as an option now.

    Happy Viewing!!
    This didn't work for me at all after the Verizon update. Version 6.0.11 only has 720 option and when I rolled back to 5.9.0.13 it also only had 720 as the highest option. Did the steps as detailed above and no luck...

    Can anyone confirm if the fingerprint scanner works any better?

    Posted via the Android Central App
    It works now which I guess is better than before the update when it didn't work at all.

    When ARE we getting the Lollipop on Verizon?? =(
    What seemed as reasonable estimates when I got the phone suggested sometime after the first of the year. I haven't heard anything to suggest otherwise.

    Without trying to be a smartass, those sort of updates will be when they'll be, with Verizon typically being one of the last carriers to release it. Relax and enjoy the ride.

    Just finished the update. But somehow, I lost the icon for my phone dialer.......I can still press where it is supposed to be and it pulls up the dialer, it has phone underneath it, just no icon. Weird. This happen to anyone else?
    Yes, exactly the same for me as you described! I was going to hold off from the update and hit the install button by mistake! Urgh!

    My guess is it will based on the bolded item below from the change log (disguised as support for another language). Also saw a recent review in the Play Store for FoxFi that mentions a recent Verizon update broke it. Due to this, as well as I have no use for any of the other listed fixes and my Note 4 runs like a champ with great battery life, I'm not going to take the update and risk messing anything up! If it ain't broke...

    "Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a software update that will improve the performance
    of your Samsung GALAXY Note 4 smartphone.

    It is a cat and mouse game. Update, block foxfi, foxfi finds another exploit. Personally I use the unlimited hotspot add-on from Verizon and it works great, though I understand that some people would prefer to violate the terms of service to save money.

    I respect IP. I deal in IP. This doesn't make the TOS always right. I don't even use my tablet anymore but when I did it bugged me that they wanted me to pay money to use the same connection I already pay for with the only 2 eyes that I have. Since I don't even use it now I can't remember the details but I think there is even legislation or a court decision addressing this. To be clear...it is a TOS violation...but I believe a justified one and dpham...do you honor all the TOS? Have you never rooted a device?

    It's BS... I paid for unlimited Data and how I use my data should be my business. If I want to use FoxFi which is part of the Android market I should be able to do that. Verizon is just like the Government, they can't stand not milking their constituents for every last dime they can get out of them. I already pay $350/mo for service... give me a break!
