    +1 for Maildroid Pro!
    I've been using maildroid (free) for years myself. Aside from the ads, what other advantages are there to the pro serious vs the free?

    Read the threads about it. Buggy? No, they'd have to get a lot of bugs fixed for it to be buggy. It's more like one huge insect. Almost every phone, from every manufacturer, has some bugs (different ones) on Lollipop. That says that the initial design (by Google) had problems.

    You hope it's soon? I don't expect to be even thinking of updating until the summer. Maybe later. My Note 3 running on 4.4.2 is doing all I need it to do - with no bugs.
    I used to quiver in fear at every OS upgrade from Microsoft, wondering whether all hell would break loose. I admit it has become like that with Android now, too. I'm willing to let others be beta testers.


    Good thing??? I don't think so. They have now neutered the uSD card thanks to DRM afcinatos pressure. Apps like Nook and Kindle no longer let you store your books/publications on the uSD card. They claim it's for DRM reasons... yep. This is also why current Nexus devices no longer have uSD ports (Nexus 5, 7, etc.). Now 4.4.2 was out there before these restrictions were imposed. 4.4.4 and Lollipop are definitely more restrictive unless you are one of the people who root their devices.
    By all accounts, it is the reverse--more power over SD, not less. The two examples you cite are very limited issues. It sounds like what Amazon did with the Win 8 App version of Kindle software, not per se an Android issue and coming whether or not a new Android version comes.

    Lies? Did Samsung promise a date? Don't the carriers get a chance to screw up the updates when Samsung finishes with them?

    The last I heard about an update was towards the end of November/early January which said "some time after the new year." That's a pretty broad target.

    Actually Samsung has been pushing carriers to get Lollipop out ASAP, in fact they are skipping 5.0 and going to 5.1 for the Note 4.

    Its the CARRIERS not Samsung that is the hold up.

    Supposedly AT&T will have a N4 OTA Lollipop update this month (January) but I thought it was 5.0 with 5.1 coming this summer.

    Yes they lie. On my note 3, they said 4.4.4 will reach note 3 by July 2014 and now we are in 2015.

    You can defend them all you want but this is how they do it. They have tons of devices and they can't catch up. If you get 5.0.1 don't expect 5.0.2 any time soon which is the latest from Google.

    Everything that I have heard says that the Note 4 will get the 5.1 and skip 5.0 entirely because of the problems Google had with it.
    and it should be out by or before the end of January.

    I've been using it since beta. I prefer it much more over Google Maps. I turned off G Maps after about a month of using it.

    I downloaded this to check it out for a friend that doesn't have any data to use with g maps. I rebooted N4 and still can't get a map to show. Just my locator on the screnen and white background. Do I need to disable g maps? Uninstall/reinstall?

    MAY THE 4 BE WITH YOU!
