    The same reason people foam at the mouth in the weeks/months prior to a new phone rolling out. Gotta have the latest/greatest/cutting edge.

    People like new things, whether it's good or bad. I like my Note 4 as it is and don't care if it's got latest Google's confectionary in it. It does what I want it to do perfectly well.

    Cause carriers lock down devices making it hard to customize and fix or bypass software issues/limitations ourselves so users are forced to hope that the next iteration of software is going to fix things . . .

    Some techy-types like new things, good or bad. The general android-toting public couldn't care less about Lollipop.

    FWIW, I have Lollipop on my Nexus 7 tablet - it's OK, but not a lot different. There are changes I like and others I don't care for.

    It will be just like every other update - we're exited to get it, then complain once it's here.

    This AC article explains it all quite well (excerpt below, bolded part by me! ): Why you'll never have the latest version of Android | Android Central

    Excerpt:
    "As updates become more common, and consumers become more tech-savvy, there’s an increasing awareness that devices can be updated, and an expectation that they should be updated. With that comes a sort of “update anxiety.” If you’ve dropped by any smartphone message board, such as our own forums or XDA’s, you’ll know what we mean by this. Threads abound asking when ICS, or Jelly Bean, will be available for certain devices. In the event of delayed or even canceled updates, Internet denizens swear they’ll never buy another phone from that manufacturer or carrier again. It’s an entirely negative ownership experience.

    While this isn’t representative of the entire user base -- not by far -- it’s an example of how many power users experience Android smartphones. They’re always behind the curve, always waiting on an update, never fully enjoying the product that they’ve bought as they’ve bought it. Part of that is the fault of the tech press -- we’re always focused on what’s new, and that means talking about software that hasn’t yet reached most folks."

    I love the new and different. It is a challenge for the synapse to get wrapped around different. Just what the Doctor ordered.

    why is everyone so hyped about lollipop?-thedoctor.jpg

    Supposedly lollipop fixes the issues with files on the SD card. Right now I have to use the stock Samsung stock gallery application in order to delete images or videos. It has limited functionality compared to other galley apps. That's a big, to me, reason to look forward. But I need to see what else lollipop changes, whether for good or bad.

    SD card access changes will be nice. It will be interesting to see what native ART runtime does for performance - 5.0 on my 2013 Nexus 7 definitely speeded up startup. Also, USB audio out supposedly will work.

    What are you using - OTG cable + some form of digital audio converter or an amplifier? It does not work with the standard micro USB connection like on a dock - why audio won't work on the Samsung dock.

    edit - there's a discussion on this over at XDA:

    I've been talking to people on the Original Note 10.1 forum here about not being able to update some apps now on my Note 10.1 (2012) which is still on Jellybean. I was anxious to get JellyBean and it was something new and an Update which I liked very much, but no more updates after that. Am I upset, yes, but I'm happy with it the way it is now. I can update to Kit Kat by using a different Country's firmware which I did before we got Jelly Bean to test it out. I don't do it now, because if I update, I will lose some features I use all the time now. I like being able to cascade the windows and also move the window around the screen. If I lose that in the Kit Kat Update, It's not going to make my experience any better. I am upset that I can't update the apps and may have to do the Kit Kat Firmware, but I'm fine not doing the update if I don't want to. I'm getting a lot of People telling me they'll never buy a Samsung Device again, because a flagship device only got one update in a couple of years. I'm like, what else out there can you get that does what the Note Series does? Nothing! I use my Note 10.1 for drawing, so the S Pen is a big thing to me. Ipads don't cut it and Surface doesn't have many apps and too expensive. So I'm not thrilled about not that many updates, but there's usually a workaround or something to get them on XDA forum. I'm waiting for a new Note 10.1 to come out this year, hopefully if the rumors are true. I will not give up on Samsung, just because of Updates.

    I guess my point is, like others have said, if it's something that's really worth getting in an update or a major change, I'm all for it. If it's more problems, I can wait. I love my Note 4 the way it is now and I still don't know all the features it does and I've had it since release day. So updates can be nice, but sometimes it doesn't always seem like it's needed. I use to be all excited like everybody else about them. Talk to me in a year or so, if I get bored with the phone, which I don't see happening, maybe I'll consider it. I hope they find an easy root method so I can skip the Lollipop update. I'll wait until the bugs are out. I know you can Root the Note 4 now, but waiting until it's an easier process. Last I read, Verizon Note 4 you still couldn't root, just T-Mobile and AT&T, not sure about the Sprint Variant. I only want root to skip the OTA, nothing else.
