    Not in Canada but wondering if you are saying, yes, you have received the Lollipop update?

    Well, darn! Thought maybe it was finally making its way to this part of the world.

    We got an update about month or so ago. I am with Verizon Wireless. We thought maybe it was to prepare our phones for upcoming Lollipop.

    I'm on SaskTel and I'm currently receiving what looks like the same update.

    Let's just hope this update makes lollipop an easier update whenever it comes...

    My note 4 was glitching out hard on the ride home from Ottawa this evening. Drove through that terrible snow storm! Google maps was glitching tons and my Joe rogan app was pausing and what not. Noticed this update when I got home. My phone is running far better now. But I don't understand why the states get these new features on kitkat and Canada doesn't. I'm leaning toward a firmware update and prep for lollipop. Anyone have specs on it? I can't find anything on the net.

    Its been about 15 hours of using the new update, appears its a firmware

    I noticed at first the phone appeared to be working quicker, but now its lagy, slow and glitchy. Anyone else having any issues?

    I've tires closing all active apps and device reboot.

    Do a factory reset. I usually do this once a month, in turn it has my phone running perfectly.

    The update was for Kit Kat 4.4.4 (Which was released LAST JUNE to address some security issues).

    Android 4.4.4 update sneaks out with tightened security | Mobile Phones News | TechRadar

    Why Canadian carriers take so long to upgrade their devices is a mystery to me. I guess it takes some time to add all the bloatware... At this rate, Lollipop should arrive around Christmas time.

    They don't.... The HTC M8 (Bell) started rolling out Lollipop yesterday! The update you are talking about came out in June and the Note 4 came out at the very end of October.. So your theory of getting it for Christmas doesn't make sense... The Canadian Carriers generally don't have bloat except for 1 or 2 apps to access your acount, I have one acount with Rogers and one with Bell.

    Yea it really depends on how you use your phone. I guess I'm what they consider a power user. Multiple accounts on my phone between personal and business. The system takes a beating.
