    Thanks for the tip! My app is up to date but I just did a search and it seems like the change with the notification bar caused this to stop working in other phones, and the dev is looking for a workaround. Hopefully there will be an update soon to fix this issue, as with a large screen it made it much more convenient.
    They said they found the fix and will include it in next release.

    As for everything else, the update has been flawless for me. Battery life, speed, smoothness...all good as ever.

    Update installed flawlessly. .. device got warm, battery drained pretty fast, once everything updated. .. (about and hour), it cooled back down, and has been running great!

    I think the only thing I DON'T like is that notifications are now bright white, and contacts pics in dialer are very small... (like the new dialer, though.)

    5he drop down notifications being so bright is annoying, though. I wish Google would offer dark themes for Gmail too.

    But they seem to hate dark themes.

    Did the update today.. seems to be pretty zippy, just smooth more than anything.

    Can't figure out how to edit lock screen items, now that everything shows up on the lock screen. Also would really prefer to be able to change the color.

    only bug/issues/change I have found that I don't like is on the apps carrousel, I can't just swipe from the SIDE, either side to close an app. One has to actually touch the menu bar of an app in the carrousel to slide it right or left. Will have to change the muscle memory to fix that.

    Oh, and it does seem to be running about 500MB at least more RAM usage just from a reboot.

    In about 24 hours in now and i must say this is running flawlessly. I cant remember an update that has gone this smooth. Sprint got this one right the 1st time.

    Updated and didn't take long to install but after all my note felt really warm. After a few hours of usage I noticed most apps did show some sluggish operation. Did some troubleshooting and ended up clearing out the cache partition. Been working OK since.... Fingers crossed

    Does anyone with the Lollipop update use or own a Gear VR? I'd be interested to know if it works since I know they postponed the update for the 99.5% of Note owners who don't own or care about it for the 0.05% of Note Owners who have purchased a VR.

    My battery is draining like mad. Two resets and a battery pull. I've lost 40 percent in two and a half hours of similar use.

    mine wasn't warm at all during the update although that may have been due to my otterbox case.

    My update got stuck after Optimizing Apps.
    I figured I'd do a battery pull after sitting for 2 hours and looking at a rotating circle in front of starting apps.

    I pulled battery (Didn't Brick it).
    Started it up. Everything was choppy.
    Okay, went to recovery to wipe the cache partition, (Not Factory Reset)

    Phone runs beautifully now.

    I didn't change any settings either. I use the stock player most of the time. I also noticed that my smart remote is gone to from the lock screen.

    So, now a day nearly into the update and I have to say one REALLY BAD Thing... Battery life..

    I'm one who historically on 4.4.4 got absolutely FABULOUS!!!! battery life, like 2.5-3 DAYS!! I know you don't believe me now, but there are screenshots in the other threads and I probably still have some. I didn't think about charging the phone really at all, it just ALWAYS had power.

    Now, today after having done the lollipop update I've had to change it fully once, after 3 hours it was dead, like totally dead, so I fast charged it again and five minutes after boot it was at 94% and says expected time 2 hours?

    So, how do I figure out what is wrong?? this is totally wrong and not worth anything if it were to stay like this
