    So far I am very pleased with the update to Lollipop. I tested the issues I have had on my S5 and my alarm goes off when the phone is muted! YAY! Everything seems very snappy. I did not do a cache reset or phone reset. No problems so far. I am curious to see if my WiFi connection becomes more persistent bouncing between my house and work (sometimes it would tell me put the WiFi password in again). Texting and other tasks are quick and very responsive. Happy so far, but updates to come with any potential issues or problems. All positive thoughts from me so far though.

    On my S5 with Lollipop, when you turn on private messages, it hides the content while on the lock screen, but once you unlock it and pull down the menu it shows you the persons name and start of the message. With 5.0.1 it keeps it hidden even if you pull down the menu. So you can't see any messages unless you open the application itself. It seems like the S5 functionality seems more accurate. If I have my phone unlocked, nothing should be hidden anymore. Am I wrong to think that?

    I think you're just on the wrong forum.

    Edit: Oops! Just saw a couple of you say it's rolling out? Will have to check it out.

    I just updated to Lollipop, and so far no issues. I like the notification panel and also notifications on the lock screen. I will play during the day and post if I find any priblems or issues.

    Using Camera FV-5 app, I see that RAW photo capabilities were not enabled. I think Samsung has to update their drivers to take advantage of the new RAW capabilities supported in Lollipop.

    Using ES File Explorer, I was able to copy a file from internal phone storage to my installed microSD card - nice to have card writing back!

    After the first boot it was kind of slow. Did another reboot and let it sit for a few mins and this thing flies now. Woo! No factory reset either, but of course im still going to do one just to avoid any future issues.

    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.

    One thing i have noticed since installing this update is that my gesture to expand notifications in nova no longer works, other than that it looks and performs great so far!

    Mine was like this too at first, in fact it was so hot I had to take it out of my pocket. A couple hours later, it seems to have finished whatever it was doing and the battery is a lot better and back to normal temperatures. I think it said it was done updating, but still doing things in the background.

    I wondered the same thing, especially since that's where you use to start a new message. I keep hitting it on accident. Would be great if you could hide, I don't see one so far though.

    I haven't used Nova on Lollipop yet, only KitKat on my tablet. I would assume this is something Nova Launcher needs to fix, that was broken with the update. You may want to check for an update to see if they already have an update. I always go check for updates after an OS upgrade as there are always some pending fixes for a few apps it seems like.

    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.

    So far everything is going smooth. Yes, it got warm as everything was running full speed getting updated, but back to normal. Only thing I don't like is the coloring of some of the apps.

    As a temp workaround you can try enabling the "Assistant Menu" which has a Notification Panel dropdown soft button. to do so go to Settings>Accessibility>Dexterity and interaction>Assistant menu and you can edit the button there.

    I found a huge issue (imo) on the lock screen we no longer get scrolling notifications in the notifications bar because of the Sprint Logo. Is there a setting? I'm not a fan of having my notifications broadcasted on my lock screen but oddly enough I miss not being to see them scroll through. Am I the only one?

    I've found that opening the camera from the lockscreen is MUCH faster after the lollipop update.

    Yeah mine did too,plus my lhone went down about 30% in an hour but once it updated and all the apps updated (oh and after the phone crashed and rebooted on its own) all is good now and running beautifully.

    I hope this update doesn't ruin my battery life, it wasn't that good to begin with.

    I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of the voice key on the keyboard. I tried the old method of holding the voice key then tapping what option I wanted but that's not doing anything.

    Go to sounds & notifications then scroll all the way down to the bottom. Then choose show all content while locked. It worked for my daughter's s5.
