    It was my understanding that the camera2 API would enable users to have more control over ISO, shutter speed, focus etc. Not in the default camera app but through third party apps that have been developed to take advantage of the accessible features but after running a manual camera compatibility app, it shows that there are no new features available on my Note 4.

    I had a day off sick last week, so after experiencing mild issues with Lollipop around lag, phone getting hot and poor battery life I decided to factory reset.
    Night and day difference - battery life is now marginally better than KitKat, no lag or randomly hot phones.

    It doesn't seem to work for everyone and it's a massive ball ache but if you've got a spare afternoon it's probably worth a shot.

    I imported my phone from Hong Kong. It is an sm-910u I downloaded the new OS from Sammobile & installed it using Odin. So far it is very slick. I have an LG G Watch so activated the smart unlock which is so handy. I have also downloaded some watch faces that I think we're unavailable. 18 hours in all is good and smooth. Quick question, as my phone is the Hong Kong version and I am In the UK will I get future OTA updates?

    I did just that (downgraded to KK) and it was the best decision I made. Now my phone is perfect again, just how it was to start with. But be careful if you do as you will have to factory reset it afterwards.

    Have to say I'm coming around to lollipop. I've factory reset my note (twice - Google play services crashed on me) and after a day it's settled down and is snappy as ever. I haven't even put nova launcher back on as everything seems to work. Dare I say it I actually like touchwiz.
    Never thought I'd say that!!

    If I flash the official samsung lollipop onto my note 4, does that mean I will get all official OTA updates from Samsung?

    As I have just upgraded my phone from the Note 3 to the Note 4 in the last week, I didnt spend any time with kitkat as I updated out of the box, my question is, when you are charging your phone and have the 'fast charge' option ticked, does it say 'fast charging' or anything like on the screen/notification bar?
    I have the option to enable and did a charge from 48% to full and it took around 1 hour 20 (phone on but not in use)

    I didn't even get "battery fully charged. Unplug charger" notification while on Lollipop. One of the many reason I went back to KitKat and don't regret doing that at all.

    When you pull down notificatiosn from top, you should see Fast Charging. 1h 20 sounds too long from 48-100%, should be around 30m.

    Yeah I realise this, I've contacted Samsung UK and they say the charger that was supplied in the box is the correct one but googling the model number ep-ta10uwe it comes up as the S5/Note 3 charger, this is weird as the box was sealed from delivery.
    Any new/recent owners check their model numbers just to check please.

    OK Samsung's first response to me was 'use the charger that came with your device' and I even sent them a photo of the charger!
    So when I tell them I've Googled the model number and it's not an Adaptive fast charger, they say 'the model code you have provided is not a fast charger'
    YOU DON'T SAY!
    So after contacting my phone supplier they are going to send me a fast charger.
    Still seems weird that a sealed box could contain the wrong charger but at least I wasn't losing my mind and it's sorted now and maybe of help to someone else in the future.
    Thanks to those who tried to help
    PS the reason this is posted in this thread is because Samsung said it's likely a lollipop issue and wait for an update fix lol.

    I have read on various blogs and websites about the camera API changes in Lollipop. The changes make it possible to have more control over things like shutter speed and focus etc.

    Camera API 2.0 was not implemented in the Samsung 5.0.1 build. Hopefully it will be in 5.1.1 whenever that comes.

    Ahhhh that explains it. I had come to the conclusion that my carrier hadn't enabled the features in their firmware release but your explanation has put my mind at rest.

    Thanks.
