    Anyone also experiencing this. Before when switching to power saving mode the screen would turn gray to save battery. Now I click on power saving mode and nothing happens. I do have gray scale settings ON

    Upgraded my AT&T Note 4 to Lollipop yesterday. Can't really tell much about battery life so far, but overall it seems to be smooth, I like the changes TouchWiz makes to Lollipop (I also have a Nexus 7 so Lollipop isn't new to me), and things have been running smoothly.

    It didn't fix the intermittent GPS failure I have been experiencing, but it doesn't seem to have made it worse or broken anything else I use either.

    One HUGE enhancement is that my fingerprint scanner now comes up as a viable security option for unlocking the phone under MobileIron. That, to me, is worth the upgrade right there.
    My thought exactly. I'm impressed at how much smoother and faster it is.

    Yes Ultra works. My question is why isn't Power Saving Mode working?

    Mine didn't at first but now it fits after turning on grey mode and restrict background on.

    Ugh, keep getting these random internet crashes after updating. Very annoying. Maybe I should've stayed with Kit Kat, it is a better tasting candy after all

    I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that you have 40 tabs open?

    I'm experiencing no issues at all since the update. Battery life is acceptable for me. No charge issues. Now, I must add that I suspect that I'm not the power user that some of you are.

    Just got an email from Nova Launcher that the Lollipop update broke their swipe down gesture. They are currently working on a fix, they're in beta right now

    Upgraded this morning and am very happy. Much easier than when I updated my S5. Battery looking good. Didn't have to do a factory reset either.

    Has anyone else been having problems with apps crashing after the update? FB and the browers, Firefox, Dolphin, Chrome, CM browser have all be crashing more often since the update. I've tried to uninstall them, clear the cache partition and reinstall. It doesn't seem to fix the problem. Other than that, I haven't seen any problems. Lol

    Try doing a factory reset.

    Just activated Sprint Note 4. It has downloaded Lollipop and ready to be installed. I'm not sure which version it's going to install. But my S5 updated to 5.0 and I really don't like it(apps close, notification light, lock screen, etc). Should I install it?

    I am on AT&T ver 5.01 and there are a few things I like and several annoying features. The Smart Unlock feature works fairly well for me at home. I had to include a couple of neighbor's address to get it to work. It would not work with just my home address. And, sometimes it will still lock the screen (not often). I haven't tried the Bluetooth Smart Unlock feature.

    I really like the lock screen notifications, but I don't like the way they are implemented. First, you only get two notifications at most to show. If there are more than two, a little bar appears at the bottom that you expand. That takes you to your home screen where all the notifications will appear. But first, you have to swipe on the lock screen to get past it. It's not locked, but you still need to swipe. The lock screen gets this gray box to indicate it. Why can't it just go directly to the app or home screen when you swipe or pull down a lock screen notification?

    I also hate the fixed placement of the lock screen notifications. They always appear at the top of the lock screen. And they always shrink the lock screen clock down to a small size? Why is that? I like the large clock and want to see it at that size at all times. The other bad thing for me is they took the weather forecast off my lock screen. I always looked at that and now it's gone. These things should be user configurable settings. They have made the lock screen less flexible.

    Another annoyance for me is the Comcast Xfinity email app. I have notifications turned on and each new email sound is a short beep. On Lollipop, the notification sound for this app often stutters. Instead of one short beep, it will beep like a little machine gun - beep,beep,beep,beep,beep, etc. Very annoying.

    My heart rate sensor lit comes on all day when something touches it. I have to turn my phone around in my pocket so other people can't see the red light shining through my pants. I use Google Fit and have no plans to delete it. It always worked fine before Lollipop.

    AT&T has placed their logo permanently in the status bar. It's the first item on the top left. Why? I didn't have that before.

    My battery life is worse, without a doubt. I tries the clear cache, the battery pull but not a complete reset. That is way time consuming to set the phone back up the way I like it. And it doesn't necessarily fix any of the issues I have according to what others say here.

    I wish I could get my issues addressed. I read that it is unlikely that we will get Lollipop 5.1 anytime soon, if ever. Except for the Smart Unlock feature, I kind of wish I stayed with Kit Kat. My phone was stable then and i could have used an app to get Lock Screen notifications with a lot more flexible settings.

    I forgot to mention the crappy Do Not Disturb changes. Now, my LED light shines all night even though the phone is supposedly in Blocking Mode. What is up with that? It worked really great before.

    No issues for me loved the Lollipop finally a notification on the lock screen. There's lots of apps that does that but i rather it come by default. Also i don't want to swipe twice to get access to my phone. That's the problem with third party lockscreen notification of course not all of them does that. As far as battery goes it's the same as it was I still get 2 full days of usage before i charge. So unless i get 3 full days i'm not going to even bother factory wipe.

    I've also lost the ability to copy & paste between most apps. Even more frustrating I'm unable to cut n paste even within a solitary app, sometimes I am only allowed to copy a single word or character. It's hit or miss if anything even makes it to the clipboard. In Email I can only paste into the subject line, the curser will blink in the body of the email. Maps also no longer allows me to bring or take an addres in or out, typing only. Factory reset seems my only option.

    My phone actually started giving me problems after the update. I had lag, random freezes and my battery life is horrible now. It's probably half of what it used to be.

    I found a way to downgrade back to Kit Kat without Root, but does anyone know how to prevent the phone from constantly asking me to update the software after I downgrade? That's the reason I have in and upgraded to Lollipop in the first place.

    If it's just a notification telling you that a new software is available and gives you the option to download it now or later, click on later. It will then ask you when you want to be reminded about the update again, choose never and it should go away. It worked for me. If the update has already been downloaded I don't think there's much you can do apart from a factory reset.

    No matter what I did the notification kept coming back. Wish I never downloaded Lollipop, this new update that got pushed out is even worse. Getting freezes and app crashes and another drop in battery life. I've wiped system cache, app cache and data and even uninstalled and reinstalled apps. Nothing helps.
