    I must be the exception to the rule here. I downloaded, installed and physically pulled the battery when everything was back up & running and my GN4 is running great.... smooth as silk.
    I like lollipop & don't really see a big difference other than the material design look..... which I like.
    I had an issue with txt showing up out of sequence but I fixed that by clicking "network provided time" & "network provided time zone". Now all is right with the world!
    Ditto. Except that I had no text sequence issues. I did do a cache partition clear and reboot because a few people said that was a good idea to facilitate a smooth running device.

    I agree with you completely.

    This BS has definitely got me considering an iPhone. I think the biggest problem is AT&T forcing the update on us. I was planning on following the threads about Lollipop to make a decision if I wanted it or not and after just a few days of reading them I never would have updated.

    I use my phone primarily for business & the last thing I need is to spend time I don't have to spend trying to make this phone work correctly like it did on Kit Kat.

    My wife, against my recommendation, let her Note 3 update to LolliFlop today:

    2. Brutal home button lag. Had ZERO lag in KitKat.
    Haven't noticed any in TW (ugh). I'm with you on Nova, but I;m not installing "The Bug" to find out.

    4. Can no longer call a contact within the Textra app.
    The native texting app still works fine (or I'd be talking to my wife's divorce attorney by now).

    5. Google keyboard now has some very weird colored underscore lines on certain words, VERY distracting and unable to change in settings.
    Haven't noticed that.

    6. Hate the pink/yellow/turquoise color theme....I don't live in Southbeach!
    Especially on an Amoled screen - talk about battery sucker.

    7. Not sure why in contacts the contacts have different colored circles to the left of their names? Why can't we disable the pics in contacts?
    There are some VERY strange people working at Google.

    8. Can not pull down notifications from anywhere on the home screen now. You must put your finger at the very top of the screen and swype down, this is rather cumbersome with a 5.7" display. However you can swipe up from anywhere on the home screen to close notifications, this makes no sense at all.
    Never noticed that you could - you can on 4.4.2! (Learn something new every day here.) Probably another strange person at Google decided that one.

    I wonder when they'll let engineering go back to engineering Android. Marketing seems to have blown it again. (Or is it "mess it up and they'll get used to it"?)

    While I'm not having any problems with lollipop (It has actually improved things) That's why I use my iPhone as my business phone while my android phones are for personal use .

    I love how some people say that Apple is the better choice. I went with a Mac this time, because I was tired of viruses on Windows. I like the Mac, way overpriced in my opinion, as is everything Apple. Apple doesn't have Zero problems, contrary what everybody likes to think. They have forums too you know. I personally hate the update to Yosemite, although some nice features, but they didn't work correctly and I when I called The Apple tech support, nobody even new some of the new features I was using because it was helpful to me. I was using suggestions in Calendar, and I had numerous tech support guys that didn't even know the feature I was using. I still have problems with it giving incorrect info on the suggestions and got tired of talking with Apple support about it, I just deal with it.

    All electronics no matter what manufacturer are going to have problems. Some people have no problems, but no company is void of any, Including Apple. So go to Apple, it just works, right? I find their stuff expensive and boring. So not for everyone. At least on Android, I can find apps that are different and on the Apple's App store, it's very limited on certain things I look for anyway. I didn't want the update, but had to take it, and I have a few problems, with S Note. Nothing I'd even consider leaving Android for, especially for Apple. JMO, as is yours.

    I'm not going by what these forums say, I'm going by having an iphone since the first gen, and making my first switch back in November...which felt as hard as a divorce.

    Funny you mention apps too...if apps is what sways you, apples app store blows playstore out of the water. That's a fact, not an opinion.

    True, they may have more apps, funny the ones I was looking for not really. Maybe the IOS apps for the Ipad and Iphone, not the Mac. So it's my opinion yes, just because yours differs, doesn't make it a fact. It's a fact they have more apps, yes, when I look for stuff half of them aren't even rated yet and if they are they don't get very good ones. So doesn't work for me if I have to pay a lot of money for the few that are good. I like more variety, that's why I'm on Android for my phone. I like to set it up how I like. You can jail break and Ipad or Iphone, sure. My main point is, they have problems also. So when people complain about Android devices and say they should go back to Iphone, there are plenty of people who have problems with Iphones Also. That's a fact. No system is perfect. To each his own.

    Yeah because Ijunk's updates always go smooth right? Like the latest one that turned a bunch of phones into bigger pieces of garbage than they already were. Much better.

    Anybody that's having trouble tried rebooting your phone a few times? No fdr, no fancy cache wipe, just power off, leave off 2 minutes, power on? It works just fine for me.
    Android add a ringtone to a contact; tap contact, tap edit, scroll to ringtone area, tap, choose ringtone. IPhone method; plug phone into computer, make ringtone, reformat ringtone,delete original ringtone, drag, drop, sync........ then add to contact in multi step process. Yeah that's SO much easier than Android. I know you can do the Verizon Get It Now method of BUYING a ringtone from iTunes but no thanks.I'll stick with clunky Android and just reboot my phone a few times after an update. But thanks for the reminder of how ios is superior to Android

    No, a fact would be Apple's App Store blows Windows Phone's App Store out of the water. An opinion would be Apple's App Store blows Google Play Store out of the water.

    Question, and I'm not trying to start an internet war here, but if you've been with the iPhone since Gen 1, why switch to Android at a time when Apple comes out with their best and biggest iPhone to date?

    Well after being annoyed about what I read, I still moved some stuff over to my SD card and allowed room for this update.

    It's on and.... I actually like it. I don't have any of the issues other people were having.

    Google play was instantly giving me all kinds of errors, which I disabled like I had done prior anyway...and so far this thing is butter smooth. Better than its ever been actually. I may disable nova temporarily to see if I notice other differences currently being masked.

    I did read somewhere about a flashlight widget on lock screen. How do I get that to work it's not even an option for me?

    I wanted true multi window...which turns out I almost never use anyway.

    You know now that you mention that I do recall it. The only time I've had an iPhone was for less than 30 days & I think it was the original one. Did Apple force the update on iPhone owners or was it optional?

    I have always liked my Android phones and I'm PO'ed that I didn't have the choice whether to update to Lollipop or not because I would not have. Now I have a phone w/ problems on Kit Kat I had no problems.

    It's ALWAYS optional.

    Like I said, I was pretty annoyed this was forced, especially after reading the horror stories, but so far my update has me liking this phone more than ever.

    On the iPhone, as long as you don't mind the red notification badge on your home screen, you don't ever have to install an update.

    I feel very lucky that Lollipop, so far, is working well on my two phones that have it. Its fast and appears problem free. I did do a cache wipe in recovery afteer the install but that is simple enough. I was surprised because I expected to have some problems.

    I haven't had any issues either. My battery life is the same as before and my aps are running fine. Weird how some have problems and some don't. I did not factory reset. I just pulled my battery for a few minutes and rebooted.

    I don't like the fact that my keyboard doesn't give vibrate feedback when I have the phone on vibrate. Also, my Location (GPS) doesn't stay on after I reboot my phone.

    The fact that my contact pix don't show up on the lock screen when I get a text like in 4.4.4 sux too.

    Agreed. I fail to see what most users have against a factory reset. It is 100% less painful than reformatting a windows pc.
    You guys ARE doing fresh installs of Windows every once in a while, right? I try to do a re-install about every 2 years or so on my main PC. I've done it the last couple of years just due to hardware changes anyway. But ,really, it is a good thing to do. Do a fresh install of everything every once in a blue moon.

    Yes, but Windows can easily be kept in tip-top shape without doing a fresh install, IMPE.

    I ditched Apple 6 months ago and I don't think I'll look back until iOS is customizable like Android. I had HORRIBLE experiences with every generation of iPhone I owned, but I stuck with it because it wasn't until recently that I found a phone that made me realize it was time to jump ship. I always JB my iPhones (didn't cause any of the issues I had, they were always physical or if software rated it was stock iOS) and loved the customization I had and that's one reason I didn't want to jump to the 6 from my 5. I've only had my Note 4 for a month now but I absolutely love it. I honestly don't even mind the stock TouchWIZ which I hated on the S5. I definitely don't utilize the Note 4 to its true potential, but I appreciate everything it does and then some. Restoring from the SD card and cloud backup put my phone to about 80%+ of how my S5 was, so I didn't really have any issue setting it up.

    AT&T has yet to "force" Lollipop on me, maybe it's because I haven't checked for the update yet? I definitely dig 4.4 on my device but I'm not opposed to trying L on it either. I like to tinker and experiment. I did basically the same sh*t with jail breaking my iOS devices and spent months getting them exactly how I wanted, and if I restored etc I'd have to spend time getting them back to how they were. Nothing new to me. iOS backups always gave me some kind of grief in one form or another no matter how polished they should've been.

    Funny that I mention all of this as I type on my god awful slow first gen iPad mini with horrible battery life, which I refuse to ditch still because of the fact that I like how I've set it up.

    Anyway my apologies for semi hijacking this thread
