    Once you flash you can't go back. Not unless you can find a custom ROM maybe, but it depends on what you have and what you are running.

    I didn't want to update because I was holding on to the slight chance that somebody would crack the AT&T bootloader but the phone updated without my consent and I was verbally upset. After playing with it for a couple days, at least with my phone, 5.0.1 seems better all around than 4.4.4. I have none of the issues that everyone else is having. My battery life is drastically better and to me at least, it's visually more appealing.

    My one gripe is the old blocking mode has turned into an unusable do not disturb mode. Thankfully, I found an app that mimics the old blocking mode.

    I totally agree with you. The more I use my phone Lollipop is a complete disaster.

    On my g3 I couldn't have been more unhappy. I don't see why people were dying for it when it was slower, ruined my batter life, and wasn't even that nice looking.

    Samsung wants us to be beta testers for lollipop. No thanks, as long as my phone can do the functions I need, I'm staying on Kit Kat FTW

    It's hard to say who's at fault here or if it's a combination of Google, Samsung & AT&T.

    AT&T is definitely at fault for forcing the update on us but you know if the N4 wasn't one of the first phones scheduled for Lollipop everybody'd be moaning & groaning about it.

    I sure wish I could say the same thing. As I said on another Lollipop thread it's very interesting to me how some people are having excellent experiences w/ Lollipop & others like me have nothing but problems.

    Seems like it took a while for the new OS to get the feel of the phone and the operator. Don't know, now the phone is better than before.

    Actually, I'm having a great time. Just uploaded this morning and it's like night and day.

    It's immediately and noticeably much FASTER and the battery life is excellent - I've been on 2hrs straight with a drop off of 15% from 100 to 85.

    It's excellent. Smoother too, and FINALLY, not a trace of lag.

    Don't know what everyone else is on!!

    No issues so far...but I can't really say that I've noticed better or worse battery, or for that matter...other than a few cosmetic changes...don't really see anything breath taking...other than the that fact that I can now DISABLE EVERNOTE!!! :-D

    Yea ofcourse, download the 4.4.4 firmware for your model number from Sammobile and flash it with odin. Simple instructions on Sammobile download page. No root required, does not trip Knox counter.

    Did you manage to go back to KK successfully because I'm seriously thinking about doing it? Something is keeping my phone awake most of the time on Lollipop and I never had that problem on 4.4.4. I agree with other people that Lollipop is not as sweet as it was supposed to be.

    Several people have gone back to KK after they found problems with Lollipop, you will loose all you data on the phone though. Also a lot of people like to do a hard reset both before and after a big update.

    I think it's just a good idea to just backup necessary data and do a hard reset. Who knows how upgraded settings and software work... One wrong line of code not made for the Os and new Os... Bye bye good battery life! And laggy!

    Sorry for your experience but I think some problems could be carrier specific as most users are not having issues, on the contrary it is faster and battery life is improved on mine with Sprint here in Orlando.

    After reading thru things around here these days. I don't regret switching to the nexus 6 recently. With 5.1 on board and no real issues at all I'm glad I'm not going thru this update. I miss my s pen mostly and the camera on the note 4 but that's really it for now.

    When I first downloaded the update my battery life was terrible. Something kept draining my battery. Come to find out it was messaging backup and sync. After killing it and doing a master reset my battery life is better now than it was on KK.

    With every large update, there are problems such as battery drainage, rouge apps, etc. I have never seen an occasion after an update that a factory reset didn't solve the problems. Yes, perhaps a big update has fried a phone or two, but I have never seen it. Do a factory update after the update if your phone is acting up. My stubborn brother spent a dang week complaining about Lollipop until he finally gave in and did the factory reset. Now he loves Lollipop.

    I did a factory reset and wiped cache partition before and after the update for this very reason, but my phone is nearly always awake and I have not even downloaded or updated any apps. I'm at a loss here, don't know what it is, but it was not like that on KK. I would love to like Lollipop as it definitely appears faster and smoother, but at the moment it's just killing my phone.

    Is it really that bad? I recently upgraded from a Galaxy S5. And the lollipop update on that phone was indeed terrible, it launched a lot of user complaints on Verizon. I am on tmobile but I do remember that the battery life SUCKED after the lollipop update on the S5.I think that's because the update was for 5.0. Seeing as the update for the note 4 is going to be 5.0.1 instead (right?) I don't think we'll be having these issues? Although, I do agree that having to do a hard factory reset shouldn't be the solution. I personally have hundreds of apps installed on phone and to reset and have to reinstall each of them and customize them again would take hours, if not a day. Sometimes it's not doable.
