    No additional cost for the service of HD calling and video calling, but video calling uses data I believe and I think minutes too. HD calling just uses minutes. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    Video calling using data just like Skype. HD calling is just minutes and will only work if the other person has HD calling too.

    I ended up having to do a factory reset. My battery ended up lasting only a few hours and was getting hot to the touch. Plus, for whatever reason, the heart rate detector was constantly starting up. Several people commented about the red glow coming from my pocket. It sucks having to do a reser, but things seems to be soo much better now.

    Update. I updated the day it came out. The only issue...so far was battery life was horrible. I had wiped cache and nothing changed. I decided to do a factory wipe. I let battery die...still drained fast, then did a non fast charge. I am glad to say that I am back to 20+ hours of battery life. A factory wipe is a pain, but I actually did not mind, as it cleaned up a bunch of stuff I did not need.

    My Note 4 had no problems with Lollipop installation. It's been working great all day.
    Same here. No issues

    My update went smoothly. But I didn't wipe my cache afterwards. What are the benefits of doing it? And the costs?

    Thanks!

    Update made my phone unusable while I was away at a wedding. Had to do a factory reset and now everything works... Couldn't log into my Gmail since 2step verification relied on my phone and I had to go two days at a wedding without anyones contact information.

    Since I sorted it all out though, I really like the update.

    I just received my new Note 4 on Friday. After going through the setup the Lolipop update came through. I allowed the update and everything seemed OK except that the phone got very hot. The battery usage seemed high but being unfamiliar with the new phone I used it for a day and it still seemed to be using a lot of battery. I did the cache wipe which didn't seem to help and finally gave in and did factory reset. The battery now seems to be performing much better. Still getting used to the new device, but it is smooth and fast and seems pretty awesome coming from a RAZR Maxx hd...

    Mine has been worse, but will give it a few more days.

    I have had the update for several days now. Battery life stabilized over the weekend, and my standby battery life seems to be at least the equal of KitKat, may be better. This week will be the better test with full work days.

    Lollipop is running more smoothly than KK. As many have stated in the past, KK animations would occasionally 'snag', and the app switcher and camera had noticeable lag at launch. I have not seen any of these 3 issues since the Lollipop update, not to mention the new animations are nice (and smooth). Overall, I really like the update.

    I did not do a FDR.

    Mine hasn't been awesome but hasn't been horrible. Got 15 hours on use with almost 4 hours of screen on time on 4G all day. Normally I would have gotten around 20-21 hours with that kind of usage

    Hopefully it will get better. If not, well I'm glad I have extra batteries and an external battery charger lol

    Got my OTA update a couple of days. I just have a couple of issues:
    1. The Gallery app force closes after just a few seconds every time I launch it. I wiped cache but still did not solve the issue.
    2. I kept getting push notification that Amazon App was not working. So I had to turn it off.

    Besides that I am happy with the performance. I have not really kept tab on the battery life so I cannot say whether it has improved or worsened.

    I did notice that voice feedback on S-Voice came back after this update. I am happy.

    I still cannot get Google Maps to use my SVOX voice though.

    Is anybody having email issues? My emails aren't coming through right away. Always have to do a manual refresh to see if I have any new emails.

    Anyone having wifi and 4g on the notifications bar working at the same time?. Most of the time while on wifi the date transfers through the wifi logo arrows. But sometimes, the 4g arrows are sending data back and forth. Can figure this thing out still.

    This site provides the best source of information regarding lithium-ion batteries. Tons of true info there. I think it was just coincidence and that your battery needed to readjust.
    But I've got to ask, 20+ hours of life out of a note 4? What do you do with it? I haven't seen 20+ hours of life out of a battery since the days of the Motorola Razr. Unless my Note 4 is idle all day, there's no way I'm ever going to see even 10 hours. Do other people here get 20 hours without a charge? Or am I alone here?

    I get all day use without a charge, well beyond 10 hours. Most days I have over 30% battery left when I put it on the charger for the evening, which on average is a 16-18 hour day. I have only seen the battery hit the 20% mark once or twice this year, and that was due to pretty heavy gaming sessions when I was without my tablet. Otherwise, I would classify my use as moderate.

    I came from the Maxx, which had excellent battery life as well. For the most part, the Note 4 has matched that experience.
