    Do you have the Verizon note 4? If so the reason you see 4G along with wifi is because the 5.0.1 update added calls over lte so it still shows lte when on wifi because calls can still use lte with wifi.

    Is that only when you have activated Advanced calling (verizon user asking), or is that all the time? That confuses me a little, because one time Verizon actually told me that even when connected to wi-fi, phone calls themselves do not go over wifi, that the only thing that goes over wifi is data... But of course things change and that might have changed as well.

    I cannot stand lollipop. Have to pay $75CAN to downgrade back to 4.4.4 next week. 90% of the cell phone places in Vancouver don't do it. If you say you actually like lollipop I honestly think your delusional

    I actually love lollipop, too.. Although I don't deny that I may be delusional! :-) I have better battery life, lag time has been eliminated, and my benchmark testing went up over 10% after the upgrade with no other changes. Of course, I did the factory reset. your mileage may vary :-)

    I'm curious if your Note 4 displays both Wifi and the 4G with bars at the same time when on Wifi or not. Mine didn't before the upgrade, and now it does and eats battery like crazy. My old Note 2 did this after one particular OS update, and after killing an APP, it resolved in the Note 2. I can't seem to get that to happen with the 4.
    So Apparently this is a BIG BUG in the Lollipop. I am with Verizon note 4, lollipop 5.0.1 and my data use has gone up! Even though when u r on Wifi and u see the 4G LTE lights up, if you are using an app, it will consume your 4G LTE even though u r on Wi-fi!

    This is horrible!

    I am also on Verizon, and my note 4 does not do that... I am also on Lollipop 5.0.1. I will attach two screenshots, one of LTE data, and one of WiFi. I have had trouble in the past with the YouTube app, however.

    Hmmmm...tht's interesting.
    So you are saying in the Past the Youtube app used a lot of Data for you? How did you fix it?

    So do you think perhaps this issue is app specific? like I was using the FB messenger app to make that call, was on the call for 40 mins, and then my data usage went up..do you think it's just the messenger app then?

    Just downloaded Lollipop 3 days ago on Koodo/Telus. It's the worst OS I've ever encountered and I use to be a big blackberry guy. The notifications on the lock screen are HORRIBLE just down right disgusting. No matter what I'm doing on my phone on YouTube, watching a movie, playing Clash of Clans and I get a Twitter notification it fills up 1/4 of my screen instead of just the status bar on 4.4.4. And sometimes it stays for 3 seconds, sometimes 5 and sometimes .3 seconds. The text msging is horrible and might as well just use hangouts because it's the same layout. And the Orange! Why Orange??!! I'm gona cry. Why would someone release this POS operating system. And the notification pull down panel is depressing : ( such big bubbles and take up such room for no reason. And when you go to clear it takes longer for them to clear now cuz google wanted make it look cool with a card like closing technique. I'm considering an iPhone 6+. N since I waited like 6 months to download lollipop I don't see any changes coming in 2015

    I AGREE!! I have all the same issues you have, AND my phone has froze up at LEAST a dozen times today . Extremely unhappy.

    To answer the first question, I typically shut off mobile data when I watch you tube :-) what was happening for me is that my tablet was switching over to wireless data instead of staying on the very strong wifi signal in my house. That was easy to fix, because on my tablet I just switched off mobile data and left it. But the same thing happened on my phone, too. I am Not exactly certain what triggers that behavior, but I was able to prove it sufficiently enough that Verizon gave me credit on two separate bills for data overage. and just in case, I limit my mobile data on the phone and on the tablet so I use on this account to make sure that I don't go over.

    . on the other question of whether I think it was facebook Messenger eating your data, I truly cannot say but it sure does sound a likely suspect...

    What I can say though is that since the lollipop update that I did, nearly every program that I have has had an update from the App Store. and what that means is these apps have been changing to accommodate lollipop, or for whatever other reasons there are.

    Everyone seems quick to blame lollipop because that makes the most sense, however the fact that these problems seem intermittent and don't affect all users would seem to indicate app specific problems not operating system specific problems...

    I let Lollipop install on my Nexus 7, hated it, and went through the hassle to get back to KitKat. I'm now ignoring the Lollipop update notification on my Tab S, which is what I plan to do when the update hits my GN4.

    I'm wondering if there has ever been a prior version of Android that elicited so many "This version sucks!" reactions.
    Yes, every Android update elicits the same responses.

    Just installed Lollipop. One of my essential feature is broken - split screen.

    Before: my facebook app is set to open link in external browser. i normally split screen with both Chrome and Facebook. Whatever url links i click in facebook it opens a tab in Chrome. this way i do not have to switch back and forth between apps On full screen.

    Now (after Lollipop): my facebook app is still set to open links in external browser. But any links clicked on facebook open the link in Chrome app but in the same split screen. This totally defeats the purpose of multi screen feature.
    I am looking at 2 split screens and both showing Chrome.

    I just install Lollipop too. Terrible. Split screen not working.
    I normally spilt screen to view facebook and chrome. Any links clicked in facebook will open a tab in chrome. Because it is split, i don't have to toggle back and forth between apps.

    Now with lollipop, any links clicked on facebook still opens a new chrome tab. But the chrome app opens in the same current spilt acreen, replacing my facebook.
    so i am looking at a split screen with 2 chrome App opened. btw my facebook is still set to open links in external browser.

    This is not a facebook app issue.
    I have the same issue when i split screen between whatsapp and chrome. Or any other apps. As long as a link is click and drem a chrome tab to be opened, it will replace the same active screen, even the other screen is already chrome.

    My best friend is EXTREMELY angry at the Galaxy Note 4 right now and it has to do with Lollipop. His phone constantly lags, keeps getting pop up messages saying that "Unfortunately, YouTube has stopped" or some other app saying the same kind of message, his phone has randomly restarted and now gets so hot that you can't really hold onto it. He has done every suggestion online that it says to do to fix these problems including factory reset and still encounters these problems. He's also got another friend he works with who had the Note 4 that was having those same issues, but he got rid of his.

    Is Lollipop really causing that much headache on the Note 4? I've witnessed the stuff he was talking about and was quite shocked. I've got a Galaxy S6 and it runs lightning fast and I have not encountered the type of problems he has with Lollipop. I've heard it is a memory leak issue and that Google still has not fixed the issue even with some updates to try and fix the problem. Is this something I may eventually run into with my S6?

    You should do a backup of our phone using Kies3. Then wipe the cache partition and reboot then do a factory reset. Then once you have your apps loaded and is you have a MicroSD (if not buy one) copy whatever apps you can to your SD card. Go into App Manager and into each app it will tell you if it can or can't be moved to your SD card..move them over. Apps that use location find may draw more the battery. I get close to 2 days with my Note 4 after doing above steps.
    It you don't use an app more than once a week get rid of it if you can.

    My phone runs fine on Lollipop. I expect quite a few others do too.

    It is unfortunate that many have had problems with it. When I upgraded my S5 I had quite a few problems with it but I managed to sort them all out in the end. My Note4 upgrade went seamlessly and I didn't even have to do a factory reset.

    Yes that's what I kept telling myself after doing a factory reset on Lollipop. Kept trying to convince myself that it's fine. Then I started missing my 2 day battery life and could feel the huge OS lag compared to Kit Kat. I know if I were to buy thise Note 4 while it was already on Lollipop I would be fine with it. But coming from a person who used Kit Kat for about a week before updating to Lollipop, I know my phone, I know how snappy it is, and I can distinguish the lag. I have the international version so it has no carrier bloat and still I'm telling you it's nowhere near as snappy as Kit Kat nor can the battery life even come close.

    Been quite happy with Lollipop on my Note 4. With my Nexus 7, I had bad battery drain issues with the Lollipop update and ended up doing a factory reset and fresh install of a full factory image - cured all the problems I had with it and it also runs like a charm.

    worst update ever... these notifications are driving me nuts. Especially since you can't turn off the pop-ups on some apps even if in settings you did that. ie. whatsapp.

    and orange? dont even get me started.... i had to d/l another messaging app just to get rid of it.

    now I also cant create picture folders. it keeps telling me file name already exists. No it bloody doesnt, lol!! lol
