    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

    Welcome to Android Central! Sorry to hear about it. If you dislike it that much, you could consider flashing the KitKat firmware via Odin again: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...interface.html. Find the proper firmware here: Firmwares - SamMobile

    You can turn the notification option off. I dont let mine do the pop stuff.

    Sounds more like a settings problem then lollipop problem.

    Mike, have you gone to each of the offending apps and tried to change the settings within each app. My text app defaults to showing incoming texts on my screen without me opening the app. I had to change that as I did not want my texts on my screen until I opened it. I am sure there are other default annoyances, I just can't think of any at the moment.

    Most messaging apps that have pop ups have a option to turn it off in settings.

    I agree, the notifications are lacking big time compared to KK. An absolute abomination on Google's part.

    Should I get an iPhone too? Seems to be the going Android fanboy response here whenever someone disagrees with their precious creation.

    I really have not noticed anything different about the notifications from Kit Kat to Lollipop after changing settings within the apps. Can you post a screen shot?

    I'm currently with Telus and loved the new Lollipop. I actually like the notification doesn't bother me at all to be honest. I've been waiting to finally have a lockscreen notification it's not the prettiest but still there's going to be improvement from the next upgrade of OS that's for sure. However as far as the sms goes i never bother to use their stock i ended up using the google messenger nicer and cleaner. As far Touchwhiz i'm glued to Nova Prime launcher as you have more control on how you want your phone to look. So no complaints here.

    Here's an example of lackluster notifications. This is my lockscreen. Why does the calendar notification pop up AND STAY THERE until the user performs an action? This is just an example. Every notification appears like this. In KK, the notification would pop up in the status bar/notification center. If anyone ever looked at your phone when it was locked and you have notifications, they can see more than you want them to see. And before everyone chimes in defending this new way of doing things, yes, my settings are correct and if there was a setting to change this, I would have set it.

    Simply go into the calendar settings and turn notifications off. Or just turn the notification bar notifications off.
    As to suggesting an iPhone, I believe the reasoning for this is that since the iOS gives you no options about anything, it saves a person from learning how to set up their phone exactly as they like it. Android on the other hand requires a bit of effort to learn because it does in fact give the user lots of options on how their phone works and looks.
    After hundreds of inspiring and helpful thread titles like this thread folks that took the time to learn how to utilize Android's many options get a bit tired of hearing the same litany of 5 year old petulant whining.

    There are always two sides to every story. I like the notifications. A lot. In fact, in KK I had an app that popped up notifications just as Lollipop does it. With it built in I no longer need the extra app.

    So, while one person says this sucks, I say it rocks.

    Is there a setting I can play around with to not have notifications come on the lock screen and just have them show up in the notifications like with Kitkat? Thanks. I don't like the new notifications systems either and turning them off completely is not something I wanna do either.

    I've had an Android phone since 2009 among others so don't start any garbage with me about learning Android. Turning off notifications is not gonna fly for me. The notification systen is horrible in 5.0. Disgustingly horrible. This is my opinion. You want to start calling people 5 year olds, get the hell out of here. Have a great day.

    Lol I don't understand why my text msg are now not a priority and my twitter notifications are now. In KK my text messages always stayed on the lock screen no matter what now I have to unlock my phone to see that I have a text. If more twitter notifications come in the text msging icon will dissappear completely. I understand I can turn off twitter notifications but it's just not an option for me. In KK they would just appear in the status bar and I could read the twitter notifications while I'm typing or reading something now a huge pop up screen comes up and covers 1/4 of the screen so I have to stop whatever I'm doing.

    I'm trying to farm and this big *** notifications screen pops up every 10 seconds. And the time it stays on the screen varies. Sometimes it stays on for 10 seconds sometimes .2 seconds and it's impossible to read

    No there isn't and that's why it's a huge problem for some users myself included. Now I have to unlock my phone every time the LED flashes to know what activity occurred. I don't use the lockscreen notifications because they cover your lockscreen message which has my ICE #'s & I haven't taken the time to edit the lockscreen picture to add that info to it. That's another mistake on Google's part, your lockscreen message & lockscreen notifications should work simultaneously, not one or the other. Google knows leaving out the lockscreen notifications was a mistake which is why they're bringing them back (like Kit Kat had) in Lollipop 5.1. But it will probably be the better part of a year by the time AT&T shoves 5.1 down our throats.

    As I said on another thread I flat out don't like the larger Lollipop notifications. For the way I use my N4 there is nothing about Lollipop I like better than Kit Kat. For all the at least year long hoopla about Lollipop it's a complete fail to me. I agree w/ the OP that it's the worst OS I've ever used on a phone.

    The issue MUST be you. I have had no problems with my Note 4 on WIND Mobile here in Toronto. None of these problems you claim to be having. So you must have the bad ion or something. If you really hate the OS that much then go back to owning a Blackberry then. I have been a Blackberry user since the days when the blue phone was popular and if you think Blackberry is better well then you are wrong. The Z10 and Q10 devices were garbage, even our clients (I work for an MSP) thought they were garbage that they went with iPhone and Samsung devices.

    I see what you are saying about the larger notifications. I get those for Facebook so I am going to look to see if I can just get them in the notification bar. Anyway, here is a screenshot of my calender settings. I don't get any notifications on my lock screen.
