    I hope so. This is pretty much the only thing preventing me from upgrading.

    Does anybody know if there is a way to bring them back if the phone is rooted?

    Note 4 ever!

    Here it is:
    1. Battery life is good (comparable to Kitkat)
    2. Random Wifi disconnects happen less frequent with Lollipop.
    3. Interface is virtually identical to Kitkat
    4. You'll have a new kind of notification system, where e.g. messages will show at the top of the screen, hovering over whatever it is you're doing (particularly annoying if you're playing a game and need to tap something on the upper-part of the screen, as tapping on the message will open the message-system)
    5. The email-app (not to be confused with the gmail app , which is something else) has a bug: when you type a reply, want to correct a typo and tap back to where you were, you'll automatically go all the way down to the very end of the email. It's really hard to get back to where you left off.
    6. On the lock-screen you'll lose the controls of Google Play Music. You'll still see the cover-art on the lock screen if something is playing (or pausing).
    7. On the lock-screen, you won't see the type of notifications you had. That part is covered by your carrier-name. Apparently you need a (paid) app or rooted phone to get rid of it.

    Bottom line: you'll be having Google's latest but the upgrade is really a downgrade in my eyes. I've gone back to Kitkat and will upgrade once the bugs are fixed (hopefully in the 5.1 update).

    I agree, I just posted this in another thread, my worst issues with the update

    Lollipop did these nice things for me....

    Nova Launcher crashes all the time
    I can't use widget locker and have NILS individual notifications on my lockscreen anymore, can't find a good alternative so stuck with stock lockscreen and having to tap to expand everytime instead of just looking at the phone and seeing while I'm driving
    Some of my favorite widgets now crash
    Even had touchwiz launcher crashed a few times, requiring a battery pull-restart.
