    In general the phone is so snappy and smooth, I love it. But my hands down favorite feature is Smart Lock. To not have to unlock my phone every 10 minutes is marvelous!!

    For smart lock, your location needs to be on all the time for it to work?

    My location is on all the time anyway, but I Bluetooth my smart lock to my gear fit watch.

    I see ok. Another benefit of having a gear fit hehe. Is there a way for smart lock to work via trusted networks. Like if it's connected to my home wifi it disables lock?

    +1 for smart lock. Really useful with car bluetooth as a safe location too.

    Smart lock for sure! Always have my LG tones with me and linked. Find that location doesn't seem to work very well.

    For my location to work well, I use the default location that the app finds automatically. If I enter my street address manually, it doesn't work.

    It's a feature that you can setup to have safe locations and/or peripheral like bluetooth or NFC. When you are in those locations, you don't have to unlock your phone, like at home or in your car for example. Some use this with their headphones or smart watches so when it's connected to the phone, you don't have to unlock it to get in.

    The gear watch is awesome and it only cost me $100. Between it and my husband's phone tracking me on GPS, I was able to get a store clerk to change his or her mind about going home with my phone after I stupidly had it fall out of my cart by accident. And now it keeps my phone unlocked. It's an amazing device.

    As for your question, I don't think Smart Lock works with networks.

    MrCil20 explained the Smart Lock and I will say again it is awesome. If you don't want to unlock your phone all day long, try it.

    It works with network location, just make sure you use what Google maps detects. Doesn't work well if I type my home address manually.

    any particular reason why your husband is tracking you by GPS?

    There are a number of us who track each other on Locations. It's a nice tool, unless you are out doing things you are not supposed to be doing, lol.

    overall the phone appears to be running smoother and faster on Lollipop. I also like the improved Samsung UI. It's now less ugly....

    I really like the Smart Lock feature. It works great with my Bluetooth headset all day but the location setting isn't working for me. It detects my home address just fine but will continue to lock. I hope it will be updated to work with wifi SID as an option. I think that would work much better.

    Anyone else have any luck with the location settings?

    Edit: So, I did a little more research here on AC and found a workaround for the home location. It seems if you select your neighbors address (if close) as another trusted location it will work. Looks like the home location is a known issue, if not for Google, at least for our educated AC family.

    I also had to add a 2nd "Home" location to get it to work so it seems like a bug. It's worked consistently for the last 3 days at home and has always worked in my truck as I added my bluetooth connection as a Trusted Device.

    Smart Lock is a great feature.
