    I just hate the way those upgrades are being pushed. What is the point of having some customers wait a month longer than others? And yes I know I can use other ROM and ****, but that is besides the point...

    Anyone see some system in the madness?

    I live in Norway and belong to the NEE region by the way..

    According to a site that claims to have live listing of the updates, it looks like many countries already has it in Europe. Just a few select ones still waiting. But what we are waiting for I do lot know.

    Nope.

    But everyone from Romania to Sweden has...

    I am planning a factory reset when i update. This makes the waiting even worse. What is the point of spending g time setting the phone up when I'm going to reset it?

    Hope it comes soon cuz my chocolate is melting fast...

    You can take mine......it came to my Verizon Note 4 day before yesterday and I have been holding it off! I really don't want it, but inevitably it will automatically install after a certain amount of rejections! Urgh, my Note 4 is running soooooo smoothly the way it is!

    I really dislike Apple, but this is the only area where they got it right...screw the carriers...EVERYONE gets the update, and EVERYONE can choose whether to download it or not.

    I did it ! Using Odin to install German version of Lollipop. Soooooo easy. Recommend it if you are as sick of waiting for Samsung to get their ducks in a row as I am...

    Not yet done factory reset, but haven't found any reason for it, as it simply works...

    Have you tried it? What is being crippled? My battery is as good or better, I have zero bugs, a new S Health among others. Know what ypu are doing, and it is all good.

    But if you are against progress, I suggest you get yourself some kind of iCrap...

    I just upgraded from an S5 to the Note 4. I had updated to Lollipop on the S5 and wished I didn't. I plan on waiting as long as I can before updating my Note. My biggest complaint is that they took away the ability for app/widgets to toggle data on and off. No more battery saving apps. I use myprofiles to change settings for if I am work or home or driving. There is very poor coverage in my office and being able to toggle data on and off with a profile is key. Lollipop removes that so now I can either leave data on and kill my battery while the phone searches for a signal or I can go thru 4-5 settings just to turn it off and then I need to remember to turn it back on when I get in the car. I also use Automateitpro which can't toggle it or Tasker can't either. You can have Lollipop, I don't want it.

    look for the the thread labeled "Battery saver app to disable mobile data not working with Lollipop" for other info.

    Finally someone with actual facts. Thanks to you sir.

    I have never hadd any problems with battery on my S4+ or Note 4. That being said it took its toll on my S4 using an android wear watch. Have been using a Gear S watch with constant BT, mobile net speed reduced one notch down from 4G on account of bad reception here. I have more than enough data speed even with this setting for the day to day use.

    I just do not understand what ppl complain about. I recharge every night, and for me to have to recharge during the day I must really abuse the phone. And I am not one that passes on YouTube, streaming music etc to save battery. After all I got this device to use it, not to constantly go half power or miss out on things because the battery is not good enough. Because what it comes down to in 80% of complaints to Lollipop it is about battery.

    Any how thanks for the input, and that you share some experience to back up your claims.

    I had an iToy 6 before no thanks..... hated that it throws everything in Camera roll and it takes an engineering degree in rocket science just to be able to transfer songs from my computer to the iToy 6

    with that said, yes I am using lollicrap, and have done a cache clear / factory reset via the advanced menu.....it isn't that bad but it isn't as smooth either and I cannot get 2 days of battery life anymore as I did with Kitty Kat

    Same here! Better disable that OTA updater (like I did) before it becomes mandatory (link below). Takes all of about five minutes and can be reversed if you change your mind. As the Scott's lawn guy says, "Do it!" No regrets here. My Note 4 still works great on KitKat!

    Thank you, but I am afraid to do things like that! I know, I'm a chicken... A rep I go through at Costco yesterday (he's actually the manager of the VZW kiosk) told me that I should be able to defer the update as long as I want.... I didn't think he was correct though.... and perhaps not, because I actually showed him how to clear the cache partition to make his display phones that received Lollipop run faster. Those phones were giving him lots of trouble! He was like, "WOW", that worked so well! " LOL, and I am a complete amateur! Thanks AC members for all I learn from all of you!

    My benchmarking tests increased 10 percent, my battery life is better, and the whole phone responds more quickly. I did the factory reset. Some people spend more time whining about having to do the factory reset after the update than it would take to just do the factory reset... I really didn't want to upgrade either, and even posted a thread about how long I would be able to push it off. But then I had a free evening, and decided to go ahead with the inevitable :-) resistance is futile... You will be assimilated - the Borg

    I understand. Guess I take this stuff for granted working in IT and being familiar with zip and bat files. But even so it was so easy (a cave man could do it! ). I didn't install any Samsung drivers for Windows. Just downloaded the zip file, extracted it to the bat file, enabled Developer options (by tapping it three times under settings), enabled USB debugging, connected the phone to PC, then ran the bat file. Done. Easy peasy! Haven't seen an OTA update notice since.
    Thanks again... If I get brave enough to try it, I appreciate the instruction and encouragement!

    I have both of these toggles in the top bar pull down menu. Is this what you're talking about?

    Sadly I was stupid enough to actually get Lollipop on my S5. It's ugly and sluggish. KitKat was so much better. And what makes it worse is that there is *apparently* no way to downgrade to KitKat at the moment on the AT&T S5. Good news though, Lollipop is NOT draining my battery, nor is it overheating my phone. But still... Sucks.
