    Sammobile has always been very reliable concerning updates.

    "According to our highly placed sources, Samsung is planning to release Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update to the Galaxy Note 4 by the end of July. As usual, we will be the first ones to show you the upcoming ROM running on the actual device."

    Unfortunately, if Samsung does the staged roll out and the US carriers have to approve US Note 4 owners most likely will not see this until the 4th quarter if that soon. I do hope I am wrong.

    They are getting quicker. They rolled out lollipop for the S5 in December, it would have been here for AT&T in January. They had some issues in testing and we got it in March.

    I'm almost afraid of another update. I got lucky with lollipop, none of the problems that others experienced. Battery life is still great.

    That's good news. The GSMArena story that cites the Sammobile report indicated the update would be for "bug fixes and performance improvements".

    Yup, I'm ready for an update. I don't have any issues but I'm hoping maybe there will be a couple of tweaks on some features.

    I just wish Sammy hadn't taken away the multiuser support in Lollipop. I'd love to have an entirely separate account on my phone for my corporate email. That way I could use the fingerprint reader to secure my regular account, and a password to check corporate stuff.

    Maybe they'll finally put that in with 5.1.x?

    I think I'd just like to see the updated, lighter version of TouchWiz.

    I would like more control over my phone, not less. We are all losing more and more control over our phones lately.

    Do you think Samsung will give us the overhauled tw in gs6 with 5.1.1?

    Like themes feature, new camera api, users, uninstallable bloat etc.

    I doubt it. Last I heard there wasn't any effort to get themes to the N4.

    Sad.

    Design of some areas of tw is very old fashioned. Especially incoming and outgoing calls screen is downright disgusting. Changing blacks with whites ist a solution IMO. Just look how apple implemented a modern looking and clutter free call interface.

    I was hoping at least with themes it could be bearable.

    I am ready to flash cyanogen or whatever stock os whenever it is available for exynos chipsets.

    You realize carriers have to test the ROM before they release it, and if for whatever reason there is an issue with it they'll need to get Samsung to fix it, then they'll retest it again...so what I am saying is there is a process to the releasing of the ROM to when it's actually pushed down to the devices by the carriers.

    I hope this helps performance. If the new Nexus has a camera a third of as good as this phone, I'm getting rid of this immediately..... unless this update fixes issues and then I'm gonna contemplate sticking w/ it solely b/c of the camera and pen

    Yes I know exactly how they do this. I've been upgrading my Samsung phones since Eclair.

    The carriers already have 5.1 and are testing it. Samsung releases it to the carriers immediately for them to do their thing to it.

    I'm not sure what it is you are trying to say.

    The Nexus 6 camera isn't that bad. I put a couple of comparative pics. It's a lot of saturation on the Samsung, but that's totally editable with most any app. It's not AS sharp, but it's way better than 1/3 xD haha.

    Yes, but a carrier hardly ever releases it before Samsung themselves. Why? Because Samsung --> carrier testing (this alone takes time, as each carrier has to test multiple devices... Could take weeks. --> back to Samsung --> back to carrier --> Back to Samsung --> Back to carrier, accepted. Released to Samsung --> OK on server --> To users.

    While, unlocked devices: Samsung testing, OK... --> OK to update server --> to users.

    Never said the carrier would release it before Samsung. Carriers get the releases out more quickly now, especially when it is a release to the current versions not and not a new firmware.

    I was mainly speaking in low light performance. Day time pics are easy lol. Moto low light pics are awful and the N6 is no different. This camera destroys every other phone in low lights. It's extremely impressive. The Moto X was my phone before this one and it was by far the best phone I've owned w/ one huge exception. The camera blew w/ any light that wasn't sunshine or comparable settings lol.

    Since LG and Huewai are supposedly making the next devices, and they went premium last year, I have no reason to believe that these won't come equipped w/ a solid shooter

    Have you considered the LG G4? That has a superb camera. I find the note 4 camera lacking... I guess everything is after trying a Lumia 930 and 1520. The note 4 by no means is a bad camera. Just the not superb lighting shots are very lackluster...

    I am not a camera person with my phones but I will only admit they do make great point and shoot devices, that I would never expect a cell phone company to make a "perfect" camera for a cell phone or a point and shoot camera as it would be in direct competition of the DSLR camera's.

    I have contemplated the LG4, yes. I will wait for a couple of months after it's release to decide there b/c I do like what they have to offer. The Nexus program just intrigues me though. Maybe I'm spoiled w/ this phone b/c of how bad the Moto X camera was but I find this camera to be superior to all others I've seen. Granted, I've never used a Windows phone before.

    LOL Well yeah, I don't expect this to be a DSLR lol but a point and shoot? Absolutely.

    There is no camera that can compete with a DSLR. Not even my point and shoot... Let alone a device that does a million other things besides taking pictures...
