    I downloaded the update possibly as an excuse to factory reset the phone to get rid of this horrid lag I have from time to time.

    Here's an excerpt from that AC article:
    Verizon has only listed a few small additions.

    • Fingerprint for EAS Authentication - adds fingerprint as a device security lock option while an Exchange Active Sync (EAS) account is active on the device.
    • Add Milk Music as preload on home screen.
    • Galaxy Apps Auto Install - triggers Galaxy Apps to install when user signs into Samsung Account for the first time.

    Since I do not use Fingerprint, that's okay

    There is a logo of the letter M in my apps drawer, so I'm assuming it's the Milk Music. It's not on my home screen which is good.

    The Auto Install is disabled and I do mine manually.

    Also during the update I noticed a window that stated [ Optimizing app ### of 293 ]. Will see how the "optimizing" of apps fare in the seconds, minutes, days, weeks, months ahead.

    So far to me the software feels the same. There is only minor changes. The dialer has lines perpendicular. Some apps look rounded like th pen up app. Other than that nothing really major. Besides what the gentleman said right above me☝

    One major problem I have is after taking a pic from the lock screen, quick launch shortcut, if I choose to review it, it takes (no joke) about 10 seconds to show me the picture. The lag is that bad..... and it still is. Amazes me how a phone w/ these specs can be so laggy and awful.

    It's time to factory reset I think which sucks. Shouldn't have to do this after having the phone for only 5 months.

    Interesting. Here I've been taking a few shots here and there from locked screen, and with the S-View Flip Case also then accessing the review mode, but I'm not experiencing the "10 seconds" lag. Hopefully yours will get resolved.

    Maybe do a reset with your phone. I'm not having any issues at all. Except that my battery life is draining faster lol

    I have the same issue now. Don't bother doing a factory reset; I did and it doesn't make a difference.

    It's a shame because this phone sits on a table collecting dust while I use other phones that, you know, actually are responsive.

    That's pretty disheartening it doesn't help. I'm still going to perform one anyway b/c Kies makes it super easy to backup and restore so it's worth a shot although I know I'll have to do some tweaks to get my phone back to how it is now. If it doesn't work, then yeah, this phone is gone. I'll sell it to someone else when something I want comes out and let it be their problem.

    Again, w/ these specs, it's insane this phone isn't the best on the market. The only thing that is might just be the camera which is very important to me and one of the main reasons I got the device. I'll more than likely be done w/ Sammy altogether.

    Thanks for letting me know. Now I can mentally prepare myself for nothing to change at least lol

    I did try and it did help. It's in the midst of getting everything updated as far as apps are concerned. Kies makes it so easy. I'm very happy about that.

    I haven't got the phone back 100% to how it was before but I did test it out and it takes 2 seconds which is substantially better than 10 and again, I was not fabricating that lol. We'll see how long it lasts. I have very little faith in Sammy right now.

    Does FoxFi still work after this update? I got the notification this morning, but haven't updated because I don't want to lose FoxFi.

    Can you confirm Foxfi still works after update? I like to hear more than one person say it before I commit. No offense.
