    I am going to stave off that update as long as possible. The last one screwed up my phone so badly I had to wipe it and restore it twice.

    I went ahead with this one. Restarted just fine, but within hours my Note 4 was restarting up to 5 times an hour. I tried wiping the partition, but ended up having to fully factory reset and reconfigure everything [again]. God forbid you call Verizon for help as they standardly will say "you have a LOT of apps....it's definitely one of them causing this- get rid of all of them and load them back one by one..."
    Sigh. Back in business again here. Same apps...working fine after hours of work to reconfigure email clients, social media, ringtones, notifications, wallpaper, smart locks, etc etc etc.

    I've not allowed it to install yet. What is the version # after the update?

    Are the items below all that is included (from Verizon's pdf about the update)?

    "The following enhancements have been made
    · 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."

    I don;t see anything else. I do like the last one as it is hard to find the Galaxy App Store and get necessities like Samsung Gear Manager if you have a Gear S etc.

    Update went smooth for me. I use my Note 4 as my alarm clock, so I was happy to see the "100% charged" banner disappear. No more bright banner that must be swiped away in the middle of the night.

    Mine still has to be swiped away. I mean, it will go away on it's own, eventually, but.

    This phone can still be reverted to KitKat.
    Also, if you want to avoid OTA, you can disable Knox and OTA... read this thread...

    [GUIDE] Disable Knox and the OTA without roo… | Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 | XDA Forums

    Note that in the first sentence of that thread, there is a link to Debloater for doing the same thing on Lollipop.

    There is also a "safe" upgrade to OF1 via ODIN that will allow you to revert to OAF or KitKat. If you take OF1 and updates via OTA, you won't be able to revert back to anything! Link...

    If you find any of these threads hard to follow, just ask questions in the threads.

    There's a thread on this. Some say it just takes longer. I use palm-swipe so no issue for me.

    Battery life seems to be noticeably worse since update for me. Time for another cache wipe
