    Probably just the security patch, how big is the update?

    Couldn't tell. Not huge, didn't take more than maybe 10 min to download. 20 to install

    Question......I have been deferring the Lollipop update for over a month now, by hitting install later every day! If a new update comes through for this security patch, will they be listed as separate updates? Or if I let it update, will it bundle and download Lollipop as well?

    Really?! My VZW Note 4 doesn't specifically say anything about what the update is, just a general security update. No mention of Stagefright anywhere.

    I'm curious about what performance improvements you see...

    I read where a Verizon user accepted the "Stagefright" security update, then ran the Stagefright Detector and it said he was still vulnerable. Upon reading that I did more research. Discovered that the patch is only good if you're on 5.1.1. - VZW Note 4 users are not, so what good is the patch?

    Anybody else have any related info on this?

    I also came across this RUMOR on another thread: "...note 4 users will be skipping 5.1.1 and straight to android M 5.2..." but I've seen that Sprint rolled out 5.1.1 to Note 4.

    Anyone have any insight into what VZW might do?

    I'm pretty sure that all OTA updates I've received through Verizon has stated that.

    I think Verizon uses the term performance as in "performs", or "works better". When the term performance is used, I think of "faster, no lag, more responsive..."

    Like laxarambula mentions, the term "performance" appears to be a blanket term that Verizon uses. In this particular case, Verizon should probably could pick a more descriptive term or statement like "more secure".

    All,I was being facetious, but thanks for the replies and interest! Verizon should really issue a small blurb or email or something prior to an update

    I received the stage fright update on my note 4. Although it's on T-Mobile, I've actually noticed a performance boost. My phone seems to be a lot more spiffy.

    Two questions:

    1. What version of Lollipop are you on: 5.01, 5.0.2, or 5.1.1? The 5.1.1 could be the reason for your perceived improvement. Just sayin'...
    2. If you're not up to 5.1.1 yet, have you run the StageFright Detector yet? I'd be curious if Samsung's patch worked for anyone on versions below 5.1.1. So far I've seen all negatives - that it didn't close the vulnerability unless the OS was 5.1.1.

    Thanks

    It's still at 5.01. I don't know. I was getting frustrated with the lag. After this update its almost non existent.

    Since I couldn't seem to get a definitive answer with proof in this thread or other threads here about whether this update was for Stagefright or not, I have proof it is in fact for Stagefright and DOES fix it on phones on VZW running Lollipop 5.0.1. Screenshots from my Note 4 before and after.
