    I always have mine plugged in when updating. It didn't take very long for mine to update. My Note 4 is definitely running faster and smoother than it was before. I always wipe the cache partition after an update. I've never had to do a factory reset. Maybe it's because I haven't downloaded a lot of applications. I really can't say.

    I was getting ready for bed when I saw the update. I plugged it I and just let it go.
    I us due with FB anymore and the camera lag is MUCH improved.

    The update keeps failing after it finishes downloading.. =/
    Mine does the same thing. It downloads he 600MB+ file, then it reboots, seems to enter the software download system but then reboots again before installing. I get a message that the update failed.

    Been through this twice in the early AM of 10-10. Even downloaded Smart Switch on my Windows 7 PC but seems the update hasn't gotten there yet (OC6).

    Silly thing to ask because I'm sure you guys know this, but if you're doing it OAT, is it plugged in?
    Or I could just be wrong.

    Yep. Plugged in every time. Could be a corrupted download giving a false completion. We will try 1 one more time: plugged in and jumping 5 days on the current day. (DM Server says I have to wait 89 hours).

    Well, I tried again. The phone pretty much bumping the router.

    Set the date to 10/14 (so the DM allowed checking), downloaded the file, the phone restarted to installation: BOOM! Error at 0%

    Darn!

    I was hoping the update would have the themes but it doesn't. I don't really see anything different appearance-wise.

    Hey guys, I had to set-up a new account because my old one was messed-up so this is in essence my first post all over again.

    Anyway, question. I just last week enabled full disk encryption on my device as well as encryption for the SD card. Will the update to 5.1.1 mess with the encryption/files at all?

    If I have to, I guess I can decrypt, update, then re-encrypt however I'd like to not do that if I can help it since it will take forever just to decrypt the SD alone.

    Does anyone know the answer to this. I believe it will be OK however, I'm not an expert and would like someone with more knowledge to chime in. Thanks guys.

    **EDIT - I'm playing it safe and am decrypting both the device and the SD card since I won't be able to update until tonight when I'm in range of WiFi however, if anyone has any knowledge of the encryption/update process, I'd still love to hear it.**

    I wonder how this will work using an AT&T Note on Cricket? Now I'll be wondering if I am just late in the rollout or if it won't update at all without an AT&T sim.

    Mine downloaded the update while i was sleeping and i accepted once i woke up.

    Overall the phone feels much faster and snappy like when i first got it, before Kitkat. The only visual change i have noticed thus far is to the notifications menu and border. I was really hoping the battery issue would be addressed but Im not seeing any changes in that regard so far. With moderate usage, I could get my Note 4 to last me two days without charging when I first got the Phone. I will cross my fingers for marshmallow. How is everyone else doing with battery life?

    Overall this is a relief, I didn't want to upgrade to the note 5 and loose my expandable memory and changeable battery, but the bugs where starting to drive me nuts. Much happier with my note 4 for now.

    If you're expecting different appearance, you're in bad luck. This update only helps us by improving the sluggishness from 5.0.1 and ram management.

    I contacted Samsung to see if Smart Switch or Kies were getting update anytime soon since I have failed twice in OTA. They said they didn't have the update available yet and suggested I have the Samsung help desk at my local Best Buy reflash my ROM. But I'm going to attempt a 3rd time, because I did have a lot of "turn off" at&t bloatware. Hopefully that caused an issue with the update, which it hasn't caused issues Prior updates.

    I have to wait another 11 hours before I can recheck updates.

    I ended up changing my phone date to get the download again, but it failed again so the bloatware being turned off or on made no difference.

    someone had said to clear your cach data in your settings>storage i tried 3 times before and just did it a 4th time where i had cleared the data and it worked. and yeah you will have to go in to time/day settings and change your date to X hours that the prompt gives you.

    I did the update last night. It took a really long time to update on WiFi at home here. Once it downloaded, I let it run and now the phone does seem much faster. That's all I noticed. I haven't really had any problems with THIS phone on Lollipop, but it's a Warranty Replacement, since my original phone was randomly dropping Calls all of a sudden and had heating issues. Now everything is running nice a smooth. My last one was running smooth On Lollipop, until the dropped calls started happening. The overheating didn't start until the Lollipop update though.
