    I just finished the upgrade at work. Phone feels snappier and seems like it's using less memory upon reboot. When I rebooted, I was below 2gb when usually I'm over. Time will tell though.

    I also did a wipe cache partition and cleared cache after the update.

    Anyone know how to disable the notification pop up to the old style where it just shows up in the notification bar?

    What is the general consensus about whether you should clear your cache after installing an update? Is it recommended?
    I always do a factory reset after any firmware update and always happy ๐Ÿ˜„ I did.

    I feel if you're jumping from 5.0.1 then a factory reset wouldn't be really needed unless you end up with some major headaches. If you're jumping from Kit Kat then I would highly recommend a FDR. I had a few issues when jumping into lollipop and an FDR solved most issues for me.

    Just finished downloading and installing here in Colorado. Got my fingers crossed this fixes some things.

    Can't believe how snappier and faster everything seems! Seems like a new phone! I'm mad we were left hanging for so long on what was obviously a half baked 5.0 update. This thing kills again.

    Wow, huge improvement! I also changed the animation speed to 0.5x in Developer Options and this phone feels super quick.

    How is it going from camera to gallery? Currently (without update) it's super laggy for me

    I've not had a problem either before or after the 5.1.1 update.
    I agree with others that response time seems peppier and my household wi-fi can be sluggish - far from the phone.

    It still sucks for me. Definitely not as bad as 5.0.1, but there is lag. I didn't measure the lag but it's noticeable enough to complain about.

    I've been noticing how instant it is on different people's s6. Feeling jealous. I don't even try anymore.

    Camera to gallery transition has ways been slow for me but it seems to have been halved in my opinion.

    Are you saving to an micro sd card or to the internal memory? Could you possibly, if saving to the card, have a very slow card?

    I actually swapped cards recently and it still lags between transitions.

    The update bricked my Verizon Note 4. It's locked up on the update screen and will not reboot. Off to the Verizon store I go, love it...

    ...and you have your settings for photos so that images should go to the card?
    I'm out of suggested fixes - hopefully someone else will come up with a fix for you.

    So are you saving directly to phone and you experience no lag?

    I have not tried to save direct to phone. I did contemplate saving to phone then transferring when needed but it seems so tedious to have to do that all the time.

    I just tested it. It's a 2-3 second lag for still photos saving to card or phone. Same lag.

    If I do burst (which saves to phone automatically) it's like 5-6 seconds lag

    I'm still on 5.0.1

    I don't consider 2-3 seconds a lot of lag! You should see the lag when I do a burst of pictures in my digital cameras!
    If you set your images to a smaller size they will transfer faster.
    I save to my card.
