    I have checked several times, since I read here about the update. I just checked again, and it says "temporarily unavailable."

    My phone was more responsive, less laggy and had slightly improved battery life when I updated and wiped the cache partition last week. Yesterday I factory reset the phone and it's even better.
    Agree completely. Even if you do nothing other than update you'll probably see an improvement. Even better if you wipe the cache or do a factory reset.

    Personally, I still prefer KitKat.
    I logged in just to like this! LOL! Still on KK myself and it's still the bomb! My Note 10.1 (2014) is still on KK too. I'm going to leave both alone until I have no choice.

    Smooth as silk, zero lag except for the photo gallery when opening from the camera
    If I remember correctly, the lag from camera to gallery comes from a sync setting somewhere. Sorry, can't exactly remember which setting. Here's a demo I uploaded to Vimeo a while back. There is very minimal lag on my phone. I don't use the cloud, so there is no syncing on my phone. This is how my camera to gallery works all the time.

    After this upgrade, I have this weird pop-up box with the name of the ring tone when someone calls me. It actually covers the answer or reject area so I can't select it.
    Anyone else have this and find a workaround?

    Has anyone else seen an improvement in memory management with 5.1.1?

    Mine is better, but I've still seen it top out at 2.2GB or so.

    Me too, and I seem to be able to only have 4-5 apps in memory at a time

    I'll be buying a new battery from Anker soon and doing a factory reset. That should make it way better.

    I never got the notification that there was an update. I had to manually go into settings and download it.

    I have been busy and not out here lately, but came out this morning because I got the notification of the update. I am installing now.

    I do not have a lot of faith in Samsung at this point, so I hope I am pleasantly surprised by this update.

    So far so good. The phone does seem snappier and I do have to say this is probably the first update ever in my own phone history that I do not feel like I need to do a factory reset. It does not seem to have messed anything up. Not sure yet if there is any improvement with the battery. I am pretty hard on my batteries, so I am not expecting much, but a little extra battery life would be nice. Getting rid of the lag will be a huge relief for me, as there have been times I have wanted to throw the phone out the window.

    The only problem I've noticed is when I lock the screen, it will sometimes open an app on my home screen by itself. So when I unlock it, an app I didn't touch is open. Kinda annoying but not a huge deal. Except when it's my flashlight

    It's minor, lol. But I also have this on my Samsung Galaxy Go Prime with AT&T. It runs 5.1.1 out of the box flawlessly. I usually average 4 hours and 30 mins sot throughout my day. But when I have more free time and I'm really using the phone, I can get 6 hours and 30 mins sot. Which I believe is great for a midrange phone. And battery life is amazing too. So for this being off topic with the phone model at least.

    Still no update here (Verizon). Kies says that my software is up to date. I'll keep checking!

    No notification prompt.

    Queried, downloaded & installed myownself.

    Lots snappier; checked it out (Bluetooth, etc.) - no probs; works well so far.

    EDIT: Hmmm. Whacked my Kindle login, trashed my latest Kindle book. Logged-in, downloaded book again, all is well.

    No... Mine is running tight without any issues. I also did a factory reset and cache wipe... I have to say, with the exception of the ANNOYING VERIZON in the upper left hand corner that serves No purpose whatsoever other than to acknowledge to the people, that there was no UI thought involved.... Aside from that, I've been happy with the update..
