    Amazed to see this is still an issue with some folks.

    I posted this video 6 months ago to show there is very minimal Camera - Gallery lag on my Note 4. The subject came up on how slow the Note 4 was compared to the Note 5. When I compared my phone with a Note 5 in Bestbuy, I couldn't decide which was faster. In the video, you can tell how fast the gallery launches when the icons at the top of the screen change. Also note that I purposely showed there were no recent apps running, which means the camera and gallery weren't already in ram.

    I think any lag you might be seeing is caused by syncing or some such thing. You might try turning off any gallery sync and testing your phone again. Or, if you plan to do a factory reset after your MM update, test it before you install/update any apps, or turn on sync... at the very least, you'll be able to tell if your phone is actually lagging.

    Still takes up to 3 seconds sometimes for me. Maybe synching with Google photos is the reason why. But for a long time it surely wasn't. Have to check it out again.

    I hate having a crowded notification bar but I guess I'll get used to it.. Maybe if enough people complain the next update will remove it

    I use Nova and hide my notification bar. But it is completely stupid and was unpopular when Verizon did it.

    I've never once forgotten who I pay bills to every month and need to be reminded every time I look down at my screen.

    Using the S-Pen with Gmail now results in a smaller window that doesn't provide adequate room to write (if you have a signature block).

    Is it possible to get the full-screen window back?

    Is the 'dark' mode now available to get rid of the battery killing and blinding white backgrounds? It was mentioned as a marshmallow feature after hey killed it for lollipop. Haven't got my update notification yet and the lack of bug reports is promising.

    Here is my Pros and Cons List.. I would go back to Lollipop if I could right now.

    PROS
    • I do like the look of the new icons
    • Customization of Air command
    • Screen off memo



    CONS

    • Fingerprint scanner is not as useful anymore. If you restart or turn your phone off, you have to use your backup password to unlock your phone. I use last pass for my passwords and it no longer allow me to use fingerprint security. I have to use a pin or application password.
    • Formula match in S Finder the Wolfram Alpha search function is gone. S Finder seems to be less functional in general.
    • Permissions for applications is becoming a nuisance

    Idling battery usage appears to have dropped significantly under Marshmallow. An unused phone sitting overnight was draining about 4% and now it appears to be 1% or less.

    Performance seems improved.

    Irritating that external storage (SD card) was renamed, killing Poweramp playlists for music stored on the card. DropSync synch folders had to be updated for the name change. Audible app had downloaded media stored on the card and was also affected by the name change as were apps accessing photos there.

    I'm looking for it on the Verizon version. I'm still on 5.1.1 that was updated in January which is sad. This Note is the last of its kind it seems, unless Note 6 brings it back.

    I just received my 910C variant today and am in love with it. My question is, when will the update be available for me, and where will I download from? It's the international unlocked version but I'm on AT&T's network.

    No theme store. They want to sell their new phones with this kind of stuff. It's ridiculous!

    I'm in the UK using the International unlocked handset, no news as yet but there again it only seems to be Sprint who have released it, which could mean the carriers have the update but are tweaking it for their own needs.
    Gone are the days when the unlocked unbranded handsets got the update first I'm afraid.
