    The Note 4 got upgraded to Marshmallow a few days/weeks ago. Now, the phone has ALWAYS been laggy, but this is a new level of slow. Not only does the phone take several seconds to launch apps, but it sometimes just straight up refuses to do certain things. Like, for example, this morning I was in an absolute emergency trying to find a car shop while on the road, and I needed GPS to find my way over there, but in Google Maps when I clicked the search bar to type the name of the place, it simply refused to even load the keyboard. I was clicking in the search bar over and over again but the keyboard did not even show up. The app was not even lagging or anything. So I force closed the Application and then restarted it, everything worked fine (albeit slow, and with GPS issues...). Otherwise, things like the Messaging app are extremely slow. The camera is now much slower. The Gallery literally has to buffer my images to display them. Sometimes, I come back from doing something and pick up my phone, only to discover that something has caused it to, I guess, 'overload,' and force it to reboot. That is just preposterous.
    I'm sick of this crap. I moved to a 6s a while ago but returned it due to how restricting iOS is (very restricting), but after dealing with a phone that is barely usable because of some update that is supposed to make it better, I think it may be time to abandon Android for good. I can't believe this. Such a waste of electronics, and it's in such good condition. It's just the software (buggy Android) that really kills the experience. If anyone is having Marshmallow issues, please let me know some fixes (I've already cleared the cache partition, and a reset is not an option). I'm trying to hold out for the iPhone 7 in September. Can't wait to ditch this piece of garbage, but I need it for the interim.Thanks everyone

    Unfortunately, an eventual factory reset may be necessary. However, first, you could try Safe Mode to see if it's an app that's incompatible with MM.

    I certainly agree with your sentiments about updates messing stuff up instead of making things better.

    Can you first clear cache of the device? The Note 4 is not that a slow device as standard and it absolutely flies on Marshmallow, and I also own the 6s Plus which is a very fast device, so I'm talking about a fast Note in a proper context.

    Oops I missed the part where you already cleared cache. Then a reset will have to do.
