    Received a software update notification. Has anyone tried installing it yet?

    Is it going to brick the phone?

    Just installed the update on my Verizon N5 and it runs just a fast and fluid as before.

    I applied it. No issues so far. Looks like security updates.

    Downloading now. Any word on what it is? My wife received the security update on her S6 a couple of days ago. I thinking this is the same.

    As far as I can tell the update seems to have fixed a signal problem I was having that was causing battery life to suffer.

    I just got this update too. Looks like it was just a security update.

    My battery life was great already.. If they mess with that and make it worse I'll be pissed. But my signal was terrible this past weekend so if they did sneak a signal fix in, I'll be happy. Better Security is typically a good thing.

    No noticeable difference between before and after update, as far as I can tell.

    Why would a software upgrade brick your phone? I highly doubt it's a common occurrence.

    The battery drain on mine seems unchanged. However, when connected to wifi my applications don't seem to update until I go into the application.

    For instance, whatsapp will be silent for 30 minutes so I go into it to send a message and I suddenlly get 5 messages with time stamps spuratic during the the time I was off the phone.

    I had this problem on my Note 4, but haven't had it at all until this update yesterday afternoon on my Note 5.

    Also today, my phone thought that I had no SIM Card installed. I had to reboot to get it to work again. Just a little while ago I was floating between 4G and 1x to no data at all from Verizon.

    Thoughts?
