    Just adding my two cents worth. I got my Note 5 completely backed up, both in the Cloud and on my computer, then ran the upgrade Monday, 3-7-16. I did not do a factory reset. It's been about 24 hours now and so far, everything is working fine. I've already noticed a considerably better battery life. The only app problem I've encountered is with Amazon Kindle Reader, which won't bring up the book I'm reading after closing the phone. I had to close and open the book and the reader several times before it would finally display the book. I finally solved the problem by uninstalling the Kindle updates with the Apps Manager and then reinstalling Kindle from the Amazon Appstore.

    I don't really understand the need to now swipe the lock screen before I can use my password gesture. If one is using a password to access the device, forcing us to also swipe the screen is superfluous, IMO.

    Update is good for me, except two things... My group messages take forever to download when both wifi and mobile data are on and my battery drains a bit faster.. Had a 29 % drain last night after a full charge. Didn't do a factory reset and would like to avoid that. Anyone have any ideas how to fix the mms issue? If just seems like 4g won't kick in in a lot of places

    The calculator is broken! It doesn't do percentages anymore?... 132 + 8.875% = 132.08875 WTF?!

    After update I'm getting an "Update Google Play Services" notification. When I tap on it, it opens the google play store and begins the scrolling bar to update. But nothing ever happens. Until it eventually times out.

    I've restarted the phone about three times and can't get it to update. Anyone else having this issue?

    I had the same problem, what worked for me was to uninstall updates for Google Play Services, then update. That took care of the isssue for me.

    You have to swipe the screen before it will let you use your Fingerprint? This has not happened to me at all. Maybe there is a setting that's messed up? Very strange.

    Not to use fingerprint, before you use your password

    After upgrading from 5 to 6 I ran my phone without a Factory Reset and it was working fine. It did have a few minor details that were a bit weird but nothing substantial enough to do a factory reset, or so I thought. But after looking at what was using memory I noted that there were about 200MB being used to adapt my list of apps to run under ver 6 after having been first installed under ver.5.
    I did a factory reset and gained back that 200 MB of memory and during set-up and subsequent use of the phone also found that there had been many screens that had been using the ver.5 images instead of the newer ver.6 images and icons. While a factory reset can take a number of hours to redo the phone I feel that it was well worth the effort for how much better and smoother the phone works after the factory reset.
    Your mileage may vary.

    I do have one question. How do you rearrange the order of your email accounts in the account list in the Samsung email app?
    I just reinstalled my email accounts randomly and now unlike in version 5 I can't seem to figure out how to rearrange the list. I have dug around in the general Settings, and the OEM email Settings as well as the on-phone Help files but can't find anything to help. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thanks. When I try that, I get the following screen:

    Any thoughts?

    I noticed today, with the device locked if I wake it and drag down the notification tab and select any notification it auto unlocks and opens that app. I have fingerprint security active. If you select an app it opens to it as stated above and then you can just press the back key and you're at your home screen, security bypassed! This needs to be patched in a quick hurry.

    I just tested this with mine, only had gsam and a Google now card notification, but it made me use fingerprint to unlock. I will test again when I get a real notification

    Okay addendum, if you have smart lock active, i.e. a trusted bluetooth device or a trusted place it will unlock to the selected app notification and then the home screen. For testing I turned off my LG Watch Urbane and deleted my trusted place, (home) and when I selected any app notification it requested my pin or fingerprint.

    I have yet to try smart lock, so I'm not entirely sure what it does but isn't not having to unlock when near a trusted device what it's supposed to do?

    Yeah, you can choose a bluetooth device, an address or GPS location, voice or body detection. I usually use it with my watch and/ or the bluetooth in my car and my address. It works great and when you're not at home or in your car or step away from your phone it locks and would require either the password or fingerprint to unlock. It is also worth noting that after deleting my "trusted place" and reentering it, if I select an app notification it still requires me to either enter my pin or use my fingerprint, though after turning my "trusted device" back on and the watch connecting if I select an app notification it will open without a pin or fingerprint.

    That sounds like it could be pretty handy. Unless of course if someone steels your phone and your watch or your car with your phone in it

    You should be able to find it by going to the settings app and use the search function above, just type in smart lock. Then choose how you want to proceed.

    Re the calculator, try 132 * 1.08875. There are other ways, too, but this is my favorite way to figure it. If I'm understanding what you trying to do.
