    Yeah, I'm on day two of having the 5.0 update. I've been using my S5 pretty heavy since I've installed it...So far, no "bugs", "glitches", or significant battery drainage, or any reasons for a factory data reset. Overall, been running smooth on my phone....fingers crossed

    For anyone with the heart rate monitor issue.. Uninstall Google fitness and it should fix the issue ( if you have an android wear device disable it there too).. There appears to be a bug where the fitness app motion tracking leads to the heart rate sensor being constantly activated whenever anything gets close to it.. But removing the app and restarting the phone fixes the issue

    Has anyone else lost Wifi Calling after the update? I can't seem to find anyone else with this problem.

    No, it is still there. The wi-fi calling app is gone from the app drawer, but everything is still in settings and it still works. Go Wi-Fi Calling in Settings and re-enable it. You will go through and get it set up, added to your account and it will then automatically do an PRL update.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately it is gone from there also. Ironically Wifi Calling and WFC Settings do show up in All apps, but I cannot access them. I can only force stop or clear cache which did nothing. I appreciate the help though, Thanks!

    Installed this morning on my S5 (Sprint). WiFi keeps dropping off and reconnecting. Anyone else having this problem. WiFi working fine on other devices.
    I was having this same problem. I googled it and someone said to turn off "Smart Network Switch." I did that and everything seems to be working great now.
    Settings > WIFI > Advanced
    Uncheck Smart Network Switch

    Interesting, my "Smart Network Switch" was off by default.

    I've been liking the update so far, though the major problems for me, is that the alarm clock no longer goes off when the phone is on silent. Huge issue. Wife was late for work the other day. So now the phone must be on vibrate or volume for the alarm to work. Also I have notice clicking the task manager button is really lagy and unresponsive sometimes. Everything else, I really like the look and feel to it. I talked to the Sprint reps on the Sprint community and they stated they and Samsung were aware of some issues. So hopefully we see an update or a bump to like 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 in the near future.

    I like the overall feel of lollipop when it's working, however I've noticed these problems. The notification tray sometimes lags. The phone gets hot periodically when I'm using it for longer than 5 minutes. The phone shut down and restart if I have, I guess too many apps that are taxing on it. Finally my battery seems to do very well when I'm not using the phone but when I actually use it it burns just as quick if not quicker than KitKat. I know I have a lot of apps, several accounts and a lot of things running on my phone simultaneously so I don't expect a 24 hour battery like some ppl report having but I do expect at least 10 hours, right now I'm getting about 6 to 8hrs. I'm convinced a patch is needed!

    I've been using 5.0 for about three days so far, and in general it's been a considerable improvement over Kitkat. Most notably, the spontaneous/random restarting of the phone has become much less frequent, though it does still happen once in awhile.

    At the moment I'm running Lollipop in its stock unrooted state, but will probably root it one of these days.

    5.0 version running, so far so good but still too early, stay tuned.

    I think I figured out my battery drain was from what appears to be an app I was using named desktop visualizer. It makes widgets and may have been draining my battery significantly along with facebook messenger. I've sense deleted all the widgets from desktop visualizer and uninstalled the app as well as blocked facebook messenger into hibernation. My battery seems to last much longer and the only reason it drained today is because I had 4 hours of on screen time where as before I'd have the same drain for 1 hour of on screen time. I've also had no restarts or lag since making these changes. Hopefully this is the permanent fix! I'll update after a few days.

    not bad considering how much I have pulling from the battery ( 5 email accounts, 2 Google accounts, Samsung account, Facebook, Instagram, twitter, vine, Bleacher Report etc...) 13 hrs with almost 4hrs screen time and and 5 1/2 hrs activities isn't terrible, and much better then it was the last few days before and after the update.

    speedblurr... My wifi calling app drawer and settings are gone too. And like you the app and wfc are found using app manager, but can only be force stopped. It's like the app is installed but not integrated into the OS properly. Does anyone know how to uninstall and re-install the app to get proper integration?

    I just got the update yesterday. Unplugged my phone this morning 4.5 hours ago, and I'm already down to 28% on my battery. GSam shows it being taken up almost entirely by "Kernel (Android OS)" 27.3% and "Android System" 24%, and another 15% by the screen (and I'm sure the white background on everything in 5.0 doesn't help with an AMOLED screen; haven't found skin options to change that yet).

    Other odd thing, Chrome no longer seems to have tabs. Each page appears to be a separate instance in the App Switcher. Opening Chrome results in a strange "document://105" webpage not available message.

    I REALLY don't want to do a factory reset, if I can avoid it.

    I have the same damn problem. I can't fix it either. document://103 or 521 or some other random damn number. I created a thread about this, but no one has been any help. I tried deleting all the settings, preferences, cache to no avail. Also, it appears that Chrome is now built-in to the load, because you CANNOT uninstall Chrome. You can however uninstall all the updates, which I did and then re-updated it to the latest version. It still did not help. I'm really pissed and getting tired of this.

    I had the same problem with battery even after a factory reset it was still pretty bad, I would get about 6 to 7 hours to a charge and would be down to like 10% battery with only 2hr max screen time. It was always Android system and Android kernel that we're major battery depleters but Android system contains alot of apps that you don't really realize are being included. I deleted facebook Messenger as well as Desktop Visualizer in a couple of other apps that I found no longer work on 5.0, rotation manager being one of them. Now I'm getting solid battery around 12 to 14 hours on average with up to 4 hours of screen time.

    I had the same document://## issue, did a factory reset on Friday, still had the issue. Set my homepage to chrome://newtab/ now it always goes to that page when I open a new Chrome browser. That way I can see my recent pages and click them if I want them.

    Go into Chrome settings and you can choose to have new tabs show up as tabs inside of chrome (the way it was before lollipop) instead of each tab being treated as its own open app.

    This has got to the the worst-titled Setting ever. "Merge tabs and apps" needs to be turned off to get the regular tabs back. Thanks for the tip, even if Google was "special-needs" in the way they implemented it.
