    So Google services seems a bit more...calm. It usually at about 4% to 6% of battery life at this point in the day but is still sitting at the 1% it was at the time of the update. RAM usage seems a bit better but really Android is supposed to be high with RAM use. That said I have a 1GB free on RAM most of the time now, before was about 600-750MB. Hard to say if this update did much seeing as Lollipop still has the nasty memory leak until 5.1.1 (if its even fixed then)

    It seems faster, but only a bit so. The fingerprint scanner is just borked now. The funny thing is it picks up on my fingerprints perfectly when setting them up, and the set up process has changed, and if I have to go into the lock screen security menu it picks up on my fingerprint right away 100% of the time. However on the lock screen it picked it up 1 out of about 45 times. So something software wise is hitching up, it's pop up with the 'must put entire finger on button' thing a lot more then it did before.

    My battery life was already pretty great so I can't say anything good or bad about it with the update, but it's going to take everyone a few charge cycles to make any determination on battery life.

    So are people having fingerprint reader issues on this new update?

    It is also pushing to the S6 edge, if anyone was wandering.

    Just remember, after an update, it's a very good idea to wipe cache partition on Recovery Menu.

    Just installed the update. No issues with fingerprint scanner for me. 5 for 5 success rate so far.

    SIDE NOTE:

    Anyone else dislike the fact that after you check for a software update, it forces you to wait a minimum of 24 hours before you can check again?

    I believe if you clear the cache partition, you can then check for the update again.

    You can always go into date/time and change your devices time to accommodate for the 24 hours. It'll let you try again.

    Unfortunately, that does not work for me.

    Yah ... I could do that, but it's not that important. I just find it strange that there is even a limiting system for how often you can check for OS updates in the first place.

    ha- just did the date and time change and got prompted to download the update.

    Is there anything I should do after the update - reboot, clear cache, anything like that?

    Wiping cache partition, like erasat said, isn't bad practice. I haven't done anything at this point and the update has been stable.

    I just did the date/time change and then re-checked ... still no joy. I wonder how long AT&T is going to wait before my device is eligible for the update. Also makes me wonder how it's even decided, since others here on AT&T are getting the update already. I would have guessed it's an all or nothing type deal, but obviously not.

    How does one clear the cache partition? That's not the same as clearing Storage?

    Update always roll out in waves. Small updates like this one tend to roll out in bigger waves, maybe something like 50% today, and 50% Monday. Bigger full OS update tend to do a slow ramp up from something like 20% or 30% of users up to 100% over a few weeks. This way if major issues crop up the can shut off the update and only 20% or whatever percent of customers are affected. It also brings down the strain on the servers handling the update.

    One thing I noticed immediately is the connection to my Wireless Charging pad doesn't work properly anymore, was working fine prior to installing this update and now it refuses to stay connected.

    Turn off your phone. Hold the power button, home button and volume up button until the android robot pops up saying "installing updates". After that is done, it will take you to the section you can select to wipe the cache partition. After you clear that, select the reboot the device option.

    No problems with fingerprint sensor after update here.

    Just curious, has anyone tried VoLTE after the update? I would imagine just about everyone, including myself disabled this due to standby drain issues, and just wondering if the update helps.

    I've had it enabled the entire time and not only does it work well in my area, but it hasn't affected my battery at all.

    Got mine at 12:08 Central Time , posted something about it in the edge forums, but can't wait to sit down at my laptop and read all of the wonderful things you have discovered. Yes from what I know its only AT&T customers. I had the most upgraded specs and lollipop. but to the OP you're not alone. :-)
