    I got an update for the Australian version. It feels like things just got much more stable and a little quicker. Three updates in one day

    1. OS update
    2. Nova update
    3. Switched from google keyboard to SwiftKey

    The S6 just got better, we don't even have 5.1 yet. Patience is worth it.

    I found out once that you can manually change the date on your phone and it will let you check for the update again.

    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?
    Try manually setting your date ahead by 24hrs and it should let you try again. I did this once with a Note 3 and it worked just fine.

    After the update I'm now getting 2 (or more) notifications from Go SMS Pro for every message received. It is set as default app. Anyone else experience this?

    Battery improvements here too. Oddly, one of the biggest improvements is that the battery estimates are actually :gasp: useful now. The chart, for example, always used to show a sharper actual decline and a more gradual estimated decline, and the estimates were basically useless. Now the two largely match. When it says I have 12 hours left, I can apparently expect to have twelve hours left.

    Definitely smoother and snappier for me too. Camera pops up faster.

    I haven't gotten any of the "(app) has stopped" notifications that plagued me up till this point either. So, overall, it seems like a big improvement.

    Finally, Android System and Cell Standby have really calmed down. They always used to be the biggest battery suckers. Now it is screen (as it should be).

    So far things are still going well. No slowdowns or other issues and everything seems a tad faster then it was before, the camera now pops up and focus noticeably faster. Not really seeing any outward UI changes but I think some settings icons changed.

    I did have some off battery drain this morning, lost 9% in the 30 minute drive to work, but GSam indicates it's from an app going crazy this morning and things seem to have stabilized now.

    Yeah, that's the Google change-log, not the Samsung one. Hopefully all of that will be rolled into Samsung’s (obviously except the silent mode since Samsung already has that included).

    Still, Samsung hasn't officially released a change-log for 5.1.1.

    Google has officially released Lollipop 5.1.1 update to Samsung, that's been stated at Sam Mobile and on the XDA forums. Samsung is adding in Guest mode and new camera updates as well as other Samsung updates, and wont release their change log till it's officially released to the U.S carriers. Then it's a waiting game till they push it out, however T-Mobile shouldn't take long to get theirs out since they have had a unofficial version of 5.1.1 they been tweaking since early May (also talked about on XDA forums).

    I tried turning on the enhanced LTE option again and within 30 minutes there was drain and Cell Standby popped to the top of the battery usage list so that is not fixed, at least for me anyway. Seeing at that is a Lollipop issue I am hopeful it gets fixed in 5.1.1.

    Hoping they're not going to drag their feet on releasing it.

    Do a google search on s6 not getting notifications. It's posted in this forum and others, related to charging, specifically wireless charging and sleep flag getting set where email notifications do not work after the phone is idle for some time using only mobile network. sms and phone calls work fine.

    I'm a bit annoyed. The update failed to install on my device and now it keeps saying I'm up to date, although my build number is lower than the one in the screenshots of this thread. I've advanced the system date (once to tomorrow, once to Sat and then a third time to Sunday) and tried again and it tells me it's up to date. Usually that has worked in the past, but for some reason it's still telling me no update is available.

    Clear cache and try it

    Not too much different than what I was getting before, but I'm sure about 2:40 in an 8 hour work day would be sufficient for most people.
