    It seems like it aggressively kills background apps to me. I have no idea why it does this.

    It does to free up more ram for the OS for no reason. That's why people are complaining about apps reloading. There will be 20% or so free ram available and you've used a few apps. When you go to multitask between those few apps a few minutes later, they'll refresh/reload at intermittent intervals losing anything you were doing on those apps.

    If you want see the RAM issue just multitask and watch how the apps keep reloading when you open them. Multi tasking is borked until Samsung give us a fix.

    I'm afraid that won't happen till we get Android M. Google screwed the pooch on lollipop and I'm disappointed.

    From what we've heard earlier about 5.1.1 on international devices, you may be right. That would be disappointing. Are there differences in update versions by country?

    The only differences should be what the US carriers tinker with.

    I'm not confident that 5.1.1 fixes much. The memory leak should be fixed, but other then that I think the Lollipop related battery drain issues are still there. If M is a full number jump up to 6.0 then I think that is a good sign Google just wants to abandon Lollipop as quickly as possible since it's just jacked up.

    T-Mobile or Sprint are usually first out of the gate. The rest will likely trickle out over the next 3 to 5ish weeks.

    Verizon is usually last. I'm going to assume it's because they are making sure it is bug free. Yeah, that's it!

    Verizon was one of the firsts for lollipop on the s5 and it was horrible. So as much as it sucks to wait I gladly will for a good update.

    Better to get it right even if you have to wait. Slick and quick not necessarily the best.

    Don't blame this on Android. The Nexus 6 doesn't have these issues. It's a TouchWiz problem.

    I beg to differ. This is happening on multiple devices on multiple carriers. Period.

    I am just speculating. Apps reloading while switching between multiple apps could be due to the design of the apps? No?

    As far as my own experience. With iOS (iPad 2) and WP8.1 (Lumia 920) I also facing the same situation. But not all apps.

    It's not just multitasking. It's also ram usage. I know they go hand in hand in a way but from after a restart and ram is cleared and available, there's no reason for an app to reload. Besides, it happens even after a factory reset with no 3rd party apps installed.

    My dads LG G3 on Verizon (I own it and pay for his service) didn't have this problem on kit kat. Only when he received 5.0.2 did these problems occur. There's no rhyme or reason and no particular app that's causing these issues.

    There's also the cell standby drain. Intermittent one day great battery life to horrible battery drain the next. The best word to describe is "erratic".

    I only switched from using Chrome to this app back to Chrome once and lost everyrhing I had written on chrome as it reloaded and had to be written again from scratch. I now no longer use Chrome

    Your post was to say that it's not android. It's touch wiz. Because your nexus 6 doesn't have problems. I'm saying it's not tw but android lollipop.

    If it was Lollipop, though, every phone that ran Lollipop would have the issue. :|

    Then why do those phones have issues with lollipop then? Lollipop obviously isn't as hardware compatible as kitkat, and as for the Nexus it's googles flagship. It BETTER run lollipop perfect.

    Many phones, not just samsung, is having numerous bugs, battery drain, and etc. Some don't for whatever reason but it's pretty widespread.
