    The size is 148.08 MB and has improved VoWiFi performance and optimizes battery life amongst other things.

    Who else got it and what are you noticing (bad and good)?

    Bad, for me. Leaving on Location to any of the modes involving GPS drains my battery quickly. Specifically, it is the GpsLocationProvider_ex service within Android System that causes the drain. Only way to stop the abnormal drain is to set Location to Wifi+Mobile or just turn off Location.

    Multiple factory resets didn't help. Waiting on the May update for a possible fix.

    It came through on my phone several days ago. I haven't seen any noticeable changes, but I also have not tried the Wi-Fi Calling yet (no need with unlimited minutes and good reception).

    Took this update yesterday and it has been a nightmare since. It now reboots every 20 minutes (seriously, almost on the dot) and battery drops like a rock. Phone was great prior to this update. It was getting almost 2 days on 1 charge.

    I can't seem now to enable wifi calling. Says "can't load management page" and crashes. Any thoughts?

    Well, got it to enable but not authenticate.

    That stinks! I know there was a thread here about constant resets (I didn't read it), so check that out to see if there were any solutions.

    I got much better results yesterday.
    17 hrs off the charger & SOT of 4 hrs & 42 mins.



    GpsLocationProvider_ex wakelock of only 3 mins & 51 seconds using the GPS+WiFi+Mobile location setting.


    My settings:
    -Firmware version PD3 (Sprint GS7E)
    -auto brightness
    -sync off
    -Location = GPS+WiFi+Mobile
    -WiFi & Mobile data always toggled on
    -Bluetooth always on & connected to Gear S2 3G
    -No power-saving mode
    -Google Now & Now on Tap on
    -Push apps running: Kakaotalk, Slice, Pushbullet
    -140 apps installed

    Before the refresh, this was the kind of crazy GPS wakelocks I was getting:



    Finished yesterday with over 6 hrs of SOT.

    Update cut my battery in half. Wish I'd never taken it.

    It didn't do anything to my battery. I hope the next one fixes it for you!
