    Welcome to Android Central! Let the phone charge undisturbed for at least 6 hours. Then, in case the phone is frozen on a blank screen, press and hold Power and Vol Down for about 20 seconds to force a shutdown. Wait a few seconds, and then press and hold Power for another 20 seconds to see if it turns on. If it doesn't, then something presumably failed during the update, which unfortunately probably bricked the phone as well.

    AT&T sent me this update today. I swear everything about my phone is sluggish now. I know it's almost 3 generations old now but prior to this update it was fine.

    Got a similar update for TMO at the beginning of October , weighing in around 350 megs. It sure slowed my phone down.

    Looks like they enabled some Gear VR apps i had disabled and/or deleted from the previous updates. Disabled them and hoping that helps battery life.
