    After the update the battery started draining very fast, also observed the heating issue. Did the factor reset twice still the issue continues.
    Any suggestions how to solve these two issues (Battery draining & Heating issues) ?

    Try wiping the cache partition. Instructions in 8th post on this thread...let us know if it fixes the problems

    I updated to Lollipop a few days ago. No problems. I like it very much. I do notice however that It's using a lot more ram. Consistently at 1.3g. Would clearing the cash partition resolve this or is this the new norm?
    Thanks.

    Just got the update a few hours ago. Many app icons have changed somewhat and look crisper and cleaner. The phone looks more colorful overall and I think the appearance is improved.

    Here are some gripes so far:

    1) The button on the bottom left of the phone used to take me to the settings menu. Not anymore. It takes you to a homepage settings menu.

    2) My biggest gripe so far. Near the bottom right of my homepages is the "Apps" button. That button used to access both apps and widgets. The widget section has disappeared. I used to have a thin, horizontal google search bar widget on my homepage. It has disappeared and I can't find it. Does anybody know where the google search bar widget has gone?

    3) Google Play Music (now called Play Music) kept staying on in the background even thoiugh I never used it. I had to disable the application to save battery.

    Edit: Solved #2. I really like the brighter colors in Lollipop. If the battery life is as good as it was prior to the update, I will like Lollipo.

    Well, the dang update has hit my phone. To update or not to update. :-) Mixed reactions here thus far. Appears that a reset is not needed. I'm definitely not doing one unless something goes wrong. Backed up as much as I can offline. Sounds like may have to clear cache afterwards. Pull the trigger? :-)

    Hey guys I have problems updating my at&t i337 s4 to android lolipop 5.01. I tried changing the time and date to different days but it says update interrupted. I deleted alot of memory, I have 5 gb available, as well as wiping the cache, but still have update interrupted? Should I just be patient since it just rolled out a couple days ago? My phone isnt rooted or anything!

    randun pull the trigger.. I'm liking LP so far.. I did nothing special before or after the undated and everything is working fine. Some things are different and just take some hunting to find now..
    Phone is smoother and I like the new look. Other then the orange text message I'm liking this a lot and it is holding me until they release the S6 active.

    I'm happy to report I also did the update and cleared the cache before the update. No factory reset and it's running rather smoothly - no problems yet and I hope it stays that way

    Sounds good. I'm probably upgrading to the S6 as well but will wait until it's 'battle tested'.

    After the update I can no longer access the internet away from a WiFi signal. I used to have a '3G/4G' icon and now just the bars with no icon. I also had full bars at home now it seems I have just one and sometimes none. Also I can't use talk to text with my texting. I've used this phone for a year with no problems. I paid cash and used straight talk for 3 years. I'll clear cashe lie post 8 said and try a factory reset after I figure I've saved as much as I can.
    I'm a make calls, text and check FB kinda person. These updated never sit well with me. FB keeps closing after about a minute when scrolling.

    Received the Notification today and downloaded Lollipop 5.0.1 .. only took about 15 minutes on WiFi.
    Didn't do anything but download and let it run its course and running fine without any issues that I can see.
    Yeah a lot of things changed but IMO most are visual which is subjective and some are counter productive.
    It's like change for the sake of change especially when some of those changes still do the same thing only you have to go to a different place to do it.
    Colors are subjective but I find the new colors are way out of whack, at least for me.
    I don't see any place to customize colors which I'll never understand considering all the advancements in this Technology.
    How hard is it to give us some visual customizing options ?
    Unless I've missed it, One thing I can't find is being able to Customize the Lock Screen with Widgets like I could Before the update.
    For whatever reason, mine has the Time, my Weather App and my Lux App on the Lock Screen, but can't remove them, or modify.
    Aside from adding or removing quick access Phone and Camera Icons and the Clock or Personal Message, can't do anything else to the Lock Screen.
    Did they do away with customizing the Lock Screen or am I missing something
    Update: just realized my Weather App and Lux App are covering my Personal Message and can't do anything about it.

    Out of the blue, & during the night, update started w/o any intervention from me! Stopped though with usual interruption message. Probably because I need to move a **** load of apps to the SD card.

    Have you found a way around #1 so that you can customize what this bottom button does? Its stupid how it works now.

    I have noticed that on lolli that the bluetooth to my car doesn't send track info anymore. Is there an option anywhere to correct that. (using milk music). I have a 2012 mazda 3
    Mine wasn't sending info before the 5.0 update. I have the same year and model car. . Would love to find a solution to this.

    I was blind-sided by the update. I had actually given up hope that I would see Lollipop on my S4. After driving 12 hours from FL to SC yesterday (it should have been less than 11 hours with stops except for the numerious serious accidents in Florida), I had a message about an AT&T update. Well I was unpacking and getting things in order so I figured, why not? The update completed and the phone rebooted and then sat with the AT&T logo and the blue light on forever. Checking here I realized that I had just received Lollipop. I also decided it had bricked my phone. I pulled the battery and rebooted with the same results. I let it sit for a long time (at least so it seemed) and logged on here to complain about my bricked phone (and I had planned to search for the nearest AT&T store). As I was typing my post the phone started updating my apps. No warnings for all that time! What a crap way to supply an update!!!!

    Anyway my phone seems fine except that certain apps no longer work as they use to...... Guess it is time to do some reading.....

    Hello:

    Noticed after the 5.0.1 update when I go to Play Store to see my installed apps, I keep getting Check your connection and Try Again. Have to reboot to fix. Wasn't getting that message before the update.

    I have seen others reported the same issue but no fix as far as I can tell. After the update the menu soft key no longer brings up the settings menu. Does anyone know how to configure the soft keys in Lollipop?

    As far as I can tell, the only way to return to that functionality is through the use of a replacement launcher. I have Apex Launcher on my phone, and although I'm not using it by default for now, I found that this key will bring up the settings menu as before.

    Hi:

    Another difference I have noticed is before lollipop, you could move the multi-view tray from one side to another. In 5.0.1 I haven't found a way to move it from the left side to the right.

    I have double arrows on my one launch bar (one up/one down) that use to turn 4G connections on and off when I did not have a WiFi connection. Now that double arrow icon takes to to data useage and I cannot figure out how to turn on the 4G data connection!

    After the update I can no longer access the internet away from a WiFi signal. I used to have a '3G/4G' icon and now just the bars with no icon. I also had full bars at home now it seems I have just one and sometimes none. Also I can't use talk to text with my texting. I've used this phone for a year with no problems.

    Never mind, I found it (how to turn on 4G data). What was once a two step process is now a three step process. How stupid!
