Samsung Note 4 on Verizon network.

It did an update on Feb 10, 2016. Update # is N910VVRU2BPA1. I have a night/day difference in charge rate with this update.

Phone charged "normally" before update, at standard charge rate. I never use rapid charge. After the update, it charges about 5% per hour if I don't touch the phone and keep screen off. If I use the phone at all, the percentage drops quickly, even on the charger with screen fully dimmed. This is a night and day difference for me, my phone has been great until this update 2 days ago.

I tried rapid charge and the percentage shot up quickly, but the phone got very hot. I gained 15% in 10 minutes, and turned rapid charge off.

Clicked "Update Details" and it took me to Verizon website, where it says "Benefits of this update: Supports Android for work. Updrades to Samsung Knox platform, a comprehensive suite of mobile enterprise security solutions. Removes Amazon Widgets from this device."

Is there an easy way to "remove" this update?

Please advise, Thanks!!!

IS your phone running hot? When you are able to get it fully charged do you notice if it discharges faster then before?

Keep Fast Charge On. All phones with it heat up in the 1st 50% of charge, after 50% the voltage drops and phone tends to be warm or cool, depends on the temp in your area to, and then at 90% it drops voltage again.

I've had my Note 4 since launch week in October 2014, used Fast Charge 90% of the time, battery still good.
