    This new update is HORRIBLE! My battery charge goes down about a percent a minute since this update. The interface sucks and is ugly as heck. BRING KITKAT BACK! How do I revert back to KitKat?

    Just got 5.01 on my Note 4 last week on AT&T, now there's no telling when AT&T will role out 5.1... Probably next year knowing AT&T, that's one of the main reason why custom Roms are becoming more and more popular. I'm almost willing to bet the Note 5 will be released before AT&T updates the Note 4 to 5.1 and here's what I have to say about that🙈🙉🙊🙉🙈🙊🙉🙈🙊🙉...

    Since Lollipop 5.0 update on my Samsung S5 i have only problems with it.
    Is it possible to downgrade system to KitKat 4.4.2 that was working fine. When will there be a Lollipop 5.0 upgrade for Samsung S5. Google app do not work and there is NO support for Lollipop 5.0 CRAP problems.
    There was no need to change KitKat 4.4.2 with a Lolli crap that does not work and Google employees are to lazy to solve issuses.
