    Geeeeez. My Galaxy 5 is fine, but Metro somehow forced this OS upgrade on my phone. I'm postponing it. How to stop this upgrade and delete it ?

    Or is this upgrade a wise idea ?

    Lollipop is a great OS. Kitkat is very good as well.

    Not sure if this is an upgrade or update to Lollipop. Why is Lollipop better? My phone is now at Android version 4.4.2 whatever name that is.

    Nice website But the phone alert indicates "After upgrading to Android 5.1 OS ......". So your website has something even later than what MetroPCS has transmitted ?

    Do you recommend fully updating the phone by whatever comes from the carrier?

    After I installed 6.0 my battery life was poor. I did a factory reset and now it's good to go

    What do you think caused the problem ?

    How did you back up before the factory reset ?

    Is your phone now the same or better than before ?
