* 5.0 Alarm clock fix, don't use Mute, Use Priority instead
I've really enjoyed Lollipop on my Nexus 4 and 9.
I flashed 5.1 on my Nexus 4 last week and it fixed a lot of the concerns people have with 5.0 This 2.5 year old device is very fast, lag-free, etc. I like it a lot.
I do think the 9 could benefit from the update when/if Google allows us to have it.
I agree. Lollipop is the worst. Most annoying bugs:
Unable to prioritize connection frequency band (5.0GHz vs 2.4GHz).
Multiple rings for E-mail/Text updates when phone is in sleep mode.
Restart from shut down keeps telling me Android is "updating" when it's not.
Have to hold start button down on restart, for long time before it starts.
my things about lollipop:
1.the most customization stuff, the most ram and battery uses. the more crap it has, the slower it gets.
2.white ui. a rip to amoled users
3.not optimized yet.
just get back to kitkat or jelly bean. i love those
Not true at all. While it has lots of customization it is able to run on lower end devices due to its system architecture. It requires less power to run smoothly. It does require a bit more of storage because of art but lolipop substantially saves more battery and it's rather smooth. Incredibly so if you ask me.
Maybe the 5.0 version had some hiccups for some but get in mind that others didn't have any trouble at all. Actually some problems was solved after a factory reset and 5.1 even fixes other things. Just give it time to settle in and it'll be fully optimized and way superior to kitkat.
Could be something that Samsung will have to sort out for their AMOLED devices. Rather than a problem with Lollipop itself. FWIW I quite like a light coloured UI overall, but then I'm not using an AMOLED phone. With Android of course the UI can be customized and skinned by the manufacturers.
The irony is that the Nexus 6 also uses an AMOLED display.
I think Google just designed the look without optimising for particular display technologies.
I have a HTC One with 5.0.2, albeit custom, and don't have problems 2 or 3, haven't especially noticed 4 (but I rarely restart), while 1 has not been something I've every worried about.
Now I do not use the stock email or message apps, which is likely to account for the difference in 2 (I don't see any settings related to repeat notifications in the stock message app - I don't have the stock email app installed). 3 sounds like a glitch of some sort: have you tried a factory reset? Over The Air updates can leave some conflicts in place, so a backup, reset and restore after such an update can clear a lot of odd glitches or performance problems.
I believe the lag is do to a memory leak I'm not experiencing lag I'm running cm 5.1
Same here of course me and child are running on an unsupported phone done by the ROM master phenomx4 on an zte awe I love it
Main thing irking me with Lollipop on the Note 3 is that Xposed no longer works, nor anything that uses it. I had a great bunch of extensions that worked pretty well on it. Not least of which the ad-blocking for YouTube. I miss it already
The other thing, that's more a niggle, but one I kinda miss, was knowing how long the battery had lasted in a charge cycle. It's kind of hard to brag about the kind of battery life you are getting with an extended battery when the phone no longer shows how long it's been on where it is expected to be.
I haven't played with Xposed with lollipop yet but for the battery thing, check out Gsam Battery Monitor app
According to the dev, there is an experimental update for Xposed Framework that works on Lollipop. But it has a known issue to boot-loop on Samsung ROMs.
Sorry, my phone is far too vital to be having that happen.
It doesn't work with touchwhiz Roms. Aosp Roms should be fine.
FWIW ... how about a report from Tasker ... like ...
A1: Say [ Text:Battery at %BATT % Engine:Voice:default Stream:3 Pitch:5 Speed:6 Respect Audio Focus:On Network:Off Continue Task Immediately:On ]
A2: Popup [ Title: Text:Battery • %BATT% Background Image: Layout Popup Timeout (Seconds):5 Show Over Keyguard:On ]
if u have back up u shouldn't have much trouble I'm using xposed for 5.1 beta on an zte awe with no ishues
Is there even an AOSP applicable to an SM-N900 Note 3?
Had a quick look. Seems most Roms are stock based but: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...-android-development/rom-cyanogenmod-t2917702
Also, I saw miui ROM for that device. Dunno if that would work with xposed or not...
AT&T updated this weekend. not thrilled about the new look with my exchange email accounts. It changed the view showing groups by day and week. Haven't found a way to just list them. Not liking the new color combinations either. (S$ Active)
I just updated my phone (oneplus one) to lollipop tonight and so far so good.
It's smooth and functional (and I haven't even done a factory reset).
Obviously I changed the theme to get rid of all that while and I'm enjoying the animations
We are almost halfway into Lollipops' existence, and it hasn't gained the traction i was expecting.
Updates for Lollipop are scarce too, developers must be tired. I would be too, having to update my app every single year.
I booted up Kies 3.0 last night and it notified me that Verizon's OC7 release is available if I wish to install it.
Now that is on the Kies list, and I still have NOT been presented with a Force Fed dose of it, maybe Verizon got the hint that their customers do not always like the newest food in the chain of events and are leaving us to upgrade by choice.
I truly hope that is the truth of the matter.
I have been experimenting of late and using WiFi a bit from time to time and that dreaded Upgrade message has not appeared. Maybe I can now relax and use the phone more normally and not be shutting the radios down so much.
2 ea. Verizon Galaxy S5, 4.4.4 forever!, ART
MyPhoneExplorer lets you access a broken phone while locked
Nova Prime, Textra, Blue Mail, Qi wireless equipped
MacroDroid can help extend battery life
MacroDroid senses Screen off, turns Wifi & Data OFF
MacroDroid senses Screen UnLock, turns Data ON
PureVPN when using a public WiFi
Yea, but Samsung is a different story.
Yes it is lol
ART has slowed down xposed development tremendously. It is so dynamic and it's different in certain version.
