    Have you done the factory reset yet?
    My phone was fine after the update, until I noticed the theme was stuck. I tried many things to clear it but only the factory reset succeeded.

    Don't forget smart switch and helium for your backups. I also recommend copying your storage to your pc, since smart switch corrupted some of my boxing videos when it restored.

    Battery Saver,AKA Cheetah Mobile=GARBAGE.
    Do yourself a huge favor,fork up $1.95 for Package Disabler Pro & disable all the Crapware associated with the battery saver & any Sprint "Diagnostic" crud & other Sprint items that you do not use.

    It's likely the same garbage,just in a different wrapper.......

    I still have the NOTE 5,although in the Lollipop variety (THX T-Mobile :rolleyes:)
    The two no doubt still have a lot of commonality,that's all.
    Nothing spectacular on my part,I just have a bit more time with the phones ins & outs,only because I'm restless & switch up often.
    Definitely not Mensa material here,lucky to be breaking the triple digits........................ :goofydroid:
