Micro-updates to fix Lollipop issues on Samsung devices

12 May, 2015
Samsung UK had earlier promised to roll out micro-updates to help resolve Galaxy S5 Lollipop update issues.

Lollipop on my Samsung Galaxy 5 from Verizon seems to have RAM occupancy and POWER problems. Period. The oversubscription of memory causes apps to just be aborted. The battery consumption for my config seems to have most of doubled. I have found some relief by disabling background data access. That stopped the "hot in the pocket" thing, and brought power consumption from abysmal back to just disappointing. This is so sad because the Galaxy had stunning battery life w KitKat. I also deleted or disabled all big memory footprint apps that I dont use. I am on the verge if returning to KitKat. If anyone has other survival tips w Lollipop, do let us know.

This can really trash the Samsung brand in my eyes. It shows how little release testing they, or Verizon, did.

I was having unresponsive power button issues on my s5 with lollipop. I reverted back to android 4.4.2 then did a factory reset. Having updated to BOD3 lollipop then resetting and restoring my data once more, I find all my issues have gone the phones running like a champ. I don't know if this will solve everyone's problems but I hope it helps a few.

chas, 13 May 2015Lollipop stinks!!! I want my old colors & formats back.I agree. Lollipop is total trash. Terrible garbage of an update. I hate the colors , look and feel. Kitkat was much better and not laggy. Also my wifi went from 3 megs per second to 486 kbps. Wtf!! I want my Kitkat back. Samsung can go suck on their lollipop. S4 user.

Just got Lollipop 5.0 on note 3. Cell Phone signal has gone to no bars where I sit at from 3-4 bars with kitkat. Also wireless connections has gone from 4 bars down to only 2 bars right next to the wireless router. Even did a factory reset on phone after upgrading....frustrating

I am Note 3 owner. First they take months to release 5.0,0, not even 5.0.1.or 5.0.2, after 5.1 is out. Lets not also forget 5.0 had known issues almost right from the outset which Samsung must have known about unless they are totally clueless. Somehow I doubt that. Now they graciously are going to give us micro updates. How about at least 5.1 if not 5.1.1 which is now also out. I have actually seen issues with 5.0 on my phone that I did not see with 4.4.2 so the known issues certainly should have been known about. So I now have to ask what exactly are Samsung playing at!?
