    My co-worker has an M8 and really enjoys it as it is. He does not want to update to Lollipop. Of course he gets notified every time he turns his phone on. He only has an option to delay the update by less than 24 hours and will then be asked again and has to repeat the process all over again. Is there a way to halt the update and update notifications?

    Basically no. After so long it will force the update. Unless he roots it, then there's ways to halt it.

    I wish I would have pushed my M8 back on the update. Haven't been happy with Lollipop at all.

    Have you tried clearing the system cache and/or doing a factory reset? A reset can be a pain, but it often clears up little glitches with the install of such a big update. That is, if your complaints are of poor performance or things not working like they should vs. not liking the Material design makeover/etc.

    I've had lollipop a couple of weeks and the apps are just really beginning to update to "5." or "lollipop" compatible so as they update you should see your phone get less buggy. Can't change the fugly fonts on things but it will get better , performance wise

    I know it will eventually, but I hate going from a perfect,everything works phone or device to a bug riddin lagging out device, kinda like when upgrading to Vista back in the day.

    Haven't done a FDR yet but have cleared the cache on everything. it's the small things that get to me like Pandora thumbs up/down play/pause not being in the drop-down menu, or moving the browser tabs to the not located in the browser anymore.

    You can change that option in the browser. It's under the settings. Turn "merge tabs & apps" off.

    I agree. 2 words; Android fragmentation. With ios if there's a bug it's usually in the update itself because an iTunes sync does an fdr before a new install every time it syncs, no matter the reason and their apps are more times than not new version ready at install. With Android it's a crap shoot as to the culprit.
