    Ouch. Looks like 2/3 bloat to me.

    I just got the update. Wish I'd come here before I agreed. I just assumed (well hoped) it was 5.1 to fix the battery leak but apparently not. I sure hope there was more fixes than what the listed at Verizon as that is a downgrade to me. Was sort of surprised to see I had 373 apps that were upgrading! The 5.0.1 update took my battery usage from almost 2 days to a little over 1.

    I think I need to do an FDR .....I'm having Bluetooth and WiFi issues. My note just randomly disconnects at random times....it's annoying!

    Try a cache wipe before fdr. It's faster and less painful afterwards. If it doesn't work then, yeah, an fdr might be the solution.
    Since lollipop every week or so I do a cache wipe and my battery life, bugs, and lags just go away again. Starts acting stupid again and I do another wipe. It takes about 10 seconds longer than a reboot

    Wasn't there a memory leak issue originally in 5.01? I remembered something about that and almost didn't let it install. I was hoping this one was the long awaited 5.1 update but once again Verizon is behind the curve. I saw that Sprint was now pushing it so maybe someday there is hope...

    Reason I remembered this was the discussion on needing the do cache wipe so often. Sounded like that old problem a bit to me. I'll try it and see if it improves after I give this update a chance. Lost 12% overnight but it did do 5 app updates during the night.

    12 percent is a lot. I'm on 5.0.1 on my Note Edge and it only loses 3 percent overnight. I don't charge at night so that I can maintain my battery cycles to my preferences.

    I wish I only had a 12% drop while off the charger. I can send/receive a dozen texts or so and see a 12% drop in a few hours every morning.
    Did the cache wipe, and 2 fdrs. No help...

    The problem with the Note 4 is TW, it's a complete resources HOG, I own both the Note 4 and Nexus 6, both have the same hardware and the Nexus 6 runs circles around the Note 4, which is unacceptable for Samsungs flagship phablet. I typed this using my Nexus 6, which has been a joy to use, and a breath of fresh air from the abomination that is TW.
