    I really wish I would have found this a day ago. I looked but only saw the April update thread... :confused:

    I wouldn't say "run circles around". There are countless unbiased reviews online in which the reviewer chooses the Note 4 over the Nexus 6 simply because the Note 4 offers so much more in the way of usable features, brighter display, better camera, etc. While TW isn't for everyone, it certainly isn't the "hog" it once was.

    I went from a Galaxy Nexus to the Note 4 which was my first real experience with TW. At first it drove me crazy with the actual home button but mostly with them reversing the back and apps buttons. I'm used to that now but it still makes no sense to me as back was always on the left. There are still times when TW gets in my way trying to do something but other tasks seem much easier. I bought a Samsung tablet to replace my Nexus 7 (original) mainly because I was now used to their interface. Only thing that drove me crazy was the 16gb built in memory which is far from adequate. Without the microSD the tablet would be useless. Samsung's best feature is that it supports external drives natively so I no longer have to use stick mount and root.

    Like I said, I own both, and the Note 4 has become my secondary device, sorry to burst your bubble, and the screen on the Note 4 is not that much better than the Nexus 6, and I could care less about a cellphone camera, also not into selfies.
    And yes the Nexus 6 runs circles around the Note 4 and it's lag fest called TW.

    Ugh. If they're just now getting to 5.1.1, wonder how long it'll be before the Note 4 see Marshmallow. It's still on the list to get that update, isn't it?

    Initial reports from Android news sites is that it is indeed 5.1.1.

    It seems to be nothing...
    Google to work....Meh
    Updated Knox...Meh
    Amazon widget removed...already disabled them.

    Thanks...And this was what took 4 months? We could already be on Marshmallow, where we can see some real change. You're the best Verizon!

    On the S5, this particular update fixed a number of small issues like excessive battery drain, apps force closing, etc.
    OS updates will always be released as the main number. (eg: KitKat-4.0, Lollipop-5.0, Marshmallow- 6.0) so you're typically not going to see anything different after taking said update. .1 and .1.1 related updates are always "under the hood" type improvements.

    Checked for the update this morning - not there. Checked again about a half hour ago - it was there. My Note 4 is now upgraded to 5.1.1 Good things: everything seems to be still functional. It seems to be doing some things still in the background. Failures: only one so far - it failed to brick my system :D
