    So what is so special about this update? So far I'm not impressed. The only thing I like so far is battery life. I hate how the key board is white and any open tabs for chrome have to be accessed thru recent apps. I seen people complaining it was taking to long to get. But I don't see why. Well unless I'm missing something

    The keyboard color can be changed in the settings. I believe there are 4 options.

    Battery life? Dropped 51% in 12 hours with VERY minimal use, and most of the day sitting on a table next to me on Wifi. Same problem my LG G3 had after lollipop was installed!

    I went into settings in chrome and turned the tabs crap off, now back to normal. Glad u mentioned the keyboard, I will go change the color as I don't care for the white either. I really don't think there is any appreciable difference. I am not a phone nerd

    I do believe the tabs issue with Chrome...is a setting in the Chrome app itself. The same thing happened to me and I got them back, but I don't remember how I did it....
