Update 1: Update is pretty small. Vzw's site has no info yet.

Yeah, not much here. I think Gear VR support was intended to be the main part of the update. I was really hoping for VoLTE support myself.

I figured it was for the Gear. I hadn't experienced issues with wifi myself, but if they made it better, good. I'll.

Don't think I know anyone else who's excited for VoLTE, so it's not like I could use it with friends & family anyway.

I would like some lollipop action though... Haha

I used it on my S5, and it's really great. There's a big difference in the voice quality. It's going to eventually be the standard on Verizon, so the sooner it rolls out to more devices the more useful it will be.
 
I used it a lot the last couple months while I was saving mobile data for my road trips now that I dropped unlimited, but I'm good with my cap beyond that, so I leave it on now except when I'm at home and connected to my network. That way, if wifi happens to drop (hasn't that I've noticed, as I mentioned), I'm not burning mobile data in the foreground or background without realizing it.
 
For the first time after the update my phone rebooted. Saying unable to see sim card. I never had reboots with this phone. I hope that this is the only time that this happen.
 
I haven't noticed a difference yet....

Obviously it's a different build number, but the features included in the change log are very similar to the updates Sammy pushed out on the S5 in 4.4.4. We still have the mobile data toggle though. Not that I ever use it anyway since I hardly ever use WIFI.
Keep us updated guys!
