I also notice fast battery drain, camera and picture files seem a little out of order and it scrambled some of my contacts ringtones and contact pictures.... ugg
Yes! Draining battery and my contact names are not showing up in my message inbox. Please fix
Sorry samsung u can stick ur phone were the sun doesn't shine,absolute crap since the update,back to iPhone.
It's been about a week since the update, my phone is losing battery faster and faster. It takes forever for text to show up. When it does, it doubles words with no spaces at warp speed. I cracked my screen because I was so frustrated with this. You have cause alot of damage to a utility that everyone uses for businesses and organization. You should feel terrible that this was even an option for release to your customers. If this isn't fixed ASAP, there will be no choice but to boycott all future devices including home theater and appliances.
I will be contacting you in more ways, seems this is a brick wall and these comments will never reach your terrible development department.
I am unable to attach photos to messages, and there are some videos that I cannot play or view. Is this because of the update? Please help.
Samsung your crap................ ever thought of a POC... Proof of concept b4 you shag peoples phones up........ my phone keeps crashing
Same issue. Sd card keeps coming up and I have problems with the screen and have lost saved data.
Have samsung issued anything about this?
Since the update, the battery goes from 100% charge to 0% and shuts off in about 4 or 5 hours, even when I'm not using it! 64G SD Card is now "corrupted." Is it "Lollipop" because everyone who updates is a sucker?
I got issue with my Mic since new update, everytime I use my camera /switch back and front camera while video call on Facebook I lose my Mic. I have to restart my phone to get it going back to normal and it will repeat itself again if I use my camera, this impact my Mic even when call anyone from contact list. basically my Mic gets disabiled once I use my camera whether it's video call, photo or recording. any help is appreciated. thanx
OK Samsung you have a matter of days to fix this ridiculous update. Reeks of complete incompetence pushing out an upgrade with so much issues. Its convincing me to go back to iphone. Well cheesed off.
Wish I didn't get this update, I now can't even view photos because it's 'low on storage space' ... Really Samsung...fix this soon, it's ridiculous.
Last update worse ever phone freezes can't close apps battery life reduced keeps closing down and removing my music app please sort this out love samsung but makes me want to change
I thought it was just me with problems. Now I know better. I have a galaxy s5 and can no longer access any downloads in the my fIle app when I download music. I had Verizon send me a new phone but it looks like it was the latest update.
I have lost the peeking option on my notifications. All that shows up in my notification bar now is the app icon. While I'm in other apps and I receive a text message or email I can no longer see a preview of who it's from or part of the message. I have to get out of my screen and go into the app to see or pull down my notification bar to see. This is annoying!
Battery only last 4 hours at the most. Also drops calls after about 5 minutes consistantly. Phone just says "no signal" even if I have bars.
Am I the only one that hasn't been getting certain text messages since the update? Also my phone has beenough extremely slow in response time when trying to text or type. Phone is now slow in general.
Galaxy S5 Mini huge battery drain after Lollipop update (Google Services and others)
Since the latest update I had been unable to transfer videos/pics stored on my phone microSD to my computer. For those who may be trying to access photos in the gallery via PC or transfer videos/pics to your PC and unable to because of empty folder, with the help of Samsung support in a chat session we were able to get the problem resolved. Disclaimer - Your results may vary.
Problem - Running Windows7. PC recognized the phone was attached via USB cable. Would hear audible ping on PC and popup Autoplay screen shot with 3 choices. Chose OPEN DEVICE TO VIEW FILES as normal but would only have another screen popup with SAMSUNG-SM-G900V and no files listed. Unable to locate DCIM file. I took my microSD card out of the phone, put it into a standard microSD adapter and inserted it into the PC to verify the videos/pics were actually viewable and files were not corrupted. MicroSD card worked fine in the PC.
FIX - Unbeknownst to me after the phone was plugged into the computer there was a notification being posted on the phone.
1) Swipe down on the phone to view the File Transfer - Tap here for more options notification. Tap on the notification.
2) Will see a USE USB FOR menu with 5 options - Charging , File Transfer, Photo Transfer, Software Installation, MIDI. The default selected was Charging. Change selection to File Transfer.
3) Once that selection is made the AUTOPLAY screen should pop up on the computer. Choose Open device to view files and should now see a screen with files Card and Phone listed.
4) Double click the Card file and should see more files listed. Mine are located in DCIM folder, double click DCIM folder, then double click Camera. Video/pics should be viewable on the PC and now you can transfer or copy etc. (If you do not have microSD card would guess the DCIM file would be listed under Phone instead.)
The bad news is it appears you have to go through this notification process each time you want to transfer the files to your PC, where before the update it was seamless.
