If you restored your phone from a backup, hard reset again and start afresh. If you didn't, then waiting for some sort of stability update from Samsung is the only option. But I have high doubts whether Samsung would look at this phone again. They are now too busy with S7 and its different derivatives to waste time on a 2 yr old phone, that too not of flagship grade.
I just upgraded to Indian lollipop. What I did was to first of all factory reset the thing and then installed the Tom through odin and then factory reset again. It seems to working perfectly well. Even better than lollipop to be honest. Let's see how it goes. Nu bugs whatsoever other than the single locks screen bug in the beginning but now it's gone.

1. factory reset on KK4.4 before upgrade.
2. upgraded thru kies thru PC
3. factory reset again after upgrade to 5.1.1.
so over time, there were lags noticeable. call history log was dead slow after a few weeks.

However I upgraded thru kies and facing none of the problems being reported here. Those of you who have upgraded thru FOTA already I would request you to do a clean install thru kies. Go to tools, from there initialization option. The entire firmware will be downloaded and your device reflashed with it. Problems usually occur when a major upgrade sits over a previous build. Even a factory reset does not help for any errors in code remain.
Hi guys,whoseover s facing problem in updating contact in new lolipop 5.1.1 update,go to settings,search for contact storage(NOT CONTACTS) ,1s u l find contact storage,tap clear cache,clear data..and then ok..
Your contacts will be updated,it worked out for me,may be for u as well...
word of advice, if u are still on KK4.4, dont upgrade to 5.1.1 until samsung releases bug fixes.
4.4.2 is much better on this phone in terms of smoothness & fast response.

Call log is so slow. This is inspite of factory resetiing before upgrade and after upgrade and wiping cache and everything for a clean upgrade. Mine is non-rooted phone. I should have kept at 4.4. the Touch Wiz UI is so buggy its samsung's fault not androids.
So I upgraded to the Russian version and hated it. now I want to try the Indian lollipop. I am currently on android 4.4.2(rooted). Is it worth it? or is just going to slow my phone down? Can I root the thing?
