hey /g/entoomen,
question for all android users, particularly those using a phablet. I'm currently using a Note 3 on Verizon. The other day there was FINALLY a rooted version of lollipop released. Who here uses lollipop? Anybody wish they hadn't taken the OTA? What benefits does lollipop have over KitKat?
Also, android general I guess

My experience with kitkat was shit, but then again it was using a droid X when it was only designed to run up to Shitbread which made my phone worse than Froyo somehow.

Lolipop seems much better, but I'm also using a phone thats like 5 years newer than my last phone too. Waiting for a stable CyanogenMod 12 since there doesn't seem to be a working FOSS switch user binary for google rom (mfw phoneplebs call it super user).

This is true.

It can be rolled back? No way.

Installed lollipop like an idiot because I was so hyped for BATTERY IMPROVEMENTS and all I got was a battery hog system that would drain anywhere between 5-20% during 8 hours of sleep as opposed to seriously just 1-2% on kitkat. I did a factory reset, formatted completely, disabled every conceivable app including gapps and any and all google services to no avail. Note 4 exynos, LTE; not worth it at all.

FUCK. LOLLIPOP.

Enjoy scrolling and opening shit without jittery lag? "Fuck you." -Lollipop

Want to put your phone on vibrate by holding down the power button? "Fuck you" -Lollipop

Don't want to hit the home page button while using AOSP browser every damn time (on a new bottom toolbar that just copies Apple's Safari toolbars and wastes a fuckton of space on shit that's just too easy to press accidentally)? "Fuck you." - Lollipop

Want to see whole thumbnails of recent apps instead of just obscured titlebars for everything except the most recently used one in front? "Fuck you." -Lollipop

Want easy access to app info by pressing down anywhere on the entire app thumbnail instead of just the tiny icon in the corner of the titlebar? "Fuck you." -Lollipop

Prefer dark backgrounds that actually make sense on portable devices using OLED screens instead of white backgrounds that waste battery life for no reason other than to drive you blind in a dark room? "Fuck you." -Lollipop

Benefits: slightly longer battery life, transparent notification menu, scroll bump effect is retarded fun for 5 seconds

I would have stayed on 4.4.4 if I'd known, and I'm considering downgrading if that's even possible. Right now, since I use AOSP browser a lot, my GS3 running 4.4.2 is more functional with less bullshit.

I'm genuinely loving lollipop, it feels like android is fulfilling its potential these days. Run it on my n4 till drunk my dropped it on the tube so now I'm aa 2014 moto g owner.

There's some dumb shit, sure, but it's mostly being ironed out in the point updates (e.g only being able to toggle media or notification volume with the rocker).
(Speaking of, moving from a nexus has been fucking painful in terms of software updates, and motorola are meant to be one of the best? God.)

But quick settings, trusted devices/places, that sweet sweet material design, love it.

One thing I will concede is project svetle has been basically undone; downgrading from 3GB of RAM on the n4 to 1GB has been fucking painful.

Do not, I repeat, do not upgrade to lollipop unless you want half your shit to break that you use to bypass pay walls.

>point updates
One problem is some devices, even former flagships, are being officially updated to 5.0 and could easily be abandoned there without receiving point updates, and it's not out of the question that it's part of a planned obsolescence strategy for some manufacturers. Samsung is currently rumored not to be scheduling point updates for many devices that they just brought up to 5.0, including the OP's Note 3.

In the meantime, the very real loss of functionality/performance comes at the loss of unimportant/unseen/intangible/theoretical-only benefits.

Hold down power button, press vibrate. To undo, do the same thing and you have the same volume setting back.

look, i laughed at your phone because that's what comes naturally when i see that somebody wasted their money, but i don't really care that much. you opted for a downgrade from the previous generation, that's not my problem

you think apple's full of shit but then you buy the most apple-like samshit phone ever. read the comment above about mobile media, they are the whole reason they made the s6 metal and sealed, to make those idiots happy because they don't know jack shit about anything other than >muh elegant svelte premium metallic handfeel or someshit and it's cheaper and better for them to lock everything down anyway. the clueless mobile media is part of the problem, they're telling everyone what they should have and they know fuck-all.

the truth is that android is not as power efficient as ios. and s6 even copies apple's way of forcing you to choose how much storage you need up front...and if you want to "futureproof" your storage you're wasting a shitload of money playing the guessing game of how much

somebody once made the perfect comment about the s6 compared to the s5. the s5 is the phone many people want to have, with some flaws. the s6 is the phone samsung wants you to have, with even more and worse flaws. you buy into that model, you are basically adopting the iphone model except the money you're flushing down the toilet ends up in korea instead of cupertino.

Nubia Z7 Mini using Lollipop 5.0.

It's the same shit than Kitkat but with more stupid animations that ruin the user experience, unless you're like 15 and think those animations are "cool".

Note 4 has replaceable battery, comes with 32GB stock in the US and can take an SD card (including 64 GB or 128GB), plus of course there's the bigger screen and S-Pen stuff. Yeah it's slower than an S6 but by no means is it a slow phone.

IMO the killer app for S6 is probably the camera and the feel of the glass back (but most people use cases anyway so who cares).

I hate the fact that I have to wait for ATT to update my Note 3 before ROMs become available.

Seriously considering jumping the Samsung ship and getting a Nexus 6.

I don't use the stylus much at all other than to shitpost about the Note series in general on 4chan...

Install DN4 (Diamond Note 4 or whatever it's called). It's available for both Note 2 and Note 2 LTE.
It comes with AGNI kernel and Boeffla sound, and have ZERO bugs/issues.
You basically turn your phone into a Note 4.
Gf loves it.

I was running a custom recovery since I got my Note 4 so I was running the earliest build of KitKat until last week.
Battery improved, it uses 2% of power overnight instead of 8-10%. Touchwiz is a lot faster. Battery usage Screen-on is around the same.

Note 4 SM-N910G.

Tried that, and I also tried the wifi powersaving mode thing. It mainly happens when I try to download a game like asphalt 8 (1.5gb), or when I have been doing something that requires internet while on wifi.

on Galaxy devices, Lollipop is worse but it allows you to edit files on sd card using third party apps. except for that feature, KK is better

i talked to samsung about this. there response is

>google is the maker (HAHAHAH) of android (HUEHUEHUE) and are resposible for compatibility. You carrier is resposible for rolling their updates out to you as problems become apparent.

are you planning on releasing any proprietary software like you did on the wave, or launching devices from the factory with a preinstalled pure version with your samsung apps and touchwiz?

>Let me look, No.

Ok I have galaxy apps on my device but its not showing its installed or even in my app drawer so I cant creat a shortcut or launch it.

>Heres how you make a shortcut

I told you that button is not there. I told you fucked my device.

>Ok let me remote into your phone and help you. Please install (app)

The app is broken it wont work.

>Please reinstall it

I did that before I told you it was broken.

I also created an app that links to your app so i can launch it. i "fixed" it myself.

Are you going to release any specific updates to include app pinning and profiles which I dont have?

>No, but if you have a issue google is working on updates which are being rolled out by your carrier.

It was released 4 months ago and its still fucked. How long will this take?

>That is up to google but from what ive seen they are getting better at resolving some of the original issues.

>some
>getting better

Damn. Seems like it's all about passing the buck when it comes to fixing problems in Android-land.

Google, manufacturers, and carriers all have a hand in approving and releasing shit but nobody claims responsibility when things go horribly wrong or there are reasonable questions about when or how things can get fixed.

galaxy nexus 5.1.1 here. (CM12.1)
It feels like a brand new device. More battery life, very responsive and pretty good usability compared to 4.4.
