The first thing I noticed after the update was improved fingerprint recognition. I've never had issues with my thumbs not reading, but it seemed my index fingers had to be perfectly aligned in order to unlock my phone. Now they work at off angles and much quicker.

I also promptly froze the Gear VR apps since I don't want to risk battery hits from something I won't use.

Anyone use stock messaging? I'm curious if the awful delay when trying to send a message is gone.

Just a question. With the app optimization do we still need greenery? Just wondering.

Weird thing I noticed was when when I factory reset after I took the update factory recovery was saying something about dfverify tree or something like that.

Interesting; I just had my Note5 unlocked and with my AT&T SIM in, I was able to download and install the update OTA.

Happy to see all known Stagefright vulnerabilities are now addressed.
Why wouldn't you get the update? I don't think SIM card mean anything.

SIM cards are used to determine OTAs for Nexus devices. But you are correct that they typically don't matter for other OEMs because each carrier gets a different model number assigned to their hardware variant.

Wireless charging is being a lot more picky about where I place my phone on the pad after the update. I have to set it down a bit higher on the phone rather than centered like usual.

i was having this problem prior to the update, was hoping for a fix

Samsung wireless charger is supper picky, third party ones, not so much

Is anyone else experiencing issues with Text Messages? I'm using the stock messaging app (after I started having issues with EvolveSMS). I'll get the same text messages from someone 5 to 7 times, kind of getting annoying when my S2 vibrates and get's blown up with notifications.
