Android Lollipop based TouchWiz on the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge includes Mute mode

If you think about one of the worst things in Google’s latest version of Android, it would be the omission of Mute or Silent mode. Google somehow missed one of the most logical and important things in a mobile phone with Android 5.0 Lollipop, but Samsung didn’t. After we updated our Galaxy Note Edge to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, which was rolled out today, we noticed that it had the Mute mode sitting under the notifications tray as a quick setting toggle. The Mute mode can also be activated from the volume rocker or through sound settings from the Settings menu.

Now, many would argue that Android shouldn’t be customised, and that stock Android is the best form, but we think that these are the kinds of reasons where customised Android like TouchWiz has an upper hand. If you didn’t know already, Samsung has started rolling out Android Lollipop to the Galaxy Note Edge in Australia. If you are in Australia, and still didn’t receive the update, you can manually download the OTA file (1018.12 MB) from our firmware section.

Yes i hope they will bring mute + blocking mode back in their next update. That will be less apps to search for auto-managing nights.

If you have any insider Sammobile who can listen, i hope you can tell him that because it’s a big step back since Lollipop touchwizz.

Hope they bring this with the 5.0.2 update to the other devices, especially the regular Note 4.

Okay, what are the odds of the Mute function being rolled out to SM-N910F? The Lollipop update for Note 4 is only available in Germany ATM (and it lacks Mute), but is it possible that the next countries to receive 5.0.1 will have Mute back on?

My Galaxy A3 doesn’t have blocking mode. Such a stupid move by Samsung or Google.

Stop with your interrupt crap mode. Blocking mode was there before since S4 and it was even more complete than this interrupt mode. If you never used it before. Now Samsung removed it sigh.
