Latest Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop OTA brings in new features, fixes bugs

Samsung didn’t really make a big deal out of this for some reason, but the latest over-the-air update for the Galaxy Note 4 brings in some nice new features added with some bug fixes.

First and foremost, the notoriously annoying forced close error on the Contacts app is now fixed, which should give users some respite. Other than that, the update also brings in the Side View Panel, which essentially is Samsung’s implementation of the Pie Controls (if you’ve ever been a Nexus user). Side View Panel brings the two capacitive buttons – Back and Recent Apps – along with the Home button to the screen, thus making it easier to use the device with one hand.

Other than that, the Mute feature is back for when vibrate and sound modes don’t cut it for you. Lastly the update, details of which can be had from the screenshots below, also change the notification selection mode from All/Priority Only/No notifications to a new Do Not Disturb mode.

Hi, I have been facing the following small issues after updating to Lollipop (SM-N910C). 1. Incoming call screen – it displays the swipe left or right to accept or reject the call. but the swiping don’t work. It is activated when I touch the answer or reject button. It causes problem while i take the phone from pocket. A single tap rejects or answers the call. How can I get the full swipe back.

Yes I also flashed a different European firmware version of the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung is really taking a very long time to update my SM-N910F BTU to lollipop. Looks like the UK unlocked version is on the back end because even the Network versions are getting it first.

if you wanna make sure that you don’t have battery drain or odd bugs, just factory reset after you updated to 5.0.1 and be sure to delete cache and dalvik cache after that (just to be totally sure), then everything should be fine with this release.

First day after the update there’s additional battery drain – got me worried after flashing using Odin. Maybe something gets converted in the background, dunno. After that, everything is just extremely fine on my SM-N910F
