GUYS!

I think I just bricked my phone trying to get the update with Smart Switch!!

I advise you wait or try another method!

Ok, scratch the last message, guys!

 

I had to do an emergency restore (WTF?) twice (seriously WTF??) but now it's optimizing apps in 6.0 so I think I'm all good.

 

That was unpleasant...

I just checked and I haven't received the Marshmallow update yet for my Note 4.  My phone was originally with Rogers and it was unlocked by them prior to moving to Telus.  Any idea if I need to do something special to get the Telus Marshmallow update onto my Note 4?

In your case, Rogers will push the update. It's scheduled for may 30. http://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/OSUpgrades/thread-id/1

So I updated today and now I don't have contacts, it's apparently updating to my new language preferences which I didn't change, I cant see a dial screen for my phone but I can answer calls, and I'm really frustrated. And my battery is draining super fast. Help!

Any new updates for Android 6.0.1 on Samsung Galaxy Note 4? Activesync stopped working after I updated my phone to 6.0.1  😞

Any thoughts how to fix the activesync issue on Android 6.0.1 on Note 4? I updated my phone few weeks ago and activesync stopped working as a result couldn't access my corporate email.... I saw that some users have the same issue but I couldn't find the resolution of this issue

You've asked the same question multiple times. You will need to deal with Samsung for any problems with the software. Their bugs delayed the release and if active sync isn't working, it appears they missed one.

The Marshmallow update has turned my Note 4 from a decent phone to a slow, frustrating piece of junk.

 

It freezes if I'm writing a text as another one comes in, then pastes whatever I typed during the freeze muliple times. It frequently restarts without any reason. It suffers sudden battery drains. Performance is generally slow and unresponsive.

 

I have tried clearing the cache etc. and even resorted to a complete factory reset, but nothing helps

 

Does anyone else have the same problems, and is there a way to fix them?

After I updated to 6.0.1 my note 4 gps is not working and it will lockup and reboot twice a month. Other than that everything works well.

I haven't had issues with texting on mine.

 

I've had lots of issues with it restarting though and it's very strange. It doesn't even seem like a full restart. I notice it when I'm listening to music, and the song doesn't even stop playing, it just sort of skips a few times. 

 

When I notice it happening I'll look at my phone, I won't be able to view anything on the screen, and eventually I'll see the "device has restarted" message asking me to input my backup password since it won't accept a fingerprint after the restart (all while continuing to play the song I was listening to).

After having many issues with Android 6.0.1 on my note 4, I decided to factory reset it and set it up as a new phone. It took longer time but it seems that my phone is now stable and most of the issues that I faced before the rest are now fixed. Not ideal but it worked
