Samsung Galaxy Note Edge users complain problems with the camera, problems with photos, problems with data, tons of problems with dropped calls, problems with weather widget, Issues with Android’s Daydream feature, battery drain problems and more. The complaints aren’t as high as other devices, but that’s probably because the Galaxy Note Edge isn’t as common as Samsung’s other phones. It is a limited concept. Fewer users are not complaining as much as they used to.
We point out these issues so Galaxy Note Edge users can get an idea of what they’re facing when the Lollipop update arrives.
We’ve been using the AT&T Galaxy Note Edge Lollipop update for a few days now and haven’t had any noticeable issues so far.
Battery life remains stable after upgrading from Android 4.4. All connections are working normally, including LTE, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Both stock and third-party apps perform well after upgrading to Android 5.0. The device is still very fast and we did not notice any abnormal lag or slowdown.
Now, it’s important to note that software can be unpredictable. Problems usually occur weeks or even months after an update arrives. So, even though our variant is currently open, we may encounter some issues in the future. So far, still very good.
