Samsung says it is working on micro-updates to fix minor bugs on various models updated to Lollipop

Samsung also says that those experiencing a problem with their handset after the Android 5.0 update might find their phone working better following a factory reset. If you do go this route, make sure that you back up your content. Samsung suggests syncing to your PC and using Samsung Kies for this process.
The tweet doesn't mention when these updates will be rolling out. The only advice we can give you is to keep your eyes peeled for the notification from Samsung that says your update has arrived.

Yeah, thanks Samsung. And please do a better job Google on the future releases because users will be miserable when the Android system gets wrong. The reason of saying this is because for iOS system, Apple can send out as many patches as they want for a short time. For Android system, non-Nexus users could only rely on the manufacturers to release the upadtes and it is usually a paintfully waiting time.

No, his point was it should have been perfect out of the gate. Only Apple gets away with so many glitchy updates. Everybody else has to go through testing. Nexus users have the same problem. Lots of unfettered updates with as many bugs as new features or fixes. It's the nature of software. Tedkord simply acknowledged that.

Every OEM does "micro updates" eversince OTA was built onto Android. Its their job to patch up bugs, and their tweeting it like its just a work of extra miles.

It's Google job to provide a working OS.

How do you know that it wasn't one of the multiple changes to Android made by Samsung that caused the issues? How do you know that it wasn't one of the multiple tweaks made by the carrier that caused the issues? You can't know which is what makes your comment so inane.

Ya, I cant wait, 5.1.1 on my Google Tablets, runs like a f**king charm, but 5.0.x was a s**tTY release! Dont know if these "micro" updates will fix the big issues as nothing seemed to work for 5.0.x on my Nexus device's, and I always do a factory reset after a MAJOR OS revision, that actuallly did help when it first did the update! But now afterwards, The loss of the Sound options on power menu, IT SUCKS, BT also is BUGGY after the update.... ahhh good thing I didnt pay full price for my GNote4... RIP my GNote (OG), you where the best!

S6/S6 Egdes problems: - Wifi - Bad receptions, dropping calls. - Autorotation - Scratches - Pink camera photos - Bubbles under the screen - Weird lines under teh screen - Yellow tint screens - Overheat (metal and glass, bad combination for heat.) and alot others.... This is worst release for a smartphone ever. None have so many problems before. Sure all releases have some minor bugs/problems, but with S6/S6 Edges its not minor and tons of problems. Project Zero = Project FAIL! Only positive, is they indeed created a new beatiful unique design for smartphone. Wish they just managed to make it fully working too. Would have a green S6 Edge/S6 Blue in mine hand by now, if itsnt were of all the problems both devives having.
