Interesting article. But we VZW customers don't have to worry about it. Right? After all, VZW is usually last in sending out an OS update because of their extensive testing which is supposed to prevent those problems.

Or, does VZW care more about the newest OS update not "breaking" their network and to hell with the phone(s)?

Easy big guy, I read your sarcasm....and agree that they are slow when its a good update and too fast when its a bad one.

Exactly I will not buy from Verizon my next phone for the reason of slow updates. It is frustrating to see other carriers and users with this phone enjoying the new lollipop update and we are stuck just waiting.

Buy the phone for what it PRESENTLY is, not what it MIGHT be.  No guarantees on updates and if the phone works...you got what you paid for.

Honestly 5.1 is what we should be hoping for, it has more fixes, better battery life, and more features than 5.0. But fat chance I guess. The VS985 leaked Lollipop image (23a) sucked a lot, so I bet Verizon is testing the Beta ROM extensively before reasling the OTA. Should be soon though since 23b is much more stable.

5.01 ran great on the G3 when I ran it, but it wasn't syncing the notifications correctly. Thankfully its really easy to flash the official stock image back to 12B baseband (KitKat) - I miss Lollipop a lot already lol - I guess I still have to wait for the bug free release lol

Updated to 5.0.1  the  other day and what a mistake.  The battery life  is horrible. Drains  so fast  and  charge  time thru the USB is  so slow.  I did a   factory restore  and same issue.  This needs a fix ASAP  or I want a battery replacement  sent to me  for free. I will need 2  batteries  just to get thru a day..
