New GS5 Update

I downloaded a new update this morning; 373.46MB and it didn't take long to install. (It took way longer to "Optimize" 387 apps after the update was installed.)

Software Version: G900PVPU2BOD3

Android Version: 5.0

Here's hoping that this fixes the myriad problems Lollipop brought to the S5!

Still listed as 5.0 in the about screen.

This update includes bug fixes galore that clearly aren't listed.  I'm not seeing as many home screen redraws and my apps finally open quickly again like pre Lollipop!  Sure maybe some of this is the honeymoon, placebo period, but it is clear that things are faster.  My phone is also sleeping again on my wireless charger, which it was not doing on OA6.

This update added in the Screen Pinning (Samsung calls it Window Pinning) in the Security Menu, scroll down to Advanced area.  Awesome update if you've got nosey friends or click happy toddlers.

Seriously?  You guys are too much. Fireguy, you should know, goats are evil, even ones that look like this

Don't be fooled. 

Rwebb, that's the most current version and yes there's often more to an update than the release notes specify.

Re: New GS5 Update

Well, I have noticed that Wi-Fi Calling has stopped disconnecting. And I haven't seen a "...Contacts Has Stopped..." message since the update. Also, when I run Google Maps, it doesn't automatically close 80% of the time. And 'Interruptions' is now 'Do Not Disturb'.
