    Yup, already updated last Saturday :-), smoother transitions than Lollipop but faster battery drain. Will give the OS a few days to settle.

      How bad is the batt drain issue?? Is it bearable or worst??

    • Dan Rivera says:

      The batt drain is bearable. Overnight standby drain (mobile data and WiFi off) is almost the same with Lollipop (2-3%). On the average, I end up with 20-25% batt life after eight hours with MM, 35-40% with Lollipop (both with mobile data on). But it’s been three days only since the update, I guess it will get better once my phone gets accustomed to the new OS :-D.

  2. I got mine this morning, and I’m keeping a close eye regarding battery drains and WiFi connection issues like the forums before said.

    I lost mobile data after the upgrade. Nothing works even edge. Solutions available on the net all failed (airplane mode, reboot, sim card replacement). I’ll talk to Globe support next. I have Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

      i experienced the same major issue. visited the service center twice. they replaced the motherboard upon the first visit, but the problem recurred after 7 days. the 2nd visit, i asked that the OS be downgraded to Lollipop but issue persists until today. i am at my wit’s end, but i will visit the service center the 3rd time this weekend.

      was your issue resolved?

    @rator – turns out i had my line cut off by my service provider which explains the connectivity issues. Upgrade has not affected my phone after all. You may want to check in with your service provider if you got the same issues as mine.
