How come all the Samsung products needed a maintenance release? 5.1 is running fine on my Note 4

Read through the link in the post. It should answer all your Q's.

 

You might not be in the first 30k to receive it. It's rolled out gradually over a couple weeks.

For some reason I can't see a link but I have heard of that gradual rollout method. Guess I'll have to wait and see!

I did the update on my note 4 last night and now it is chewing thought the battery.  Anyone else notice any battery usage problems?

Not on mine, but then again I've done a factory reset as always which fixes the drain. One issue i have noticed is a glitch with the stock launcher and Nova launcher. Despite Nova being set as my main/default launcher, every time i unlock the phone it goes straight to stock for some reason. Very aggravating!

Even though stagefright is patched, my phone was running a tad smoother on the last 5.1 update.
