  1. Prior to “upgrading” to marshmallow, I was able to mirror my screen to my screen beam mini 2. Since getting marshmallow I can only mirror my screen to newer Samsung TVs. It’s definitely a Verizon issue from what I’ve read. Apparently there is a fix but the phone needs to be rooted, Verizon does not like rooting so they keep putting out “security fixes” to prevent people from rooting. DON’T UPGRADE, ROOT AS SOON AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE! The upgrades have made my phone less useful than when I bought it. This should be illegal!

  2. Accepted this update and cell phone wouldn’t stop periodically rebooting. Ran through battery overnight. Did a basic reset and within a few minutes it went to black screen and also wouldn’t turn off/restart. Pulled and put back the battery and will see what happens.

  3. After installing this update, the battery will no longer charge. Have tried 2 different charging cables/power outlets and left phone shut off at 50% while charging overnight and battery is now completely dead.

  4. since this myself and another G5 user at work have had the same problem. our screen flickers and stutters as it shuts down. this also happens as it starts up. this is very very annoying. she actually gave p her phone because of it. I am not in the position to do so. I would really like to find a fix.
