  10. battery use

    Samsung Note 4 with Marshmallow. Battery use is erratic. phone shutting down at anything up to 50% and will not restart unless charging. I finally stopped using launcher when on charge it rebooted only to samsung logo and became very very hot. I had to remove the battery to turn it off and leave it.

  15. Search is unusable

    The swipe down (local) search is pretty much unusable, because it blocks for several seconds after typing the first two letters.

  16. search

    when I'm trying to use search, especially using numbers, my cellphone either slows down or freezes. Very frustrating. The search is then kinda useless.

  20. Using Local search freezes arrow launcher

    When I start typing a search string in local search bar, the second letter usually causes arrow launcher to freeze. After awhile a message comes up, wait, or stop arrow launcher. Waiting does nothing to the bad behaviour. When I kill arrow launcher via this dialogue. Then Android 6 loses the default launcher and wants me to select a default launcher.
    This is a repeatable issue.
