Hi Billaboard, I suspect that you and I were some of the early responders to the recall! I received my 'replacement' S5004 yesterday, and I'm very frustrated and disappointed. I originally bought the E5005 exactly because it had Android 6 and a replacable battery. I, too, waited (and waited.....) for the System and Installed Applications to update As advised, I had backed up my apps and data. I had great trouble trying to restore them today, until I discovered on an official Goole Android Support site: "You can't restore a backup from a higher Android version onto a device running a lower Android version." As to being an 'improved' camera, processor and battery. More pixels do not necessarily mean a 'better' camera (lens, aperture, pixel and photosensor size, focal length,....), more cores just take more power (if you make use them) and battery life can suffer from more cores - and the lack of throttling them back (features and modes introduced in Android 6). There are many other features of Android 6 that I miss, but that will be up to individual preference and usage. I concur with the suppled power adapter, and I was supplied with a black model when I had deliberately purchased a white E5005 (people don't walk off with it by mistake and it's easier to spot on a cluttered desk or in the dark!). Certainly for my use the S5004 is a retrograde step that I am unwilling to take.
