Galaxy Note Edge Locking Up in Hangouts and Chrome
I keep having problems with my Note Edge where if I am in the Hangouts app, I choose to add an attachement, and I choose the option to take a picture it will take almost a full minute for the camera app to launch. Once it does finally launch I can tap the shutter to take a picture but then it just hangs again for about a minute before I can see the picture. All-in-all it takes 3 - 5 minutes through Hangouts to take a picture and send it in the conversation.
For now I've resorted to taking the picture through the Camera app first and then selecting it it Hangouts. It's extremely annoying that I have to use this work-around and switch between two apps instead of just using the functionality in Hangouts.
Also, with Chrome, the entire phone will lock up sometimes when a website is loading. The entire UI will stop responding for about 15 - 30 seconds, then it will studder for a while before finally loading and becoming fluid again.
Are these known issues with Android 4.4.4 on the Note Edge that are being addressed with the forthecoming 5.0.x release? On that Note (pun intended), is there any release date scheduled yet for the update? I'm anxious to see this perform up to its hype!
