Well, that's a few days since the update, and all I can day is that this update has been terrible. Battery draining issues aside, the presentation of this upgrade is utter cr*p.
Is anyone else having issues with it? Did anybody try the battery drain troubleshooting? I can't figure it out.

Android is WAY beyond 5.1.
I would recommend backing up your files and doing a full factory reset of your phone. It’s expected for the performance and battery life to be worse for the first few days after an update as it will be doing background optimisation. But if it continues after that it’s likely that there’s some kind of bug or incompatibility causing trouble. A factory reset will clear out old and irrelevant files and make sure it’s just running the core system that it needs and nothing else, then you can re-add your apps on top.
Unfortunately you will sometimes find that even after this, it may never be quite as good. You’re running software that the hardware was never originally designed for, and it may be pushing it to work harder to be able to run it as best as it can. Especially if it’s a model that’s now a couple of years+ old for example this will become increasingly clear.
Did read it can change the power saving mode you're on, so need to reselect. (edited)
A lot of discussion online as well - check out Reddit. By the way, you may want to edit the discussion title to Samsung UI 5.1. (edited)
Glad you've not had any issues this time.
