Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 Marshmallow Update 6.0.1 Problems

I just updated to Marshmallow 6.0.1 in the weekend and have come across a few problems.

 

The phone now wont teather to my PC. Even after manually switching on Teather (which now has to be done everytime the USB is connected, very annoying) where previously it automatically teathered and I could swap files easily.

 

Background data restriction puts an icon in notifications that cant be dismissed. (not a problem just annoying)

 

Duplicates of most my pictures and videos appeared along with new new advertising pictures and folders that seem to be empty but have a number of files in them that cannot be viewed.

 

Charging from the USB via computer is now very slow compared to what it used to be as well.

 

ANyone else have similar problems and/or solutions?

I updated yesterday. Experiencing numerous issues.

 

Firstly my pictures seem messed up, the downloaded pictures not to be found etc. Issues reading the SD card all of a sudden.

Accuweather drained my phone between 8 am and 12pm...4 hours? That's no good. 

The phone is burning up with heat....

 

No the phone doesn't seem to be charging

 

Overall a bloody issues both I and my wife have the Ultra 6.

 

Turned my AMAZING phone and trusty companion into a piece of junk. NOT HAPPY!

Same issue with pitures as well, I cant seem to read anything on my SD card.

 

I haven't experienced the heavy battery usage but the phone does get warm using apps for longer than 10 minutes.

Lots of things have broken on my phone since I updated today - Android Wear app disappeared and when I reinstalled it now it doesn't work - LG smartwatch is paired on BT but wont connect so essentially broken. Also play services says it's stopped working - removal and reinstallation doesn't help so features that used to work such as smart lock etc can't be used. Are there any fixes out there for these issues?

I called Vodafone regarding the issue and their tech said my headphone jack might be broken. That's a pretty useless answer after the fact I said it happened after I updated to Android M. I don't think he understands Software that much. I Just hung up. But any fixes are still welcome! 😊

Anyone experiencing problems with auto rotate?
I've found that I can't switch my phone from portrait to landscape (with auto rotate on). But if an app allows both it works fine, however if an app only allows landscape so automatically switches it, my phone gets the message 'unfortunately, standard home screen has stopped'. I then lose access to any apps and have to restart the phone.
I've also noticed the charging off computer is horrendously slow (bonus for me is that about a month ago my phone rejected computer charging - and with this update charging is back). Glad to know the slowness wasn't related to that.
