If everything seems to be working for you, I'd say don't change anything.
I've been on board since day one so I have A LOT of apps/experiences/games etc...I would like the majority of them to work at full capacity. I DO wonder what Kurios would be like when not a rankin/Bass stop motion special.
as a general rule, lollipop is about 70% as performant as kitkat was (at least regarding the gear VR), which is a pretty big deal since anything VR is pushing the phone to its limit. for me, lollipop overheats faster, graphics stutter more often and more randomly even long before heat becomes a problem, its just generally nowhere as good as it was before.
dont upgrade unless theres a specific software that wont run under kitkat, and even then, be aware that youre paying a very very high price just for one more app to be compatible, namely all other apps being more jitterish and touchy all of a sudden.
id downgrade in a heartbeat, just too busy at the moment to do so. even outside of the gear VR, lollipop has been a very clear step down for me. note 4 isnt nearly as stable and fluent as it was before. crazy that s***t like that still happens in 2015. google pulled a real windows ME on that one, and its not the first time either.
