Yay, maybe that'll cheer up 80% of the people on this site who seem very angry and bitter all the time!

Don't worry, they will continue being bitter and angry anyway when their carrier delays the update by half a year.

I'm with T-Mobile. I expect I will get the update by April at the latest. Verizon? well they wont for at least another 3 months. again this is the downside of baking in apps.
Samsung needs to work with carriers to make their apps available on the play store, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES.

It won't matter. Even on lollipop, my Note 5 is the best phablet sized smartphone in the world.

Had a Note5 for a week before exchanging it for an S6 Edge+, mainly due to the fact that I never use the stylus and just prefer the curved display look. But I fully agree. Not a single hiccup during my time with Note5, and it's the same with my Edge+. Definitely the most solid, fast, and fluid devices Samsung has ever made.
I can't imagine how much better they will get once we have Marshmallow.

Let's hope. Samsung modifies heavily, down to the framework. There's plenty they could screw up.

But will Samsung fail to meet this date too?

Those dates are internal targets for Samsung. They're not meant for you to see.

What I will say is they added more on top for s6/note5 customer tw with new edge panels and so on, so they have not just added android 6.0, but done a real update

Since I have Verizon I'll see the update some time in April.

My Note 4 was updated to Lollipop on my birthday in April of last year so maybe it'll happen again this year. Earlier wouldn't hurt my feelings though.

Of course the carriers will wait to release the updates until after the S7 launches.

That is almost definitely fake - the S5 is coded G900, not N900.
17. skymitch89 (Posts: 1299; Member since: 05 Nov 2010)
Correct. The N900 is the Note 3 and the G900 is the S5

T Mobile had my S6 updated before global models for 5.1.1

I really don't get why people get so horny about updates. I mean If there's something not working and you are looking for a patch or an update I get it, but I've tried Marshmallow and 90% of the users won't even notice any difference.
I see people swearing,insulting and sometimes threatening major companies !

Lol true... I choose to patiently wait for android 6 update on my M8, jump from 5.0 pretty much satisfied, it carry all new feature of sense 7. I mean it's worth all the wait, more stable, less bug, better battery & carry extra feature & better UI. It seems Samsung really took their time to develop edge feature.

Lies, so where is the update for the sim free versions? If they're approved they should be getting updated already..
25. Shocky (unregistered)
Probably. almost two years old so it should still get Marchmallow.

I hope it's as stable and light on battery as KitKat else it'll be another update I'll end up skipping.
