Check out these pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge running Android 6.0
Last week, a lucky unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 owner ended up with Android 6.0.1 on his phone by mistake. Considering that the manufacturer has always had phones in the Galaxy S series go through at least two major updates, this would not be a surprise. The Galaxy S5 launched with Android 4.4.2 and was updated to Android 5.0. That means that by tradition, Marshmallow should be pushed out to the phone. Also in line to receive the Marshmallow update are variants of last year's high-end models like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active and the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A. And don't forget the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

The manufacturer is currently beta testing Android 6.0 for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. These 2015 models will be updated to Marshmallow along with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. All four models should also be in line to receive Android N along with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active.

We don't know exactly when Sammy will start rolling out Android 6.0. Considering that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will probably be unveiled during the February 21st Unpacked event (the day before MWC 2016 opens in Barcelona), we could see the update start to appear sometime next quarter.

100% nope, sadly. Samsung sell the most android phones out of other companies and wish they would take a step forward with removing trash and carrier control. They would receive so much praise from community for it. This in my opinion is a selling point in apple and it could be for samsung over all the other phone makers with android

But I guess you can disable most of them and that makes much of a difference as well.

UGLY UGLY UGLY. And still too much cluttered and looks too awfully busy... Too much burden for the likes of me who prefer simplicity... And don't like to carry a notebook to take notes about his Smartphone's OS shortcuts and tricks.

I know, I suffer from SAITBA (Stock Android Is The Best Android) Disorder or syndrome (< whichever you prefer)...

Anyhow, G'Day Mate...

Subjective opinion, I just got a GS6 and I rather like the UI. Very functional with lots of features, and imo it looks pretty good.

If you like simplicity, just use the iphone. iphone sacrificed everthing for that simplicity.

iOS is anything but simple, it took me a google search to find how to access drafts in the stock mail app, it's pathetic in terms of usability and simplicity in name of clean and minimalistic interface

I'd prefer simplicity, usability & practicality over bright colors, complexity and overall "cheekiness" & "sauciness".

Besides, I don't use my phone 24/7 so I don't care if it happens to be a tad on the boring side... Besides, if you expect fun factor of a video game from an OPERATING SYSTEM then you may want to reconsider your priorities...

G'Day!

so why are you commenting on this article that endorses "bright colors,complexity, and overall "cheekiness" & "sauciness""?

In 2016, why do people still complain about a UI being "ugly" when they can download whatever theme they want? The "ugly" complaint was one of those subjective criticisms Samsung took away from you a year ago. The icons are resizable, so the "cluttered" complaint can't even be considered subjective. Now, for you to complain, you're just going to have to swear to everyone that you own the device and it "really, really, lags". Then, you can also tell us how you're going back to iPhone or Nexus.

@Willard12 (< I do hope you're not 12 Y/O!) You're right to some extent... But installing a customized 'Launcher' on an Android Phone adds yet another bloat to the already 'Bloaty' OS... Touchwiz is STILL running in the background even when you're running a custom launcher on your 'Sammy Device'...

And installing a custom ROM is just scary for the faint hearted, i.e Me!

So, I'd very much prefer a device that works RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX rather than having to 'tweak' it for my linkings...

No one would buy a brand new WHITE CAR and then later paint it PINK just because he likes pink... He'd buy a pink car in the first place, savvy mate?

@Greenman, If you think the number 12 references an age, and right next to it is says "member since 2012" , I'll let you summon your inner Sherlock Holmes to see if you can put two and two together.

I had no idea that Touchwiz didn't work right out of the box and people are forced to make tweaks to operate it. Either way, you may want to get used to the "bloat." Whether is split-screen, multi-window, or anything else on Touchwiz, its features are being "adopted" and will probably hit your favorite OS eventually, if not already.

However, if you just want simplicity, Touchwiz still lets you make calls, and send text messages just like every other device. There is no legal or technical obligation to modify anything. So, as I said already, just come back to us with your lag testimonial. The name "Touchwiz" is proprietary to Samsung and it's what separates it from other devices. Thus, if you hate Samsung, you go after Touchwiz even if it's not the one being sued for lag with class-action status and has a camera that comes on within less than a second from the lock screen.

I'm looking forward to your intelligent retort to this 12 year-old. Clown!

I am guessing "Gloves Mode" is still not baked in. The screen on the S6/Note5 is no where near as sensitive as the Note 4 with this option.

For how much they optimized TW in 2015, it felt like they made some regressive design in cutting features for the sake of trying to be "simplistic"

Are you crazy? Note 5 has superior sensitivity which is on MAX by default. No need for any glove mode.

But Glove Mode still is needed.

MAX screen sensitivity (which drains battery faster) is not needed at all times.

Then you dont buy Note lineup which has always been known for being beast whether you need it or not.Go buy HTC and there everything is not needed.

The S6 had poor sensitivity to no sensitivity with gloves on, I naturally assumed the Note 5 was the same. I traded mine off before the really cold weather came. But having the option to adjust sensitivity still has its benefits.

That app drawer is way too bright. A nice gray, or letting us choose our color of choice would be nice.

This looks awesome but I really hope that they update the note 4 UI just like this one not a semi new UI look as they've done in the past, but it might be just a wishful thinking
