Here's Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in action (video)

Just two days ago, we reported that some Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users in Hungary have been treated to an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update on their phones. We are dealing with the Snapdragon 805-powered SM-N910F variation, in particular. This surprised us a bit, because we are expecting the newer Galaxy Note 5 to score the Marshmallow update first, with the Note 4 allegedly getting it in February 2016. It seems like this is an isolated rollout, a soak test of sorts, so the rest of the Note 4 users across the globe should expect the latest Android flavor sometime in Q1 of next year.

Here's Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in action (video)
Thanks to a new video that popped up yesterday, we get to see Android Marshmallow on the Note 4 in action. The majority of noteworthy features are showcased, most importantly a new Air Command menu and the cool screen-off memo feature, both of which are coming straight from the Galaxy Note 5

Additionally, the Note 5 has also "donated" many of its stock icons to its older sibling. Marshmallow's battery life-improving Doze and Google Now on Tap are also on board. It seems that there aren't any other notable changes in tow; rest assured that we will keep you updated if anything else pops in.

Check out the video right below to see the Marshmallow version of TouchWiz running on the Note 4. Now, we noticed that the interface occasionally lags quite a lot in the demonstration video. It is said that the change of the system language is the likely culprit for the unimpressive UI performance. Additionally, we should not forget that we are dealing with a soak test, so issues are to be expected. 

Hopefully, these will be fixed in the final release of Android Marshmallow for the Note 4. By the way, feel free to check out our review of the latest version of the OS right here.

Great, hopefully it will stop the Note 4 users whining about updates.

Next time they do I'll remind them they got Marshmallow before the Note 5.

I don't think this was supposed to happen. It looks rushed and unfinished.

The best it can be is a soak test. Or maybe it mistakenly got leaked.

Not sure it really matters why it was released.

To me its acceptable, just change the animation to x0.5 instead of the default x1. Work well for me.

I use to put it to zeros which is nice for geeks but if you want to show it to friends about how quick and smooth the phone is, 0.5x is better trust me :P

I was so tired of the lag in my Note 4, every frikin time I used the phone. It felt so slow at times that I regretted spending 700$ on it. My SD801 running Oneplus One is way faster and smoother than this. Finally I ditched it for a sweet 450$ Moto X Style, updated to Marshmallow with a 128GB SD Card to make an awesome 150GB Internal Storage. Best Decision of My Life..!!

Please send me your email so I can record a video and send it to you to show the crappy lag on mine. Its At&T version so maybe that is the difference. If your does not lag then good for you.

Isn't its 160GB? I mean 32+128 is 160 GB or is it 16+128?

29. iampun33t (Posts: 69; Member since: 17 Apr 2013)


SD Card system used some memory. Plus some memory is used by Android after formatting the SD Card to use this functionality. So 32 GB + 128 GB (Technically) = 150 GB (Practically)

If your does not lag, good for you. Mine did, it bugged me, hence my switch. Anyway mine was a AT&T Version so maybe theres something there.

There is no doubt its fake no new touchwiz only some picked features of it????? Impossible samsung is not this level of stupidness to do that and if they did i think they should start fucusing on dishwashers industry cuz idont believe that any note 4 owner including me ofcourse would pay money for there craps again so yes they will port the hole new touchwiz not just 2 or 3 stupid usless features of it this is wat they did in note 3 and this is wat's gonna happen in note 4

It is fake. Look at the icons and the UI design in overall.

What's making me mad is the ram 800$ i gave paid for a crappy pdt from company samsung made an awesome hardware in note 4 but they completely destroyed it with their freaking stupid update for ppl whpdidnt notice this is the old touchwiz they have just changed the icons shape and added 2 or more usless features this is the last major update for note 4 (ofcourse 6.1 won't add a lot ) so if ut didnt have the new touchwiz now it won't have it ever NOTE 4 SALES WAS GREATLY AFFECTED BY NOTE 3 WHEN IT GOT IT'S TOUCHWIZ SO THEY HAVE LEARNED FROM THEIR MISTAKE BY NOT PORTING THE NEW TOUCHWIZ TO NOTE 4 NOT TO AFFECT NOTE 5 SALES
SUMMARY : SAMSUNG CARES ONLY ABOUT DAM MONEY WITH NO RESPECT TO CONSUMERS.

So for all the complainers who were animate about the 5.1.1 update to the 4 not including the new Note 5/S6 UI, now you can stop complaining.

Looks pretty good I guess.

maybe the lag issue can fixed by performing a reboot.

Oh God, the video is irritating!

The guy is stuttering more than the phone, not because of a language problem, but because he seams unfocused and aimless in his approach.

And the marshmallow update on the Note 4 seems half baked and needs lots of fine tuning. The lollipop is now very stable and smooth (on my Note 4 at least) so hope Samsung irons all the wrinkles of the marshmallow update before releasing it in the wild.
What's good on the other hand is that it seems Samsung is actively working on the marshmallow update (previous ETD was February 2016), and probably next January we will see it released to most versions worldwide.

Long live the Note 4 - king of smart phablets
