Nice, just 4 months before the next release of Android! Well done Samsung! That is really reflecting your aspiration to be global market leader.

It's actually, one year later than the release of S6. One year cycles.

The update cycles on samsung devices are shocking. Lg, sony, motorola etc are like 2 mths ahead of them with the marshmallow update and i still have not recieved it yet.

Motorola was 2 months ahead with their last flagship: my UK Moto X 2nd gen received it exactly two months to today, on December 15.

Been rocking the newest Android on my moto x play since more than 2 months and its by no mean a flagship lol.
Moto G 2015 will receive the update soon ( the carrier i work for said in next 2 weeks )
So even moto G a low end device will have it at the carrier level before samsung S6.

Not Sony, z5 doesn't have marshmallow yet.
Yes, Samsung is late but their marshmallow build has really new features and has improved a lot. Plus they did beta testing which means final ROM won't be a buggy mess.
After bearing the laggy terrible 5.1.1 touchwiz for 6 months, I would not like to see another buggy ROM. I can wait a few days.

6.0.1 isn't any smoother than 5.1.1 :(
RAM Management hasn't been fixed either.

How do you know that 6.0.1 isn't faster than previous version? I assume we never realized that you are an insider and you know everything.

Ameran instead of been a hater think for a second.. They been doing beta test for sometime now the Rom for the beta test is also out there on the web...

There are tons of videos in Youtube showing the S6 running Marshmallow.
And let me tell you Official isn't suddenly fix RAM management.
It's gonna be the exact same 99% like the beta one :)

on what phone? on the S6 this is not true..1000x better than 5.1.1

I have significant number of sources proving otherwise.

Not true. I never really had a problem in practice with RAM management (which I think has been overblown to death), but UI stutters are finally gone on Marshmallow.
23. marorun (Posts: 3572; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)
Overblown? Well depend.
HTC M9 can open 4-5 high end game and switch between them whitout lag and S6 cant whitout reloading them...
Thats just the reality

24. marorun (Posts: 3572; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)
Its not even out because Carrier will take a few months as usuall..

Screw you all. Every single one of you with unlocked phones. My jealousy cannot be measured.

If it makes you feel any better, i have unlocked s6 and i won't get marshmallow anytime soon, because samsung only cares about G920f and i have g920i

Now for the Note 5 update, been waiting since December to get it.
20. hwb01 (Posts: 291; Member since: 17 Apr 2014)
Note5? I thought Note5 was supposed to get the update first?
26. irossdrummer (Posts: 132; Member since: 17 Jan 2015)
