AT&T Samsung Galaxy S6 finally sees Android Marshmallow update
posted by Ben R. / May 17, 2016, 11:41 AM
The Android Marshmallow update for Samsung's Galaxy S6 has been doing the rounds for a while now. Numerous carriers, including Telus in Canada and T-Mobile in the United States, have since pushed the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out to users. Those wielding last year's flagship on AT&T have been left sitting on their hands, but finally, the long-awaited update is here.
This article serves as a run-down of Marshmallow's greatest assets, while this post offers a hands-on look at what's new with the Galaxy S6 and TouchWiz once Marshmallow-fied.As you'd expect, it's quite a sizable update of almost 1.5 GB in size. Once you've downloaded and applied it, though, you'll be able to enjoy all of the well-documented features and quirks of Google's latest bundle.
Since it's a large update, you'll want to be connected to Wi-Fi and ensure that you have at least 20 percent battery before proceeding. If you are an AT&T Galaxy S6 owner and have been waiting for some Marshmallow loving, head over to Settings --> About device on your handset and check for updates.
Once you've downloaded and applied the new firmware, be sure to let us know in the comments how you're getting on with it.

Bet it won't crash out or get bricked from the update. I bet this update won't be followed by 10 more. I bet this device is less likely to fail.

It probably has the same firmware as the normal variant that got the update like 6 months ago, with better security patch. Carriers are late because they are lazy, not because they have better software. They also have to make sure their bloat works.

The problem is you're focusing on the things in life that don't really matter. When I was a kid I had hopes and dreams. We all did. But over time, the daily grind gets in the way and you miss the things that really matter, even though they are right in front of you, staring you in the face. I think the next time you should ask yourself "Am I on the right track here?". I don't mean to be rude but people like you I really pity. So maybe you could use the few brain cells you have and take advantage of the knowledge I have given you now. Good luck.

No, it'll be broken by Samsung's RAM heavy software and overzealous task killer. I'll post my links again to prove how wrong you are, Techie: http://www.phonearena.com/news

ATT is the slowest carrier to push out updates! it used to be VZW acting like this but looks like they switch sides..i will NEVER buy a carrier branded phone again, total waste of money, buy straight from the phone maker!! and the MM updates are only 6.0 while MM 6.0.1 is the latest update for the OS, all phones that got the MM 6.0 will never see another update from ATT, ull have to buy a new phone to get the new OS and updates are the words of ATT telling their costumers...i have the G3 (MM 6.0 update that was REALLY needed) called about the wifi calling and they told me that G3 cant do wifi calling and i would have to buy the G4 some othe LG phone and crap load of iphones..t-mobile here i come!
