AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge are getting updated to Android 5.1.1

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge are getting updated to Android 5.1.1
AT&T customers toting the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge are both expected to soon be updated to Android 5.1.1. There is speculation that this will be a fairly large sized update, over 700MB, for a new Android build. But those who have the international version of the Galaxy Note 4 are reporting that the phablet is snappier post-update, with animations moving faster and smoother.

The Android 5.1.1 update for the two models also helps improve the performance of the rear camera on each phone, and could include security patches to prevent the Stagefright vulnerability from being used by hackers, to take control of your handset. AT&T hasn't made it clear yet whether the update includes this security protection.

Once you receive notification that the update is ready to be downloaded and installed, you should immediately make sure that you are hooked up to a Wi-Fi network, especially with the size of the files being so huge. Also, make sure that you have your battery charged to at least 50% before you start the updating process.

Because the update is sent out OTA on a staggered basis (it is not yet available to update via Kies), you might not see it hit your Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge for a few days yet. If you are an AT&T customer with either handset, keep your eyes peeled for the notification that it has arrived on your device.

Uhhh. Not Marshmallow? Can't wait to get 6s plus. Proper updates and no carrier bloat.

You won't be disappointed at all. It's extremely fast, battery is insane, and the updates are pushed instantly. I switched to iOS solely because of the update process.

That's about the only thing that'd tempt me. Windows phones do pretty well for updates as well. I think MS cares more about that than Google.

Yes fast fragmented updates initially and only version change later. Good, you like updates more than technology. Thought you are too good technically. My bad sir

And no actual optimization over the large screen, no multiwindow for iPhone 6/S model what a let down... Sad but true the update for Samsung was so late because they had so many model, but i still prefer Samsung anyway even after few updates i feel iOS was lacking feature.

Touchwiz lollipop runs super well. Just because it's not M doesn't mean it's not a great update. It's time for you clowns to open your mind a bit and not be shackled by titles and the number 6.0. Stock Android is overatted.

You guys do know that this is by choice right? They could use stock if they wanted to but then if they did Bobby buster would be right. No one would make money on Android. The bottom line is touchwiz lollipop is almost as new as M. Why bitch? The only thing new is doze and an uglier App drawer. The Nexus 5 might need doze but none of the other skins do. Would you stop bitching if they Used tizen? They wouldn't have the playstore but they would dictate the updates like Apple does. Not sure what makes dictating the updates so special though. It's not.

I never experience stock Android, people seems quite fond of it. Like iOS in my opinion it maybe fast but lacking some feature that's why i prefer Touchwiz, maybe Xperia UI is perfect? - it's somewhere in between stock & TW.
