AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S6 receives mystery update

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S6 receives mystery update
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S6 on AT&T are beginning to receive an update that weighs in at 237MB. No changelist has been made available, and the update leaves the handset at Android 5.0.2. Just yesterday, a 159.29MB update was pushed out for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge that improves the fingerprint scanner, adds a new feature to the Photo editor and enhance the UI of apps such as Email, Music, S Planner and more.

A better match might be the 138.32MB update that was pushed out last week to European Galaxy S6 users in Europe. That update was sent out to correct a problem with memory management that was forcing apps in the background to close earlier than they should have been. Those who installed the update found that their Galaxy S6 was "snappier" after installing the file.

If you're an AT&T subscriber and have had your Galaxy S6 updated, drop us some comments in the box below about any changes you've noticed to your phone. As of now, AT&T has nothing listed about it on its website.

Should be a law that requires all updates to have an update log. We have a right to know what additional spy software is installed on our phones..

What they didn't add to the list: breaking root from the Exynos exploit

Samsung (together with AT&T) is becoming more like Apple by the day.
