Android 6.0 Marshmallow review: S'more to love

October 5, 2016, will be remembered as the day when Google decided it is high time it released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow factory images onto the world. That's right, they are up for a couple of compatible Nexus devices — namely Nexus 5,6,7, and 9 — and just anyone rocking one of the mentioned handsets might get immersed in the marshmallow-y taste of Android 6.0...

What does healing with iOS means? BobbyBuster is a troll comment but not sure about healing though. Be together, not the same!

You can call it "trolling" but the fact remains that lollipop was a terrible release. So don't get salty at me about it. Google shouldn't have rushed out a half baked os version out.

Yeah because Apple has never done that. Nope not once.

How many updates has Apple had to rush out since iOS9 in just the last couple weeks to fix several issues plaguing the iPhone? And iOS8 was in every possible way so much worse than Lollipop on its worst day. But you never see Mxyzptlk say anything about that unless called out on it like I am now.

Oh look here's my groupie girl coming to spew more b.s. Hey Scott maybe you should actually try "reading" my comments before you respond. This is not an Apple article. I've called them out before.

You've never called out Apple unless it's in response to a post like mine where you've been pointed out as being a hypocrite. If I'm wrong then share a link to an article where you said Apple f*cked up without someone else prompting you to do it and I'll say I'm sorry. If you can't do that then keep your mouth shut on the matter.

33. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Don't get salty just because you were put in your place. You started spewing bs and you got owned. Just stop starting craps and maybe I wouldn't make you my b- each time.

Stop dodging the question ignorant troll and answer me. Provide a link to an article where you called out Apple for their failures and I'll leave you alone.

35. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't have to do a thing you say. Unless you plan on asking me in a more civilized way, don't expect me to answer you. Besides it's not like you're going to accept the answer.

That's what I though, nothing but talk. I didn't think you were up to the challenge. Though it's not like you had a chance to begin with, you knew you were full of crap.

46. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Nothing but talk? Like you aren't guilty of the same thing. Lol you're just a salty little hypocrite. You're mad because what I said was true.

47. Scott93274

You're just mad because you know I'm right. I challenge you to prove me wrong. "Provide a link to an article where you called out Apple for their failures and I'll leave you alone". It's as simple as that.

50. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You're not right, you're just talking out of your behind again. It's as simple as you shutting up.

"Provide a link to an article where you called out Apple for their failures and I'll leave you alone". It's as simple as that. If you say that you've "called them out before." then prove it. I'm calling bull sh*t. You're a troll talking crap about companies pointing out things you don't like about then when the company you love does so much worse, and you never say a damn thing unless prompted to by someone such as myself who calls you on it.

52. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Right and you're a groupie girl who continues to get salty every time I say something about Motorola. Lol I get it, you're trying to be the new Sniggly. You aren't. You're just that little kid who wants to "fit in" because no one pays any attention to anything he says. You've seen several of my comments where I've said I will be getting the Pure Edition over the 6S. Don't sit and tell me I've never said it because you've commented on it many times before.

"Provide a link to an article where you called out Apple for their failures and I'll leave you alone". It's as simple as that. I think you'll say anything for the opportunity to have justification to troll later, "Oh, I owned the moto x and it sucked". That's the way you work. And you still haven't proven me wrong by posting a link to an article where you were critical of Apple without being prompted from others calling you out as a hypocrite. And the simple reason is you can't. No matter how many time you say that you have, you haven't. You talk sh*t because you're full of sh*t.

55. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It's as simple as this: I chose to go for the PE over the Note 5 and the 6S as my personal daily driver. Are you really this dense? Obviously there's a reason otherwise I would be getting the 6S especially since I've said it several times before I want the new multiwindow feature from the iPads available on the iPhone. Search for it yourself, of course, you won't do it because you're a troll and you're immune to anything that proves you wrong. Checkmate groupie girl.

You won't bother looking for it because you know damn well that you have never been critical of Apple for the things that they're guilty of more so than what you accuse Motorola or Google of doing. You're the troll here, everyone says so, not just me. you're the one that goes to every Motorola, BlackBerry article insulting their devices. Do I do that with Apple? No, I do not. That doesn't mean that I haven't spoken poorly of them, they do a lot of stuff that I disagree with, but I'm not blinded by sheep like behavior to not see issues with the companies I like. And I've also spoken positively of Apple as well, even to the point of being accused of being an Apple Fanboy. The same can never be said of you because you're an ignorant troll that is long overdue to have their account deleted.

57. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Cut the crap out groupie girl. You either put up or just shut the f- up. You're just a a bitter groupie girl who ignores reason. I told you if I am getting a PE over the 6S theeen that should tell you right there. You're just too ignorant to see it.

25. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Don't deflect on me.

They absolutely rushed it out and it was still slow to adoption. This is a post by a site I frequent besides my usual Android Authority. https://www.androidpit.com/android-5-0-lollipop-problems-and-solutions iOS didn't have near these issues. Not even close to be honest. And even the ones they did, they update their phones quickly to repair the issues. Some of these devices with these problems will never receive an update. There is a lot of circumstances for Android's slow update rollout, but Google needs to do something besides Nexus and One devices. People will continue to buy Android on value proposition, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be held to a higher standard regardless if their OS is "free" and customizable. There needs to be better quality control.

Agree with WallStreetWolf, Google do need to improve on their software update model. I suggest that Google push Android One branding to more 1st tier OEM like Sony, HTC, LG, Huiwei. Market Android One aggressively so that its worth the OEM while to release phone with Android One branding.
