Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update hits the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge on T-Mobile

Heads up, Galaxy S6 & S6 edge owners on T-Mobile! The Magenta-colored carrier is now spreading the Android 6.0.1 update for both devices across America. Weighing in at a meaty 1.2GB, the update brings the Galaxy S6 to software version G920TUVU3EPD1, and the Galaxy S6 edge to software version G925TUVU3EPD1.

Unfortunately, there's no detailed changelog available, but we do have a clue about the update's contents from releases by other carriers and logs published by Google. The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge should get additional quick settings toggles for Private Mode in the status bar, more than 200 new emojis, improved visibility of notification panel icons, and a new ‘Install overnight’ option that will apply updates at night, between 2 and 5 AM. Also, if a fingerprint isn’t recognized, users will receive vibration feedback. Moreover, the Android 6.0.1. Marshmallow update contains the latest security patches for the month of December.

Those looking to update their handsets can either wait for a prompt, or simply head to the Settings > About phone, tap the 'Check for updates' option and try their luck at forcing the update!

If it makes you feel any better, T-mo served 5.1.1 faster than any other carrier, even faster than my international S6.

That's nice but my T-Mobile S6 Edge+ came out almost nine months ago and Marshmallow is still in manufacturer development. Whether it be Samsung or T-Mobile's fault, it's beyond pathetic at this point. I'd gladly go with a Nexus seeing as I care a lot of my device being up to date, but unfortunately, I also care alot about device aesthetics, and neither current gen Nexus even comes close to being as gorgeous and as pleasant to look at as the Galaxy S6/S7 family of devices.

You can always buy the international variant, since they 'usually' get pretty quick updates. Nexus is a good choice but google always gimps up the hardware. The snail-slow storage + poor encryption makes the 5X and 6P feel like 2014 devices. Not to mention the lack of OIS and cool new technology.

Will an international variant support T-Mobile's bands? I'd gladly consider getting one for the faster updates.

Yes the International variant (SM-G920I) supports the T-Mobile band. I had this phone with MetroPCS which runs on T-Mobile network. If you want Samsung Pay then don't get this model, that was the reason why i switched to the SM-G920T unlocked.

None of these fools can afford to pay for the International variant, because they can only afford to make the monthlay payments. I get so tired of peopel complaining about slow updates. Be glad you're gettign an update because your device doesnt have to get one, nor is there a promise to get one. Your device is design to run the software it comes it. The only updates it should get is patches, not new builds of Android. Who cares if its takes even a year to get an update. As long as it works and gives no problem. I rather wait 9 months for an update for a phone that is working just like is did after I bought it, and after I update it; versus Apple who has had 9 updates in 6 months due to breaking an update with an update which broke another update 9 times over.

Marshmallow is not in "manufacturer development" the update has rolled out to various devices globally over 3 weeks ago. One of the reasons I buy the global models I cant stand carriers and their bulls**t

Yeah, after doing a bit of research I strongly believe the lack of update as of yet is 100% T-Mobile's fault.

AT&T sucks they have locked bootloaders on their phone, which prevents their customers from enjoying custom roms.

If I don't get the update by the end of April on my AT&T Note5, I probably will sell and get a factory unlocked model. Faster updates and much less bloatware, plus AT&T removes some Samsung things that actually seem useful.
