Are you excited about Android 6.0 Marshmallow? (poll results)

Are you excited about Android 6.0 Marshmallow? (poll results)
Tick-tock, tick-tock, the new Nexus phones are coming! And with them — something we're sure some have forgotten — arrives Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest major update to Google's mobile platform. If history is any indication, we'll see several devices getting the new goods before the year is out, and the majority in the first months of 2016.

With that in mind, we thought it's high time we took the public's pulse and saw how they felt about Marshmallow. And the results are already in.

With 55.46% of the votes, it's fair to say that the majority of folks who participated are definitely excited about the new goodies in the software. In contrast, 17.25% of voters dismiss Marshmallow and aren't really interested in Google's engineer's work. Finally, the remaining 27.29% of votes belong to members of our audience that are neither excited, nor disinterested in the upcoming update.

While we should technically call this a win for Marshmallow, it's obviously not a convincing one, and the comment section below the original poll speaks volumes. Whether because Lollipop — the current most recent major version — ended up causing trouble with their devices, or because they just don't see too much user benefit with the new changes, people aren't exactly unable to contain their glee at the prospect of Marshmallow. That makes a certain amount of sense, especially since the majority of us won't get to experience it for quite some time to come, courtesy of Android's unfortunate — but understandable — fragmentation.

This update is purely to fix Lollipop issues and it could be aswell 5.2 Nothing exciting IMO because multitasking was already implemented by most manufacturers and apps permissions are in mobile OS's for ages now

Nope. Not excited. Darth Vader is Android and Luke Skywalker is iOS :)

I know right. Android is loved my everyone as a prime example of being the most powerful and popular, and iOS is just a wannabe playing catchup. Good analogy :)

Don't say that. People will get angry and become zombies.

I heard f Darth Vader but never met him. Luke Skywalker is a total mystery since i've never heard of him. Let's just put it more simple - I don't know what you're talking about :-(

The only reason i am looking for Marshmallow is "Memory Management", which fixed most of the internal lollipop memeory leaks issues.

What's with these horrendous ads that block my entire screen saying s**t like ''it will be gone in 10 seconds"?

Yes, but be happy: at least the pop up windows from the text disappeared...

Of course every Android user with Lollipop looks forward to Android 6.0. Only those with Windows phones and iPhones are hence not looking forward to Android 6.0. If only Android user voted the percentage of yes-voters would probably be between 98-100 %
