Deja Vu: Another unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 unit accidentally receives update to Android 6.0.1
posted by Alan F. / Jan 25, 2016, 10:24 AM
Android 6.0.1 is expected to hit unlocked Galaxy S5 models in April. The update includes Doze, a feature that increases the standby time (and battery life) on an Android handset by putting the phone into a deep sleep state. App permissions are changed with Android users able to accept or deny permissions on a feature-by-feature basis. And Google Now On Tap returns search results based on the content found on the device's screen.
You can check out some screenshots from the updated Galaxy S5 by clicking on the slideshow below. And if you are the proud owner of an unlocked Galaxy S5, you can feel secure in your knowledge that each day will bring you closer to the update expected to take place in April. As for those with a carrier-branded version of the phone, we feel your pain.

Good, give everyone the latest software, what's the problem? The new options don't seem hardware intensive...

Well, it seems that we will only get our Samsung phones update by accident. My Note 5 was supposed to be running on marshmallow for more than a month now, just like how they "promised" that they will deliver 6.0 to S6 and S6 Edge by January.

I'm still on freaking 4.4.2 after updating to Lollipop and having too many bugs and app compatibility issues, and it looks like I'll have my Galaxy S7 before this gets Marshmallow.

4.4.2 was smooth, fast and relatively bug free on my s4. The ui ain't that attractive though when compared to the likes of lollipop based tw. The battery life was exceptional as well. Ported custom roms have made the experience on lollipop much better but still I do miss how stable and rock solid kitkat was.

From what I understand it isn't really samsung or other creators of android, but the phone companies that want to brand the android software that slows it down, this branding however is something that's being worked on being outlawed at least in EU.

Well still waiting for the update on the galaxy s6 I don't know if it was a good idea to by an s6 I had to choose between the s6 n the IPhone 6 since the nexus 6 where too big for my liking so I don't know if I made the right choice I'm beginning to regret it especially about the money I spent on it, it must be running the latest software months ago i could've easily bought an iPhone, I like the phone don't get me wrong but I'm sick of waiting updates to come when you see phones lesser on money n specs getting it, well I don't know if I'll keep it or swap it for a nexus or iphone

I got some update a while ago in my unlocked S5 ... first it said it was 1.2GB, but I had to clean up some storage. After I did, I ended up downloading only roughly 400MB (my first security patch). Is it safe to assume i could have "mistakenly" updated to Marshmallow though :O! ... I'll never know :'(

Where are all those Samsung is the greatest trolls? It's been months and still no update in site, Sammy purposely with hold the update so they can show the newest version on the S7. But apple is the one screwing over people right?
