Here are some photos of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge running Android 6 Marshmallow


It was just about a month ago when we first saw leaks of Samsung's upcoming Android 6 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. In the following weeks, we were treated to a video of a Marshmallow-toting Galaxy Note 4, and heard about a public beta test of the new software, heading to a select few users in the UK. If you are just hearing about this now – sorry, but all the slots are taken. But fret not, the kind fellows at SamMobile have got the beta installed on a standard Galaxy S6 and a Galaxy S6 edge and were kind enough to share a bunch of photos of the phones running the new OS.

At first look – not much has changed. If you've used a high-end 2015 Sammy smartphone, you will feel right at home. The UI seems to have naturally progressed to a sleeker, flatter look, with more transparency and blur effects added when certain edit screens are open. There are a few new sorting options, including a pretty cool app search menu. And the Galaxy S6 / S6 edge will get the full-on Pro mode for the camera that the Note 5 has! To clarify – yes, the Galaxy S6 does have its own Pro mode, but it is currently less elaborate than the one in the Note 5, as it is lacking a shutter speed control, and having a limited 5-step white balance slider.

And hey, if you've missed it – from the aforementioned Note 4 video, it seems that the 2014 phablet will get the same new and rehashed interface. Would that make it as snappy as the Note 5? Let's hope so!

Yep. Everywhere I go, everyone has his face buried in one. Sitting, walking, driving, doesn't matter. It's much easier than conversing with other people.

If you're going to switch from a Samsung device to a completely different platform because you can't get Marshmallow right away, then I doubt you own a Samsung smartphone.

I'm not in a rush for them to release a software revision to the public just for the sake of a number change. If spending a few extra months on it means they optimize performance and efficiency more thoroughly, then I'll be happy with a current version that is stable in the meantime.

I too. I prefer to wait longer for more stable OS update, than get it quickly with bugs.

Is it weird that I have started to actually like Touchwiz UI?

Really not liking the whole transparent border around the non-Samsung apps. Way too iOS like. That's one thing I love about Android is how icons can have their own individual shapes and looks. Thank god for the ability to change launchers because this icon crap makes me like Touchwiz even less.

They should use more black instead of white on Amoled screens as it saves battery. No wonder why everyone is complaining about horrible battery-life on these phones :-(
