LG G5, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ get updates on Verizon
Having only just pushed Android Marshmallow out to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, Verizon has just dropped a further update to both devices along with the LG G5. With the holy grail of Marshmallow already available to these devices one Big Red, this more recent update is a comparatively minor bump. Included in the parcel are a couple of UI tweaks and small feature enhancements, along with some security patches. 

The modular G5 from LG is still fledgling, while the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ are nearing their life cycles with the Galaxy Note 6 now looming. With these latest updates, the G5 gets software build number VS98712A. The care package offers aesthetic adjustments to Visual Voice Mail, alterations to airplane mode, and will now allow users to monitor data usage for Microsoft Exchange Active Server. 

The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, meanwhile, get build VRU2BPD4. Therein, users can expect the latest Android security patches, general bug fixes, and the new-found, optional ability to answer video calls as voice calls. 

Full change logs can be found at the source for the G5, S6 edge+ and Note 5 respectively. If you do happen to download the update, let us know how you get on with it via the comments.

Do these also get injected with massive bloat ware like the S7?

I installed the update, and the Note 5 simply stays the best large phone in the world.

Gotta say, I'm surprised at Verizon getting the updates out before the others. It's so out of character.

What's with the old logo? It's been 8 months since the new logo launched.
