Why the need? We've already got multi window. We've already got battery saving modes. Now on Tap, if you don't have it already, is a gimmick. etc. Would be nice, but... unless you actually have a Samsung, you really wouldn't need an update (besides security updates i mean).

I just got Marshmallow for my unlocked note 5 a few days ago so this update would probably take a few months.

I just got a security update on my note 5 yesterday. Still don't have marshmallow though. But for me no biggie, I will get it when I get it.

Try sammobile, download the firmware and flash it through ODIN. Pretty straight forward process, with no data loss.

Whatever. None of my Samsung devices has been updated in forever. They are the worst. Might as well get an unlocked Chinese phone. Same level of service.

I got an alert from the Smart Manager App this afternoon saying there is a security update and it turned out to be just 563 KB in size. I then had to re-login to gmail before i could access my mail. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A. Is that the update?
