T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 is now being updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow
A couple of months ago, Samsung started rolling out an official Android Marshmallow update for the international version of the Galaxy S5 - the company's flagship smartphone of 2014. Not long after that, Sprint updated its variants of the handset, and, now, T-Mobile is also bringing Marshmallow to its Galaxy S5.

Owners of T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S5 should get the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update over the air beginning today, May 23. The update weighs in at a bit over 1 GB, and, besides bringing all the good stuff that Marshmallow has to offer, it includes a "device slowness fix", as well as the May Android security patch.

Now over 2 years old, the Samsung Galaxy S5 can still be purchased from T-Mobile, but only as a certified pre-owned device - costing $299.99 outright. Whether or not customers are still interested in buying the Galaxy S5, it's good to see that a device which initially ran Android 4.4. KitKat is being updated to Marshmallow, isn't it?

Had a customer bring in a Note 4 with 6.0.1 on it and it killed their speaker, and makes the phone freeze up every 10-15 seconds, then it'll work, then freeze up again. This was after being on for 5+ minutes.

kill it with fire.....quick....working for said carrier, and dealing with botched s6 updates (yes engineering is engaged with Samsung on updates that are screwing up phones when going to 6.x), this is just another pain point to deal with. Please Samsung don't let this be like the s6 update....please

I am going to switch back from CM13 because a lot of people are saying performance and battery life is the best it has ever been.
