T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 is now being updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

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?

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

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.
