T-Mobile testing Android 6.0 updates for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge

T-Mobile testing Android 6.0 updates for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge
T-Mobile owners with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge are no doubt excited to hear that both phones are moving up the ladder toward the Android 6.0 update. On T-Mobile's software update page, the carrier has listed the phones as being in the "Testing" stage for Marshmallow. That is the second stage out of three.

According to the site, the first step is Manufacturer Development. At this stage, T-Mobile and the manufacturer of the device both agree to support a software update. After that comes Testing during which the device goes through the T-Mobile certification process. The last stage, Completed, means that the update has received the approval to launch, and the software is available for T-Mobile to disseminate it.

The T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are still going through the necessary testing, and while we don't know how much longer until Android 6.0 is running on the handsets, T-Mobile subscribers with either model are now a step closer to receiving the update. Android 6.0 includes Doze, which puts your phone into a deep sleep state to improve battery life. Google Now on Tap provides contextual search results based on the content of your screen. And app permissions can be approved on a feature-by-feature basis.

Still testing Android 6.0 at this time? It's pretty late, T-Mo! Nexus FTW.

This is one of the reasons why I buy unlocked phones.

People always say that carrier phones takes longer time to get updates.. I got unlocked note5 and carrier devices are getting it faster than me.

in my opinion Samsung this year did almost perfect, phones are exceptional, even i get samsung s6 edge option, me being biggest touchwiz hater, but seeing that there is Android N out for testing and i still dont have android 6.0 is sad, i am thinking to switch to nexus 6p. my girlfriend has android 6.0 on her htc one m8 for couple months already..
