Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 finally gets its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 finally gets its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update
Verizon is now finally updating the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update reached the unlocked versions of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge back in mid-February, and then later extended to other 2015 flagships such as the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. While that's far from matching Motorola's timely Android updates, at least Samsung appears to have improved in pace compared to previous years.

While things didn't go nearly as smooth for those rocking older high-end phones from Samsung on Verizon's network in the US, it looks like the situation is finally improving. Just last week, Verizon started pushing the Marshmallow update for the Samsung Galaxy S5, and now it's time for the Galaxy Note 4 to receive the Marshmallow treatment.

The new update for the Verizon version of the Galaxy Note 4 will bring the device to software version N910VVRU2CPD1. Aside from the usual Marshmallow goodies - such as Google Now on Tap, the new battery-saving Dose mode, and the granular app permissions - the update also brings along Wi-Fi calling, an update to the app icons, audio quality improvements, as well as Android for Work.

As with all OTA roll-outs, the update will not reach every Galaxy Note 4 unit on Verizon at the same time. You can perform a manual check for the update from the Note 4's Settings menu, but know that the phone automatically checks for new updates once every few hours and will launch a notification when it finds that new software version is available.

Ah! Its never too late when it comes to Samsung...!!! And no; I'm not hinting at iPhones... I'm pointing at my Nexus 5...! Hmmm... I wonder why some people LOVE Sammy so much? Bloated and complex OS, slow as snail updates, occasional stutter and lag if you're operating a budget to mid-range Galaxy (and even so called 'Flagships' aren't immune to these problems) and last not but not the least: THEY ARE BLOODY EXPENSIVE!!! A pathetic 32-Bit 1.3Ghz Cortex A7 with ancient Mali-400 SoC that was made by nothing but The infamous Spreadtrum from Motherland of China is going for $150 U.S Dollars here...! Galaxy J1, anyone? Not even a Mediatek, eh Sammy? Let alone a Snapdragon...! And yet they say that iPhones are overpriced, Ha! Blindfolded fools... G'Day!

You know this has nothing to do with Samsung right? It's mainly Verizons fault

Well, instead of personal blows; Why not answer my question instead? How come an iPhone is expensive, whereas a Galaxy J1 isn't...?

Well because an iPhone is a high-end phone and the Galaxy J1 is a entry-level phone. The S7 knocks any iPhone out the park (in most aspects).

I don't love Samsung, but my Note 5 is the best there is by a country mile. There's literally not a phone out there I'd trade it for.
