Verizon's Galaxy Note Edge gets its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update
Verizon continues its Android 6.0 Marshmallow rollout for Samsung Galaxy smartphones. The latest in the series to receive its Marshmallow update is the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the curved-screen sibling of the Galaxy Note 4, which has received its Marshmallow update last week.

The VRU2CPD1 software update that Verizon is now pushing to the Samsung Galaxy Edge Note includes the usual Android 6.0 Marshmallow features such as Google Now on Tap, the new battery-saving Doze mode, and the granular app permissions. On top of that, Verizon has also include bonus features such as WiFi Calling, general bug fixes, and performance improvements.

Overall, this update appears to be highly similar to Verizon's N910VVRU2CPD1 update for the Galaxy Note 4, which makes a lot of sense given that the only hardware difference between the two handsets is the curved display of the Galaxy Note Edge. 

Speaking of the curved display, many people find the Galaxy Note Edge to be the most useful implementation of Samsung's curved Super AMOLED technology. The more modern Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge +, and Galaxy S7 Edge come with a display that curves along both sides, but some find that the low curvature makes the edges too small to be actually useful. The display of the Galaxy Note Edge, on the other hand, only curves along the right side of the phone, but the larger edge size allows for more information to be displayed and for larger UI elements.

You can try manually checking for the update by heading over to the Settings menu, but bear in mind that the OTA update is rolling out it batches, meaning that not all of you will get it at the same time.
