In addition to the latest major Android build, this update comes without the bloatware previously added by Asus.

Android Marshmallow updates are nothing more but another ubiquitous topic these days, but when it comes to the Asus ZenFone 2 Laser, there is something more. While users of this handset will enjoy the move to Android 6.0, the best part of the new firmware is that it comes without the bloatware Asus usually installs on its Android devices.

As everyone should know by now, Android Marshmallow comes with Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, new emojis, granular permissions, as well as multiple minor fixes and tweaks. Obviously, the latest security updates are also included. Asus ZenFone 2 Laser users will also get rid of a long list of pre-loaded apps that includes Omlet, Asus Backup, Yahoo Shopping, TripAdvisor, Dr.eye, Puffin Browser, and more.

In addition to the above, Asus Email, Asus Calendar, and Asus Messaging have also been removed. However, three new ones are now pre-loaded - Google Calendar, Google Messenger, and Dr. Booster. As it usually happens with OTA firmware updates, those who did not get the notification can go to Settings>About>System Update to check manually.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
