T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge get firmware update

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Android smartphone gets another Lollipop update
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Although Android Marshmallow has been around for a while and both handsets are fully capable to run it, they only got another Lollipop update.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge on T-Mobile have just received new software updates. Unfortunately, those waiting to receive the big Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will be disappointed, because that is not happening yet.

The handsets' firmware versions will go up to G920TUVU3DOJ7 and G925TUVU3DOJ7, both being based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The changelog for the Galaxy S6 Edge includes the following:

  • battery life optimization
  • improved overall performance
  • security improvements
  • Milk Video has been removed
  • call stability improvements
  • closing unused applications optimization

The changes are about the same for both handsets, as both have about the same size (96-97 MB) and the official support pages only mention "software improvements, Google Security update, various bug fixes and improvements." In addition to the above, it may be useful to know that once the update has been finished, it is impossible to downgrade due to the security policy updates.

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.
