T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 5 gets Android Marshmallow
Back in late 2015, a very early Android Marshmallow-based firmware for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 was spotted online. Now the long testing period is finally over, and T-Mobile has already begun to deliver the new update via OTA. As usual, those in a hurry can check for the update manually.
Next to the usual Android Marshmallow goodies, it should be noted that this update removes Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. However, this only means that the latest versions will remain while the preloaded apps located on the system storage will be removed. The update is quite massive, with a size of over 1,4 GB.
The list of Android 6.0 Marshmallow goodies mentioned above includes features like Google Now on Tap contextual search, granular app permissions, Doze mode for improved autonomy, as well as multiple minor tweaks and fixes. The latest security patch should be included as well, next to the Samsung TouchWiz UI-exclusive changes like the new web browser with ad-blocking support, new animations, app icons, and folder designs.
