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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
