ZTE Axon Pro Android smartphone gets the Marshmallow update
ZTE Axon Pro
This handset that arrived on the market back in July 2015 now gets updated to Android 6.0 and thus gains features like Doze mode and Now on Tap.

While most carriers and OEMs updated their devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop in a timely manner, there are many owners of recently launched handsets that have been waiting for months to get the Android 6.0 update and might have to wait at least a few more weeks before they get it. Fortunately for owners of the ZTE Axon Pro, this device got its Marshmallow update earlier today.

According to ZTE, this update fulfills the "promise to our customers [to] support and provide ongoing Android updates to our flagship device." This flagship handset has been launched back in July 2015. Back then, ZTE promised to offer support and updates as needed. 

In addition to the usual fixes and tweaks, the highlights of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for ZTE Axon Pro include the following:

  • Doze mode for increased battery life
  • New app drawer for finding apps easier and faster than before
  • Now on Tap  to get the information needed with a press of a button

This firmware update has roughly 835 MB in size and requires a solid WiFi connection and a fully loaded battery to download and complete in a timely manner without eating up one's data plan. As usual, those who did not get the automatic notification yet can check for the update via Settings>About phone>System updates>System updates>Update Now.

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.
