Sprint subscribers who own a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 should get ready to step into the magic land of Android 6.0 Marshmallow very soon.
The changelog details the content of the update, and those who never used Marshmallow are in for a big treat.
Android Central reports that the update's size is of 1362.41 MB.
Not only will the phablet get the latest Android OS, but a novel version of TouchWiz is also in store, bringing enhanced usability and sleek visual design. A quick connect option is enabled, making sure your device quickly recognizes previous connectivity options. Looking at safety options, the latest Android operating system brings increased security filters.
Via the Doze function, the phone can now extend its battery life by restricting background data traffic. A new vibration pattern concept is also in the mix.
Google recommends that you update your apps after installing Marshmallow. With this in mind, access the Galaxy Apps or Play Store right after your OS upgrade to get all your apps to top speed.
It should be mentioned that Android 6.0 Marshmallow offers no support for the Decrypt device function. This means that, should your mobile device be encrypted, you cannot disable the option after upgrading the OS.
Your Sprint Galaxy Note 5 should receive the notification about the upgrade any day now, but if you're curious, simply check for it manually. To do so, just go to Settings > About Phone > Software updates > Check for Update.
If the Marshmallow treat is available, you will be able to grab the update by tapping the Download now button.
Reports indicated that other carriers, such as AT&T, are preparing to upgrade the OS of the Galaxy Note 5 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Verizon already updated the OS for its Note 5 customers, ahead of rivals such as T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon.
Android 6.0 landed in other markets, as well: Galaxy Note 5 owners from India recently started to receive the update.
Some users point out that the Android Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 packs a few hiccups, however. Dismayed customers report facing issues with Wi-Fi and battery drain.
Samsung is expected to solve the problems in the second version of the OS. However, no official release date is available yet.
