Marshmallow features many change from its predecessor. Some of the major changes are described ahead. Firstly, Doze – this feature simply puts the smartphone into a ‘deeper sleep’ when it hasn’t been used for a prolonged period of time. As a result, the battery life of the smartphone is drastically increased. Moving on the next big change: Now on Tap – Marshmallow can predict your needs by a simple long press on the home button that provides quick access to learn more about the hang out spot or how to get there. You can use this feature to search for restaurants and even the type of food it serves. Last but not the least, the all new app drawer – as suggested by the heading, Marshmallow comes with a completely redesigned app drawer. Main improvements include the app search mechanism. You can scroll around with alphabet scrolling and can pin you favorite apps on the top to gain easy and fast access.
