Sprint releases Marshmallow upgrade for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note 5

A good news for the customers using the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note 5 on Sprint just came in. Apparently the carrier has started to roll out the Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow upgrade for both of the smartphones.

The update sizes to about 1.4 GB so we recommend a WiFi connection for the purpose of downloading. Sprint will be sending out OTA notifications to the aforementioned devices which will guide its customers through the upgrade process automatically. Alternatively, for a bit eager customers, the manual upgrade option is always available. All you need to do is find the Settings app and open About Device -> Software Update -> Update now.

Although the update came considerably late, it is still a treat to get the update for both smartphones simultaneously. As you guys already know, Android Marshmallow was released last year with numerous new features as compared to 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.
