After a long wait, T-mobile subscribers of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in the US are finally receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Other carriers in the US like Verizon, AT&T and Sprint seeded the Marshmallow update to the device in March itself making T-mobile the last carrier to seed the update in the US.

Along with the usual Marshmallow features like doze mode, app permissions, custom Google tabs etc this update will also bring a new Samsung browser with ad-blocking support. Users of Galaxy Note 5, who have already upgraded their phones to Marshmallow, have reported a slight speed boost in their phones as well. The update also brings along the Android security patch for April 2016.

Additionally, the update will get rid of any pre-loaded app on the system that is not compatible with the Marshmallow. If you want a version of those apps after the update is complete you can visit the Google Play Store and download them again.

The update is an over-the-air one and weighs close to 1,420MB in size so make sure you have the much required space and only download it over Wi-Fi to avoid an exorbitant data bill. If you have not got any notification for an update you can check for the update manually by going to Settings, About device, Software update.
