Android Marshmallow for Galaxy smartphones

All does not seem well for the Android Marshmallow update seeded to Galaxy Note 5 users in Cambodia. Users of the latest Android version are reporting major battery drain issues along with VR headsets connectivity problems.

SamMobile, which reported the rollout of the over-the-air (OTA) update to users in Cambodia, now says users of the Note 5 who updated their phones to Marshmallow have not had a smooth ride. The most reported issue seemed to be battery drain which was found on many other Android phones prior to this including the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge which were the first Galaxy devices to get the OTA update.

Some other users have complained of not being able to connect their VR sets to their Note 5s after completing the update. A few other users, however, say that this may be a build problem for those who have not got the update automatically but downloaded the firmware to update their OS.

At this point it is not clear if these issues are limited to the Cambodia rollout as no other regions have so far got the update for the Note 5. A few AT&T Galaxy Note 5 owners in the US were able to access the Marshmallow in the first week of February in a beta testing phase but did not report any such issues. This means the company may be working to fix this issue before it rolls out the update to more regions.

Samsung announced that it would start seeding the Marshmallow update to all compatible Galaxy devices but did not provide a time frame.
