Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Receives Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update at Verizon
One of the first carriers in the US to offer the upgrade
Samsung has yet to provide Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to most of its high-end smartphones. In fact, the South Korean company did not even announce which devices will receive the Marshmallow upgrade.
Luckily, many Samsung documents leaked in the last couple of months contain the names of the phones and tablets that might receive the update this year.
The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5, along with their variations, are among the first smartphones to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
We reported a few weeks ago that Samsung kicked off the rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in South Korea. In the meantime, the update arrived in Europe, but many Galaxy S6/S6 edge users have yet to receive the update.
Today, US major carrier Verizon Wireless announced that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now available for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 owners.

As the Big Red points out, this is “the first Galaxy device at Verizon to receive Android's latest Marshmallow OS update.”
Wi-Fi Calling added, Amazon Appstore removed
Among the most significant new features and improvements included in the update, Verizon mentions “Now on Tap,” which provides users with cards that contain useful information and apps.
Also, the highly praised Doze mode that puts the smartphone into a sleep slate, thus preserving the phone's battery even more. Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users will be able to choose to give specific permissions to any application installed on their smartphones.
Wi-Fi calling will be available as well, but you will have to activate HD Voice directly on the device by heading to Settings / Advanced Calling / Activate Advanced Calling.
With the addition of Material Design, many visual changes will be implemented as well. Keep in mind that the Amazon Appstore application has been removed in Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
According to Verizon, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be pushed in waves, which means that it might not be available for all devices at the same time.
