Samsung and Google are continuously working on delivering the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a range of devices. For those who are waiting for the rollout, T-Mobile has started releasing the firmware while Google Nexus 4 users are in for a treat.


Samsung Galaxy S5 Android 6.0 Update

It has been several months now since Google released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. However, not all OEMs and models are still updated for a variety of reasons. Samsung and mobile carriers are working on that.

According to new reports, T-Mobile is now bringing the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its Samsung Galaxy S5 units. The update is available via over-the-air or OTA release. It has started rolling out since May 23 but it may take some time before all units are reached.

According to Phone Arena, the update is quite sizeable at around 1GB. It offers the known Marshmallow treats like Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, app permissions and others, but more importantly, it offers a “device slowness fix.” Users are also in for some May Android security patch.

As with other Android updates, it is best to connect the mobile device to a secured and reliable WiFi and internet connection. Users are also advised to charge their batteries fully first. 

Google Nexus 4 Android 6.0 Update

When it comes to the Google Nexus 4, it is a device that is quite way down the timeline. However, thanks to a custom ROM from Dmitry Grinberg, Nexus 4 users can actually update their devices to Android 6.0, as reported by Auto Mobile. However, it is best for users to know first how to flash their devices and use custom ROM before proceeding. Backing up all data is also necessary.
