If you own a Galaxy Note Edge (unlocked) in Europe, the chances are that you will soon be notified about the much awaited Android M 6.0.1 update. According to Sam Mobile, the 1.4GB update will change your handset's firmware build number to N915FYXXU1DPE1, along with installing the SMR patches for May.

We also have good news for our readers in China because the Samsung Galaxy A9 just started receiving the upgrade to Marshmallow as well. The A9 is the first in Samsung's A-series to receive the update so far. After downloading and installing the file, you can check from settings to see the firmware version changed to A9000ZCU1BPE2 and the base Android version changed to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The Blackberry "Priv" may not have been a good name to be honest, but the manufacturer was certainly ahead of many greater and better names in the industry when it rolled out the Marshmallow update to the Priv before many. The latest update released is a humongous 1.8GB file that will upgrade the handset to Marshmallow beta. The STV100-1, STV100-3 and the STV100-4 models in the applicable geographical areas are eligible for the upgrade as of now.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy S5 G906S, your smartphone is about to receive an upgrade to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The update package should arrive on your smartphone via OTA soon and it is sure to bring in a number of improvements and changes along with it.

The LTE-A G906S is actually a more powerful version of the regular Samsung Galaxy S5, thanks to an extra gigabyte of RAM. The handset is powered by the old but still powerful, Snapdragon 805 SoC and it is exclusively available in South Korea only. It was launched in Samsung's own nation just a few months following the launch of the original Galaxy S5 in 2014.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A G901F was dubbed as the S5 Plus and was made available for purchase in several European countries, as well as in Singapore. In case you are wondering whether or not an Android Marshmallow update has been released for the 901F, check your smartphone right now because that update was rolled out over a week ago in both Europe and Singapore. Check out our firmware section for easy access to all the latest firmware updates right now.



If you are in Europe and you are still using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, we have good news for you today. It is only a matter of time before you are notified that the much awaited Marshmallow update has finally arrived on your Galaxy Note 4. The SD 805 powered N910F is among the last of the Note 4 variations to receive the major upgrade as Samsung looks to finish off its Marshmallow update schedule.

As expected, the update comes in a large OTA package of roughly 1.3 gigabytes. While all of the N910F models will be upgraded to Android version 6.0.1 post installation, the build number will vary depending on the particular country as well as the carrier. So far, news of the update's arrival has been reported mainly from the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Hungary. We expect similar reports from the other European countries to turn up soon.

The Note 4 will see significant improvements in speed and stability, along with a more up to date S-Pen interface. As was seen with similar updates for other versions, the screen off memo feature from the Note 5 will now be available on the Note 4 also. Expect Android M to arrive on the N910F with all its bells and whistles, like Dozing, customizable app permissions and a redesigned, lighter TouchWiz.

Google introduced the "Adoptable Storage" feature with Android Marshmallow back in May, 2015. However, there is still a bit of confusion regarding how the option works exactly. Let us try and clear the smoke here.

What is it?

The Adoptable Storage feature allows you to turn a micro-SD card into the internal storage of your phone. Once you do this, the memory card will well and truly be adopted as a non-removable part of the smartphone, after being reformatted as a 128-bit AES encrypted EXT4 drive. Imagine the 16GB internal storage of your smartphone which had previously kept your app installations at check, replaced with the 64GB memory of your SD card.

How to do it?

As soon as you enter your memory card into a device that is running Android M (Some devices do not support the feature), you should see the following prompt, "Set up SD card." Tap on it, select "Format as internal storage" and select "Erase & Format." Remember to read the warnings just as a precaution.

Can I switch back?

Yes, you can switch back to using your SD card as an external storage by reformatting the card in the same way as before, but this time as "Portable Storage." Do it from Settings >Storage >Select card >Format as external. Remember though that in doing so, all applications and files on that SD card will be lost.

Should you do it?

It depends on your needs really, but if you do choose to try it, make sure that the SD card is at least a Class 10 or UHS. There is a small possibility of your card failing and a rather large one of your phone becoming slower than before. Most cards were not built to handle the high rate of caching, reading and writing data that an internal storage drive must handle. Even though Google has taken measures to prevent this by reducing the indexing operations, the load will still be heavy. Therefore, the advice is, do it if you have low in-built memory, but if you already have sufficient space on the internal storage, it might not be a bad idea to avoid it for now.

Users that chose AT&T as their carrier while buying the HTC One M8 and HTC One M9 were left a little disappointed in the fact that they had not yet received the Android M update on their smartphones. Given that Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint had already released the update for their respective versions of the two phones, the disappointment is understandable. However, this was expected as HTC had earlier made it public that Marshmallow will reach the M8 and the M9 on AT&T, later than their counterparts on other carriers.

Nonetheless, we have good news for you because Mo Versi (VP of Product Management, HTC) just confirmed on Twitter that both the smartphones will begin receiving the much awaited upgrade, starting today. Although the OTA update package won't reach every phone at the same instance, it is only a matter of time before it does reach all the HTC One M8 and One M9 handsets that are on AT&T. If you are impatient, check right now to see if the update has arrived on your smartphone yet by going to Settings >About device > Check for updates.
