After initially being released with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, Samsung's 2015 flagship phablet finally received the long coveted Android Marshmallow update in early 2016. Roughly around the same time, it received the new Grace UX interface, after which several users complained about the device slowing down. In November 2016, Samsung rolled out the Note 7's Grace UX to the Galaxy Note 5, giving it a much needed breath of life. Now news have reached us that the Android 7.0 Nougat update is rolling out to T-Mobile users.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android Marshmallow Update
While the Galaxy Note 5 came with Lollipop, it was then updated to Marshmallow. It still hasn't received Nougat yet, but it has just been given a much-anticipated new update in South Korea. Korea Telecom has brought us a new Marshmallow update that, in addition to fixing bugs and improving stability, comes skinned with the Grace UX, which we first saw on the Galaxy Note 7. Grace UX is based on Android 6.0.1, and looks cleaner than old versions of TouchWiz.
