Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android Marshmallow update

We've received a first look at Marshmallow on the Note 5 thanks to an early build which rolled out to a small number of devices. Though this is not the final version of the software, it gives us a good indication of what it will be like and our first impressions have been positive – read more at the link above.

Two Marshmallow timetables showing Samsung's plans for the rollout leaked earlier this year. The most recent places the Note 5 at the top of the list, with an expected rollout window of Q1 2016. You can see the schedule on our Marshmallow: update overview page. Given the soak test that has been going on for a while now, it seems likely that the Note 5 will receive Marshmallow very early in 2016.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android Lollipop update

T-Mobile recently rolled out an update that secured the Note 5 against the Stagefright vulnerability, but did not upgrade the device beyond Android 5.1.1. We tested the Note 5 after applying the upgrade, and can confirm that it is now fully protected against Stagefright. 

Meanwhile, Verizon pushed out a small security update to the Note 5 on September 25, but Sprint and AT&T are yet to catch up.

    Ever since the verizon recent security update that I got about a week ago my note 5 is constantly getting a "process android.process.acore has stopped" error. Anyone getting the same? Is there any work arounds? Reboot doesn't correct the problem nor clearing the cache in application manager. Any suggestions?

    • Try factory resetting the device. If that doesn't work then try a hard reset with the volume, home and power buttons.

  • The Galaxy Note 5 and S6Edge+ are the best phablets on the market Worldwide period the GOLD STANDARD. Everything else is definitely obsolete and inferior.

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5 doesn't have the huge impact to the many users. It is like the features and functions are just an upgrade of the other previous units.
