Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ Android Lollipop update
The update comes in at 111.34 MB and brings battery optimizations and enhanced wireless charging features. Our AndroidPIT Brazil colleague noted that there wasn't much difference in the device's performance, in terms of fluidity and response, before and after the update, despite what the changelog claimed (which can be seen in Portuguese at the link).
As the S6 Edge+ already runs on the latest version of the Android OS, this update comes as something of a surprise.
