Update for GS6 was completed this morning. I've been waiting a long time for this update, i'm not really sure why though, my GS6 has been great.

Anyone know the scheduled date for note 4 update?

Samsung has still not yet announced any official upgrades for the Note 4, especially in Canada. Until that happens (likely not for some time) you will need to wait. Samsung is one of the worst device manufacturers in terms of delays in releasing updates for their current flagship devices. They take even longer for older generations of devices (Note 4), if they even bother to update them.

Sprint released Note 4 Marshmallow update almost 4 weeks ago, so it can't be all Samsung.  It's Samsung Canada and Carrier delays.

Sprint is the only carrier on this side of the planet with the Note 4 update. The update was released to unlocked phones in India and Korea and Sprint. Only a tiny fraction of the planet has it. None of the other US carriers have it yet either and they'll typically get it before it comes to Canada.

Samsung in Canada is so bad they don't bother to update devices they still sell through cell providers. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is still available from Telus but has been left at version 5.0 plus no security updates. There phones ae not worthy of purchase better to buy a Nexus device for your own security.

What the heak is taking so long? Software updates have been moved back 3 times now. If there is a set date keep that date. You guys are worse than Microsoft. Release it already. The G6 date better not change. its been long enough Android N is out now. Marshmallow has been out for 6 months now and no way it should be taking this long.

@Kenv Don't forget N is just an alpha developer non-daily-driver version. And it's Nexus only. These guys do their best to get stuff done. If you wanted fast updates, you should have gotten a Nexus.

Hey Telus Admins/Mods,

 

Curious questions.  Not looking for a date, but will the Galaxy S5 ACTIVE get Marshmallow

and some point?

Samsung always updates the Active series devices last. They are not flagship phones. Plus the S5 Active is, by cell standards, an old phone. Unless Samsung has announced anything, the mobility providers won't be offering the update. So far Samsung has not announced anything yet.

The S5 Active has the same hardware as the GS5 there almost identical but is more capable if handling water, dust and other damage. The active was released after the GS5 it is newer than the GS5 my phone was manufactured in 2015.

So the S5 active is the only pile of garbage not getting the update? Can someone from Telus confirm this?

@Nighthawk Apparently you were wrong and should maybe keep your mouth shut and let the MODS actually answer questions you are not sure of.

I get you want to help, but please if you don't know, don't answer.  Your response was 100% incorrect as my Wife is now updated to Marshmallow on her S5 Active.

Again, let the mods do their job, that's who I asked.  Not you

@mhinc In which way was I incorrect? I said over two months ago, the Active series typically is the last to get the update, and at the time Samsung had not announced the update. The update to Marshmallow happened mere days ago where the other models had it some time ago.

I'm disappointed to see that the Note 4 update was delayed by a week... I hope it just means that you guys found a few bugs to get it right.
