It got changed again, it's now the 18th. Chatted with Telus customer service and they said they have no control over the update schedule. I understand that in the end it's Samsung but the Telus guy I talked to was a jerk. He wouldn't address my LTE issue, and he actually suggested that I go and buy a Nexus if I wanted the update.

@Newfiechick19 - I'm currently downloading the Marshmallow update on my S6 Edge.

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.

Any issues? I updated my GS6 Edge this morning and when someone sends me more than 1 text message in a row the second and subsequent texts are in a blue bubble with white text that is impossible to read. The original text is fine.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What about the S5 Active? I see GS5 is getting an update but I've not had anything show up on my S5 Active.

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?

Do you have the Android M schedule for the month of June yet?

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.

I wonder why the idol3 was taken off the list.

So do I, considering that the update is rolling out to carrier unlocked devices in the US now. Seems a bit strange. We haven't even had a security update since January.
