Verizon’s Galaxy Note 5 is Getting Its Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Update

galaxy note 5

Would you look at that – Verizon’s variant of the Galaxy Note 5 is the first from Samsung to get Marshmallow here in the US. Not only that, but it’s also getting updated to Android 6.0.1, build MMB29K, the newest version of Android.

The update is scheduled to begin rollout on March 4 as software version VRU2BPB2, so if you aren’t able to pull it this evening, try not to stress. To check, head into Settings>About Device>Software updates>Check for Updates.

According to Verizon’s changelog, the update includes support for Google Now on Tap, Doze, WiFi Calling, Live Broadcast improvements, and a bunch of UI tweaks (like new icons) to bring the software in line with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The full list of changes can be viewed at the source link below.

How exciting. Let us know if you see that update! And let’s hope this one rolls out faster than the Turbo 2’s update.

    wifi still unstable and aps are not updating even with the patch 6.0.1😡😭

  • David Adams

    6.01 on note 5 is still very buggy. Phone dies at 10%. The highlight and translate feature doesn’t work in whatsapp as advertised. And when you restart the phone you have to put your pattern in about three time . Its almost like the phone repeatedly restarts itself. I also dont see much of a difference in battery life with doze

  • Hey Man!

    Got it today. Do not care for the change in folder colors on home screen. Cant open “Themes” in settings, or the Samsung + app.

  • dpu328

    Day after upgrade getting random reboots even after factory reset. Grr

  • Chris Wuest

    I noticed after the update, the lockscreen “Water Ripple” type effects are gone. Not a big deal, but I kind of liked them…. Just saying….lolz

  • Jennifer Walter

    I downloaded the update yesterday, now my GPS is constantly saying “GPS signal lost.” Happens on routes traveled with no issues before, would say it about every 5 minutes. Getting voice-mail error messages too.

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    I got the update today, besides increased fingerprint protection and a different camera ui, I don’t notice much.

  • Josh Meade

    In MARCH? MARCH? I’ve had marshmallow for 9 months now!

  • BostonBoy37

    I haven’t noticed any battery issues. Calls are clear. Apps work fine. I do have one issue though and hoping someone found a solution to this because I can’t seem to find anything…

    When I’m connected to wifi it works fine for a minute or so but then I can’t seem to get to anything for the next few minutes. I have disabled smartwatch (the thing that uses mobile data or wifi depending on which is better), cleared cache, rebooted 12 times, rebooted the router. Anyone else run into this error?

    Battery life has increased and it is more snappier than it already was. I like it .

    Need S6 MM update. Please/Thanks Verizon.

    -Everybody

  • prisoner223

    Anyone else seeing a dramatic increase in battery life? It’s crazy how much it’s improved for me. Completely night and day. The phone is going to start lasting a full day again..

    • Chris Pugh

      I wish I had a answer for you. I have the Verizon S6 Edge Plus and still waiting on marshmallow to come. Battery life is so bad that I actually bought the zerolemon 8500MAH extended battery and case because of it and I’m not a heavy user at all.
      Damn you Verizon for not bringing MM
      To S6 Edge Plus first.

  • Jason Pritchett

    Do T-mobile customers get the update eventually?

  • DRAZY

    I got the update this morning! Loving it so far!

  • Downloading now. Mmhahaha…. :]

  • ratheyn

    Just got it. Went to System Updates. I live in MD.

  • LBJ

    Hopefully the T-Mobile Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge + and Note 5 devices get it very soon.

  • TC Infantino

    You just Had to mention the Turbo 2 debacle.

  • ck125

    But i thought verizon never updates their devices? Or so the haters say. Verizon actually first on this one. Surprising.

  • LLcdPH

    I checked and got my update around noon central. Once the package was downloaded, the upgrade took somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes to install.

  • Dominick White

    Updating the wife’s note 5 right now

  • Michael Majere

    MMB29Q is actually the latest, 29K was replaced a good while ago

  • cocamoxb

    Not trolling, but I’ve got it and can’t tell the difference, honestly.

    I can set app permissions. That’s about it.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am 100% happy with the phone. I don’t need SD or replaceable battery.

    • cocamoxb

      I’ve noticed that now there is a permanent “Touch and hold to add items” printed on the home screen.

      I don’t have icons anywhere except the bottom bar in folders.

      Kind of annoying.

      • BleedingPurist

        It will disappear once you actually add a widget. You can delete the widget immediately after.

  • mcapehart

    Just got mine. Downloading as I type. FINALLY!!!

  • burtinboy

  • Ajmobileguru

    Still no love for Verizon Note 4 🙁

    • bassman418

      I thought I saw a posted chart stating April for the Note 4. I have my old Note 4 in my desk waiting. Lol

  • Fitnesspro

    Really? I’ve had Marshmallow for over six months now on all my NEXUS devices 5, 7 and 6P.

    • Logic says…

      That’s pretty impressive, you should be proud that your Nexus devices do exactly what they were intended to do.

  • mydroidphone

    upgrading my note 5 now and it keeps on looping…. optimizing app 11 of 57 and then turns off/on….optimizing app 11 of 57 and then turns off/on….optimizing app 11 of 57 and then turns off/on….optimizing app 11 of 57 and then turns off/on….

  • BleedingPurist

    Downloaded it this morning. Where the hell is the new Emoji??

  • trevorsalienarms

    Installed, seems fine. Will be interesting to see if/how much impact Doze has on the battery life. Not that I have had any complaints thus far.
