Samsung Galaxy S5 (not long after Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge), has started to receive the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new version of the operating system of the green robot has arrived in the homeland of the manufacturer with the world record on the smartphone market: South Korea. The Koreans are already getting all the notification over the air, so we can deduce that it will not take long for you to get the update and also other parts of the world.
Among the main new features that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will bring to Samsung Galaxy S5 will be the famous Doze mode for advanced battery usage. It will then present a new granular permissions system for apps, allowing you to choose each and allowed to decide things about it. And there will also an important change: Google Now on Tap, a contextual search service effected on the basis of what is displayed on the smartphone’s display at a given time.
Truly, Samsung Galaxy S5 has not only received the standard version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but it is updated directly to Android 6.0.1. This means that the smartphone will also benefit from performance improvements, and specifically on the stability and speed. And there will also include the bug fixes from the previous version of the operating system.
Thus, with Marshmallow and Doze, the system optimizes the consumption of the battery when the terminal goes to sleep; but we also find Direct Share, sharing our content with our most frequent contacts directly from a contextual menu without entering the app, or as “Do Not Disturb” which disables all notifications during the time that we establish (or until the next alarm, a novelty from 6.0.1).
However, we will not see changes for the SD card and internal storage, because Samsung has not supported it in previous terminals of the Galaxy S7. For our part, we are left with the news that finally the Samsung Galaxy S5 is updated to Android Marshmallow and therefore this version is having (a slow) distribution.
