    What is it about Marshmallow that you are dying to have? What features are you missing out on with Lollipop?
    ... actually there are many. Top of my list would be the option of setting the SD card up as internal storage.

    I like to have the latest updates and the roll out takes too long.
    You sure picked the wrong phone. Verizon only phones are notorious for slow updates. If timely updates are your thing, you for sure should be on a Nexus phone.

    There shouldn't be a person on this forum that doesn't know that it takes Verizon a long time. You knew that when you bought any verizon phone. It's like buying a Ford f-150 and being bothered that it doesn't get 40 miles per gallon, and being surprised about it

    I'm begging Verizon not to send out the update because then I would lose the fun of checking my phone about every 20 minutes for the update.

    I hope this is not as 'buggy' as it was on an older phone I have that was rooted when we do get MM.

    What is the problem with Verizon? Do they have 2 people working in IT and one of them is on vacation? Come on Verizon, start acting like a big boy carrier.

    Verizon's Galaxy S6 has WiFi calling, but not Marshmallow.

    Sadly, "lawyerherald" seems to publish a large number of articles on the topic, and gets sucked into Google search results, Google Now results, and Google News listings when you search for "Droid Turbo 2" and "Droid Turbo 2 Marshmallow". I say, "sadly", because there's almost NEVER any new content there. It's almost always a lukewarm rehash of old news, as in, "Droid Turbo 2 Owners STILL don't know when they're getting Marshmallow". The total lack of true information makes it appear that somebody is simply trolling for page views by putting "hot topics" on their home page, even if they have nothing to say on the topics. Truly, truly, maddening that these useless sites exist, and diminish the value of web searches for real content. That's one site that I'd LOVE to see Google downgrade or eliminate from search results.

    Hmmm. Galaxy S7 and LG G5 will not allow using the MicroSD card for internal storage with Marshmallow. Verizon might follow with the Droid. There is the potential for a screwup and a slowdown when everything is on a MicroSD card. They probably fail a lot more frequently than internal storage.

    Any chance marshmallow provides better screen on battery life. For a device with such a big battery, the SOT is complete trash. A fraction of the Droid Maxx and original Turbo.

    The similar Moto X Force has adoptable storage on Marshmallow.

    Here is a Moto page about the feature: https://motorola-global-portal.custh...34/p/1449,9582

    I suppose it's possible that Verizon will tell Moto to make a special version without the feature, but I seriously doubt it.

    I agree with you that it's risky compared with using the card for media and app data storage though. I wouldn't use adoptable storage without an incredibly robust backup method and the understanding I may be doing an fdr and restore of data if the card fails.

    What's your average daily? Do you you have GSAM?

    I do. I'm getting about 5 hours SOT per day. While better than most phones, it's a big step down from the Maxx and original Turbo.

    Agreed. I get 5-6 hours as well, but that's running the battery to zero. I keep everything on except for Bluetooth and my screen at half auto brightness. Normally I'd be fine with that performance, but a 3700mAh battery really should be doing better than that. 6-7 hours would be great.

    It's possible that SOT will be improved in MM. It does feature software optimizations in addition to doze. I'm hoping that it'll solve the cell standby drain I have on my phone.

    Still, the fact that it hasn't rolled out is infuriating. Since Verizon leaked the support page it's obviously ready, they're just dragging their feet now.

    Some 2 months ago I was trashed by lots of people here when I suggested that this was reminiscent of the Droid Turbo fiasco.
    I guess I was right..

    So your GSAM on the Maxx/Turbo would've read 6-7 hours on average SOT? I spend hours a day on the phone so my SOT is not as high, but overall I end up with more battery life at the end of the day with this phone than I topically did with the T1. The Maxx was a little better, but not drastically.

    At this point I think part of it is just perception based on differences in the way the battery stats are interpreted by each device. On the original Maxx, the first 50% would seem endless but once below 50%, it would discharge much faster. This could lead to the perception early on in a given day that it would last much longer than it actually will. And with the T1, a bit of the same, once it got to 30% or so, I noticed a much faster decline. On the T2 it seems to discharge more consistently all the way down to zero, and in particular the last 30% really seems to hold. This will lead to the perception at an earlier point in the day that you're set up to run out sooner than you would've with the Maxx/T1, but in reality when you look at the averages, I find that it's actually very comparable, and better than the T1 by a little bit.

    In other words, I think a lot of us here are really subjectively comparing this phone to two completely separate phones, and disparaging the SOT (As in calling it complete trash) capabilities for 5 hours average is kind of ridiculous. I'm not sure what a lot of these other phones with 2800MAH or 3000MAH batteries get, but how many extra hours does an additional 800-1000MAH capacity really buy you? All I know is that all my friends and cohorts continue to run to their chargers half way through the day and I've never done so once with this phone no matter what I throw at it.

    This is an excellent point, and one I hadn't really considered. Since I typically charge my phone at 40 or 50%, I'm not getting the full read. If the Maxx would hold a charge better from 100% to 50% and then discharge faster from there (and vice versa for the T2), that would negatively influence my perception of the T2's battery life (and enhance my perception of the Maxx's), when in reality the 100 to 0 might be much more similar between the two phones.

    Again, fantastic point.

    I'm not the one complaining that my Turbo 2 doesn't get as good battery life as the OG Turbo, that's 1901Madison above me. I've never owned an OG Turbo.

    Glad to see that I'm not the only one experiencing that kind of battery drainage pattern. The last 30% really does seem to drain slower than the first 70%. I totally agree with the point you made about how that'd affect the perception of battery life.

    However, let's not turn this into another battery life forum. This thread's about Marshmallow. Still no sign of the update

    Good point, I'll refrain from switching the subject in the future. It just seemed relevant to a few of the more recent posts about battery life related to the marshmallow update. But my last one was obviously not on the original topic at all. Apologies!
