    Two in our house are now updated successfully. No issues so far but will give it a day or two to "settle in".

    Update to Marshmallow went very smoothly. My Note 4 seems a little laggy right now, but that's to be expected right after flashing an update. I'm a little disappointed that more things look the same as Lollipop than I expected - the Samsung email app is exactly the same, the settings bar when you swipe down from the top of the phone is the same (thought it would be white and blue like the S6 has), etc. Camera seems a little sluggish too, but I'll let the phone settle down for a few days to see if it improves.

    The differences I notice right away is the S-Pen. It now looks just like the Note 5 as the screen blurs as you detach the pen and it now has a customizable option. Holding the home button down for Google Now is a bit different too with add'l functionality.
    Another nice option I found is that we can now activate the Screen Off S-Pen writing option like the Note 5 has.- to activate this functionality, just go to Settings > S-Pen section > and check the box for Screen Off Memo. I had to reboot my Note 4 for this to start working, but it's great!

    Anyone have a persistent sdcard notification after the update? I can't get rid of it.

    I did at first, but I clicked on the notification a few times and it went away

    anyone doing a factory reset after the install? I typically do especially when it is a major version change.

    I just opened PowerAmp music player and all my Playlists are empty and it was only seeing music on the internal drive (99% of my music is on my 128gb SD card). I had to go to settings to check my music folder on my sd card to have it rescanned, but my Playlists are still empty and will take me a LONG time to redo. That's one bad after effect of the update!

    On another separate music note, in device Settings you can now activate UHQ upscaler under Sounds & Notifications and then 'Sound quality and effects'. Not sure if it can be used by any other music apps besides the Samsung music player, but in the Samsung player it puts a little UHQ logo next to songs that are FLAC quality (didn't notice a huge difference with my V-Moda headphones, but there was a difference)...

    Got the update here in Minnesota*.

    Some of the icons are more round, I guess that's pretty cool. Don't notice much else different.

    * Not that geography matter, but it's fun to play along.

    It says I can download and install over WI-FI. My Note 4 is not my current activated phone. Will it still download and install?

    Mine just completed the update....the icons look slightly different, but everything is setup just as I had it before (all of my Nova Launcher Pro settings, Verizon's Text Messenger app....all good)..... I didn't do any prep or anything....just downloaded the update and let it happen.

    Everything appears solid and quick.

    I haven't even looked into Marshmallow. What is supposed to be new and improved? That is, what USEFUL things have changed?

    I checked and it's available but I always put off any updates for a few weeks to make sure there are no major issues others are having. My phone is working fine on 5.1.1. I would be interested in knowing if the doze feature actually increases battery life.

    Updated mine earlier today. Had to do a couple restarts to get everything working together but now it's great. Like the SPen note taking from "off" by removing Spen and writing on screen. New SPen actions are nice also. SPen really is the center of the Note 4. Still need to try WiFi calling.

    Unfortunately, my S-pen air command stopped working after I updated. My detachment option is set to air command but nothing happens when I remove the S pen from my phone. I also noticed my options are all grayed out under Settings> S pen> Air command. I've tried a battery pull & restarting several times but no change. Prior to the update, my S-pen worked flawlessly. I guess I should've waited a bit before updating 🙁

    I read somewhere that you can change the settings screen to night mode. Is it true? If so, how?

    Thanks

    This update has been flawless for me! Battery life is improved. The UI is much snappier all around. Love the new options for the S-Pen. And...*drum roll* no more skipping Bluetooth!! This is a huge improvement to me. I use BT every day.
    Still can't get over that VZW wasn't the last to update to MM.

    Try a factory reset. My battery is much better after the update and a factory reset.

    I'd like to know this too. Not downloading so far. I assume a side load is required...
