    Mine is still indicating it is up to date on 5.1.1

    Also: tried kies and smart switch, and both said it was up to date.

    I had been waiting with bated breath for this update to arrive, mainly because of the expected addition of the "Until next alarm" setting to the "Do not disturb" feature, but woe to me, no such luck! "Do not disturb" hasn't changed at all from Lollipop, and there is no "Until next alarm" option to be seen anywhere. What's going on, T-Mobile and Samsung? I have a really hard time using my alarm clock without this feature. Every once in a while, I forget to disable "Do not disturb" after I get up and then walk around half a day incommunicado, wondering why no one calls me. This is ridiculous! Doesn't T-Mobile realize how freakin' important this feature is to people?

    Does anyone know anything about this issue?

    I liked the old do not disturb method when it was called something else

    Well, an update: Kies, SmartSwitch, and the OTA updater all said "Up to date" on 5.1.1.

    Did the Firmware Recovery/update in KIES: it loaded 6.0.1 and the July 2016 security update. So: it's now up to date. And on a factory clean image, too.

    <shrug> Software lies, apparently.

    Upgraded to Marshmallow yesterday. I'm noticing my battery is back to draining quickly. I've cleared the cache and force quit everything I don't use. Still, I can watch my battery go down.

    Lollipop used to have "AirWakeUp," that let you wake your phone by waving your hand across the screen. I never used that, and found it to be a battery hog so I force quit it, and tried to disable it but it never worked. Every so often, I'd notice my battery draining quickly, check, and sure enough. AirWakeUp was enabled again and running.

    I'd force quit it, and my battery life would return to normal. Meaning I'd take it off the charger anywhere between 7am and 8am, and it would last all day with moderate usage: 2-3 hours listening to music over Spotify, 2 hours or so of SOT, a few phone calls and text messages/Facebook messages. It would not need to be charged until bedtime between 10pm and 11pm.

    Does anyone know if they have renamed AirWakeUp and if so, what is it??? I'm convinced that is what is causing my drain. I work tomorrow and I won't leave the house without my portable charger, just in case.

    Also....has anyone noticed that you can't seem to force quit an app? Once you back out of settings, the app starts right back up again? There are several I don't use like Gear, Google+, the umpteen Google Plays. Books, Movies, etc. I force quit everything I don't use to salvage battery life, but how can I do that if the apps start running again? Some of them are running even after being disabled.

    I'm not so sure Marshmallow is good for battery life. I'm almost certain that this is contributing to the quick drain. I did go in and turn off LTE, like another poster suggested in another thread, so hopefully that will help some. In Lollipop, Note 4 had a little thing called AirWakeUp that let you wake your phone by waving your hand over the screen. I don't use it, it drained my battery FAST, so I went in and force quit it (and disabled it) several times. In Marshmallow, that is gone. Yet my battery is still draining quickly as if it were on.

    I'm still on a quest for battery solutions....

    Unfortunately in the android world we currently live in, you need to do a factory reset after an operating system upgrade if you want it to work right. I know its irritating to hear and everybody says it, but if you want your upgrade to work right it needs to be done. I hated doing it as well but my phone went from unusable to pretty decent for 6 after the reset.
    And the doze feature in android 6 is amazing when its working right....it will stretch your battery life out a huge amount when its working properly
