    AT&T has never really been fast about updates. I would be surprised if the Note 4 got MM from AT&T.

    I understand slow... But this is ridiculous. This is the one thing Apple has over Android. Updates.

    I know this is sort of comparing apples to oranges, but they sure seem to be on the ball with pushing out security updates. They did decent with other handheld devices getting marshmallow. But they've completely spaced the Note 4. I was chatting with an AT&T employee this morning in fact to see what info I could get, and she told me she needed my IMEI number, so at that point I knew I was going to get a canned nonsense response so I just quit the chat.

    They have no idea what they're doing over there. All I can say is when they do push it, it better not have a single freaking bug. If they took this long and still didn't squash all the bugs, they're absolutely incompetent. And if they need to roll it out en masse to see what bugs are there, do it already!

    Depends how you look at it. Android can be used by various manufactures (like Samsung) where the carriers can modify the software and therefore delay the updates. If you were to compare a true Apple phone to a true Android phone (Nexus) it is the same then. Google pushes the updates directly to the Nexus -- no waiting on the carrier.

    At this point, I don't think AT&T will be rolling out MM to us until *at least* the Note 7 gets announced, which is in a couple of weeks. That probably increases the chances that people will upgrade to the Note 7.

    If we get it, I'd bet on mid-August at the earliest once a bunch of people have placed their preorders - and after the Note 7 starts shipping as a more probable date.

    Or... they have made the determination that Android M will degrade our Note 4 experiences... would be nice if they'd confirm one way or another though #smdh

    Isn't the Note 7 coming Aug 2? So your think Note 4 might get MM mid Aug?

    I suspect that is the *earliest* date the AT&T Note 4 will see Marshmallow. Many who bought the Note 4 at launch (October 2014) are approaching the end of their two-year contracts and will probably be jumping ship anyway, so they'll have fewer phones to screw up if they wait until many of those folks have moved on to their new shiny phones.

    I just can't see them launching MM for the Note 4 this close to launching the Note 7. I'd love to be proven wrong.

    I'm one of them. I got my Note 4 on launch day and fully intend to upgrade to the Note 7. But I won't be doing it with AT&T. Not only because of the updates, but that is part of it. I feel that you're 100% right and I do not respect a company who will make that type of judgement call. Marshmallow should NOT have even been a factor at this time. We should have had it at least two months ago if AT&T was being even remotely competitive with other carriers.

    And i'm not one of those who says that if I don't get the update immediately, i'm leaving. I'm fine waiting for updates so they can work out the bugs. Especially if my Note is functioning great (mine isn't). The problem I have is that I feel like AT&T and Verizon don't care one bit about the consumer in so many different ways unrelated to updates. That's fine, I will go somewhere else. I'd take slightly worse service (negligible difference at this point) for a company who is at least trying to make up market share. It seems like the companies who are dominant like Verizon and AT&T become complacent.

    After 9 months of a barely usable 5.0.1 I think Samsung and AT&T owe us a solid version of marshmallow. That said, this is exactly why I will never buy another Samsung phone. I'll either go Nexus, One+, Moto, or Apple for my next phone.

    There is a solid version of MM on the Note 4 ... you can thank ATT for not having one.

    And then you'll be on the forums saying: "I feel like One+ owes us a solid version of the update. Which is exactly why I will never buy another One+ phone again. I'll go with Nexus, Moto, or Apple."

    And then a few months later: "I feel like Moto owes us a solid version of the update. Which is exactly why I will never buy another Moto phone again. I'll go with Apple or Nexus."

    And then: "I feel like Apple owes us a solid version of the update. Which is exactly why I will never buy another Apple phone again. I'll go with Nexus."


    The point is, in my 6 or 7 years of owning LG, Moto, Samsung, and Nexus I've seen someone in every single one of those threads say exactly what you're saying. My best friend had an iPhone 5 through his work a few years ago, and Apple released the update and his phone downloaded it one night, and it bricked his phone. Googling it brought up dozens of stories of that happening, and when he called the wonderful Apple customer service, they told him it's considered a "user modification" and would not be replaced under warranty. So even Apple has had problems.

    I have heard that One+ is looking not so good on their commitment to updates. Moto was pretty good with my Moto G 1st gen; I don't know if they are any better or worse now. Google is good with their Nexus updates, they promise 2 years of updates. Meanwhile, Samsung and AT&T will be happy to sell you a new $700+ phone in a year if you want the new OS. Then there's Apple who is going to roll out iOS 10 to 4 year old phones.

    I haven't had the phone for two years and I can't get Marshmallow a year after it's release!?! They've abandoned me before I'm dong paying for it. I do appreciate that I've been getting the monthly security updates lately, but I want the new OS. Basically, Samsung and AT&T don't care about you once you are out the door.

    Long term support from Apple just crushes the Android manufacturers. They're not perfect, but I've never had problems with iPads, or iPhones, or Macs.

    Poor ATTKevinCS has the patience of a saint to keep being polite to some (to varying levels understandably) upset folks while having precious little information to give out. They need to pay that dude more.
