    I wanted to know how many people want the next android update. For me I don't know if I want it. There isn't anything I've heard that's really exciting to me and in my past experiences the updates generally only cause problems. The phone works great now and I don't want it to get messed up.

    If it brings better notification handling, I'd be on board. Not sure if you can turn the (insert plethora of insults here) heads up notifications off in Marshmallow though, but I hope they do.

    Either way, it's coming. T-Mobile confirmed that their Note 5 is getting it, so that means Samsung has to release it first to them.

    Nope, I'm good. Kit kat update murdered my Note 3, I didn't think I was still bitter about it, but turns out I am...

    Nope. I have seldom had any phone that works as well after an update. Builders have much longer time to check out everything in original configuration. You change it for the newest thing with some new gimmick and some original features are borked....or sometimes everything is.

    I can't wait for it for one feature.. Native support for fingerprint scanners. I'm hoping app developers will implement it like they have on iOS with TouchID.

    I've been thinking a lot about this. Lollipop 5.01 destroyed my note 4 and made it my most loved, yet most hated device to date. There are quirks about the Note 5 I'd like changed, but those are just bug fixes and patches I don't think Samsung needs Marshmallow for. I do love a good update, but I'm still bitter and extremely cautious after I saw a fantastic device ruined by a new software. I'm so insanely happy with how the note 5 runs 98% of the time that I would possibly cry if I update to MM and it destroys it. More practically, I'm not keeping it as long as I kept the Note 4 holding out for a change, I'm just moving over to iOS possibly. If it fixes the Android System battery drain and truly brings deep sleeping, I'm all for it.

    Yup, as long as the carriers don't mess with it, you can turn off the heads up. V did it on his Nexus.

    I'm ready for it to turn off heads up notifications without having to use a third party app and for the access to permissions for each app.

    I'll wait a bit.
    I have my Note 5 setup the way I want and it is working real well for me.
    Why mess with a good thing till I see that the majority of Puffy White bugs are deceased.

    Well this is why Google, then Samsung and then the carrier, has testing.

    I have been updating since Donut, I have never had a firmware update that has messed up my phone. Now an incremental update, yes, I have had one mess up my phone, but that has probably been more of an issue with a corrupted download.

    I'm kinda excited for it. Since the phone is still under warrantly, as it should be for everybody, I'm not worried about it killing the phone.

    I'm excited for the doze feature which should help battery life and the Google Now on Tap.

    It's tougher for Android updates. There are so many handsets from different manufacturers. Then layer on carrier mods. Some handsets won't do as well. But I'll take the update when I can get it.

    5.0.1 was just a terrible version of Android for a lot of devices. Here's hoping Google has learned from that and 6.0 will be an actual upgrade.

    I would like to have it and will be watching the forums for those brave souls who just have to be first to run it on our notes... but like others have said I'll be waiting till I know for sure that it is a upgrade not filled with debilitating issues.

    I may regret it somewhat, but I'll take the update first. I'll let you know if the water is fine. I usually sign up for betas.

    Just a comment ... I know firsthand that Apple has made their fair share of mistakes, but I still don't have this cringe of fear when a FINAL iOS or OS X update is released. I'd like Google and the OEMs to get past the negative stigma they've created for themselves.
