    Just realized the marshmallow update is available for my note 5 (verizon) and I'm just wondering what the major differences are is there is any.?

    The ability to use an ad blocking app in the browser is wonderful. Makes browsing on a smartphone fun again.

    This alone, IMHO, makes it one of the better upgrades I've ever downloaded.

    Doze does seem to help some with battery drain while idle.

    UI changes are subtle but, again IMHO, pretty good.

    Selective permissions for apps is nice as well.

    Being able to sign into accounts on Web pages and more apps using fingerprints is pretty nice

    WiFi works fine and WiFi calling also works. There are a few areas where I do not get a Verizon signal but have WiFi, so I appreciate WiFi calling. And yes there are areas in the Northwest where there is no cell coverage by any of the carriers

    Didn't think about this until you mentioned it. Next time I'm on the Oregon Coast I'll actually be able to make phone calls instead of walking around until I find the perfect spot and try not to move at all until I'm done talking

    I'm having trouble changing system font. The same font I was using before marshmallow is now not supported. All other fonts too.

    Any major differences with the new marshmallow update?-6602.jpg

    I hope this isn't an outlier but, in comparison, before marshmallow by the time I got to 2 hours sot I'd be down to 60% battery remaining. It would almost always be about 20% per 1 hour screen on time.

    We can now control app permissions.
    We can optimize apps for battery.
    After a reboot if you're using fingerprint as security, you have to enter a PIN.
    Doze seems to work well.

    I have no issues with wifi or fonts.

    There is no issue with my wifi. This update is amazing. As others have stated in other threads, the built in browser supports ad blocking (need to download 'adblock fast' separately and set it up in browser advanced settings) and it SMOKES Chrome. It is really fast not sure if it's the ad blocking or something else but I am sure it's my new mobille browser.

    What about the stock sms app. There's no chat bubble choices anymore.

    This was probably available all along, but I just found it and it helps a lot to see the attached images in the forums that are too small. Is there a way to make bigger? Anyway, go into accessibility settings, direct access, turn it on and turn on magnifier window. Three taps on home button brings up magnifier and you can see attached screen shots. Sorry, this was probably wrong place for this but it helps me see stuff and maybe some didn't know about this like me.

    This may have also been true before update but I found it sort of interesting, kinda. When you look at the camera in recent apps, it shows the last thing your camera saw before you turned it off. So if you were gonna take a picture of something you shouldn't with someone else's phone and change your mind at the last second, there may still be a record of it

    I'm using the fonts that came with it, currently using rosemary.
    I also just installed Samsung sans, it works too.

    I was using the iFont app and a couple of other apps before the update and they worked fine. Now none are supported. Obe of the apps even said it was updated to support 6.0.

    I believe Samsung phones have done this since my Note 2. I'm pretty sure.

    I haven't had any WiFi issues so far. I live in an apartment so my WiFi signal is good whatever part I'm in. Otherwise I am enjoying the update a lot, smoother and nicer experience so far

    I've noticed that it is terribly slow while on the 2.4GHz band WITH Bluetooth enabled. If I turn BT off and remain on 2.4GHz, speeds are back to normal. While on 5Ghz, BT can be on without any degradation. It is not specific to one 2.4Ghz network either. It happens on any 2.4Ghz network (home, work and friend's). Really odd. I've read some other people having slow WiFi connections post upgrade as well but no mention if the scenario is the same as mine nor a fix.

    If you are on 2.4Ghz with BT on, try turning BT off and see if that improves.
