    I've been thinking about the Nexus but I'm actually one of those people who use the S Pen for drawing. So it would be a tough call. Just I hate AT&T especially with how long it takes them to do anything. I was thinking on maybe T-Mobile... but to change carriers just for updates seem silly lol.
    I wanted both wireless charging and the thumbprint open. That combo is a winner for me and hopefully the next iteration will have it. I like the S Pen but quick updates plus no bloatware and skins are more pluses. I've heard HTC will be making it....the last HTC phone I owned (Rezound) had a great antenna so I'll be looking forward to it's release, when, October?

    Past Nexus devices have been released about that time.

    Still no update. I have a feeling that AT&T will not be getting MM on the Note 5.

    I don't get why some are so scared of an update. I've had several Android phones over the years and never had any problems with updates, they always made things better, which is what updates are for.

    Went from K to L on a note 3. Ran glitchy. Did a reset and ran perfect. A lot of people don't want to do the reset. I didn't either, but once I bit the bullet, it was heaven. Ran nice and smooth afterwards.

    After any large OS update on any platform, it's wise to do a full reset and start fresh. Too much code change to roll into an upgrade and expect perfection.

    Waiting and waiting. My Note5 gets buggy at times. My next phone may be a carrier free Note 6 or a sequel to the LG V10. IPhone may be a last resort because iTunes have movies that Google Play Movies dont have

    Yeah, I've been waiting for the update so I could do a factory refresh on mine, it's been glitchy at times.

    Like 2 months ago I decided to wait for marshmallow so I can factory reset when I get it. I didn't want to factory reset twice so I've been waiting since then. Hopefully it comes at some point this month

    As I have said in a previous post. I really think AT&T has decided to skip MM for the Note 5 and S6. I know they say it's coming but the refuse to say when. The refreshing news is the FCC investigation going on over carriers and manufactures either skipping updates or releasing them in an untimely manor. My hope is the FCC coming down hard on the carriers which I feel is the biggest offenders. I know most new android versions not only have additional features but they also contain security updates. Failure to push updates only put us users at risk.

    +1 This sums up 99% of everything that can be said about updates.

    3 Things happen and all are fixed with a factory reset (which is the same thing you end up with if you go buy a new phone in aggravation)

    1) Left overs. The new OS installs over the old OS and some left over bits of the old one causes problems. Maybe in the cache.
    2) App issues with the new OS. Apps adapt themselves to a point to the OS they are installed on. They sometimes don't adapt well causing issues (remember seeing the "updating apps" screen during an upgrade)
    3) Apps that simply don't do welll with the new OS, due to age or poor design.

    Yep, as has been said repeatedly in response to your feelings... it isn't going to happen. There are a lot of Note 5's out there. If they just skip the update completely it will be a huge issue. N won't be out until the fall. That is 4-6 months away yet. If they haven't started MM yet, then maybe, but sine they clearly have started work on it, they will release it.

    I am hoping that Note 6 comes with N. The #1 thing I hate about the Note series it that it is the last phone to come out BEFORE the upgrade cycle begins. Lets get N on the Note 6 and be done with it. I am on a 12 month Next plan, so that I can upgrade each year when the new device comes out.

    No way Samsung is going to go straight to N for the Note 5. As boufa says above, that's like Sept-Nov 2016. It's not ready even for Nexus phones yet. Not sure what the delay is, but Samsung isn't going to cut into it's future sales for the Note 6 by gifting N to the "old" Note 5...

    I've recently heard about the FCC and carrier software updates. How will this affect Android in the future? Do you think we can live in a perfect world some day where AT&T doesn't take months to update their bloat?

    Nope. Carriers will dodge it via their slimy legal department. Nothing will change.

    Just a theory on why AT&T has not done any MM updates on Samsung. AT&T wants customers to use more of their bloatware apps and is pressing Samsung to cut back some of theirs. Leaving user with less or no choice. I know it's crazy. But I'm bored.

    The only way the Note 5 sold by AT&T will aver see MM is with cyanogen mod 13 unfortunately. I do think a tiff happened between AT&T and Samsung. This makes sense because the other carriers had it within a couple of weeks of each other and us Note 5 users on AT&T were unfortunately left out in the cold. About android N. We won't be seeing that until cyanogen comes out with it. Kind of a bummer as most of us are on 2 year plans which means every other year look forward to being screwed by AT&T.

    Last I heard you couldn't root ATT branded notes. So nope cm13 not possible. It's gonna come eventually but when is obviously yet to be seen.

    Nexus devices for the most part should work on AT&T. The unlocked HTC 10 will too. It's just a matter of finding the right phone that has the proper bands. Since it's not an AT&T branded phone, some features will be missing like HD voice and such, but at least with unlocked phones, you can either root/ROM or expect updates in reasonable times.

    I successfully rooted and installed CM 13 on an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3. Works pretty good actually.
    That's the GS3, newer galaxy phones are a different story. Starting with the Note 4, they have been pretty much unrootable thanks to Knox. And even if somehow root is achieved, it'll disable Samsung pay.
