    I went to software updates since I'm on my works wifi (these sometimes work better on wifi), and it started downloading without asking, so I did a google search and found the article. I will probably do a factory reset, seems like I have to after updates, but I'll try for a while without once since I don't have internet access at home and see how it works tonight.

    If something happens and I'm late for work because my alarm, clock, etc., are on my phone, you think a software update glitch is a good excuse?

    ETA: After the initial set up it asked if I wanted to update, I clicked yes. Seems like others are okay with it, so I decided to give it a try. Now the wait.

    updated today. This was the first smooth update I've done on a Samsung device. No glitches, no problems. Phone actually feels smoother after the update. Software runs great. I'm very happy. Looks like the S7 now. Let's hope this smoothness continues!

    Look at it this way. You get to use Marshmallow a full year before N gets released for the Note 5, sometime next April.

    Been using this without a factory reset. Did turn off and on my phone though. No problems so far.

    I found the photo crop is now in the adjustment setting. Not am extra step, just not labeled "crop" anymore.

    Since I use a theme, I haven't noticed much difference. Only thing is my calender now does not use the theme. I had little yarn balls for the time and now it's just a basic, boring number flip.

    Swipe isn't any more accurate than before. Could be user error 😉.

    My Samsung Gear 2 Neo watch still connects and gives me notifications.

    Surprised Note 5 users had to wait so darn long for the update. I'm here impatiently waiting on the note 4. I just want to be able to take notes on the black screen. If this bad boy doesn't come soon I might just have to root. Congratulations folks.

    Note 4 wasn't built for Marshmallow. I'm a T-Mobile store manager and I've received an impressive amount of returns due to Note 4 getting Lollipop, the phone seems useless. I wouldn't recommend if your phone is currently working perfectly.

    I got that as well. Wasn't sure if it was caused by Good Lock or not. I just created a folder for these notifications. It's not as intrusive this way.

    Had it for a day now and it does seem a little faster in opening apps and so on. I have animations turned off so can't really speak about that. The battery seems slightly better but to be honest I always had great battery life (I have bluetooth on and leave wifi off). I did not do a factory reset after the install and no issues so far. The phone did get pretty warm during the process but it is at regular temp now and it sits inside a Tech21 case. I have it connected to my Acura via bluetooth and once I started up my vehicle I got a notification on the phone that needed me to authorize the connection which I did and haven't seen it since. This is much better than the update I had with my Note 4 last year but that was with AT&T and now I'm with T-Mobile... not sure if it's the carrier or a much better build of the update. All in all happy with it, only gripe is the awful folder colors.

    The update has vastly improved my note 5. Better battery management and smooth as silk. Love it!

    One quick question, wondering if this does it for everyone else. On the lock screen there is the phone and camera shortcut. The camera shortcut works fine but the phone one doesn't. I able to drag it until it's about the size of a half dollar and only able to see the # icon on the dial pad, then it wants me to enter my pin (which I do know). I thought this was supposed to be a shortcut and bypass the finger print/pin unlocking, is there somewhere else I'm supposed to change a setting or is this a security feature so people can just start using your phone? Thanks!

    It was for an emergency call. Now that doesn't work. I can use my fingerprint or password and used my fingerprint then it brought up the dial pad.

    Thanks, seems kind of pointless then to have it as a shortcut, I'll just turn it off.

    It does seem pointless.
    The camera one seems pointless when I have mine set to double tap the home button to bring the camera up. I'm going to change both.

    Hey all.
    I've been using my fingerprint on the note 5 but since marshmallow makes you use a backup password I chose the pin. Needless to say I forgot the pin. Now I can't access smart lock and other stuff like that. Incant reset cuz it asks for a pin. Ugh suggestions?

    Updated yesterday. I really like marshmallow.

    I like that there is a choice for a backup pin with fingerprint unlock because my password was a little too cumbersome every time I got junk on my thumb. It seems the fingerprint scanner is more accurate now too.

    The phone/camera shortcuts on the lockscreen are now replaceable! I now have one side set for google hangouts and the other with google now. I like that. I did lose the option for live weather lock screen but that wasn't working great for a month or two, samsung probably stopped supporting it.

    the only setting shortcut I would like to see added to the quicksettings pull down would be battery usage. Power save and ultra power save are options but there's no way I can see to set them to kick in automatically (maybe there is? I'm not sure).

    animations are more fluid and apps feel like they're opening quicker

    the material dark theme I use didn't convert all of the icons, but probably re-installing it will help? It did ask to update after I installed 6.0.1. It kind of bothers me the phone icon is always the one that doesn't get changed over because it's so out of place with a material theme. The stock theme isn't terrible anymore which is nice.

    Haven't had any bad things happen yet

    I use my finger print since my mm update yesterday. At first it was the swipe then password, but I went to settings and added a 3rd fingerprint setting and it works for me. I don't know if that third did it.

    I just checked and it says "swipe to unlock" then the option to use a fingerprint or password. But I skip all that and just use my fingerprint.

    Since MM, I can no longer use the fingerprint scanner, it forces me to use pin or pattern every time.

    That's odd. Mine says I have to swipe to unlock, but I just ignore that and use my fingerprint to unlock.

    ETA have you added or changed your fingerprint since the update? I thought I needed to, so I did add a third fingerprint option after the update. Maybe that's what makes mine work.
    Also, add several fingerprints, just buy touching. And I'm sure you're know, you don't need to swipe your finger, just touch the home button. Mine works so much better since the MM update.

    You might have to set your lock screen settings to use fingerprint again. I know I had to enable it again after updating.

    Fingerprint to unlock is finally usable! It never worked right for me with numerous tries and fingerprints. Sometimes it would require a reboot due to a big watery circle showing. NOW, it unlocks instantly! So fast you can hardly see the lock screen wallpaper. What a huge difference! I hope it continues to work this good. Happy to use fingerprints again and maybe now I will try Samsung Pay again. I was always hesitant getting to the register and having to stop and use a dang pin number when the fingerprint didn't work. Hooray!

    It's been a really solid update for me , I had no need to even do a factory reset, which is impressive.

    Device seems to definitely be faster especially in multitasking and doze seems to be working as expected
