    Is there a reason for it not to get the upgrade?

    I might as well ask here, why can't past flagships receive the upgrade. Is it...

    Incompatible? I hope this isn't the case, really a flagship that's only two years old can't get it?
    Lazy?
    Marketing strategy where Google wants to use it as a selling point. Latest, greatest.
    If the carrier branded devices don't get it until 2016Q2, what's the point? If you are keeping the device, that's one thing but folks might be tempted to upgrade instead of waiting.

    For the majority of us, it won't matter if the S6 receives Android M. For how often we upgrade, few of us will still have the S6 as a daily driver by the time it would see it.

    I still don't understand how, with my Verizon Iphone 6, I can get IOS updates really quickly directly from Apple and yet with my wife's Verizon Galaxy S6, we have to wait for a long time until Verizon allows an update.( which is pretty much needed because of the memory issue)

    If you don't use the carrier installment plans and use the two year plans, an endangered species, then upgrade will be a great help.

    Apple has a lot of leverage and control as they are the only source of Apple devices. With the Android devices, it is less so. Carriers do take a long time but they are making sure that the devices perform well on their networks.

    Just something that occurred to me from purely financial point of view, but if you upgrade every single year mostly because of wanting newer OS versions, Android flagships would actually end up costing you more to own than iPhones upgraded every 2 years.

    Or if you're like me who hasn't been under any kind of contract / agreement in years (still have unlimited data on Verizon), I use my phones for 2+ years since I buy them full retail or used on eBay. So yeah, software updates mean a lot to me, since I want to get the most out of my 2 year old phone.

    Probably true, but I suspect many one-or-more upgrade per year people would do so regardless of platform.

    I get my phones, new, at a good price and then sell them high. Having 3 people on the plan with basic phones, cross upgrades are simply contract renewals.

    My S5 for instance. I bought it for $1 and sold for $300. My Note 3 was free from the carrier and I sold it for $450.

    When is Android M being released? If its third quarter then I can't see us getting it before the end of the year

    This is one of the things I love about Apple and why I'm glad I got to keep my iPhone six plus. I get the updates at the exact same time even though I'm in Australia. It's a HUGE deal

    Then you need to switch to a Nexus device or other Google device.
