    I just bought a Rogers GS6 128GB model but it comes with 5.0.2 out of the box. I checked the Samsung website and it says that it is the current version of the OS, although the Note 5 has 5.1.1. I called Rogers and of course they said call Samsung. Does anyone with a GS6 from Rogers know if the 5.1.1 update is coming? There are some features in 5.1.1. that are missing in 5.0.2, namely the ability to alphabetize the app icons (actually quite important). Thanks.

    Rogers may have temporarily halted upgrade due to possible bugs.

    Software update as well as Samsung website say 5.0.2 is current. However I *finally* got hold of someone at Rogers Live Chat who actually knew what he was talking about. Apparently the update was pulled by Rogers for some problems. They have a website where you can check current OS versions for EVERY phone they sell. The chart says 5.1.1 for the GS6 ***COMING SOON***. Are you sure you're on the GS6 (not the Edge)?

    I'm also on 5.0.2 I've been checking for an update everyday for a month now. I even am checking sammobile for the 5.1.1 firmware for the Canadian model so I can flash it myself but its not there either. :/

    5.1.1 running on s6 32gb gold ..... I didn't know they pulled it ... I got it the same day it was released .... I've had it for 3 weeks now ... Geez that sucks ... Hopefully it's available to you soon ... Extremely pleased with the update ... No lag at all ... Better battery and Ram performance .... Then again every phone is different... Oh and cool looking icons as well !

    Yeah I hope they release it soon. Battery life has been less than stellar, I hope that's not a harbinger of battery performance later on. I've watched several YouTube reviews of the phone and almost every one comments on this issue. Past Galaxy S phones I"ve owned have been horrid (S3 and S4 in particular), but I have a business-issued S5 which has amazing battery life. Thanks for your comments, though, much appreciated!

    My battery life hasn't improved since 5.1.1, just an FYI. Since you just got the phone give it some time, I found it gradually improved with use.

    Did 5.1.1 include Samsung pay or is that something the carrier has to put in the update?

    Hey there,
    I also noticed an update yesterday on Rogers yesterday. Still 5.1.1 as expected... agree that this is the official (corrected) release.
