Users of a number of Nexus devices have been enjoyed the Android Marshmallow update. The only devices yet to be upgraded and updated include the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and the Nexus 7; they’ve yet to enjoy the benefit that the new iOS has to offer.
There’s been a number of changes to the different Google Services offered on the Google Play Store. However, the Android Marshmallow has all the changes at default. This iOS offers a new look to several applications while ensuring the home screen stays similar to the Lollipop.
Marshmallow uses a vertical app drawer that keeps the apps in the row and can easily find any time of the day. There’s also the possibility of a built-in Night Mode in an upcoming update. When it comes to Marshmallow, it’s much more than the App Standby or Doze that offer a longer battery life.
What Devices Will Get The Marshmallow Update?
When it comes to HTC devices, the company has been a bit slow in the past in updating phones. However, the HTC One M8 and the HTC One M9 will get the Marshmallow update along with the following phones: HTC One M9+, HTC One E9+, HTC One E9, HTC One ME, HTC One E8, HTC One M8 Eye, HTC One Butterfly 3, HTC Desire 826, HTC One 820, and HTC Desire 816.
Not a well-known brand, the company works quickly to give their device holders the latest updates. The only device yet to get the green light for the update is the Huawei Asced P7.
As of now, all devices except the previously mentioned Nexus devices have been updated to Marshmallow 6.0 and 6.0.1 The possibility of them being updated is low for two reason: potential hardware incompatibility and age.
LG announced it would be the first manufacturer to offer the Marshmallow on their phones. However, LG G4 and V10 are the only phones to have gotten the update. The LG G3 is currently in testing phases and will eventually be released on a global nature in the near future.
This manufacturer is one of the first to have jumped onto the Marshmallow bandwagon and update their phones. Motorola has publicly noted which phones is set to receive the upgrade, with some – Moto X Play and Moto X Pure Edition – have already gotten the upgrade.
Samsung most recent phones (2016 first quarter) will get the update – Note 4, Note 5, S5 and S6 device generations. Galaxy S4 and earlier model users won’t get the update.
