Asus Padfone S is a device that has been released with Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS back in July 2014. Well, it seems that this handset is finally getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, although we all know that the latest Android OS is Nougat. Being a device that’s two and a half years old, the Asus Padfone S is doing pretty well.
The Android Marshmallow comes with many new features such as Doze mode or run-time application permissions. Keep in mind that by installing the OTA file on your device, it will remove 22 pre-loaded applications, but it is good to know that the internal memory will most likely reduce its capacity after updating.
At the same time, the Android Marshmallow on Padfone S will also remove some features, such as the ability to install or run applications from the microSD card. At the same time, the multi-user feature will not be supported anymore on the Padfone S. In other words, if you’ve used to share the phablet with your family or friends, keep in mind that you will NOT be able to use multi-user once you upgrade your handset to Android Marshmallow.
However, if you own an Asus Padfone S and you don’t mind losing the multi-user feature, we suggest you to install Android Marshmallow as soon as you receive a notification informing you that your device is ready to be updated.
It is good to know that you can also manually check for the update by heading to your device’s Settings -> About Phone and selecting “System Updates”. Once the OTA update is available for your Asus Padfone S, make sure that you connect to a Wi-Fi network before you start downloading it to your device.
