The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910F Android 6.0 Marshmallow update reaches the UK
How do I know the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910F Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has arrived? My daughter’s Note 4 smartphone received the automatic OTA (over the air) Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910F Android 6.0 Marshmallow update this afternoon. This was great news except that my own Note 4 remains on Android 5 Lollipop for now. We’re both on the UK Three network.
The update was confirmed by Samsung some time ago and it has been expected for several months. The more rare SM-N910C version of the Note 4 sold in the UK, which uses Samsung’s own Exynos chip-set, received the update several weeks ago.

If you don’t have a Samsung phone you may be wondering what all the fuss is about because Android 6 has been available for the best part of a year on other devices. And that’s the point. Because Samsung has a custom skin, TouchWiz, highly integrated with Android, it takes much longer for Samsung versions of new Android releases to emerge. For us Galaxy Note users it takes even longer because the Note is S-Pen enabled and comes with a suite of unique S-Pen applications.
Nevertheless, I am grateful because the Note 4 was launched in 2014 and replaced by the Note 5 at the end of last year. The Note 6 will be revealed this August. It’s also the second Android version update for the Note 4 as it was originally released with Android 4.4 KitKat.
What? I’m using an obsolete phone? Well, yes, but it’s a really great phone, not just because of the S-Pen but because it’s fast, has an amazing 2560×1440 pixel Quad HD (QHD) Super AMOLED screen, great accessories and it retains a microSD memory card slot. In many ways it’s better than the later Note 5.
Anyway, my daughter is amused that I’m having to wait for my own Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910F Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, but I’m sure the wait will be worthwhile. For more information on the Note 4 Marshmallow update read all about it gottabemobile.com.
