I am currently downloading the new set OTA. I saw someone else said it's just a security update, but the file I'm currently downloading is 1.6GB. Seem rather large for a security update?

ATT Note 5 Software update

I am downloading that as well. it's been an hour and the download is 1/2 way done. No where in the news does ATT mention either SW update OR a security patch.. Hope I am not disappointed after this..

The whole thing gets on my nerves I like the Note series but really can't deal with update delays I think I'm going Nexus for my next phone.

6.0.1 released in Oct 2015 Samsung released March 2016 (5 months later) AT&T released June 2016 (3 months later than Samsung and 8 months later than Google) and this is a Flagship device?

The combination of an OEM known for being slow with updates (Samsung) and a carrier that's even worse, sad to say. A shame, really. The Note5 is an excellent phone all around. In truth AT&T is worse to deal with than the the the manufacturers themselves.

Time to go to Best Buy and have them push the update to my phone.

Whoa there buddy? Where is this magical Best Buy that actually has someone there that knows something about technology? /s

:)

Just follow the Step-By-Step guide and you could have had Marshmellow-2-slow a month ago.

Any Best Buy with a Samsung Experience in it will update your phone. Im on Cricket and on the Samsung Insights program, so no side loading. I just checked Smart Switch and it is not available today.

Well that takes all the fun out of things in my opinion. You're gonna watch some knucklehead have at it like a drunk girl at a frat party. Half the fun is gaining the experience hacking away at an ADB shell and figuring things out on your own. Damn kids these days.... Get off my lawn.

You are not understanding, I would all day but my phone is a free phone, I cannot modify the phone being in the Insights program, I cannot side load the program. I have a Nexus 6 for real fun, this phone is just my meh phone compared to the Nexus 6.

Also, the guy I deal with at the Samsung Experience probably knows more about android phones than 95% of the users on here, he is an awesome dude. He actually helped me root my first free Note 3 from the Insights program and was able to keep Samsung from seeing it so I would not lose the phone. Samsung has got smart though with the program and can tell now.

    When you updated to PE6, did it update from PE5 OTA? Just wondering because I'm one PE5 and it says my phone is up to date when i do an update check.

    You can't OTA from PE5 to PE6. You'd need to flash back to PB2 (firmware available in this forum) and then you'd get the OTA from PB2 to PE6.

    So overnight you're losing more than 5%? I don't use Greenify, just package disabler and I barely lose 3% overnight, sometimes less.
    me too around 2% overnight
