Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport were both released in 2014. Despite their aging status, these two devices are still very capable.
Sprint customers who currently use any of Samsung Galaxy Note Edge or the Galaxy S5 Sport can now enjoy all of the goodies that are being enjoyed by those already using the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.
It’s two years now since these two devices came to life and during this time, an awfully huge number of top-performing devices have hit the handset market. Talk of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 that came in last year as well as this year’s Galaxy S7. There is even more to come as Samsung is rumored to prepping an even better successor to the current phablet flagship – Samsung Galaxy Note 6. If you haven’t found time to upgrade your device to a newer one, there is some good news for you as you can now get the device to work the current OS and features.
American carrier Sprint has announced that it will be rolling out the Marshmallow update to Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and S5 Sport via an OTA update. In fact, the OS is already rolling out at the time of this writing and if it hasn’t reached your device yet, don’t worry, it will very soon. For those who can’t wait, you can go to the Galaxy Note Edge or S5 Sport’s settings and scroll down to About phone. While in there, check out for software updates and download the update if ready.
Once your Samsung Galaxy Note Edge or Galaxy S5 Sport has been updated with the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow, users will be treated to some of the latest features coming from both Samsung and Google. As usual with all software updates, expect the new Marshmallow OS to bring bug and error fixes to Galaxy Note Edge and S5 Sport on Sprint.
It’s a good thing that Sprint is showing to its loyal customers that it is not forgetting them and concentrating on newer devices. However, be warned that this will probably be the last software upgrade for these two devices as they will now have clocked the two-year cycle most OEMs give their devices as far as rolling out updates are concerned. This is basically why Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 have not been able to receive the Marshmallow update from the Korean company.
