Verizon Rolls Out Updates for Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+ and LG G5


Verizon recently availed Android Marshmallow updates for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 as well as the dual edge Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ users.

In a bid to ensure that the devices run on the most up to date software, the American wireless carrier is rolling out another software update for these two flagships from 2015, in addition to the LG G5, a flagship that was unveiled a few months ago.

At the moment, the most significant update that Android users can expect to see coming to their devices is the one carrying Android 6.0/6.0.1 Marshmallow. But since these three smartphones are already running on this OS, it means the latest Verizon update is a minor one. Of course, such software updates will always be expected to include things like fixes for bugs and errors and Verizon’s latest rollout doesn’t disappoint on this front. It even goes further to include new tweaks to the user interface as well as feature enhancements, but more importantly, the update comes with security patches for the three phones.

LG G5 was announced at the MWC 2016 event in Spain and released more than a month later. This is actually an early update for this device. While many will be wondering what this update is all about, well, it has everything to do with last year’s Stagefright. The new device receives security updates for this month in a bid to keep it safe from any attempted hacking. The update bumps the device’s software build number to VS98712A and users will be treated to aesthetic enhancements with respect to Visual Voice Mail, tweaks to the airplane mode and more.

As far as Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the S6 Edge+ are concerned, the build number is bumped to VRU2BPD4. Similar to the LG G5, these two smartphones will also be receiving the latest Android Security Bulletin courtesy of this update. Other things include the usual bug fixes as well as a new, but optional feature for answering voice and video calls.
