LG-G4-vs-HTC-One-M9-11

While a few users on the web claimed to receive an update to Marshmallow on the LG G3 back in January, the rollout seemingly never surfaced on a wider scale – until now. The LG G3, LG G4, and HTC One M9 are all starting public rollouts of Marshmallow today on Verizon’s network.

As you’d expect, all the Marshmallow staple features like Doze and Google Now on Tap are present and accounted for with all three devices. How much a difference the former makes on battery life remains to be seen, though I can tell you the update has noticeably increased standby time on my Nexus 5 and Nexus 6, so I’d expect at least some visible improvement.

As you’d expect, the rollout will happen slowly over the next few weeks, so don’t be too surprised if you have yet to receive an update notification. You can always attempt to manually check for the update by going into Settings, but there’s no guarantees with this method either.
