Better late than never? The Asus ZenFone 2 is finally getting Marshmallow, after much delay.

Despite updating the ZenFone Zoom and ZenFone Selfie to Android 6.0 Marshmallow months ago, the ZenFone 2 hasn’t seen the same kind of love. Until now.

Clearly missing the original Q2 2016 release target, many were wondering if the ZenFone 2 would ever make the move to Marshmallow but finally the wait is over. ZenFone 2 (ZE551ML) is being upgraded right now, though it appears to be rolling out in stages.

Just like we saw with the other ZenFone 2 family members, the biggest changes to the Asus Marshmallow updates isn’t what is being added, it’s what is going away.

Over 20 bundled apps will no longer be present after the update, making for a much sleeker software experience. There is a few new additions however, including Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, Google Messenger, and Google Calendar. And of course, all the new features you’d expect with Marshmallow will also be on board.

Excited for the update? Or did you already jump ship from the ZenFone 2 after seeing such a slow update cycle? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
