Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 may be one of the best smartphones on the market but a few issues related to software do impact upon the performance and the Korean OEM is working on updates to fix these issues.
A big update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow is expected to land early next year bringing with it security fixes, reduced battery consumption and strengthened privacy, but in the meantime, Samsung has begun issuing a maintenance update to optimise the battery usage.
What’s interesting is that Softpedia reports the update is rolling out to Note 5 users in Europe, even though the handset isn’t officially sold on the continent. It’s unknown which handsets are getting this maintenance update but we’ll let you know when we hear more; after using the update for the past day, stability and performance does seem to be improved but it remains to be seen just how much battery life it delivers.
Have you got the update on your Note 5? If so, which model do you have and from which country? Let us know in the comments below guys!
