10 Nexus Android Marshmallow Release Date Tips



You Might Not Want to Install Early Though

You Might Not Want to Install Early Though

If you aren't familiar with the manual installation process, or if you hate running into problems, you should probably skip the manual upgrade in favor of the OTA. 

While the manual update will get the software on board your device early, it also has the potential to harm your device. Veteran Android users shouldn't have any problems but if you're new to Android or you're not confident in your abilities, you'll want to wait for the OTA to arrive. It's as simple as that. 

We'll take it a step further too. You might not want to install the OTA the second it arrives either. Android updates, especially big system updates like Android 6.0, have the potential to bring bugs and negatively impact performance. 

If you wait a few days, you'll be able to survey the landscape and get a better read on the update's performance. Remember, Google won't make you download this update so you'll want to take your time.

    The title is wrong I think, should be “Some time” not “sometime” :)

    You can also use multirom as well and load up Lollipop as a fallback.

    After my 6 upgrade, battery life went way down. I checked everything in this article and then some. Got rid of battery app even. What I found is the wi-fi was on even though it was set to be off when asleep – the only way was to manually turn off wi-fi and that cut the drain. I use a Kindle app so I don’t know if that was a contributor or not. Could there be a bug in the OS for the wi-fi sleep?

    in my case I had used a fake APN to disable regular internet traffic while keeping mms and other free data. That seriously drained the battery fast.

    On my nexus 6, I lost the ringer disable timeline option. No longer can I select permanent. temporary or on when I use my volume button on the phone side. I also get a phantom notification box on the status bar at the top of the screen.

    My volume turns itself back on from having it muted. Is there a fix for that yet?

    After the automatic Marshmellow install on my Samsung S5, the WiFi is ALWAYS switching on by itself.
    I have not installed any apps since it upgraded.
    Cant find a cure ..Battery also drains
