    One thing you might want to do when you update is reboot the phone. I know it reboots after updating, and all those apps update. As soon as you get back to your phone's homescreen, power down the phone and power it back up. I actually had 3 more apps update doing that. You WILL get an error after updating that Google Play Services will not work until it updates. It will. Quickly. So far, so good and Google Now on Tap is just COOL.

    Well I sort of tested doze, phone off WiFi, power saving mode, and airplane mode, left idle for 8 hours... Woke up before my alarm, the phone lost 3% over night :( in Lollipop it would normally lose 0

    I changed the title of the thread, as Marshmallow is here. All of you that have installed and received the update, post all your findings, as you all know many don't like to install new OTA until they see it out in the public release for a while, so by posting your findings, might help others decide. I just got the update and have not installed it yet, but as soon as I do I will post my findings. ;)

    If you plugged the phone in overnight you would wake up with 100%. Every time. ;)

    1. They charge to 100% and then stop charging. They are then running on the battery. When it drops to a certain level (like 96%) it starts charging again. Taking a device off a charger that has been connected a long time ... the battery may be less than 100%.

    2. History has shown that measuring battery the first week after a system update can be very deceiving. The usage will likely be very different form what it normally is.

    I received the update this morning and I'm not on Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular; I'm currently using Cricket (AT&T). Installation went smoothly and when it was complete I did a Factory Data Reset. I've been installing applications, one by one, and I haven't encountered any problems.

    Did you remove the SD card before the reset or leave it in ?

    All the dumb lag and annoying stutters are gone, battery life seems to be worse but the phone might just be settling to the new OS. Phone feels faster. They fixed the bug where if you rotate the screen in a video the sound would mute, not anymore! Now to wait for 6.0.1 :)

    Only reason why someone may not want to update is the bugs that Marshmallow has, like I noticed a few minimal app crashes (no well known apps) and if you click the Bluetooth settings, turn the toggle on with the switch, then turn it off... It'll turn itself back on.

    Oh, and ambiet display is gone forever now. (The thing that Nexus phones have)

    All this time waiting for the OTA, you get it, and now you're already waiting for the next OTA? You're just a real edge-of-the-seat kinda guy, aren't you? :D :p

    Also, can anyone explain to me how Doze works and how long it takes to activate it?

    So if my phone is in my pocket, not being used Doze doesn't work? It should IMO, most of the time I'll have my phone in my pocket not on a desk.

    It's all based on opinion.

    Contact Google to let them know and maybe they'll accommodate you in the next update.

    You sound like I said a bad thing... just suggesting ideas on how they could improve on Doze.

    I got MM OTA a couple days ago...AT&T. So far, so good. I did the cache partition wipe, but did NOT do a factory reset. I don't understand the logic behind a total reset....
