    I got the marshmallow 6.0.1 update a few months ago. The only things that changed were the icons and how some menus look when you go into them. I.e. battery, storage, apps, etc. My drop down notification bar is still blue and not thee fresh white i see everyone else has. My app menu looks the old way, and my lock screen with the time never changed.

    I have LG so don't know what Samsung's layout is like, but I'm guessing the other people's different notification panels are either different make, aftermarket launcher, or rooted and customised. Samsung has Touchwhiz UI over the top of whatever Google make, it looks very much MM UI to me (minimalist & bold) but to be honest, aesthetically I don't think MM was a big change over LP really (I think N will be much the same too).

    Having an OS update does not necessarily mean the phone will look different. Most OS changes are under the hood like battery management, adoptable storage, etc. What happened to your phone is that the OS update simply did not change the TouchWiz layout on top of the the OS.

    Also, the S6 and S7 has a theme engine allowing us to change colors and stuff.

    Frankly it looks more like Samsung, than Lollipop or Marshmallow.

    If it's any comfort, my note 4 on 6.0.1 looks exactly like that. It's Samsung's version.
