    Just received an Android security dated 8-1-16 on my ATT S5. Had to clear out cache and some more stuff as it needed 738MB more of room to install. Had hoped it was Marshmallow, but it was not. Oh well.

    Android 7.0 is about to be released and S5 AT&T customers still don't have 6.0. ?????

    Duh! Because this is the Galaxy S5 forum and not the the Galaxy S5 Note forum. The AT&T Galaxy S5 Marshmallow, Android 6.0.1, has only just started to roll out. :):)

    How much room is needed on S5 to do the update? Mine says delete some files or photos. I have 3.77 GB of internal room now. May have to wait 24 hours to retry the update.

    Usually these updates get pushed, but mine didn't start until I went looking for an update. Says it's 895.15MB. I think I already got the 738MB update two weeks ago.

    EDIT: Turns out that 895.15 MB was Android 6.0.1 Finally. It just said security update before the download. Didn't reveal what it really was until it was ready to install. I had read people reporting Marshmallow to be over 1 GB. I wonder if AT&T has been downloading it piecemeal, with each one just called "security update". Hmm...

    That must be. Mine wouldn't let me check for update again for 22 hours. But during night it must have finished download, because was ready to install when I got up next morning. Didn't take very long to install either.
