Samsung Galaxy Tab S Marshmallow update arriving in the near future

The original Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablet is less than two years old which means that it’s still compatible with the current most recent Android release which is Marshmallow. Samsung hasn’t said when it’s going to come out with Marshmallow for this device but we’ve heard when the company is going to release Marshmallow for the original Galaxy Tab S.

According to our information, the original Galaxy Tab S is going to receive the Marshmallow update in the near future. Samsung is likely going to release this update in the third quarter so it can either arrive later this month or by August but it shouldn’t take longer than that. Marshmallow is most likely going to be the latest major Android release for this tablet as it may not get Android Nougat, which is yet to be publicly released even for the most recent mobile devices.

Finally! I switched to a Galaxy S5 from my iPhone and loved it. I replaced my 32 GB iPad with a 16GB Tab S plus a 64GB microSD and got real frustrated real fast. Imagine have 60+GB of free space then finding out I was limited by the on board memory. I figured out I never read anything of the memory limitations of the way Android worked in that SD cards were only for files and wouldn’t run my apps. Let’s hope this helps deal with my frustration or egad I may have to go back to Apple. C’mom Samsung… Read more »

This better be true. Samsung needs to support properly their flagship tablets, not leave them riddled with security holes. It’s just shameful stuff.

My Tab S doesn’t even last an hour now. I tried flashing a custom ROM. but the better is still terrible. Used to last all day. Is this a lollipop issue or should I get my Tab S battery replaced? You can jus sit and watch the percentage drop when not even using any app. Like 2 percent every 3 minutes. It’s not right.

I had a similar issue (though not as severe) and it wouldn’t charge very fast either. I ended up having to power down and use a fast charger to charge it at night. I ended up doing a factory reset and it seemed to clear up my issue.

If a hard reset (and custom rom) isn’t working then maybe you should replace the battery
