Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Gets Android Nougat Update

Good news for Galaxy Note 5 users! This loved device is now starting to receive the update to the Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s not the most recent version of the Android OS, but it’s quite close, and it’s still better than the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Currently, the European users are receiving the update, but we should soon expect it to be rolled out in the US and in other countries too.

Details about the Update

As you might have expected, the update is quite big. It measures 1289 MB, so you should make sure that you are connected to Wi-Fi before starting to download the update for the device. Moreover, make sure that there is enough space on the device both for downloading and for installing the OS.

New Features

There are quite a few additions and features for the Note 5 device. It may not seem so, because many of the changes are found under the hood, but you should test it out and see. There aren’t many user-facing improvements for this particular device, since it doesn’t use Samsung’s skin on top. However, one of the most appreciated changes is the improvement brought to Doze.

The Doze feature had been announced together with Marshmallow back in 2015, but Nougat made it even more interesting. It is engaged sooner now, so that it can help with the battery life. Moreover, it brings the phone into a deeper state of sleep, so that it will use less power even when the phone is not in use. And extending battery life is definitely important, especially when we’re talking about an older phone, such as the Galaxy Note 5.

One last feature included in the Nougat update is the multiwindow feature. However, Samsung provided this before that, and they are keeping their own multi-window feature over the one included in Android.
