Why is the HTC One M8 getting the new update and not the S6 Edge? The Note 5 has been pushed, why not for the other "flagship" phones?

Samsung isn't done with the S6 Edge. There are at least four active updates being pushed out on the Verizon Wireless network. The Note 5, HTC One M8, DROID Turbo 2 and the Sony phone.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

That's not true. Samsung sent all marshmallow updates to Verizon almost a month ago now. It's Verizon thays holding up the update not Samsung.

Have proof? Like someone with clout and not a low level rep (they would never know and their little computers will never tell them). If they did have that information it would be easy to find when even the international versions would be updated. Just food for thought.

Yeah Samsung released an announcement about 3 or 4 weeks ago. The common work flow for software updates is Android releases it to the phone manafactures who in turn release it to the service providers who in turn release it to the public.  They all make their own tweeks to it and add their own bloatware.  Feel free to go check out Samsungs website for more information.

I am on board with ThomasPII's statement. I've heard and read that carriers will add their bloatware to the image, then send it back to the manufacturer and claim there's a problem with the manufacturers build because of incompatibility between the vendor designed app or other bloatware and manufacturer prepared OS image.

That's [removal required by the Verizon Wireless Terms of Service] off the Internet. Manufacturers already went on record multiple occasions carriers don't do modifications. The carriers give the code in advance to manufacturers where they implement the code. When manufacturers are done they are given to the carrier to test. If it fails it goes back to the manufacturer to further work the code until carriers are satisfied.

Sony did an AOSP project with Google, and found out the average time carrier testing took was 1 month... The longest was manufacturers development and licensing from BTW, WiFi, and FCC which used to take an average of you months. This is why Google made the PDK to shorten that period.

But of course news outlets didn't report this because well... it isn't going to get the ratings.
