When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.


For more info on this process check out our page:

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?


The below table provides info on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 04/04/2016. If no info is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.


When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices & once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, where it’s made available for a small number of users (5% for example) initially. If no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll be gradually made available to more & more users over a period of a couple of weeks.

Why no testing on Marshmallow for the Sony Xperia Z5, both Telstra and Vodafone have this undertesting, and have since late March. But Optus haven't even started yet???

Unbelievable places like nepal and chile have 6.0.1 available for the s6 and u guys aren't even testing yet, it seems Australia and especially Optus are becoming a tech backwater

So why is it that all the major android news sites are saying that Au carriers got the update months ago yet there is absolutely no news on it from the carriers. This is pretty pathetic especially from the two BIGGEST carriers out there....

It would be nice to see Australian S5's get on the Android 6 list given that Trinidad and Tobago have it, the US has it, and Korea has had it for months......

My contract is up in 6 months Might think about getting the free phone  off Optus then selling it and buying an unbranded phone off ebay.

It's almost May and you still haven't delivered the 6.0 update for the LG G3.

Last time I'll be bundling my phone with Optus. Galaxy S6 should have received Marshmallow update by now. Disgraceful Optus.
