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 28/12/2015. 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.

Just updated my HTC One M8 and it got VERY hot by the end of the process, hotter than I've felt it before even when gaming (not serious games).

Also interesting that it looks like the update installed the Facebook App and I cant uninstall it only disable it...

Hey cybermitheral - the Facebook app would have to to with Android deciding to build it into the phone / software. Have you noticed your phone overheating since?

Hello! Samsung stated that they would be releasing monthly security updates for their Galaxy Note 5; for example, they have released SMR-OCT-2015, SMR-NOV-2015 and SMR-DEC-2015.

However, Optus does not seem to be implementing them, you have only pushed out SMR-OCT-2015. Will you be pushing out these remaining updates? Also will you be pushing out future updates regularly? 

 

P.S. Samsung’s statement regarding these updates was a big selling point for me.
