An Essential Newsflash Regards to Marshmallow and Nexus Devices


The recent Marshmallow Operating System is truly a mesmerizing offering from the Android and has been in the hottest news even before its release. The release was welcomed with insane fervor and stunning reviews. The users of the previous version were desperately waiting for this OS as the buzz about the mouthwatering features of this update was the main headlines for months.


As was expected, in the first part of its release, the Android Marshmallow update was available to Google devices and the Nexus line-up was the first in this regard. However, the important part of the news was that not all the device owners of Nexus 5, 6, 7 and 9 are going to receive the update and was confined to few owners in the first phase. Slowly and gradually, it will be available for all the owners of Nexus line-up followed by OS availability to all the devices that runs it.

The whole update phenomenon was scheduled to be performed in planned steps. In the first step, Google displays the factory image of the OS update available on its official website within one week after the Nexus event. In the second place, the OTA updates will be initiated rolling out to device owners. However, the tory image however can be intimidating for non-technical users, as it is like a factory reset that re-installs the system files of the device.

Here, one thing has to be kept in mind from users’ perspective that the factory image can turn out to be a non-pleasant experience for some category of users particularly those who are not that good with the usage and technicality of this device. Hence, most of the users would love to opt for direct OTA update instead of the factory image option.
