The new Doze feature that enables users to preserve their device's battery life is also being added to the Note 4. Device owners will also be able to make use of Wi-Fi calling to get in touch with their contacts.

New designs for the app icons and folders are also included in the latest software update.

Moving on now to what the latest Android Marshmallow update brings to the Galaxy S5, software version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1 also adds the same Now on Tap, Doze and Wi-Fi calling features, while also bringing in the new app and folder designs, Verizon noted.

A new drawing feature in Memo has also been added to the Tab S2 via the latest update for those who want to show off their more artistic tendencies. New animations and collages have also been introduced to Gallery for those who want to showcase their pictures in even more creative ways.
