I got the September security patch and installed it yesterday. The update is 21MB. In charging my phone today for the first time on a empty battery, I was shocked to see the battery reach 84% after 1 hour of charge. Prior to this update 1 hour of charge would replenish the battery by 71%. Has this happened to anybody else? I'm wondering if it's an improvement in the update or my battery is acting up and going bonkers (smile).

Standby time is better. Usage times is only better if you activate DOZE MODE for all apps and processes as well as the BATTERY OPTIMISATION feature. Both of these settings can be found in the built-in battery menu.

AnonD-425089, 19 Sep 2016yes, of course.To STEEVAN:
The problem may very well be your memory card. Take out the memory card and see if the gallery opens faster.
Im using my s5 from the day of launch
now after sammy released MM for this beast its performance is better than lollipop or KK for me
I used stock rom and it lacks so many new features like themestore and UI as s7edge
SO i have ported a s7edge rom for our s5 now it has all new features like themes, new Systemui , settings, game launcher and game tools, and the ram management is better
also i get 4 Hours of SOT(Screen on Time)
this is the best mobile for a person like me till now as it as very important feature like IR Blaster, airview&gesture also Ip67
Front camera is ok for video chatting
Custom ROM: Wanted Rom v6.2 -(XDA) :-)
Can anybody tell me if the 250 MB update is something useful or just a security patch?
Cause I downgraded to lollipop and was wondering if I should go back on marshmallow if the update makes it any better.

I too have S5 octa-core. Expect more overall speed, greater smoothness, loudspeaker seems louder. You will be prompted to give apps permission at least upon first run. Some apps you will have to give permission on several occasions.
If you register your fingerprint you will be required to manually enter your password upon restarting the S5. It's a Marshmallow thing. RAM management is said to better but for me it's a hit and miss. Sometimes RAM seems to be managed perfectly other times it doesn't seem that way. It seems like the management part goes to sleep at times.
The upgrade is worth it. Just remember to CLEAR SYSTEM CAHCE and do a FACTORY RESET after upgrading for best possible performance.
