Marshmallow, 06 Mar 2017Is it marshmallow?My S5 mini got his update to marshmallow today and it is the best update ever...no problems at all...my battery isn't draining, good wifi reception, keyboard improvements, good work samsung !!!!!!
Problem with battery after Marshmallow update. Drops low after quick time. Does anybody has the same problem ?
Currently downloading what is presumably Marshmallow (Samsung updater never says in advance). Sim-free in the UK, but probably a Romanian unit, which I suspect determined the schedule.
to avoid long wait bootup.. hard reset first before upgrade your phone to marsmallow.
When will Namibia users of S5 mini receive the marshmallow update?
Does the update have a positive effect on the battery drain issue currently on lollipop?
I bought a brand-new G800Y model Dec/16 in Switzerland, and it was delivered with Lollipop. I started to use it the first time later in Brazil, and there it showed to be SIM-locked; the seller informed that was Samsung's problem and refused to fix it.
So I had to root it, and with a new official Lollipop firmware download everything worked then fine.
I'm continuing to use it now without any problems in Brazil (including LTE), and in Feb/17 it updated itself automatically with Marshmallow 6.0.1 - even after all that wandering...
Android Lollipop 5.1.1
The best for Samsung Galaxy S5 mini
Can u pair device with Gear Fir (1. generation of Gear Fit)? Has anyone done it?
Looks like only Vodafone and T-Mobile updates are rolling out across Europe. The rest of us have to wait :(
After upgrade cant' syncronize s5 mini marshmallow with Kies. Does anybody have the same problem ?
Galaxy S5 mini owners have had to wait for a very long time to get Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The last major update released for this handset was back in 2015 when it was bumped up to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. We first heard about a possible Marshmallow update for this handset about four months ago when it was reported that the Galaxy S5 mini duos (SM-G800H) had received Android 6.0.1 over-the-air in Russia. The Galaxy S5 mini (SM-G800F) is now indeed receiving said update in Europe.
Firmware version G800FXXU1CQA1 is now being rolled out for the Galaxy S5 mini in Europe for both the branded and unbranded versions of this handset. Not only does it bump up the device to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow but it also includes the January 2017 security patch. Once the update is installed, users will find that the handset has an improved user interface, enhanced notifications experience as well as a handful of new features.
This is the last major platform update for the Galaxy S5 mini since it wonÂ’t be making the jump to Android 7.0 Nougat which is currently the latest iteration of Android and has only been released by Samsung for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge so far. Galaxy S5 mini users in Europe will now start receiving the OTA update notification on their handsets. Those who are interested in manually flashing the firmware can download it from our firmware section.

Still waiting for an official Marshmallow firmware for Europe. Still only available for pointless countries like UAE and Morocco. Come on Samsung, hurry up and make this available in Europe already. The Marshmallow manuals have been on the European websites for months now and still no sign of it.
Maybe time to ditch the S5 Mini and go for a Galaxy A3 (2017) instead.
shanth24x7, 01 Feb 2017Hi all, This might be too late to write opinions on this phone. But i purchased this phone ve... moreI didn't read the whole post. But I remember feeling the same way with the battery life. But then I realized it has a removable battery. As well as the new portable batteries on sale now. With those alone fixed my battery life problem. Buy a spare for $10 and have it fully charged. Also have a portable charger ready. I don't worry about battery life anymore as its very difficult to use both batteries in a single day.
