Android 5.0 VS Android 6.0: Should I Update?

Compared to KitKat, Android 5.0 Lollipop completely changed how Android system looked while Android Marshmallow is much like Lollipop at first sight. Actually, Android 6.0 comes with a few new features that Android 5.0 don't have.

  • App permissions: When apps need access to parts of your phone or Google account, you can receive the request and choose to approve those requests or not.

  • Redesigned app drawer: A search bar is added at the top, where you can quickly find an app.

  • Now on Tap: Based on what you are doing, related information will come up at the top if you activate the feature.

  • Android Pay: You can make purchases at participating stores using your phone's NFC chip.

  • Doze: When turning on the Doze mode, the phone uses less power than the current standby mode.

  • USB Type-C Supported: Android 6.0 supports USB Type-C cable, which makes it faster to charge a phone.

If you find the new features attractive, you should upgrade your Android phone to the new version if it is available for your phone.
