I would go to Android Central for the answer. Go to the forums and find the one for your phone. And although 6.0 is already rolling out, it does take some time for Verizon to clear it for their phones. I have a Nexus 6 and don't expect to get the 6.0 update for a few months because we still have to for Verizon to clear it.
That's the point of the nexus program, updates SHOULD NOT be Verizon dependant... Give us the pure android program we paid dearly for, get your fingers (and bloatware) out of our phone
Look at his device. It isn't on ANY Samsung phone that matter and he is already asking when. Nexus devices has an unfair advantage as the code was specifically made for their devices first. Just because the source code was released doesn't mean it is "out" Aside from the PDK OEM didn't see any real code until a couple days ago. Realistically people should start asking God the question when it is coming out no earlier than 2 months from now.
Google says on their website that carriers should be sending it out this week, not an unfair advantage, it's not my fault he didn't opt for the pure android experience and now has to wait while bloatware is added... And please keep your god to yourself... I frankly want what I paid for.
My Nexus 6 came without bloatware, which made me happy. As far as the OTA update, I'll get it when it comes. I'm in no rush. The carriers need to make sure it will work with their system...or so they say. And like you, I got the Nexus for speedier updates, although I knew Verizon would slow things down a bit.
Again... read the device in question. This is asking about the Note5. Also the Nexus was used to develop Android. Of course they'd get the update first. That's why it is an unfair advantage.
Let's say we both had to make a car. Let's say I got the blueprints months before you do, and I got to use it and you couldn't do anything until I am finished using them. Do you consider that an unfair advantage? Just some food for thought.
