It seems to be Samsung is not going to provide official Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Galaxy S4. That might seem unfair to some, particularly those who own S4 and who had gone out of their way to buy it ASAP when it first came out. However, in this guide, I am going to teach you how to update your Galaxy S4 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in easy steps.

How to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow on a Samsung Galaxy S4

If mid-range smartphone like Samsung Galaxy J5 can get Marshmallow why not a flagship device like Galaxy S4 get the same update.

Note: UptoAndroid will not be held responsible for any damage to the device during the process. Proceed at your own risk.

The Galaxy S4 is already three years old that means its hardware and software are no longer modern enough to support the latest features of Android 6.0, so Samsung got the point for not updating its software.
