Among other things the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow offers a much fully improved UI. The Doze power management, a redesigned folder and icons, and additional improvements to Apps edge panel are just the features that are quite astonishing.  Along with some performance optimizations, Samsung has also included the latest security patches in the update.

The update weighs at approximately around 1250 MB to download via Over-The-Air. Again the released are still in phases and it may takes some several days before it reaches to all devices, so better check the update manually by going to Settings > About device > Software Update > Check for updates, if you haven’t prompted the availability of  the update yet. You must also ensure that your phone has not been rooted nor modified or otherwise the update may fail and you may not get the update.
