Lenovo K3 Note

Lenovo users can finally feel happy because the all new Marshmallow software update for the K3 Note Smartphone is finally available to all the users here in India. The software update is available Over-the-Air (OTA) to the users, who can directly receive a notification for the same if they have had enabled the Automatic Updates option.

The update is sized 1657 MB that is pretty large when compared to the similar updated we had seen yesterday for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Smartphone. We have received a confirmed notification regarding this software update through our follower Pankaj Chaudhary, who had sent the screenshot regarding the “System Update” on his Smartphone.

In order to check if you have not received the notification, you need to head over to the Settings > About > Software Update section and click on “Check Updates” to manually seek for the same. The package is pretty large and the quick change log mentions that if you have had stored your applications earlier on the SD card, they would get erased and it is important to back up all the data on the SD card before proceeding with this update. We also hope that this update would fix few of the K3 Note Problems & issues we had mentioned long back.

Obviously you will have to wait for a very long period since the package itself is sized 1657 MB, following up with a good amount of time to install the same. If you have received this update, let us know in the comments section below & we would like to know your location and experience after installing the same.

    Marshmallow update saved money! I was about to trade in this phone for a redmi note 3 32 GB but now I will keep it for another few months. Earlier 5.0 software was the buggiest one. Phone needs several restarts, applications hanged a lot, no battery saver. All issues are sorted now. Looks like the device is breathing properly. OS occupied 4.81 GB out of 16 gigs
