I'm wondering if the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 will receive the Marshmallow update, if it doesn't, I'm probably gonna go for a different phone option. Please let me know if you know it will or if it is in the making.

An upgrade to 5.1 would be nice at least? no update before I get this phone in December? Vodafone is losing a customer of 3 years

It doesnt really help though does it. There is never a firm answer just a vauge blah blah. Check out XDA there are some ports going on over there. The problem we face is the locked bootloader, hopefully ZTE will unlock it so we can also update out phones as well. ( Baisically the SU 6 is a ZTE Blade 6 plus )

Vodafone need to do something as 5.0.2 is a shambles,not being able to turn of miracast is a nightmare ! Sky go etc will not work due to miracast being constantly on. Don't care if it's 5.1 or marshmallow but an update is needed now. The phone is sold as having 5.1 which is obviously deception.

As it the VSU 6 is basically a ZTE Blade 6 plus ( only tweaked in our favour ) then there is a chance ZTE might release an update we can use. I know people over at XDA are working on ports and having a little success.

ZTE doesn't always bother to update its phones, so if you have one you may have to make do without Android Marshmallow, though the newer and higher profile it is the better your chances of getting the upcoming Android release.
