It is almost time to get Android Marshmallow, and in the time of Android Marshmallow, getting Android Lollipop might seem like buying a Galaxy S3 when the Galaxy S6 is already there. Though there are a lot of ways to bring the taste of Android Marshmallow on the Galaxy Note 4, However, that again causes a lot of problems and not many people prefer rooting and flashing custom ROMs.
The software version of the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for the Verizon Galaxy Note 4 is LMY47X.N910VVRU2BOK3. Along with major bugfixes, device optimizations and security patches ; the update brings in

Before you download the update:
- Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network, or make sure that you have a strong network connection.
- Make sure that the battery is fully charged.
Your Galaxy Note 4 will show a notification in the status bar when it receives the update from Verizon. If it hasn’t shown up yet you could check for the update manually by going in Settings -> About device -> Software update. The phone can also be updated using Verizon’s update tool on your Mac or PC.
Verizon doesn’t mention much about the changes in the new update, but all the standard Lollipop changes in 5.1.1 are expected on it and it should bring about a lot of stability fixes to the core system. There is no news at present of Android Marshmallow(6.0) hitting the Galaxy Note 4.
