There are many people who own devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 who don’t care about what version of Android they have on their device. Some do like to keep up to date with the latest version and many don’t even know what version their handset is running on.
Some fanatics do talk about their Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Android version it has and many waited patiently for the arrival of Android Lollipop 5.1.1, which other devices such as the LG G4 has had for what seems to be forever.
Samsung offers the Good Lock app and no longer works with Google and the Google Play Edition. The GPE used to bring close to stock Android to the tablet and so there are many owners who are frustrated that Samsung don’t offer stock Android anymore.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow did seem to take forever to reach the Samsung Galaxy S6. But Samsung don’t believe that enough people want pure Android and so it isn’t profitable for them to make it.
The Google Play Edition hasn’t been around for two years and it seems that not that many people were buying it. If you go with pure Android you do typically have to forget about support and this is something that hasn’t done too well for Sony.
