The latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system accepts fingertip scans as a form of payment via Google Play. While other smartphones can use fingertip scanning to unlock screens, this latest update uses the fingerprint application's programming interface as a monetary access point.

In addition, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow model gives users the ability to pop and slide out apps and menus with slick smooth-moving trays. For those who are constantly using their mobile devices, the Android system's new battery consumption is measured in milliampere hours. This enables users to keep better track of their consumption, even though the battery has a longer overall lifespan in updated phones.

Even the fluidity of the new system's color scheme enhances its overall aesthetic appeal. This polished operating system combines style and tech-savvy features to create a highly desirable piece of software -- one that will appeal to tech-focused millennials and urban professionals.
