And it should smell sweet.

I never trust how they feel, but rather how they smell. A ripe mango should smell sweet or sometimes almost floral, but very very fragrant.

Leave it on the counter for another day if unsure -- there's nothing more sad than un underripe mango (unless it's being purposely used green for chutney, which is another story).
