I received my Galaxy S6 Edge+ yesterday. If you have questions, ask away! I'll be posting a review later (or perhaps tomorrow), too.

How is the RSRP levels compared to the iPhone 6?

Unfortunately, that's the one question I cannot answer as I no longer have an iPhone on Sprint. Not sure how to measure this on an Android device.

 

Having said that, sitting in my office where my HTC One M9 with Sprint got a weak signal at best (and pulled 6 Mbps down at most), the GS6E+ is pulling downloads of 20+ Mbps. Haven't done much testing yet, though.

 

I've had this thing activated for about 18 hours. Would not activate when I received it, and spent 3 hours on the phone with Sprint trying to get it done. They finally concluded it could not be done until Friday, the official release date. I drove to my favorite Sprint store in Short Pump and Noley got it activated within 5 minutes. :)

Whoever moved my post is in total error - they moved it to a thread regarding the Galaxy S6 Edge - my post is in regards to the S6 Edge PLUS. Different devices.

That is quite a bit of difference if it's coming from the same location. Did you have signal check installed on your phone on your m9 before?

Had a derpy moment yesterday. Have always used SignalCheck Pro, lol. RSRP now holding pretty steady in my office around -108 dBm (15 asu). Don't remember what it was on the One M9. But in general, this phone is holding signal much better than the M9, which is a real shame. 

 

It was the iPhone on which I don't know how to measure RSRP.

No ac?

 

No.  AC is unavailable.  He is still driving the white Ford Bronco ahead of the police chase.

This is a really superficial question, but is this phone available in Titanium Silver from Sprint like the photo you showed, or only the fake 80's rapper 10K Gold Platinum color? As you can see I love this phone, but I want it in Silver!

None of the US carriers are offering that color. That's a decision that lies with Samsung.

Well, I'm going to have to hold off on a purchase, because I believe they will eventually offer it sooner or later.

OK, I lied! I couldn't hold off any longer, so I got the gold platinum color. When I was in best buy, I could have sworn the phone on display was the titanium silver, but it wasn't. So, I guess the color wasn't so bad after all.

This is not a phone, it's jewelry you can talk and surf the Web on! Never have I seen a phone so attractive to me since the LG G Flex. The 4 gig of ram makes my laptop nearly obsolete. Call quality is very good, with plenty of volume. I pulled 60+ MB/sec down on band 41, but I'm not sure if that was carrier aggregated or not.

No ac?

I saw ac band WiFi on Samsung's website, but I don't have an ac router to test it with.

So I took a screen capture of my data screen and this is what I found.

Carrier aggregation is already enabled and that's great! I also saw that LTE priorities are bands 25,26 and 41 respectively. I don't know if this is good or bad, as I like 26 for in building coverage, but like 41 for the CA.

This doesn't matter. Its not really prioritizing any of these bands the network decides not the phone. Only if you disable bands on the phone can you trick the network into getting on the band you want. Well except band 25.

So it seems like there are just a few people on the forum with this phone. Do people not like the phone for some reason?

I know I was strongly considering the Nexus 6P for a time, but I just couldn't get over that hideous camera bar on the back!

    • I posted the below on the essential subreddit.  Wonder if others on sprint have the same issue?   "It is well noted that the essential has reception / radio problems but today, when I roamed on to US Cellular, it completely abandoned 1x and connected to LTE only. Which is fine when connected to Sprint because the phone can pass text messages over LTE. However, while roaming, the phone would not send or receive text messages and could not make or receive calls because it was latched to USCC LTE and needs a 1x connection to do this. My 5X (and I assume every other phone), when it connected to USCC LTE, would somehow get notification of a text or call and idle back over to 1x to take care of things and then dump the 1x connection until needed again (signal check shows all of this happening). Same deal when I would try to send a text as well. Seems the essential is dead in the water under these conditions and just can not bring it self to go to 1x when needed while roaming, at least on USCC. I do not have other roaming carriers up here to test with. I am sure we do not need to go into the problems with being completely unable to make a phone call in the very large areas that Sprint uses USCC to roam on. I can accept if it was just the area I was in. So in that case, any other Sprint users roamed on USCC LTE without any voice or text problems recently? I am on Oreo Beta for what its worth."
    • Twitter might give you better results. 
    • Essential's reception to the reception issues was not very receptive because their reception at the time was poor and they did not receive full receipt of the reception issues. AJ
