Samsung Galaxy S6 Preview Thread (was "Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pre-order page up.")

Recommended Posts

Seems that Sprint has followed AT&T and T-Mobile in creating a pre-order page for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

 

See link.

Surprised that no one has mentioned their views on the new S6 and S6 Edge that were unveiled today at MWC Barcelona.

 

Guess I'll start.

I like everything about the new devices except that

1-There is no sd card slot. 

2-The headphone jack is on the bottom

3-Non-Removable battery (which helps when one needs to pull the battery)

4-Glass back. 

 

I have a feeling that the Note Series will follow the same path.

I've been a loyal LG fan for a few years. But, I gotta say the S6 edge would look great in my hands

Me too. Hopefully it won't be like the S4 was and miss out on the latest and greatest Sprint network technology until 6 months later.

Well, the Note Edge has 2 carrier CA on Band 41, so the S6 & S6 Edge should have that as a minimum.

The S6 uses a processor that isn't found in any other phone.. Their own Exynos. So who knows what it will support.

The Verizon G920V, which is one of the 2, supports CA. My guess is the US variants are getting Snapdragons again.

It'll be nice if I'm wrong on that.

Still don't like the look of touchwiz but I am definitely feeling the s6 edge no doubt so with that I will probably be getting one.  It looks too cool to not own even with horrible touchwiz.  I just hope the battery life is good and the camera is good and I hope they don't ask too much of a premium.  At the most I am willing to spend an additional premium fee of $150, anything more and I don't think I will pull the trigger.

Do you have an upgrade available? Best buy always has great offers for the Samsung devices.

Me too. I think I'll hold out for the s6, too. Samsung has always had great radios and battery with their screen tech.

My wife will likely end up with this. She can seriously destroy a phone (went through 4 HTC's in a year) so I hope spigen or otterbox can make a good case. I'd like for her to get the edge version but she's not sure it will hold up to her purse and two toddlers.

Those 4 HTC's were destroyed in every which way too...water damage, thrown from top of stairs, dropped/thrown on the ground. Now she has had an S3 with an otterbox case for 2 years! I'm seriously proud.

She should really be more careful with her phones.  :blink:

I was expecting an S6 announcement soon and was ready to purchase, yet the industry continues to disappoint me.

What didn't you like?  The removeable battery/no sd card?

I am completely in agreement with you - seems the only options for next gen with a possible removeable battery will be the G4, but that comes out in July or so.  I was really hyped for the HTC One M9 but it's not much different from my M8 but Samsung seems ot have won me over because back cover/sd slot is not a deal breaker for me.  But I do understand your disappointment.

True, the battery has less capacity, but the screen technology and chipset power consumption has been vastly improved.  I wouldn't be surprised if the GS6 has better battery than the GS5.

They said so as much in the event that it has a longer battery life. But I guess real world testing will determine if that is true or not.

Let's see when these phones reach the FCC, and if it will support 2 or 3 sprint carrier aggregations. I am sure it will support two, but not out the box(firmware)

    • what sort of speeds (actual numbers) are we talking here?
    • Long time lurker here, long time SCP user.  FYI...  I'm the guy in the bar that had SC on his phone!  LOL First, I just wanted to thank you for this awesome tool.   Second, I do have an occasional freezing of the app on my Galaxy S20 Ultra.  It's usually when switching back and forth between the engineering screen to check CA, SCP, and the Speedtest app, to make sure it's still running.  I have to go in and force close it to get it to run again. Now for a question: how accurate is the distance from the tower in SCP?  I've had a few times that I can't figure out where it's picking up a tower, and now that I think about it, it could be a SC.  Since the S20 U is now on T-Mobile, there are no site notes for the towers, and I'm trying to figure out where they are!
    • So, I'm late to the party here.  Columbus, Ohio market.  I've had my S20 Ultra since a few days after launch (late pre-order) so I've been through the stuff mentioned through this thread.  My issue is 5G.  Before 5G was turned on, my speeds on T-Mobile were great!  Maybe a bit slower than Sprint in a speedtest, but latency was better, and it "felt" faster.  Then 5G was turned on, and I found out to check in the *#0011# service mode screen to see if n71 was working.  It was, I was happy.  Within a couple days, that totally changed.  It seemed that I rarely got n71, and data was SLOW, maybe 1/3 of the speed as before 5G was turned on.  When I do see n71, speeds are really good. For instance, 2 days ago, it was hitting n71 without active data transferring.  Then yesterday and today, not even a blip of n71 when actively transferring.  I found that switching the network mode to LTE/CDMA got my speeds back to good.  It seems that I must get a profile update push when not looking and it turns 5G back on, or if I have to restart and forget to reset it.   Is anyone else seeing this behavior?  
    • Just got off the phone with a Sprint Business rep. According to him the cell site nearest me is now running n41. Which explains why my LTE-41 speeds are a fraction of what they were a few months back. He mentioned a pretty awesome deal on an S20 if I sign a contract, with a $10 price increase per month in exchange for going from 3 GB of hotspot to 50 GB (which I've wanted anyway), so chances are good I'll bump up to the S20. Apparently it's still a Business Fusion plan so I don't have to pay $$$ extra per month for the phone either. Anyone heard of a $55/mo (or $75/mo) Business Fusion plan with 50GB of hotspot? Any video/VPN throttling to speak of there?
