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.

Not necessarily.

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)

    • I definitely don't need more coverage... just the damn VoLTE activated so I can get calls and MMS at the same damn time. Like I said, it isn't a huge deal, just annoying that this is even a problem in the first place. They told me AR4 are out of stock and they have no idea when they'll be back, nor can they put me in touch with someone that knows. They said they just have to keep checking and see if it comes back in stock. Once again, I said that is nonsense, but what can I really do about it. For right now, the Pebble boosting the LTE, and using wifi calling, is working fine for my needs. Much better than the AR2.5 I was using which didn't work at all.
    • Yeah VoLTE took forever on Airave 4s, but it's definitely working now. Supposedly it was enabled months ago, but not necessarily for existing devices (only new ones). I had to factory reset mine to get it back in the queue, but after 2.5 weeks it got it. My Magic Box with wired backhaul, on the other hand, got it only 3 days after a factory reset. It seems that a lot of femtos setup before VoLTE launched never got put back in the queue (particularly femtos using WiFi or Ethernet backhaul), hence the necessary factory reset. I'm not sure if an Airave 4 would offer substantial coverage improvement over the Pebble, other than having CDMA as a fallback. If you need to cover a larger area, you can use both actually. They should handoff to one another with VoLTE, just keep them sufficiently far apart to minimize interference. And you'll probably have to tell Sprint it's for use at a different address, but they won't actually check where it's deployed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Do it quickly.  My impression is T-Mobile really wants to move people to their network ASAP, even if it causes lots of pain. August 1 is rumored to be the end of Sprint retail.
    • I'm trying to switch over to the Airave 4 now that the've enable VoLTE on them. That should fix this problem. The only reason I got the Pebble over the AR4 is because VoLTE wasn't enable on it yet.
    • My router typically only gets rebooted for firmware updates or major functionality changes that I have implemented. Otherwise stays up for years.  Last time it was down is when Hurricane Ike remnants hit Ohio in 2008 and caused week long power outages, which killed local internet in a few days (I have two ISPs, UPSes, generator).  ISP's battery backups and generator use had improved considerably since that time. Making changes appears to be the greatest reason for router instability. So put internet connections on a UPS,  reboot after major changes, and otherwise enjoy.
