From plugging it in a couple times now I do not like the feel of the micro USB.  It has to be plugged in at just the right angle for me.  Had already been looking into a wireless charging pad and will get one now for sure.  I hate to drop $60 on the Samsung version.  Anyone have any luck with aftermarket varieties?

Choetech stadium Qi 3 coil wireless charger pad. I've bought 5 of them. They work great, large sweet spot, grippy surface. About 25 bucks on Amazon -> http://goo.gl/AwrQGf

So far my edge rf performance sux compared to my Nexus 6. I'm holding a strong b26 signal with the nexus 6 and the edge drops it and goes back to 3g.

 

 

This really blows.  Any further observations?

I'm still waiting on Best Buy to release the 128 gig S6 for pre-order. It kinda sucks it looks like I'm going to miss the wireless charger promo.

The sprint website is now saying 2 to 5 business days on the 64gb gold, not sure if I should believe that or not though.

I called & talked to the warehouse order support team and he said the 64GB Gold Platinum has not arrived at the warehouse from Samsung, with no emails or comments about arrival date. ????

I wish Sprint was more transparent & forthcoming with the backorder status. On the Verizon site, their 64GB Edge Gold is stated to ship out on 5/1/15.

Can someone explain this to me please. I like my S6 but ive noticed that with my iphone when it comes to loading video from youtube or doing anything data related that it dances circles around my S6. The S6 takes longer to load but also it constantly has only one bar of service whereas my iphone has 2-3. I don't know how to check to see which band I'm on with the S6. Also is this made by design with Samsung products to show low bars? My neatest tower is almost 2 miles away from me.

Signalcheck Pro on your S6 will tell you your true signal. Sprint/Samsung uses RSSI instead of RSRP for signal. Signalcheck is more accurate.

 

Go into your media menu and zero out the Sprint addressing proxies. You'll have to Google instructions because I'm out a and can't get to the instructions now.

Ok thank you. It shows I'm connected to clear 41 with -100. My iphone shows -102 with similar data speeds of 30mbps. But I will dig deeper though.

The one bar thing has been an issue with several Samsung phones on Sprint for awhile, fortunately it's only visual with -100 and lower signal showing as one bar on these phones where on most others -100 is around 3 bars. So the signal isn't actually any worse in that situation but unfortunately to most people at a glance it makes the signal look worse.

    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
    • I would say it is as "safe" as any typical beta release at this point. There are some things I am still ironing out, but nothing that severely hinders normal usage of the app.
    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
