Does anyone know if the S6 will have just one model with all bands or will each carrier have their own variant?

Different models for each carrier, both S6 and S6 Edge.

Ok thanks. I wondered if it was going to be like the iPhone release where sprint had their own due to the extra band and the other 3 had the same model.

4/10. I'm almost wanting to see what the G4 has in stock but the S6 is very, very tempting.

Cool. If the battery and RF capabilities aren't terrible, the s6 will probably be in my hands. Need some folks here to put it through the gambit for a week or so first.

I'm waiting for the G4 announcement and also see if how the S6 sport pans out. Then I'll make a decision.

If the G4 had the battery anywhere close to the G2, then I'll definitely grab it.  The LG announcements are usually around May aren't they?

I hope Samsung will use less signal bars or change their algorithm on sprint variants. I hate seeing the teeny tiny bar with - 100 dbm and pulling 40mb/s. That should be full bars to me.

Hell, I already have a spigen case for the s6 edge sitting on my desk.  I am getting it no matter what, I just hope the radio performance turns out to be decent in real world use.

I think Sprint would rather under promise than over promise. For example, you'd see people complaining about being connected to a site with 5 bars that's congested and generalize Sprint for being slow. Instead, now people see 1 bar and is typically impressed with the speeds or don't expect it to be fast. I do agree though, I prefer it to be more than 1 bar in instances of -100+dBm.

I'm going to take a chance with Samsung but I'm going to get the regular s6. I'm really impressed with the look of it and the little changes with touchwiz. I went to sprint and they told me the regular 32gb will be around $700. I'm going to give up my regular iPhone 6 and let that chew up the majority of the cost of the phone. I've never been this excited for a phone before besides the iPhone 4s when it first came to sprint.

So this is an interesting offer.  

 

http://newsroom.sprint.com/news-releases/free-samsung-galaxy-s-6-only-from-sprint.htm?ECID=SM:TW:E:Samsung:032615

 

From reading it I guess it's only going to be offered for that specific plan.  But to get the phone for "free" is interesting. 

 

Update: Interesting.  I think this was released early.  When you type in the web address on the press release it just redirects to the pre-registration page for the S6.

 

I attached the image in case it disappears.

I wonder if we'll see a return of the Rewards lease for old timey customers like me.  I got my whole family hooked up with the $5 lease program for the S5....but I was holding out for better as I already have the S5 :) 

 

yearly upgrades though, this free data roaming, though......those are interesting things.

Black, white and gold?  Damn, I really wanted them to have it in that emerald green or even blue.  I have a feeling the s6 will be $249.99 for the base  32gb model with the s6 edge coming in at $349.99

I was definitely looking forward to the green one, myself.  I figured it'd be unavailable on the carriers.  :td:

Anandtech published their preview, although it sadly doesn't mention anything about the modem.

looking forward to their final review, and then most importantly some user reviews from s4gru on RF performance.

 

I'm assuming with the first review dropping, we should see more in the next few days.

Has anyone come across the full retail price of the S6? Verizon just released their prices and the 32gb s6 is starting at $599.

    • 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..
