Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge User Thread

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, are you now able to use your fingerprint to authorize purchases in the Google Play Store?  I'd assume yes. 

 

I'd ask my wife, but she doesn't have her fingerprint enabled on her S6 despite my numerous suggestions it's the fastest way to unlock the phone.

I see the option in there for it and I have it checked.  But I haven't purchased (nor do I plan to) anything to test it out.

It also looks like they removed the wifi "connection optimizer" functionality.

You guys aren't seeing this behavior are you?

That's for Verizon's Note5 update, and I checked my wife's Sprint S6 updated phone, I don't think she's seeing it the best I could tell.

I have the update on my GS6.  The battery seems to be draining at about the same rate or maybe a LITTLE faster.

 

I'm not having any lag issues though.

I'm liking the update so far. It's been very smooth. Liking the app permission system.

Well, for the first time in my life I have broken a phone. Slipped out of my hand and landed on the edge. Not only did the screen crack, but the LCD is apparently completely busted.

 

I deeply regret getting the edge. The gimmick was useless and it resulted in a drop being fatal to the phone rather than being an inconvenience.

 

Back to my single band S4 for now.

Should have gotten the speck candy shell case. I swear by them.

Are you in the right thread? Didn't you have a Galaxy S4 before then buy a GS7E?

 

This is the GS6E thread.

Yes, but why do you need the serial number? Depending on what you are trying to do more often they want the IMEI or ESN?

Does anyone know where I can find bluetooth drivers for the GS6 with Android 6?  When I try to connect my phone to my PC now, it doesn't work.  And I can see 2 bluetooth devices in device manager that need drivers.  I'm assuming that's because the phone is using Android 6 now.  (It used to work with Android 5).  I'm on Windows 7 (64-bit).

 

Thanks.

I have a Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge that I use every now and then. I'm an iPhone user but like a taste of Android every now and then. I have been using the phone on my T-Mobile line that I just switched over to cricket. It has always been fine in T-Mobile but when switching to Cricket I knew it wouldn't support B17 LTE per the documentation I saw. The second I popped my Cricket Sim in Band 17 LTE came right on. How is this possible??

That's interesting. I'm using my DSU GS6E on AT&T and I don't get band 17 LTE.

I was shocked myself. I only used Band 4 on T-Mobile so no problem at all but I was expecting only HSPA when I switched to Cricket but to my surprise B17 works :)

Just remember to clear you cache and cache partition after all updates.  To avoid and/or rule out (not saying you will not have any issues after updates) any issues with that.  :-)

 

At least, that's what I do after every update, big or small.

Instructions on how to?

    • Another beta update to SignalCheck Pro is rolling out! Version 4.614b will appear on Google Play sometime over the next several hours. More 5G improvements, the accent color should be fixed, and several Samsung shortcut menus were added. Samsung users, please try all of the new shortcuts and let me know which ones are useful and what they lead to. Thank you!
    • No, unfortunately I haven't seen any useful 5G info from your phone (or anyone else's LG) yet. If you get a software update and happen to find 5G before they shut it down, please try reporting again! The accent color is still in its infancy and only appears on LTE for now. I've had it on my version of SCP for several weeks, initially I didn't think anyone else would like it. Figured I'd offer it up and see what the feedback was.
    • I accidentally broke the Samsung menus when I compiled the latest release; it will be resolved in next update.   Thanks, I'll look into that.. it's all a work in progress, glad we are making some headway!   The current display format is temporary, it is just to get the data displaying reliably.. once that happens, it will get its own "block" like the connection other technologies have.
    • I forgot to post this this morning. Seems that Sprint will offer the V60. My buddy at Sprint HQ says more will be said Monday. Lets see if this pans out.   TS out
    • Another suggestion, can you place the 5G info above the neighbor cell list? In dense urban areas with 5x CA there will easily be enough neighbor cells to push the 5G info off the screen. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
