Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge User Thread

Recommended Posts

Why not go for the S7? Sure it's more out of pocket today, but the addition of WATERPROOFING is good for any mom. Plus latest is always the best bet especially since the S7 is 8 months old and that S6 is 1 yr 8 mos old.  Don't you love your mom???  Don't old tech her. 

 

But ANY phone will be better than that S4T.  Samsung never solved that memory leak issue on the S4 devices.  They should have never existed, IMO.  Worst phone they've made.  On my wife's S6, she complains about the battery life, but quick charging helps that quite a bit.  Other than that, a very solid phone still. 

 

 

It does but it was still a hassle for me. And the battery life anxiety.

 

I second the call for Galaxy S7 at least. Water resistance, better camera, and microSD support is great. I sold mine not too long ago.

We are looking at a two year subsidy upgrade for both her and my Dad.  They won't let me buy them phones and they don't have $400 to shell out for phones.  Neither are power users, just Facebook, pictures, games, etc.  I know the S6 is a generation old, but at $49.99 for a 64gb phone, it will be more than enough space for their use.  I'd be shocked if it didn't get a 7.0 or 7.1 upgrade.

I wouldn't be shocked at all if they DIDN'T get 7.0 or 7.1.  I'm not expecting it.  But I hope I'm pleasantly surprised.

T-Mobile lists the S6 as manufacturer development for Nougat on the S6

Well, the plot has thickened...

 

Talked with chat and other methods trying to get the S6 at the 49.99 price point last week to no avail.  Checked again this morning and its still on the website, but for $1.00 now?!?!  Tried to order again and it still wouldn't let me.

 

Was scrolling through the other Android devices and saw the LG G5 was down to $1 with a contract upgrade.  Kept scrolling and noticed a 128GB S6 that was $1 on contract upgrade.  Low and behold, that thing was available and got an order placed!

 

Woot!

 

Edit in: drat, tried to go back yesterday afternoon and get one for my Dad (didn't order in the AM as he has talked about switching providers, wanted to make sure he was good with a 2yr agreement) and both black and white are out of stock.

Another update out today.  It looks like just the Sept Google security update.

What was that update 2 days ago? Obviously not any 7.X update. I imagine security related?

Yes, my wife just got it pushed today. I looked it up on Sprint's website. It's just a security update.

There's a new update out (G920PVPU4CPL3).  In the description on the phone, it says something about "battery usage optimization", along with the usually security updates.

Another security update was released.  It's not on the Sprint support site but my phone just installed it.  It has the Feb 1, 2017 security updates.

Ah, ok. The article I posted must have been a late article talking about the delay from Feb.

It will still probably be a little while until Sprint releases it, but hopefully by the end of the month. My wife has a GS6.

After installing the Nougat update, is anybody having the issue of the phone not staying on wifi while the screen is off?  I have already checked the setting where for staying on wifi while sleep, but that setting is set to have it stay on.

Did this problem ever get resolved?

No, it did not.  This still happens.

    • 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
