    For everyone who got the update, give us your thoughts!
    It's too early. Besides I did full wipe after installing so now phone works very smoothly. I didn't noticed any bugs for now. Love the SD card as an internal storage, now I have 73GB free space available

    How do you set the sd card as internal storage?

    After a couple of hours..... Can't tell much difference.

    Boot time seems to be a little longer, too early to say about battery. But after installing the update on battery power, and then installing like 12 Play Store updates.... I'm at 74% after 8hrs on battery power.

    I've had to tweak a few permission settings, but all seems to be working.

    Settings > Storage & USB > Select SD Card > Select three dots (settings) > Choose Format as Internal


    But I'd read up on it first..... Unless you have a really fast card, not sure how it would affect performance.

    Seeing that this update is out for everyone now I won't have any fear of any soak test repercussions. I had previously deleted some of my posts here. I've had the update for several days now. A lot of changes to app permissions is nice. It's nice to have these features but I doubt I'll use them. Bummer no wifi calling YET. Easier access to volume controls is a major plus for me. As far as battery, I'm not seeing any better numbers at all. Originally I got excited cuz I took my phone off the charger at 630 and at 910 I was still at 100%. Android system has crashed a few times but I didn't notice any issues otherwise. Phone runs very smooth but it did before 6.0. I initially had some wifi connection issues but they resolved themselves. As far as speed throughout, feels about the same. I think it's safe for all to download the update at this point. It's been since Saturday for me and I'm happy with it overall. Also for those using Nova Launcher as I am it works just as good as before.

    Thanks for providing your thoughts. Very disappointing to hear that battery life has not improved. I was hoping a software update would help optimize, but I guess this is not the case. It's too bad because other than battery life, this phone is incredible.

    I've just been informed that the first update is available, taking the dive now. If it matters, I'm in North Texas (DFW), for those who are trying to track where the releases are happening...

    I had a 128 gb card in mine, class 10, not sure uhs #, phone recognized it as a Lexar, it was a pny, and phone couldn't find it after a couple of hours, wait before copying stuff over to it unless you want to risk losing it. Also, because card was internal, once it couldn't see it phone said I had no room to take pictures, had to forget the card, pull it and reformat on computer, then use as portable storage.

    Bloat management is better. As far as I can tell, DT ignite is gone.

    Before when you disabled bloat, the app data remained. Well now they are gone save about 4kb on some, zero on the rest.

    So far I'm seeing a lot better stand by times. Even when my phone was in my pocket for about 3 hours I only lost 3% even in decently good service area so I'm happy with that so far. Overall look and feel aren't really much different so far which I like.

    That's an insanely long read. My advice, spend some money on a reliable sdcard. Sandisk extreme plus 32gb is what I'm using.

    The second update file is a little over a gig to download and Verizon let's that count towards your data. I'm guessing to they don't hear people all the time complaining about going over their data due to updates they won't let you download large update files at all anymore over their network.
