    With a tiny sample size of just 9 hours, the battery seems to be holding up nicely.

    Better than Lollipop for my phone.

    Ever since updating my wifi connection is extremely slow!! I'm not sure how to fix it. I have done the "forget network" I've rebooted and restarted nothing is working.

    What are the changes so far? Are they big changes or minimal?

    Perfect so far!

    They added "on tap" for Google Now. If you are on any screen and hold the home key it will give you cool information about what's on that screen. For example if you are texting someone and they mention a restaurant, it will find in on the page and give you reviews and such.

    Has anyone found anything else?

    Still trying to figure out how the "on tap" works.

    I downloaded it around 3pm today. So far it makes the experience much smoother in my opinion.

    Having an issue with my lock screen when restarting with fingerprint not working right away. And ontap is pretty neat but I doubt I'll use it much. The WiFi calling will be cool

    Has anyone else noticed they fixed the WiFi bug? I noticed now when I have WiFi on, my network data isn't running at the same time. Only WiFi is being used for data instead of both at once. I attached a screenshot of how it used to be (black screen) and how it is now

    just hold the home button and it will "read" what ever is on the screen. then you can swipe up and it gives you more. HOlding the home button doesnt go to google now, you have to tap the G at the bottom after tap and hold.

    Weather seems to be missing from my lock screen. Anyone else have this problem?
    Sorry about the earlier response...just got home and updated and it looks like they removed the option for weather on the lockscreen

    I thought they were supposed to remove the amazon apps.

    I think they just removed the amazon suite. I noticed mine is gone but apps will remain.

    Is that why my phone radio is using much less battery now or is that something else?

    Been having some problems with screen usage in the battery section that we're troubleshooting.

    The screen usage jumped to 60% from 12% in Lollipop after the update. Seems like everything else was somewhat OK. Did a fast charge and for a long time the screen usage was 100%. In addition, the auto feature on the display brightness was and still is all haywire. The manual setting OK. Usage now is 51% screen, 31% phone. Both very high!

    On two occasions today, did a clear cache partition. Seems like Marshmallow had the same or similar problems to some Nexus models a few months ago on the forums.

    Spoke to VZ Tech, they wanted me to monitor the battery and display over the weekend. One Tech wanted me to do a full factory reset, I said... NO!

    ANYWAY... was hoping for a clear update but some display and battery issues might need some time to 'condition' and hopefully go to 'normal'.

    If not, will talk to supervisor or AD next week. I run a clean and well managed phone. No esoteric apps. No FB, No Instagram, No Twitter, no social apps. Mostly business with apps I've used with no problems for years... until Marshmallow.

    My screen is also above 50%, but other things have went down quite a bit so I don't know if the screen is using more power or just a higher percentage because other things are using less. I'm at over 4 hours sot with 20% battery remaining, so about the same as before the update. I'll have a better idea tomorrow.

    Hmmmm. Oddest thing. When I restarted the phone, the problem came back. But when I turned off the phone and then turned it back on myself (instead of restarting), the WiFi and mobile network are working separately again

    Just updated to 6.0, but I noticed now that I have to "swipe screen to unlock" to get to the "enter pin" screen. How do I disable the "swipe screen to unlock" screen and go straight to the "enter pin" screen?

    I can add that my battery did much better overnight. Normally I lose about 15 to 20% overnight. Last night I lost 5%.

    So far I have been very impressed with this update. I'm not sure I understand how some people don't notice anything different. This update definitely polished up the TouchWiz experience.

    I have weather on my lock screen through notifications. It gives me the current weather or I can update it by tapping the update icon. Works great!
