    I just DLed and installed it over these last few hours. Seems to be working pretty nicely so far but hopefully I'll get a better picture during the day when I use it like I normally would.

    It's pretty finicky in terms of swiping app windows left or right from the multitasking switch screen. I'm not sure why. Sometimes I have to swipe left or right multiple times to get it to go away. Not quite sure why.

    Also it looks like you need to put in the password each time you restart even if you have a fingerprint setup. Makes no sense to me since the fingerprint is most secure. Hopefully we can figure out a way to get around that.

    Also auto-brightness is a bit weird too. I have it set the way I did (with auto checked but the bar towards the lower end) but right now in my bedroom with the lights off the screen is virtually unreadable with the same settings I always had. I can always brighten the bar of course but I don't want it to be a battery detriment.

    Other than that it seems pretty sweet.

    Got it this morning. I've been lucky, I've been in the first wave for updates for the past few years. This update, so far, had been great. Much smoother scrolling, snappy transitions. Waiting to see about battery life, but I'm liking the new granular settings and Google on Tap. So far, great update!

    It's embedded, you don't have to do anything, it's automatic. It activates when your phone sits idle, not while it's charging, but when it's unplugged and lying still, like on a table.

    Interesting. I found the same thing on the S7 Edge (T-Mobile). I suspect it's a Samsung Marshmallow issue. It has gotten a lot better over time for what it's worth.

    Also, requiring a pin after reboot is actually by design in Marshmallow. It's there in the Nexus 6P too. Not sure why, but it's probably a multi-factor authentication issue.

    But, I mean, I dunno. Fingerprint is pretty damn unique and final. Unless we're all getting our fingers cut off and used to unlock our phones and whatnot.

    Not sure I like the new "way" the multitasking cards scroll either. It's a weird difference. Almost like it's one at a time.

    I also don't care for the background change on the combined app folders that I have on my home screen. Didn't they used to be sorta clear? Now it's some weird cream off-white thing.

    Everything else seems pretty nice. Pretty sweet battery boost. After 12 hours on battery with my normal day use (which isn't super insane, I think I have about 1:05 SOT) I'm still at 61%. By this time of my day I'm usually around 35-40% if I'm lucky. And I haven't re-disabled my Package Disabler Pro list either. Not sure I will if it's like this.

    And my "Android System" usage has been pretty much annihilated. Usually it's up around 35-40% and now it's hovering around 12%. Big improvement.

    I'm very happy with the update, phone is noticeably faster and the little changes to TouchWiz are great.

    So far I'm happy with the update. Phone was fast anyway, now even a little more Some weird rendering issues on the upper left hand corner. The "Sprint" name sometimes doesn't disappear when a notification comes in and it looks kinda crowded up there. And when it does go away, it takes a while

    I turned WiFi calling back on. It was all noise when I last tried it a few months ago. Worked good now so I left it on. Overnight the battery drained to 72% (85% is more typical). The battery stats said WiFi calling burned about 60% of the drain to 72% by leaving the phone awake. I guess it makes sense that WiFi calling can't put the phone into a very deep sleep - which makes it a bit less useful if the phone is not on a charger.

    For some reason now, when I'm in my dialer and press numbers (by letter) to get to who I want to call, it doesn't show me the people that it should "dwindle down" to.

    Any ideas?

    Anyone have any ideas on my last post right above this? It's incredibly irritating.

    And so is the "Sprint" on the top left that appears every time I unlock the phone before disappearing. Like, I already know I use Sprint.

    Same issue here. With the task menu.
    I can only swipe 1 app away. When i try to do others , nothing happens.
    Kind of annoying.

    This is a general issue with Marshmallow on TouchWiz. I have the same issue on my S7 Edge. It gets somewhat better over time, but I've also found that swiping to the left instead of the right works better.

    I've had that same issue with the data connection seemingly flaking out. I thought it might be a coincidence and just a temporary network hiccup, but maybe not. Toggling airplane mode on for a few seconds then off seems to correct it, but still annoying if you're in the middle of something.
