    I picked mine up around 11:30 AM (PDT) today and have been working on getting it setup ever since. Now that I'm at a bit of a stopping point, I can summarize some things.

    As for the phone itself, I like everything about it. The blue is AWESOME. No regrets there at all. The phone feels great, even in the Spigen case I got for it and is lighter and easier to handle than my old Note 3 in an Otterbox Commuter case.

    My issues I think are mainly with Android 6.0, but maybe a couple are with the phone. In no particular order:

    - The high-sensitivity screen option is gone; this was great for using it while wearing gloves.

    - The Gallery is awful. I liked the 5.0 version much better. This one is way too much like the iOS 9 Photos app which I also hate.

    - The new "combined" settings menu is taking some time to get used to; I feel like it's gotten harder to find stuff than it used to be.

    - The "edge" features already annoyed me enough that I disabled them. They kept getting in the way.

    - I don't like being unable to have my screens "wrap around" i.e. if I continue to swipe left, the screens just keep rotating through. Now they don't.

    That's all I can think of right now. All in all I'm happy.. will have to keep playing with it and learning the differences.

    I haven't used Gallery since Google Photos came out. Do you not use Google Photos?

    I don't know. There's barely anything that I don't like.

    Battery life is a little "meh" for me as of right now, but it's steadily improving.

    Other than that, loving it.

    (SM-N930F variant, if anyone asks)

    How did you get the SM-N930F variant so fast?

    Google Photos huh? Is that a local app or does it require everything to be uploaded to them?

    both. it will show you all your local stuff. when u run it the first time, it will ask if you want to sync with the cloud (drive). i didnt used to, but as of late i have been and its very convenient; but not required.

    It's wayyy too early to tell. This is the most beautiful phone I've ever held. I want to believe it'll never let me down.

    But I imagine people's complaints about the S7 might come to this eventually.

    I wouldn't trust Google's apps to ever truly be local. When they tried to push their stupid g+ stuff, I found my photos were apparently automagically loaded on there...

    If Google now is integrated in the TouchWiz launcher instead of that stupid briefing i would use TouchWiz launcher. Until then I'll be using google now launcher. I believe Sony worked with Google to get the google now page to the left of the Sony launcher so hopefully it comes as an option with other OEM launcher as well.
    I like the briefing. One mans trash...

    Only thing I don't like so far is the iris scanner.
    Stupid thing doesn't like my eyes I guess.
    Doesn't work right for me at all.
    Great idea though!

    I almost don't want to put in in the case it's so beautiful!

    I really don't understand how such a beautiful device could be made by mere mortals. I am not worthy. I am not worthy.

    Does samsung do the thing where they create their own beautiful cases? That's one thing I like about apple, they have p sweet cases

    I would like it if it synced with my normal Flipboard account. It shows that it's connected in the Overflow menu, but the articles are completely different from what I set up in the Flipboard app.

    I didn't even set up the TouchWiz home screen. I installed Nova Prime right away. I don't mind TouchWiz, but I can't stand the icons.
    But all those icon packs in the store though.

    I'm already missing the action memo. I liked the ability to take notes while on the phone and have them attached to the conversation. Next time you're on the phone with the same number, it would give you an icon to pull you notes right from the dialer screen. Very useful for support calls where your taking a lot of notes and need to refer back.

    I don't like that I can't change the brightness of the capacitive keys. I definitely remember being able to do that on my Note 4. I don't want to install another app to do so. Samsung why take that away? Those keys are cornea scorchers in the dark.
