    I was really hoping to love this phone but it keeps trying me. I can't find anything in the settings menu, but I'm slowly getting familiar with it and that's getting better little by little. Sliding side to side in the app drawer is a pain when it doesn't even go full circle. Give me scrolling all day. Been having issues with the FPS but I realized tonight that I don't have the latest update that so many say really helps with this so I go and check only to be halted in my tracks because it can only be downloaded over WiFi. WTH? It's a pretty phone, does what it should but it's really trying my love.
    Unfortunately, stock launchers have limitations when it comes to stuff like app drawers and scrolling among other things. I too prefer vertical scrolling but I prefer the stock launcher so I'll live with it.

    Clarification: I wasn't suggesting for people not to take comments personal, I was asking people not to make negative personal comments in accordance with forum rules. Negative comments about a device are allowed.
    Gotcha.

    I honestly thought that after two days I would be bored with this phone. I was incorrect. Of course some of that was a learning curve coming from the pixel but I'm still playing around with some of the features and settings.
    I am still vastly impressed with this device in part because of the One UI which is now available on other Samsung devices, however the hardware is no slouch. I'm one of those that comes from the theory that 8 gigabytes of RAM still overkill but I won't turn it down.

    For those of you who I not are impressed with the camera, I encourage you to take some time to experiment with the Pro features. I realize that a lot of us just want to hit a button in auto but even the best of the best cameras don't get it right each and every time. The nice thing about manual settings is that with the exception of movement you're getting a live preview of your shot as you play around with it. If you're getting too much motion blur just bump up the shutter speed a bit until you get the results you want. A little setup in advanced goes a long way. If none of that excites you then download the Google cam port for probably one of the best auto shooters experiences out there.

    I think some folks just like to be negative. Perhaps it's for attention.

    I thought I read somewhere on here that it is compatible with all versions. If I come across that post I'll try to get back to you.

    Thanks for that...very interested in seeing the differences.

    I’m yet to go into the pro options on the camera and use just the standard photo but saying that the only pics I have taken is at home currently.

    There are a few post in the S10 photos thread comparing Samsung's camera and Gcam.

    I believe Notefan 161's concern is Gcams compatibility with Exynos. I don't want to take this thread off topic but if you know anything about that please pass it on.

    I haven't been sure that I actually want to keep my AT&T S10+. My battery life is always cut in half by using phones on AT&T as compared to using them on T-Mobile.

    I had AT&T unlock my S10+ on Friday and I flashed the unlocked firmware onto the phone and I'm using it on T-Mobile now. I'm hoping this will make the difference in me actually loving this phone now.

    That seems odd. I saw for myself Friday that battery life is not as good when I'm using AT&T's network vs. WiFi but it didn't seem dramatic.

    The difference is huge for me. On my Note 8 which is 1.5 years old now and still on the original battery, I have 2 days 0 hrs 8 minutes using my T-Mobile sim and the battery is at 55% with two hrs screen time. on AT&T I would barely get 1- 1.5 days out of one charge.

    My iPhone XS Max is even more impressive on T-Moile. I last charged my XS Max Tuesday morning and it's just now dropped to 20% battery. ON AT&T Iget about 1.5 days with very little usage.

    I have to use WiFi calling at my house on AT&T because I get no signal here in the middle of Denver and it's been that way since 2007 when I first tried them out.

    I'm surprised at the results also, I have both TMobile and Att and T-Mobile also got me better battery life as well as unlocked version.
    Always thought Att was better of the 2 but guess it's by location.

    Would you say that because the AT&T signal is not as strong where you are the phone is expending more energy?

    I just continue to buy AT&T phones because I can get them for zero down no matter what capacity I choose plus free overnight shipping unlike T-Mobile. I always pay off the AT&T phone very quickly though so I can get them unlocked just like I did with my AT&T Note 9 that I sold at Christmas.

    I agree if you can get good pricing why not ..I unlock mine shortly after also just change firmware as you do

    This exactly plus, getting the phone unlocked and installing the unlocked firmware has always improved my battery life as well. There's no bloat installed on the unlocked firmware. It just gets slower updates from Samsung but I'll accept the tradeoff.

    Yeah, one of the first things I always do is disable a bunch of AT&T bloat.

    Speaking of AT&T's network, I find it a bit hokey that on the S10+ it'll often show 5Ge. It's not 5G, as I understand it, so why pretend?

    I don't blame you disable the bloat lol

    5Ge I remember back Att is being sued for this false advertising on device's I believe it's just a enhanced version of 4GLTE

    Seems like AT&T is really trying to play on customers' ignorance. They should get sued, and lose, for the 5Ge nonsense. Completely unnecessary.
