    In ten days I'm upgrading my phone and I have narrowed down my search to the S6 and the iPhone 6. As much as the rest of my family, who is on the Android platform, would love for me to get the S6, I am concerned about how my investment in a MacBook Pro and Powerbeats 2 Wireless earphones will affect how they work with it (Family vs. Ecosystem).

    I'm reaching out to Android Central to find out if anyone has had success in using either item with their S6. It is my hope that the answers will go a long way towards helping me with my final decision.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I am not too happy about returning the Edge and keeping the S6, but I am getting ready to do just that...I purchased both and have a case and a tempered glass screen protector on the S6. I have a case for the Edge, but no glass screen protector. Do you feel it's better to keep the S6 or the Edge if I put a PET film ZAGG screen protector on it? I do like the Edge more, it's stunning, but I really don't like the PET film....

    1. When you do your full review can you take some pictures of moving objects instead of only the still object shots? I don't know if you have kids but, if not, can you borrow a toddler from someone and try to take some photos of him/her doing something like going down a slide and see if it can produce clear photos unlike other phones?

    2. Have you noticed the Auto-HDR mode working or being effective?

    3. Does the glass over the camera lens seem tough and scratch resistant? Do you know if it's sapphire glass?

    4. When recording video, can you touch the screen to snap a photo? Is it a quality photo? How does the audio sound in the playback of the video (my nexus 5 produces distorted audio in busy environments).

    5. How is Google Now incorporated? Does the Google launcher need to be installed to use Google Now? Does "OK, Google" work from anywhere in the OS as long as the screen is on?

    6. Since the phone has fairly flat edges, can you stand it up on it's side on a desk when in landscape mode, or will a kickstand case be necessary to do this? I know this one is a longshot...

    I finally took my phone in to the VZW store, I thought my fingerprint sensor was broken. Turns out I have "lousy fingerprints" and it won't recognize my fingers. We finally got it to work but by then, I was nervous I'd always be struggling to get into my phone, so I gave up. Just make sure you have good prints! Perhaps my future should be in crime


    How is the fingerprint sensor? How many fingerprints can it store? Does it actually work or is it just a gimmick like on the note?

    I have a question, not sure if this was discussed already, but can you use multi-window while on the phone... Let's say I'm talking on the phone and wanted to open another app how would I do that? thanks in advance
    Sure, it's very easy. When you're on a call and you want to access another app, say your calendar, you simply hit the "Home" button and then click on the app you want to open. You will still be on the call and you can still exchange with the person on the other end, all while accessing your other app. If you want to get back to the Phone screen, simply click on the button to the left of the Home button and all the apps currently open, will show and are selectable.

    I am connecting my S6 to Mac but the phone does not shows any USB options but only charges the phone. Android File Transfer also doesn't recognises the phone. I am using the original cable, have factory reseted many times and also wiped cache partition. What could be wrong? Software issue or hardware issue? Please any tips...Thanks.

    I bought an unlocked phone Galaxy S6 from Verizon and bought a prepaid card. Everything worked fine. Then, I was going to BYOP with Straight Talk. I took out the nano sim card (Verizon) and installed the nano sim card from Straight Talk. It was one day past my prepaid card month and although Verizon said my phone number would be good with them for 90 days, Straight Talk said I had to have an "active" account for Verizon to release my phone number. Sooooooo...back to Verizon, reinstalled Verizon nano sim card and got a month of prepaid service. However, initially the salesperson sold me a $45 card without telling me that it only had a 1 gig amount of data. (I know, I should've asked), so I said change it to the $60 with 2.5 gigs. Well, then she got on the phone with someone and said she was making sure that I got the new amount of data available. Well, I get out to my car and I didn't have any internet availability. What!!! Go back into the store and I have no 4G connectivity. They call technical support and someone there says that when I installed the nano sim card from Straight Talk that it changed the software settings and not only will the internet not work but my phone could completely die at any moment!! What!!! Now, when I am at home, my phone connects with our wi-fi, but no 4G elsewhere. HELP, PLEASE!!

    Thanks in advance...

    Hi Andrew!

    With older Galaxy S phones there used to be a way to grab a still from a video after you shot it. That appears to be gone on the S6, even though there's a way to grab a still from a video during recording. This seems silly. Do you know if there is a way to grab a still from a video after it was recorded on the S6?

    Thanks!

    Hi just got an S6 at AT&T store, and i wanted to wait to set up. She let me leave store without installing SIM Card. Whats the best start for me? I think i should charge it. Several posts i seem to recall mentioning booting up the 1st time without the SIM Card. Should I do this? Any advantage, or no? I was real leary about trading in my iPhone 5S but it's done now. Just want to give myself the best chance to start using this most wisely. Few things I notice, I asked about a sealed box and was told only Apple seals their devices. Any thoughts about the AT&T 5.1.1 update and when we may get it? Thanks for reading.

    There's no advantage or disadvantage to charging it before starting it for the first time, or booting it up with or without a SIM. You're obviously going to want to get an active SIM in it sooner rather than later so you can start using it...

    Most boxes are "sealed" in that there's a bit of tape around the edges that shows whether or not the box has been opened. That's how most manufacturers handle it.

    Both T-Mobile and US Cellular have pushed 5.1.1 updates to the GS6. I wouldn't think AT&T would be too far behind.

    That's no longer built into the camera/gallery, it seems. Would have to look into another 3rd party gallery app to do it.

    Which one act better in battery life?
    Both the GS6 and S6 edge have identical battery life. The 50 mAh battery size difference has no material affect on the length of the battery.

    cannot use google now to set reminders. on S5 it worked perfectly but on S6 it constantly tells me Google can't be reached now. I've tried everything - any similar issues or solutions? thanks!
    Not really a GS6 specific issue — this can happen on any phone. Sounds like a network or app problem.

    Hi,
    Can you help me out with a question?
    When I swipe to open the phone the phone page/phone dial comes up automatically. A lot of times I'm not opening it to use the phone. Is there a way to bypass the phone and go to the Menu/icon screen?
    Thanks a lot.
    JR
    You're swiping from the bottom left corner, which opens up the phone. Swipe from the middle to just unlock to the homescreen.

    I have a question, not sure if this was discussed already, but can you use multi-window while on the phone... Let's say I'm talking on the phone and wanted to open another app how would I do that? thanks in advance
    Just press the home button while in a call. You can then use any app you want and keep the call going.

    Hi can you use a Bluetooth stylus with S6E? If yes how do you pair them?
    Thanks!

    Posted via the Android Central App
    Sure you can. Every BT stylus has its own pairing procedure.

    Can one of you guys try taking a picture while moving the camera slowly and tell me if there is any lag with the live view after the picture is taken. It happens on my camera immediately after I snap a pic, the whole live view stutters a bit then it is smooth. Driving me crazy.
    I haven't noticed stutter in the camera viewfinder like that.

    I been looking up about the battery life of s6 and people been saying its rubbish. would I get a full day if my screen brightness on 10% and I only listen to 1 hours of music and a hour with 3g on. so from 7am to 4pm would it last me
    Really going to depend on the network you're connected to and the apps you have installed and running. What you've described isn't intensive at all and the battery should have no problem keeping the phone alive for that length of time. The real questions what else are you doing during that time? Surely the phone will have other apps installed and you'll be doing things other than just 1 hour of music listening and 1 hour with data on...
