    Yes for T-Mobile. It is just a quick toggle to turn off.
    After you toggle WiFi Calling off from the pull down, can you customize that toggle to be removed from the pulldown menu?

    The One M9's battery is a disappointment. It's bigger than the S6 but either the S6 has more than enough power-saving tricks up it's sleeve to sip less power or HTC's software is un-optimized like heck. The camera performance on the M9 in Auto mode is letting it down. Manual adjustments reveal that underneath all that software mess, it's a very capable shooter.

    I'm also pretty surprised at the S6's benchmark results on Antutu. If anything, that's MORE THAN TWICE the score my M7 gets. That Exynos 7 is monstrous.It also beat the LG G3 by a significant margin (the G3 scored 47k without any thermal throttling.)

    you can rearrange any item on pull down menu.

    First, pull the menu down with two fingers, instead of one.

    Drag the one you want to hide to the bottom.

    It could possibly be firmware related but also the chipset could be a factor as well.

    I have had my tmobile edge since 3/31 and I have been getting 16-17 hours on a charge. 3-4 hours of screen time. Perfect for my uses.

    Wait, does that say download booster? Have the carriers not locked this on the S6?

    Not everyone is having poor battery life. A guy on Reddit sent me this after I was skeptical of him saying he had good battery life:

    He said he's using auto brightness too. WiFi turned off completely

    There isn't a quick toggle for the download booster on the T-Mobile S6 (see below) but the option is there under more networks (see below also).

    Not bad so far. As long as I disable wifi calling when I leave the house it seems to fix it. It just seems once enabled it causes a cell standby issue.

    I am loving the wireless charging at home.

    Did everyone see this? From GSMArena: Update, April 3: We received a retail unit and re-ran the benchmark. The numbers improved noticeably compared to the initial tests with the pre-production unit.

    Remember when I said that I'll be genuinely impressed if the S6 gets past 4 hours of screen-on time?

    Now that I see it, I'm really impressed. Great job, Samsung! Managed to give a mediocre 2,550mAh battery impressive battery life.

    More like it's a bad sign for other 2015 flagships.
    Even the S6, with all the cutting-edge and energy efficient technology, only managed to squeeze out 5 hour SoT with 24 hour usage from the 14nm power-hungry ARMv8 cores. What makes us think that other flagships using the 20nm reference ARMv8 cores with even worse tech will do any better?
    I said that the M9 will have worse battery life than the S6, and I was correct. I'll also predict that the Z4, G4, and other 2015 flagships will have worse battery life than the S6.

    People regularly pushed 7-8 hours SOT with phones like the M8 and Oneplus One. My iPhone 6+ gets incredible battery life and absolutely ridiculous standby too. It sucks that the 2015 Android flagships are a step backwards here.The M9 does indeed seem to have horrible battery life compared to the M8.

    If the Z4 comes out with a 3,400 mAh battery instead of the 3,100 mAh in the Z3 as reported with the same 1080p screen. It will crush the S6 in battery life S810 or not.

    Just for my own knowledge. Why would it matter? Different network but battery results would be in line on a proportional basis with results above?

    Shopping expensive stuff is always a rushed decision for many, if we cool down and wait, we will find that we really don't need new toys after all. lol
    Yup...going on 3 years with the GS3 and if it wasn't slowing down or getting glitchy I'd still hang on to it.
