    Not really. Unlike previous phones (even the Note 4), Touchwiz is very fluid. As much so even as iOS is on my iPhone 6+. I'm very impressed with the refinements Samsung has made with Touchwiz.
    I meant did putting Nova on top of Touchwiz cause any issues or lag?

    I just tried it out for this past 20-25 minutes. No lag. Really quick. I'm actually partial to Touchwiz's animations. Go figure.

    Anyone with a 64gb and how much storage is available? I would think 54 to 55 GB available?

    I don't have mine yet but another AT&T user who has 22GB available on the 32GB GS6. Sounds about right.

    There's a pretty entertaining thread over on the Edge forums regarding battery life. A lot of pitchforks are out. I find it amusing because my results, even this early on, are wildly different than theirs.

    I have to try Nova. I dont hate Touchwiz as much as most people do so I haven't felt the need for Nova yet. As long as it doesn't cause any lag or battery drain I'll give it a shot

    Since you mentioned it I just browsed over there, and yeah it's amusing indeed. It's couple of guys doing nothing but complaining on overnight drain. They don't even bother to share battery stats or try to figure out setting, culprit or do anything.

    I don't hate Touchwiz either but I'd like to be able to change the colors throughout the system.

    Maybe I'm just lucky but I don't see what the fuss is about with the battery. 3 days in and been solid since the first charge.

    I'd love to see how much better this phone can be once Lollipop is more efficient/less buggy. There's some good stuff ahead.

    Waiting on the G4 to make my decision but this looks promising. Of course I'm on Verizon so I should probably just get an iPhone. The way they lock androids down is sickening.

    Checked out the edge again at BB and AT&T and I noticed all of them had a vibraton issue when listening to music. Maybe its not an issue for most since I haven't noticed any comment about it, but the phone vibrates to the beat of the music a lot. Both reps I talked to said they all do that and its normal. I thought it annoying and its really putting me off the edge. The S6 also did it, tho a lot less. I'm thinking it's the smallness/thinness of the edge that is the reason. Even turning the volume down it still does it. Was kind of disappointed with the speaker anyway. It seems a sweet device. Not bashing it, just disappointed in this.

    I was going to hold off on battery screens because I don't think it's a clear picture of battery life this early on. That said, I figured some people would appreciate this. It's my second charge cycle.

    My 64GB AT&T S6 had just over 55GB out of the box after all updates, something like 55.4GB.

    Great to know. Now, if Best Buy would release my pre-order on Friday, I will be set as will most who get the storage level even the 32GB storage level.

    This phone destroys Apple's current lineup. No wonder they're mad.

    I only have mine for a few hours but I agree. This phone rocks. I'm gonna have to game a little now and truly test it out.

    Beemed to you with the GS6
