    This isn't Reddit, but there's been a lot of speculation on how other variants of the S6 would perform compared to the T-Mobile version. There's also a lot of you who don't have one yet. There's a lot of you on the fence, too, who may need it compared to current phones. I've probably used whatever phone you're asking to compare it with. Ask away.


    Edit: I am using the Edge, but outside of specific questions about the Edge functions, they're almost identical.

    Curious to know how the battery life is holding up. I have the HTC m8 and it usually lasts a solid day with my usage.

    I've had it since fairly early this morning so my usage pattern wasn't exactly normal today. I will say that I was glad to see absolutely zero sign of cell standby in my usage chart and still haven't at this point. I used the M8, stock, for a few months when it first launched. It's too early to tell, and I don't know your usage pattern, but it has the early potential of lasting 4-5 hours on screen with 14-17 hours of use. I'll know more when I get to go through a normal day and get a few more charge cycles under it's belt.

    Between 23-24 GB left after first boot.

    There's some glare on the edges depending on what angle you're looking at it. That said, this AMOLED panel is great in direct sunlight. I was able to test that out this afternoon before it clouded up. Like the Note 4, if you have it on auto brightness, the screen gets extremely bright/vibrant under direct sunlight. Handy feature.

    If you install a theme, can you still do normal customizations on top of the theme like changing wallpaper, colors , etc?

    You can change the wallpaper and font, but nothing else that I can see. Switching between the Space and Default theme removed my Gmail and Google Search widget when I went back to Default. Odd. I'll continue to mess around with it to see if it's a normal occurrence.

    Is that high for new devices? I dont really have any means for comparison as my Nexus 4 takes up about 4gb or so I think from the OS/other crap, is that high for system memory? I cant imagine deleting the apps that are actually deleteable will give you that much more space

    I believe the M9 is similar by comparison. If you're on the fence about the Edge and the money isn't the issue, I think the 64GB S6 is the sweet spot.

    I have a 32gb regular S6 coming (hopefully tomorrow) but I was just curious if that 22-23gb range was accurate on the actual retails units, thanks for the SS tho

    None that I've seen. At both my office and my home, where I normally get strong signal, it's been excellent. I was curious about that myself given their use of their own modem.

    Great! Thanks for the confirmation it's good to know I won't have any issues going from my current HTC One to the S6.

    Anytime. Glad to help.

    I think that might be stretching it, especially now with this being so early in the phone's life, but I wouldn't rule it out after an update or two to optimize further. I'm actually pretty pleased with the battery life so far and hopefully this weekend I can push it a little harder and share my screens with you guys. A few people have this variant already and posted some really good first charge cycle screens.

    As far as the camera goes, I've run out of words that describe how good it is for a smartphone camera. The auto mode generally takes care of everything and allows you to just point and shoot. That's the reason people love the iPhone cameras. Now Android has that, but better.

    I'd say between 30-35 total. I disabled 25 so far. That's all the AT&T stuff, YP, Lookout, Keeper, S Voice and S Beam, etc. The reports of less bloat were greatly exaggerated, but a lot of that is just carrier garbage. Disabled, but not gone. Doesn't drive me nuts anymore, but I understand why it does some people.

    If they follow the Nexus 6 timeline, probably 6 months from now. Gotta love Big Red.
