    I'm very happy so far. I do miss the 360 carousel, and I wish there were more themes in the theme store with simple color schemes. Most of the ones there right now look like an 8 year old girl's birthday party exploded or something.

    But the phone is pretty, OMG the fast charger is FAST, I love having 64 gb and do not miss the SD card, battery life is still TBD but I just ordered the Aukey fast-charging battery bank and that assuages my concerns a bit. The screen is super pretty, I love Smart Lock, I love having the choice about icon size/rows per screen, S Find is great, and the settings overall seem a bit more user friendly.

    Very happy with the device and the nicest phone ever in my opinion. Don't get me wrong I've run into quite a few bugs or problems like example an annoying one is auto brightness will turn off automatically for me allot but I'm still loving the device.

    Im sure it's a huge overhaul than the note 4....... I had in December. That thing is a brick of lag city. Oh yeah, the camera in that is complete garbage as well. Only thing good about it was taking photos of sunny days with no movement. If you have kids or pets, forget about even taking a decent photo. As of the S6, to me is still more of the same laggy touchwiz from what I've seen. I think this phone is better than the Note 4 but it's way over-hyped.

    If all your used to is android, the lag may not seem like a big deal to you. Not going to argue about software on each, it's obvious iphone's software is better designed for their own hardware.That's the issue with android, too many different manufacturers to get it to run right on every device.
    Sorry man. I've had every iPhone but the 4s and have had my 6 plus since launch. The S6 is every bit as smooth as the 6 plus and in the 5 days I've had it has been less buggy than ios8. I even only had one app force close on me (directv) in 5 days of use. My 6 plus locks up every other day. Still a great device and I'm leaning towards keeping it as well. But it's obvious you don't have an s6 as your comments are completely off base. If you want to talk negative about the battery life..ok. some people are experiencing issues and I can see that although I'm not one of them. But to say this phone lags, is buggy, is not smooth tells me you have not used one

    Add me to the (large) list of happy S6 users. I have two complaints: first, every single theme in the Samsung store available so far looks like it was made by and for a 10-year-old girl or a frat boy; second, I'm used to being rooted (for at least the last five years and three phones), and I keep running into roadblocks that I normally just steamroll over because I'm trying hard NOT to root my S6 and get shut out of Samsung Pay before I even get a chance to try it.

    But the phone itself is just fantastic.

    There are plenty of happy users. The only unhappy people that I have any sympathy for are the ones on TMobile or the ones that are having ridiculously high cell standby due to a bug.
    What issues are tmobile users having exactly? Just bought bought mine and now I'm concerned

    Some are experiencing high battery drain from cell standby and possibly wifi and wifi calling.

    For those wanting a more guy based theme they have 5-6 avengers themes which are pretty cool. You have to click on the avenger add on the top. For some reason it almost appears like an add.

    I only just got the phone and have had it for about 24 hours.

    Quick impressions:

    + Screen is superb
    + Camera so far is excellent
    + Phone overall quite fast
    + Build/design is nice
    + Fingerprint scanner hasn't missed yet

    - There is stutter and lag here and there in weird instances
    - The loudspeaker is abysmal. I mean really really trash
    - Battery life so far seems questionable at best

    So far though impressions are positive. I do like it quite a bit, but those issues are kind of irritating me. Particularly the inconsistent performance. It's smooth for the most part, but then stutters all of a sudden or drops frames here and there. It feels slower than my One M8. Not sure if it's just the animation speed or what, but it doesn't seem as snappy as the M8. I'll have to play with some settings.

    The M8 has a mature software now (1 year old) so it's totally optimized.
    It looks like the S6 software still need some optimizations (just like the M9 which is slower than M8 btw).
    Also custom roms will greatly improve things

    Hmm, no it's more than that. M8 has stayed the same speed/smoothness since release. It didn't get smoother/faster over time or anything. Not for me at least. The S6 is definitely slower (at least in animations) than the M8, and seems just a fraction less responsive. Nothing enormous, but comparing the two side by side, the M8 just does stuff faster.

    And I'm not interested in custom roms. Haven't done that stuff in years and I'm not interested in doing it again.

    This phone is awesome. I came from a G2 that was top of class 1.5yrs ago. Battery life has been fine for me (1 day use so far), and will judge that. The fingerprint scanner is so accurate, and the camera is beyond amazing!

    If you havent tried virtual shot on the camera, give it a try. Its someone gimmicky, but I can definitely see it come in handy.

    Does it dim even on manual brightness? I've always used manual on all my phone and just left like at 80% brightness but my Edge would tone down when I entered a darker room. I'm not used to this and it was frustrating. I wonder if this is normal for the s6 Edge or mine had an issue.

    I understand that on auto it does this but not on manual as well.... I'm sorry but I had to return mine last night. I still love the edge and I will get it again once this problem is solved

    LOL at the folks claiming that any Samsung product doesn't lag..The S6 lags and the home page redraws on several occassion. Lag with Samsung is not a question of if but more a question of how much.
