    I'm coming from an LG G2. If there was one elegant feature of the G2 (actually I somewhat liked that phone) it was the ability to customize the menu buttons to include one that pulled down the notification bar (panel/blind, whatever you wish to call it).

    Is there a way to open the bar on the S6 without needing to stretch my finger to the top of the OLED?

    Thanks!

    If you install Nova launcher, you can set up a gesture to just swipe down from anywhere on the screen to pull down the notification...it was pretty convenient

    I do exactly this. Makes life easier. Nova is your friend.

    Yup, nova FTW.
    Actually when I read this thread title I thought, wtf, he must be doing it wrong, then I remembered i had nova and he obviously didn't. Seriously OP, check it out. You can always remove it if you don't like it.

    Thanks. Seems like Nova may be needed. Too bad Samsung missed the boat on adding an option to customize the bar. With phones getting larger, there should really be another way to open the bar (without needing to install an app). Duh!

    Will I want/need Nova prime ($4) or just the free launcher? Some of the reviewers say Nova crashes a lot. What's been your experience as far as reliability?

    Thanks again.

    I find it reliable. Crashed a bit on my Note 3 randomly, but hasn't crashed once yet on the S6.

    Never had a problem with nova crashing. Had to switch to the nova beta version for the Swipe down gesture to work.

    I've used nova for years and I don't think it's ever crashed on me once the entire time. My go to launcher! Worth every penny!

    Have some one pull your finger 1000 times. That might make it longer. ...

    Basic Launcher stuff is free, but gestures require Prime. Totally worth it.

    I've had Nova crash on me a few times a year, but it takes less time to recover than clicking through the crash message.

    I bought nova prime just for notifications pull down, and it doesn't even work - must be a bug, annoying

    Is there anyway to use the stock Samsung weather widget on Nova? I have Nova prime but that's the only thing keeping me on touchwiz.
