    I got my Verizon S6 last Saturday from Verizon store and have 7.0.99 for Google play service
    I could be wrong but I think it just applies to AT&T.

    I'd say this update has improved my battery life a little. Not that it needed improving, but I'll take it.

    Whoops I'm 7.0.99 there. I'll hang tight until it pushes my battery life isn't terrible right now so it's not urgent. Thanks!

    After using it for a few days I'd say it helps nicely; though if you don't currently have an issue with Google Play Services eating though the battery or you've disabled most of the stuff that uses Google Play Services it likely won't have any effect.

    Performance while connected to WiFi has improved greatly and performance while off WiFi has improved some. It seems like when you leave a WiFi connection it just defaults to "You're moving? Must track you everywhere now! Where are you?!?!' mode and it starts chewing battery life. Still an improvement though; when I pull it off the charger my estimated time has jumped from 16 to 18 hours to 20 to 22 hours.

    Something that this new version does now is that for all of us with Android Wear (Smart Watches) the persistent notification in the Status Bar is finally gone, thanks God.

    Same here and I can see an increase in battery life already, although I was already getting between 5-6 sot. A lot of people just install the APK's without waiting. They are updated constantly and this one will take a couple weeks before its all rolled out.

    Cool. With that battery life I'm just curious, do you have location services on?

    Yes. I have all settings out of the box except wifi scanning.

    What I find amusing about this whole thing is people actually wanting to get mad/argue that some of us are getting such decent battery life. I don't think most of us are disagreeing there's an issue affecting some devices; it's just not affecting ours.

    We got people legitimately angry about this. This should be a positive thing. "This is what this device can do once they fix these issues" is the message I'm hearing. Just like other Samsung launches, there's just some people that want this device to fail.

    Sorry about your luck, people.

    I'm on verizon and have 7.3.28 I got my phone on release day . The 11th . And I manualy update all my apps and go through them before I do and I never seen the update unless it updated when they first turned the phone on at the verizon store on the 11th. It's also not in my update history. Maybe it was already on my phone.

    Well I never checked the version of this when I got the S6 at Verizon on April 10, but the S6 edge I exchanged for at Verizon on April 15, had 7.0.99

    I've rebooted the phone and still no update on play store yet. Debating if I want to manually do it, will I have to have unknown sources on to install the apk?

    If you try and install it (I uploaded the APK to Google Drive then opened it form there) and you don't have the unknown sources on it will prompt you to turn it on, then take you to the settings and then when you turn it on it will give you the option to only turn it on for this app installation. If you select yes it'll allow you to load the APK but it'll keep the unknown sources option off after.

    I agree. I definitely look at it as positive. That means hopefully one day I'll get it too.

    Yes. I have all settings out of the box except wifi scanning.
    Dang, that's REALLY good.

    Glad someone sees that. If I was on the other side of the fence and had battery issues, I'd be encouraged by the performance some people are getting instead of saying the battery sucks after it's been officially launched for 10 whole days.

    I was not able to get hangouts notifications pushed while on wifi. I installed this on my T-mobile galaxy s6 and it seems to have fixed the issue. Not sure if the two are related but glad it's fixed.

    Since the update, Smart Lock works better. Before it was not working at my Trusted Place. And it seems, so far, my battery life might be better. Its showing my battery should last me 19 hours. It was 13 before.
