    My wife has always complained about her other Samsung phone cameras (she has the Note 3) with the slow and bad photo taking abilities.

    The other day I did the Wild West draw with my S6 and took out the camera and turned it on and take a great photo is mere seconds. She was impressed and so was I with this phone camera quality and speed!
    Yeah I hate how terrible my Note 3 pics are and how slow the camera is. So glad I got the S6.

    Hopefully, it and the Lollipop issue get solved with 5.1.1.

    I think there other idea of just giving you a phone to try and keeping your Verizon service was better. That way we really could compare them side by side. This way not able to do that.
    IMO their network is fine as long as your within range. If a certain amount of your time is spent out of range then what good is it? Legere stated today that by years end they will be past Verizon in coverage area. Maybe in his dreams, but if this was to become reality then Verizon would really lose subscribers as there would be no further reason to stay. It will be a great day for all when T-mobile passes Verizon in coverage area, a lot of us may be dead by then, but hey, who knows maybe pigs will fly as well.

    Still loving this phone, even with some inconsistent battery...i get excited every time i use it, as if i just opened it. I have no regrets, this phone is stellar and even after the G4 announcement (looks like a great device) im even more confident i made the right decision for me. The camera is OK in low light but in lighted areas is STELLAR. Still hasnt slowed down at all.

    While it may be wishful thinking, if I were a VZW customer, I would take this opportunity to bolt to a GSM carrier as it might be even longer for VZW to convert. I know signal strength might be a short term issue but, for Petes sake, TMO is covering off the ETF.

    Not saying it's not a sweet deal for some, it certainly is. For others, coverage will always trump everything else. I certainly hope a lot of people will to tmoble. Can't help but be a win for the rest of us that stick around. I loved tmo when I had them previously, just not there lack of service areas.

    I wish I would have seen this when I still had the S5 and still had some time left on my 2 yr contract. But now I did the early edge and am making payments on the 64GB S6 edge.

    The link said they would pay the early ETF up to $650 or payments, which I take it if one was on edge, they would pay the rest of the amount, but they don't say if they also limit it to $650 or not. SInce I've only made 1 payment, it's still going to be over 650 left.

    If they did limit it to that amount, I don't know if I could swing the final amount to pay off Verizon to do the change.

    I may have to wait till I get the amount down some before changing. I guess I could go to a T-Mobile store and inquire about how they handle a transfer when I am on the early edge.

    What did you pay in addition? While it doesn't make you whole, the possible benefits may outweigh the incremental amount.

    I think the payments are $33 to $34 a month. I just made the first one on the latest bill, so I still have over $750 left. I think the cost for the 64 GB edge was $799. I'll have to log in and find out.

    I believe that a new phone is included so include that in your decision.

    OK killer battery, light use but still damn this is amazing. Had an issue for a while, but disabling location and removing Google fit fixed all. Could hit 2 days on light use. Also note this wasn't fully charged, running since 95% battery charge.

    Totally awesome, dude. Who has six hours for non-stop heavy usage? Not most people. Point is that great battery life is possible with this device given it's hardware and software optimization which is hopefully going to continue to get better making this device future resistant should one decide to hold on to it for a while. Can't wait for 5.1.1.

    So the tweaks really worked, I'm glad you listened, now you see the results, for some that's crippling the device, for you and a lot of us it's just not leaving everything on by default when we don't really need them and by doing that, enjoying longer battery life and appreciating even more this great phone.

    And that even with Facebook at the top of your list, that normally means that is running in the background a lot and keeping awake the phone, if you are not using Facebook that much for it to be at the top of the list, just click on it and Force Stop it, something has changed with that app since latest update as I have seen similar behavior with mine, even when I barely use it.

    If it doesn't affect the quality, don't take it out if you are fine with it. If you're like me, I am always a little pumped opening the box on a new device that little details escape me. I like removing all the plastic. To me, it's like leaving a tag on a new shirt. It doesn't affect the how the shirt fits or looks.

    I like the screen and camera. Camera is probably the best hardware feature of the phone, with the screen second.

    I like that the fingerprint scanner is pretty accurate and fast. It's a nice unlock method. The best software feature of the phone to me is the double tap home button to open the camera. Easy, makes sense and works well.

    I got it off the lense but can't get it off the flash. It doesn't look like one is on it and I tried to remove as if one was there but nothing came off.

    It's not easy to remove the LED flash plastic film. You have to just run your fingernail around the edges.
