    You upstaged my joke about what did one sheep say to the other when they found out about waiting on 5.1.1,

    I now have both. Let's just say Samsung needs to get 5.1 out to fix some things.

    Has there been any update that would indicate a delay in the rumored late June timeframe?

    So you're asking if there are any rumors that contradict the earlier rumors that were never confirmed?

    I just returned mine, battery life was second in my list of worst battery life phone, just better than the Moto X 2014, at least I knew that the Moto was because of battery size, the G4 doesn't have that excuse.

    Waited 8 days but since the first day and 3 factory resets, was always the same, more than 1 hour, sometimes up to 2 hours after I unplugged it and still at 100% and as soon as it begins to drop it never stopped. Yesterday I was at 75% at 4pm after unplugging it at 5:15am, great, then I just left the office and 5 hours later, by 9pm I was at 20% with just a little more than 3 hours of SoT. Same settings, same apps and syncs as my S6 Edge and at least 1 hour of SoT less.

    That and the lag and stutter across all the UI made the experience a meh one, not justifiable to pay $600 for it and leaving my S6 Edge collecting dust.

    Everything's possible, but I've seen lemons and they behave differently, this one seem to worked fine on certain conditions but once you get out of those it went downhill all the time, like if it didn't like cell usage, in same conditions my S6 Edge works as expected. Wasn't in the mood of getting another one and redo all my settings for a fourth time just to see if it was better, while I had my S6 Edge that has been my best overall phone of all time collecting dust.

    I will say .. I am loving the G4. The only complaint I have for the G4 is no quick charge (I have the international model) -- Other than that .. I really can't complain on anything else.

    Why no quick charge? Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 doesn't work with yours?

    That's so cool to hear. Could you elaborate a little on what features are better?

    Personally, I love both phones. But I've never heard that the G4 has better features than the S6. So what are they?

    The big one is the Universal Remote function, learning codes, combining functions from several remotes, completely customizing the remote choosing what you want (as I did for my Blu-Ray player. I haven't found this on the s6. The only thing s6 has is Peel Remote I believe.

    I have the International Model so I don't believe it has it (or at least I am not seeing the speeds). As said in Phil's article .. I get the same "quicker" results w/ my QC 2.0 bricks but I do not see the full QC 2.0 speeds I saw on my S6.

    As for us, we've been using pre-production models (and software) of the G4. And while, yes, it charges faster thanks to the 1.8A wall wart, we haven't experienced the same sort of Quick Charge speeds we've enjoyed on the likes of the Moto X, Nexus 6, HTC One M8 and M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and others. Will a software update open things up for us before release? Or in time for the release versions? We'll have to see.

    Cheap phones from no name manufacturers... Smartphone have hit a peak, most users don't know what they are buying otherwise Samsung in the first place wouldn't have been so dominant. Now at high end Apple takes most share and Samsung probably next, but at low and mid end there are variety of manufacturers. Samsung is getting squeezed at both ends.
