    I'm on Rogers as well but the phone code didn't work for me - got an error. How did you make the determination?
    I just used the dial code. Are you sure you're including the initial star asterisk in front of it?

    Dialing that code doesn't work on Verizon.
    I just tried it using a Sprint phone and it doesn't work either.

    Edit: Never mind, I forgot one of the pound signs.

    Looks like I have the Sony one.

    Here is an article explaining the difference between the 2..with pics

    Here’s the difference between Samsung and Sony camera sensors on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge - SamMobile

    I finally just got to take a good look at the differences in the pics on the above link ... and quite frankly, to ME, the Samsung sensor images look better. Both sensors seem to do a wonderful job, but in the "not so great" lighting conditions, the sony sensor looks like it's adding a blue tint to everything.

    In all fairness, in daytime images and/or images with a lot of different colors in them, both images look extremely similar and of equal quality. Also, without seeing the subject of each photo with my own eyes, it's impossible to know which sensor is capturing the more "true to life" color/hue/saturation/etc in the photo.

    I downloaded Exif, however, I cannot find where it lists either LL or LS. Where should we look?

    Looking at the results from both sensors it seems to me that the Sony is capturing a bit richer colors and handles contrast a bit better but the Isocell is giving a bit more detail and is unequivocally superior in low light conditions. In fact, the Sony looks positively AWFUL in those low light shots over the water. It looks like they applied a very dense blue filter over the lens. Frankly, it's just awful. Maybe it was just those shots but if those shots are representative, "wow" is all I can say.

    For the record, I have a Sony sensor in my phone.

    Samsung has responded to this little bit of negative PR by S6 fanatics and it's what you would have expected. They admit using parts from different suppliers but that they all meet Samsung quality standards and therefore consumers should not notice any meaningful performance issues.

    In theory Sony sensors are superior.
    My guess is that Samsung has cutting down imx240's performance to bring a balance with isocell sensor

    Looks like it's Sammy, not Sony.

    I looked at the comparison photos. On some, I liked the Sony better and on some, I thought the Samsung looked better. It would be interesting to see a blind test (twin photos unlabeled). I'm guessing it would be a 50/50 split. I think the differences are slight and this is much ado about not much.

    I'm not sweating it myself, just mentioning that Europe or TMobile or whoever isn't limited to the ICOCELL. Right here in mainstream USA AT&T is also receiving shipments with the Sammy sensor. The comparison photos and various articles are comforting.
