    I still use Quickpic, it has the settings option to rotate with the screen. Quite handy!
    Quickpic works.
    Thankyou.

    Samsung deal Breakers for me:

    Fixed and poor battery -> Limited ife
    No sd card
    Extremely protruding camera that is very fragile for damage
    Phone needs a bulky case to protect the camera and the glass thus loosing from its beauty

    Story to hear that. I came from the GS4 on AT&T and have no issues with battery life easily making it through a day with moderate use. Have 50 GB free and don't miss the card slot. It is one of the fastest and smoothest phones. Totally agree with the camera hump not being flush. Always encase my phones any way. Any time they have gone commando, dings and scratches which are even more possible with a glass and metal phone. Just my opinion based upon my own past experience and not meant to be judgmental or offensive in any way.

    There are a number of the other great options out there like the M9 and the G4 if you are still looking.

    They may do smart manager one day but download booster will forever be disabled on AT&T.
    I'm not on AT&T but why are they so insistent on disabling it? I personally wouldn't use it since I avoid downloading as much as possible when I'm not on wifi, but I could see a benefit to both the consumer and them by enabling it.

    Velis is great. I love it. Couldn't ask for a better auto brightness utility.

    It replaces the stock one. And you can adjust the auto brightness to what ever levels you want. Unlike the stock were it is fixed for sertain light amounts. The stock autobrightness on my phone is to low inside . But with velis I can adjust it to what ever level I want it to go to inside or out.

    Also for me it's been a lot more stable and consistent compared to stock.

    Yes my stock autobrightness sometimes gets stuck or don't adjust sometimes. But velis has worked 100 percent of the time so far . I haven't had to touch my brightness setting since installing it. Set it up and forget about it.

    Is it a huge app or resource intensive?

    0 impact on phone. The only way you know it's even installed is when you pull down settings menu and see velis under brightness that's it.

    The battery life is driving me nuts on this phone. Especially coming from the iPhone six plus. It is incredible to just sit there and watch it drain in 4-5 hours of on screen time even with all the settings changed. It got to the point where I got so fed up I reset the device, put the black picture as my wallpaper and lock screen, set Nova launcher. I am so over it. Thank goodness I still have my iPhone six plus too
    4 to 5 hours screen on time is what I get on my Droid Turbo O.O

    Have you had some serious scratches on or near camera?

    I haven't had a single ding, scratch or crack on any Android device as they have all been adorned with an Otterbox Defender. The device that I had the issues were my RIM devices. Bumpers and TPU as well as TPU hybrid cases didn't help. One of my RIM devices went commando and dropped out of my pocket getting out of the car.

    1. Auto brightness - playing a bit with 'Lux' app
    2. Battery life. For S2 I got some replacement and it was good. But with non branded replacements it is a roulette...

    When using my fingerprint sensor the screen goes to sleep too fast or it will register my print unlock then go to sleep.

    Do you think its fair or even accurate to compare these two phones in terms of battery life. 6 Plus has a 2915mAh battery with a 1080p display vs 2550mAh on the S6 Edge 2k Display. Far more pixels to move and a smaller battery as well.

    Having owned a 6Plus for 3 months I can say it doesn't take much to run that battery down either depending on what you are doing.

    LOL...that's the whole point. Samsung's decision to go with a 2k screen and then put a smaller battery in their "flagship" device was curious at best.

    There's bias and then there's numbers.
