    Was it an actual T-Mobile issue, or was it an issue with your particular unit? Did they offer (or did you ask for) a replacement S6 at the time?

    Wasn't there an issue with Wi-Fi calling draining the battery?

    That's exactly what I am talking about. Hopefully it is resolved as I just got rid of my 6 plus for a gold s6. Haha

    For me WiFi calling typically offers good battery life. In my case, the wifi access points are enterprise quality. I can imagine typical consumer access points may not offer same results.

    I find low cell signal areas to drain the battery noticeably faster (and I see the "cell standby" usage jump up).

    I was told by a Tmo engineer that since the S6 launched there were software updates pushed to the towers to address some issues, not necessarily specific to the S6.

    Supposedly 5.1.1 will include fixes to the cell radios and is expected to offer improved battery life. We shall see in about 1 month.

    Eh, decided to stay and picked up an AT&T S6 this evening. Better coverage in my area than tmo.

    Not fixed at all. Still on going, and so far no guaranteed way to fix it.
    Right now I am forced to keep wifi off to get decent battery life.

    Local T-mobile service leaves much to be desired.

    Correct. Not a single issue has been addressed or resolved since launch for T-Mobile S6's (which is shocking since they were first out of the gate - I've had my S6 for nearly 2 months now). It seems that the AT&T S6's had a recent update that fixed a number of issues but nothing at all from T-Mobile.

    Still living with the same list of problem but praying (hard) every day we get an update from T-Mobile!

    TMO is offering 64gb S6s for the price of 32gb ones from the 23rd to 25th for Memorial Day so now is as good a time to switch as ever.

    Telstra sent me this link. It looks like we're getting a bug fix update for the S6 on the 25th

    We've already gotten that update and that's not the 5.1.1 update that was being discussed. We have no ETA for the 5.1.1 update. It could end up being a while.

    What on earth are you talking about? The date of employment is the 25th making it hasn't been released yet. And where did I say it was the 5.1.1 update? I didn't. I said it was a bug update

    The quote you posted mentioned the 5.1.1 update, I thought that's what you were referring to, because the bugfix update has already been released and that link you posted shows that.

    The FOTA was been released on the 12th (as stated on your link). I downloaded the bugfix update last week. You can see in your link it says "Now deploying" - it's been out for a while now.

    Hence why I thought you'd be referring to a future update rather than wondering when an update would be released, when it's already been released.

    So just because someone responds to somebody they are referring to every single thing that has gone on previously. I even stated in my post that it was a BUG FIX. Not the update. The website states expected deployment is may 25th. Geez forgive me for opening my mouth

    ? I'm not attacking you, I genuinely thought you were referring to the 5.1.1 update. I thought that because the bugfix has already been released (a week ago), so I assumed you were talking about the next update - which is expected to be the 5.1.1 update.

    The website states that FOTA deployment for the bugfix commenced at 1pm on 12 May which as also been reported by Australian android media: Australian Samsung Galaxy S6 receives OTA update; what's new? - Ausdroid

    I think there's just been a misunderstanding between us.

    I had the device on launch day but returned it within the 14 day window. I was waiting to hear about the G4, but it didn't really impress me too much. I decided to go back to the Galaxy because even with the weak battery life it's still the best phone on the market imo.

    That's kind of the way I'm feeling too. I was an apple fanboy but the 6 plus performance just wasn't it for me. The screen and the camera on the s6 outweigh the poor battery life. And quick charging makes it an easier pill to swallow.

    Telstra doesn't agree with you. It's a different update

    Agreed. I had a great experience with the device the first time around, it was just the poor battery life I was getting. With quick charge and wireless charging it shouldn't be so bad, plus, I'm not adverse to carrying around a small battery pack for charging on the go.
