    Hello- so I am thinking about switching to sprint or T-Mobile and wanted to get either the s6 or s6 edge. I remember reading on forums about how sprint and T-Mobile s6 were having the most issues. So for the people that have s6 or edge on sprint and T-Mobile, how are your devices running?

    Thanks!

    I switched to T-Mobile and got the s6 about 3-4 weeks ago and haven't had any problems with my phone. Plus I believe most of the issues are Lollipop related anyways, not carrier.

    How's T-Mobile service? how's your battery life?

    Can't complain about either really. Service in my area has been really good and battery life I average about 4-5 hours screen time. I'm thinking once we get 5.1.1 battery life should also improve.

    I'm with Sprint and battery life sucks but it's subjective. I believe it's a Google (lollipop) problem, not an s6 or sprint problem like the other guy said.

    Mine lasts through the day with low to moderate use.

    Dang, that's actually good enough for me especially since it has fast charging option. Does it come with a lot of bloatware?

    Does it come loaded with a lot of sprint bloatware? How's sprint network?

    It does come with bloat but most can be disabled or uninstalled. Sprint where I live is great. All I can say is use Sprint's coverage map to see if it's good in your area or just try them out for a few days to see if it works for you.

    For some reason the sprint S6 battery life is worse compare to others.

    Carriers are highly area dependent -- I would suggest checking sites like rootmetrics.com to see how your city fairs with each one.

    I had sprint in nyc although I travel all over the country and world all the time. Sprint was so horrible and unusable when it came to data usage. Tmobile was so much better in most of my destinations that I pretty much jumped to about 15 - 20gigs a month of usage vs 3 on sprint because everything loads so fast! I would check your area and if tmobile has good coverage it is a no brainer that tmobile is by far the better option.

    Qwen Kim could I ask how you came to this conclusion? Is it based on any facts, if so please share them or are you just making an assumption?
