    Considering I'm doing literally nothing on it would you be?
    Why is your screen on for over 3 hours when you say you aren't doing anything?? Obviously you're doing something.

    I'll be honest, from the numerous screen captures you've posted, I think you actually have a good battery with very high (unrealistic) expectations. You look like you could get 6 hours SOT with that screen shot.

    I truly don't see what's wrong with the stats in your screen shot.

    You read my posts yet you fail to read the point that I'm not complaining about those days where I reach six hours. Actually go back and reread my posts

    You JUST posted a complaint about your battery and included a screenshot of your battery stats as an example. The screenshot showed an example of normal battery use.

    I apologize for apparently being off-base, but I genuinely don't understand how else to interpret that post. I apologize for being disrespectful and I wish you the best.

    Believe me, I never look for excuses to spend money. Going back to iPhone wasn't free. Just couldn't deal with all the bugs. You know, maybe it's just I got a bad phone, but this was my THIRD Galaxy s6! The first two were the edge, and both stopped working! The screen stopped rotating on both of them. One within 2 days and the other one on the last day of the two week return policy (talk about luck!). Then I said the hell with the edge, give me the s6. But then I got the poor battery life and constant freezing and lag. :/ after 3 bad experiences it's hard to stay positive
    Honestly, where are you people with the numerous problems with your phones buying them from? Some guy on the street? I really want to know. I haven't had ANY of these problems like most of you are describing. So far I've had good battery time and no lagging or dropping of any apps.

    ill be switching back once the new iphone is out. android maturity is nowhere near where i thought it would be.

    my biggest issue now is i think the resale value of the s6 is gonna be terrible, since no one is even buying them new, let alone used in 3-4 months time.
    I disagree. By the time Android and Samsung fix all of these numerous "quirks" and "glitches" (as others have described) in the phone it will be one of the top sellers in the world.

    I expected news like this. When I went to the movies on Monday I saw not one not two but THREE ads for the iPhone 6. I had never seen so many ads for it ever. The most logical conclusion for me was that the s6 must currently be outselling it
    I agree. And Apple has had the best advertising and promotional help in the market. They've gotten free publicity and promotions ever since they launched this phone, whether it's in film or on television, or even on ads for other products. I walked into a fast food store the other day and they were promoting an "order your order on your phone before you get here" app. Guess who's phone was on the billboard? It wasn't labelled as an iPhone but everyone knows which smartphone it was, with its round home key. It's everywhere, and Apple doesn't pay a cent for all of this free advertising.

    Read my posts in the battery tips thread by erasat. My problems are with the inconsistency of the battery not the 6-7 hour days that I get

    There is actually a problem with the software on the s6 phones with the company I am with that only gives one or two bars of 4g signal to EVERY single device with that company. I had a conversation with tech support yesterday and they told me that they were apparently aware of it so now it's just a case of waiting to see if they push out a fix for it but in the meantime everyone with Telstra is experiencing weak 4g signal and due to this the phone is constantly searching for signal meaning inconsistency in battery life and sometimes battery drainage

    I bought all THREE of mine from Verizon, not "some guy on the street." And two were from different Verizon stores, so it's not like one store just had a bad batch. And no, the stores were no where even near each other.

    Well this issue isn't really a s6 issue then. Sounds very similar to what Sprint and Verizon does around my area. I don't think there is anything anyone at Samsung could do about it, except if you get far enough up the ladder with them for them to be able to straighten it out with your carrier.

    Actually it is BOTH their faults because that means Samsung gave my phone company the incorrect phone radio for 4g coverage and they BOTH need to work together to get a fix out

    I like the apps better on the iPhone. Androids versions of bother twitter and Facebook are so clunky. Though I admit I like how on Android any status or picture you post on your account automatically shows on the news feed instead of having to refresh. But twitter on Android is a nightmare compared to ios
    My God yes!!! I've tried almost every twitter app for Android and none of them come close to the ones on iOS.

    Like I've been saying for a while iOS only real problem for me has been customization, lack thereof. If iPhone allowed me to customize the UI as much as Android I'd sell my S6 for an iPhone {last one owned was 5S}. And no I refuse to jailbreak the device, just as much as I refuse to root my android.

    Just out of curiosity why do you refuse to jailbreak? I did mine last week it literally took 5 mins and you can customize the hell out of it once your're done.

    Jailbreaking actually can't brick the device. Apple devices are very hard to brick. If a JB goes bad you simply slap it on itunes and factory reset it then you are good to go.

    Which is why I'm so excited about the prospects of ios9. Apple are starting to open up more and more and as they continue to do so they are making my decision between an iPhone 7 plus and a sg7 harder lol
    I think that an open, customizable ios is basically... Android. The reason Android doesn't run as smoothly (according to some) when compared to ios is because of it's open, highly modifiable nature. So an open modifiable ios, I think will bring some of those issues ppl claim Android has over to ios.

    Ehhh... Idk. I googled and see stories about jailbreaking causing the phone to brick. I don't want to try it, especially since I just got this phone a week ago x__x

    Not necessarily. Your phone company can just as easily have borked the software for it with the right radio in it.

    AT&T did this on the Captivate and again on the Note II and flashing a different radio software fixed the problem after rooting it. When a carrier is involved, they are the ones who have the final responsibility to ensure that the reception is passable, not Samsung. Been down this road before with Samsung on both of those which is why I gave up on them pushing out a fix for this issue and dealt with the carrier.

    You need to take video of your signal deficiencies against another phone on the same carrier side by side and force them to escalate your claims. It has worked wonders for me before getting completely out of faulty phones and into something else.

    As aggravating as it is if you remain calm and professional about it, and can provide proof then they will have no choice but to remedy this for you, at least in the USA, so if you aren't then I don't know what else to say except that I am sorry you are having some serious problems.

    They probably jailbroke and they did some extra stuff to cause it. I used to be on iPhone and JB a lot -- a simple restore via iTunes works due to it wiping the entire phone / re-doing the software.

    I just prefer to use the phone the way it was intended. I have concerns that jailbreaking opens up potential leakage points for hacking opportunities and when i used to jailbreak (long time ago) i couldnt get app updates while the device was jail broken (not sure if this is still the case). Plus, you wont get the OS updates either...just a hassle and not using the device for how it was intended.

    You can still update apps and you will still get OS updates. It just breaks JB when you get an OS update just like root breaks from OTA OS updates on Android.

    You can still get app updates but I can understand where you're coming from. Jailbreaking has come a long way probably since the last time you used it. Its not nearly as much of a hassle as it used to be. Like I said mine took 5 minutes..literally and some of the new tweaks that have come out are so awesome it makes your iPhone 10x better.

    I have a 6 +, running 8.4 and I don't think it's possible to root or jailbreak as it hasn't been configured yet for this level of upgrade. if it were possible I would try it because the iPhone definitely needs a breath of fresh air. the stale, mundane-ness of the iPhone OS is what keeps me on Android.
