    I'm curious if any of the S6 early adopters have noticed any slow down in their performance over time. Is your S6 as zippy as it was out of the box or has the typical Samsung Touchwiz woes kicked in?

    There were a bit of lag when I first updated to 5.1.1 but things are running very smoothly now. The battery is noticeably worse since that update, though.

    Verizon Galaxy S6 with zero slow down after two months. If anything it's too fast. Running Need for Speed Most wanted game with Twitch.tv live feed, 1080p movie, BubbleUPnP pushing movie to another phone and other background tasks with plenty of horsepower left for more.

    On. AT&T, used TW at first, very fast and smooth though more bloat and bulk could be removed. Installed Nova Pirme launcher and Tesla Unread, still no loss of performance.

    Hoping that this doesn't morph into a battery life thread, mine is not suffering from some of the issues causing such angst. Had two meeting sessions totaling five hours, still at 100%.

    Yes, seeing slowdown in the form of apps not being kept in the memory long enough, forcing them to fully reopen. Phone is great when it's after a fresh reboot or cache wipe.

    My S6 Edge is constantly reloading apps. It randomly crashes and reboots as well as having poor battery life to boot. I've always loved android, but this is ridiculous now.

    Still as fast as day 1. Had a couple instances in the last few weeks where the phone completely froze for a minute or two but just did a restart and all was good.

    Battery life still meh despite all my tinkering.

    Besides for whatever reason happened last night, my phone hasn't slowed down at all. Last night it, got real buggy and, I had to reboot it. That was the first time having to reboot my phone. I'm sure it had something to do with something I was downloading.

    I've had my verizon edge since May 10th, and if anything it has become more stable. Initially I had to reboot once a week, but now it's more like every 2-3 weeks.

    I have had the S6 since almost day 1. The first week was great. Honeymoon period.

    Since then, slow downs... lags... my old LG G2 was more reliable.

    I am just waiting for the next phone to come out during christmas. Maybe if I can't take it anymore I will look at the IP7. And I am definitely not an IOS person.
