    Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure last year on the S6s for VZW, there was no Samsung browser. Ever.
    I've been using the Samsung browser for awhile now and I'm on Verizon. I just downloaded it off the Galaxy apps store.

    Ya know: the most likely explanation for not being able to download the browser from the Play Store is because Samsung hasn't updated compatibility for it yet. This isn't a problem if the browser is already installed which is why it's fine with other carriers.

    Edit: the last update on the store was Oct. last year. Just be patient and at least wait until it's updated before jumping to conclusions. Use FireFox or Dolphin in the meantime if you don't like Chrome.
    That doesn't explain why it would be on all the other versions except the Verizon one

    Verizon has pulled stupid stunts like this in the past. It's to the point if something's missing, and you mention it's a Verizon phone, people just walk away from the conversation. They've done this with Google Wallet, Samsung Pay, and the stock browser on the S6 from what I can recall off the top of my head.

    Looks like that's the right version. I downloaded mine off the Galaxy apps store so I'm not 100% sure.

    I'm oddly optimistic for the Play Store update coming this month.

    Verizon surprised me with the most timely Marshmallow update on the Note 5, so who knows!?

    There's also Adblock browser available through the Play store until Samsung updates the Play Store version of their browser. I got v4 of the Samsung browser on my Verizon Note 5 with the Marshmallow update and the ad blocking works very well. But then, Verizon always allowed the Samsung browser on the Note series. I'll hate to lose it when I get my s7 Edge. Samsung should use their market might to prevent carriers from messing with their phones. We'll probably lose the White Pages dialer integreation as well so Verizon can sell us Caller Name ID.

    I am SO glad I have excellent coverage by AT&T in my area. I hate Verizon.

    I would call samsung and ask them why its not there and ask Why you can't DL it.
    Maybe samsung decided to drop the browser and just let Chrome handle it.

    Sorry if this has been answered already, but if you want the browser just install via the APK.

    Edit: I just read that this application will only run as a system app. That being said, I wouldn't Blane Verizon I would blame Samsung for the way they made their app...

    The RSbrowser is probably much better to use, anyways. It is optimized for Snapdragon CPU's. Check it out on the Play Store.

    It's probably because technically these phones aren't out yet and Samsung probably has everything set for 3/11. Check the app store for it this Friday 3/11 and it should show up just like samsung pay for us Verizon folks because that's not available either right now.

    Samsung Browser v4 was preloaded on my Sprint GS7 Edge & it's fully functional. I cant understand why the other carriers wouldn't allow it.

    In my case, because it's Verizon being Verizon.

    I haven't seen it on the s line in a while. If it is very high on your priorities then you can get a note 5 which has the stock Samsung browser
    That mentality must carry over to the tablets as well because my Galaxy Tab S2 (Wi-Fi) came with Chrome pre-installed ...

    These are reason why i cant stand super hyped carriers like verizon. Sprint is hyped but they dont overpromote like they do. Sprint even has far less commercials than verizon

    HTC guy reporting in. When phone updated up recently it blocked my back compatibility to chrome 45 or something or chrome beta so the new security settings in chrome kept giving me a Dixie hellman key error. This is at work and I don't feel like being petty and asking the IT team to look into it and possibly fix. My only answer was to download htc browser which wasn't pre installed. But thank god it worked. I don't love it better than chrome but it let's me bypass the Dixie Hellman whatever and I can be on my jobs Wi-Fi as usual

    Maybe try using the HTC internet browser in the play Store if it isn't blocked

    Putting the stock samsung browser should certainly be doable once there's a root method, right?
