networkn: I am feeling mightily aggravated by the lack of S6 Edge 64GB's. Feels like I have been waiting an age despite pre-ordering from Digital Mobile. 

Trying to decide if I just buy one outright from somewhere else or compromise on capacity and go 32GB.


Maybe wait for the Avengers version to release? ;)

Looks cool but I'd rather have platinum gold.

Gave up on the 64GB, opted 32gb and use the money saved for Spotify Premium. 

Was wanting some real world battery reviews please? Have heard fairly mixed results.

I was using HTC One M8 before and Edge is very similar to that.
You can expect - One FULL Day of extensive use .. with all services like Location, Bluetooth, Data, Wifi all in use and about 30 to 60 minutes on calls and continues email and message sync.

Hi all,
Can someone advise me which network is most likely to provide the fastest OTA?
I am with skinny at the moment. 
Also which network s6 has the least bloatware? 2degrees perhaps?

Thanks!

Got my 64gb model S6 64gb on Wednesday. Very happy with it. Just flies along. I get about 19 hours with medium usage which is fine by me. Even then a quick half hour charge gets me 50% so battery life not a major.




- Telstra HTC Touch Pro2 - Energy ROM WM6.5.5 20 Oct/Cyanogen Mod Froyo 2.2 - R.I.P
- AT&T Galaxy S Captivate 16GB on XT (now with brother)
- Samsung Galaxy S2 on XT- Runs ICS 4.0.3 Resurrection Remix 9.2
- Business Hours - Work In The Electricity Industry, After Hours - DJ/Turntablist - Will Scratch Vinyl For Free'
- What's next??? S3?

Get the handset for the network you are going to use the handset on! The handsets are not the same and the mobile networks are not configured the same,

I bought a 64GB Edge handset from 2D on release and it has zero provider bloat.  The usual Samsung apps are pre-installed, some of which can be disabled if desired.  The handset is also an unlocked G925i meaning it will get OTA updates when Samsung release them for that model.

Still pretty impressed with mine , Getting a good solid days use out of it before it goes on the charger at night. Must look into getting the wireless charger cause its a real effort to have to plug something in.

Hows everybody else's going ???
