i had it on my s4 ...


case example.   my ps4 and tv can scan for dlna servers on my network, ie pc,  my s4, even my xperia tab z3 has a media server option ...


did someone forget to include it in the current S6 buld?

can share individual files via Quick connect i suspect ..but thats not what i'm after

Samsung USA has just offered the 64GB version for the 32GB price, [hint] be great if they did that here [/hint]. Started with T-Mobile but now offered to all. Meanwhile NL offering $100 off the black 32GB and $50 off the 64GB. The US 64/32 deal is effectively a $150 discount.

No band 28/700MHz. Depends on where you live/how long you intend to keep the phone for.

$100 is well worth it for band 28 if you travel around the country/plan to use it for a year or more.

gingereejit: JB Hi-Fi chucked in a Samsung Clear Cover when I bought the phone - looking for something with a bit more protection, I do like the look for the Spigen Neo Hybrid


I looked at stacks of cases,  I settled on this case.  Couldn't praise it anymore. Fits perfectly.  Looks good, and the buttons are best I've had on a cover before.

Is slim and doesn't make your phone much bigger.

Just seems such a shame to hide the back of the case when the colours look so good!

The S6 I bought was a 2D version (didn't notice till I got home) and I am on Spark. I didn't think there would eb an issue apart from Fast Dormancy but my reception is really bad compared to me S5 to the point it struggles to connect sometimes. 

I'm thinking of flashing the TNZ stock firmware but version seems exactly the same as I have  (G920IDVU1BOE3) anyone have any thoughts as it may not be the issue.

Garmin  Vivoactive 3

Can anyone with an S6 Test this for me.

I have turned smart stay on.  I set my screen timeout to 15 seconds for testing (turns out its more like 20 seconds).  Anyways.  It appears to be working, but I do not get the icon at the time like I did on my S4 which would highlight when it detected your eyes and smart stay was working.  Are others getting the icon or have they removed it?

But only on Red+ 24 month contracts. When they start doing it for the handset only then I will be interested.

Question re the S6. I have a wireless LG Qi disk I bought for my Nexux 5. What happens if I plug the S6 rapid charger into the wireless disk - will it cook it?
