They didn't really add anything very interesting other than mucking up the naming of the SD card. Pretty underwhelming TBH.

Ditto, very smooth update.

No adverse effects (like poor battery life) as reported by some. In fact probably better battery life, especially in standby.

As for the SD card, I reckon the naming is really useful. I use X-plore & I now see 'SanDisk SD Card' instead of SDcard_1 or whatever. While some may want the contiguous card memory that can be part of MM, I'm quite happy seeing it as a separate disk, but there are still apps (Excel, Acrobat) that won't write to the ext SD card.

I started wondering about the Marshmallow memory management (Adaptable Storage) and as to whether having contiguous memory would be beneficial for apps like Excel which still refuse to save to an ext SDcard.


However. it seems that LG are not alone in their approach and Samsung also treat the internal SD and Ext SD as separate entities in the new S7.


Found an interesting article and comments here, the balance of which imply that we are better off with the LG & Samsung approach for the time-being. Some interesting stuff in the comments, & iKrontologist seems to know what he's on about, but I'm not technical enough to vouch for that.
