    Nice, glad the new unit is working out for you. I am loving this one as well and still debating if I am going to sell my 6+.

    You already know that I am big fan of the S6 and S6e.
    But take your time and get to know the advantages and dis-advantages over the weekend before selling your 6+.
    Battery life if good for me on the S6e...but not as good as my 6+...its a bigger phone with a bigger battery.

    But I am truly enjoying using a phone one handed again!

    Since getting the phone last night. This has been my first real first battery usage. I have been beating it pretty hard doing things here and there but not too much. Was able to pull 4hrs SOT. I think that will work for me on the day to day use and im sure it will get better with a few more charge cycles.

    I can't believe the lack of people posting pics and videos taken with it

    How many charge cycles did it take for you guys before the battery seem to level off?

    I think i was probably a couple of days. Be sure to get rid of all the bloatware your carrier installed.

    Its Samsung. So 2-3 months + carrier = 4-6 months .... If were lucky.

    Nexus 6 doesn't have 5.1.1 yet, let alone Samsung.

    Question: wasn't there a feature that would allow you to wake the device with a hand gesture over it? I know Motorola does this but I could've sworn Samsung had something similar. Sometimes when I'm cooking and my hands are dirty I don't want to touch my home button. Just want the screen to light up so I can see the lick screen notifications.

    Anybody know if that actually exists? And where the seeing is? I can't find it...

    It's on Galaxy S4's settings called Quick glance. You swipe your hand over the screen when it's off, but it doesn't have on my S5 anymore.

    If the S6 was just a little bigger, I'd be fighting the urge to get it

    Yes. That's it! I knew I saw it somewhere. Thank you.

    I wonder what impact it'll have on battery.

    I found the setting after a week and haven't noticed any difference this week so it's a go for me.

    I find the S6 is good over headphones. But speaker wise it seems a bit weedy especially coming from a Nexus 6. It has neither great power or particularly outstanding clarity. I find even my iPhone 6 has more power in the speaker. I would say the loudspeaker is my main negative with the S6.

    Haha ;)

    The untouched beachfront is fantastic, don't have much of that left in Florida

    You make every camera look good, but damn those are great.
