Internal Samsung file leaks revealing Android 6.0 features for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge
A leaked Consumer Consultant Guide meant for the eyes of Samsung employees only, reveals the capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge once the two handsets are updated to Android 6.0. The file contains information about some of the new features that Android 6.0 is bringing to Android handsets.

For example, Doze is a feature that puts your handset into a deep sleep state after it is inactive for a spell. Apps are prevented from running in the background. Phone calls and SMS messages will wake up your phone, but otherwise the unit will be sleeping and saving battery life. Google Now On Tap will bring you search results based on the content that is on the screen. Another new feature coming with Android 6.0 allows users to approve permissions for apps on a permission-by-permission basis. And don't forget the new collection of emoji that will available once the update is installed on your Android device.

More specifically, the file reveals that the lock screen clock on both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will be centered after the update. Speaking of the lock screen, the icons are given more color, and Galaxy S6 edge users will be able to make a number of changes to the Edge screen from settings. In Power Savings Mode, the notifications bar will be in gray.

Honestly though...I love Samsung and have had every Galaxy since the original S, but they barely do anything that is **innovative** in any way. Just gimmicky features that most people don't bother using.

Personally, I love many of those "gimmicky" features as I use them quite a bit. Which is why I'm always frustrated using vanilla Android (Nexus), close to Vanilla (Moto) and still rather basic skins like Sony's. So many things that I use are missing on those...

I honestly don't see how the worlds first curved display or flexible phones aren't innovative. And even then, you not personally using a feature doesn't mean that no one does. I used that edge screen constantly on the S6 edge, and for the brief time I had it used the S pen on the note 5 every day largely due to my job. But yes, as was asked… What companies are actually doing anything innovative? HTC? LG? Sony? Huawei? Oppo? Motorola? Higher resolution screens and improved overall internals aren't exactly innovative. That's refinement & iteration.

Gimmicky is the new innovative. At least Samsung believes in the "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" approach. AKA risk taking.

Unlockable Bootloaders killed the fun of having highly customizable Android phones.

Even there was existence of Develop versions of phones but they are not supported if they did not sell well. Developers would prefer exploiting the phones with most people using, because the more donations they would be getting.

So basically, with Android 6.0 GS6 is getting Android 6.0 features. Shocking.

Doze could be the real benefit in 6.0. Can't deny that the battery life is the only thing which I don't like in my phone. At least 20-30% are lost only in standby mode when many apps like Facebook, Gmail, etc. are syncing permanently. The other adveirtised stuff will be used probably by less than 10% of the users.

Better use some other 3rd party Facebook app. The official app from facebook, as well as G+ are wakelock nightmares. They destroy standby time of any phone.

just uninstall all 3rd party apps then, your phone will last much longer. and yes, it will not be different than your $50 feature phone too.
