T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge to receive OTA update out of the box

T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge to receive OTA update out of the box
Let's look into the future. Its April 10th and you just picked up your T-Mobile branded Samsung Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Hands trembling with anticipation, you turn on the phone and...are immediately hit with an OTA update. Weighing in at 179MB, the update offers stability and performance improvements, new and enhanced features, and bug fixes according to the rather bland changelist. The new build number will be UVU1AOCG.

T-Mobile and Samsung are updating the phone the first time it is turned on as a way to prevent issues from popping up right out of the box. So while you might be mildly annoyed that you won't be able to use your pricey new handset for a few minutes while the updating process takes place, keep in mind that the update is making your phone run better.

So far, the update appears limited to T-Mobile's version of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. Pre-orders are being accepted for both devices with the Galaxy S6 priced at $679.92 (32GB), $759.99 (64GB), and $859.99 (128GB). Well-qualified subscribers can buy the 32GB version for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $28.33. The 64 and 128GB models can be purchased for 24 monthly installments of $27.50 after a $99.99 down payment is made for the 64GB model and a $199.99 upfront payment is made for the 128GB model.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge will cost you $779.76, $859.83 and $959.83 for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, respectively. The 32GB Galaxy S6 edge is priced at $0 down for well-qualified buyers, with 24 monthly installments of $32.49. The 64GB model is $99.99 with 24 monthly installments of $31.66. The 128GB version of the Galaxy S6 edge will cost you $199.99 upfront with 24 monthly payments of $31.66.

I promised myself I wouldn't spend more than the $750 I spent on my Note 4 on a phone ever, but if there is a Note 5 Edge that is very similar in style to the S6 Edge, I might have to renege on that promise. The S6 Edge is one sexy beast.

I messed with one at Best Buy today and you're right on. It's the coolest phone I've ever used.

Yeah. It's honestly the biggest "wow-factor" I've ever felt when playing with a new phone for the first time. Every new flagship has a wow-factor of their own, but when I played with the Edge a week ago, I was blown away.

Sexy? More like déjà vu.

Deja vu is what we all said when the iPhone 6 came out ativ s 2012 and m8 fit you know apple has to wait 3 years before copying so the idrones don't remember it from something else

Well, I'm not an Apple fan. However, but you have to admit he has a point. You have to look at the facts and make a judgment. Samsung always made plastic devices, now using premium materials; non-removable battery, Samsung devices mostly came with removable; finger scanner on the home button; similarity of the speaker grill; no SD card support; and of course now you Samsung pay, is that the brother of Apple pay? Only reason is not running iOS, Apple will not have it. Listen, if it quacks and walks like a duck......I'll stick with new Nexus, no clones for me.

iPhone trolls like you can never talk about deja vu. Not when you've been essentially buying the same device since 2007.

There's a massive amount of fail radiating from your comment.

No phone release has ever had any more deja vu than the iPhone. The exact same for 8 years straight.

i dont understand why you guys think is sexy the edge screen, I like the S6 way more than the edge and dont see anything useful about the edge screen, and yes I worked around them all the time so I had plenty of time to play with it, but could not find anything appealing about it, feels awkward to hold and offers almost nothing for it to have a screen like that, in fact if the glass gets broken the replacement is expensive. I still pre-ordered but the S6

well sexy mostly doesn't have anything to do with what you mentioned, its more of looks.

true but my take is that is 100 bucks more for looks? no thanks I rather pay the same with more storage on the S6. I dont see the usefulness of having the edge screens, thats all, all in all the S6 flies, great performance, same as the HTC One M9 which I also pre-ordered heh.

S6 and S6 Edge have not made it to my country yet >.

A couple of things I noticed when playing with the S6 edge: 1. Contrary to what some may believe, the UV sensor is not included. 2. Unlike the Note Edge, the S6 edge's curved portions do not extend beyond the 1440x2560 resolution. So, you're only getting 1440p as opposed to 1600p for the Note Edge. 3. The metal frame for the S6 has a very faint "peak" that runs around all the way around. In other words, the metal is not completely rounded off. The S6 edge is smooth all the way around. 4. The S6 edge feels smaller because it is. Even though it's slightly thicker, it's narrower and has the curved edges.
