  5. The s6 updating process of nougat is happening pretty well across the countries, with little or gaps from one region to another. Amidst all the s8 sales and orders, kudos to Samsung for managing this well

  6. This update has been an unmitigated disaster for my phone. I have zero messaging, every panel takes forever to load, if it does at all. The phone has turned off or restarted more time than I can count. I tried re-sitting the sim card, no help. I cannot wait to unload Verizon, they offer zero help to their customers. it would be nice if they actually had help available without a 30 minute hold or a website that dealt with these issues. My S6 is a 128gb and my note 4 can run circles around it. It would be nice if you could tell Verizon no thank you to system updates but you cannot.
