So after 3 months of using the phone, I will write down my review.
Before the Android 6.0.1 the phone worked really good. I could play the best games with high frame rate. The battery seems to have very long life. I was playing a lot so I can recharge it in the evening and the fast charge is ultra cool! Super fast charging is awesome and with my newly bought powerbank- I even get my fast charge from the powerbank!
The preinstalled applications are cool. I use some of them and I find them cool. I use the 32GB version of the phone and so far I can't fill it all. I make the best picture quality and video, I have installed many applications and still the phone have a lot of space, plus you get OneDrive space for 2 years plus google space and you have a lot of cloud space.
If you want even more space for your phone, I suggest you install Flickr application. This is Yahoo application, connected to Flickr website, used from photographers from all over the world. You will get free 1TB !!! space and you can upload and upload and upload pictures with the best quality!
The sound is very clear during talk and loud enough so I can hear the person on loud places.
The screen is super bright! During day, even direct sunligh on my scree, I can see everything super clearly! This is just awesome!
Both cameras are cool and super quality. You get a lot of camera modes from the Samsung store application for free! They are pretty cool!
There is Ultra saving mode for the battery and believe me, the phone can and will last for days, maybe even a week! The good thing is that if you don't use your phone during night, the % of the battery do not drop. It just stays there.
You can dual screen and I found it pretty useful to check instagram and facebook at the same time or watch a video on youtube and browse the internet at the same time.
After the update to Android 6.0.1 the phone seems stable. There are no problems and it is even better, when it comes to call people or they call you.
The new Andorid is not so different, but my phone use less RAM and I have much more free RAM now.
Overall, the phone will surve you well. It is elegant and with light weight.
If you can get it- get it! You will like it!
There are more positive things to say, but I just can't remember what else. Oh, well. Have a nice day!
after root and install noble rom(latest), my phone better than galaxy s7 hahaha samsung s6 awesome phone!!!

[deleted post]It's my wish. Don't bother about it. Take concern & consider about my issue only.

You need to go to Setting -> About device, here you can find the exact model.
Then you go to "Specifications" on this page, you will find all sort of models for S6.
Gobal version is more for countries that Samsung do not bother to create a model for.
As each country do have it own specs due to the infrastructure of type of network.
That is how Samsung have to create for 1 or more countries.
So, check your model and check if there is an available updates or not.

May be you need to check with your ISP on your "Access Point Names", as it may have a wrong setting. Then you may either manually do it yourself if they give you the details setting Or download from their websites.
This could be as APN has input wrongly.
So get the correct setting from ISP and do the setting yourself or thru SMS and you need to install it if they send you by SMS.
Then no need to go to Samsung.

The staff just remove the SIM card & battery, and never asked how it crack.
As it is still under warranty.
If ask, as i was prepared to say, just crack by itself.

Alternately, you may have to go to the service centre to check on this.
My upgrade was successful without any issue.

But, my biggest problem is signal has automatically Switched between 2G 3G and 4G during access the internet. For ex, while watching videos on YouTube it's automatically switched into 2G in sometimes at the time I couldn't watch that video fully and of course I couldn't access website too. This is my biggest and serious problem in my S6. Actually I want to know about every S6 users having like this options in network mode as I got after updates marshmallow?

But after that updates complete, I don't find the 3G only option in network mode. There is three options only available such as, 2G only, 2G/3G Auto connect, 4G,3G,2G Auto connect. What to do?
Rajiv, 19 Apr 2016Does this support storage expansion?You can use OTG as additional storage.
Just get an OTG, but do note that not all USB cable are for data.
Test it before you pay.

Did you do any updates &or install any apps.

Did you do anything during the upgrade, such as wifi connection failed, interruption, answer call, etc; if not, then the upgrade is not complete.
Maybe you need to do reset the phone.
This happened to me for S5. Having 2 S5 (16GB, 32GB) the 16GB became problematic and after reset it is fine. For the 32GB S5 has no issue.
