    I know what the first mod I'm gonna want is ......

    MultiWindow. One of the few Touch Wiz features I really use. Any bets on how long it takes to get ?

    I never think to use multi window. The s4 had it & that seemed pointless. Note 4 makes more sense, but I've never really utilized it.

    I thought they were working on multi window as part of the core OS? Or was that just a rumor?

    Apparently it's not in 6.0
    When driving I have the map in one window and a music player in the other.

    I could never find a good use for it, or a good combination of apps. That seems like a pretty good use for it. The G2 had a multi-window feature.

    Yeah. I don't travel much where I need navigation, but when I do, I prefer full screen maps. My old car (now the wife's) has satellite radio, so I listened to that. With my truck, add long as I have a good playlist, I have controls on my Bluetooth connector & watch that are just as easy as changing the station.

    Not to mention I was in a bad habit for a while of accidentally shrinking apps when trying to pull down my notification shade on my Note 4 for quite a while. Still do it from time to time. Can't say I'll miss multi window, but that's my own fault for not finding ways to utilize to for my needs.

    I'm old school. I don't mind switching between apps. Haha

    So I ordered another case & some screen protectors from Amazon... at this rate I may spend as much on accessories as I have for the phone... and still have nothing to play with :oops:

    You will drive yourself nuts doing that. But 34 days is a bit extreme if you ask me. Two weeks after announcement should be the ship timeframe. Not a month and a half.

    I'm toying with the idea of getting just a clear silicone case, so I can still show off the aluminum while having at least protection from scrapes for the first little while of owning the device.

    I think they should ship before the update goes out to older devices. As I stated in another thread, the Nexus Twitter account keeps popping up as an ad in my Twitter app telling me to be the first to get Marshmallow by pre-ordering a 5X or 6P. I've done so. I still won't be the first to have it. Other Nexus owners are already running the official build.

    I have M on my Nexus 7. I love those ads.

    I can't believe the timing.

    I've got the older N7. End o the line for updates there. Can't say I blame them since Lollipop has its aggravating moments on that thing, but it's kinda sad.

    Meanwhile, I found out the other night that the wife hasn't accepted the latest security update on her '13 N7 when I told her that she'd have Marshmallow incoming.

    I know... can't help myself. After living with the Note II's lack of development after the first year, I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas Day!

    I also agree the 6 week wait is just cruel! First they spawn all the leaks to spur interest in the devices and then they make us suffer!
