Samsung GalaxyS6 32GB priced at Rs 49,900, 64GB for Rs 55,900 and 128GB for Rs 61,900
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 32GB priced at Rs 58,900; 64GB at Rs 64,900 and 128GB at Rs 70,900
Working in a mobile phone store in the UK, and having used both varieties of this device, I will give my opinion based on fact, not conjecture, like most of you.
Both varieties of this phone are truly dreadful, no amount of "premium quality build" will take away from this.
They feel fragile due to the glass on the front and the back, and the thickness. Thus will inevitably lead to many insurance claims, or repairs through Samsung (costing a fortune, no doubt.)
Three UK offer the S6 Edge starting at £49 per month with a £49 up front charge. I am unsure if this is just ridiculous pricing from Three or if Samsung have insisted that their prices are through the roof.
This handset, and the subsequent models, will ensure contract pricing in the UK is driven up. The mobile phone industry will stagnate due to lack of purchasing, as people will stick to their old handsets.
I use a Galaxy S5, and unless something changes, and soon, I will be keeping it for a long time. "Premium feel and cost" mobile phones are not what consumers want or need.

Samsung.RafaelReis, 22 Mar 2015Hi man,
Yes if you have that kind of problems ( one hand use and pocket ), and if you like sa... moreYeah , I'll be missing the s pen and the bigger screen ! But I'm also curious about the speed of the s6 edge over the note edge. With its new processor wonder of it will make much differently ! Can't wait till the phone is out , then we can see some user experience . Both are lovely device , Samsung has been doing a marvellous job lately !
Good work sammy !

Yes if you have that kind of problems ( one hand use and pocket ), and if you like samsung galaxy s6 edge you should try to make some money with your note edge !
S6 is so much sexy and more easy to use.. but you, ll miss your S pen :)
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2015wait for the z4 to come out, thats a phone worth the money Go and bleat on about the Sony on the Sony page not here
Raaj Mangat, 22 Mar 2015I have z3.my previous phone is m8 and upcoming definitely m9.I think Xperia z4 is not waterproof. The Z4 is water resistant, check Z4 specs on GSM. One of Sony's main selling points for their Xperia series is their water resistance, along with significantly better screen resolution and a more powerful front facing camera than the Z3
I seen both Samsung s6 and the edge and they both still look tacky! The software looks tacky and althought they have used different materials still a tacky looking phone, the HTC one m9 may not look good on paper but definitely more premium

But one thing to notice is S6 edge does not have major features like you see in note edge. If you are not dependent on note edge features, then you go ahead and buy S6 edge as that's what you like :)

I don't think you understand IP67 rating, it's only useful if you drop your phone in water. Water dropping on the phone will not result in phone dying. So by your logic pretty much all phones are gimmick. Please stop advertising other brands.
no water proofing!?
well! such a shame because all of this high tech beauty will be good for rubish bin IF this phone sees a splashes of water , never might trying to speak in the rain.
samsung failed big time by NOT ADDING water proofing feature here...
very sad , because otherwise it would have worth the money.
I wait for amazing Sony Z4
Don't even think about buying this gimmick...
Hi guys ,
I just got my note edge couple of weeks ago and now I'm in love with the new s6 edge .is it worth upgrading to? I can just sell my note edge and spend a little more to get this, but is it worth it ?
any opinion is great ?
Just feel like the note edge is so big for my pocket and one hand use .
Edward, 21 Mar 2015No.S5 was alot cheaper in my country Rs.60,000 when it was first release.And Note 4 was Rs.80,... moreWell India has different pricing schemes than europe/US, i think it may be related to its market/economy (meaning flagships can't sell by millions there, so they cost [far] more, it's same thing in some places i know) :
I did some conversions :
S5 16gb on release date here = 650/699euros = 43484/46762 RS.
Note 4 here costed 750euros on release = 50173 RS
S6 32gb here is priced at 709euros = 47431 RS
S6E 32gb is priced at 859 euros = 57465 RS
S6E 64gb that i want costs 959euros = 64155 RS
Those ammounts in euros are still a lot to us europeans, but your pricing schemes definitely means that S6s are reserved to certain class of people now in India.
Your prices are high yes, but that reflects what Samsung aims now just like i was saying on S6 comments : "premium device for those who aren't picky about little details" just like iphone buyers.
