...Hang on - is the edge SMALLER (height wise) than the S6??
2 words - drop test
Good luck Sammy
NYX mobile i like Samsung Galaxy s6 edge it is very smart phone and it is wireless charging very good
Best phone from Samsung
The body is disappointing. The water resistance of the S5 was neat.
The "premium feel" thing is absurd. Most have a case to protect the device. Even then, plastic is much more functional and usable. It was nice that samsung bucked the trend toward shallow and fake meaningless features such as a metal body.
If Samsung make later S6 Edge version(we know they do such things)with removable back, they will own the whole market. (SD support and removable battery, please)
Especially the gold one to make it with brown leather back. Wow , it will be a looker.

does anyone else see a problem with this?
The S5 was promoted in TV ads and other promotions as being so cool with having the "quick change" battery and that apple users were all "wall-huggers" Now they are basicly saying apple was right all along and want to be like them sooo bad....
I read throught these articles and I see one comment pop up again and again. "Samsung have copied Apple" Without seeming like a biast Samsung enthusiast I would like to point out that Samsung have had curved phones predating Apples existance in the phone market.
When you look at the phone market all that the developers have done is listen to the consumer market and adapt their devices to meet the needs. If that means they look simular that is the way it is going to be. Heck if that's how people feel why not say oh gosh Apple havecopied samsung they have camera on their phones and the ability to send texts.

The touch delay is caused most by the animation time which is usually set to 1.5 or 2(seconds) I own a galaxy grand 2 dual sim and a galaxy note 3 and all I did was activate Dev mode...went to the animation setting and set it to .5 or 1 and the difference was noticed when I restarted for the settings to take effect.
People have to understand factory android settings aren't always uber awesome but when you start slapping on ur own preferences you see the difference.
for me the funniest side of this story is how you all samfans made fun of apples camera potruding. now your s6 came out and it cant even sit on a table it looks bent. ok fingerprint scanner is an obvious solution. but the design of the sides you don't see a iphone in that?????????
why cant you for once say: yes, Samsung copies apple as much as it can.
you say how many bar phones can you design. well if LG HTC, Motorola, Lenovo, Sony, Nokia and other can make different designs why cant Samsung. and the design of speaker is a total ripoff. and the edge thingy I would love to see how your phone will look like after a year of usage
And here we read the initial comments from a trusted companion , and they are quite promising. I personnaly believe that Samsung has released the cat among pigeons. I think people here at gsmarena are ignorant or they think everyone fool, by barking on SD cards and removable batteries without taking into account the amount of huge memory options being provided or the new in house SOC which is less power hungry. People should rationally put there comments by digging the facts rather without any emotional outburst. The truth is that as benchmark results show galaxy S6 is way ahead than rest of the pack and design wise looks and feels more gorgeous and is the reason that it was declared as the best phone of MWC 2015 by gsmassociation at MWC 2015. For those barking for SD cards and removable batteries why not not look beyond Samsung and apple.
Those pictures aren't good. High noise,and the colors are saturated. What happen? Is it the chipset wasn't able to optimize the camera module capacity?
Already got a free Spigen Rugged Case and Neo Hybrid for my S6 due to promotional codes ;)
darkraver, 06 Mar 2015The whole front, the side button placement, the bottom, the build, the fingerprint scanner pla... more--The whole front
Looks like the S3..
--the side button placement
This has been the same on every S series device, you could say iphone copied a lot of android devices by finally putting the power button on the side
Sorry? Just because the speaker and 3.5mm HP jack is there? try again, lots of devices do this
--the fingerprint scanner placement
Again, it just replaces the same button that has been on S series for forever, it is the best logical placement for it
--earphones look almost exactly the same
all earphones look exactly the same
AGAIN.... SEVERAL DEVICES have had this before... How long have you been around the mobile world?
--the internal memory solution
-- and pricing
again.... lol... and AGAIN, most flagships are this price..
So as you can see, you are very, very wrong...
I've switched from Nokia N8 (symbian) to Samsung (android). All I want now is get to rid of it as soon as possible. Samsung is "never ever" quality phone and android itself is one big bloatware with malware underneath.
Its Realy Amazing
As i surely appreciate Samsung's efforst into trying something new, the biggest dealbreaker(at least for me) when buying any kind of android is the touch input delay being way too big compared to iPhone.
But somehow, everybody misses this in their reviews, and some of you are denying this happens by looking at numbers on internet ("ah, 50 ms delay, pls explain how it is bigger than iPhone's", etc). I dont know if this depends on Google or it is a hardware issue(which i dont think).
Phones i had: GS1, GS2, iPhone4S, GS3, iPhone 5, LG Optimug G, Nokia Lumia 630, LG G2, Iphone 6(current one). My personal opinion is that iphone offers the best compromise between everything.
Looking forward to see if the touch input lag issue is solved in GS6.
Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge reportedly facing touchscreen issues... Don't buy now.
Please read this links..
Battery endurance and price of each memory capacity upgrade will sho, worth to purchase it or no! I like iPhone but do not buy - overpriced
