"The TouchWiz software on the new Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is silky smooth with no slowdowns. TouchWiz gets a lot of hate over perceived lag, but there is none on the Galaxy S6 edge and it features smooth Lollipop-like animated transitions, which makes the experience even better."
From now on, TouchWiz lag arguments are fraudulent. End of story. Period.
Great hardware/software makes the Galaxy S6 the best device on the market. It's powerful, fast, feature rich, and premium. Nothing else comes close.

I think GSMArena should improve its brightness testing for smartphons as i have read everywhere that iphone6 gote to 600 nits at max brightness and z3 goes till 700 ..they are claiming to be over 700 nits for iphone and 800 for z3. Moreoer gs5 is brighter THAN s6edge??? No way.
Does anyone know What model of Huawei he thinks of, when mentioning low light capabilities?
[deleted post]People don't care when they pay for a Ferrari, so those who actually are interested for this won't look at the price either.
And those who'll feel jealous but won't be able to purchase it will keep saying rubbish things, comparing Apples and Oranges as they have been doing for quite a while, for eg. Moto Maxx vs Note Edge, or something like that.

Also good and cheap can't be mentioned in the same sentence.
Anyway, I'm fascinated after reading the review. Took one hour and read every word (have never done that before!). Samsung indeed is way ahead of the competition here, 14 nm chipset already, jeez!
Camera quality is very very good I think. The NAND is 3 times faster than other flagship phones. Screen, well, unbeatable, get over that. The biggest shock actually is how less cluttered TouchWiz looks now, I guess Samsung is listening to me (and others of course), because I don't see any Smart features there, at least not in the notification toggles (I mean those useless Smart Pause, Smart Stay, Smart Scroll etc.).
I can't wait for the Note 5 honestly.
Great job Sammy, can't believe I just said that, probably the first time.
I'll go rather for Huawei P8 which has no and NEVER had protruding camera and nicely lies straight on the table with no wiggle..
Only 5.1" and qHD?
Just holding G3 and qHD is not visible just only on home screen..
MrMaz, 03 Apr 2015ordered by 64gb Emerald Green one todayArgghhh that must have hurt the wallet. Great device but a 64gb version will cost more than my mortgage !!
I believe the 14 nanometre processor makes all the difference in terms of power efficiency.
In any case, Samsung is way ahead of the competition. Best screen, best camera, best memory, best CPU, most advanced UI (multi window is quite useful as is customisable theming etc - touchwizz or not), best build quality.
Apple cannot even help but tap Samsung's processor and memory expertise.
Samsung has reacted positively to the slap it got last year. I hope other Android manufacturers (Apple is complacent thanks to its captured audience) hit back with even better devices....I am looking at you Sony.
It's too damn expensive
I wanted to replace my Galaxy S4 to this one,
But Ill buy me a good cheap Chinese phone
FM radio? You should be still living 10 years in the past. Who needs FM radio on a mobile when there is so many online?
Stereo speakers? That's phone, not a tablet. Put your headphones on. You can't really enjoy stereo sound without them on such small device.
I had an n8 before.. There was a developer app called sleeping screen for it that kept the screen always on.. It showed only the clock date alarm and charging notifications... What Samsung is doing is grouping together all the good stuff.. Kudos.. But the only thing i hate is having to pay a premium for getting the higher memory versions of the phone(or any phone for that matter). Not a fan of blinkfeed since data in my country is costlier than gold n diamonds
There was no audio comparison ??????????
But my goodness this is a beauty
TrinYa, 03 Apr 2015That superb battery life is just another reason why I feel S6 Edge is the flagship smartphone ... moreWell, GSMArena also updated the regular S6 battery life figures. They're the same.
That superb battery life is just another reason why I feel S6 Edge is the flagship smartphone of the year.
Wow look at those battery life figures.
Can't believe that a 1440p resolution screen and 2550 mAH battery has significantly better battery life than a 1080p screen with 2840 mAH batter.
