Dude in the video needs to speak up! He can low talk when hes not working.. jeez..
Note3AlphaNote4, 04 Apr 2015The specified 470nits is based on the brightness bar to the max.
If you put it to Auto Brig... moreI've compared screen brightness of this S6 with the Note4, S5 & iPhone6 and I promise you - it was massively brighter than any of them. No exaggeration.
Not sure if that was due the other phones being used as display models for longer but the difference was astounding.
My old Note2's screen was pathetically embarrassing :S
"The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (and S6 for that matter) is the fastest mobile phone you can have at the moment and with 64-bit support in place this should remain the case for some time to come. The flagship offers top notch performance for any use case and may not be surpassed in 2015, looking at just the 5" size (obviously the Note 5 is coming and should be a bit faster)."
Fantastic! This is how a 64 bit beast should perform! Leaving no doubt who's boss. I'll bet that the competition didn't anticipate this kind of destruction.

vikram90, 04 Apr 2015I think GSMArena should improve its brightness testing for smartphons as i have read everywher... moreThe specified 470nits is based on the brightness bar to the max.
If you put it to Auto Brightness, the display would reach uo to 700nits at its brightest possible. That is how all the AMOLEDs work in the Galaxy range right from S4 to S5 and Note 2 to Note 4.
Everyone, including Gsmarena seems to keep on forgetting the one main differentiating factor of the latest Samsung flagships that utilize the full potential of that QHD Super Amoled displays for the human eye and for the human enjoyment. The one really amazing futuristic feature that many still haven't realized has already become a reality. It's the virtual reality feature with the Oculus powered Gear VR! Honestly, that alone would make me buy one of these, and all the other great features mentioned in this review that come with it are the bonuses.
Truly superior one of a kind device in every way. Samsung nailed it with this one
FreezeGame, 04 Apr 2015Couldn't have said it any better.Thank you. Wish it wasn't true, but we live in a World of children masquerading as adults.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2015Yes, but the most recent rumor stated it'll be used for the Note 5.
We'll find out later th... moreIt is all rumors so it is possible. I doubt it, but obviously I could be entirely wrong. It could also be that maybe they will custom ARM cores in the Note 5, and in fact for 2016 have their own completely custom cores.
So they produce their own arm cpu's with their superior wafers, make their own camera sensors which is easily going to be used in the future on their devices, their own image processor, their own lens, their own ram and memory, their own modem, the displays, and so forth.
Soon will be making their own gpu and cores as well.
And I really hope with their Isocell they use larger pixels on a larger sensor. Low noise pixels that are larger and less crammed.
We shall see. Let's hope for greatness.

We'll find out later this year.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2015Yeah, that Samsung mongoose core rumors for the Note 5 peaked my interest. I'll wait late this... moreMost reports say their full on custom cores won't be ready for testing "or production" til 2016.
Reports are also scattered with saying they are making their own custom core as in license arm blueprints and modify. While some say as I'm completely designing their own...which I doubt, but would be awesome.
However we should at least see a stronger Exynos in the Note 5 possibly with a higher clocked mp10 Mali. Or maybe even the T880.
FreezeGame, 04 Apr 2015"The TouchWiz software on the new Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is silky smooth with no slowdown... moreIt's never been as big an issue in the first place. Especially the past couple generations. The S3 even still runs very solid.
Bit people still claim that all the lag in the world is Touchwiz. Just like they still make the saturated claims in Amoled. Just like still saying it's an ugly device. Just like the s even plastic was never bad build quality and aside from the rim in fact used premium materials that were more durable.
People are just jealous and always going to hate. The internet is still going to be filled with iOS users saying android does nothing but lag but iOS is perfect and android users saying it's all Touchwiz and its alot while ttheir favorite brand runs perfect...when in reality all OS's have hiccups.
ithehappy, 04 Apr 2015Absolutely.
Also good and cheap can't be mentioned in the same sentence.
Anyway, I'm fas... moreWhile I agree to the point of you get what you pay for and the S6 has the most advanced and expensive tech. You are completely wrong to say good and cheap cannot be in the same sentence. Even great and cheap can be. Obviously you won't get the S6 cheap, unless you count how decently it's priced on us contracts.
And yes. Very excited and worried for the Note 5. I think Samsung will try to improve on the design, but also will recognize that Note users are more power users and noon removable back, while looks stunning on the S6, would really turn up the hate.
Hopefully they add enough pins to use full speed memory and add the SD slot and get water protection in with a uab 3.0 return. I sadly doubt there will be stereo speakers. And add a larger battery or else lol.
Ethos Evoss, 04 Apr 2015I'll go rather for Huawei P8 which has no and NEVER had protruding camera and nicely lies stra... moreYou mean one that has a smaller and weaker camera sensor placed in a different spot where it can use more of the device thickness for a sensor? Good for you
Daaaaaamn that's one beautiful phone. And that battery life is excellent for a QHD display and 2600mah.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2015Think it's a lie we need real testers who owned it weeks...Of course you do. Even though it's only logical considering how much more efficient most of the parts are. And devices like the Alpha, QHD S5, the Note 4, and so on only further back it up. And the lower score was from a prw production unit which many other sites found to last longer than gsmarenas original finding.
