Wheww, finally got this phone, S6.Edge, which is the variant of S6. Both phones.should be the same except design so.I am gonna share my thought here as well. Went to a shop with my buddies to buy, and the S6 Edge I got is Green Emerald, really nice~looking. This is probably the best phone I have ever used. Ok I am gonna share my thoughts on using this phone here. (I am writing this using my S6 Edge, very easy to type compared to other phones). The phone is very beautiful, and I really mean it. The camera is very good, took some for testing. And it is kinda fun browsing sites on this double curved screen, some of the texts shown on very left and very right, that you have to scroll it left and right when reading articles. Also I have watched some music video, the sound quality and video quality are decent. Shoud not spend so much time waiting for Iron Man ver., cuz this one is good. Anyone here also using Green Emerald..？BTW I checked already and my camera is Sony one, not Sammy one. I wonder if IsoCell is better in taking better pics than Sony one. Another thing I would like to.point out is that everytime when I charge my phone for around 15~20 minutes, the phone feels really really hot. Does anyone else also have this kind of problem? In conclusion, this is the phone that deserves respect...because of what it is...and I am also waiting for Note 5, must be another exciting phone like this phone...
I have not had a more terrible phone & I'm not obsessed with running out and buying the latest phones every time a new one comes out. It's not been a full month since upgrading from a S3 to an S6. I toggled between the The Note & the S6 and now believe I should've gone with my gut feeling!
The S6 keeps freezing up when I'm in the middle of toggling through pages, watching videos, using camera, or simply entering my phone for use! I went to my local store to get help with the issue and the Rep told me that there's no way to remove battery or SD. Uh NO! WHo does that?!?! That's poor quality making for such reputable company-Samsung!
I've tried rebooting my phone time & time again, as the Rep suggested but that doesn't fix the issue at all.
Samsung, either fix the debugging issue, recall the phones and give us replacements, or, give us options to exchange or upgrade of our choice to that which is compatible within price range of make & model.
Get it together!!!! I only upgraded my make & model due to business transactions with Apps that run on my phone! It's important to keep business by continuing in integrity, IF YOU'RE GOING TO COMPETE!!
Fix the issue with your product & your customers!

Newer gorilla glass doesn't always mean better. Gorilla glass 2 is more resistant to shock but not to scratches. Gorilla glass 4 is more scratches proof but it also make the glass more brittle than its predessessor. Higher resistant to scratches equal to loss of durability and more brittleness. Cornings put more tension on the glass so to make it scratch resistant but the tension build up made it weaker.
If you love a camera phone then this is the best. Camera and display is outstanding. Battery backup is little less but ok.
This phone has been disappointing since day 1. Wireless charging is so flaky that the screen turning on and off seems to kick it out of charging mode. Constant need to reboot the phone to make the camera work. In very bright light, a dark streak down the screen on the left side. The phone gets hot to the touch doing simple tasks like checking GMail. Battery life so short it's making my Nexus 5 look attractive again. God awful Samsung bundled software. I wish I could go back and undo this purchase, it was the worst one I've ever made. Never again.
S5 a better phone.
S6 = No SD Card Slot + None removable Battery + Smaller Battery and usage time + Slipper Iphone Glass Back + Headphone Jack on the top + Apps not in A-Z but scattered and cant be sorted + Cover is not intergrated like S5
If I wanted an Apple I would have Bought an Apple. Think for yourself Samsung or this will be the last I buy and seriously not happy, I have my S5 with all my music on the 64GB card and about to use anywhere with water or the beach unlike my new worst phone.
Disappointed, also my Sister now has an apple due to the SD card missing. Great.
I'm so furious by the low quality of this phone and don't think I'm guna buy this sh** in the future.
Ok! I did tons of test and research on this. And honestly was impressed by all the reviews out there on internet.
So have bought this from mid of May. Was pretty good until today that i just realized something really interesting. The glass used for S6 is DEFINITELY lower quality of my S3's glass !!!! Because.... I dropped my S3 like 100 times w/ case on the gravel/pavement/ all kinds if hard surfaces u can imagine, and the glass was still like the first day except the time it got dents by falling on some sharp gravels which is acceptable.
But this time!! S6 fell on grass with a protrctive case and when I was cleaning my phone saw all the 100 (not deep) scratches on its screen!!!! THIS IS INSANE!! I SIMPLY WASTED CRAZY AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR A PIECE OF CRAP!!
How can Samsung justify charging over $100 USD for 32GB increase in storage capacity. Samsung is outright ripping off it's customers by not having memory expansion slots in their new flagship phones. Move along folks there are better deals to be had. You wouldn't notice any difference, and this is coming from a long time Samsung user.
I can see that galaxy grand prime have 90% daily interest just 1% behind gs6. I have galaxy s6 but also bought grand prime too. I can tell you the availability of sdcard slot and removable battery is wonderful. The 5" screen is almost same size with gs6 despite not being quadhd. It consume less power with it lower spec and amazing 2600mah battery. I bought it as a spare phone while using my note 4 for work. My gs6 is still new and not much use except for camera and watching high quality 4k video.

I bought one new in April, the release date. It failed within 3 weeks, would not boot. Sent a replacement. It failed June 8, same problem. I do not need a phone that is unreliable, and I doubt that you do, either. Also, fingerprint recognition is dicey.Camera is good, but not worth the aggravation.
Does this S6 have a lock/unlock things in it? Well I will buy it from Dubai UAE and use in Bangladesh. So, will I need to unlock it once it arrives in here? Please answer if someone have any idea about, thanks.
Pop, 09 Jun 2015Why the hell Are you talking about laptops and Chinese products?... Post your review about the... moreS6 > S5. Anyways, can't you wait a little bit for more flagships to come out this year?
Pop, 09 Jun 2015Why the hell Are you talking about laptops and Chinese products?... Post your review about the... moreI have both S6 and S5, depending what your iphone model is, the choice will be up to you :
S5 has a bit better battery life than my S6 in same usage conditions (and same OS : lollipop), not talking about websites comparisons but from personal experience. This can be explained because it lacks the permanent limiting options for power saving existing on S5.
Globally S5 has more functions compared to newest touchwizz on S6.
Some examples here : www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26798
But S6 is just faster in everything for a better android experience (stock android disappoints many since it lacks many default features that people have to look for by adding apps from the store).
Photos are really better in low light and at nights (you can take outdoors night photos with no flash with just moon light or another weak light source).
Speaker at bottom is less muffled than on the back.
For the rest you can read every comments from others.
Both devices heat, by charging or in moderate/heavy usage, that's normal, they have fast cpus like any flagship.
Why the hell Are you talking about laptops and Chinese products?... Post your review about the S6 ... Im changing from iphone to either S6 or S5 and like to know if S6 would be the best choice... I dont want to buy a chinese laptop
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2015They both are made in Taiwan so, its basically chinese smartphone. Asus and HTC is well known ... moreAlso Acer. Asus made some laptops, not bad at all. Used to think Acer better, but now it changed. But if you ask me, I might choose Samsung laptop over Asus...^_^
As I know Samaung is KOREAN. And yes Asus & HTC are Taiwanese. The question is who's better among of them?
