The RAM usage is much lower now on the S6. About 500 MB less compared to the S5 with 700 MB used. You can free up more if you root it and use Greenify and Disable Services.
For anyone wondering what the S6 looks like, it would be like if any Galaxy S had a baby with the Nexus 4 or Huawei Ascend P7. This will be a huge seller even outside the US. But for practicality, Note 4. S6 edge is for hipsters. Regular S6 is good enough for regular folks. But once the design starts to get tiring, you will start wondering where all your storage space went to. Note 4 is more future proof without any screen gimmicks of the S6e.
Saw a demo unit on our country but sad to say on a 32GB model the OS already consumes 15GB leaving at least 12-14GB of space. can anyone confirmt if that is the case on a regular model?

The S6 edge is the headturner. The only eyesore on both is the camera hump on the back. But seriously, the quality and aesthetics is still way better than any Galaxy S ever.
The S6 edge looks better but the S6 feels better in hand. Haven't seen all the color options. Only black and white. The white model has a cool shimmer/reflective effect when you tilt it. Don't hate it yet that soon. At least Samsung eliminated the bloat and it isn't like it has specs of the Alpha series with the fastest SoC in the market.
[deleted post]It's okay to prefer one brand to another. However please try not to bash or troll another brand. Also could you provide reasons on why you wrongly believe so. I can easily say S6 is the best smartphone of all time and back it up with reviews done on this handset.
[deleted post]Thank you we already knew S6 is the best smartphone currently in the market.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is the best looking and most technologically advanced smartphone of 2015.
It makes the iPhone 6 look like an ugly toy.
bob, 29 Mar 2015I keep hearing the word "hinder". It will NOT slow down apps once loaded. What is 1/... moreMight want to look at this
I've been a very satisfied Samsung Galaxy S user for a number of years. Started on the Galaxy S, upgraded to the Galaxy S II x, then the Galaxy S III....skipped the Galaxy S IV (because I was very happy with my Galaxy S III) and my last upgrade was to the Galaxy S V.
Before I purchased the Galaxy S V, I tried the Nexus 5. I hated that phone so much I ended up returning it and got the Galaxy S V. To make a tired point, I learned that I was happy with the Galaxy S series and shouldn't have tampered with what was working.
But I'm really put off by the fact that they took away the removable battery, there's no memory expansion slot & it's no longer waterproof.
It almost feels as if this is a downgrade. I've been a satisfied Samsung Galaxy S user for years and my trade to the Nexus 5 proved to be a mistake, but I don't think the Galaxy S6 is a wise investment. For the first time (ever) I'm considering an iPhone (perhaps the 6 Plus).
Samsung....you guys have made a horrible mistake. This is not the next big thing. This looks like the next big mistake. I'm sure your sales will plummet as a result of this boner.

If you compare S6 and S5 you will now for sure, loading videos. Also lots of plans come with 6gb data or more, so it's best to use it.

You do realize that every review says the opposite of what you're saying. gotta love apple fans trolling.
Samsung Galaxy manufactures,must know that producing phones without integrated radio is as bad as producing a bad or wast of time.Galaxy s7 must come with radio cos we buy phones to use and as well listen to information from radio at any where in time.

I already had the chance to try the S6 and can safely say that you guys will have to moderate your enthusiasm when you have it in hand. It doesnt look or feel premium and the blue tint of the display is way over on the cold side, not as good as S4 was. Too bad, Samsung did a good job to improve display after S3 but has npw fallen back to ridiculously blue looking whites. That combined with the same old cheap front makes sure the S6 loses when put side by side the iPhone 6.
