Got the 64gb edge variant a few days back,works fine and has no freezing or extreme heat ups,but the back stays warm even during moderate usage.
I've read a bunch of owners complaining about a pink tint problem on their screens but i got one hoping that I would get a perfect phone but I had the pink tint on mine as well.
I really don't want to go through all the returning and exchanging process which could take weeks and would ruin the device more under further examination.
The indian version i got came with a sony sensor for the rear cam.
The Samsung isocell sensor on other variants is kinda similar to sony but the pics seem better in it.

I do never believe that those are "unsignificant". Sammy service center just told me that your s6 is OK and do not install many apps if you stop issues. Isnt it funny? I just want Sammy to be serious with the complaints and fix them asap.
exynos also heat up as snp 810...
my s6 edge heat up very badly...

What you are saying is not exclusive to Samsung but to all manufacturers. I work for an isp and we have same policy, we don't recall hardware because there's something unsignificant (not functionality breaker) if you do "this and that" which isn't in normal daily usage.
I don't see any of what you say on my unit during my daily usage and i don't need to maximize brightness on a white picture to look for it. There's no point unless you like to look for defects in everything.
I don't defend Samsung there, but i would ask for a another unit only if i had some permanent visible defect.
Two more defects are just reported. The first one is amoled defect but sammy denied to admit and answered no plan for remediation. For every s6 and s6 edge you can see the horizental line in the upper area of lcd when you set maximum brightneess and set background image as simple white.
And the second one is purple dot in the picture, you can see the small purple dot in the picture if you get focused. Sammy admit this purple dot defect and try to find the root cause.
bought s6 from sahara mall on 14.4.2015
On 25 04 2015 .the autorotation stopped and the set gets heated up when charged by its own charger i.e fast charging.Did number of factory resets but of no use.
Am really disappointed by choosing s6.Earlier i had s3.s4.s5.A3.all samsung but no issue for all these .But this S6 sucks.
morever u get replacement only if u hav a problem within seven days.so m out of this option too.

Also tell us what's that korean newspaper Name ? Or give me any reliable site that mention those malfunction you claimed
Knows your "customer's rights". You can always return the phone and ask for refund or change as long as you have your warranty card and receipt. This is very basic. You can always report to 'work department' if they refused. Scratches on phone cause warranty invalid as stated in term and condition(scratch is considered as damage). Please read the manual and t&c (they are given for a reason).
tumama, 08 May 2015do you have a ling to verify the information?Where got so many problems? He just bluffing here only! Most of the problems that he mentioned are false statements only!

Those buying a S6 Edge are clearly people having the means to afford it or just wanting to get such design masterpiece, not because they need a phone. As you said, there are 50$ phones available when "needed".
Then charts don't mean anything much besides clicks from visitors, many phones well sold don't appear in them if you look just a bit.
Why is it falling down n charts,daily losing interest, I am convinced that we are being scapegoat to Edge. 850$ is a fortune fr a cell, even when we already have two or more n use. This shows that we are cheapsters ad want something which is not need of the hour. I can do 100% same apps on Galaxy One HTC all that this does. It's appearance only apps ad all software ditto same. Resolution pixels screen size all secondary. I am typing same from S1 ad enjoying, resale is 50$ today, but writing n 2015 mid.
tumama, 08 May 2015i dont know why people is complaining if they have a defective phone send the phone to the ser... moreApparently, it's because "it's Samsung", when they get defective units from LG, Sony or Apple, they know that they can exchange it directly after buying or ask for refund.
3 of my direct friends and me took S6 Edge in various locations, none of us got a defective unit.
i dont know why people is complaining if they have a defective phone send the phone to the service centre and if you dont like the phone or have too much problems then ask for a refund
SpaceWarrior, 07 May 2015Hi mate I am glad you are enjoying your S6.
Would like to ask you something about it since I ... morehmm havent have any friends using s6 .
but overall camera much better than note edge. Thats for sure. Auto focus, the light at night shot that i can really see the difference.
