been using the phone for almost a month now everything is great about the phone , my only complaint is why Samsung hasn't release the firmware update to Australia yet . From what I know every where around has updated couple of weeks ago , and Australia !!! Damn we get it so slow then everyone else ~

Africa is always the place where I would love to visit someday--the place looks so fresh and natural. Must be exciting to take lots of pictures of beautiful landscapes there.....
Got an edge 2 weeks ago, am in zimbabwe, africa, absolutely no problems at all, best phone iv ever had, suoer fast, battery average, camera excellent.
If anything, you really need a pouch for this phone
AnonD-393866, 10 May 2015It is a neat phone and all, but why have bent edges on the side, will it be be easier to break... morevery simple...
Samsung emphasized to make this phone look special with design, therefore, it comes with curved screen.
The best looking phone so far on the planet.
BTW, has anyone seen the movie Age of Ultron?
I haven't yet, but I heard this phone is also presented in the movie besiees Galaxy tab, is it?
Too busy to go to movie theater....that is why I am asking.

It is a neat phone and all, but why have bent edges on the side, will it be be easier to break that way if you drop it face up. I've never even held the phone so I don't know.

And with forums, it's hard to distinguish whose who really have a hardware problem from whose who just aren't used to "fast phones" meaning with a fast cpu.
I mean having let's say a Snapdragon 200/400 is not the same using a phone with a Exynos or SD800+ class cpu.
Battery draining is another matter, since it's complex between software, firmware, or even user related (doesn't know how to set up his phone or its limits in daily usage). That's why i never bother with those complains. An exemple, once i had my Galaxy S1 perfectly working here in my home country, i went abroad for some vacation and i experienced real battery draining (data was off just to be sure) phone wasn't lasting a day, then i went back to home and everything went back to normal and i didn't change anything meanwhile. My guess was maybe the radio part not compatible with the country where i was..

if i han't bought it directly from Samsung like i did, i would make a complaint and request a new phone to the shop or go do what you did in a Samsung repair center (not in a phone shop).
Anonymous, 09 May 2015Sammy doesnt admit battery drain, overheating and freezing problems either even though many us... moreBattery draining exists on all phones. It's software (or firmware) related. And some fixes had already started to appear for S6 for those who have that problem if you follow the news.
If you had a S6, you would know that there's also a battery menu and at the bottom of it, there's a section listing anormal processes eating battery while screen is turned off. But you are busy trying to make some point because you think exchanging a brand new purchased Samsung S6 phone is impossible in case of real problems like [real] overheating especially in the legal refund period in any store.
Hermes Hidayat, 10 May 2015Wah Sam you from SG?hahaha.his S6 Edge got all the problem wan.from IC failure to Freezing.hahaha.No, I come from Malaysia.
Many people like to give false statements to misguide others here and other forum.
I am surprised that some people who send their phones to the service centre took a few weeks to repair. To tell you a secret, they don't need a few weeks but only 5 days to a week maximum to repair phone. Unless their shops have too many customer already booking for repair, your phone will be the last to be repair. Like they always said, first come first serves basis. If they take too long, just go pick up your phone regardless if they are fixed or not. Chances are, they don't even touch your phone yet while busy repairing the others phone for weeks. I always make an appointment and ask them to fix it in front of my eyes. Guess what? It only took them less than 3 hours if they really focus on it under my supervision.
Sam Cheong, 09 May 2015Where got so many problems? He just bluffing here only! Most of the problems that he mentioned... moreWah Sam you from SG?hahaha.his S6 Edge got all the problem wan.from IC failure to Freezing.hahaha.
AnonD-339145, 09 May 2015exynos also heat up as snp 810... my s6 edge heat up very badly...Yes Exynos 7420 heats up.but i doubt it heats up as much as SnapDragon 810 on the same conditions and usage.

Its not that Samsung doesnt wanna admit,but from lets say the total units sold,the ones who complained and did get to Samsung might be a really small percentage.most of the complains are stuck in forums.
Remember im not a Samsung fanboy.im an ALL brand fanboy.ive got BlackBerry,Asus,Motorola,Nokia,Windows,Apple,Xiaomi,Samsung,Sony,LG and i have seen worse things than most S6 Edge users have complained here.
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.
