Android FAN, 20 Apr 2015why to have samsung Galaxy? why Samsung Having many regin for same model? when samsung will ... moreWhy buy Samsung you asked?Because they have the most number of service centres in comparison to other smartphone brands. They can be trusted more than non popular brand that dont even have service centres. Besides, they have spare parts(easily available) when phone is broken. More choices for casing and covers.
Just wanna share my rant on "don't buy s6 edge".
There was a wifi problem with the device that I purchased on the release date.
Would stay connected, but upstream / downstream freezes every 20~30 seconds. I tried on different network, security settings, and bandwidth, but problem persisted.
Then sent it for service at Samsung repair center, and I was promised of expedited service. More than a week passed, still no news.
I called the service center today, and found out that device is still sitting in the warehouse, waiting to be repaired. And here's why S6 is awful :
1. They have not fully tested S6 prior to its release. Lots of bugs (app crash / battery drain), which most of them are negligible, but ones like wifi problem, is critical. Good luck on picking the phone lottery.
2. Awful customer service. I had to call three times / chat twice, spending more than 4 hours to find out where my device is and whether it is being fixed or not. The service center promised for expedited service, as well as promised the date when I will get the device back, but only later found out those words were nothing but empty promise to dupe customers. Also, as I escalated my call to higher level agent (or manager), they were keep blaming on me and making falsified statements that I never received an expedited service - whereas, online repair tracker clearly indicates the device was sent in for an expedited service. Classic blame-game from incompetent / unwilling call agents. Prepare to be frustrated when you have issues with the phone. Expect more than an hour for a call.
BOTTOM LINE :
Do not buy the device. Don't be fooled by the looks. Service is awful at most.
Go ahead and buy iPhone or Moto X. They do not screw customer like Samsung, and they take responsibilities for faulty devices. People at Samsung do not respect your time, and would not acknowledge their fault in poor manufacturing. For this price tag, you all deserve better.
i read all this posts and its funny, i had galaxy s5 new and stolen some day ago so i bought iphone 6 now. battery is so much better in iphone its classy style phone good for business and camera..etc is not big deal both have great pics. but when i took this iphone 6 in my hand its like it have soul. Those who own it will know what i mean. Good luck whatever you buy and take care of it.

android VS IOS
Smasung Galaxy VS IOS iphone
i love android phone, but samsung they are creating bad image of android, where the iphone it will be the best phone if you compare it with samsung phone only, not with nexus.
Just switched from an iPhone S5 and purchased the 64gb black version, and honestly this is the best decision I've ever made. Phone is outstanding camera and design, battery far exceeds my expectations. Highly recommend, don't listen to all the haters.
Sony is done with phones. They have stated they are focusing on the PlayStation.

Hello friends, last week i bough this mobile. Its really awesome mobile with high speed performance and good quality camera. But high speed charge facility make the phone to heat during charging, istead we can charge the mobile using data cable which cause no heat.
AnonD-388243, 20 Apr 2015Im still waiting Z4....because more RAM, more PIXEL CAM, more EXCITING!!! First of all according to Samsung s6, s6 edge contain 3GB DDR4 RAM which is much faster than DDR3 RAM. 2nd thing is that camera quality is hardly dependent on MP. It's a commercial thing for the brands. My old smartphone Xperia C3 Dual had 8MP back camera of much lower quality than some of my friends' 5MP camera. Although have no experience with Sony flagship phones. Now using Note 4. But I believe that Sony's total annual sale almost equal to the sale of Samsung's one flagship phone ( total Samsung sale is almost 8 times that of Sony in 2014 ). After several disappointments from Sony, now I believe that Sony equivalent to wastage of money.
Im still waiting Z4....because more RAM, more PIXEL CAM, more EXCITING!!!

Hope Samsung can release a firmware update to address this issue . Surely its a a software issue .
Waiting for note 5 edge with dual curved display, dual 4G sim, at least 4 GB DDR4 RAM, 32/64 GB internal storage, micro sd card slot, 5.7 inch display with greater resolution and higher pixel density than s6 edge, s pen stylus with greater sensitivity and more awesome features, metal body with removable back cover ( if possible, if not glass-coating as in s6,s6 edge ), 4220 mAh battery with no heating issues ,micro USB 2.0 terminal, superfast charging , wireless charging system, Samsung pay, latest lollipop version at that time, Camera quality much improved than my note 4 with UHD video recording time 1 h , more improved front camera with LED flash, + all the features in my note 4 , fingerprint sensor as in s6 , improved s health system with some new features , golden colour, QHD display. Waiting to see how many of these wishes are fulfilled in note 5. World is waiting.

I'm glad you shared your experience. And i wanted to know if the "2sec" delay for displaying photos in true resolution means that photo appears like somewhat blurry first/low detailled, then it gets normal after 2sec ? Like a "2pass treatment" ?
