I have one question? The screen size of the Galaxy S6 Edge is 5.1 Inch. I want to know that does this screen size includes the edge screen on both side? OR the screen size of S6 Edge is 5.1 inch + Edge screen on the both side extra? Does it mean that with Edge screen included, the screen size of S6 Edge is almost 5.3 inch with edge screen on both sides? Pls clarify this if anyone know anything about this.

however I have a big problem with not having a water proof feature, and certainly ridicules pricing considering there is nothing special about this phone and soon all the features of this phone will be absolute STANDARD across the board in upcoming phones.
Samsung has not delivered anything innovative and special, I believe they would not sell this unless they introduce a water proofing version WITHOUT loss of processing power or size,
there is NOTHING special here and as a big Samsung fan I am honesty so disappointed
Curved edges, is no registered trademark,BB and now Apple has announced curved edges in 6S. There is no big catch n inflating the price, to encash customers opinions. Paying fr a Sammy Curved Hdtv is same too.

From my experience this thing has cool camera,best display,fastest processor.
LaudSpeaker is not good.
Some user on reedit is claiming to have an unit temporarly, and he's answering a few questions :
I went to Frankfurt satar. to tak a look of gs6 edge.from this experience i just figure it out,this thing have a realy awosome look And the display is the best display,i have ever seen.But the laudspeaker is not good as much note 4.but the camera is fast.
At the end it is better than the previous gs5.
As a Samsung GS 1,3 and current 4 user,missed the GS5 out as it was no obvious improvement on the GS4.
GS6/ Edge looks the bomb to me.
Reviews agree. Let's see.
one bad feature is that it has no external memory. if something happens to the phone all my data will be corrupt. and if the pictures are saved in cloud, the quality will go down and internet is required to view the pictures.

Much better we leave our wallets home and let our S6s do the job when we go out.
Z4 nobody knows nothing about it (excepted the supposed leaked chassis), so all talking is pure speculation.

Also some people hold like three to four credit cards/debit cards. With Samsung Pay you just save all the credit cards information to the device then you don't have to carry that many cards everytime you go out. It's personal preference.
I know Z4 is coming out this year. I heard that Sony change their plan that they will release one flagship per year. Hope they don't struggle anymore in mobile market. I also admire Xperia series as much as I do with S series, but I hardly see any major changes from Z2 to Z3.
Maybe Z4 will become another story, good luck with that.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2015got this from pcpro.uk while browsing.
problem with AMOLED displays is that they... moreYes, Daytona arcade game has a nice burn in of the word Daytona in the top left corner.
Alright, for the second user of a display model phone, they might get a little screen worn unit.
I cannot think of too many people who actually leave a phone running at full brightness 24/7 with a static screen on.
Cause that is the worst case scenario that would lead to that effect.
Y'know how plasmas are downtalked for screen burn in (a problem common on sets in the nineties); did you also know that LCD screens can have the same effect.
It just takes a lot of time displaying a static image.
Plasmas burn in (on modern sets) is only really problematic for the first couple of hundred hours, and even then, will massage out with a little usage of regular moving pictures.
But it is an ACTUAL ISSUE with plasmas.
I reiterate. LCD can do this too.
SO who cares if every screen technology can have issues from uneven wear when fed a static image at high brightness for inordinate amounts of time (more than one owner would care to look at it, due to, you know, needing sleep)
For regular use it is a non issue.
My plasma had a recalibration done at 2000hrs so as to get my colour accuracy top notch.
Which my OLED Note 4 has out of the box (when running 'basic' profile for the screen)- the best/ most colour accurate screen on the market.
Sure my s2 had too warm a white balance, a yellow tinge to white screens if you will.
Modern Samsung phones actually come with a range of profiles though to suit a users tastes.
And if after a couple of years the blue pixels have magically worn out due to silly usage habits, no doubt someone will have released a profile that gets the screen back to a good base. A simple profile.. like what I ran on older OLEDs to make them perform better,.. and what I run on all my LCDs to make them look better,.. and what I do to any screen to make it better.
So who cares!
OLED is the best we have. Savvy consumers snapped up the last great plasmas (Panasonics) knowing they would tie us over until OLED sets arrived. (at an acceptable pricepoint).
When apple asked samsung for OLED (and samsung denied them) apple exec walked out of the meeting and said "at least our screen are colour accurate"; so samsung created a user profile system so users could have THE MOST ACCURATE DISPLAYS on the market.
Oh, my Galaxy S still runs perfect (though had a naturally warm and over saturated balance out of the box), and of the five other OLED devices in my house, they are all flawless (not even stuck/dead pixels)..
OLED doesn't go high power drain at huge resolutions, and with the exception of a pure white screen (which I would turn the brightness down on anyway), they have no negatives. I can handle a slightly higher than LCD power draw on a white screen if my media and EVERYTHING ELSE benefits from OLED goodness.
Anyhow I won't argue with idiots (they will drag me down to that level and beat me with experience); harsh, but I totally don't get the timewasters kicking around on these threads with phone envy..
Every time they are told why they are barking up the wrong tree they change to some new obtuse and inane argument.
These phones are awesome. Deal with it.
If you want to rant and rave about some other awesome phone, go finds its thread and rant and rave there..
Why anyone has to waste their life writing ill is due to other issues in their life.
Maybe the local milk company doesn't make a nice flavoured chocolate milk.
Myself, I have Bannister Downs, one of the best chocolate milks in the world, and I have no issues I have to release to countless others in a phone thread.
The technology is here. Deal with it Peoples.. just deal with it.

what is so exciting with paying by phone? please tell me that?
I use my card, the system works and it is fine
these gimmicks are just to fool the consumers, Samsung is offering nothing extordinary with this phone,
I admit the screen and interface are good and perhaps better than anything else in the market (at the moment), but that aside Samsung S6 and Edge are nothing innovative at all, and certainly very pricey.
did you know Sony Z4 will be coming to market soon and will be the most advance phone ever been made by anyone?
in 2 months time sony will throw a cold water to Samsung face and I tell you these phones will be struggeling to sell.
I am Samsung fan, I never had anything else but Samsung, but I am tired of seeing Samsung being STOPPED being innovative enough, they are no longer exciting, and certainly failed company soon,
they should have at least throw in the water proof feature with this phone, but they couldn't even achieve that!
