Holy the damn bezels and the back of the S6 and S6 Edge reflect the light so much judging from the pictures we got. Bad job from Samsung.

Look at this buthurt guy desperately trying to find ways to bash this phone. I'll tell you what : Unfortunately there is no phone out there (which includes your fav) that comes close to this phone as of now. Maybe the LG G4 in the future. This is as good it will get this year.

This year? Umm, the Note 5 will certainly be better and don't count out Apple as well.

Apple should always be counted out as their phones, best case, can compete with 1-2 year old Android flag ships spec wise. Name a single Apple pone topping the current Android flag ships at release?

I never said that the S6 is bad. On the contrary I think Samsung did a really good job overall. Don't start bitching around because I criticized your so loved S6 that you probably didn't even touched let alone used.

Yeah those damn bezels..... Are pretty slim.! And that damn reflective back..! Who in the hell has reflective glass..! Dammit samsung..! Why did you have to go and make such a beautiful device like this.! Damn you samsung..! I think this is what he really wanted to write.! He tried to find major design flaws and failed miserably.

There's an explanation based on what I heard during the event and reviews. The rear design according to them is like a jewel as it reflects light and produces different color tones as you tilt the device. It's a fingerprint magnet, the only flaw in the design IMO.

Let me guess. You own a iphone 6 huh..! Aww it's ok, Apple will make a major upgrade to thier iphone in a couple years. I've heard that they'll have at least a 10 megapixel camera by then..! Go troll somewhere else loser.

Maybe in 2016 Apple will release a phone that's as good as this. Keep your hopes up!

If I had to bash/troll on this phone it would be the glass backing. Poor choice of material. That camera however looks like it's going to kick all kinds of ass. The camera wars is going to be exciting! That battery and that screen resolution, i dont know if they'll play well together.

Look like great phones and I would like to get it for my next upgrade. BUT I'm disappointed with Samsung with removing both the microSD card and removable battery component of the Galaxy S phones. I would understand if they took out only the battery since they're saying that the new phone is more efficient. I have to wait and see if my carrier, Verizon will carry the 128GB version before making my decision to upgrade. They also could have bumped the RAM to 4GB to make it stand out amongst other brands.
